Great Episode in an otherwise disappointing season!!!
16 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

To be honest with you guys, I have been very disappointed by the way the 9th season of the show.

It appeared to me as though the new writers involved were messing with everything that once made the show work. Any went from being a cheerful good hearted guy to a total loser. Jim and Pam who were an example of a match made in heaven to all the young couples out there started having issues that they would've steered clear off in the previous seasons. 16 episodes went by; as I watched this once great show self destruct slowly. There was a time when each 21 minute episode of the office would make me ROTFL at least 20 different times, but this time around I don't think I have laughed even once to any of the gags on the show even though 2/3rd s of the show has come to an end. However, 'The Farm' came as a welcome surprise; the reason is probably because the episode was written and directed by Paul Lieberstein who has written some of the best episodes of the entire season including my favorite 'Stress relief' from season 5.

The Farm brought back a lot of memories of the show's glorious past, Dwight's extended family is a hoot no wonder they planned an entire series based on that premise which unfortunately got cancelled. The scene that made me laugh the most was one were Dwight shoots his dead aunt with a shot gun thrice to make sure that she wasn't alive. There are a few scenes in this episode that were added later to make it look like a part of the rest of the season instead of a pilot to anew show.

I hope NBC releases the original pilot episode sometime soon. P.S One more thing Watch out for the return of the 'Pac Man'
