It may have been over five years since the U.S. version of The Office came to a close (or seven years, if you'd rather ignore the final two seasons), and yet the show remains massively popular. In fact, thanks to Netflix, it may be even more popular now than when it was actually on the air.
The show is one of the best sitcoms of the last 20 years, but what really helps its popularity is just how damn rewatchable it is. There are enough episodes to ensure that it doesn't grow stale, and spending time with the characters is simply a joy thanks to the winning mix of heartwarming relationships and cringe comedy the series perfected over its first few seasons.
Rewatching offers other advantages too though. It's not just great to see Jim and Pam fall in love all over again, laugh at Michael's behaviour, cry at his exit, and enjoy the multitude of pranks, but the show is packed full of small yet brilliant details that you're likely to miss first time around. Because of that, there's always a reason to come again. And that's what she said.
