    I understand you’re a big ‘Office’ fan but come on. Also, I understand you watch way more dramas than comedies but the second season of Glee to make your top ten is very telling.

    The seventh season of The Office was the best season for the show since the third and one of the three for the show in its top tier.  None of its other seasons are in my list above.  We all know that Glee is atrocious, but I think that Girls was next in line and that is a show that I like more because of its competition and less on my enjoyment of the show in absolute terms.  I decided instead to go for something that I had been at times more passionate about, although only once long enough to grade an episode above the B-range.  I have seen dozens of episodes of each of Modern Family, Louie and 30 Rock and enough episodes of Parks and Recreation, Archer and Veep to know that those shows do not do it for me.  Maybe Community could have edged out Glee if I had seen more of it because although I have not found it extremely funny, it might have gotten enough points for its ambition.  I do watch way more dramas than comedies, but even if I had seen those shows in their entireties, they would not likely be making my top ten.  I regret that I have not seen Party Down and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia or enough of South Park and Bob’s Burgers.

    Your taste in TV comedy has always come off whether random but oh well. I still think it’s best to watch a show, even a comedy, from the beginning (or at least beginning of seasons) instead of watching random episodes. It’s not as important to do as it is with dramas. Yet, for example, the American version of The Office didn’t much for me until I committed to watching a good stretch of episodes. Same thing for Community, Parks and Rec and Loiue. Watching a show’s sense of humor, its perspective and its characters evolve can’t be underrated. 

    I must admit I stopped watching The Office regularly after season six. Three straight middling seasons after witnessing the greatness of seasons two and three were enough. So, it’s hard for me to imagine it being anywhere near the best season of comedy for the last five years. Then again, 30 Rock found its way after several iffy seasons. Maybe I’ll give that season a visit.
