UK & US Pilot Compare and Contrast

13 Dec

In case any watchers of the U.S. version of The Office didn’t already know, the very first episode from the very first season, refereed to as “Pilot” has a slew of similarities with the pilot episode of the British version. Steve Carell did not even allow himself to watch the UK version of The Office for fear that he would accidentally copy Ricky Gervais‘ performance of his parallel character David BrentContinue reading

Jim & Pam

13 Dec

Although Jim and Pam have come a long way from just being in the “friend zone“, viewers would not truly be able to appreciate what is Jim and Pam without watching the development of their character relationship over time. The first two seasons of The Officealthough slow-moving, have some of the best and classic moments between this dynamic duo. One of the most important aspects of this phase is the fact that Pam is engaged to Roy Anderson. Continue reading

The Whale

19 Nov

Every episode I can’t expect things to get any worse for Andy, but the intro to this week’s episode totally proved me wrong. The workers in the office witness a very sun-burnt and delirious Andy who is stranded at sea.  After successfully managing to lose his only two sources of drinking water, he then loses the laptop and all contact with Andy is lost through a watery lens. Continue reading

The Boat

17 Nov

Once upon a time Michael Scott would have been the worst person to know your deepest, darkest secret, but I’m not sure how much of an improvement Kevin Malone is considered. However, the plot line setup for this episode is a hilarious idea. We have Oscar‘s logical, left-brained personality trying to reason with Kevin’s…uh, we’ll just say smaller brain. Continue reading

Here Comes Treble

5 Nov

Perhaps the scariest thing about this Halloween episode is that it is the last Halloween episode of The Office ever. Sigh. But before I go off on too much of a tangent, let’s talk about the intro, which I can adequately describe in one word – Hysterical. Dwight scares Erin by effortlessly putting his head inside of a pumpkin – if only it was as simple to get it out. Continue reading

Top 3 Michael Vs. Toby Episodes

15 Oct

Although viewers may never know what truly spurs Michael’s deep, hostile hatred for Toby, the scenarios that ensue are hilarious nonetheless. The workers in the office have just recently learned of Toby’s decision to go to Costa Rica and in season 4’s “Goodbye Toby” they throw a going away party for him. Well kind of for him, but we’ll get to that. Continue reading

Andy’s Ancestry

8 Oct

I wish I had already seen the intro to this episode before I wrote Favorite Jim & Dwight Pranks, because this may have been included. The workday begins just like any other in the office, until Dwight notices Jim’s new appearance – Asian Jim that is! A baffled Dwight puts the supposed Jim through a series of tests to assess his true identity, in which “Jim” passes them all. Continue reading
