The Office: Season Eight
This show’s first season without Steve Carell is a pretty shaky one. Frankly, it’s hard to keep things fresh in the eighth season of anything. Dunder-Mifflin does pull through, however, with some pretty funny moments, as well as regular appearances by James Spader and Doctor Who’s Catherine Tate.
The 5-disc set has a 1.78:1 aspect ratio that’s a nice little jump from NBC’s broadcast, and has a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 to match. Don’t expect to see Carell in the extras, either; the set includes bloopers and deleted scenes, webisodes, a few promos, and the UltraViolet Digital Copy. Also worth noting is that all five discs are flippers, with the standard-def DVD available on the opposite side of every Blu-ray.
