The Office 9 Seasons 2012

Season 8
4.1 out of 5 stars (257) IMDb 8.8/10

Inappropriate remarks, petty behavior, zero productivity -- you can change the boss, but you can't change the office. Season 8 of the hit comedy series promises to be the most interesting yet as the beloved cast keeps Dunder Mifflin moving in a world (and office building) without Michael Scott. Office politics mix with old friendships and new rivalries as James Spader joins the cast as Sabre CEO Robert California. But everyone is still wondering the same thing: who is going to be the new manager? Nobody knows, but with the likes of Dwight, Jim, Darryl, Andy and a whole slew of surprise contenders involved, this power struggle promises to be NSFW (Not Safe For Work).

Don't get me wrong, The Office isn't what it used to be, and Steve Carell's departure has hurt this flailing show taking everything into consideration. But it's too easy to point the finger at Catherine Tate and James Spader as reasons that this season was sub-par by Office standards and average by most other TV comedy standards. The fact is James Spader and Catherine Tate as Robert California and Nellie Bertram were actually continually funny throughout the season to me. And why that's so is because both of those characters are absolutely insane. That was the main ingrediant to what made the show head and shoulders above anything before it when it first started. It also had a compelling love story with Jim and Pam and besides those two characters pretty much everyone else was either completely bonkers and had some odd quirks. As the show has progressed, those characters were either toned down or became charicatures of themselves and the enduring love story has become painfully boring.

The main problem as any die hard Office fan knows stems from the writing. Andy was my favorite character and in a strange stroke of misfortune for me as a viewer Ed Helms became famous which meant the writers felt compelled to make Andy Bernard more like Stu Price. But what made Andy funny was that for the most part we used to laugh at him now we are supposed to laugh with him. The writers tried to shoehorn an upper class jerk with anger issues into a relatable character. In doing so we are basically supposed to forget who he used to be. I have been alternating watching season 3 and season 8 recently and the Andy of season 3 is a completely different person than the Andy of season 8. Real people don't change as much in 5 years as Andy has on this show, so why do the writers think we should accept this...

This is the first season after Steve Carell left, and the show was getting ever the more ridiculous with its premises, plots, and new characters (plus some existing characters, *cough* Andy *cough*, that are in rare form this season to be extra annoying). If you have been watching from season 1 you should absolutely see it all the way through to the end, but just be prepared for continually waning quality with this particular season. There are definitely some good moments here and there that were reminiscent of the earlier seasons, but unfortunately they are few and far between. Also, after Steve left (if you were watching it with the authority of the Zeitgeist) you were probably like me and judged the final two seasons rather harshly after his departure near the end of season 7. That being said however, watching it again years later I did not have near those same feelings, and actually liked it better the 2nd time around.

It took a long time, but I finally watched it. After all these years, I finally decided it was time to watch this show again and finish it. I stopped watching it because I knew Steve Carell left the show, and heard this show wasn't as good anymore.

But now, I got some extra time and decided to finishing seeing Season 8 and 9 and let this series end for me. Well, I thought season 8, wasn't that bad, in fact, it was good! It wasn't great or excellent because I felt that something was missing. It didn't take me hold and kept me there as it used to. I know Micheal isn't there anymore, but that wasn't it. The series has gone down since the Jim and Pam thing is pretty much died. They're married and have a child, wait make that a child and half. She pregnant and that wasn't really a story that I cared for. Jim has a slight spark interest beside Pam since she left and she give her job to a temp, but Jim was very slight interest in the temp, but clearly he didn't want to do anything with her and I thought that would had made a good story line I could had liked.

Other things that happened this season was that Andy became the main character of the story because he is now the manager and the CEO is Robert California. The whole season is about them fighting and working together. Some more things would be that Erin still loves Andy but Andy has another girlfriend, but still likes/loves Aaron as well. That was probably the most interesting thing I liked this season. I didn't really care about the story with Darryl and Val. Dwright wasn't as funny this seaon and the rest of the cast just were there, and weren't that big of a deal anymore.

Also, this series introduces Nellie Bertram, the Special Projects Manager. Her story was the second favorite this season.

I had seen many mixed reviews about this, but I was 7 seasons deep and there was no going back. lol. I mostly enjoyed the series from the first episode. Robert C. adds a strange yet likeable mix to the series. Many characters got a nice leg up and chance to shine, like Stanley and Gabe. A few other characters were a bit less noteworthy. Overall it was a good watch, I can't complain.

As much as I disliked Season 6 of The Office, in retrospect it was better than Season 8. Before the season began, we were told that because Michael Scott was no longer around the show was going to focus on the ensemble more. Instead we were fed a steady diet of Andy as the manager and his conflicts with Robert California (James Spadar) as CEO. This dull note was hit repeatedly leading to a series of repetitive episodes where Andy feels inadequate and the staff reassures him. The problem was that Andy has always been a buffoonish character and trying to shoehorn him into the central role didn't work. Couple that with the tiresome Andy/Erin relationship which had been stumbling around for three seasons without any real direction or coherence and we got a giant dose of Andy that no one wanted to see.

While Michael Scott may have been the comedic driver of the show through Season 7, it was the reactions of the rest of the cast, and especially Jim and Pam, which gave the show its emotional resonance. Now, Jim and Pam are given virtually nothing to do and the rest of the characters have been reduced to single note punch lines. John Krasinski should sue over the lack of forward motion for Jim. Jenna Fischer was also neglected this year, but some of that can be ascribed to her real life pregnancy. The treatment of the rest of the cast has been just as thoughtless. Kevin and Erin appear to be competing for some sort of stupidity award in which they barely seem like functional adults. This was especially problematic for Erin given that we were supposed to care about her romantic chances with Andy, but it mostly felt like a teenager mooning over her teacher. Stanley, Oscar and Meredith once again got little to no screen time.
