Tv Season Info

As the sterling mockumentary opens its sixth season, the Dunder Mifflin staffers are gossip girls and guys. When they share gossip about the summer interns, Michael (Steve Carell) feels left out of the fun chatter and desperately goes hunting for the next big rumor to spread. Meanwhile, opposite-sex issues rattle Andy (Ed Helms). Later in the season, The staffers travel to the lovebird capital, Niagara Falls, to celebrate the nuptials of Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer). The big event does come with one caveat, however: no one must mention Pam's pregnancy. Other noteworthy plot lines include: Dunder Mifflin's buyout by Sabre, a Florida-based conglomerate headed by hard-nosed CEO Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates); the arrival of Jim and Pam's first child, Cecelia Marie "CeCe" Halpert; and a whistleblower scandal that rocks the Scranton office, and threatens to destroy the parent company.

We've never seen that facet before, and we're certain we don't like it, either.

It was gratifying to see some social relevance, with the corporate structure of Dunder Mifflin, portrayed as an unstable company since the very first episode, in serious economic trouble.

I honestly do appreciate the comedy of discomfort, but don't you kind of wish that just once ... just once ... Michael Scott could win the day without making the rest of us feel so unbelievably uncomfortable.

"The Banker" was hardly an episode at all, but rather a clip show.

Overall, this was a strong if not essential episode - it didn't move any major story arcs along at all, but it was solidly funny.

Ed Helms [is] about to become a much bigger character. And thank heavens for that.

Mar 19, 2018 | Full Review…

From a pitch-perfect cold open rich in physical comedy to an amusing subplot involving the intern's Sisyphus-like existences, tonight was a breezy, consistently funny return from an old favorite. I remain, uncharacteristically, deeply optimistic.
