SYNOPSIS

The latest season of the ultimate workplace comedy finds the employees of fictional paper company Dunder Mifflin enmeshed in surprise office hook-ups, break ups, romantic triangles and new business ventures. In a subversively funny look at corporate life, self-important, insensitive
regional manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell) still thinks he's the best boss ever—despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary! As Michael leaves the security of Dunder Mifflin and strikes out on his own, Andy (Ed Helms) and Dwight (Rainn Wilson) do battle for Angela’s (Angela Kinsey) affections, and Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) finally plan their long awaited nuptials.

What's with the 2.35:1 aspect ratio on the Blu-rays? Posted Image

That must be a mistake as I can't think of any reason to do 2.35:1. Especially since the DVDs are 1.78:1.

I hope so.

The fact that the BD MSRP is only $10 above the DVD MSRP is encouraging and makes me hopeful that the BD will be reasonably priced. This, though, will confound my kids who have regularly borrowed all my other seasons of The Office (they don't have Blu-ray).

Three-hours-plus of deleted scenes! That's Dunder-tastic! Posted Image

It's gonna be a long wait until September 8th.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!
