Sorry for the delay, but here's the review for "Secretary's Day."
Credit to Cindy White, IGN The Office: "Secretary's Day" Review We find out more about Erin than we ever wanted to know. by Cindy White April 23, 2010 - Two relatively new and minor characters got the spotlight in this week's episode, the first new one after three weeks of reruns. The holiday episodes of The Office are often some of the best, and they've already tackled Valentine's Day, Halloween, Christmas and St. Patrick's Day. So what's left? Secretary's Day, of course. And that means we get to find out a little more about Erin. In a nutshell (pun intended), she's even freakier than we thought.
The show kicked off with another great cold open, as the gang gathered to watch …

Say it ain't so. Steve Carell has said that he is now leaving the show after it tapes it's seventh season. Although, he is not 100% sure, he thinks that it will be his last season of the show while talking to the BBC about his new movie Date Night (Starring him and Tina Fey). His contract ends next season.

With Pam and Jim's story arc pretty much resolved at this point, The Office has been struggling noticeably to make lightning strike twice with another inter-office romance. Those conscious efforts have never been clearer than they are in "Happy Hour", an episode so concerned with match-making that it almost feels like an episode of Love Connection. Thankfully it's funny enough to compensate for the fact that the show's writers are so clearly grasping at straws to come up with another successful romantic subplot.
Before it ever got down to the business of match making, the episode began with one of the funniest cold openings in recent memory. I wasn't quite sure where they'd go with Michael's push-up contest, but that changed fairly quickly …Read more >
The Office rarely goes wrong when it hangs silly, irreverent gags on top of a more grounded hook, as it does to great effect in "New Leads." Having spent ample time in my fair share of workplaces, I know from first hand experience that the tension between an administrative staff and a sales force can sometimes be pretty thick. That simple, yet relatable premise helps bolster the episode's numerous jokes, and it makes "New Leads" one of the best and most satisfying outings of the season.
The episode definitely started off on the right foot. The cold opening featured one of those classic bits of silent comedy from Steve Carrell, where his facial expression alone delivers the big comedic pay-off. His reaction to Jim's suggestion that the Johnn…Read more >

March 12, 2010 - In general I much prefer to watch an episode of The Office meander from one comedic set-up to the next than try to tell a more straight forward narrative, a task it recently has struggled with rather mightily. Which is why I quite enjoyed "St. Patrick's Day." The episode uses one simple plot device to prop up a number of amusing bits, with the presence of the workaholic new CEO Jo compelling Michael and the staff to work later than they'd like on St. Patrick's Day. The loose structure allows the writers and characters the opportunity to deliver the type of day-in-the-life episode that's worked so well for the series in the past, and the episode makes the most of the opportunity. Plus it features David Koechner's Todd Pack…
