It's always been about Creed and Meredith for me. A little bit of Toby too. The background characters have been hilarious. You kind of don't really want to get to know more about Meredith and in 9 years you haven't had to.

I also found it hilarious when last week Dwight referenced the film crew that's always following them around.

Also the jazz joke.

"You're not stupid, jazz is stupid."

"Jazz IS stupid! Just play the right notes!"

Kind of gave up around season 5. The first 3 seasons are solid as hell. I don't know how to vote.

I watched the first two episodes of the third series last night. Have they abandoned the concept of the documentary and just kept the filming style?

Why would the camera crew go to someones house and film secretly through the window at night?

Why, in their world, has the show not been on tv yet? Or if it has why has Michael not been fired?

Why are the characters still unaware that they're miked up when they're having "secret" conversations?


I like it but these things bug me.


Agree with this. I felt patronised that Michael Scott's last words were "Can you guys let me know if this ever airs?". Like we are supposed to find it amusing that the writing has been so lazy that they failed to even acknowledge this this is fact a documentary, and not just a bunch of guys filming stock footage for 9 years.

Not crap = seasons 1-7

Crap = seasons 8&9

Anyone any thoughts on the current season?

I just finished rewatching Season 2. Favourite quote:

Dwight: (shows Creed a picture of some weed.) Do you know what this is?
Creed: That's Northern Lights cannabis Indica.
Dwight: *Sigh* No...It's marijuana.


Gold.

Am I slightly late to this?

I'm only familiar with the US version and I can echo the sentiments already expressed here: first two or so seasons are really funny but after that the focus changed from comedy generated by absurd characters and situations happening in the office to a tv series about relationships. On one hand I can admire the fact writers were able to turn the near-cartoon characters from season one to somehow believable personalities, on the other one I totally lost interest in watching this circa season 4. Show was easily at best when it was about office bickering between everyone, Dwight, Jim and Dwight in particular. I might have said "Dwight" twice, I like Dwight.
