Quotes

Robert California: Let me tell you some things I find productive. Positive reinforcement. Negative reinforcement. Honesty. I'll tell you some things I find unproductive. Constantly worrying about where you stand based on inscrutable social clues and then inevitably reframing it all in a reassuring way so that you can get to sleep at night. No I do not believe in that at all. If I invited you to lunch I think you're a winner, if I didn't I don't, but I just met you all. Life is long, opinions change. Winners prove...

Very funny premiere
25 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's definitely different without Michael Scott, but I was pleasantly surprised and overwhelmed by how funny this show is. Andy was definitely the right choice for manager and James Spader is perfect as the new boss. Dwight is completely ridiculous and absolutely hilarious, especially with policing the planking. They put Jenna Fischer's pregnancy to use and made Pam pregnant again, which was clever by the producers, but also kinda weird. Also, Angela was pregnant with the Senator, and I died laughing when I found out they got married. Everyone else (Stanley, Phyllis, Oscar, Toby, Darryl, Ryan, Erin, Kelly, Creed, Jim, and anyone else I'm missing) all had their own moments to shine and the made this episode great.

Based on this premiere, I am very excited for this year and hope the rest of the season is as funny as this episode.
