The Office: Jim should go for it with Karen
Kudos to the writers for finding a way to put off the number one killer of sitcoms -- the hooking-up of long-unconsummated lovers. Jim appears to be the guy in the office who can't get through the tedium of a day without a little sexual tension. Who can blame him, when the other choices are pushing paper products or team-building exercises gone wild?
I like Pam -- but does she -- does anyone -- need to jump right from breaking up a multi-year engagement and cancelling a wedding to yet another another long-term relationship? I'm not sure how Pam really feels about Jim. She could certainly tell that, whatever feelings she had about Jim, she couldn't marry Roy either way. I found it impossible to tell what she ever saw in Roy in the first place, though we don't know what she was like when they first started going out. Maybe he was just the most persistent guy back in high school, or something. Pam doesn't know what she wants.
Karen (Rashida Jones) won me over when she did that little move making the tiny paper-clip explosion. I hope she won Jim over too. Go for it Jim!
