Review - The Office Season 6 Episode 13 Secret Santa

“Earlier today, this office needed a Santa. And then it needed a second Santa. And then it needed a Jesus. And now, it needs a Michael." That pretty much summarizes the episode, but what was behind the episode is what made is great. It combined the whole cast, and turned an annoying story into a heartwarming one.

After Jim let's Phyllis be the Santa, Michael decides to be selfish and ruin the day for everyone until he is the lone Santa. Sometimes Michael is too much and for the first half of the episode, I absolutely hated him, which is why the satisfying conclusion was even better.

David Wallace tells Michael that Dunder-Mifflin is going to be sold and that they are cleaning house, so Michael panics and tells everyone. Then they get David Wallace back on the line and he clarifies that only the executives are getting fired, so everyone is happy now.

There were two other plots that I liked, but didn't love. Erin and Andy continued their weird dance with Andy sending her all the 12 days of Christmas from the song, which went horribly wrong as expected from all the animals in the beginning. Pam tried to set up Oscar and the gay warehouse guy, and instead, Oscar decided to play hard to get.

Favorite moments: Dwight taking a break from being evil, Angela clapping at Michael/Jesus bringing Christmas back to its original meaning, Kelly going crazy over the New Moon Poster.

Score: 9.3/10
