Dwight the Orator
25 July 2006 | by (High Point, NC) – See all my reviews

Rainn Wilson, not Steve Carell, is the driving force of this show. In this episode, one of the funniest of the series, he drives this fact home. This episode has everything a fan of the Office could want. There's little hints about Dwight and Angela's relationship, there's growing turmoil in the quasi-relationship of Jim and Pam, and a great performance by Steve Carell.

All of this is overshadowed, however, by Dwight's presence. His speech had me rolling on the floor, and then checking all over the internet later to figure out where some parts of the speech came from. See if you can pick out some of the references to speeches by Churchill, Lenin, and Mussolini.

This episode just once again goes to show why the Office is the funniest show on TV right now. Let's hope NBC hangs onto it for as long as they can stay funny.
