Brilliant. I don't really watch this show, but for all my "why would a documentary film crew spend a decade filming the same office" questions, a clip like this makes up for it.

This was back in season 2, when they were still trying to make the characters feel the tiniest bit human, with (often crippling) flaws that accounted for why they were where they were. But a season or two later they apparently decided that was too hard, and made virtually everyone on the show retarded (some literally so, like Kevin).

Part of that is a flaw in the concept of the show: Scranton Dunder-Mifflin is a dead-end job with people who have hit a dead-end, this is where they fell and this is where they have taken root. "Parks and Recreation" solved that little problem by being a show about solving problems, which allows for growth and change.

All the "not a retard" character traits were removed so they could be concentrated into completing the perfect beings of Jim & Pam the entire (fucking) show could revolve around, leaving everyone else a retard husk.

Do you guys also think The Simpsons stopped being funny when they left the Tracy Ullman show?

Where the fuck is Ricky Gervais?

Bort - 2014-11-12
I admit it, I don't think "The Simpsons" is as good as it used to be.

I was pretty in to Life In Hell in 6th grade, so I can pretty much outhipster 99% of people on account of having first seen the Simpsons when the back of (adult) Bart Simpson was part of a drawing of a crowd watching a parade before there even WAS a Tracey Ullman show.

File under: reasons why I didn't get dates

I was the same way. I got really into Life in Hell because it was right next to Garfield. When the Simpsons came out I thought it'd last a week, sort of like Family Guy after I got into Larry and Steve. Thought it'd last about as long as Family dog did. But I kept watching because I could make personal connections (like I was born on Lovejoy Street, lived near Evergreen Terrace, things like that right down to the angry band conductor and subsequently the school that Springfield Elementary is modeled after)

Are we saying The Office jumped up in quality after season 2 to the same degree The Simpsons did? Is someone really saying that? Holy shit!

I think as the show went on, the characters were just victims of Flanderization http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Flanderization

The audience likes the parts where Dwight is ridiculous and Kevin is dumb and how can we fit more Andy, because that doesn't get old, so let's just have the show be 90% these characters being idiots. That and you're gonna run out of realistic office situation ideas after a while.

Bort - 2014-11-12
I'll say it, sure. Not immediately after season 2; probably after season 4 sometime. That's about when we started getting Dwight's evil plan and Ryan's descent into a scam artist and Scott's Tots and Michael's rival paper company. I expect my sitcom characters to be dumber than real people, but not so dumb that I wonder how they dress themselves.

Also, the absolutely riveting saga of Jim taking a second job with Athleap, and how it was putting a strain on his marriage.

I will say that, in the final episode, I saw something I wish they'd been doing all along: Jim using his craftiness to be a friend to his friends. It's a shame they waited until the last possible episode to spring that on us, because goddamn.

I KNEW THE OFFICE WOULD JUMP THE SHARK IMMEDIATELY AFTER HORACE WROTE HIS CRITIQUE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL COMPONENTS OF DRAMA

I ENJOYED THE SIMPSONS....BACK WHEN STARS WERE BURNING HYDROGEN MOLECULES INTO GOLD VIA THE PROCESS OF SUPERSTELLAR NUCLEOSYNTHESIS

Number of Breaking Bads I own: Zero. Eat it, bitch. And that's not even a Breaking Bad quote.

Sexy Duck Cop - 2014-11-12
The Sopranos? yeah, I was singing Soprano....because that show was so bad it castrated me....and I subsequently began singing in a high-pitched voice......even though I wasn't a singer before shit Aaron stop adding these unnecessary details comedy is about economy and you're a fucking pack mule

Sexy Duck Cop - 2014-11-12
The Wire? More like The Fire! Which is what I wanted to do after I watched that pile of garbage! On my eyeballs I mean! I probably should've specified that earlier!

I liked your first comment but then you kinda were just doing it to play to the masses
