Another episode of The Office has come and gone and it brings with it one of the most uncomfortable character in television history, Michael Scott. This was a nice episode which had Michael Scott making a promise and then telling kids that he would not be able to pay for their tuition and we also get to see Dwight set his diabolical plan into action.

It’s weird how The Office can pack so much into a 30 minute episode and then it packs so little. I have to say that I did like this episode, but this was probably one of the least funny episodes ever.
I’m having trouble figuring out if I like this storyline very much. Sure it’s realistic and very relevant to what’s going on today, but when have you ever heard someone say that they like The Office for its realistic storylines?
This week’s episode ... Read More

A lot of people think The Office has gotten stale with this last season. I still enjoy The Office and admit that there have been a couple of missteps this season, but The Office still continues to be a funny show. With this episode, it’s nice to have focus on Dunder-Mifflin and not worry too much about the characters themselves. This episode puts Dunder-Mifflin in a very interesting position that I'm looking forward to see play out.
I’m definitely glad that everything is ... Read More

There have been many times over the years where Michael Scott has given us uncomfortable moments and believe it or not this episode may eclipse any other episode that I can think of when it comes to uncomfortable moments. It’s not a bad uncomfortable moment, but just one of those “Michael Scott” type of moments where you’re worried about what’s going to happen next. There was a lot of good content packed into the thirty minutes and this is definitely one ... Read More

The opening for “Koi Pond” lacked a bit when it comes to some of the openings of the past. The whole Halloween concept though felt a little lost when compared to the rest of the episode. They didn’t mention Halloween once in the rest of the episode.
“Koi Pond” had Jim expecting to go off on his own on a business meeting, but finding out that the clients feel more comfortable if Michael comes. It was interesting to see Jim actually be ... Read More

Let’s get right into it. This week we find out that Jim is still seeing Pam’s mother. It was nice of Michael to tell Jim, and Jim's immediate reaction was to keep it from Pam. You have to love the set-up of Pam coming to give Michael a gift and then wanting to know whose mother Michael is sleeping with and it turning out to be her own mom. Pam’s reaction is one of those priceless moments that I think we’ll ... Read More

“Mafia” was one of the funnier standalone episodes of this season, I can’t remember laughing out loud as many times as in this episode this season and it’s cool that going into its sixth season that the zany adventures of Michael Scott and friends still make me laugh.
I’m not sure, but is this the first episode that Pam and Jim are physically not seen? I didn’t think much had changed with the two out of the office, but Oscar was right -- ... Read More

Most television shows would over-dramatize an episode like this and try to get you to cry. Fortunately, The Office isn’t like most television shows and you can guess that Pam and Jim’s wedding ends up being a huge mess, but there was a lot of laughter to go around.
It’s finally time for Pam and Jim’s big wedding day and it’s great that the writers didn’t keep dragging us along and try to hold off on doing this until somewhere around the ... Read More

"The Promotion" is the first episode where we get to see how Jim and Michael will deal with each other now that they’re both running things at Dunder-Mifflin. With two bosses I wondered if things would change around the office.
Fortunately for the most part nothing has changed, and the opening showed us that as Jim continued to play tricks on Dwight which involved Jim having to put in a complaint about him from Dwight. One of the things that changed is ... Read More

The Office kept the season rolling with episode two of this fifth season when they put Michael in a very peculiar spot. With Jim and Pam having a baby, it’s nice to see that Jim is looking to advance in his career and decided to put in a plan for promotion with the company. If Jim didn’t get the job, he would leave and go somewhere else. Michael’s desperation to want to be part of everything was funny and his silly idea ... Read More
