  • And before that, me again

    That was the funniest episode of the Office I've seen since Michael Scott left (besides the interviews at the end of last season). This was a fantastic episode! Wow, now I'm FINALLY starting to see how they could actually make this work without Steve Carell in spite of the fact that he obviously made the show better. Dwight and Ryan were killin it tonight!
  • Another very boring installment

    Andy forces the remaining Scranton staff to work overtime to make up for all the people in Tallahassee, where Dwight and Packer vie to be Nellie's vice president. Like I said in my previous review "Tallahassee", I think this season has been very good and the writers have been really pulling off this season without Steve Carell but this episode was boring just like the previous episode "Tallahassee". It was another Dwight episode and it was yet boring and kinda repetitive. I mean, the "bed bugs" thing was pretty ridiculous to me. I know other reviewers gave this episode positive reviews and I respect your opinions so please respect mine please. I've seen WAY funnier and better episodes than this episode and the previous episode "Tallahassee". Hopefully, the next episode will be better but I have seen two very boring and repetitive episodes in a row. Like I've said, it's very very rare for me to hate an episode of this show and I tried really to laugh at least once but I just couldn't. I just didn't feel it or laugh once. Overall, two very boring and repetitive "The Office" episodes in a row. 1/10
  • this reminded me of the show I loved

    This episode was what the show needs to be. Don't try to find the next Michael Scott, show the rest of the characters off, whether they're being snarky, catty, lazy, rude, whatever. There is enough there to build around without trying to force Andy into the Scott role. Also, nice to see Darryl and Val with the others and not just as an aaside in the warehouse. loved Kelly demanding to see the text! And if Cartherine Tate isn't channeling David Brent, she is really trying to see how close she can get before Ricky gervais tells her to stop.
  • One of the best!

    As mmmshuddup said before me - one of the best episodes so far. Ricky and Stephen proved they can do it without Michael Scott. Most shows would die after such change but not this one...
