Extras: This double disc devoted an entire disc to extras, the most unique for an adult project being the iPod compatible download version of the movie for those so equipped.  The first disc was high definition but the second was merely a direct SD version like with the regular release (likely to save money).  There were also some desktop wallpapers on this DVD-ROM segment of the disc for those who care. Many of you will enjoy the 34:57 minute long bonus scene from My Fantasy Girls (this being the secretary scene starring Mikayla Mendez and Mike Adriano. It was a standard scene with oral and vaginal sex but worth the "free" status regardless. The 12:01 minute Behind the Scenes was kind of fun too as was the 7:42 minute Blooper Reel. Then came 16:30 minutes of interviews with the performers (Ashlynn Brooke, Alexis Texas, Stephanie Swift, and Codi Carmichael), some trailers, a photogallery and the set was all covered in a slipcase.

Audio/Video Quality: The Office: A XXX Parody(Blu-ray) was presented in a sharp looking 1.78:1 widescreen picture as shot by director Lee Roy Myers for New Sensations using the MPEG-2 codec with 1080i resolution in this high definition version. I was surprised the codec wasn't one of the more advanced ones used for HD productions but this only made the picture a very marginal upgrade.  It looked much like the mediocre television show in some ways if you don't look too closely, the flat lighting helping to minimize the grain and video noise in most scenes. There were few compression artifacts that I noticed and the video bitrate seemed to hover around the 15.4 Mbps mark, the fluid camerawork coming across like the show too. The use of the camera as the fourth wall (the characters talk to the audience) was a nice touch too, helping elevate the technical aspects a bit in terms of the parody impact. The company logo was always present in the lower right hand corner if that bothers you, I know it kills a show for many. The audio was presented in a standard 2.0 Dolby Digital English with a 192 Kbps bitrate and 48 kHz sampling rate, no separation between the channels, a limited dynamic range, and music from the archival vaults except for the one piece that just didn't work for me. I will give credit for overall presentation though as the show was not far off in several minor ways from the American version of the television show.

Alexis Texas and Ashlynn Brooke

Body of Review: New Sensations is currently best known as a production company that releases tons of compilations, mining the heck out of their expansive back catalog titles for various series all designed to cater to narrow market niches of consumers. What some people do not know is that the company still shoots new scenes, albeit not as many of them these days and occasionally comes up with a gem. The latest such title is a comedy called The Office: A XXX Parody Blu-ray. Following the television sitcum craze started mainly by the folks at X-Play with their lines of popular parodies, New Sensation came up with a moderately amusing version of the series by the same name (which was derived from a British show of much higher quality, if drier wit). I'm not an expert of the show or its allure to younger audiences, most of the times I watched it I felt that the writers need an extended vacation to brush up on their joke writing skills, but now pornified by New Sensations, it comes in as an amusing enough take on the show that will help you last until the next good comedy porn rolls off the presses. The back cover described it like this: "When the cameras enter the offices of Dinder Muffin, it's up to "World's Bust Boss", Michelle (Ashlynn Brooke), to make sure that the hard drives are hard and the water cooler is wet. That's why she's not only the boss, she's the employee of the month! It's the must see XXX TV parody of the year, when a huge all star cast (that's what she said!) stars in New Sensations' hilarious hump-fest, The Office: A XXX Parody. The splooge and jokes fly with Ashlynn Brooke, Jenna Haze, Stephanie Swift, Alexis Texas, Gianna Michaels, Faye Reagan, Dahlia Denyle, Codi Carmichael, James Deen, Dane Cross, Ralph Long, Rocco Reed, and Mark Wood. When Michelle (Ashlynn Brooke) is caught with her foot in her mouth, her boss, Jen (Stephanie Swift) swiftly replaces it with her dripping wet pussy and forces Michelle to teach the employees about sexual harassment first hand! Today, the employees of Dinder Muffin will experience data entry, overhead, accunting, and dicktation like they've never experienced before! This is one office where nobody gets laid off but they all get laid!" Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:

Scene One: Jenna Haze, arguably the most popular gal in porn at this writing (as seen on the lower right hand portion of the front cover), was up first with super salesman James Deen, the couple in the copy room to consummate a physical yearning for one another. He ate her biscuit and ass and she rewarded him with a fine hummer, the couple pounding away at each other vaginally with both showing some enthusiasm. This was a middle of the road scene for Jenna though, the gal able to really crank up the heat when she wants so a bit of chemistry with a guy that might merit a higher grade for a lesser performer is about average for her. The choppy editing was another issue but not as bad in some of the later scenes so drink a few extras beers and you won't notice as much. The ending had her closing her eyes and opening her mouth for James to jerk off his genetic juice towards, Jenna's post coital sucking helping make it watchable.

Scene Two: Stephanie Swift, a popular former contract performer for Wicked Pictures (upper left hand corner), was up next as the uptight boss upset over a claim of harassment filed against hotty Ashlynn Brooke, the sexy blond featured on the center of the cover. The two enjoyed some lesbian action together on the desk, the cunnilingus leading to toy play with a strap on dildo after a rabbit vibrator was used. The two seemed to be too mechanical in how they approached the action here, weakening the scene for me (and I like both of them just fine) but at least giving some needed action to the movie.

Scene Three: Codi Carmichael, a curvy blond with a cute face, was up next in the break room with goofy Dane Cross. She looked like she was part of a father/daughter day or internship but the clothing was off her frame in record time, her tig old bitties freed from the confines of her shirt as she masturbated, Dane orally working them before she turned her attention to his cock. She sucked his modest member as though he were bigger than Cody Bangs but it was an easy task given the size, the bleach blond gal going into porn overdrive when it came time to vaginally fuck; her screams not in line with his minimal girth at all. Most of the time, she was a passive rider too so she never lived up to her potential, the PTM and other oral easily her best attributes. The scene ended when he jerked off to her tits and she sucked him off one last time, her grin reminding me of Cruella DeVille.

Scene Four: Gianna, the curvy babe we at Xcritic believed was the best female performer last year, was up next as she portrayed a stripper giving lap dances during a meeting on sexual harassment. The straight guys were all fixated on her act and Faye Reagan stepped in from the back row to liven things up with some sex toys when she perceived the show was not good enough. The lesbian act that followed was actually better than the previous one in terms of energy and passion, the dirty talk and general lesbian action pretty smoking hot. If asked, I'd have to admit that I thought they got off here, their juices flowing freely and believably.

Scene Five: Dahlia Denyle, a redhead turned on by the show but preferring cock over pussy, was up next with Rocco Reed and Ralph Long as they took her on the desk. She would suck one off while the other went down on her to the generic music, the gal kind of passive compared to some of the others in the movie. Her unpolished manner of embracing her inner whore aside, she stuck with the basics even though her asshole looked like it had seen as much action as her lips, the gal sticking to sucking just the head in most cases I observed. For me then, this was strictly a filler scene without replay value, the wads of population pudding jerked off to her face without any assistance by the gal.

Scene Six: Alexis Texas, the bountiful babe seen on the lower left corner of the cover, was up last with lovely Ashlynn Brooke, and every man Mark Wood in the office, the guy grumpy that the presentation opened the firm up to legal action. Alexis was the initial alpha female this time, slobbing his knob as though it were made of gold and Ashlynn played backup until she started doing some lesbian tricks as well as allowing Mark to snack on her crack. Alexis displayed some nice chemistry, not on par with her work with Pete but certainly as though she was cranking it up a notch from a general moper (which Mark is not). Both ladies got a chance to ride the cock vaginally though, Alexis showing some passion in her second or third position during the cowgirl variations, only the loud vocals ruining it somewhat. The editing and camera work on this scene were the worst of the sexual portions of the movie too but it ended with a big wad of spew thanks to Mark, the nut butter landing on Alexis' ass.

Summary: The Office: A XXX Parody Blu-ray by director Lee Roy Myers for New Sensations was a good first attempt at a porn parody, eschewing the homage to the show as the more popular team known for doing them tend to do in favor of pornifying the dynamic. The sexual discourse was a mixed bag to be sure but I still thought the overall package merited a rating of Recommended thanks to the entertainment value of the non-sex performances, lighter than the best but certainly better than the parodies shot by some of the other companies in the business these days. In short, The Office: A XXX Parody tried something new, copying a lesser known comedy currently airing rather than a show with a longer run and better ratings, making me think that the director might be able to pull off an even better try in future productions if given a better writing team and budget. I look forward to such an effort as the potential was definitely there to do something bolder and better. The high definition version of the movie might have been a marginal upgrade of the visual qualities of the show and the second disc of extras was a copy of the SD version (in SD) but those of you with the proper equipment might find this version well worth it.
