The Office 'Double Date' Review

I really didn't believe that this thing between Michael and Pam's mother would last longer than an episode. Michael is not really relationship material and the only person that really complimented him was Holly. So I wasn't really routing for his new relationship, especially since he he referred to his lover as 'The Mom'. What was uncalled for was Pam assaulting Michael the way she did. Anyone that breaks up with someone on their birthday upon realizing their true age is a huge loser, but I really think that Pam knew the relationship wasn't going to last as she rightfully pointed out in 'The Lover'. So maybe it was the hormones? Anyone who slaps their boss doesn't get away with their job in tact and I truly believed it was disrespectful of her to cross that line.

Pam got really hysterical when it came to Michael dating her mother, which means that she may actually have a close relationship with her. Still, Jim could have intervened somehow and as a Co-manager he could have done more, but as Pam's husband siding with Pam would do him good. I don't always support Michael's crazy stunts, but Pam's mother was in a phase zone, crazy enough to fall for her daughter's boss. She knew what she was getting into, I sure she just wanted a moment of fun more colorful than what her marriage was like.

The Double Date was interesting enough; more awkward than fun. It was funny to see Pam try to get out of it by faking an important call, but Jim definitely wasn't going to be the third wheel.

Okay so this was an interesting episode. I don't know why Pam seems t be annoying a lot lately, let's hope things die down since Michael and her mother went separate ways.

Dwight and Andy's thing was well...just 'The Office' like I guess, let's hope they are even this time. There wasn't any updates with Dwight's recording device he planted in Jim's office. I wonder what's he up to?
