Still a good season,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Office: Season 8 (DVD)
I starting watching the show in 2005 and Seasons 2-4 are amongst the most hilarious TV moments ever (IMHO). Who would not want their own office to be a social comic freak show like that anyways.
While Season 7 was still a little bit reminiscent of how it all began, Season 8 's focus is more on Andy and his attempt to deal with the typical everyday office mayhem. The rest of the characters is still strong and I liked the old time suspense of some episodes, story lines arching over but still not like the earlier seasons. All in all the feel of it all did meet my expectations in terms of crude jokes, punchlines below the waistline at times and some silly character moments included. The mock interview sections are at a bare minimum - my real favorite moments. The mockumentary style is almost gone though.
I still think it's a must for all die hard The Office fans - if you love Steve Carell and his Michael Scott impersonation that stay away or you will be disappointed. But your still in for a good old long ride (That's what she said or something like that...).
