Hilarious but wait ! are'nt we forgetting something???
5 December 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Had quite a few number of laughs after watching this episode of the office. Dwight Shrute's extremely funny gym ideas and Daryll's equally funny remarks had me rolling on the floor laughing my head off. However i could not connect with Robert California's sudden predicament. Could'nt the man who manipulated the very boss of the company into giving him her job manage to convince his wife into not joining the Scranton branch? Although it was funny, the very idea of seeing a helpless bob was very inconsistent with his image that we all have come to like and fear to the same extent :-) Here's hoping that the episodes that follow will have the same if not more humor quotient in them.
