After this episode of The Office, there is only one left to run due to the WGA strike. You know all the episodes you watched online and on iTunes? The writers of the show get paid zero dollars for all of that. That is simply absurd.
The plot for this episode of The Office centers aroudn Michael not being invited on Ryanâ€™s camping trip. Toby, Michaelâ€™s point of focus for all anger, was invited. And now, Michael is going to find someway to make his own camping thinger.
Michael will actually be trying to survive by himself for a couple days. And with that framework, let the funny begin.
Did I make it clear enough that we should be supporting the striking writers? Because we should.
Dwight is fake abducting Michael, so Michael can feel like he is really stranded.
The office related humor for this episode comes from a month of birthdays. Kelly, Creed, Oscar, and Meredith all have their birthdays this month. Jim, put in charge during Michael’s adventure, thinks consolidating the birthdays into one big party would be the best idea. It is not easy. And funny conflicts happen.
Were you aware that the actors and directors donâ€™t get paid when their shows are run online either? Theyâ€™ll be striking too when their union contracts are up, unless things change. If the writers win, that will make further strikes and TV stoppage unnecessary.
Creed wanted a birthday peach cobbler. Michael, gone for less than a day, was back just in time for the end of the birthday debacle.
So in conclusion, support the writers! And enjoy the last Office that is in the can next week!
