May 1st, 2009 3:29pm EDT
The Office
On The Office, Kevin says he likes to bring in his famous chili at least once a year to share with everyone in the office. He carries a huge stock pot using pot holders that cause his grip to constantly slip. The elevator is out-of-order so he is forced to take the stairs. After hauling the massive load up the stairs he finally makes it into the office only to drop the whole pot of chili on the floor. This after he explained in voice-over how his recipe has been passed down over generations and that he individually roasts the ancho peppers and hand presses the garlic. As he gets down on his...

This week's episode of The Office begins in Michael's new office at his newly formed paper company, The Michael Scott Paper Company. As Pam points out, "Things are pretty slow around here and there's only so much cold calling you can do." So Pam, Michael and Ryan have become experts at throwing cheese balls into each other's mouths. A series of shots show them throwing, and landing, shots from all over the tiny office.

This week on The Office Charles put Kevin in charge of reception until he could hire a replacement. Kevin is not the best choice for the job. Calls come in and since Kevin doesn't know how to transfer them he just covers the receiver and yells at the person who needs to come over to the reception desk and answer the phone. As Jim puts it, "Kevin is doing exactly as well as anyone might have expected someone like him to perform in a position like that." The phone rings again. Kevin yells at Andy that the phone is for him. Jim reminds Kevin that they went over how to transfer a call. Kevin sa...

On The Office, Michael has everyone's attention in the break room while he tries to relay the story of how he quit. He's dragging out the details and taking forever even to get to the part where he's in front of David Wallace. Pam says to camera, "He finally has a story we want to hear, and he knows it." Michael tells his attentive audience that he looked David in the face and he said, "I quit," then he said, "You have no idea how high I can fly." Everyone chimes in with all the horrible things they would have said. Michael says, "You guys have thought about this a lot more than I have. I j...

Dwight suggests for Michael's 15th Anniversary celebration they should begin with 15 minutes of clapping followed by 15 minutes of silence. Jim, dressed in a tux, feels like that isn't classy enough and they should throw a classy night to remember instead. Michael agrees saying his night should have, "all the drama, excitement and intrigue of my time here." Dwight is frustrated that Michael is only agreeing with Jim because he is wearing a tuxedo. Jim explains to camera that Dwight sent out a memo about professional dress in the workplace and singled Jim out so Jim's response was to wear a ...

The Office
This week a guy from Techstar comes in to try and sell Michael on a new phone system. Pam fears for her job safety and deters the gentleman from connecting with Michael. She's been stalling him and telling him Michael is not in the office every time he comes in for a meeting. Apparently the new phone system can direct calls straight to sales people and accounting, which accounts for the majority of her job description. The salesman asks to schedule an appointment with Michael. Pam gets his date book out which is emptier than a desert and looks for an available time slot. Suddenly Jim busts ...

A strange heavy breathing can be heard all over The Office. Then the sound of someone laughing but trying not to laugh is heard.ains, "This morning the phone guy comes in and he shows Michael that our phones have a PA function and then he just left." Michael makes announcements such as, "This is your captain speaking, the office will be flying at an altitude of two stories. If you look out your left window you'll see Vance refrigeration." Which Creed actually does and looks confused while doing it. This goes on far too long and includes a conversation to Michael's doctor about a suspicious ...

'The Office' Goes Undercover

January 23rd, 2009 12:42pm EST
The Office
Let's here it for the non-sequitur, a statement that does not follow what preceded it. And let's here it for the only show on television who knows how to use one to full comic advantage: "The Office." Last week Michael told Andy about the affair between Dwight and Angela now this week it's as if nothing ever happened.

Understandably no one would want to directly address painful things and it seems as if loose ends were tied up as both men simultaneously dumped Angela. Yet bringing up awkward and inappropriate things is a hallmark of this show.

Speaking of non-sequiturs, Dwight no...

Dwight arrives at the office to find his chair, his desk and everything that was on his desk covered in gift-wrap. He suspects that it took Jim all night to pull of this joke but Jim corrects him. "It took five minutes. I have a black belt in wrapping." To which Dwight replies, "They don't give out black belts for stupid things." Then he surmises that if he can skin a moosedeer (whatever that is) in under ten minutes then he can unwrap his desk in less time. He throws his briefcase on top of his desk and goes to sit in his chair and it's all made of boxes. The totally fake set up implodes a...

Angela mocks him, "Did it even touch your tongue." Dwight enters the conference room eating jerky. He turns down the brownie offer saying, "Fat and sugar, no thank you. I'll stick to my jerky." Jim asks him why he came into the room if he didn't want a brownie. He says, "To socialize and inform." Then Ryan asks Kelly if she's taking two brownies. She says yes but one is for Toby.

This week on The Office, Michael holds a meeting in the conference room about international customs because he is being sent to exotic Canada to close a sale for Dunder Mifflin. As Michael points out, "In Italy you must always wash your hands after using the bathroom. This is considered polite." Thank goodness we don't live in a country where most people are rude. Wait.

Michael asks Meredith to act like she is from Abu Dhabi. She gets hello out before Michael tells her that her naked face offends him and covers her head with his coat. Nice.

For anyone disappointed with last week's episode of The Office, this week offered a more familiar pace and was jam packed with funny, quirky content that moved the plot forward.

Instead of coming clean and telling everyone that he and Holly broke up, Michael decides lying and saying they're engaged is a better idea. The staff gets really excited. Except for Darryl. He says to camera that he's not a big believer in therapy, but he would personally pay for Michael's co-pay in order for him to see a shrink. Andy suggests a double wedding with him and Angela. Michael says they wouldn't do...

Michael and Holly have gone on a few dates. They walk into the office chatting about their last one. Michael says he wants to get a set of his own putt-putt golf clubs. He asks when he can see Holly again....

The Most Underrated And Overrated Things About The 2007-08 TV Season

The Emmy ballots are in, which means the 2007-08 TV season is officially over. Actually, the TV season officially lasted from June 1st until May 31st, but it doesn't really seem over until now. Now that we've had a few weeks to reflect, we can begin to formulate our opinions, or leave that up to the professionals, about the best and worst of the season gone by.

But that's easy. What about the far more enticing category of the most overrated and underrated? But we shouldn't limit ourselves to TV shows. Things like news stories, performances, and accepted perceptions are all ripe for...
