“The Michael Scott Paper Company” Review

Again, like the episode that also aired last night, I thought this too was a strong piece of work from the writers.  I think that’s who my main beef has been lately.  I never had any problems with the actors, it was the writers who weren’t giving as good of material as they had in the past.  But I thought this episode got back into the awkward humor that I was missing with this show.

Yes, Michael has been making me cringe plently lately, but it has been a while since I found him truly humorous and a character I can relate to. 

And, let’s face it, any episode with Andy and Dwight belting out a duo with their respective banjo and guitar is pretty awesome.

“Dream Team” Review

For the first time in a long time, I felt like my good old Office was back last night.  I adored the cold open,  but I usually feel that way about any scene where Kevin is used in such a way.  I loved Jim trying to play Dad of the office and trying to get his boy to remember what his was told.  To have all the people celebrating in the background while Andy announced that his maid had died was just vintage stuff.

I loved the parallels between Pam and Michael.  I enjoyed the insight into Michael’s character about how he thrives on people telling him he’s going to fail.  It explains a lot about who Micahel Scott is.  The meeting with “the investors” was great, and I have to admit that my favorite part was when Ryan was winking and flirting with the elderly ladies.

All in all, a really good episode.  Let’s hope this trend continues.
