Season 1 sucked.

Season 2 is amazing. Craps on the best of the office, IMO. I meant to take it off of my DVR this summer and just left it on for accidently, really glad I did. Takse a couple of episodes to really take off but right now is clicking on all cylinders.

Anyone who has missed it thus far should catch up On Demand or online (again, season 1 was so Meh it hurts). LIke old school office, but w/ real comics running the show.

Prominent guest stars have included Louis C.K. and the dude from Arrested Development.

Only comedy on TV really worth watching at the moment that isn't a cartoon on FX called Archer (which is sheer genius).

The 1st season didn't do anything for me so I never watched again. Maybe i'll go download it. I'm a big Aziz Ansari fan too.

He's the only reason season 1 was barely watchable. I'm in the same boat as most; watched most of last year and was meh. Haven't seen every ep. this year but they have been better. The hunting episode was great near the beginning of the year.


As a side note: I just started watching Archer too. Hilarious. Been an H. John Benjamin voice fan since I caught a couple episodes of Home Movies with Coach McGurck.

Just got caught up on the whole show so far. Holy shit, after season 1 this gets great. I love everything to do with the library scenes, and DJ Roomba is perfection. Also, the episode Fancy Party had me pissing myself from laughing so hard. Best of the series so far. Can't wait to see how scary Tammy 1 is, if it even makes Tammy 2 run away in fear.

So... I still maintain that this season isn't as good as last (I'm really sick and tired of Amy and Ben drama, Chris is getting really really stale and I miss angry Aubrey Plaza), but the bowling alley interactions between Aziz and Offerman were some of the best comedy ever on TV.

I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard.

*and the show is still really good, not saying it isn't just feels like a more emotional repeat of last season at this point

Agree. It's definitely in a valley, but hopefully they can pull it out and hit some peaks with some new fresh storylines. One thing that has bugged me this season is it seems like they are going out of their way to cram the towns 'characters' into the show. They've created this Simpson's like town with all these individual characters, and bully for them as that's part of the shows charm, but in past seasons it seems like this felt like a natural progression of the storylines. This season it feels a lot more forced. It loses some of it's interest that way. Don't know, just my opinion.
