The Office is surprisingly watchable these days

This. The current season of the Office is the season that we should have had after Steve Carell left.

If I had a complaint, it would be the way that both Jim and Andy's characters are being treated this season. I have heard rumors that there may be some behind the scenes resentment towards both Ed Helms and John Krasinksi because they were concentrated on other projects while filming the final season. I really hope those rumors aren't true but all things considered, the crew has really crafted a fun season that pleasantly reminds me of the better times this show has had to offer.

Yeah, this season of The Office has been fine. Andy has been exceptionally unlikeable but Dwight has been on fine form. Far better than the James Spader season. The return of the original show runner has helped a lot, and I even kinda like the fact that the film crew is coming into it. Obviously Brian is no threat no Jim and Pam, but the plot hasn't been over done yet.

30 Rock's final season was so good that I almost didn't notice how awesome Parks and Rec has been until the glorious wedding episode. That was exceptional.

Yeah, 30 Rock Season 7 was amazing, perhaps it's best season of them all.

This weeks was probably the strongest so far of the new season. The german that's friends with Abed is my new favorite character.


I've been discussing this show on here since season 2 :wink:

And that convention episode was the best this season imo.

Zero you missed out on how great Parks and Rec was because it wasn't great until recently. This season has been weak

Ugh I hate the office. I like Parks and Rec now though, since I stopped trying to watch the first season and just started from the third.

Second season was good too, but it's kinda weird to watch it without Adam Scott and Sam Seaborn.

second season gets good by the end, it started pretty slowly too I think.

3rd season is where it really kicked off.

Honestly though when the show focuses on Leslie it's usually pretty dull. It shines when it focuses on Ron, Andy or Chris.

Tom is hit or miss for me, but I just find that actor hyper annoying.

Asiz Ansari was the reason I watched the first season. It was awful and I really didn't think I'd come back for more. The second season started really strong for me and I have enjoyed every episode since. I'm not saying it's consistently amazing, but it's never had episodes as bad as a lot of HIMYM, BBT and a lot of other shows. It's probably as good as The Office was in those early years.

I went back to watch season 1, I can't even believe the show was renewed past that, it was terrible.

Brandanowitz was a bad character too, glad he never came back like I heard he was supposed to

Parks & Rec Season 1 is good, but no more than that, it didn't become the show it is until Season 2.

And I like Mark Brendanowicz, they should bring him back eventually.

Nah, he's off being a romantic leading man somewhere. Let him stay there. Adam Scott is a better straight man for the show, since he can also be a massive weirdo.

Season 1 is like Community season 4, it's trading in on the affection we have for the characters for any love you may have for it. Except it's doing it from the past. Which may have been the plot of the first Phonogram. Or maybe not.

You can bring him back as a wrench for when Ann and Chris finally get together

It felt like a fill in writer had come in and worked on the episode. Someone who knew the show and it's characters in passing.

Like I said, the only thing that really redeemed that episode was the end credits scene with the reimagining.

It's easily the weakest episode of the season and I might say possibly of the whole series.
