I agree it usually doesn't compare to The Office, but it's still vastly more funny than this year's new comedy shows like Cougar Town & Community.

I agree. Very funny episode & that line you mention was inspired. I also loved the revelation of Duke Silver.

Thoroughly agree, I think last nights episode has been the best so far

It was funnier than last weeks Office episode. I'm waiting on the two parter with fear and trepidation...

Didn't really get why he would be embarassed about Duke Silver though. Who cares if some of the fans are old or a bit mad cat lady, he's still got a room full of women falling at his feet!

Great episode, Dave is so nice!

Another cracker of an episode this week, with the visit from the Venezuelans. This is easily the most consistently funny US comedy show at the moment.

If anything, this weeks was funnier than last weeks. The main Venezuelan guy was comedy gold.

I really liked Tom at the end putting his tips in the 'Fill in the hole' fundraiser thing, a nice touch. This show is better than the Office at the moment.

Just started watching this, feel like I need to rush through S1 to get to S2 as you're all raving about it

Watched the first 3 episodes of S1. Not hilarious but amusing enough to keep me interested.

There is a big jump in quality for season 2. There's not many episodes of season 1 (6 i think) so you'll soon be up to speed.

Do you want to mention that it's now really hit its stride, again?

Caught up on this now, it makes an excellent show to go alongside The Office, and certainly funnier in parts.

Loved that they got another slapstick-jump from Andy in this week, hilarious

Another beauty of an episode again this week. I liked Ron right from the start but thought his character was one-dimensional but this season he's been a revelation. Who'd have thought Librarians could be so EVIL?

Leslie/Amy's looks to camera, when Ron was talking about sex with Tammy and when he said she could have the day off, were brilliant!

Evil librarian Ron's ex-wife woman was pretty funny, apparently in real life she actually is the wife of the actor that plays Ron, which might be why the diner scene was so good

Think I slightly preferred last week's Greg Pikitis / Halloween Party one though, that was genius, her hatred for Pikitis was well played!
