More subtlety!
4 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pleasantly surprised by this episode, as I was expecting immature teenage-movie comedy as seen in the previous episodes. Glad to see that The Office has returned to believable plots (or at least partially believable). A far cry from the over the top 'The Hangover' style slapstick mess that we've been seeing recently. The producers really need to stay away from turning the show into a teenage-movie comedy / sitcom.

Erin's silliness, although charming, sometimes spoils the atmosphere of the show. I have also noticed that Oscar has gone slightly goofy this season. It would be much more enjoyable to watch if there were more naive characters (like the old Pam).

I am still looking forward to the moment that The Office will fully recover from the lowbrow humour that we've seen recently. I miss the awkward reactions from Season 1, 2, and 3. E.g. the characters looking at the camera when they are uncomfortable or when someone does something unprofessional etc. Currently, the employees appear to readily accept inappropriate behaviour in the office, and the whole show feels like a sitcom. We need more head shaking, eye rolling and walking away from Angela. We need to see some characters telling Andy that they need to get on with their work. Make it believable! Just my suggestion on how the The Office could go about if its still wants to claim itself as a mockumentary.

Overall it is a step in the right direction. It is episodes like these that show that there is still a glimmer of hope left for this show.
