Time for TV Tuesday: The Office (Seasons 1-9)

Recently Finished:
The Office (Season 1-9)

Such a fun show! I first watched this show in my youth and I didn’t like it. Maybe I was too young? Maybe it was because it was a random episode and so I didn’t understand anything? Who knows…but when I decided to do a run through a couple of years ago I fell absolutely in love. I decided to do another run through since there is a rumor of a reboot/continuation or something. And I love it even more now that I work in an office. 

This is for sure an adult show. Not that there is “bad” material, but it really is adult humor. As adults we can all connect in some way with either the characters or a situation. I adore watching the characters grow and watching the situations unfold. I honestly feel that the characters make this story. There is really nothing else. The story follows characters working in an office that sells paper. Sounds boring, eh? But the characters really make you want to work there.

It is hard to really pick a “favorite” character. The office goes through SO many changes. Some people leave, some people get fired, some people get promoted. It really does feel like an office. There are some characters that NEVER leave. The settlers. That is what I call them. People who just settle for what they have and will never leave the job they have until they retire or die. 

The last season was good. It does leave some wiggle room if they wanted to really continue the story. It was nice. Ryan, Kelly, and Andy disappointed me big time. I never liked Ryan, so eh. But Kelly? Andy? Why? Andy was an interesting character, but I hated him after what he did to poor Erin. Kelly…you fool. I can’t say much else, but those character’s really upset me. 

In the end, this is a fun show. Lots of humor, lots of feels, and lots of wasted time. How did this branch maintain sales??????????? I highly recommend it if you are an adult. LOL! I’ll star each season and so an average:

Season 1: 4
Season 2: 5
Season 3: 3
Season 4: 2
Season 5: 4
Season 6: 5
Season 7: 5
Season 8: 3
Season 9: 5

A solid 4!

I don't think I've tried this one

I stay away from TV series or serials - they are too time-consuming.

Ana, but...but...there are so many good ones out there!!

I've seen all of the UK version. Loved it. Been meaning to try the US one at some point. Glad to see you liked it pretty well.

I tried the UK version. It was okay...I feel the US version is better.
