I rather liked this episode. I only really laughed at Creed's end monlogue about the "circus" and a couple lines about Angela's cats and Kevin's turtle, but the weird sense of desperation I was getting from the show last season was gone. They seemed confident and ready to take their characters seriously again. Nellie's reduced to a role where she might actually be well-used, Jim has an actual storyline again (and one that actually, in this episode, made some good use of Krasinki's talents), Dwight isn't a father, and I feel like I could easily come to like the new guys. Good signs.
Two new, young employees throw Dwight and Jim off balance; Andy returns from leadership training with a desire for revenge.
ETA: Oh, hell, got the airdate wrong. Sorry. Would fix it if I could.
