I liked most of the episodes this season, but overall it seems a bit...off. It's still funny - it's not unwatchable. It's just, the tone is a bit different, I don't know how to explain it.

I've never hated an episode, but I think last night's was boring. It seems like the whole point of it was to set up the finale.

Michael was too much of a jackass last night. He is too over-the-top this season (like when he drove into the lake, when he kidnapped the kid, and when he and Dwight went to the Utica branch). Also, the writers are making him really stupid - almost Homer Simpson stupid.

My favorite episode this season is probably Local Ad. Night Out and the first four hour long episodes were pretty good too.

Definitely agree about Michael and it's also getting a little tiring seeing how miserable everyone is at work. We get it, it's a crappy place to work, and it's central too the show, but it's getting to be a little too much for me.

Did anyone watch the repeats that were on last night?

I barely laughed at them the second time.

Maybe the season finale will make up for what's been a somewhat lackluster season.

Watched a bit of the NBC marathon. Some were hard to watch. Maddy couldn't wait to see Michael & Dwight drive into the lake again

The further the show goes, the more I see the wisdom in having a show like this have a finite schedule.

Ricky Gervais, thanks for not letting your show go on so far that your character became entirely unsympathetic and infuriating, and frankly, by far the worst thing on the show.

im still in the earlier episodes of this season, and i'm loving it, but also getting a little frustrated by the same thing over and over - i wish jim and pam were not together, and i want jan to go more crazy, because i still cannot understand why she's with him (especially from the deposition)

i wish that the uk office went for longer, but perhaps see the wisdom in only a smaller run, where else can they go you know? they can only do the same thing a few times before it loses its humour.

but i still it

I too wish that the UK version could have gone longer, but really, what else was there to say or do? It's brilliant the way it is, and had they kept going, it too would have suffered, although Gervais and Merchant are awesome.

This new season has had it's moments, but I agree, the characters are getting very hard to like. At least Creed has never changed!

Hopefully the season finale tonight doesn't suck dick, like the rest of this season.

I hope this show doesn't go on for more than one or two more seasons.

Same here.

The funny's still there, but I don't want to watch it when it's gone to shit either.

Hello, kitchen sink. They're really throwing it at us tonight.

Creed's reaction to the HR girl asking what he does = priceless.
