    Very solid season with a great cliffhanger.
  • May 30, 2021
    Another great season of The Office!
  • Apr 20, 2021
    Clearly, the best season of The office! So many highlights! It is The office at his peek. It doesn't change from what the show have set before, but it is well-written, the relationships between the characters are at their funniest (Michael-Toby, Dwight-Jim) and Michael is just a great show.
  • Apr 08, 2021

  • Feb 21, 2021
    An amazing season, definitely one of the best.
  • Dec 28, 2020
    most of the episodes are 5 stars but the later episodes are what brings my rating down
  • Oct 23, 2020
    The Office Season 5 is just as funny as the last seasons, although it does feel a little long at times.
  • Sep 24, 2020
    9.4/10 The dam stress relief episode is so good and the pinnacle of the show. It undermines how great the other seasons are.
