Here's the Due Date for Jim and Pam's 'Office' Baby

Jim and Pam
Babies can be beautiful, welcome addition to real-life families, but they can signal the downfall of a TV show. A baby can mean that a show is desperate to try something new to liven up a once-great show, or it can be a ploy to get more people interested in it because the kids that have been on the show have gotten older and they need new youngsters.

We'll have to wait and see if the baby that Pam will have on 'The Office' will be a good thing for the show or a bad thing. The baby will make its debut in a special one-hour episode that will air on March 4. In the same episode, Erin will have lunch with Kevin, making Andy jealous.

One good thing about a baby on 'The Office' is that it's a workplace sitcom, not a domestic sitcom. So there won't be any big reasons for Jim and Pam's baby to be at Dunder-Mifflin all the time, it will probably be at home with a sitter or with relatives or at a nursery (only not the one from last week's episode, of course).

The Sabre storyline looks like it will open up a lot of very funny possibilities. Kathy Bates is already butting heads with Michael and that promises fireworks and surprises. The baby is most likely a non issue for future episodes but the writers seem to have found a way to breathe new life into this always fun show.

There's still a lot of life in this show. As written in the above article, the baby shouldn't be around too much. I hope they keep the David Wallace character around. In fact, it would be great if Sabre decides to make the Scranton office a second headquarters, and have David Wallace start hanging out with Michael and Jim and the gang. I hope the Wallace character doesn't just deteriorate the way Jan did.

This show should've ended with the wedding. Babies never make sitcoms better. It's time to wrap up some storylines and call it a day.

I respectfully disagree. I think there are still funny and touching stories to be told with these people.
