The Office 6x9 - "Murder"

I do declare! Perhaps it's business-practices like buying out the Michael Scott Paper Company that's driving Dunder Mifflin into insolvency. The collapse of Dunder Mifflin has really been building since the first episode.

The Island of Misfit Toys Scranton branch handled it about as well as you'd expect. It was interesting to see Jim try to take command responsibly where Michael wanted to lead the office into a game of denial. The metaphor at the end for two parents on a boat with one trying to keep the kids from panicking was pretty good.

Overall, the murder mystery game was a little over the top for me but there was good stuff underneath, like Ryan's glasses and outfit of the week, and the confusion resulting from Andy asking Erin out. Can't help but root for the Nard Dog to get his girl.

Creed's reaction to being a "murder suspect" was the best thing on the episode.
