Trivia

In the scene with the "Five Families", one of the actors, Paul Faust was the only first-time actor. Faust is the cousin of writer Paul Lieberstein, and had been on a tour of the set and talked to many of the writers. He made a good impression and so the character of "Cool Guy Paul" was based on him. The day before they were scheduled to shoot, the show still had not cast anyone for the role, so they called Paul in New York City and had him read the lines into a camera and e-mail to them. In less than an hour, Faust had landed the part and was flown out to Los Angeles. See more »

Goofs

Whether intentional or not, the license plate shown on Andy's car is an obvious fake. Standard PA license plates are 3 letters followed by 4 numbers. The registration sticker should be in the lower left corner. The website address is incorrect. The current plates use www.visitpa.com and not www.state.pa.us. See more »

I'm so glad it's back!!!
19 April 2008 | by sjss-1See all my reviews

The chair model episode reminded us of what we have been missing for the past 4 months. Dinner Party wasn't bad, but it wasn't the like the others and only contained about half the cast. I think that the writers picked up on this which is why they incorporated a great little bit with Andy and Kevin. Ed Helms is excellent in this episode and the old Michael appears as dumb as ever.

We also get a glimpse of the future of Pam and Jim, pretty juicy stuff. I hope they are able to keep making their relationship funny.

10 out of 10, Keep em comin.

P.S.- The Dance by Andy had me laughing for about 15 minutes.
