So, I just started watching The Office. Yea, yea, I know… a little late on the uptake there, particularly considering I’m NEPA born and raised. I had tried to watch it when the series first debuted back in 2005, and it just didn’t click with me then. Maybe as a newly minted college freshman I was just sick of the “OMG The Office! Is Scranton really like that?” responses when I told people where I grew up. Maybe I just didn’t give it enough of a chance – the few episodes I tried were all very early first season, and I remember being a little annoyed at how heavily they mimicked the british episodes at times.
Well whatever it was doesn’t matter because I finally gave it another chance the other day while I was knitting my mum’s birthday present and can I just say… OMG. I’m in love. Mainly with the Pam/Jim storyline. I also love Stanley, but holy shamoley, Pam and Jim.
I just finished season two now, and I can’t even tell you how glad I am that I didn’t hop on the boat while it was on TV… because now? I don’t have to wait months for season three! Gotta love Netflix.
Any of you fans of The Office? What about other series you fell in love with after they’ve left the air?
