It'll grow on you
14 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

DKOSTY; This show is not really one you can start watching beginning with the 5th season. It has a lot of inter-office politics, jokes that have a foundation on the other seasons, dry sarcastic wit and over-the-top inappropriateness (part of a few actor's characters) and especially jokes that are only understood if you understand the characters. "That guy that started the fire" is supposed to come off as a total idiot. That's his character. It's true this show has a lot of subtle humor and the style is not for everyone, but I hope you give it a chance because it's just the kind of show that will grow on you if you do.
