Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

You’ll find this takes binge watching to the next level. They did so much with this series that would never fly in todays PC culture of people constantly finding some way to be offended.

And yet this series is as accurate today as when it first was aired in 2005.

I hated it but trudged through season 1 and then it really picked up in season 2. I'm on season 9 now. Worth it.

Besides the finale, Seasons 8 and 9 are very hard for me to stay engaged.

We love the show. We fall asleep to it every night.
Though I think it falls off around season 6 or 7 when Sabre takes over.

2021 it is getting pulled from Netflix and being replaced with Seinfeld which will likely become our fall asleep show.

The last 2 seasons were painful.

The last few seasons were not as good as the earlier ones, but still a fun watch.

Parks & Rec was another one we enjoyed.

I loved it, but it really should have ended when Steve Carell left the show, it would have been a perfect ending but they milked it for like 3 more seasons and it got more and more ridiculous.

IMO it never was the same without him.

I too lost interest after Steve left the show. I honestly never watched a single episode while it was one the air. I found it on Netflix a couple years ago. The absence of a laugh track and being shot in a documentary fashion makes it very unique.

I, too, started into this one late when it started being shown on Comedy Central last year. Wish I wouldn't have waited. I think the low point is brief arc with Will Ferrell, probably because I detest him. I also thought Steve Carell was pretty played out by the time he left. They did a good job of tying it all together at the end.

I was pretty meh about it when I tried to watch it years ago. About a year ago, a co-worker showed me some funny clips and I loved it so I went back and started watching it again. I love the show now. When I started watching it at home the wife was annoyed at first, but then she too started loving it. We pretty much just turn it on when we want background noise or something easy to watch without having to pay too close attention. We probably watch it 5 days a week haha. I will definitely miss it when Netflix loses it.

ETA: I didn't care for Will Ferrell being in it, though. My only dislike about the show.

The British lady was grating, I hated her charactor.

Will Ferrell was weak, but he wasnt around very long

The Office has become my background noise. Probably on my seventh pass through the series.
It’s actually on right now. Take Your Daughter To Work Day.
