Summer is just around the corner and NBC's golden comedy The Office packed up its fifth season weeks ago. After last Summer's highly successful Office webisodes kept laugh-addicted fans connected to their favorite series, NBC wisely decided to commission more this year. Kicking things off is the very well-done "Blackmail" starring Creed Bratton.
The Office webisodes have been clever enough to shift the focus to those supporting characters who aren't even in every episode. So far, Michael, Jim, Pam and Dwight haven't even made an appearance in any of them. Last year we got to spend some time with the accountants and it was great to see that they have their own little world, complete with power dynamics and internal dramas independent of their coworkers in sales and management. Hopefully this year's first webisode centering on Creed is an indication that we'll be getting to spend some time with the other supporting characters like Kelly, Toby and Darryl.
