Thursday night has always been my favorite night of the week, what with classes being over and being able to go downtown and all that other good stuff. But I’ve gotta say, NBC adding a half hour to new episodes of “The Office” is really taking the night to a whole new level. I was skeptical at first, but the extra-long episodes aren’t lacking in quality at all. In fact, I think they’re better than ever.

Bravo to everyone involved with that show. I know the work is long and probably pretty hard, but you always leave me satisfied and smiling at the end of the night.
