(Not to be confused with J.P.'s office or the British version. ;\) )

Any interest amongst the Axiom faithful for a thread to discuss the show? It's my favorite show right now. It seems to hit my funny bone just right.

How about that season finale? (Spoiler alert to anyone that has it on TiVo but not watched it yet)
Warning, Spoiler:

That was certainly a busy double episode. I thought it was well-played to have Andy interrupt Jim's proposal. Now Pam is wondering what's going on, meaning there's a new source of the tension that seems to drive sit-com "will-they-or-won't-they" relationships.

And I thought that having the new HR person think that Kevin is retarded was just perfect.

I don't normally watch sitcom television, but I got hooked on "The Office" reruns in the fall. I enjoyed the show so much I stopped watching so I could get the box sets and watch them in sequential order.

I think I like it so much now, because it closely resembles my work environment--i.e. distribution.

Yeah, something about the tone of the show hits my funny bone just right, too. It can be hilarious, touching, and uncomfortable.

Thanks for the spoiler alert--I haven't seen any of the fourth season episodes yet. One of the guys here at work says you can watch them online on "The Office" website.

I think that the community sense of humor I have observed here on the boards has a feel that is close to the show, so I'm not surprised that you like it. I bet that if a few of us got together that we could pull off a nice sit-com.

The NBC web site for the show is pretty good, and with the whole "Dundler-Mifflin Infinity" thing (fourth season, so you may not know what it is - just wait), they do a pretty good job of mimicing what the real D-M site would look like, I'm guessing.

I remember seeing a Pizza by Alfredo web site that was also fake, referring to some of the characters.

And Dwight's blog, Schrute Space, is good for an occasional laugh.

Well, when everyone is ready to write a sitcom, I'm in!

Strangely enough, I haven't checked out the website for "The Office" yet. One of my coworkers joined the virtual office community.

I don't know if I'm ready to join. My nerd scale isn't high enough yet.

It's been one of my favorites since it started, I don't think I've missed a show. \:\) My wife doesn't get it though. \:\/

Oh, but I disagree!

Hmm. It would now appear that one of us has misjudged you. I posit that it is you!

I give the show one thumb up. I'm one of the annoying snobs who liked the original British version a lot more.

I've gotta watch that one day.

Although now that I have a love for the American version, do you think that it will make it harder for me to like the British version?
