Another mostly engaging, wincingly observant round. Low-key loves Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) get back on track after some bittersweet bumps, while insecure boss Michael (Steve Carell) finds a new love (Amy Ryan, sweet as can be) and starts his own paper company (a brief but hysterical subplot). Dunder-Mifflin has its duds, though: A showbiz-themed tale with cameos from Jessica Alba and Jack Black is uncharacteristically overblown. But the gag reel more than compensates! Plus: Funny meets funny when The Tonight Show’s Andy Richter chats with the cast and writers. (Universal, $60)
