But I'm really scared that Michael Scott has DEFINITELY been inflicted with "Homer Simpson's Disease" ( aka 'too-stupid-to-even-be-believeable'). and The Parkour bit ran a bit too long.


Not a bad start though. I'm looking forward to this season.


I'm wondering what big subplot will make up the bulk of the season.

also the rest of the cast never fails to disappoint...though that Parkour thing was too long the second it started.

I thought the Parkour thing still worked even if it was a little bit physical and cartoony for what The Office typically does (kind of like that crazy ass fire drill or whatever it was from last season)

But used sparingly, those kind of moments have a lot of impact because they aren't what you expect from this show

last season sucked. no questions asked. I think they realized it was starting to suck in season 4 and really sucked in 5 and based on this first ep I'm gonna say they picked up the slack, but we're not out of the woods yet.

My favorite moment had to be all the questions and comments after they announced the pregnancy.

"Vaccinate it now"

"Who's your OBGYN?"

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

The new characters and subplots last year were inspired. I do like the "Andy Bernard ponders his sexuality" subplot in theory-- let's see what they do with it (he definitely does need to be featured more, being one of the funniest parts of the show). His first confessional was the highlight of the episode for me.

We needed more Dwight this ep, after he was the all-star last season. Still, it was fun to see Steve Carell get to do more of the old "I want to be included" shtick that he does so well. The poopball speech made me howl.

I like the Jim/Pam couple repor. When he makes a joke and she gives him the stink eye, that feels real to me and is way funnier than when they're both making jokes together. Give them some real couple back-and-forth dialogue, and the Jim/Pam moments would be waaaay better. Right now, they're too uneven.

Only downside? You KNOW Stanley wouldn't have said all that shit to Michael, lol. Cmon.

But I'm nitpicking. Solid start.

Agreed. I'd definitely like to see Andy get more screen time this year. I think he's the funniest character on the show, although Dwight can still be great as well. I also hope they keep pairing up Kelly and the new receptionist. They're sort of funny together, but really I just find both attractive so why not have them in scenes together frequently? If they wanted to have them dance like last year, that'd be cool too. But yeah, more Andy too.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

not a whole lot of funny in this ep.

Andy needs more screen time for sure.
The Oscar intro might have been funny if it weren't a variation on the same 'Michael is ignorant about homosexuality' joke that we've seen over and over again.

This whole episode felt to me like a time out from the comedy to push ahead a strange plotline--Jim becoming comanager. This reminds me of the Jim-Pam soap opera days.

this was, without a doubt, the most terrible fucking episode in the history of the show.

there was nothing funny about Michael's plotline. the writers crafted a scenario that replaced the show's awkward humor with flat out cruelty.

and the WORST part was, the whole set up was just a predictable way for him to appreciate Erin. that was the fucking payoff.

The show is dying before our very eyes.

I guess the concept was interesting...in theory...but as it played out?...awkward...mildly offensive...peculiar...

whatever it was, funny wasn't in there...

The tots' "What ya gonna do?" tribute to Michael was "meh."

This show used to make me laugh...consistently...several times in an episode...now I'm asking myself why I'm still watching this...I know the writers/actors can tell it's coming to an end...

However, not all bad...Michael/Erin ish was corny...but Dwight's plan had some funny moments.

It's time to put Scranton to rest, though...it's clear.

With that being said(Larry David), I'll be back next week.

Everything gets blown out of proportion ... it's not the best season but it's not awful either. Most of the time it entertains me for 30 minutes and that's all I want and need out of any show.

as long as the show was funny. now it's not even funny anymore. and michael scott has turned from being someone that generally makes me cringe to someone that generally makes me angry.

since jokes, i guess, are not longer something that this show is interested in, at this point, all i want is to see michael get run over by a dump truck.

michael telling a bunch of third graders that he will pay for their college is COMPLETELY in character

when he talked about thinking he would be a millionaire by then? you know that was the truth

and since when does michael think shit out before he talks...he's always saying ridiculous stuff...and he did backhandedly help those kids out with graduating, plus now they know not to count on white people in suits

was that a hilarious storyline...no...was it funny when he brought up laptops, then gave them batteries?...yes

dwight manipulating everyone in the office perfectly, yet having his plan fail? and leaving his plan in the copier like he leaves his ninja weapons everywhere?...funny...maybe not hilarious, but funny

summation...the show has not been as funny since folks left to do parks and rec...but it's still solid, and it's not like they've lost the characters...they just need a good ensemble episode to bring everyone back in

In response to Reply # 41


  

          

Everything you mentioned was funny...in theory.

Something about the execution was lacking, though...maybe I am just getting "tired" of the show, but it used to be funny from beginning to end...now?...this whole bit about Scott's Tots was the focal point of the show and only a few seconds of it were actually funny...the batteries.

The show is not done...by any means. But it is clear that it is coming to an end, if not literally, then in terms of quality.

This show did not rise to greatness b/c you could sit through it, grin once or twice and say afterwards, "That was a funny idea...and it is totally in keeping w/(fill in the blank here)'s character."

You laughed out loud several times...quoted it...laughed again when you and your friends talked about it...but now?...not so much, if at all.

That being said, I'm not giving up on it.

could have been funny, but not in that context. the completely unfunny set up was not worth the minor chuckle from the battery thing.


>>dwight manipulating everyone in the office perfectly, yet
>having his plan fail? and leaving his plan in the copier like
>he leaves his ninja weapons everywhere?...funny...maybe not
>hilarious, but funny

completely unfunny.


they should go back to writing funny jokes and situations and forget about trying to create drama. anyone who looks to the office for drama is probably a moron. no need to water it down to the lowest common denominator for those people, especially when the end product is plain bad.

But all the negativity in here is justified. If anything it's too muted. The show has unfortunately fallen off, hard. I can't even put my finger on it but the recent episodes I've been watching and actively trying to enjoy it, but it just hasn't been very funny. It's really just boring now. Even the drama, which I never really enjoyed, has gotten worse. The sexual tension between jim and Pam, based off the UK Office, was actually well done. Now its just shitty arguments and falling outs.

Please call it a day, I'll still remember it as an A+ show if we stop now.

Bitter Santa Michael was hilarious

Kevin sitting on his lap was hilarious

Bob showing up at the end looking to kick ass was hilarious

And Andy gettin' it in with Erin, I ain't mad at all

Mindy came up with another good one...

heavy on the jokes...gave everyone a little shine...

Michael was misguided, but not beyond redemption as he usually has been this season.

Hopefully this will signal a return to form.
