The List

(http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Star%20Ratings/HTL_03star.gif)

So, this morning I woke up knowing that I would get to watch the premiere of the new season for The Office and I was excited....for a second. And then the reality hit me that Steve Carell was in fact off the show. I went into The List in a sour mood and it didn't get any better while watching it. James Spader has always just always rubbed me the wrong way, more so now that he is on the show.

The planking gag at the beginning of the episode was funny if I do say so myself. But the rest of the episode felt "off". I kept waiting for Michael Scott to walk in through the door. :::sigh:::

I did like the ending when Andy (the new regional warehouse manager) stood up for the rest of his co-workers. But overall this was just average. I hope they can improve here and getting better for the remainder of the season.

This one was weird. Weird funny. It seems they are going more for physical. slapstick comedy this season to make up for the loss of Steve Carrell. Whatever the case may be, this was still a funny episode. Although the "I can't hear" guy was a bit annoying.

The funniest thing about this episode was the epilogue when Jim has Dwight announcing his arrival to the Garden Party every 5 seconds. The rest of the episode was meh. A few laughs, but overall fell flat. They get Dee Wallace to play Andy's Mom, yet she barely has any lines. What's up with that? Josh Groban guest stars as Andy's brother and Stephen Collins as his Father.

This may have been a Halloween episode and the characters were dressed in different costumes, but it was clear to me that they were all Zombies since they were sleepwalking through this episode. That was painful. Bad. Not funny. This season is turning out to be a bore and looking back on the star ratings I've given, this will be the end of the road for the series. I can't see how they will turn it around. I love the show and the characters but I gotta say it's time to pull the plug. I hope they bring back Steve Carrell for the Series Finale to wrap it up because I know it would be funny....it would be good....it would be fitting.

This had a couple of giggle moments, but not much of anything else. The "resolution" to both the Doomsday angle and the Gabe/Val angle had no clear ending, other than it just ended. Both fell flat and it seemed like the writers just didn't care enough to hammer it home with the buildup it was leaning toward.

Time to pull the plug on this. Why am I still watching this show?

So, Steve Moore (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/drum-gods-past-present-and-future/msg875/#msg875) had his big debut last night on The Office. Overall the episode was meh. But I did find the Jim/Dwight/Pam story line pretty funny, especially when Dwight "trips" and lands on Jim's crotch with his hand....repeatedly. The story line revolving around Kevin And The Zits was weak.

This season sure has been hit or miss. The pattern seems to be a couple of lackluster episodes followed by a brilliant, funny one. This is one of them and this is definitely the year of Kevin. From his Stapler-Marker to his Cookies analogy to his Free Big Mac idea, he had me laughing the entire time. Also funny was the revelation of what the Schrute Farms Civil War really was. Let's just say that Oscar upon hearing this was veeeeeeeeery happy. I knew this was going to be a good episode just based on the opening with Pam's Fake Labor gag.

One of the funniest episodes this season by far. The cold opening with Dwight refusing to sit was one the better openings in a long while, culminating with Jim pushing him over. Sure, this went for the cheap laugh of physical comedy, but it worked. Dwight opening up his own Gym with rocks and barn tools was a nice touch. But it was the dialogue between him and Darryl that had me howling.

Dwight: I'm gonna make you look like Lebron James.

Darryl: It's LeJohn Brames.

Also,

Dwight: What's your goal?

Darryl: To look good for Val.

Dwight: Val Kilmer? That doesn't make any sense.

Funny stuff. Also, it was cool to see Maura Tierney pop up as the wife of Robert California. I'd like to see more of her on the show for sure.

Plenty of funny moments in this one. From Kevin giving Robert a bear hug to the escalating prank wars between Jim and Dwight. But the best moment was clearly when Dwight started to air guitar to the song Christmas Eve by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It was awesome! Not bad for a Xmas episode if I do say so myself. Not in the same league of any Steve Carell episodes with him in the Santa outfit. But it held it's own for sure.

The gang had a pretty good run of top notch episodes. But all good things must come to an end. Trivia was basically a Bar competition for $1,000 prize. I'm kinda shocked that it took 8 seasons for them to get around to swiping this plot from UK version of The Office, which was much funnier...like gut busting funny. Here, not so much. And the whole Gabe/Dwight/Robert story was boring.

That didn't take long to regain their momentum. This was top shelf all the way and had me howling. So damn funny it hurts. From the opening bit trying to make Stanley laugh to the pool party itself and the end with Gabe and Ryan trying to impress Robert California by staying at the party long after it's over was good good stuff. Looks like the writers are going to get Andy and Erin back together which would be a good thing for the series for comedy gold and mine that awkwardness they have around each other.

It never occurred to me that Angela was pregnant with another man's child, even though the gang had alreadly made it known that her Husband the Senator was gay. So, once the baby arrived and Oscar figured out that Angela had the baby a month earlier, I knew right away that Dwight was the father. This is a nice new arc that is sure to yield some golden comedy nuggets.

But the funniest moment in Jury Duty was when Kelly, seeing through Jim's ruse about the kid drawings tears up her own drawing. Haha. Evil! And classic!!!!

Another great episode. I don't know what it is, but the gang is really clicking. I think the biggest thing not heaping everything on Andy and trying to make him another version of Michael Scott. When they involved all the characters, it's far more interesting and gives them a better chance of mining for laughs, intentional or not. So, looks like Kathy is going to try and wreak Jim and Pam's marriage now that she is part of the Special Project's team heading to Florida. They also set up that Erin who is also part of the team will not be coming back. My guess is this is a set up for Andy to FINALLY realize what he is losing and will chase after her all the way down to Florida to woo her back, but it will probably be too little too late as she most likely will find someone else by then.

Ugh. Todd Packer returns. You can't bring somebody back once he has been banished from Dunder Mifflin!!!!!! Even with this slight misstep, the episode was incredibly funny....and disgusting.

This one was all about Dwight and how awesomely funny he is without even knowing it. From his "wooing" techniques of using Seagull Sounds as his mating call to his ability to fend of Bed Bugs, he was making me laugh very hard. Also, Ryan "wooing" Erin was pretty damn funny, punctuating the scene with "I'm in love with Kelly" when he saw that he had bitten off a little more than he could chew. Props to Jim and his ability to walk away from a sticky situation. Props to Darryl for putting himself out there with Val..... <----- That's dot, dot, dot, dot and dot for the uninitiated.

This episode was so freaking bizarre and yet it was funny as it's ever been this season. From Andy getting his has kicked by a 12 year-old girl to Erin posing as a hip shopper to Ryan's meltdown to Jim's presentation, I just could not stop laughing. Even Toby teaching "self defense" class produced probably the funniest moment this season when Creed stands up, hits Meredith in the head and then runs off. Good stuff.

Dwight was being a total ass (like that's new). If someone was acting like that, I wouldn't go out of my way to save his job. If anything, I'd ask if I could be the one to fire his him. But I will say that Jim's decision to go forward and save Dwight led to some funny moments in the hallway to keep him from reaching the meeting. So long Todd Packer. This time....stay gone!!

Andy is off to win back Erin. A little too late in the game. I'm sure the writers are purposely setting it up as a cliffhanger; Will she stay or will she come back home? The scene's with Darryl, Toby and Kevin was the best part of the episode. Kevin making out with Meredith was hilarious.

A very odd episode for a number of reasons. First, Nellie, who has been really annoying up till now, decides to claim the manager's job in Scranton as her own and seize's the moment to steal the job from Andy who is off in Florida trying to woo Erin back. Although I'm not particularly fond of Nellie, I do like that the writer's have gone back to using the Ricky Gervais mold of making the character extremely uncomfortable to watch. I was literally squirming in my seat watching this episode because she made me feel very uncomfortable, which is what her role in the show is suppose to do.

As for Andy and Erin, I didn't think they were able to quite pull off what they were aiming for, so when it came to Erin finally accepting Andy and agreeing to return with him, it was lackluster. The old lady and the son just ruined any kind of moment Andy and Erin could have had. Just an average episode. Not sure if I should blame Rainn Wilson since he directed the episode. But he should be accountable for sure. And since I'm pointing out technical things regarding the episodes production work....

....what's the deal with Erin being filmed in Green Screen? It's clear that she was superimposed as seen in the third ScreenCap image above.

This episode was only slightly better than the last one and a lot of that goes to Jim sabotaging the Magician's performance so that Nellie's feelings would be spared. I don't know what it is, but the whole Andy/Erin thing is misfiring big time. It seems that Erin 'longing' for Andy was a better story arc than them actually getting together.

In other news, James Spader who plays Robert California will not be returning next season and the same goes for Paul Lieberstein who plays Toby as well as being the show-runner for The Office. He will be focusing his attention on The Farm, which is a spin-off from the show that will have Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) running is Bed & Breakfast from his Beet Farm. Mindy Kaling who plays Kelly Kapoor has a Pilot on FOX in the works and if that gets picked up, she too will be saying goodbye to The Office.

Season 9 really doesn't look promising given that talks between NBC and John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, B. J. Novak and Ed Helms have come to a standstill.

I've heard the criticism this episode in particular has gotten, and most of it is pretty much spot on. Just looking at the title of the episode, I knew what I was in for. It was a return to Andy's former self where everything  p i s s e s  him off. But in this case, I think it's justified because he had no other emotion but anger when he finds out that he has been replaced by Nellie. On top of that, no one in the office even has his back. This part of the episode really isn't what I have an issue with. It's the whole Kelly / Ryan angle. It's old and boring and doesn't really elicit any kind of humor. If anything, it just further emphasizes how stupid both characters are. Kelly is in a great "relationship" with Ravi played by Sendhil Ramamurthy of Heroes fame, but then throws it all away because Ryan is able to lead her on to the idea that they will "get married, some day.....in the future....probably not".

As bad as the episode is, there are some pretty funny laugh out loud moments to be found here. Dwight for the win. "I'm gonna prove it right here, right now". The conference room meeting about Impotence was indeed funny. But there weren't enough of those funny moments to save the episode as a whole. Man, it's hard to believe there was a good run of episodes somewhere in the middle of the season, but the last handful of episodes have really nosedived into crap as it limps toward the Season and possibly Series Finale.

I did not think it was possible, but they were able to outdo themselves by turning out and even worse episode than last weeks. Just bad all around. Andy, with his "I'm fine" mentality was just unbearable to watch. This episode had only 2 things that I would consider funny, one of them obviously unintentional.

The taco gag was indeed funny. Well, maybe it was Craig Robinson (Darryl) trying to stay in character and not laugh too much at what Eliie was trying to do with her Taco, which made it funnier than what it actually was. And I, like everyone else just figured that Kevin was taking "care" of a dead dog, which is somewhat of an accurate description of what The Office is now.

Time to pull the plug.......

I knew that Andy would land the deal with the paper company and figured he would use it for leverage to get back his old job. That part actually happened, but I didn't see Robert actually turning down the offer. The biggest surprise for me was seeing Andy offer the the proposition of buying Dunder Mifflin to David Wallace. I thought his cameo was a one time thing last week. If he does end up investing in the company, it would be a huge step in the right direction to go back to what Dunder Mifflin was....a paper company, and not Sabre, which is something I've always thought to be dumb. Different product = different show in a lot of ways.

Also, one of the best cold openings to any episode this season. So damn funny!!! (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/ROFL.gif)

This episode was better than I was expecting. I was pretty convinced that it was going to tank big time. But I thought the Andy-as-a-Janitor gag was entertaining, because of the fact that he couldn't get any satisfaction out of it. Not sure why he would turn around and hire Nellie, who originally stole his Manager's position. I thought the reaction of everyone in the Office about Andy's imaginary friend "David Wallace" was the funniest laugh I had in the entire episode and when Erin started to have doubts about the validity of Andy's conversations with David, I couldn't stop laughing.

I like the twist with Darryl getting the girl that he has been pining for most of the season. The Dwight/Angela thing is interesting, especially with them making out at the end, waiting for the paternity test. We all know it's Dwight's baby, so it's kinda a weak "Cliffhanger" for the show to hang it's hat on in hoping people tune in next season.

Also, putting 2 Heroes (Jack Coleman and Sendhil Ramamurthy) in the same episode is probably not the smartest move. They couldn't carry their own show, no need to tank this one as well. Just sayin'.

Okay, having just watched Season 8 for the first time since it originally aired on TV, my feelings for this season really haven't changed all that much. It's still the worst season there is. I thought that with time, things would have aged better or whatever you want to call it in regards to what happens here. There's no getting around it. The lost of Steve Carrell was just too much to get over and it shows here. Kind of a aimless, wandering type of plot with no sense of direction. With that said, watching James Spader again was....eye opening. What I hated the first time around became more problematic this time because now all I could see in his acting was a precursor to what would become Raymond Reddington from The Blacklist. Only difference is that he still has hair. Now his performance in The Office is not bad by any stretch....it's just jarring because I still watch The Blacklist and that's all I could see here.
