    I've found this season to be pretty forced and outlandish to the point of being unfunny. In general, all the characters seem to be shifting away from what made them funny in the first place, primarily Pam, Jim and Dwight, the three most focused upon characters aside from Michael. The youtube wedding (coupled with the obnoxiously long Chris Brown song) was agonizing to watch and a I've found this season to be pretty forced and outlandish to the point of being unfunny. In general, all the characters seem to be shifting away from what made them funny in the first place, primarily Pam, Jim and Dwight, the three most focused upon characters aside from Michael. The youtube wedding (coupled with the obnoxiously long Chris Brown song) was agonizing to watch and a pretty clear picture of where the show is going if the writers don't start working some miracles to undo the mess they've made. I am NOT looking forward to the baby situation with Pam and Jim as well -- very unlikely that they'll be able to create something funny out of something so banal and off-putting to a lot of viewers. As for the individual who said he has a Master's, did the educational institution you occupied as an adult for several years really convince you those pieces of paper you've acquired for easier employment equate to being "smart"? I'm going to go out on a limb and guess either business or psychology since you didn't state what you got your Master's in. Regardless, your time spent in school obviously didn't prepare you for the real world humor of Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, who I should mention both appeared on one of the most hilarious episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm I've ever seen tonight. The Office has gone stale, but there's still a thin ray of hope. I'm going to continue watching and hold out for something to happen, but I think myself and a lot of others don't plan on doing so for much longer. On a side note, Andy and Creed continue to be hitting the mark week after week when other characters fall flat. Expand

    This show is in a "The Emperor Has No Clothes" kind of situation. Anyone with a sense of clarity can see it's not funny anymore. The writing is very, very flat and I do not find myself caring about any of the characters. Go watch one of the first thirty episodes (seasons 1-2) and you'll see what I'm talking about. The Office has fallen a long way.

    I've tried watching this show, but it's just not that good. It's sort of the equivalent of Seinfeld, a show that a lot of people find humorous when it is really more bland than anything. Al ot of people have said that if you don't get Seinfeld (or the Office), then you're not smart enough to enjoy it. I find that disheartening considering I have a Master's I've tried watching this show, but it's just not that good.

    This show is a shell of what it once was. The situations, characters, and yes, even the awkwardness is so forced at this point that it's blatant and unfunny. One reviewer who said that the characters have become "cartoons" and caricatures of themselves hit the nail on the head. The "Mafia" episode was the first episode I remember being truly, truly bad, and it was followed by aboutThis show is a shell of what it once was.

One reviewer who said that the characters have become "cartoons" and caricatures of themselves hit the nail on the head. The "Mafia" episode was the first episode I remember being truly, truly bad, and it was followed by about 10-15 other equally bad or marginally better ones. There was an occasional funny episode, and the show seemed to pick up some momentum toward the end of the season, but the season finale was abysmal. Next season should be the final season when Steve Carrell leaves if anyone has any sense; despite the terrible writing, he's made a valiant effort to keep things funny. Short of bringing Ricky Gervais in to replace him, the show will be dead in the water. Parks & Rec has gotten way funnier while The Office has gone off a cliff. Expand

    The solidly entertaining season premiere of The Office is of a piece with last season's better episodes.

    Michael is a clinically interesting personality type who is profoundly unempathetic, until such times as he is very empathetic. The wonderful creative trick of The Office is knowing exactly the right moment to humanize Michael.
  3. It's a typically funny Office episode that makes good use of most of the cast.
