  • A good story centering on the three accountants.

    9.8
    The Webisodes featuring the three accountants of Dunder Mifflin Scranton - Kevin, Angela, and Oscar - were quite well-written, and a good idea to keep fans entertained through the long summer hiatus. It was fun to see two of my favorite minor characters (Kevin and Angela) get episodes centering on them. The plot was actually quite clever, and seeing the accountants interview other employees was quite entertaining. I also enjoyed discovering that Angela has a bit of a crush on Roy, Pam's ex-fiancée. The conflict had a good ending, featuring Angela as the source of the problem, and some memorable quotes. Overall, watching the webisodes on the season two DVD was a fun way to spend 20-some minutes, about the length of an episode. The webisodes were also a welcome addition to the fantastic season two DVD. I heartily recommend watching them.moreless
  • interesting to see the other characters

    9.0
    I watched these on my DVDs. It really is interesting to see how the other characters really are... they only have side parts in the real show, so they really shine when the main characters aren't there. Its a good quick little episode. Interesting really. I wish each was a bit longer, but they are just short webisodes, so I guess I will forgive them
  • It was actually funny.

    10
    Yeah, it's true. I enjoyed the webisodes; I think they were kind of brilliant, hehe. But, most importantly, they made me laugh, which is the best part.



    I could find a lot of funny quotes on it..

    And the situation gets pretty serious, but really cool, and completely appropiate for everyone.



    Kevin gets a lot of camera moments; he's actually the best part here, and has the funniest lines. And if you think he's dumb, he said he got over 100 on an IQ test when he was a child, hahaha. How clever that was.



    If you have a doubt on watching these episodes...

    I understand. I still recommend them, though. Not only because it's complete different situation, without Michael, Pam or Jim... Because you get to know a little bit more, those who have a few lines on the series.



    Well, the only problem about these... are the commercials that appear before, when watching them on the NBC website. But, still... Go watch 'em while they're hot..



    Okay... warm. heh.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Outside of the Accountants-Brian Baumgartner (Kevin), Oscar Nunez (Oscar) and Angela Kinsey (Angela), other main characters that appear in the webseries are, Melora Hardin (Jan), Phyllis Smith (Phyllis), Kate Flannery (Meredith), Leslie David Baker (Stanley), David Denman (Roy) and Rainn Wilson (Dwight).

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Angela: (accusing Meredith of stealing the $3,000) Oh, we know you did... or someone else did.

    • Angela: Did you talk to Kelly?
      Oscar: Yes. She said she didn't do it, then 45 minutes later the conversation ended.

    • Kevin: I didn't steal $3,000 from petty cash. I am not stupid. If I wanted to steal from this company, there are a lot of easier ways to do it. For example, I could steal people's coats and sell them on eBay.

    • Kevin: Angela thinks it's an insult when she calls me a genius, all sarcastic and whatnot, but technically, guess what? I am a genius. When I was a kid, I took an IQ test and I scored over 100. So, joke is on you, Angela.

    • Meredith: Yes. I'm a single mom. I would never do anything to jeopardize my kid.
      Oscar: I thought you had two kids.
      Meredith: My ex-husband took Wendy, the good one.

    • Meredith: Please. If I stole $3,000, I wouldn't be here. I'd be on a beach in Jamaica drinking Red Stripe.
      Kevin: Oh, I love Red Stripe.
      Oscar: I do, too. That's Jamaican beer?
      Meredith: Yeah. We should go out and get a beer after work. Or, hey, you want to go right now?
      Oscar: It's 11:15.
      Meredith: Yeah. So, that's too early?

    • (after learning of the problem)
      Kevin: This is the first I've heard of it. They never tell me anything. I like it that way.

    • Kevin: (to camera) We're in the process of interviewing everyone in the office. I think it's kinda fun. It's a great chance to catch up with people.

    • Angela: We'd appreciate your cooperation if you find out who did it.
      Stanley: I'll tell you what. If I find out who did it, I will shake their hand, pat them on the back, give them 72 hours to get out of the country, and then I'll let you know who it is. Is there anything else?

    • Phyllis: My boyfriend Bob Vance, from Vance Refrigeration, gave me a Vance Refrigeration credit card. Only for emergencies...
      Kevin: An emergency like... you have an ice cream cake, and you're in the sun, and it's melting...
      Angela: You don't use it to buy refrigerators, Kevin.
