What I'm Watching: The Office

The Office: Season 5, Episode 3 "Baby Shower" (B+)

It's just like Jan to have her baby before her baby shower just so that she can use the event to break the news to Michael. It's really too bad, because Michael was prepping so hard with fake watermelons to help out with the birth. It was uncomfortable seeing Michael continually be so mean to Holly, but at least there's a happy, somewhat awkward ending in store for them. Jan has really become such a detestable, manipulative, awful character. Dwight's side plotline of testing the indestructibility of the baby carriage was a real hoot. The closing missed calls and voicemails between Jim and Pam are hopefully an acknowledgment of the fact that their relationship will stand the test of time. They still were finishing each others' sentences, even if they couldn't reach each other at the same time.
