Shirley Schmitt Gets Annoyed By Everybody
4 November 2009 | by DKosty123See all my reviews

Shirley invites everyone from the office to her place for Thanksgiving to avoid being alone with Carl. That seems to be the premise behind this episode. While it is a good episode, it gets rather stagnant and like a stage play at Shirley's house. Poole is back for his second episode & for some reason the annoying Texas lawyer is invited too.

I vote this show as having one of the worst singing sequences as three of the cast get together at the piano & prove that they can't sing a lick at one point. At least they seem to be having fun with it. For some reason I have a feeling if they had invited Betty White over to this party, it would have livened it up.

One thing that happens this show that is different, Alan is told to shut up more often than in any other episode. In a way this is Thanksgiving with the bickering & rather than be Thankful for most of the show, these folks are making major efforts to be civil to one another. Still, it is a good show, just not the best one.

It does start the bridge to the finale, which is soon to come.
