Stress Relief, 3 February 2009
Author: espunier from Spain
I saw the first four season of the office in about three weeks, just to catch up with the fifth season.
And this is BY FAR the best episode of the office i have had the pleasure to see.
EVERYTHING for this episode is worth mentioning. The crazy beginning, which got me cracked up with Angela's effort to have her cat saved, the Hannibal Lecter CPR moment, the Lily movie, Andy crying, Pam and her parents, Michael feeding pigeons.
It all adds up to the climax, Michael trying to offend Stanley and Stanley laughing.
It just made me realize that Michael Scott is like a grown up child in a playground. A playground called Dunder Mifflin.

HILARIOUS! One of the Best Office episodes EVER!, 2 February 2009
Author: MicBeam10 from United States
I thought this episode was absolutely hilarious,I enjoyed the whole episode and I was disappointed when the commercials came on because I was basically anticipating more, I was a little disappointed with the appearances of Jack Black, Jessica Alba, and Cloris Leachman, because I thought they were going to interact with the Dunder Mifflin workers, but even thought that didn't happen what they did do was hilarious and I enjoyed it. If you are a fan of the Office I guarantee you will love this episode as much as I did. Shout out to the Creators, GREAT JOB! I am really looking forward to the next episode, and I hope it is just as funny as this one. Greg Daniels you are my hero keep doing the amazing work that has already been done!

It'll grow on you, 14 December 2009
Author: alisabuechel from United States
DKOSTY; This show is not really one you can start watching beginning with the 5th season. It has a lot of inter-office politics, jokes that have a foundation on the other seasons, dry sarcastic wit and over-the-top inappropriateness (part of a few actor's characters) and especially jokes that are only understood if you understand the characters. "That guy that started the fire" is supposed to come off as a total idiot. That's his character. It's true this show has a lot of subtle humor and the style is not for everyone, but I hope you give it a chance because it's just the kind of show that will grow on you if you do.

What the hell is this? This is amazing!, 28 May 2009
Author: Ignacio G from Argentina
What the hell is this was my first impression after notice that this
wasn't Lost! Yes, I was looking for the episode of Season 5 Episode 13
of Lost but I made a mistake and I got this episode of The Office.
I knew the show but I never put attention to it, I think I saw one episode and this one. My god, this episode was AMAZING! This worth watch all the entire seasons.
Thanks for my mistake, I found a very awesome show to start to see now. Laugh, laugh and laugh, can't stop. This is episode make me laugh harder like no other time.
Steve Carell was really funny on The 40 Year Old Virgin, but here, is more and more funny. And I want to honored to Ed Helms... my god, that guy is really funny I love him.
So, here I am trying to get all the seasons now, lucky me I have plenty to see now after the ending of Lost :( Watch The Office if you wanna laugh!

Kind Of A Slow Show After Great Super Bowl, 4 February 2009
Author: DKOSTY from United States
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
I had never seen this show prior to it being on after the Super Bowl.
This particular post-Super Bowl edition featured Jack Black & Jessica
Alba as guest stars. As it is the first show of the series I have
watched, it is all new to me.
From what I saw here, there must be better shows. This one reminded me of and hour-long poor imitation of Scrubs only the jokes seemed to go from terrible to worse with no rhyme or reason. What I saw is some totally crazy sequences and then it seemed like the show had so many commercial breaks that by the time it got back again, you kind of lost track of where you were anyhow.
Jack Black and Alba both were little more than cameos and the guy who worked in the office that initially starts a fire in the beginning of the show must have been a regular because in the real world he would have been fired. In fact, he comes off as a total idiot in this episode. That makes me assume that by watching other shows a viewer is likely to pass this off as his normal behavior?
I am sure NBC got some ratings on this in that time spot but I was not impressed enough by this one to search out other episodes so this might be the only one I ever watch.
I have watched other episodes in this series now, and this is by far the worst one I have seen. Other episodes are much more humorous. I think NBC thought the time slot after the Super Bowl and the guest cast would make up for a lack of script.
