I wrote about the brilliance of The Office in a previous post, but I would like to go into a bit more detail about some of my favorite episodes. In total, there are 188 episodes of The Office; I plan on sharing about 10-15 of the best episodes out of these 188.
Many people think that The Office started to decline after Season 7 when Michael Scott left the show. Michael Scott is one of the most popular TV characters of all time, so it is understandable that the show would start to dip a bit. However, I actually think that the show was still quite good after he left, and that his presence not being there helped to build out the storylines of the rest of the characters in The Office.
Also, I think that for people who made it to the end of the show, there is no way that you could be disappointed by the final episodes. In season 9, episodes 21, 22, and 23 are extended to 40+ minutes (most Office episodes are only 20 minutes or so) because these are the final 3 of the series. These episodes do a great job of wrapping up the series by mixing the past and present of The Office.
Episode 23 in particular is one of the best TV episodes of all time. For those who made it through some/most of The Office (but couldn’t quite bring yourself to the finish), you at least have to watch Episode 23. It has some of the most emotional scenes in the entire series, while also wrapping up all the character arcs. Also, unlike many other TV show finales, there are no cliffhangers or unresolved storylines.
If you are trying to decide which episodes of The Office you want to rewatch on Netflix before it leaves for Peacock, definitely start from the last 3!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
