Review - The Office Season 6 Episode 7 The Lover

The Office delivered with a terrific episode last night. There was too much funny going on, so I'll try to cover the important things.

The main story was Pam finding out that Michael is dating her mother. She freaks out as expected which leads to tension between her and Michael. Eventually Michael has one of those meetings to discuss it. It was a great story with plenty of funny moments Michael's awkward comments to Pam confronting everyone about what they thought.

The other story was Dwight putting a wooden mallard on Jim's desk with a listening device on the bottom. Usually, Jim would be able to exploit this and make Dwight go insane. He only does this once, and when Jim tells Dwight he knows about the listening device, Dwight takes the punishment without another word. The issue seems resolved until the ending. Dwight reveals that his plan involved Jim finding the listening device from the beginning, and the real listening device was inside a pen. I just have to say that Dwight is awesome.

Stanley didn't really have any lines, but his reactions to whatever ridiculous things Michael said was priceless. One of my favorite moments was when Michael first told Jim he is dating Pam's mom. Toby walks in an Jim yells at him. Then Michael yells "Get the hell out of here, idiot." The way Steve Carell says it still makes me laugh every time I watch the scene.

Erin and Pam have some issues between them. Even though Erin has a smile on her face all the time, there are issues that need to be resolved. Pam tries to put candy on the front desk and Erin makes her get permission. While Pam knows something is wrong, she doesn't confront until she really needs to, and when that happens, it isn't pretty.

Score: 9.7/10
