The Office -- Season Premiere -- "Nepotism" -- 09/23/10

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Season 7 begins with Michael hiring a new office assistant (Evan Peters), whose bad attitude rubs the staffers the wrong way. Meanwhile, Erin flirts with someone other than Andy, and Pam tries to impress Jim by pulling an office prank. Kathy Bates guest stars.


Michael Scott's final hurrah begins tonight.

I know alot of you are down on the show, but it still has it's moments and I'll watch it as long as it's on the air.

This is never a priority show for me, but I enjoy watching it. If it goes too overboard on the embarrassing situations, then I turn it off.

I loved the camera panning to Ryan when they were talking about firing people who don't do work or are bad at their job. Is he still a temp?

I know, he's become such a likable guy and things never work out for him.

Though I did get a kick out of Erin thinking she had to say yes to going out on a date with Gabe because he was her boss.

Fixed. It was funny how as Michael is spanking him he's telling him he has to learn to be more professional and then the kid runs out crying.

Michael seriously considering being fired over having to have the sessions with Toby was a brilliant ending.

"Can I give you a hand?"
"Nope. Scared of getting cut in half. Also there's pee on the floor"
"Of course there is."



Glad to have the show back!

Actually thought the cold opening was kind of ridiculous, although agree about Pam looking great (as well as throughout the episode). The rest of the episode was okay, though - some good laughs.

I missed the cold open but I have the episode on DVR. I guess I'll have to go back and see it.

Creeds comments about Twitter and Betty White was the funniest part of the episode.

I wasn't a big fan of the rest of the episode. I just thought everything fell flat.

The ending was great though.
