This was an actual good episode of The Office, and a vast improvement over the last two episodes and season six in general. Right? Are we just happy about it because we like Sweeney Todd? We like The Office’s mean and snarky side, but we also like to see its joyful, sweet side.
Andy was starring as Anthony in a local production of the musical. He and his castmates burst into Dunder Mifflin singing “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.” Andy’s goal? To win Erin back from Gabe, because Andy has a theory that women cannot resist a man singing show tunes. “It’s so powerful, a lot of men can’t resist a man sensing show tunes.” Andy invited everyone in the office to the musical, mostly hoping Erin would come. Erin ended up babysitting for Jim and Pam so that they could go, but she showed up with the baby in the middle of the performance. In the end, Erin and Andy hung out, but she went back to Gabe afterward. Sad.
Dwight and Angela were still carrying out their weird, hilarious birthing contract. Angela is clearly trying to win Dwight back with sex, and from the end of the episode, it looks like it might work. We are glad. They were a great couple.
We liked that everyone went to Andy’s play, and they all liked it, even though Michael was jealous of the leading man. Beef: We don’t like Erin. She’s cute, but she’s a dud. We already had a sweet girl. (It used to be) Pam. Erin is also really really stupid. We also have a stupid girl. It’s still Kelly, even though Kelly thinks she is smart now. While we hope she and Gabe leave the show and are replaced by someone who can bring some hilarity and good plotlines to the show, we also want Andy to be happy. Conundrum. But still, time spent on Erin is not time well-spent.
