    Thanks to it's still excellent cast and just the right amount of changes to the formula, the show manages to stay both entertaining and funny in it's 6th season. It hit some lulls every now and then, but the fact that even after six seasons that the show still manages to maintain such a high level of quality is incredibly impressive and something few other sitcoms have managed to attain.Thanks to it's still excellent cast and just the right amount of changes to the formula, the show manages to stay both entertaining and funny in it's 6th season.

    'The Office' shines as usual. It have lost some of its magical & hilarious moments, but its vast focus on characteristic diversity continues to impress. Its plot can be a bit uneven, and it’s not always that funny nor embarrassing as it once was. But it’s still one of the must see comedies out there!

    Average episode rating: 72/100 (- 2,46 since S05). Personal rating: 78/100 Critical

    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.

    As much as I love this show, this season was on par with season 1. It wasn't greatly comedic, but there was plot. I really hope the office can pick it up next season, but this one was somewhat disappointing. But how are you supposed to compete with a season so well done such as last years?

    What makes the Office so funny is its wide array of characters and fantastic cast, although the quality of the show has definitely gone down some, it still remains one of the best comedies on t.v.

    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.

    Simply one of the best American sitcoms ever created, The Office never fails to entertain. The episode "The Whistleblower" is perhaps the single best one of the entire season. Highly recommended.

    Whole spectrum of different characters very well combined. I like seeing there reactions on all kind of ridicules situations they create (mostly Michael).

    As with previous seasons its ranges from average to very good. Michael and Andy, as usual, standout with Dwight consistent as ever. Its just a shame some of the plots aren't explored for longer - such as Michael's relationship with Pam's mother, Michael working in Sales etc. More quality rather than quanity of storylines would have made the series even better.

    All 6 seasons The Office is great ! Always funny, sometimes sad, but then funny again ! Maybe the 6th season isn't good as previous , but we hope that season 7 will be the BEST

    Anthony- I don't think it's about intelligence, more about having the experience to be able to relate to the things going on. If you've never been in the situations that the characters on Seinfeld were in, you're not going to find it funny. I don't think The Office is like Seinfeld in that sense. It's more low-brow, straightfoward comedy. When compared to the Anthony- I don't think it's about intelligence, more about having the experience to be able to relate to the things going on.

    Wow, there's no accounting for taste with some of these commenters. Anybody who gave this a lower score should revise it after the wedding episode. An all time classic.

    The Office is falling into that trap that "The Simpsons" fell in to years ago (how many years ago is a subject for debate between more ardent Simpsons fans than I). It's still a funny show and is one of the best shows on television. However, it doesn't hold up to its own high standards that it set in Seasons 2 and 3.

    This show has changed rapidly in tone then previous seasons but it still remains funnier than most shows on television. Most people's expectations for the show are simply too high to let them recognize the greatness this show still can achieve

    The Office is hands down the funniest show on TV and one of the few shows that isn't written for people with an IQ of 85...which sadly is who most sitcoms are aimed at.

    I believe that Anthony M is mentally insane. Seinfeld was a great show, as well as The Office. By the way, enjoying Seinfeld or The Office has nothing to do with how smart you are, just whether or not you have a sense of humor.

    After failing to win the Emmy award for best comedy series two years in a row. 30 Rock is always there to win. But not this time, usually The Office is an off and on sitcom, but this season, there is something to laugh about in every episode. This season is looking to beat 30 rock for best comedy.

    While the workplace formulas & cast dynamics seem a bit tired at times, this is still the funniest show on network TV (I'm partial to the Larry David school of obnoxious comedy). Even as a longtime fan, I'm often struck dumb during the awkward moments in new episodes -- they really play best on second viewing.

    The Office is filled with crazy moments that either make you laugh out loud... or cringe in fear. Steve Carell takes his role seriously as Michael Scott, except that sometimes he might take it too far. The ensemble is great. Overall, this show show exploits the daliy woes of work and make them very humorous

    This entire season has been absolutely top notch, the opening episode included. The 4th episode (hour long) was one of the funniest episodes ever. In regards to Anthony M claiming that he's smart enough to enjoy it... unless you have your Masters in a 'sense of humour', you really have no valid complaint.

    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.

    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.
