Review - The Office Season 6 Episode 3 The Promotion

With Pam and Jim's wedding coming up next week, there wasn't much in this episode for story or humor. There were funny moments, but nothing that really caught my attention other than Dwight trying to bring down Jim. Dwight is still an awesome character and his absurdity bridges the gap between annoyance and hilarity.

There was an expected showdown between Michael and Jim. They have a hard time deciding what to do with limited raises and Michael lets Jim take the reins hoping for a disaster. Of course, anything over money turns into a huge fight, and Jim is roundly criticized. They try a few more tactics before resorting to gin.

Pam is trying to get real money instead of gifts which doesn't go too well. There were funny moments between the supporting cast (Meredith telling Creed they slept together), but overall, this episode was missing a lot of what makes The Office great.

Score: 8.3/10
