I can't believe how fucking funny and cleaver it is!!!!!
I saw the first and half of the second season last night.

I'm loving it!!!

Please tell me is not one of those shows that by the 3rd-4th season it gets absolutely horrible!!!

Believe it or not, it gets even more cleaver in later seasons.

I don't know that I'd agree. The show's cleaverness has significantly dropped off over the past year or two. I don't find it as cutting as it used to be, and many of the witticisms are far less sharp than over the first few seasons.

Well, it's a given that over time it will grow dull... but, never-the-less, the show still absolutely slices through a lot of the other junk on television.

yes he does, and it gets funnier.

i would say this last season is the ony one i've been meh about, but even then there were some hilarious moments like dwight saying that something was as annoying as children singing christmas carols, lol.

and here's the office thread (http://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?t=142&highlight=office) :)

True, and maybe it's because I'm so accustomed to comparing this to what some of the other hacks in Hollywood bring to the fore, I expect something far more consistently incisive from this program.

In any event, I'm sure we won't see The Office on the chopping block any time soon!

Yeaaahhh!!!!!

I'm excited about getting off from my Office to watch it!!!

Guys, if you met my supervisor, he's exactly like Michael. Always thinking he's the funniest guy around, thinking we all love/respect him, making jokes out of place.

Who else works in an actual office??

Can I also recommend the British version? It is maybe a bit less "slapstick" and more "uncomfortable" humor... the boss (Ricky Gervais) has slimy down to a T. Not sure which version I prefer, really; the American cast is more attractive :)

You bring up a sharp point, and not keeping the show consistently cleaver has its consequences: Me forgetting to watch it, and I'm sure a lot of people forget to watch episodes of The Office because it's not as tempered as it used to be.

I hope that Fringe never loses its edge though. That show has got some tang!

Last copule seasons of USA Office haven't been that great.

I now prefer the Japanese version
