The Office ended its run of hour-long episodes this week with "Money", written by Paul Lieberstein. I hate to break it to you Dunderheads, but the reviews for Season 4 thus far have been not so great. Our little mid-range North-Eastern Penn. based paper company can't seem to catch a break as TV Guide jeers Jim and Pam for being dull, Slate says Ryan is a one-dimensional villain, LA Times thinks Michael's antics are over the top, and pretty much everyone agrees the hour-long format hasn't done the show any favors. Now, it will take a lot to make me stop loving this show, but I have been worried that Jim's little quip about the magic being gone in "Dunder Mifflin Infinity" has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. But that's the thing about The Office; just when I start to have doubt, they hit me with an episode that leaves me smiling, satisfied, and wanting more.
