The Office: Season Eight Blu-ray

Posted June 20, 2012 09:46 AM by Josh Katz

Universal 100thUniversal Studios Home Entertainment will bring The Office: Season Eight to Blu-ray this September. This year of the popular NBC television show focuses on Dunder Mifflin's attempts to find leadership after the Season Seven departure of branch manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell, The 40-Year-Old Virgin).

From Universal's official synopsis:

"Andy (Ed Helms, The Hangover) has taken over as manager and he will stop at nothing to win the affection of the Dunder Mifflin staff. Outrageous antics ensue as he works to balance the respect of his employees while going toe-to-toe with Robert California (James Spader, Secretary), the enigmatic new CEO. Dwight (Rainn Wilson, Super) makes his own grab for power when he leads a team to Florida to work under Nellie Bertram (Catherine Tate, Dr. Who), who may be slightly out of her mind. [The relationship of] Jim (John Krasinski, Big Miracle) and Pam (Jenna Fischer, A Little Help)...is put to the test when Pam goes on maternity leave and her replacement has eyes for Jim."

Universal's five-disc Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack features all 24 Season Seven episodes; each is presented in its broadcast aspect ratio of 1.78:1 with 5.1 English DTS-HD Master Audio tracks.

Note: This is a flipper combo pack, with a Blu-ray version on one side of each disc and a DVD version on the other side.

The season collection also includes a number of special features, such as:
  • Extended producers' cuts of "Fundraiser" and "Angry Andy"
  • Exclusive Office promos for the XLVI Football Championship
  • Over 100 minutes of deleted scenes
  • Blooper reel
  • The Office webisodes starring Mindy Kaling and Ellie Kemper
The Office: Season Eight streets on September 4th.

Terrible season.

No buy from me.

I'll wait until the show ends before deciding whether I want to purchase this and any of the remaining seasons. Just wasn't a strong season overall, although I felt it did improve in the last half. The finale was a disappointment though.

After watching the season a 2nd time, I felt that it was actually pretty good. As good as it could have been considering. Hated it the first time through, so I recommend giving it another shot

Flipper discs sucks. It's was easily to scratched the Blu-ray version on one side of each disc and a DVD version on the other side. Season Eight owners can access Season Nine episodes via BD-Live as they air this fall on NBC with your Blu-ray Player or PS3 with internet.* The season 8 promo is on September 22, 2011. The Blu-ray is Region FREE when the DVD is Region 1.

* Because Blu-ray is a Hi-Def format, all features may not play on every Blu-ray device or PS3. Availability of network features subject to change without notice. BD-Live and/or Pocket BLU app requires network connection and/or may not play on every device. Check with your manufacturing specifications and update for the latest firmware to maximize playability. Pocket BLU requires the same network for your Blu-ray player or PS3 and iOS 3.2 or Android OS:1.6. Don't know for more devices.

I can't believe that studios still think flipper discs are a good idea. I read a few reviews on Amazon concerning Louie's first season flipper discs not playing in a PS3, so I guess I'm going to have to stream this too.

Horrible season. There were a few decent episodes halfway through where some of the office staff went down to Florida, but the rest were dreadful. They couldn't even find a coherent way to write James Spader out of the show.

"This year [...] focuses on Dunder Mifflin's attempts to find leadership after the Season Seven departure of branch manager Michael Scott." No, it doesn't. They did that at the end of season 7. Season 8 starts with the new leadership already in place.

But anyway, I enjoyed this season way more than I expected to. Spader was great and Ed Helms worked well enough in Carell's spot. That said, it's the first season that I won't be buying. I refuse to support flipper discs. It's that simple.

I'm with Bill. Parks & Rec on Blu-ray would be a must-buy for me! The Office ended with Season 7, as far as I'm concerned, and the only news I'm interested in is Seasons 1-4 (especially 2 & 3!) coming to Blu-ray. If/When that happens, hopefully Universal will have wised up and abandoned the flipper discs, like 20th Century did with Louie S2.

The show was already going down the tubes at the end with Steve Carell...then without Michael Scott the show was just plain bad in most episodes.

Will wait for a sale price, this season seemed forced and I wonder if it will last past next season.

IMO, the show was over after season four. I tried and tried to watch a few episodes of season five but they weren't funny at all!
I LOVE seasons 1-4 though.

What's with the really bad photoshop on the cover?

I enjoyed the season, but it was definitely the weakest. The show does miss Steve Carell!
