re: What Shows Are You Watching?

Parks and Rec is a spinoff of The Office. P&R is hilarious, after a so-so first season it's really hit it's stride.

Something is lacking with this season of The Office. It just seems forced.

I'll have to start watching P&R it seems. Thursday nights is basically FlashForward (though I usually watch that on Fridays) and 30 Rock.

30 Rock's been slipping, I think Modern Family has surpassed it

i agree the office has gone downhill big time. i've only watched parks and rec a few times but found it pretty refreshing, although it wasnt that different from the office. community is generally hilarious, although last nights episode wasn't even remotely funny.

flashforward it horrible. competely and utterly horrible.

maybe its an acquired taste or something. generally, its the show i look forward to most on thursday nights (due to the office and 30 rock being pretty weak of late).

+1. I stopped watching 30 Rock last season. Modern Family is smart, funny and well-paced. The dad cracks me up every time.

It took a few shows for it to finally find its voice... but the writing is phenomenal and the casting is perfect. Agreed with the poster who mentioned Ahbed- the character has Asperger's and he absolutely nails it.

That bothers me too. Shows and concepts have just gotten a bit ridiculous. Another good example of a show that I don't really enjoy that people seem to love is It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, just a bit too over the top.

I think the office has been so weak lately because they have cut the episodes to half an hour. Earlier season's had more hour long episodes allowing for the show to actually have a plot.

re: What Shows Are You Watching?

Were there actual funny scenes or was it just as awkward?

I think the last two episodes have been pretty funny. The couple episodes before were about the company that bought out dunder mifflin and they were kind of depressing.

Okay the one that I watched the other day (I don't know if it was an older one or what) the younger couple were leaving and the chick thought that she was getting proposed to when the guy kneeled down to tie his shoe. That was the only thing that was even amusing to me.

Are they all like that? I've watched a couple of other episodes (one shortly after it came out) and another recent one (though it may have been older replays on TBS or something) and didn't like it at all. The other recent one (I think it was another episode) they detained the pizza delivery boy because he wouldn't honor the coupon on all of the pizzas or something.

Yeah the episode you are talking about was from 2 seasons ago. I think it's one of those shows where you have to watch it from the beginning so you can follow along with the plot.
