everything felt off the mark
16 March 2020 | by chrisaverittSee all my reviews

This one felt weird. every character just didn't act like themselves. it didn't have that same integrity the previous episodes have always had and i personally didn't find it very entertaining. here's many examples of weirdness:

  • angela licked cats and had a weirdly peppy attitude
  • pam was almost michael scott-like in this episode and lost her 'voice of reason' personality (some questionable decisions regarding michael's thing for holly)
  • jim was grumpy the whole time and wasn't cracking any jokes
  • dwight was like dwight on steroids (and slapped kelly's behind at one point for no reason and with no reprecussions)
  • michael did some somewhat uncharacteristically shady stuff regarding holly's personal privacy
  • no one chastised angela for selling andy's ring
