Despite what others seem to think..

This is some of The Office at its best. Scissor me? The whole thing with that cheap Saber merch? Then Dwight goes on to nail two flawless Dwight lines back to back. I mean what more can you ask for? The first two and a half minutes are Office gold, my sides hurt. Fine, the song is cheesy, but the pure train wreck that ensues as it continues into the chorus is worth the price of admittance. What isn't funny about that? After that they get they pull the throttle back, get the nose up and the episode evens out a little bit through a BIZARRE Christian Slater appearance and some other random scenes. But how can you watch this episode and say the show should have gotten a bullet to its head like the other reviewer? Okay, I didn't NEED to watch Jim walk in on Dr. Bobolit taking a dump in a child's bathroom but I can't deny laughing at it. We get the first appearance of Gabe and Bizzaro David Wallace which are both creepy and hilarious at the same time. I guess to wrap it up, this ep is easily in my top 20 and if you really enjoy The Office I'd say it's required viewing.
