What I'm Watching: The Office

The Office: Season 4, Episode 9 "Dinner Party" (A-)

What a glorious recovery from the last "Office" episode in November! And when I said that the office workers needed to stop taking field trips, perhaps I spoke too soon! This episode is absolutely and completely funny, and enormous credit is due to the eight actors who play the dinner party attendees. John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer especially excel in this episode, and the looks on their faces when Jim attempts to escape with that flood excuse and leave Pam behind are priceless. They should definitely submit these episodes to get Emmy nominations. Steve Carrell does a commendable job as well, though the episode where he drove his car into the lake may well be the one that could garner him an Emmy, if he doesn't get thwarted by the ever-popular Alec Baldwin. Jan is crazy! Enough said! There are so many funny moments in this episode; simply put, if you didn't see it, go watch it now. Here's to a tremendously fantastic rest of the season!
