The first seasonof the US version of The Office showed great promise, though it needed to spread its wings. The second season has the Dunder Mifflin crew in full flight, and man, do they soar! The magic lies in the uncomfortable pauses and sidelong glances at the camera.

Best episodes include:
  • The Injury, wherein Michael Scott (Steve Carel) burns his foot on his George Foreman Grill.
  • Office Olympics has the employees competing in office-based Olympic-like events while Michael and Dwight are out of the office. Best event: Flonkerton, which involves racing with large boxes of paper strapped to the feet.
  • Casino Night, the season finale where Jim finally opens his heart to Pam.
Ten episodes have commentary by cast and crew, and as in the first season, it's worth the listen. You can tell from the commentary that Carell and company enjoy working together. Other extras include Fake PSAs and The Accountants, originally seen on the web, and more.

The Office delivers 22 episodes of quality humor and drama. Each episode builds on the last, and jokes set up in one episode pay off in future episodes. You'll find something new in each viewing, making The Office worth keeping around.
