Whenever the combination of tension, and Michael Scott are present, there is almost always a disaster waiting to happen. At the beginning of Double Date, it looked as if it was going to be one of those rare times where Michael was going to prove everybody else wrong.
After watching Michael's blind man act, Pam admitted that "It's good to be home." But this was before Michael unleashed the terrifying news, first to Jim, and then to Pam. This episode shows Jim and Pam at their angriest.
With the absence of Jim and Pam, and Ryan having turned into a massive jerk, Oscar becomes the sane one at the Scranton branch. Oscar is well aware of this, and he is reluctant to get involved in any of the office drama.
The series' main storyline reaches its conclusion, in the episode where Pam and Jim finally get married. This episode had a very romantic comedy feel to it, that included everything that could possibly go wrong, and more: a torn scrotum, self-centered family members, one-night stands, a torn veil, and a pregnancy.
As a regional manager, Michael has learned that it is important, but difficult to keep his staff happy. Jim on the other hand, would rather take an approach that he views as different and better. In his inclination to believe in the superiority of his ideas, Jim managed to completely upset the employees, and to create more unproductivity.
When there are well developed characters, and a simple plotline, the joke writes itself. Such is the case in the opening of this week's episode of The Office, as Michael called Oscar into his office for a meeting. Regular viewers can already tell that Michael is going to offend Oscar's sexuality, by just watching the two men together.
The 6th season premiere of The Office starts off by showing just how delusional Michael Scott is. He's running around the workplace with his two lackeys (Dwight and Andy), attempting what he believes is parkour. Instead of believing that parkour is about finding the most efficient way of traversing environment, Michael interprets it as being creative (and stupid) with obstacles.
This week: Season finale! At least one big surprise! Company picnic! Dwight acting almost human at times!
In the opener, we find that Michael has eaten an entire family-sized chicken pot pie for lunch, which has sent him into a deep nap.
This week's opener is so, so stupid and yet so, so awesome: Erin the New Receptionist suddenly screams with joy at her desk and hollers, "OMG, I won an art contest!" Dwight starts chuckling maniacally and walks over to hand her some cash while Jim and Pam share weary looks. In an interview, Dwight laughs much more maniacally, and gleefully (and slightly demonically...
Well, I don't really know what's going on in the opener here, because apparently the show started earlier than usual. YOU COULD TELL MY PVR THAT, GLOBAL TV. Honestly.
At any rate, Kevin appears to have spilled a large vat of chili all over the floor of the office and is now trying to scoop it up using his bare hands and scraps of paper.
