The Office, Season 4: Premier Review

by Ed Lau on October 6, 2007

The Office, Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly

There was probably only one or two shows I was more excited to see return than The Office. Last season’s ending wasn’t exactly a cliffhanger but you REALLY wanted to see what would happen with Jim and Pam. With the British edition of The Office lasting only twelve episodes (and a Christmas special), I was really happy that the American version was renewed for a fourth season consisting of thirty half-hours worth.

There’s no show on television that is as hilariously uncomfortable as The Office. Every moment is such a perfect mix of funny and awkward. Everything Michael Scott says…well, you just feel embarrassed for him.

The Office, Creed

I also love how we keep learning new things about Creed, who was apparently a cult leader and a follower…and older than 75.

The Office, Michael Scott, Steve Carell

There have been so many great moments so far in two episodes, from the “Michel Scott’s Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race For The Cure” and Andy’s chaffed nipples to Phylis trying to figure out how to use a BlackBerry but by far the best line ever is…

If you don’t why that’s awesome, then you need awesome lessons.

That line freakin’ blew my mind.

This show is a comedy essential so if you don’t want to have to take awesome lessons, you’re going to want to catch The Office every Thursday.

Hey Ed,

Good meeting you yesterday. I’ll try and make it again sometime (maybe I’ll even get more adventurous with my meal :) )

Re the office: yeh its a hilarious show. Interestingly, it probably one of the very few times the Americans have actually improved upon the British version.

Cya round

I love this show as well and have been very happy with the hour long shows this season. Last week’s show was great with Dwight trying to outsell the computer and how Jim/Pam were messing with him via IM. Classic!
