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

In the hospital the ER doctor orders Dwight a CT. Later the nurse advises that all metal needs to be removed and won't allow Michael in the CT room until he looses all metal on his personage. This wouldn't be necessary for a CT which uses X-Rays and is not magnetic. The only metal that would hinder the procedure is metal that would show in the actual image. For the example of a head scan, earrings would need to be removed. Furthermore, the actual procedure done on Dwight is in an MRI machine which would react with metal. See more »

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,
