This is personal preference so different people have different reactions. For me, the office has never been a feel good comedy. It shines when it is cringy and uncomfortable. Sure there are heartwarming moments here and there but that is not it’s forte. Too much of it and it becomes Parks and Rec (which I also love). Parks and Rec is where they did a lot of that. People are very nice to each other and villains were external to the group. In office they are not even good friends let alone a close knit family most of the times and that is what I like about the office.


I quite literally can not hear the name Justin without thinking “just in time” in my mind.


you're right, I also fast forward through many of the scenes in this episode
