Stanley Hudson: Yes, I have a dream, and it's not some MLK dream for equality. I want to own a decommissioned lighthouse. And I want to live at the top. And nobody knows I live there. And there's a button that I can press, and launch that lighthouse into space.

Not Great
22 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The "A" story, Michael and the gang trying to cash in on Ryan's website idea, was a strong starting point that fizzled off into nothing. Ryan is a very boring character, and basing an episode on him is never inspiring. Pam serves as a medium between Ryan's influence on Michael and Michael's grasp on reality concerning his relationship with Ryan. The main thing that is wrong with this is that it is not strong enough to be the "A" story in this episode. The obstacles to overcome were not interesting enough, plus Stanley's short confessional was blame dumb.

The "B" story was nothing short of brilliant. So much real-life Scranton history is presented here, and the Angela/Dwight contract is voided after Angela is left waiting and discovers a new love interest. Some very funny jokes are complemented by story advancements that really leave me wanting more. This should have been developed as the "A" story for this episode.

The "C" story is where I REALLY have a lot of problems. Jim hits a cap on his earnings? Wait a second, I thought that Dwight was the best salesman in the office? Didn't Michael persuade a new traveling salesman with the thought of unequaled wealth through commission to join his team? Jim would not have been the first salesman to hit the cap, which angers me that the writers made up such a shallow story to include Jim's character in this episode.

All in all, the episode wasn't totally weak. The "B" story saved it for me after a weak plot in the "A" story. The "C" story was obviously made at the last minute by the less talented writers. I give it a 6/10 concerning all episodes of the series.
