Sometimes you just have to take a break from politics, ignore Donald Trump’s typo-ridden tweets, shut off CNN or MSNBC (That last one is a joke, calm down) and indulge in mindless entertainment. Right? Sure, we all do.
Anyway, ‘The Office,” the U.S. version, is without any shadow of a doubt, one of the best series in television history. If you don’t believe me, if you are unsure or disagree with my previous statement in the slightest, I will fight you! (Not really, but you get the idea.) Seriously, Steve Carell not winning an Emmy for his work as the iconic Michael Gary Scott is one of the biggest crimes of all time.
However, as much as I love watching Jim play hilarious pranks on the overly authoritative Dwight, Pam roll her eyes at the camera or Creed doing whatever it is exactly Creed does, it must stay in the past.
Recently, John Krasinksi (Jim) said he would love to come back and play the sardonic Jim again.

Krasinski’s willingness to revive his career-making character comes after Jenna Fischer (Pam) saying she was game as well. But, Pam and Jim, Dwight, Andy, Angela and Creed, you guys need to stay in the past or at least on Netflix.

The last two seasons – without Michael Scott – were not good. And it’s already been said that Carell wouldn’t be apart of any series reboot.
So knowing all of this, why would they bring it back? Yes, I understand Roseanne has been a massive hit and Will and Grace has been bringing in the ratings, but just leave The Office alone. The characters were given somewhat decent conclusions during the series finale.
The Office is a terrific, witty, hilarious show that only gets better with multiple viewings, but don’t bring it back, don’t ruin it. PLEASE!
