Why the bad reviews??
17 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I don't get it. Am i the only one who's enjoying this season? I mean come on! I don't know what's gotten into the critics..! This was the best episode of this season yet. For me this is the episode where the little story arcs start to develop fully. Of course it isn't as great as Season 1-7.. thats because there's no Michael in it. But i think critics should stop whining about it and move on.

I really liked how they are exploiting Dwight. And the Oscar-Senator affair is just getting deliciously complicated. It's more like a nod to the Dwight-Angela affair when she was engaged to Andy in one of the previous Seasons. So what happened to Andy is sort of happening to her. :) There were some really good funny lines like when Pam says, "I used to watch Pulp fiction and laugh, now I'm like, 'that poor gimp is somebody's child!' "... :) Very good episode. Please do not stop watching because of the critics. Just trust yourselves and enjoy. :)
