The Office – Season 4, Episode 4 – Money

October 19, 2007

Let me first say this: Toby’s so cool – writing and directing this week’s episode. Well, it’s the final 1 hour episode of The Office and unfortunately I’m going to have to call the experiment a failure. As I said last week – the show just doesn’t work in hour increments. Again, 40 minutes would have been the optimal length for this episode. The whole Pam and Jim going to Dwight’s bed and breakfast had some funny moments but as with the pizza boy story last week, it could have been completely pulled out and the episode would have been much tighter.

Still, here’s what I learned from this week’s The Office:

The Office – Season 4, Episode 3 – Launch Party

October 13, 2007

Sorry that I’m late with my look at this week’s Office but as I learned from the opening minutes of the show, watching the DVD box try to go into the corner (something I admit I’ve found myself mesmerized with on my own DVD player), good things can come if you wait for it.

Here’s what I learned from this week’s The Office:

  • I will never doubt Pam again. If she says she saw something, I’m going to believe her.
  • I should start printing my presentations on colour paper instead of white so they won’t be so bland.
  • The brainchild of my brainchild is my grandbrainchild. Cool.
  • From now on I’m only going to attend parties with sushi and important people.
  • If I ever need a good business cliche to be used in a presentation I will rewatch Ryan’s speech – (“apples to apples”, “flying at 30000 feet”, “don’t want to get into a beauty contest”, “convergence”, “going guerrilla”, “don’t want to reinvent the wheel”, “it is what it is”) – Awesome!!!

The Office – Season 4, Episode 2 – Dunder Mifflin Infinity

October 5, 2007

Pam still looks great, Ryan still started the fire and this show continues to be the anchor of my Thursday night viewing. The show starts with Toby exposing Pam and Jim (not quite the way he intended).  Toby was great this week and how much did you hate Ryan – even more than before (but in a good way).

If you didn’t see, our favourite Dunder Mifflin couples were on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly.  3 covers in all.

Without further ado, here’s what I learned from this week’s The Office:

The Office – Season 4, Episode 1 – Fun Run

September 28, 2007

How great is it to finally sit down and watch a new episode of my favourite show. I’ll tell you how great by doing what I always do when I review The Office, share what I learned. So without further ado….

Here’s what I learned from this week’s The Office:

  • If I buy milk for my wife, I might get credit for making breakfast.
  • Don’t click on Internet offers for celebrity sex tapes.
  • Beware office detectives who like to ask “Are you kidding me” or repeat what you say in the form of a question.
  • The duties of the Chairman of the Party Planning Committee are extensive and far reaching so don’t volunteer if you aren’t prepared to make sacrifices. Read the rest of this entry »
