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.

After this admirable but uneven season, should we start asking ourselves just how much longer The Office has in it?

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

"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.

Outside of a few episodes and moments, this was a really frustrating year.

Feb 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Funny, and infinitely watchable, but somehow a little disjointed and lacking.

Feb 24, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The formula is becoming bland.

Feb 24, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The reason that The Office continues to be one of the best shows on television is because we have come to know its characters so well over the course of the last six years.

Feb 20, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 30, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for The Office: Season 6

  • 2d ago
    8.9/10 Not as good as the previous 4 seasons but still excellent even though this season has the least memorable episodes.
  • Sep 12, 2020
    This season possibly has the best portion of the story of The Office and has all the laughs that previous seasons do. Great season that won't leave you bored for a moment.
  • Jun 19, 2020
    Over five seasons, we have grown to love these characters so much that they could do pretty much anything and we would find it funny. Season 6 felt a little more uneventful than its predecessors, but it's still comedy gold. I can't get enough of Michael Scott, I just can't.

    It's ok close to being good bt Had some problems that didn't work Had some funny moments Don't get me wrong I loved the Nigeria episodes bt season could have been a bit better at least
  • May 15, 2020
    Sadly the addition of Sabre ruined the quality of this season, but the most crucial scene was the Niagara part 2 at Jim and Pam's wedding. I mean, come on, Michael didn't made a scene, Dwight didn't sabotaged that and it was, by far the most emotional scene I've ever watched, I almost bursted into tears, i love this show so much !!!!!!
  • May 09, 2020
    The office still has its magic and delivers and some amazing episodes .
  • Apr 09, 2020
    I'm almost done with this season, and so far it's my favorite season
  • Mar 15, 2020
    Season 6 is sadly where The Office loses its perfect streak, but it is still really good. Niagara is one of the best episodes of the show, and there are still some great moments and episodes throughout. However, the addition of Sabre and the characters that came with it was a major mistake because it is one of the only things that didn't work on The Office. Also, this is the first season to have some really weak episodes. But, I still love this season for many reasons, and it is still one I like to revisit.
  • Feb 03, 2020
    The best season out of the entire franchise
  • Dec 21, 2019
    I found it to be a bit less entertaining once Sabre enters the picture, but season 6 still has iconic episodes such as Niagara. (B+)
