No TV show makes working a mundane 9-5 job so appealing as NBC’s THE OFFICE. Tonight’s episode centered around ‘take your daughter to work day’. Naturally hilarity ensued as each Dunder Mifflin employee interacted with the visiting kids. There were so many great moments and quotes I’d like to pull out from the episode. My three favourite are as follows:
1) The kids debating Michael on the value of Dunder Mifflin… doesn’t Office Depot do a better job? That was great. Pointing out the obvious… what exactly is the point of Dunder Mifflin?
2) Dwight explaining at the end of the episode how in the olden days, kids were highly valued by the Schrute Family as little workers (or food if there was a bad harvest!).
3) A young Michael Scott in a suit was so funny. It was funny and sad at the same time when Michael realized he hadn’t accomplished his goals of starting a family.
This show keeps getting funnier and funnier. I look forward to future episodes, where hopefully we’ll get to see how Michael’s online dating life is treating him! (At the end of the episode, Michael, realizing that he hasn’t gotten married or had kids yet, created an online dating profile to help reach his goal of having a family).
In other fantastic OFFICE news, fellow Office addicts won’t have to wait till Fall06 to get their Office Fix. NBC is planning to shoot 10 online-only “webisodes” of its critically acclaimed comedy to air during the summer. The new material will bring some of the show’s supporting players front and center as the Dunder Mifflin accounting staff searches for a stash of cash that’s gone missing from the Scranton office.
