The Office: Episode 44 – Business School

  • The Writer – Brent Forrester
  • Director – Joss Whedon
  • A brief synopsis – Michael is a guest speaker at Ryan’s class in Business School.  Dwight finds a bat in the office and creates a panic.  Jim takes advantage of this by pretending to be bitten and indicating that he might be becoming a vampire.  Pam is trying to get people to come to her art show.
  • The best line – Angela: Poop is raining from the ceilings. Poop!
  • The best moment – Michael shows up at Pam’s show and is genuinely impressed.
  • The best storyline – Pam’s art show shows the lonely road artists must travel when others choose to act like they care…and don’t.
  • Notable guest appearance – An actual bat makes a show.  And a bunch of real college students.
  • Would Michael have been reprimanded? – Not here, although, the speech at the school would have never happened in life.
  • Grade – B-

Another good episode nearly ruined by Michael unleashed on a crowd.  They should know by now that the shtick isn’t working and concentrate on toning it down or just making it better.  Like the scene where Michael truly inspires a Pam who is desperately in need of inspiration.  The scenes in the office, with the bat are just swell, especially Jim, Creed, Angela, Dwight and Meredith.
