Review - The Office Season 6 Episode 5 Mafia

Watching Michael, Dwight, and Andy deal with the "mob" was one of the funniest things that happened this season. Without Pam or Jim to reign them in, the trio wrecked havoc with their total ridiculousness. Other than that, the episode was fairly boring.

An Italian insurance agent comes in with a slightly pushy sales pitch and they immediately jump to the conclusion that the mafia here to collect money. Oscar disagrees, but as he puts it, "Pam and Jim are on their honeymoon, so there's not the usual balance between sane and others...The coalition for reason is extremely weak." They meet for lunch which leads to hilarious scenes with Andy as a mechanic. Michael signs the deal and immediately regret it. Dwight and Andy devise a plan to make Michael deal with the problem. They convince him the salesman isn't actually a mafia member, so Michael calls and cancels the agreement without trouble.

Kevin invaded Jim's office and acted stupidly again. He gets a call from the credit car company and cancels Jim's credit card. I didn't like to story since Kevin was mean and stupid in the end. There wasn't much point to the story other than a way to hear Jim and Pam over the phone.

Score: 9.0/10

You know what's weird is my DVR had "Erin ruins Pam's painting..." as part of the plot preview. I wonder what that's all about?

Yeah, it was in the official NBC synopsis. Maybe we'll see it in the deleted scene.
