I liked the office, until they went on the Writer's strike.
Now I'm more used to my Thursdays without TV. I don't know where they can go from here on in. Frankly, I'm kind of getting bored.
dwight will always do weird thingsjim will always play pranksmichael will always be stupid.
maybe for the series finale, the office park burnt down...

The post-strike episodes ARE taking awhile to get their stride back, but they're doing it. There's no doubt about it, the strike DID take the wind out of the sails of many fans, and killed much of the momentum the series had. On camera, the actors are all very gracious towards the writers and understanding of why they had to strike, but the fact is, the strike screwed a lot of things up. All for the greater good, long-term improvements in quality and emotional investment, yadda yadda yadda, but The Office had a good thing going that stopped cold with the strike.
The more the characters break out of the office environment, the more like a standard sitcom it becomes. A once-in-a-while foray is refreshing, not world-changing, but the formula that was The Office's strong suit was in-office shenanigans. Smart writing and character studies can keep it fresh, even when set indoors.
I just don't want the series to jump the shark any time soon. My biggest worry is that it'd happen when Jim & Pam get married--there's such a thing as too much resolution. Gotta keep it tense somehow...
