The Final Office Update

THE FINAL OFFICE UPDATE….I won’t bore you with all the gritty details, but yesterday I ended up buying The Office box set, so I now own all 12 episodes and can watch the reunion special as well (unavailable from any of my local video stores). It’s like an itch that demands scratching, isn’t it?

Anyway, I just thought I’d mention that if you don’t “get” The Office, John Micklethwait and Adrian Wooldridge explain why in the LA Times today. I don’t know if they’re really right about this, but they seem to be on the right track.
