The Office 'Crime Aid': Too couplicious?

'Crime Aid' Spoilers Included!


On The Office this season, we've gotten a newbie possibility, an exciting adorableness yet New York-ness of our dear favorite, and a nerdy love triangle.


At the end of last season, Michael and Holly were merely a possibility, JAM was perfection but not engaged, and the Dwight-Angela-Andy debacle was a perfect mess of engagement and a tawdry hook-up of hopefully real love.


But this week on 'Crime Aid,' it got down to the heart of the matter for all of these Office couple situations - Michael and Holly actually went on a date - in fact, moved to their 3rd date and some in-office messing around, Jim and Pam were still perfect but very apart as Jim ran into Roy and realized maybe they weren't as solid as he thought, and Dwight gave Angela an ultimatum to choose Andy or "all this," which she apparently didn't want.


So is this too much couple drama for our favorite ridiculous comedy or is it completely satisfactory to have our beloved characters all working out their romantic happiness?

Well, you have to have these episodes sometimes. They have to move the character's lives along to make better situations for more good humor. This episode did have some non-couple stuff that was good too. For example Creed. "The last person to steal from me disappeared. His name was Creed Bratton." :) I got a kick out of that line.

I am glad that Michael got to have some happiness with someone just like him. It's quite funny though, that as soon as Jan told Michael not to date Holly, he immediately jumps on board the idea of FINALLY hitting the nail with her. I loved Holly from day one, she is the only one that really gets Michael compared to Jan who was only interested in the ride and not the company. Though basically, I'm following the Michael-Holly thing especially from the hug they shared in last week's episode, definitely made them my favorite couple. As for Jim and Pam, Jim totally has nothing to worry about with Pam, that kind of friendship they have together only happens once, I'm glad he turned his car around. Well Dwight continues to be his goofy self, still don't understand how Angela could marry Andy, when she made Dwight her 'booty call' to get out of dealing with the marriage to begin with, but time would tell.

"Too"? Not really, they had to focus on something this week. It felt a little rushed, as usual. The Michael-Holly thing is cute on the outside, but can you see the subtle reactions? It doesn't feel right, even though it should. You could also sense that Holly isn't liked all that much, after the yoga session auction. Michael cares about her enough though, so maybe it'll be fine and I'm just over analyzing. As for Pam and Jim.. Well, I think there's something going on. Notice how they don't talk much, she always cuts him off, they have a lot of, "Off" days. And.. she's already going out, plus she has a new job there? I understand she wanted to take an art class or whatnot, but it seemed so very underplanned and rushed, and not needed. There's something going on there, and they aren't showing us, yet. Dwight and Angela are laughable, I don't understand why he continues to like/love her when she really doesn't want anything but the ocassional sex in a closet. It's really really cute to see Andy try and change how he things and what he wants for Angela. She's like a very mean little teddy bear, wanting childish things and getting very mean about them. The one thing I don't get was the suprise entrance by Dunder-Mifflin CFO, David Wallace. Did anyone else find that a little weird? Besides his auction he was put on the burner for much of the episode, save for the last bit when it looked like he was really concerned with Michael-Holly. It was a decent episode in anycase, could do with a bit more, not sure of what, though.

surely if they did, so much like the dwight affair would have been discovered?

Is it just me, or does anyone else think Dwight might start trying to win Phyllis over? Maybe as a way to make Angela jealous? I mean first there was that last interview with him - "I'll tell you what Phyllis did wrong - stuck her nose into my business and tried to help me." And then the look on his face - and then he bid $700.01 on one of her hugs... there's gotta be something there guys!

I didn't mind. They have to do some story twists and follow their lives to keep the show going. It can't just be Jim pulling pranks on Dwight all the time. Also, I agree with lexabuti. That was hilarious when Michael completely disobeyed Jan when usually she has such a hold on him. I don't think it helped her to much that she didn't hardly let Michael hold the baby.

Still such a funny episode!
"Michael gave me a list of his top ten Bruce Springsteen songs. Three were Huey Lewis and the News, one was Tracey Chapman, 'Fast Car', and, my personal favorite, 'Short People'."
