Angry Andy

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 But in this case, I think it's justified because he had no other emotion but anger when he finds out that he has been replaced by Nellie.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 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.
