‘The Office’ Comes Back, Five Looong Months Later

Are Michael and Jan going to break up? Will Pam and Jim stop being so damned gooey? Who cares? We just want to see the Schrutes play Ping-Pong. The Office returns tonight — it has been nearly five months since a new episode — with its specialty: something boring we all deal with on a regular basis (a dinner party) transformed into something gloriously awkward yet, as always, oddly sweet. Maybe Dwight will kill another cat.
