The character development, humor, story line and sub-plots are what makes this show a hit.

When Steve Carell left, I cried. He was genius in this show. Watch all the seasons again over Christmas break!

This is when the season was in it's prime. I feel that it's jumped the shark these days, but it was incredible at one point, and this is it.

Hysterical! This is one of my favorite episodes. The video quality is excellent, and audio is outstanding. Michael takes the staff to the beach in an effort to identify who is most qualified to replace him as office manager, using a series of survival games. If you enjoy the "Jim and Pam" romance, this is an episode you will enjoy. All of the characters are at their best, (or worst) and it's just nonstop fun!

I bought just this episode because I teach psychology and the opening scene is Jim classically conditioning Dwight. Great episode of a great show!

5 stars for The Office, 1 star for playback options.

There are two critical flaws with Amazon Video On Demand: (1) no support for playback on an iPod or iPhone, and (2) no ability to download to a Mac.

If you use a Mac, you must watch it via streaming in your web browser (full screen is supported), which results in sometimes choppy playback. The quality is acceptable but not what you would hope for with purchased content. It seems to be even lower quality than the On Demand Movie/Video player from a certain online movie rental company.

As for the content, perfection.

I've never been the boldest of persons. And that's probably true, to be honest, of most people. Even people who have pretty assertive personalities and who seem pretty ambitious career-wise are often playing things safe, keeping to the sure and secure path. I've always thought that that is one of the things that works about The Office (at least when it's at it's best). It's about that cycle we get trapped within, where we sacrifice all of our lives at work doing something that we don't love and that doesn't make a lot of sense. And doing it with people we don't like that much and doing it for supervisors who seem to have succeeded simply by nature of their mindlessness that keeps them unaware of how absurd everything is and keeps them from threatening or questioning the people above them. The Office has always been pretty good about pointing out all of those absurdities, and sometimes the despair, and at finding little glints of grace that are potentially present anyway.

I think I fell in love with "Beach Games," in a pretty irrational way, because Pam in it shows such courage and grace. Pretty well everyone in this episode is trapped in some way, by something. Pam cannot stand up against Michael's directive to write down what everyone is doing during Beach Day. Toby cannot confront Michael's order to stay at the office during the holiday from work. Angela and Dwight are clearly in love, but they cannot declare so openly to the other members of the office. Michael cannot muster the courage to walk through the hot coals. Andy cannot get out of the lake he's fallen into. All of them are caught up in the absurd workplace situation with Michael as boss.
