The US Office: 10 Worst Episodes

Well, well. How the turn tables...


The US Office: it's been an unforgettable ride with one or two twists and turns but ultimately left us all satisfied with big smiles on our faces when it finally came to an end. BOOM! THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!

This hilarious comedy series starring the likes of Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson and Jenna Fischer, racked up a total of 9 seasons, 201 episodes and a running time of over 4,020 minutes (that's like watching Die Hard 31 times). From 2005 to 2013, the lovable idiots from Scranton (The Electric City!) delivered some of the funniest moments in TV from the last 15 years and is undoubtedly the greatest mockumentary series ever made (sorry Parks and Rec, but it was a close call).

Despite the series' legendary status, it's only natural that in 201 episodes, a few of them ended up like Toby Flenderson: pointless, frustrating and just plain dull. This list will take a closer look at the times the series dipped post-Carrel, the bottle episodes that were painfully slow paced and the time that a once hilarious recurring guest star turned into a bigger annoyance than Jan's singing voice.

So grab a tasty beet to snack on, put on the sweet tunes of Here Comes Treble and read on for the times The US Office fell short of its own staggeringly high bar.
