The Office - Producer's Cut

I was so happy to see that NBC posted a producer's cut (i.e. extended version) of last week's episode of The Office, which can be found here.

I loved that we got to see more of the gang in action. Specifically, there is this one quick shot of Creed, Meredith and others at Oscar's "Welcome Back/Mexican-nity" party wearing these ... uh, let's call them facial decorations that just had me laughing out loud.

Also, there was a closing credit scene where we got to see the fate of Andy. I can't believe they cut that for some stoopid Heroes promo.

So there's only one Stamford employee left at the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin - big question is how long will Karen stay now that she knows Jim's true feelings???

Overall, an awesome episode... and I needed it because for some sick reason I decided to watch last week's Grey's Anatomy again! As the family gathered around Daddy O'Malley to shut down the life support, the waterworks started up yet again. And then when George said to Christina, "I don't know how to exist in a world where my father doesn't." ... oy - the tears! I guess sometimes we all enjoy a good cry. Or maybe that's just me.

2 fascinating comment(s) from my friends:

Since I hadn't gotten to see much of the real version, the producers cut was awesome. The show makes me cringe so much - I seriously just wanted to smack Andy since I TOTALLY have known people like that. Loved it when Michael was hiding behind the door in his office...

Have to agree with you that the Mexican hats with the facial hair was AWESOME. Dan thought I was deranged since I kept bursting out in laughter watching this show.

Glad your blog is back today - I had a bit of withdrawl this morning when i couldn't find it!! :)
