The proposal was probably more impactful than the wedding since the wedding episode was just a bunch of meh fan service, and by far the most enjoyable part of it were Dwight's escapades. However, it feels like Jim and Pam were still enjoyable characters past that.

Despite the fact that Florida Stanley was GOATish, I definitely feel like the Florida part is when the show actually descended toward being legitimately bad. It was very, very slowly bleeding out from years before, but it remained one of the best things on TV until late in the series.

My vote goes to Florida, with the runner-up being that there was no one jump-the-shark moment where it died. I don't think I'm buying the departure of Michael or the Jim/Pam wedding, just because it feels like there was still strong stuff directly after both.


Always glad to chat about Office stuff. I think the Florida trip is definitely one of the lines of big drop offs. I cannot emphasize enough how much I dislike the first iteration of Nellie and the moment she sits in the managers chair back in Scranton is a sign that we're in store for some of the most rough times the show has.

On the brighter side of that (definitely downward overall) arc, when I think The Office goes to Florida, one of the first things I think of is Stanley randomly traipsing through Jim's room and mumbling, "Careful Jim, it gets easier and easier..." Great line.

If we were to cast the office with people from the wrestling forum I 100% have you as Stanley

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I don't think I'm very Jim. I just am uncreative and pick user names based on what I'm watching at the time.


Yeah, that Stanley line was so good.


Also are we all in agreement that Packer is the worst character on the show and furthermore the dude that plays Packer is pretty unfunny in ~ everything else I've seen him in?

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I've definitely got Packer as the worst. At least with other unfunny characters, the stupidity wasn't aggressively in your face the whole time. Nellie could be one of five people in a scene and not always be at the center of it, but Packer would just take the air out of the room so that we would all have to sit and concentrate on him not being funny.

I've never enjoyed Koechner in anything else either.

It's like having a great TV show, and then a character based on GREEAR gets dropped into the middle of it to ruin the occasional episode.

That said, this guy is pure nails on chalkboard and not at all funny in anything I've ever seen him in:
I've softened on him. He's funny sometimes.

Based on the IMDb ratings graph, it looks like I wasn't alone in seeing this show as a slow starter that eventually hit its stride.

Alright the women on Office Ladies have to be lying at some point. They didn't love EVERYONE they worked with.

I'm definitely always keeping a sharp ear for anything Angela Kinsey says about Paul Lieberstein since she married and then divorced his brother. Seems like she very rarely references him though.

Hat tip to this thread for the Six Feet Under rec. I've meant to finally dive in for a bit, but I did tonight. Pilot is incredible, second episode is very strong. Pretty sure I'm going to love the **** out of this.

I absolutely loved that show. In 2007 I bumped my netflix subscription to 5 discs at once so I could tear through it.

Sigh. Have been very invested in the Ryan Leaf recovery story. This sucks.
