The Office Recap: Problem Dogs

"Fundraiser" is another episode where we are asked to believe that the entire office goes to every single social event together. This is fine, of course, as different backdrops and scenarios are necessary in a long-running show. But it is amusing that no one ever has something better to do — like hang out with their children — than go to whatever garden party/trivia night/sex mansion they get invited to. The bulk of this episode took place at a fund-raiser Angela and her husband are throwing for some awfully cute puppies. ("Our love for them confounds reasons," Robert California states correctly.) This set-up mainly seems to exist to get Andy and the rest of his former co-workers, along with the who’s who of District 26, in the same room long enough to witness his breakdown.

The Office Review: Guess That Price

It has been four episodes now since the super team returned from Florida, and The Office still hasn't found its footing back in Scranton.  " Fundraiser " had some humorous moments, sure, but it was certainly a continuation of the less than spectacular installments we have witnessed as of late.

The Office “Fundraiser” Review

The cold open for tonight’s episode of  The Office , "Fundraiser," let Ryan’s pretentiousness run wild as he expressed his devastation over the loss of Smokey Robinson. We’ve all known someone who has been duped by rumors of an unexpected celebrity death, but what made this opening particularly funny was the way Ryan reacted to the news. Ryan had to point out that he was the first to know about the death and, even more importantly, he needed everyone to know how big of a fan he was. Of course, a quick internet search put the death hoax to rest, but Ryan would never let his pride take that kind of hit. He quickly squirmed his way out of going to the Smokey Robinson concert by ranting about parking prices and Paul Anka. Read More... //www.tvequals.com/2012/04/27/the-office-fundraiser-review/
