"The Office" Season Two is without a doubt the most fantastic season of any show in Television history to me and for me only. I expect no one to agree with this, but if you let me give my explanation, this show means the absolute world to me.
The first episode of the show I ever watched was "Basketball". It didn't exactly do it for me, but at the time iTunes had only five shows on there, and the office was one of them. I bought a random episode for the heck of it, watched it, and felt it was just okay. The next night, my dad and I caught "Christmas Party" on T.V. for its first airing. Oh my gosh, I had never laughed so hard in my life. This episode got me hooked on the show forever. For an avid office fan, this marked the middle of the second season, the show's ultimate prime, in which it won Best Comedy Series at the Emmys.
From there, I bought Season One on DVD and purchased every episode of season 2 I had missed up to that point on iTunes. I watched it and became instantly hooked. The comedy and humor was top knotch. At the time, I was in 8th grade and I felt that I perfectly understood the character of Jim Halpert. I liked a girl and of course she was already taken, much like Jim's situation with Pam and Roy. Of course, junior high is so primitive and unimportant. But at the time, I felt that The Office was sort of telling my story. I started to act like Jim as much as I could. His facial features and mannerisms. I don't know why but he meant so much to me. The entire show felt like it was for me and no one would understand it as much as I did.
Since then, I have seen every single episode of the office two to twenty or so times. Every single episode no matter what anyone says is absolutely entertaining. I have literally grown up with these characters so I almost treat them like actual and real people. Season 3 on up have all been fantastic. Every character is important to what makes the office the greatest sitcom ever. Plus, the show rarely uses physical comedy. On Disney channel and such, physical comedy is all they ever show. But in the office, it never happens. So, when it actually does happen, it's flat out hilarious because it's so much appreciated.
The Office is a comedic phenomenon that I can wait for to end. Once it ends, I'll always go back to watch it. But every new episode feels like a gift that cannot be explained. I would talk about it every single Friday with various friends of mine who loved and adored it just as much as I do. All I know, is that finale episode will hit me so hard and be incredibly difficult to accept. It's been with me all through High School and now that I enter my final summer before college, I feel so thankful that it still exists. It's a comfort for me. Seeing my favorite characters continue on puts a smile on my face. Jim, Kevin, Dwight, Michael, Ryan, Oscar, Stanley, Kelly, Creed, etc. Everyone is apart of me. Season Two however introduced me to it all, and I still find it the greatest season of the entire show because the comedy is so top notch.
So, I will give a final thoughs once that last season comes around. Until then, I will continue to enjoy what it gives me. "That's what she said..."
