Really the season before he leaves sucks too
Seasons 1-4 are great
5-6 are eh
In my opinion.
jimwilbourne said:that holds for most shows that last past 6 seasons.
however, I felt like The Office actually did a pretty good job of not getting too stale in the second half of their run.
I also feel like the idea of "seasons" is what kills shows as well.
you stop watching a show for 4-10 months and you come back to it realizing that you've grown out of it.
