Andy didn't even have a recognizable personality during the last season.

He became such an angry dickhead, for like no good reason. Was a poor creative choice made even worse by bad writing.

He's in less than half of the episodes. The show didn't need Andy. Ed Helms didn't need the show. Everyone was pin the same page. Andy was always insufferable. I love that they had the courage to seed him through to s logical conclusion. I never liked him but his arc was perfect.

On season 7 now and i can tell it starts to decline around now.


We're in Season 6 and I can feel myself getting less interested. I can't believe they did a clip show; that seemed to be beneath them.

The new footage in that is pretty hilarious though. All the stuff with the robot and Michael riding in on a fucking Segway! Hilarious. But yeah, otherwise I was disappointed that they did a clip show. Glad they only ever did the one.

I just watched that clip show the other day. Watching episodes and seasons I missed after I stopped watching and was loving it and then lost momentum when I hit the clip show.

There's one a few episodes after that where Dwight and Michael spend a good amount of time in front of the worst greenscreen I've ever seen and it just falls completely flat.

After having a kid, the episode where Jim and Pam have a baby is a lot funnier / relatable. Mostly the back-and-forth about sending the baby to the hospital's nusery:

Jim: It's going to be alright.
Pam: Maybe it'll be good because then she can socialize with the other babies.
Jim: Ha ha. [Realizes Pam is serious because of her crazy hormones] No, yeah, that will be good.

I remember thinking Robert California was so weird and unnecessary as I watched the original airing. But every time I go back and re-watch S8, I like him more and more. Robert California is one of my favorite parts of the last two seasons.

I expected that episode to be the moment the series jumped the shark, but it was pretty good. The conversation they had with the day care manager a few episodes before that was hilarious too. And I don't even have kids.

So many of Michael's storylines are wonderfully painful and funny at the same time. Like when they all go out as a big group and he's funny and charming and sweet to the woman that Jim/Pam are setting him up with. And then Jim lets on that they're trying to set them up, so Michael goes out to the car, changes his clothes, and becomes "Date Mike," who is totally insufferable.

Even for the internet... it's pretty shocking.

Are we watching at the same pace? I just watched that episode two days ago. What a loveable train wreck.

In the end, I think it's safe to say that the true hero of the series was:
