S3E05: Initiation

Seb is left floored by the last few minutes of this episode, as one of the greatest ever Jim and Pam scenes pops up out of nowhere. As for the rest of it, it's an entertaining romp, with some great Stamford material (for once!) but a couple of scenes that history has unfortunately made it more difficult to look back on...

S3E04: Grief Counseling

It's maybe the weakest episode of Season 3, although Pam gets some sterling work to do and Steve Carell turns it up to 11. Stamford, meanwhile, feels like it could be cut out of the show altogether. Seb is slightly underwhelmed, but still finds plenty to enjoy, in the latest episode!

S3E03: The Coup

An episode that has thoroughly forgettable B- and C-plots still manages to be one of the absolute highlights of the show so far, thanks to an utterly phenomenal lead story and some of Steve Carell and Rainn Wilson's best ever work.

S3E02: The Convention

Season three moves quickly to put Michael, Jim and Dwight back in the same room - with extremely enjoyable results. Elsewhere, Pam goes on her first date since breaking up with Roy... but it's not with Toby, sadly for him. Is this where the third season really gets started?

S3E01: Gay Witch Hunt

Mifflinfinity is back! And no, we weren't driven into hiding by the success of Office Ladies, it's just a coincidence. Join Seb to look at the slightly inauspicious beginning to what is probably The Office's best season (unless season four is).

S2E22: Casino Night

It's taken us a bit longer than we would have liked, but we're finally here, with the finale of The Office's second season. It's a longer than usual episode of both the show and the podcast, as Seb explores the massive events wrought by the casino night in the warehouse - and there's also a bit of a look back on season two generally before we head in to the third.

S2E21: Conflict Resolution

We approach the end of season two with an episode that shows just how frayed the relationships at Dunder Mifflin Scranton have become - and just how in need of a shakeup everything is. Join Seb for a look back at an episode that's both funny and unsettling in equal measure...

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.
