Michael, being Michael Scott, overreacts to an 'injury' he has. This steers everyone away from realising that Dwight is the one with a more serious injury. No matter how ill or injured you are though, if you call shotgun, you get the front seat, no matter what...at least according to Michael. Written by Lucan Reynolds

When Jim, Dwight, and Michael are loading into Meredith's minivan to take Dwight to the hospital, Michael wants to know why Meredith drives a minivan. Jim says, "She has a kid," and Michael follows with "She has one kid and no husband and she's not going to get one driving this thing." From Episode #1.4, "The Alliance", we already know that Meredith has "two kids" according to Dwight's brief biography on Meredith as Michael tries to write something witty in her birthday card.

Mediocre, again.
9 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The office continues to disappoint me. I can't believe this has a 9.0/10. I chuckled a few times, but I have laughed harder in other episodes, like The Fire and Office Olympics. I will continue to watch to see if it gets better, but right now this show is a solid 6/10. I prefer Modern Family to this by far, but at least The Office is better than The Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother. On any other show, comedy or drama, a 9.0/10 is utterly brilliant. I keep thinking that this show is a waste of my time. I could be watching an actual program, like Doctor Who or the Walking Dead. Michael is an OK character, and the rest of the cast isn't very comical either. Once again, disappointing,
