The Office Season 8 DVD


Release date: September 4, 2012

Synopsis: Andy takes over as manager of Dunder Mifflin and finds the job to be more than he bargained for. He wants to win the respect of his employees, while going toe-to-toe with Robert California, the enigmatic new CEO, who wants to turn the office into his personal playground. Dwight makes his own grab for power when he leads a team to Florida to work under Nellie Bertram, who may be slightly out of her mind. Jim and Pam’s relationship is put to the test when Pam goes on maternity leave and her replacement has eyes for Jim. Meanwhile, Erin harbors lingering feelings for Andy; Angela’s relationship deepens with her dashing (state) senator; and Darryl looks for love in the warehouse. Developed for American Television by Primetime Emmy┬« Award winner Greg Daniels (Parks and Recreation, The Simpsons), watch all 24 episodes back-to-back in this 5-disc set, with outstanding bonus features including extended episodes, deleted scenes, webisodes, Football Championship promos and more!

P.S. This post will eventually contain all the information you need to know about The Office Season 8 DVDs, just like The Office Season 7 DVD Buying Guide from last year.

    Have to agree about the bedbug comment. When you see them break out laughing as they try to act that out, you realize just how ridiculous those lines were. Definitely one of the most memorable parts of the gag reel.

    I don’t know about you guys but I loved season 8 for the most part. I’m not the normal Office fan though, I actually loved Robert California and Gabe, I didn’t loathe Nelly to the same level as others. She wasn’t essential, but I still laughed…if you want to know who I truly hated, it was Charles Minor. And think Andy is a great boss. Don’t see the Michael Scott Jr. criticism, he is still very much Andy.

    I bought the DVDs the day they came out. Gag Reel is actually still very funny. The lack of commentaries make me wish I had netflix instead.

    John Krasinski imitating the Bedbug was the best part of the gag reel for sure.

    Tanster,I always look forward to tidbits you share with us the weekend before the release. Anything this season you want to share?


  8. 28. Daniel  

    Any news on the bonus features yet?


  9. 27. Peter  

    The extended episodes will be for Angry Andy as well as Fundraiser.


  10. 26. Sarakaya Komzin  

    Still no news on the bonus features? It comes out in less than a month…


  11. 25. Jim and Pam Fan  

    I do like the way they show the whole ensemble cast on this DVD cover. However, I have to agree that that they did a poor Photoshop job, especially with Nellie and Jim/Pam.

    Seems like they’ve just thrown everyone in to fill in the void that used to be Steve ~tear~

    @MichaelScottOnFacebook(#21)..If you go to the Season 7 DVD buying guide the cast did a shoot for a limited edition Georges Seurat bonus poster that was included inside Season 7 DVDs and the cast has on the same outfits in this poster as in this Season 8 photo shopped cover.

    Now of course, once again, everyone goes crazy about the DVD cover. It’s a DVD cover.

    But, of course, once again, this is not the finished cover. Check out Amazon:

    The Office: Season Eight

    Not sure if the shady is perfect for some of you…
    But i sure love it!

    I really love this cover, to be quite honest. Photoshopped it may be, but it really shows the full ensemble cast and how lovely the show is when the whole cast is involved.
    @Lori M.-Actually, the last photoshoot that the show had since Season 8 was season 5, and Toby was much heavier.

    I personally liked the Season 5 cover the best.

    I was reading about the season 8 Blu-Ray release, and it sounds like they’re using flipper discs. One side will be the Blu versions, the other side DVD. I think this will be the first season I won’t purchase, as it probably means they’re sacrificing picture quality so they can squeeze in the DVD without extra discs. However, specs haven’t been released (25GB-50GB disc, etc) so I might be wrong.

    The DVD covers have always been cheap, tacky photoshop, and I had zero expectations that S8’s would be different. This one is the worst of all, it’s way too cluttered and much as some might not like to admit it, NBC PR included, there are very clear stars of this show (Rainn, Ed, Jenna, John) with a large secondary cast making up the ensemble.


  18. 18. Gobias Industries  

    I love that Robert California is not overly prominent


  19. 17. Paul  

    Wait.. Wait! WAIT! No commentaries??

    Haven’t ALL of the DVD covers been badly photoshopped?
