Trivia

Towards the end of the garden party, Pam, seeing Dwight and his catering employees with torches doing sort of tribal ritual, asks Jim "what are they doing?" Jim says "closing ceremonies." "Nice touch," Pam says. Closing ceremonies are important to Pam and Jim and the conversation in this episode closely mirrors an interaction they had in Season 2, Episode 3 "Office Olympics."

This isn't The Office that I know and love.
4 November 2011 | by dc-988-297627See all my reviews

Disappointing to see Pam successfully out-bitching Angela. This reduced her character and instantly turned her into an unlikeable character.

Angela's signature persona was cold and judgemental from the start, and it was always very entertaining to watch her roll her eyes and walk away from employees / activities she deemed unprofessional. Pam's transition from a naive, determined and respectable character to a boring version of Angela was a huge disappointment for me.

Ed Helms was clearly desperate to entertain us, and unfortunately the end result he produced was The Hangover style lowbrow comedy, which was awful to watch.

The only highlight of this series was Dwight's seriousness in organising and performing opening and closing ceremonies, which was true to his character.
