  • Jim's new job

    When Dunder Mifflin closed the Buffalo Branch it left more work for the Scranton Branch. This lead to David Wallace coming to a decison coming down and discussing it with Jim. As with the previous episode, I thought that Michael wanting to know what was happening came as too needy even desperate. His plan to spy in was not that funny. I think that this could've been done better. It was made even worse when Michael tried to screw Jim out of the job. Although he did not did this intentionally. Another part of this episode I didn't like was Pam trying to keep everyone from attending her wedding. I can understand not wanting to invite everyone but why elope or just have a small wedding with family?

    What saved this episode was Dwight and Toby. This was the first extened interaction between them outside the office. The only thing I didn't like was Dwight being kind of right about Darryl. Still there was more good then bad to this storyline. I loved Toby calling out what he thought was Darryl. I also like the agreement that Darry and Dwight come to. If you had been watching the series for this long I don't need to tell you who was the loser in this situation.

    As with the start of this season, not a strong episode by any means but does have some laughs.moreless

    A really great episode of The Office, nothing of this episode was ridiculous and we got the humor of the earlier seasons without having an over the top episode. These are the episodes The Office really need to be producing, realistic ones, ones that bring development to the characters, ones that are funny.



    Lets face it, the last 2 seasons have been a train wreck for The Office, but with this one episode, I can tell that things might be looking up, at least we know that The Office is capable of delivering a good episode, it's not that they can't anymore. Lets just hope they stick with this routine. Jim is now co-manager, definite development. Like someone else said on here, Dwight & Toby definitely need to have more scenes together, their plot was hilarious, and Pam's wasn't that bad either. Great episode of The Office, don't miss this installment.moreless

    This was one of the best episodes of The Office since it's been on air in my opinion. The awkward opening sequence between Michael and Oscar only gets bested by the one where Jim impersonates Dwight. Although it's not about hilarity and off color humor in this episode. I really enjoyed watching this episodes plot and sub plot develop. The scenes with Dwight and Toby with Daryl with the investigation of Daryls "injury" was great. It was good to see both of them interact together in spite of their past differences. There were some clever quips from Dwight in this episode which kept The Office true to it's original style. I hope it keeps going like this.moreless
  • A good episode? WHHHHAAATTT?

    7.0
    Dare I say this was a good episode of The Office? Yes, by the standards we have been accustomed to over the past few seasons, yes, it was. And do you know why? Because that actually had realistic storylines. They had realistic storylines that could actually happen in the workplace and things work-related instead of ridiculous dance parties and other nonsense that Michael Scott usually does. But Carell was actually funny here, I have to admit that, and the Toby and Dwight scenes were great. They definitely need to pair those two together more in the future.



    Hopefully next week's is as good. I doubt it though.moreless
  • When the Office sticks to office plots, the balance between ridiculous and realistic is tolerable.

    9.2
    I have a massive bias towards The Office, I'll be the first to admit it. But even I can recognize that the writers sometimes delve too far into the insane, which is a no-no when you're supposed to be making a show filmed like a documentary that takes place in an office. However, so far, the first two episodes have done a decent job of returning to more office orientated antics. And it's done wonders so far.



    First off, the pairing of Toby and Dwight was hilarious. And seeing Toby yell at Darryl and his "sister" (Dwight addressing the camera and saying "Am I the only one who sees this?" was perfect) was great. It gave him something else to do but sit in the annex with Kelly or be hated on by Michael.



    The plot revolved entirely around a meeting between Jim and David Wallace, and MIchael attempting to figure out what was going on. Something as simple as that made the episode effective. There wasn't a whole lot going on and it gave everyone a chance to get in on the humor.



    The cold open was alright, nothing special. Sometimes, it seems like they run out of ideas for them so they're forced to come up with something random.. although it was funny to see how it unfolded.



    So far, the Office is doing a good job. Let's hope it can keep the quality up.moreless
