Pretty Funny, but Not Great
10 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode had a lot of humorous moments. The opening sequence between Jim, the fax machine, Dwight, and "Future Dwight" was among the best opening sequences yet. Michael's comments about "Bowling for Columbine"---"I thought it was gonna be more like Kingpin"---were hilarious. The Stanley and Ryan/Kelly stuff was also great. My one problem is the plot itself. I feel that the show is selling out with Jim moving back. They had a great thing going in Stamford, now they give that up to bring this stupid love triangle crap to Scranton. I was very disappointed in the writers. I do hope the Ed Helms character follows Jim and the girl to Scranton. The dichotomy between he and Dwight could be gold. I felt that the episode could have been split into 2 parts. I felt that it was rushed. One moment Jan was at one branch, the next moment the other branch. Everything seemed to get resolved much too quickly. The episode as a whole was good, but there were more funny moments than a completely humorous episode.
