  • Robert California's wife comes to Dundler Mufflin when she needs a job and Andy is put in the awkward position of hiring her when he doesn't want to


    Andy is put in an awkward position when Robert tells him not to hire his wife, who's hoping of getting a job in the office. Dwight tries to convince Darryl to join his fitness center. I thought that this was a great episode of "The Office". It wasn't the best and it could have been a little better but I thought it was overall enjoyable. I don't know why everyone is saying that this show is "jumping the shark". To be honest, this show is NOT "jumping the shark" and the show is still funny even without Steve Carell. I do hope that Steve Carell comes back in an episode where he comes to visit. That would be very cool to see. Although, my problem with this season is how we're focusing less on everyone doing their work and mostly episodes that focus on Robert California. Robert California is just giving me mixed bags. Speaking of issues, he was actually my biggest issue in this episode. I did not like how Robert just keeps making Andy feel more uncomfortable and awkward by pretty much forcing Andy to hire Robert's wife. It was nice to meet Robert California's wife and she was a pretty decent character but not my favorite. My other problem was the very very very ending of the episode... that was just lazy written and lame right there. As for the humor, I didn't laugh a lot but there were some laughs such as Creed's cameo appearance, Robert telling Andy "Son of a b****" when Andy is telling Robert's wife the real story that Robert made him give her the job or something like that and more. Overall, a great episode of "The Office". 8.5/10
