Releasing Angela was pretty funny. In general I thought they did a nice wrap-up.
It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. and we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Yeah... I thought it was a satisfying end... should have happened a couple years ago... but they did well.

This is the problem with being so behind with the television times - no one to talk to about an old show. But eh, I'll give it a go anyhow...

Cristina and I just started watching this show and love it. Dwight is our favorite character, of course. I find myself yelling out during the show, "I want my own Dwight at work!"

We're completely perplexed by Jan's interest in Michael, but it does make for good fun. We also love the differences from the British show (e.g. Michael's bizarre homoerotic advances toward Ryan).
The theater of noise is proof of our potential. The circulation of autotypes. The golden talisman underfoot is phenomenon approaching. And, in the history of now, all ethos are designed.

Jan becomes more and more self-destructive as the show goes on. At times it's disappointing and even tedious, but overall it makes for a good story arc, especially at those times where Michael gets to be the sane one in the relationship.

Ryan also gets a strange story arc - enjoy these early times when his role is to serve as a tether of normalcy in the office for us to relate to.

Enjoy!

THAT is fascinating to contemplate.

I am officially obsessed with this show. My favorite episode so far is the Dwight/Hannibal Lecter episode.

Did you ever see the original UK version?

I did, and loved it! I loved it so much I refused to watch the US version until now. So glad that I'm watching it. Though I did mention to my partner that by season 4 it doesn't seem like a remake anymore at all. She said she'd been thinking the same thing.
