Idiot Box: The Office

I know I'm not the only one who says this, but The Office is the funniest show on television. Hands down. I will not argue about this. While other TV shows spend their time rehashing the jokes that have been played out on sitcoms for years, The Office manages to find a whole new set of jokes that no one has seen before. The genius of the show is that they've been able to effectively attack and make fun of our PC society. If we didn't live in a PC world this show could not exist. In fact, it wouldn't have been successful before 20 years ago, and I think that is a sign of its greatness. A great television comedy should be funny in the time that it exists and find its comedy from the morals and values of the time that it exists in. The Office does that like no other show on television.

All hail Michael Scott.
