  • The wedding of Jim and Pam

    10
    For some people this was years in the making. There was a lot of buildup and it didn't disappoint. This site made the choice to split into two episodes but if you watch, it's best to watch as one episode. This episode was good even with some weird things happening. Dwight as a ladies man? Yes you read that right. The women (a friend of Pam) was normal. Only one other time a women was interested in him (season 5 Valentine's episode) and Dwight showed none interest at all. It was even weirder that she wasn't turned off by Dwight's ways. I loved Dwight's choice of shirt. It was a shout out to The Hangover. I also wish that at least some of the wedding party was shown. That could've been a whole new episode. This being Jim and Pam I can understand.

    Even with all of that there was much more good then bad. Kevin's hair piece was pretty funny as well as his I also liked that Pam's sister thought Kevin was Oscar's boyfriend. Speaking of Kevin and Oscar, they were really great in this episode. Another good thing was Andy. It was very amusing that he injured himself. It was nice to see Erin helping him out. The dance off remained me of the Cafe Disco episode. The scene with Jim, Dwight, Michael, and Pam's friend was also very good. I loved the speech Jim made about Pam. It might have been the best speech he has made. It didn't lose any luster when he accidentally revealed that Pam was pregnant. It was one of the few times Jim screwing up was funny. Great choice to play Pam's grandma. There were many other great parts to this episode but the best might have been the ending. Normally a dance number wouldn't work for this show but this one was done wonderfully. I really loved that the wedding was done at Niagara Falls Maid of the Mist but at the same time the church wedding was done. It was a nice mix of the two weddings. The ending was simply perfect.moreless

    Part one of Pam & Jim's wedding, definitely a hilarious episode, and I am very impressed with season 6 so far, season 5 pales compared to this. The cold opening was one of my favorites of The Office. Everyone starting to the throw up almost seemed unreal but hysterical. I felt like I was watching an episode of Family Guy rather than The Office in the beginning, but it was still hysterical regardless.



    Not only did this episode offer hilarity, it offered development and emotion that I'm sure got everyone at least almost tearing up. The development of course was Jim & Pam getting ready for their wedding, but then Jim blows it when he is giving a toast. Everyone is trying to keep a secret from Pam's grandmother, that she is pregnant.



    Everyone expected Michael to blow the secret, but Jim eventually does it. The grandmother was surprisingly hilarious, everything about this episode was funny, a really great episode. Jim's toast to Pam was the sweetest and it really tied together all of those "little moments" Jim & Pam have shared over the years.moreless
  • The wedding - part 1

    7.6
    I am actually happy for the show right now. The previous episode was a good, part 1 of this 1 hour run was pretty darn good.



    I was actually disappointed after watching the cold open. Not only was the whole serial vomiting gross, it was a straight rip off from Family Guy. But the ones following the commercial kind of counterbalanced the incident. The scenes where Oscar gets offended after Pam's sister thinks he and Kevin are a couple, and Michael remarking that a queen-sized bed would be bad idea for Stanley and his girlfriend, are just the kind of jokes Office needs to produce. A lot of scenes were quite funny. Ok, off to part 2.moreless
  • This had the highest expectations from me- and it delivered!

    This was about as perfect an Office episode as I could ask for.



    I'll start by saying I wasn't the biggest fan of Jim and Pam as a couple. I always enjoyed the will-they/won't-they relationship drama, which unlike most TV shows, played more realistically and natural here than on any other show I'd ever seen. Making them a couple broke a few rules of television; i.e. dragging it out as long as possible (see: Chuck) and they were so sweet and doe-eyed for each other, it kind of made me want to puke. For the most part they suffered no real relationship drama, and both characters softened up a bit and lost a little of their individual edge, which I liked so much about them. Throw on top of that a rushed engagement (and now, pregnancy) and annoying fan nicknames like PB&J or 'Jam' and I would attest half of the reasons the last few seasons of The Office were weak was partly because Jim and Pam were together- it just wasn't very interesting. But I'm in the minority there, and most Office fans were anticipating this wedding more than any other event I can think of on television. There was a lot to live up to here, and I think this 2-partner delivered in an amazing way. It was clever how the show still managed to be about Michael (who is the star of the show, after all) and him not having a booked hotel room was not only perfectly typical, but provided some great moments at Dwight's mercy, and a hilarious shot of him ironing in the vending machine room! Speaking of Dwight, seeing him get action with one of Pam's cousins felt oddly satisfying for some reason. His behavior afterwards totally kept in character as well. Most of the supporting players felt a little underused, but it was great to just to have everyone here. There were some nice moments like when Andy tore his scrotum, and esp an insulted Oscar at the idea that he'd be with Kevin, lol. (Kevin's cleanex box shoes were a stretch). But, the standout scene of the evening had to be the dinner toast. I will say no more, except that you must see it for yourself!



    The wedding itself was of course, a debacle, but the highlight (and I believe the show will get an Emmy nod for this episode) was Jim and Pam sneaking away to the actual falls, and getting married their way. The music, which started off silly, somehow became appropriately perfect over the montage of Jim and Pam on the boat, while their wacky friends danced away at the chapel. Cutting between the personal wedding and the wedding for friends and family was simply...beautiful. I actually cried. (something I almost NEVER do watching tv- that isn't sports)



    My biggest question is where does the show go from here, because this certainly had the feel of a season finale. It looks like Michael got some action with Pam's mom (!) and I would rather they not go any further with that plot than just a surprising one-night-stand at the end of the show. Let this episode stand alone. It's that good. 'Niagra' will be considered one of the best episodes of The Office of all time. Wait and see.moreless
  • I liked Part 1 better than Part 2.

    Part 1 of the incredibly funny episode "Niagara" was great. It was fun and interesting to see all of the office characters in Niagara Falls for the Jim and Pam wedding. Michael trying to save the day after Jim accidentally ruins his own wedding (not completely but..) was really funny and overall the Me Maw plot was great. The lines from Andy and Kevin were really funny throughout, and this episode was reminiscent of "Stress Relief" for the amount of hilarious visual gags. Although parts of the episode like the rehearsal dinner were meant to be romantic those scenes were also awkward. Jim accidentally spilling the beans about Pam being pregnant was interesting to watch. Overall, great, great episode.moreless
