EPIC opening to this one that has a song and dance number and all of it caught in one-take. You have to nail it and if one thing is off, ya gotta do it all over again. Very cool number too. The song they went with was Nobody but Me by The Human Beinz. The idea for the cold opening came courtesy of Students at Université du Québec à Montréal lip syncing in one-take to the Black Eyed Peas I Gotta Feeling (http://youtu.be/-zcOFN_VBVo)

As for the rest of the episode, the plot involving Michael and his nephew Luke was pretty good and now I can finally lay to rest where I had seen Evan Peters before. When I started watching American Horror Story (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/tv/american-horror-story/msg4414/#msg4414) I kept trying to place his face in where and what I had seen him in recently. Now I know.

The prank by Pam against Dwight was pretty good, even if it didn't have the exact outcome she was hoping for. Erin and Gabe as a couple still weird's me out. Erin really does have low standards. First Andy, now Gabe.

Watching Michael create made up stories just to spite Toby who is working as his office mandated counselor for spanking his nephew in the last episode was a hoot. The look that he gives Toby when he started talking about his daughter was priceless. I also liked that Pam took the imitative to steal a job title: Office Administrator so she could get a salary bump. Stick it to da man!!

Also funny was watching Jim transform Dwight into a "respectable" person all for the sole purpose of going back to the mall and doing the scene from Pretty Woman. Hahaha.

The episode started off with another Song and Dance opening. But what it really was, was a trial run for Andy and his fellow actors who are putting on a play for Sweeney Todd. The first third of the episode I wasn't a fan of. But somewhere along the way it become very funny, espicially with Michael making a lot of noise during the play after feeling slighted for not getting a part in the play himself.

Also of note, in this episode, after 6 seasons, they finally manage to make Angela look pretty damn desirable. Sure, she may have just changed into "farm clothes" to seduce Dwight, but it was the way she presented herself. She felt...alive or something and not the prudish character that she has always been. Very hot in this one. I can't wait for the episode where she dresses up as a nurse. Yowwza! (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_drool.gif)

The epilogue showing Michael's audition for Sweeney Todd consisting of him doing an entire episode of Law & Order was AWESOME!!

This episode was incredibly funny in so many ways. It all starts simply enough when Michael shows up to work with a fake mustache. Why? To hide the fact that he has a cold sore. But of course the others have to point out that he in fact has herpes and that they are one and the same. This sends him off on a course to contact all his ex-lovers to warn them about his disease. It's a who's who list of guest stars. He first calls Donna to warn her. Then he calls Holly, but she says something that really affects him in a negative way when she says he 'romanticized' their relationship.

So now Michael confronts Jan, Helene and Carole to ask them about if he ever romanticized their relationship as well. As you can guess, by the end of the day he is just emotionally wrecked. But when he leaves a message on Holly's answering machine about what was real and what was not, it's pretty damn powerful and it was great to see him take ownership of it.

Watching Andy try and teach a Sex Ed class with everyone was funny. But watching him lose it and slam the pizza into the wall was awesome and a reminder of when I thought Andy was fun to watch. He is better when he loses his temper for sure.

Only one thing could send this episode into an all time classic. Have Michael confront one last "ex-lover" of his: Oscar. HaHahahahaha. They make reference to when they both kissed in the classic episode Gay Witch Hunt (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/the-office-(season-3-2006)/msg9677/#msg9677) from Season 3.

It was very odd to see another big time Hollywood actor pop up on The Office, unlike the others that were playing themselves, Timothy Olyphant actually brought something to the role of Danny Cordray, a rival salesman for a competing paper company that keeps stealing clients from Dunder Mifflin. The whole arc of this episode was about trying to find out his secret to selling. And leave it up to Meredith to more or less steal the episode with her come-ons as a Boss of a fictional company. She sure has a lot of "cleaning" people that don't speak English. Hahahahaha.

I also found humor in Andy putting a band together with Darryl and Kevin. Even their Frog song was pretty clever with the lyrics.

I remember now why I've hated Gabe. It was this episode when it aired on TV that he just looked absolutely ridiculous as Lady Gaga and factor in the fact that he is nothing more than a scared company tool that doesn't want anyone going over his head to Jo and you have a recipe for a spineless coward. The rest of the episode was pretty good. It was all about who wore what to the Halloween Costume Party and the winner in my eyes is easily Angela in her "Naughty" Nurse outfit. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_drool.gif)

Also, Pam and Jim keep pestering at Danny (Timothy Olyphant) to come clean why he never called her back when they were dating. I thought the cold opening with Stanley not paying attention to anything around him was awesome.

I didn't care for this episode the first time it aired on TV and I like it even less now. There was nothing remotely entertaining about watching this at all. Having the entire gang at church to watch CeCe's christening doesn't really offer much in the way of laugh out moments. Jim losing CeCe wasn't funny. Having Michael and Andy hopping onto a bus that's heading down to Mexico to build a school had zero laughs. The ending seems to just....end. They couldn't even come up with a legit ending that was satisfying. Not that if they came up with something would it have saved this episode. Nothing could.

About the only funny thing here was of course the cold opening where everyone was sneezing on Dwight or onto his food.

I think I respond really well to this episode because we see how much Michael hates Gabe, which is something I have always felt myself toward the character. So, to see the frustration on Michael's face at the stupidity that is Gabe throughout the episode is relatable. The kicker for the episode comes at the end when Erin doesn't understand why he doesn't like him and we discover that she actually looks up to Michael as a father figure. Up till now we just assume it's just a professional type of admiration she feels toward him. Loved it when Michael later tells Gabe that if he breaks her heart, he will literally kill him and his family. Haha. You go Michael!!

It's no secret that I can't stand Gabe and his stupid looking face. So it was pretty funny the way that Jim ends up pranking him by using audio of Jo and then splicing them together to create an insult to him and then suckering him into listening to her talk, via audio book of her autobiography by way of the phone. Well played, Jim. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/Applause.gif)

The other 2 story points regarding Dwight's Hay Place and WUPHF.com were just okay for me. Watching Ryan trying to con his coworkers is just pathetic. Even when Pam confronts Michael and tells him to his face that Ryan is taking advantage of him, it's amazing that he wouid still have a job at Dunder Mifflin.

The story involving Michael and Oscar and their "debate" of and about China was pretty funny, especially at the end when Michael changes the topic to 'Freedom of choice', which made no sense whatsoever, which made it all the more funnier. The story involving Pam and Dwight over the changing conditions of the Office was good, especially at the end when it's revealed that Dwight lets Pam win by giving her the information she would need to threaten him. You have to watch it to understand it.

The cold opening was  f u c k i n g  hilarious!! I bust a gut laughing at the sight of Dwight trying to drink a cip of coffee with his feet.

Holly's back!! I can't think of any other character on The Office that can add so much to an episode. She definitely changes the dynamic with regards to Michael and I think it's because of this we get some of the best writing on the show. Certainly one of the best written episode in the last 2 seasons of the series. With Holly back, it's set Michael back into romanticizing her and what they had and what they could have. When he blurts out in front of her and everyone else that he sees them having kids together in the future, it's one of the most painful scenes you will ever witness on the show because of how far removed he is from reality. Even if there is a remote chance they could wind up back together (they will), you just don't say stuff like that when the other person is in a relationship.

Love the snowball war Dwight unleashes on Jim throughout the entire 1 hour episode. It was brutal and I think the way they closed out the episode with Jim and Pam having to walk through a parking lot full of Snowmen was awesome. Haha. One of the best Christmas episodes for the series easily. It's so good that I'm gonna watch it again.

This episode is so frickin' hilarious that it deserves to be watched again, which I will do. I'm trying to recall if I have laughed out loud and as hard with any other episode during my Office marathon. Nope. Thank God for Kevin! He was a riot when Michael was force feeding him broccoli and shoving it down his gullet. Watching Creed's reaction to Erin for stealing his New Year's resolution was priceless. But I think the funniest bit was when Michael was celebrating with himself after learning that Holly didn't get engage by New Years Day. When he started spraying champagne on Erin, I just absolutely lost it. So many laughs. So good.

Creed's "cartwheel" at the end was just more icing on this already awesome cake.

With Steve Carell's departure from the show fast approaching, you can tell the last few episodes were up a notch. There could be nothing worst than have his characterr Michael Scott limping off into the sunset. What's cool is that pretty much everyone that has been getting screen time is getting to shine one way or another. Once again, the supporting characters like Kevin and Creed steal their scenes. Watching Kevin trying to motivate his audience with his speech about dreaming big had me on rolling on the floor....much like he was, but only vomiting. Creed's Loch Ness Monter speech was just as funny.

Even though Holly is mending her broken heart now that she is single, it was cool to see her and Michael role playing like before. Only thing could possibly top all of this and that would be a cameo from the one and only Ricky Gervais as David Brent. The wait was a long time coming, but it was well worth it. I just wish the scene was longer.

It was a long time coming, but Michael and Holly finally get back together. I thought the way they chose to have Holly realize they were meant to be together was pretty good. With Michael being "ditched" by Jim at a gas station to go rescuse Cece who was locked in a car, it's up to Michael to find his way back to Dunder Mifflin. Problem is, he has no money, no phone and no idea where he is. Dwight, Erin and Holly head out to look for him. But it's Holly and her ability to think like Michael that gets them on the right track to his location. When she eventually finds him on the rooftop of a building, she just....knew. So when they kiss, signifying they are back together, it was awesome.

Loved the 'Caption Game' that Pam sets up for the Office and loved what they came up with to insult Gabe. God, I can't stand that idiot. Here's what my caption would have read based on the picture provided by Pam (Picture is 2 tall Dogs standing on a small Island with 2 Palm trees). Here's my caption. I would hold the picture up and tell Gabe to look at it. While he is staring at it, that's when I punch him. It's so good it doesn't need a caption to get the point across.

This episode was awesome. I love the fact that both Holly and Michael were oblivious to their PDA in the office and that they were making the other people there totally uncomfortable. But it was also how they were displaying their affection for one another that made this an instant classic. So many great sight gags in this one. The way they were "holding hands" in Michael's office while talking to Oscar had me rolling on the floor. The way that Michael was sitting on Holly's lap during the conference meeting about office romances, also hilarious.

I really don't understand what Erin sees in Gabe. Seriously, the dude is anal and I can't imagine any real life scenario where he would be able to bag a hottie like Erin, let alone a wallflower with low self esteem. Just the fact that Erin had to jump through hoops in finding clues for her Valentine's Day present was definitely and eye opener. That and the fact that she was having more fun hanging out with Andy who was helping her find said clues.  Even though Andy annoys me at times, I prefer that Erin and Andy as a couple instead of that idiot Gabe. Also of note, Jim and Pam spend most of the episode trying to find a place to have sex in the office because they were singled out earlier as looking like a couple that you wouldn't even know were married to each other. This episode is so good that it deserves a repeat viewing again.

Love the last scene where Holly makes sound fx voices describing what she and Michael will be doing later that night on Valentine's Day. Hint: 'Squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak,'. Hahaha. Follow that up with Holly's laugh and you have a winner. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/HTL_biggrin.gif)

Threat Level Midnight is an instant classic. If you are a fan of The Office, than you are well aware that Michael Scott has a character that he created called Michael Scarn. Over the entire series Scarn gets mentioned from time to time and there was an even episode back in Season 2 where Pam finds an unfinished script in his desk and the whole office did a table reading of it, which was awesome in itself. The episode was title The Client. Thank God they gave us a filmed version of the story before Steve Carell left the show. It would have been incomplete without it. Trying to pinpoint my favorite scene here. Probably the Scarn Dance. Loved seeing Rashida Jones returning as Karen and delivering her line. All in all, a great episode. Gotta watch it again before moving forward with my Office marathon.

I am not a fan of Packer. Never have, never will be. Fortunately the character had very little screen time  throughout the entire run of the series. Hell, he's had even less screen time than Hank the Security Guard. But the time Packer did show up, he was such a negative in so many ways. When this episode first aired, I was happy they finally got rid of this idiot, this being his send-off episode. Unfortunately he would resurface in Season 8. Ugh.

Loved the prank that Jim pulled on Dwight with the desk drawer getting stuck. So awesome!

When first watching Garage Sale, you don't think much of it. It seems like it's gonna have it's share of laughs with Dwight swapping out each item for something better than the last, Jim convincing Dwight he needs to buy his magic beans or Andy, Darryl and Kevin playing the board game Dallas. But out of this simple episode, they crafted one of the finest scenes ever for the series and definitely one of the best proposals of any show that has ever been on the air. When Michael is walking Holly through the Office, telling her what each spot means and represents for him, it's not only great for them, but great for the fans watching because we get a series of callbacks that we can connect with.

But when Michael opens the door to the kitchen to reveal all the employees waiting for them, that's when the episode elevated itself from good to epic. The proposal itself was very memorable when all the candles set off the alarm, dumping water on everyone there which itself was another great callback to this very same episode when Michael was making fun of Jim for asking Pam to marry him when it was raining. But the moment was tempered when Michael announced to everyone that he was leaving Dunder Mifflin, which of course made Steve Carell leaving the show a reality that I and most eveyrone else was hoping would not come to fruition. The look on everyone's faces pretty much sums up every fan's feeling on the matter.

I feel that I'm gonna be watching the last of these episodes multiple times for a number of reasons. A) These are some of the best episodes after a long run of sub-par ones and B) Anything to prolong my Office marathon to keep it from ending and to keep Michael Scott around for a little while longer.

I really don't know if I like or hate Training Day. I do remember the episode rubbing me the wrong way when it originally aired. It wasn't that it was bad it was just that A) Here's is another Hollywood Superstar; Will Ferell making his way onto the Office and B) the reality that Steve Carell's time on the show was end and fast approaching.

This time around I could find a bit more humor now that I've had over a year to digest Carell's departure. Still not a perfect episode to introduce the character of Deangelo Vickers (Will Ferrell) into the series as the new acting manager of Dunder Mifflin. I think the biggest laugh for me was watching Andy basically turn into the office's dancing monkey to make his new boss laugh no matter. The fact that Andy looks ridiculous while doing it made it funnier than it probably was.

The Dundies is always good for some laughs. This one was good but still nowhere near that of the fist Dundies back in Season 2 which set the standards for the "awards" show. A couple of noteworthy scenes happen in this episode. The first is Erin FINALLY ends her relationship with Gabe and does so in grand fashion by announcing the breakup while on stage accepting her award for Cutest Red Head, which by the way sends Meredith into a fit of rage having just lost. Hahaha. The second is probably one of the greatest moments in the history of The Office. I always get choked up watching everyone singing their goodbye song to Michael. If you watch the scene play out, the emotion that comes across on Steve Carell's face is genuine which makes it all the more special that in a way, he broke character from the show.

I tried to delay watching this episode for as long as possible. How else to explain the fact that I watched each of the last 5-6 episodes twice. Goodbye Michael is a really sad episode for a lot of reasons. Obviously we are all sad that the character Michael Scott will no longer be on The Office, but it's also saying goodbye to Steve Carell. When it comes to send-offs, this is clearly one of the greatest episodes ever. Not just for The Office, but for any series. The way it was handled stayed true to what the show was always about...relationships. In a nutshell, Michael is giving up one family (Dunder Mifflin employees) for a new family (Holly). I thought it was brilliant to have everyone think he was leaving the next day, but in actuality was leaving a day earlier, this way the episode wouldn't be watered down with a lot of long tearful goodbyes which would have made the end result so un-Office-like. Doing it this way, it's just another day at the Office for all.

The only one that catches on to the fact that he is leaving early is Jim, which produces the scene of a lifetime. When tells Michael about him being the greatest Boss he has ever had, it was perfect. You can not get choked up watching the scene play out. I also thought it was perfect in how they played out Michael's final scene by having him remove his mic, leaving his scene with Pam in total silence. Because we have watched their relationship blossom over 7 seasons, we don't need to hear what they are saying because if you are a fan of the show and of the characters, you already know what's being said and the emotion that's behind it.

Along with his individual goodbyes, there were a couple of scenes that just rocked for all the right reasons. The first is when Michael starts having doubts about moving and calls Holly. When she answers in her 'character' voice and puts him at ease, he along with the rest of us know that this is the best decision he will ever make the rest of his life and that they belong together. The other cool scene was actually a callback scene from Season 1 when Michael does his best at being a basketball "player". He finally sinks the shot.....after countless ties.

Although the scenes with Deangelo (Will Ferrell) were funny, especially with Andy selling himself as the fall guy, you could see why Steve Carell leaving was just so much harder to stomach, knowing he wouldn't be around anymore after this. All in all, it's a brilliant episode. A+. And yes, I intend to watch this one again.

FYI, funniest scene ever was Michael's reaction to having just given Oscar the scarecrow. I laughed harder than he did. So damn funny it hurt. Priceless.

Don't let the high rating for this episode fool you into believing that The Office without Michael Scott is a good thing. The first time the episode aired, coming off the emotional high of Goodbye, Michael, it was just a huge letdown. There was an obvious hole left to fill and the episode just felt off. So, what about now? As in previous episodes, I have had a year of getting "use to no Michael Scott" and can be more objective in my assessment of this episode without being subjected to the sting of Steve Carell being gone.

I think The Inner Circle does play better a year removed from it's initial airing. This one was all about kissing up to the new Boss man that is  Deangelo, with the exception of Dwight, which made his scenes so much funnier. He is now doing the complete opposite of what he has done for the the entire series toward Michael. There really isn't much of a 'plot' here other than kissing ass. But its the little scenes where Deangelo is trying to fake his way through it all to garner his employee's 'respect', but it does the opposite. I thought the juggling scene was hilarious and the Basketball Dunking Contest and subsequent hospital trip was just as funny. The episode was indeed better the second time around for me, but in the end, there is still a massive hole that no one could conceivably fill or would ever be able to fill. Just look at the mess that is Season 8 (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/tv/the-office-(season-8)/msg707/#msg707) for proof of that.

Check out the final scene to see John Krasinski (Jim) break character by trying to keep from laughing at Will Ferrell.

So begins the revolving of Managers at Dunder Mifflin. With Deanglo now gone, Dwight is named 'acting manager' until they can find a permanent replacement. You know exactly what you're gonna get with Dwight steering the ship....a hard-ass with zero flexibly that rules with an iron fist and I wouldn't have it any other way. But when he accidently fires his gun in the office, that opens it up for some pretty big laughs with the rest of the employees hellbent on blackmailing Dwight. The funniest scene of course was when Kevin threathened to go to Jo about the gun incident unless he got a back massage from him. The ensuing massage had me rolling on the floor with laughter.

So, how do you end an episode like this? That's easy. You demote Dwight back to a salesman and then promote from within based on seniority. Yup, Creed is now the new Boss-man. Priceless. As for the "love triangle" between Andy, Erin and Gabe, I thought it was a bit creepy that Gabe is still basically stalking Erin and it makes no sense that he hasn't been fired not only for this, but from physically threatening Andy in the previous episode.

This is by for the most bizarre and surreal episode ever for The Office. It is so off-the-wall strange as everybody with a pulse comes in for a interview for the next managers position at Dunder Mifflin. And as far out crazy this episode was, it was entertaining for the most part. But it is definitely not a perfect episode. Far from it. I have been openly critical of how I hate when they bring in big Hollywood name actors into the series. It never feels right and always reeks of a desperate grab at ratings. Having said that, I thought Jim Carrey's cameo at the very end may have been the best guest-starring cameo ever for the show. When this first aired on broadcast TV, I immediately thought it would be super cool if Carrey actually got the job and would become a fixer in the series. Alas, that didn't happen.

Other guest stars in this episode were Will Arnett, Warren Buffet, Ray Romano, James Spader, Catherine Tate and Ricky Gervais, who in the end should have taken over the role left vacated by the irreplaceable Steve Carell. Ah yes, Steve Carell. In the back of my (ours) mind we are always made aware that he is gone and that no one can ever replace him. This is what ultimately  drags this episode down. It's like the writers of the show are basically run in circles, looking for something to say and do. It's kind of what every episode has been like since Goodbye, Michael aired.

Let's move on to what was good about this episode, namely Creed. I knew he was going to hit it out of the park the minute they opened the episode with him driving up to work and tossing his keys to a valet that wasn't even there to begin with. His talking head scenes were hilarious and his "managing" throughout the day even more so. Loved the voices that Pam came up with to dupe Creed into thinking he was talking with clients. Dwight's 'self-interview' was very funny as well.

With that said, they should have ended not just this season, but the series when Michael Scott walked off into the sunset with Goodbye, Michael. It would have gone down as the greatest series finale ever. But instead it will only be remembered as the last truly great episode of The Office.

Even though The Office is nowhere what it once use to be, Season 7 is definitely better than Season 6, but not by much. There is a good run of episodes near the end with Michael and Holly that served to remind us of the best the series ever had to offer. Although the last few episodes after Carell's depature were better the second time around, it still could not mask this huge hole that he left in his wake. This is definitely worth a Buy just for his swan song episode and a few more than that as well.

I'm in a huge Michael Scott withdrawal right now that I'm going to actually rewatch Seasons 1 and Season 2 again to get my fix. Sue me
