Office - Season Two Reviews
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..."
the office is an amazing show :P
makes me laugh a lot
and this season was great! well the office is always great
Right from the start, you will see a huge increase in the quality of this show.
The very first episode is so outragous and hillarious, it beats all of season 1 single-handedly.
And although, all the episodes are not as hillarious, the vast majority of them are.
This season brings back all the characters, but adds a whole new depth to them. The Jim/Pam thing gets really interesting, and has a great cliffhanger ending in the final episode.
The humour in this season is top notch. Steve Carrell out does himself, and there's great performances from the cast all round.
I decided that this is one of my favourite comedies after watching this season. I strongly recommend it.
The Office, on the other hand, is the best sitcom ever aired. Rarely am I entertained by comedies, but this show has great laughs, great characters, sad parts, romance, and very creative, witty writing. Its even better than Arrested Development.
Season 2 was Great
And so far Season 3 has been just as good..
I also can't wait to finally see [i]The Illusionist[/i], which shows up in one of my local theatres this weekend. Has anyone seen this yet? All of the reviews I've read are making me super eager. I hope it's as gorgeous as they all have said.
