Taste the ice cream: 'The Office' webisodes preview

If I've done this right, this post should go live while I'm somewhere over Duluth, on my way to press tour, and right around the time that the first of this four's summer webisodes of "The Office" -- subtitled "The Office: Kevin's Loan" -- goes live over at NBC.com.

I've seen all four (they total about 10 minutes when watched back to back), and while they're not as funny as the webisodes from a couple of summers ago -- that one featured the entire accounting department, while this one is primarily Kevin, with occasional helpings of Oscar and (in by far the series' highlight) Daryl -- any taste of Dunder-Mifflin in the summer is a good thing. I should add that they get better as they go along (especially once, again, Daryl shows up for the third installment), but you need to watch all four to appreciate some of the jokes at the end.

The premise: Kevin's gambling debts have reached such epic proportions that he's trying to figure out a way to get a small business loan to pay off his bookie.

The accounting one was good? Is it still available online? I figured it would be weak, though in defense, this was when everyone other than the four from the British version (and Ryan) was still very much in the background.
