What I'm Watching: The Office

The Office: Season 5, Episode 4 "Crime Aid" (B+)

This is an overall enjoyable episode, particularly fun because it highlights the terrific yet somewhat dysfunctional relationship between Michael and Holly, now sure to come to an end due to their indiscretion around one David Wallace. I thought the auction was great, especially all the items that Michael got together, including Phyllis' hug that went for $1000 ("$500 and one penny!") and David Wallace's surprising willingness to come auction off a weekend at his country home. Dwight's hopeless pursuit of Angela and his turning to Phyllis for aid was alternately endearing and hilarious. Jim and Pam seem to be on the sidelines for the moment, but I like that their relationship seems to endure even though we never see them together.
