KOI POND | 10.29.09

It's Halloween and the Office plans a Haunted House for the kids in the community. At an important business meeting, Michael falls into a Koi Pond. Meanwhile, Pam and Andy go cold-calling to try to stir up some new business.


I mentioned on the podcast how odd it struck me that Reggie Hudlin was tapped to direct this episode, as nothing in his past experience seems to scream "The Office."  Still, he worked on THE BERNIE MAC SHOW, and so did Paul Liberstein, so maybe that's the connection.  In any case, hopefully Hudlin will bring something new to the plate.

This is billed as a "Halloween" episode, but I'm guessing it's going to be EXACTLY like last season, with only the cold open having anything to do with the holiday.  Michael falling into a pond has the potential to be as ridiculous as the "driving into a lake" plot line from season four, and once again they'll have to walk a fine line to keep the episode from being TOO ridiculous.  Here's hoping. The Pam and Andy stuff has a great deal of potential.
