The Office- Sex Ed review and recap

There were so many missed opportunities in this episode, particularly in the Sex Ed portion of it. We liked Michael’s trek through his ex lovers and his touching message to Holly, the only one he really loved, at the end of the episode. But why would The Office have Andy, a grating, unfunny character the show is trying to make us root for, teach the office workers a sex ed class? Would it not have been so much funnier to have Dwight do it? Well, what should we expect, since this episode was written and directed by the man who plays Toby. Toby is the worst. No, Andy is the worst. The funniest Andy ever was is in the episode where Jim hides his cell phone and Andy freaks out. It's funny to laugh AT Andy, not with him. He needs to go back to being a jerk who always talks about Cornell, not a sympathetic doofus. We have Michael for that.

Michael and Dwight
We loved the opening with Dwight’s personal Mose-run INS organization, and we laughed at the poor guy Dwight hired to get rid of a hornets’ nest near the office. The outrageous weapons Dwight provided the man with included a bow and arrows, a bat, and a blowtorch. That did not go well. But it’s “do or die,” according to Dwight. Literally. The drama started when Michael had what Meredith was sure was a cold sore on his face, although Dwight had a sound theory that it might just have been an ingrown moustache hair. With Dwight’s assistance, Michael tracked down Holly (on the phone), Jan, Pam’s Mom, Oscar (with whom he shared a kiss in season three), Debbi, and Carol (who is Steve Carell’s real-life wife). On the phone, Holly told Michael that their relationship was just a fun fling that he romanticized. Upon reconnecting with all his old flings, Michael realized that Holly was wrong. He felt the most for her, and he called her and left her a message telling her that. Hilariously, he ended it with, “You might want to see a doctor, because you might have herpes.”

Sex ed by Andy
Meredith’s admission that she has genital herpes (no surprise there) caused some office members (Angela) to shun her. Andy decided to make a sex ed class for the office to get the office to tolerate Meredith. No, really he was just trying to see if Erin and Gabe were having sex. When he realized they were, Andy flipped, which was pretty funny.

Further Comments
Jan’s kid is cute, in an Olsen kind of way. Why does Jan sing like a nightclub singer to her child? We hated Jims combed-to-the-side hair this episode. Maybe the hair is what was making him look so old and puffy. Finally, Carol stated that Michael proposed to her on their fourth date. It was actually their ninth date. Is the show so far from the good seasons that it is starting to forget them?

Episode Grade: C

Watch it here:


  1. Ugh, this episode made me cringe many, many times. I always hated Jan. Far more deeply than I ever hated April Kepner. She is SO AWKWARD. James has to leave the room whenever Michael Scott starts acting weird, and I have to leave the room whenever Jan is on the screen. I just can't stand her. I think if I were ever around someone in real life that acted that way, I would probably smack them.

    I still hope Michael and Holly end up together.

    The whole episode was awkward and uncomfortable and I barely got through it. I guess some people like that kind of humor, but not me. I really miss the good office pranks.

    And I still think you are too hard on Andy. I like him, even though he was a total doofus in this episode.

  2. YES. What happened to the pranks? People messing with each other was the heart and soul of this show. Totally agree about Jan, but we hate Andy more. We guess everyone has their office character that makes them leave the room.
