S2E20: Drug Testing

It's a sad day, as Dwight K. Schrute's tenure as a Volunteer Sheriff's Deputy comes to an end. But it's a happy day for this podcast, as we look back on an episode that holds up extremely well among the strong back end of season two.

S2E19: Michael’s Birthday

Your eyes (ears) do not deceive you: Mifflinfinity has returned! After another unexpected break, Seb is finally back (still a bit croaky of voice) to discuss an episode he's been waiting to talk about pretty much since starting the podcast (so, a long time then). Come for the ice cream cake, stay for the American Pie 2 DVD...

S2E18: Take Your Daughter To Work Day

Where does Aquaman live? What year is eighth grade? Is The Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E. Frankweiler a real book? Why is Michael the way he is? We answer these questions and many more as season two hits another of its highest points.

S2E17: Dwight’s Speech

It's an episode that's fondly remembered for one particular scene, but aside from that, is Dwight's Speech a bit of a halt in the momentum of the second half of The Office's second season? We look back at an episode that's maybe just a little bit disappointing compared to those around it, although still with plenty of moments to enjoy here and there...

S2E16: Valentine’s Day

Grab a slice of authentic Italian Sbarro pizza and settle in, because this one is a classic - very possibly the best episode of The Office to date, it's a classic whose character development and plot beats will resonate through multiple seasons. And it's funny as hell, too. We go a bit long on this one, because... well, how could you not?

S2E15: Boys and Girls

We're back after another unexpected hiatus (sorry!) to talk about Pam's lifelong dreams, Jan's union-busting and a meme-inspiring shared appreciation of pizza.

S2E14: The Carpet

It's not an all-time classic of an episode, but it's still pretty important, as the real Kelly Kapoor finally arrives and we get some lovely Jim and Pam material. And some Todd Packer that nobody asked for. But just what WAS that on the carpet, anyway?

S2E13: The Secret

Well, who in the world thought this episode was going to prove to be topical in 2018? We look at Michael and Jim's trip to Hooters as well as the fallout from Booze Cruise, and a revelation about Oscar that will have heavy future repercussions...

S2E12: The Injury

The Office hits an early zenith with one of the funniest episodes not just of the show to date, but of the show full stop - and actually, of modern American comedy generally. This episode may just consist of gushing over basically every moment, you have been warned.

S2E11: Booze Cruise

It's one of the most plot-and-character-heavy, and even slightly emotional, Office episodes to date, as the gang get on a boat, Amy Adams makes her last appearance, and Jim unburdens his soul to Michael.
