The Office: The Delivery

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  March 8, 2010 @ 9:20pm

Much of the appeal of The Office is a result of combining diverse characters in an office environment, with plots that are driven by workplace related themes and the interactions that ensue. The Delivery, is unlike most episodes of The Office. Instead, it relies on slapstick, and the characters acting very much over the top.

The Office: Manager and Salesman

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  February 14, 2010 @ 6:13pm

Manager and Salesman has got to be the most disappointing episode of The Office in a very long time. There was minimal characterization, a predictable plot, and a love story that's going nowhere. And where there is characterization, there is nothing memorable.

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  December 12, 2009 @ 1:05am

For the first time, Jim was able to look like the saner of the two co-managers. It didn't take much on Jim's part, as he was only being himself.

There was something awfully strange about Michael getting greeted at the hotel.

As Michael and the upper echelon were going on the stage, they too were also mysteriously escorted by security.

The Office: Double Date

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  November 6, 2009 @ 6:39pm

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.

The Office: Koi Pond

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  October 30, 2009 @ 9:19pm

Halloween episodes are fun to watch. The costumes are always interesting, whether it be Jim's minimalism, or Creed's incredible uncanniness. But with The Office tradition, something tragic always happens at that time of the year.
