For several years, The Office was easily the funniest and best written comedy on television. Its hard to pinpoint which season is the pinnacle of the series, it may be a tie between seasons 2, 3, 4, and 5. Every one of them is tremendous. Considering season one was barely half of a season, The Office was still fairly young heading into its 6th year, so it was reasonable for fans to expect the same level of high quality comedy we'd been enjoying since the show's inception. Tragically this isn't exactly the case with #6. The season begins with a very promising start that maintains both the energy and the quality of the previous seasons. In fact the entire first half of the season is, for the most part, very well done... but eventually season six dissolves into a mix of mediocre and sometimes, painfully bad episodes (the finale being one of the worst eps in series history).

The biggest problem of season 6 is the massive story arcs. Now, multiple episode storylines have always been a strong point for this series; whether it was the Dwight and Angela affair in seasons 2-5 or the Michael Scott Paper Company in season 5, reccuring plots on The Office were always successful. This is also mostly the case in season 6; the problem is that the show ultimately becomes so reliant on large story arcs that they eventually lose sight of what the foundation of The Office's success had always been: great characters and great comedy. There is a glaringly obvious shortage of stand alone episodes. No matter how many reccuring storylines there were in previous years there was always a large number of classic stand alone episodes (naturally revolving around the hysterical antics of Michael Scott).

I think this season is the epitome of hit-or-miss. It seemed like every other episode was either filler or just poorly written. Also, I frequently felt the deleted scenes should've stayed in instead of much of the kept scenes. While this show doesn't have much consistancy in general this season is particularly bad in this area where it seemed almost nothing had any effect in later eps. Don't get me wrong, this season definitely had its moments, but they were few and far between. Many of the jokes were more for shock-value instead of actual humor and Jim & Pam are just plain boring now. The show is still great, but with only about 50% of the eps being good this season (at best) it is clear the show is losing some steam, which is a turning point few shows fully recover from. If you're a big-time fan of the show then I would of course recommend getting this season, but if you're only interested in Jim & Pam's wedding, or some other event that takes place in an ep or two, then just download it/them.

I just want to express how ripped off I feel that after buying the entire season 6 of The Office the Halloween open is missing from the episode Koi Pond. I hope that NBC and the creators/actors of The Office read this and realize how they are making their fans feel ripped off. If they were going to remove it from the episode, they should have included it in the deleted scenes. To make matters worse they included a still pic on the menu of Disc 2 just to remind us what we're missing. I tried to see if maybe it was hidden as an Easter Egg but have had no luck. Perhaps if everyone expressed how disappointed they were, Universal will create replacement discs. We are paying for the ENTIRE season of The Office including DELETED and BONUS material. I hate it when organizations complain and get "offended" by things thereby making it impossible for everyone else in the world to enjoy it. I don't care if the American Society for Suicide Prevention was offended by a FICTIONAL character making an inappropriate joke. Newsflash: the Michael Scott character's main purpose on the show is to make inappropriate jokes. It's almost like they were just sitting around waiting to find something to be offended by so they could shove their cause down everyone's throat. Seriously, if someone were actually going to kill themselves they would do it regardless of if they saw an episode of The Office or not. And don't try to say someone might see it and then decide to kill themselves. That's just stupid. If by any means that were true, it would be a Darwin Award. Why not stop there then? Why not omit all the Erin scenes where she says she's been in foster care because that might be offensive to people who were in foster care?Read more ›

In reviewing the sixth season of "The Office", there is good news and bad news: On the positive side, the season gave us such landmark episodes as "Niagara Falls" (Jim/Pam wedding) and "The Arrival" (Jim/Pam baby), easily in the top echelon of episodes in show history. On the flip side, though, the show also went through two separate little dry patches that produced some episodes that just didn't measure up well against earlier efforts.

The theme of "change" runs at the core of the entire season. At the beginning, Dunder-Mifflin employees worry about the long-term stability of their company, then (about half way through the season), the company is actually bought out by Sabre, a printer company headed by Jo Bennett (guest star Kathy Bates), with the crew having to adjust to their new ownership. On a more personal level, the Jim/Pam relationship moves from one of flirtation & fun to more real-life undertones (marriage, parenting, etc.), while two characters (Andy Bernard and new receptionist Erin) become smitten with each other...only to provide some of the most awkwardly hilarious conversations/situations in show history!

In terms of acting, the sixth season was on par with the previous installments. Steve Carrell as Michael Scott is still the glue that binds everything together, and the supporting cast keeps turning in hilarious performances when called upon. The introduction of the Andy/Erin romance was a breath of fresh air for the show, as its innocence harkens back to the early Jim/Pam seasons, but due to Andy's total and absolute goofiness, it takes forever (but in a good way!) for things to really get off the ground.
