Doomsday



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?

Pam's Replacement




So, Steve Moore 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.

Gettysburg



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.

Mrs. California



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.

Christmas Wishes



Ed Helms


John Krasinski & Rainn Wilson


Rainn Wilson


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.

Trivia





Zach Woods & Rainn Wilson



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.

Pool Party



The Real Dwight Schrute


Leslie David Baker


John Krasinski


Ellie Kemper & Rainn Wilson


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.

Jury Duty















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!!!!
