Happily, The Office had a much more productive year than Michael Scott (Steve Carell), who laments to his new boss in the season finale that he has been going through a "rough patch." Reviewing his home movies, he says, "There were only 12 minutes that I felt were worth taping." Season 6 provides ample footage that Officers will want to keep on file. Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) at last get married in the season benchmark, "Niagara," an Emmy-nominated episode (director Paul Feig was robbed!) brimming with hilarious and richly satisfying mental camera "click" moments to treasure. Kathy Bates and Zach Woods are welcome additions to the company as, respectively, Joanna Bennett, the formidable and no-nonsense CEO of Sabre, which purchases the struggling Dunder Mifflin, and Gabe, her intimidated right-hand man. Darryl (Craig Robinson) gets a well-deserved promotion upstairs, Andy (an Emmy-worthy Ed Helms) and Erin (the charming Ellie Kemper) fill the will-they-or-won't-they void left by Jim and Pam with their sweet and awkward courtship that is rife with drama, and Michael is oddly pleased to learn that (spoiler alert) his new girlfriend is married. Not everything works this season. Dwight (Rainn Wilson) hatches a diabolical plan to sabotage the newly promoted Jim, but it goes nowhere, as do his nonsensical negotiations with Angela (Angela Kinsey) to conceive a child. And a clip episode ("The Banker") seems like slacking off. But there is no reprimanding the ensemble for its total investment in their characters, whom Joanna rightly calls "some of the loveliest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing." Each episode has giddy grace notes (the camera catches Creed moved to tears by an opera aria in "The Lover") and priceless bits of comic business (Pam turns Borsht Belt comedian in "Body Language," Joanna gives budding author Toby unsolicited advice on his novel in progress in "Whistleblower"). And for the first time, the season-ending cliffhanger does not involve Jim and Pam, but the series' second most beloved couple. There are two disappointing omissions from this five-disc set. The Halloween-themed cold open has been excised from the episode "Koi Pond," and the viral sensation Subtle Sexuality webisodes, including the "Male Prima Donna" music video, are not included among the bonus features. --Donald Liebenson

The setting (the office of a small branch of paper-selling company) and the stories (everyday life of the people found working in such a low-prospects jobs) seem mundane at first. And there lies the magic of the creators. For (if the endless strings of CSIs are any indication) it not hard to create good TV with car chases, gadgets and explosions. It is extremely hard to make excellent TV with only the everyday grind to work with. It seems effortless only because they made it look easy.
The brief one-way interviews each character had with the camera functioned as either prefatory summaries of stories about to unfold (building up the anticipation) or as instances of pushing back, yet never breaking, the forth wall, and, thus, making the viewing experience more personal and involving. All without the show ever loosing its step.
Producing, directing and writing will only get you so far without the right cast. And THE OFFICE enjoyed such stellar cast. Steve Carell may have risked getting typecast by creating the unforgettable character of Michael Scott but it was worth it. Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) served first as the precarious love interest and then as the familiar friends you care about and the rest of the cast was one successful pick after another.Read more ›
Other than That I didn't even bother Checking if the 4th disc worked.
Out of my whole collection of about 15 seasons of tv and over 200 movies on blu ray, this was the first that let me down.
I may have to order another...
Because this show is just that good. ;)
I did. Until season 8 came out (stay away from it).
Michael Scott is funny as ever.
Even if it's the sixth one, you don't have to see the 5 first to understand.
