Great Intro
26 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure, there have been funnier episodes and there will also be funnier in the future. But the intro was classic and more than made up for anything lacking in this one. Frankly I have to get caught up and the new characters etc, from recent previous episodes, and I shall.

All the cast is there... there writers are in place. I am certain the magic (Not Micheal's Magic) will make another season worthwhile for viewing.

OK what is up with this 10 line minimum for the review. Who's idea was that??

Here's the start of another great season of The Office and I look forward to them weekly!
