So I’ve been watching The Office nonstop for the last 2 months and I’ve managed to get to season 7. Do I like The Office? Yes! Did I like The Office 7 seasons ago? No!
Season 1 of The Office was unbearable for me. Michael Scott was the most incompetent, childish, attention seeking boss I’d ever seen. I absolutely hated him. I found his jokes unfunny and I began to question Steve Carell’s values for taking on such a role. By season 3 he had started to grow on me. There were rare moments where I found him charming, but most of the time I felt pity for him and dislike.
Through his turbulent relationship with Jan I began to see Micheal for who he really is. A man who just wanted to be loved. By season 7, he had become a character I could relate to. There are other characters that I love and have loved since season 1, but Michael was the most drastic change for me, in terms of my opinion of him. I still have a few more seasons to go but I’m excited to see where the show goes.
Congrats Steve Carell for playing the role so well!
Thank you for reading.
