I know I am really, really late to the party when it comes to watching “The Office,” but I get it. I finally understand why there is such a hype about this show.
I recently took on the task of binging the comedy to see just exactly what I have been missing out on all these years, and I was actually disappointed in myself for not watching this show sooner. Now three seasons in, I think I can faithfully say I am addicted, and I am fully invested in the story between Jim and Pam.
Maybe it is because I feel like I can relate to the characters, or maybe because I find the stupid humor a lot more funny than it probably should be… but “The Office” is a show that I look forward to watching, and apparently do not mind wasting hours and hours of my time letting the episodes roll on by. For example, Netflix oh so kindly asked me twice last night whether or not I was still watching, and I was kind of offended. I think that means I have way too much free time, or should really get off my couch more often.
It is kind of sad that the show is no longer on, even though there are nine seasons that I have to work my way through. Right now, I am only about a third of the way through season three, so I still have a long way to go. Even still, I find myself constantly wondering what Michael Scott is going to say next, or what prank Jim is going to pull on Dwight, or just WHEN ARE PAM AND JIM GOING TO BECOME A THING?! Seriously though, that needs to happen ASAP. I can not handle how much that needs to happen. It is the main reason I continue to click “next episode” for hours at a time!
Anyways, if you have not yet started “The Office,” I suggest that you too jump on this and start the journey of Dunder Mifflin’s paper supply company. Especially if you have a great sense of humor, or need to work on your own.
On that note, I think it is time to tell Netflix that yes, I am still watching, and hunt down another show that I should watch when this one is done! Have a suggestion? Comment below!
