So I'm not sure how many of you watch "The Office" on NBC, but I've managed to get hooked and I've been an avid watcher ever since.

Altho, I'm not sure if these new seasons are directly related to the British version like seasons before or if this is "The Office" just running on it's own and not copying the British version...

I liked the whole Jim and Pam deal before.. they were so close to dating but not, the tension whether or not Jim would tell Pam he liked her, etc. ,etc.

Now in the new season them dating kinda is like a buzz-kill, anyone agree?

I hope The Office doesn't take a turn for the worst and end up crappy.

I love that show. I don't think that Pam and Jim dating has hurt the quality at all. Really, their relationship isn't all that much different. Since the show has so many quality characters, I don't see it getting stale anytime soon.

I don't watch the British version enough to know for sure, but I'm pretty sure the American version is it's own thing these days.

To be fair, if they had kept that relationship hanging in the air for much longer, it would have just become like Lost or 24: tension for tension's sake. Ugh. I'm glad they finally just got it over with. The show doesn't hinge on that one facet, and I'm glad it's on the back burner now, so they can focus on funnier sh*t like, uh, anything having to do with Rainn Wilson.

i agree that it doesn't steal from the show anymore, but I kinda liked the whole up in the air thing.. altho I do think at one point it had to happen...

I'm hoping that it stays funny, Dwight is by far hilarious and one of the main reasons why I watch the show...

I saw a guy around here recently wearing a Dunder Mifflin sweatshirt. I had to chuckle a bit.

I've seen so many of those around here, I've stopped chuckling.

I was hooked from the pilot when Dwight found his stapler frozen in a jello mold. Then there are the scenes that keep me coming back.. Dwight crashing his car, getting concussed and puking on his car. There's also the one where Jim added a nickle to Dwight's phone handset every day so he'd get used to the weight. Then when it was full, he removed them all and Dwight hit himself in the face with it because it suddenly got light. So many good scenes.

yeah, those writers are brilliant. Some other great ones...Jim trains Dwight to expect a breath mint every time he boots his computer...or when he threw his cellphone up into the ceiling. Beeeutiful.
