    This season seams weird only because it introduces some plot. But it still is the same great show, just going new places. But it still is The Office. And that means it is awesome.

    You can't beat this show. The Office is awesome. One of the greatest shows ever. It is always so hilarious. The cast is amazing and have such good chemistry. Steve Carell is crazy funny and makes a perfect Michael Scott. I wouldn't change a thing. As the show goes on so does the storyline so things are bound to change. Still amazing.

    Season 6 represents an entirely new tonal direction for the show, and it's one that relies heavily on nihilism. One could say that wrecks the appeal of the show, but I disagree entirely. These characters are so lovable, so why not let the situations lighten up a bit? This and season 3 are tied for the funniest seasons.

    The solidly entertaining season premiere of The Office is of a piece with last season's better episodes.

    Michael is a clinically interesting personality type who is profoundly unempathetic, until such times as he is very empathetic. The wonderful creative trick of The Office is knowing exactly the right moment to humanize Michael.
  3. It's a typically funny Office episode that makes good use of most of the cast.
