The Office follows the SuperBowl!

Absurdity and awkwardness are afoot in this super sized post-Super Bowl episode! 
YES there were laugh out moments! Many of them in fact.
YES there were painful moments of silence! Many of them in fact.
But this was also just too over the top for me. I mean Dwight is a maniac! I hoped that they would let us know that his grief over Angela has fractured his psyche’ or are we to assume that or just go with his wildness? I can’t imagine after Michael’s trip to David Wallace last week that this reflects positively on his ‘creative management style.’ 

For fun, go check this out when you’re finished:

Recap:

Dwight’s off the deep end shenanigans remove him from Safety Officer and when Michael finds out he’s the stressor of the office, he suggests they roast him!

Pam and Jim see their relationship in a whole new way after observing some turmoil that her parents are going through.  

NOTE: it was shameful for them to boast appearances by Jack Black and Jessica Alba! Seriously? Weird. Odd. Out of place! Not even ‘in’ the show! What a letdown NBC.

    It was great! One of the best cold-openers for sure. I agree that the cameos were out of place and didn’t really add anything to the show. Highlights for me were: the montage of Stanly yelling at people, Michael roasting the office at the end, Dwight cutting Resuscitation Annie open then cutting off her face and wearing it like silence of the lambs!!
