It's been off my DVR since that episode about a trivia contest. Went from shit to utter shit. The only character I left not hating was Creed.
I stopped watching after the garden party episode. Really, does anyone still think this show is good at this point?
It's only 'not good' in comparison to older episodes and what the Office once was, which is pretty unfair considering how good this show used to be. Has the Office 'jumped the shark'? Maybe. Has the Office turned into an irredeemable pile of shit that's not worth watching? Well that's up to you to decide but as a long time fan I still think it's an adequate show, and in contrast to any comedy that CBS or FOX is offering us the Office is still decent enough to warrant my attention. I'd much rather watch the Office than shows like 2 and a Half Men, which is somehow heralded as TV's #1 comedy, and Big Bang Theory which just comes off as haughty nowadays. There's also the shitfest knows as 2 Broke Girls which apparently gets 4 times the number of average viewers than Community ever got which is criminal.
This. I still watch it because my friends and I have a tradition of getting together and watching it every Thursday night. If it wasn't for that, I'd probably just stop watching it at this point. There isn't any story that I'm interested in anymore, the characters have all become largely unrealistic, and the writing just isn't nearly is clever as it was when it started. That said, it still does make me laugh and I still find it entertaining, but if it stopped airing I probably wouldn't be upset about it.
