I've never, ever been a sitcom watcher; in fact I have a mostly-bitter relationship with TV on the whole. But I love The Office. Why? Here's my top five list of reasons:
(1) Jim and Pam
(2) Jim and Pam
(3) Jim and Pam
(4) Jim and Pam
(5) Dwight's hilarious attitude and lines, the amazingly well-played stock characters, the fact that it's good clean PG-13 fun most of the time, the clever twists and turns, and Jim and PamOK, specifically, I like the patient, lighthearted, friendship nature of Jim and Pam's relationship. Jim even calls it a courtship in the Fourth Season finale. But I guess this may be more pernicious than I realize--a seemingly-healthy courtship, but the show takes for granted that they're hopping in the sack (Pam says at least once that she slept over). Oh what's wrong with the world?
Anyway, my husband and I will be savoring every second tomorrow night.
