Oh the agony!
11 February 2010 | by iamnate85See all my reviews

The closing episode of season five was yet another triumph in the world of greg daniels! The show was at its peak (which i seemed to say after every episode). Then... came season 6. Now for the most part this season is OK not great, but not bad. After the recap episode (which for some reason people will fight for saying "it was bound to happen") I just about cried. Was it over? Did the office have its day? Then, this episode came out and completely verified that! The actors seem worn out. The script writing is dry, and to make things worse they reach out into actors that we don't care about! That's what I loved about the show to begin with, real people... Just not funny anymore... get this show rolling again or put a bullet in its head, its not right to see it suffer...
