"Watching "The Office" for the first time...question"


  

          

I'm on Season 5..

Does Micheal EVER win?

Just a simple "yes" will suffice...but damn...like, he never wins..ever.

I get that him being a loser is a part of the show, but even a broken clock is right twice a day.

His losses are usually well earned. He's a lovable loser until you pay attention to how awful he is toward nearly everyone, at seemingly every turn.

To be fair, he's surrounded by a bunch of enablers who deserve what they get from him.

Like...when he's tracking for a win and the rug gets yanked from under him I feel bad...but then I think about he treated Oscar and I go "well...yeah..that's what he gets"

But it's a tough watch now..what..over 10, damn near 15 years after it first came out? Maybe early 30's me wouldn't mind seeing a guy lose over and over and over, but late 40's me is like "damn..even the worst guy deserves a W sometimes"

I tried to binge Curb Your Enthusiasm and found it depressing. I guess it's like having THAT friend that's kinda fun to hang out with in short occasional doses bc they're offbeat/ a bit strange/sarcastic/whatever. It's not until you start hanging with them daily that you figure out they're insufferable.

I really, really hate Micheal now.

They got the news about the company being bankrupt, so he does the "Murder Mystery" game...and everytime he opens his mouth I wanna put a boot in it.

Outside of a Creed moment, it's not even funny anymore. I'm just watching now to get to the end.

In these later seasons, they should have done more with Stanley, Phyllis, Meredith, Kevin etc. I think there was some undiscovered gold in a lot of the secondary characters.

I'm good with how it ended..

Andy turned out to be a "worser" version of Michael.


Question though..

If Angela did lie about the baby being Dwights, was the doctor in on it too?

żIf a fat guy falls in the woods and there is no one around to see it, do the trees laugh?
