The Office 821 Review- Just Say No

Ryan- "I'd rather she be alone than with somebody. Is that love?"
The main premise of "Angry Andy" was a smart, if extremely late, idea. Get rid of the Andy Bernard we have been forced to watch in this season of The Office. He has been lame and has never very funny.

Bringing back his anger management issue was a pleasant change of pace for a character that desperately needed something different. Will this be a permanent fix for the character and/or the series? Probably not, but it worked for this half hour.

Andy from the rest of this season would have taken the beating from the conference room impotence meeting, letting it roll off his back. That wouldn't have been nearly as entertaining as watching him yell and scream, throw things and finally punish the wall in the exact same spot he did back before his first stint in anger management.

I'm not saying this was comedy gold, it was just an upgrade from the disasterous arc Andy and Erin were going through up to this point in the season.

  1. I agree. Angry Andy is way funnier than the annoying Andy who is trying to impress his dad. I like having Nellie be the manager especially after she was given a personality when we unpacked her house. Pam booing Ryan was great.
