‘The Office’ Is Like An Old Friend … But Then We Hooked Up

After a long day, I love coming home, putting on Netflix, and putting on an episode of The Office. I’ve seen the whole series dozens of times, and watching the antics of Michael, Dwight, Jim, and Pam literally feels like hanging out with an old friend. But the other night, I might’ve done something to jeopardize that friendship. I … well … I hooked up with The Office.

This is no excuse, but I had been drinking, and when I put on The Office that night … I don’t know, I just started thinking about how I knew it would always be there for me. But even in my haze, I knew something was off. I wasn’t really in love with The Office. Not the way I was with Lost. I woke up to a particularly bad episode from season eight, told The Office I had to get to work, and got out of there. When I came home, my battery was dead. I didn’t want to hurt The Office‘s feelings by closing my Netflix window. Cowardly, I know.

This sucks. What I did to The Office totally sucks.

The Office has always been a show I liked a lot, but it’s not one of my favorite shows. I just don’t feel it. I tried! I imagined myself with The Office—maybe I’d start a Tumblr page full of Jim and Pam gifs, tell people at parties that it was my favorite show, dress up as Prison Mike for Halloween—but with every Andy storyline, I’m reminded that, even during the worst episodes of Lost, I was still riveted. I didn’t feel like I had to blog about my theories; I wanted to blog about my theories. I just don’t think me and The Office can get there.

I don’t know what to do. Do I have to cancel Netflix? I mean, The Office is acting really desperate. My “Recommended For You” section is just the season two episode “Casino Night” over and over again.

This is really bad.
