Yes, but the same can be said for any sitcom that has run long enough. It's not like "Lost", where you really would have no clue, if you hadn't seen season one. If I had to start now, I wouldn't bother watching The Office chronologically, but I would make sure I see all episodes eventually, it's really funny.You *definitely* want to go back. There are lots of story lines (in the past) that help to explain the present character interactions, to say nothing of running-gag type things.
Yeah i go from season1 and you should check out the UKThe Office which i think was better.What's the best way to start watching? Do we have to go right back to the first episode? If not, where else is it best to start?
