'The Office' Season 6, Episode 21 - 'Happy Hour' Recap

If you took this episode and dropped it in the middle of season two or three, it probably would have fit in nicely. Well, except for the fact that you might be asking why Pam was on maternity leave (and why Jim is the dad), why Andy is working in Scranton, and just who the hell Erin is.

But you know what I'm getting at. The tone, pacing, and comedy of this episode continues the recent trend of 'The Office' getting back to what made people love it to begin with. And, yes, part of that means that Michael is going to make an ass of himself. But at least the season six version of Michael somehow gets a little bit of hope mixed in with his desperation stew.

Sure, the reason why the happy hour was held was a flimsy one at best; Oscar's been pining away for warehouse worker Matt since Christmas and uses this as an excuse to get together. However, it did give us a chance to hear Darryl utter one of my favorite lines of the night: "You can be gay with Matt. Just be straight with me." Boy, I love having Craig Robinson on the show more often. Makes me want to run out and see 'Hot Tub Time Machine,' no matter how good or bad it is. More on Oscar in a bit.
