Spend More Time At "The Office"
The online version of the show available at nbc.com now contains a "producer's cut" that is a few minutes longer. This is actually annoying, since fans of "The Office" should appreciate that the show is a carefully crafted series -- if something is left out of the show, there's usually a very good reason. Just throwing on scraps to make it longer can ruin the rhythm of a very delicate machine. A few extra beats and a funny joke becomes tiresome.
