Summary: If you were on the NBC Message boards, then chances are you came across The Jim Paradox. This is the original post that triggered almost three seasons of meticulous character analysis. The following is a summative analysis of Jim in Seasons 1 and 2 focusing primarily on his emotional status and actions. He made a big move in Casino Night after years of waiting on the sidelines. While Pam has always been viewed as the one preventing JAM, Jim plays an equal role in whether the relationship will happen.

Summary: If you were on the NBC Message boards, then chances are you came across The Pam Dichotomy. This is the original post that triggered almost three seasons of meticulous character analysis. The following is a summative analysis of Pam in Seasons 1 and 2 focusing primarily on her emotional duality. Casino Night was a huge cliffhanger and we weren’t sure if JAM was ever going to happen! Followers of the original message board thread aligned as either JAM Optimists or JAM Pessimists.
