  • THE BEGINNING OF THE END

    The Office's Season 9 Premiere: Pray Until You're a Cat Person

    All in all, "New Guys" was a decent season premiere for The Office.

  • Episode Summary

    The office has two new faces, Clark and Pete. When Clark gets the nickname "the New Dwight" and Peter becomes "the New Jim," it causes existential crises on the part of both Dwight and Jim. The two older workers have to figure out their future plans at the Scranton branch.

      The two new guys don't add anything to the series which is desperate for new characters that bring something new to the now boring environment of the office. I don't know why I keep watching this

      This was not a bad episode of The Office. It established the two new characters well, but it also established the cliches we can expect to see in the final season: Jim and Pam have a rough patch over his new job, and Michael probably returns to get them back together in the end.



      Not a Clark Duke or Jake Lacy fan, but they worked well and are okay additions either. This really felt more like a throwback to Season 2 than a newer show, so that's probably why I didn't mind it.moreless
