  1. Woo! Bring it on! I think Here Comes Treble/Vandalism/The Farm should be the first three off…

  2. I loved Lice – thought this was the episode that should win Jenna an Emmy (and spawned the many wigs of Meredith – how could I not love that!). Save Lice! Save Lice! (why does that sound wrong – my school nurse would so not approve…)

    We might have a pretty good idea of what will win #1, but I think the other spots will be interesting. Especially the episodes in the first half of the season.

  3. Ranking these made me realize how great this season was (at least compared to 6 and 8, for sure). So many episodes that I really, really enjoyed! Unlike last year, I love (or at least strongly like) all of the episodes up until number 18!

  4. Ok, I’m studying all the old episodes. Gotta take this seriously since it’s the last one :(

  5. I enjoyed Lice too! Voted for “The Farm”. Thought it could’ve been a good/promising show, but the episode as an Office episode was a bit slow compared to the rest.

  6. I have to disagree with #1 about Here Comes Treble since it features the long awaited debut of Broccoli Rob. One of the middle-ish episodes that were mainly about the drama, those need to go.

  7. Vandalism will definitely be the first to be voted off. But I’d like to point out how bad the first episode was. I mean, Kevin with the turtle thing, Kevin wanted to eat a cat, Dwight vomited on Angela, Dwight did a stupid stunt from rooftop, etc. And spoiler alert: The winner for S9 Survivor Poll is the Finale.

  8. How can anyone say that ‘Lice’ is the worst episode? #9 makes a good point about New Guys being weak – luckily the rest of the season did not reflect the first episode.

  9. This survivor is going to be very black and white. The strong was strong and the weak was weak, the middle votes are going to be the only exciting ones, the rest is a wash lol

  10. I voted for Roy’s Wedding – it just wasn’t my favourite. I liked Vandalism for the Pam/Dwight interaction.

  11. It’s inevitable that Finale will take the #1 spot, so I think positions 2-6 should go (not necessarily in order)

    Livin’ The Dream
    Dwight Christmas
    The Whale

  12. Work Bus is top 5 for me but I see it being middle of the road for everyone else. I say Farm goes first though.

  13. Am I the only one who found Here Comes Treble entertaining? Granted, Dwight taking the anxiety med at the end was kinda weird and out of character, but there were a lot of solid moments (Dwight eating “Jims” on the couch, Pam being serenaded during the fight with Jim, Toby falling in love with himself, anything with Clark, everything with Andy and Broccoli Rob was juvenile and pathetic–which is completely in-character and hilarious, etc.).

    Not the best episode of the season, but definitely not in the bottom tier.

  14. I hated lice. Not the worst episode of the season but it was awful. The thing that really really just pissed me off and genuinely made me mad was the bug bomb that Dwight set off. I saw how extremely fake it was in the promo and thought, oh it will be more realistic in the episode. Then I saw the episode and how fake the smoke was and I was furious. This show is supposed to be real and the poor special effects made me mad. I understand that occasionally special effects are necessary but it was not needed for a cheap gag.

  15. @Safety Training Work Bus is top 10 for me, so it might get up there.

    I voted for Here Comes Treble, which is probably a bad choice since I don’t really remember it too well, but I do remember not enjoying it as much as the others (that is, usually I remember when I disagree with all the negative flack).

    Also, I very much like Vandalism. Kevin telling off the Senator for being a terrible person? And come on, Pam and Dwight moment at the end? Pam and Dwight are adorable! Sure, maybe it wasn’t the funniest, but I don’t just watch this show for the comedy.

  16. I want to throw in my ranking of this season’s episodes for my future reference and for others’ perusal, with some commentary:

    1. Episode 24-25, Finale
    2. Ep 22-23, A.A.R.M.
    3. Ep 4, Work Bus – The only very good episode from early in the season
    4. Ep 21, Livin’ the Dream – Should have been extended to 45 minutes or so, not an hour
    5. Ep 19, Stairmaggedon
    6. Ep 18, Promos
    7. Ep 16, Moving On – I actually loved this one, despite its seemingly erratic plotting
    8. Ep 12, Customer Loyalty – Ranked high for the realism, not the humor
    9. Ep 9, Dwight Christmas
    10. Ep 10, Lice
    11. Ep 1, New Guys
    12. Ep 8, The Target
    13. Ep 7, The Whale
    14. Ep 13, Junior Salesman
    15. Ep 11, Suit Warehouse
    16. Ep 6, The Boat
    17. Ep 3, Andy’s Ancestry
    18. Ep 17, The Farm – Not as bad as some say, but still toward the lower end of my ranking
    19. Ep 20, Paper Airplane
    20. Ep 15, Couples Discount
    21. Ep 2, Roy’s Wedding
    22. Ep 14, Vandalism
    23. Ep 5, Here Comes Treble – terrible use of the best guest star the Office ever had

  17. Worst episode? The Farm, not only for its lack of funny, but also because it forced Dwight to act out of character to fit his possible departure at mid-season.
