    Other than the odd episode I hadn’t watched this show much until recently. Not sure the US version was ever shown in a decent time slot here in the U.K.

    Anyway, started watching this a month ago and I’m now on season 6 (just had the mallard duck/secret recorder episode). This show is so good.

    I haven’t read much in here because of spoilers but I’m starting to notice them make characters act in ways that don’t feel very true to the character.

    Stanley cheating with his personal trainer is one example, although Pam being outright horrible to Michael when she finds out he is dating her mother was one that stood out. Like, yes she would be mad, but to tell Michael she doesn’t care about his happiness didn’t seem like Pam to me.

    Hoping this isn’t a theme of the later seasons.

    Pam becomes unrecognizable as the show goes on tbh, they don't really course correct that imo

    Totally agree with all of those observations :-p

    Honestly, it's better to get used to these versions of the characters for the rest of the show

    party over here, i’ll be over there

    You're better off not worrying about that from here on out, honestly, and just enjoying the absurdity that ends up going on. I will be interested to see what you thing about Season 8 and 9.

    I don't even remember if I watched all of S8 & 9. I think I did but they were definitely rough and took awhile to get through

    They fucking ruined Andy

    Andy sucked from his first appearance.

    He started as a funny but annoying douche (like a pretentious Dwight), then they made him quite likeable and silly, and then just turned him into a straight up evil asshole with no redeemable qualities.

    I rooted for him and Erin and hated what they did with it haha

    Andy can be patchy but Nard Dog, Big Tuna and "beer me that ..." all get me good every time.

    I have fallen so far behind on the podcast, which surprises me because I love the show. I think I’m maybe on episode 5 of season 3 and they just posted season 4 opener I think, if not farther than that.

    Idk why, I almost feel like it’s too segmented which takes the fun out of it? Like, they sometimes have good stream of conscious conversations, but most of the time it feels very restrictive and repetitive. And my god the ads. I didn’t notice it the first 10-15 episodes but they really kicked it up a notch after awhile.
