The Office: 6x11 - "Shareholders Meeting" - Discussion

Michael brings Dwight, Andy, and Oscar to NYC when he's to be honored at the Dunder Mifflin shareholder meeting. Jim tries to get Ryan to work.
I feel like rewatching "The Water On Mars" or playing "Call of Duty Modern Warfare"

Heh...I haven't seen it yet, but I was just thinking last night that I'd like to see a plot with Jim and Ryan now, as a turnaround from season 4 when Ryan was at Corporate and had it out for Jim, demanding better work from him. Curious to see how it plays out.

The main plot of this ep doesn't sound like anything new.

This episode was forgettable. Certainly about 10 notches down from last week.

It was worth it just to see people treat Michael the way he deserves to be treated. The man is a non-functional entity in that he's clearly mentally and socially retarded. The humor of it wore off a long time ago for me. I feel nothing but pity and shame whenever I see a scene with him now, which kinda sucks for a show that's supposed to be a comedy.

It was a bad episode all around. I don't think I laughed even once, it was just kind of sad.

The Recyclops bit and Jim moving Ryan into the storeroom was funny. Michael's usual antics were embarrassing as always.

Re: The Office: 6x11 - "Shareholders Meeting" - Discussion

I liked the Jim and Ryan interaction...although I'd have preferred to have seen Jim physically throw Ryan out of the office, except for the fact that Michael would have found a way to bring him back the next day. The other thing I liked was the look of pure glee on Michael's face when he saw the limo pull up for him.

I wish that they could have let Oscar let the corporate officers really have it...I mean, if they haven't fired Michael or Dwight yet for their antics, surely Oscar could survive reaming out the CEO, right?

As for Michael's inevitable reaction to the crowd at the meeting, frankly, that's what the corporate folks deserved. David Wallace should know him well enough at this point not to let that man ANYWHERE near a microphone, regardless of how well his branch might perform.

I'm hoping that the storeroom bit will finally start to get the others in the office to treat Jim as a real boss from this point forward...

Agreed, that was my biggest problem with the episode. Michael should not have been up on that stage. I also wish Oscar had gotten the chance to speak up and let them have it like he wanted to. I really don't understand how any of them still have jobs at this point - Michael should be totally fired for this.

I did enjoy the Jim/Ryan stuff. It is hard to take a new boss seriously sometimes when you've been working with them for years - hopefully the others will start to respect his leadership a bit more.

Other random question: is Earth Day different in the U.S.? I'm used to it being April 22...so the Recyclops open felt weird, since they just had Halloween a month ago, and have a Christmas episode coming in a few weeks. It felt out of place. Though I did like that they showed the various receptionists sitting at the desk every year. Nice little attention to detail there (though I'm not sure if the chronologies with those would line up either).

Ahh, ok. I was wondering why the peacock logo was all green.

Yep...every show made overt references to being green. Parks and Rec and The Office reserved it for their openers, but Community and 30 Rock had it throughout the episode, with 30 Rock making the biggest deal of it, including Kenneth actually looking down at the green NBC logo...

I didn't get the whole Ryan in the closet bit. Or why Ryan was fearing it.

The Recyclops was funny, but it would have been serviced better if they saved it for an April episode when Earth Day actually is (or if they eliminated the Earth Day reference all together).

Jim put Ryan in the closet where there's nothing to distract him from work and no internet after Ryan flat out refused to do anything work-related (like giving a really dumb excuses to Jim while playing Tetris). Now Ryan has to actually work at his workplace.

At least until he goes and complains to Toby.
