I stopped watching The Office just after Jim and Pam’s wedding, and since I’m caught up on Parks and Rec I thought I’d go back and watch the whole thing again. I’m just through the second season, and it’s been a delightful reminder of one universal truth:
The episode where Michael burns his foot on the Foreman grill is still one of the funniest fucking sitcom episodes ever. 20 minutes of pitch-perfect comedy, and we got a glimpse of Dwight as a normal person.
I’ve heard it goes downhill later on, especially after Steve Carrell leaves, but if there’s even one episode as good as that one it’ll be worth it.
