    The Office "Andy's Ancestry" Review: What Is Wrong With Andy?

    I felt pretty crappy about this week's episode. There were things I liked, but overall, it wasn't nearly as sharp as the last two.

  • Episode Summary

    Andy discovers that he may be a distant relative of Michelle Obama. His elation turns to embarrassment after his employees jump to some negative conclusions about his family. Meanwhile, Pam bonds with Nellie, leading to an emotional and surprising confrontation with Jim.

      A real throwback feeling to this episode to the good old days of this show. Pam and Nellie in the field was reminiscent of the sales calls we used to see the gang go on, and Catherine Tate was actually funny in this episode.



      The Andy storyline was not terrible, but they could have done so much more with it. Maybe have Creed give his thoughts on it?



      Surprisingly somewhat enjoyable though.moreless

      Wow, while it may not have the pizazz it had with Michael Scott, this season is kicking arse so far! For example, this season of the office is way funnier than Modern Family. I don't know if that's supposed to emphasize how good The Office is or how BAD Modern Family has gotten.. haha



      Anyway, good story, great jokes. Awesome opener with Dwight! Keep it up!
