Binge watching the office

I've seen episodes here and there, but I'm binge watching the show right now and am on season 2.

I have to say, some of Michael Scotts behavior is more cringeworthy than funny. Him and Jan, that is pretty sad at times.

I wonder if that was intentional or not. Were they going for cringeworthy or going for funny.

Also Jim is a dick. Always smirking at everyone else's awkwardness.

From what I've seen of it, I think I liked it better in the middle and later seasons.

I re-watched the entire run last summer. The show doesn't hit its stride until the middle of season 2 IMHO. Michael's behavior was definitely cringeworthty--well, he was inspired by David Brent, wasn't he? I can see how you might see Jim as being a dick, but he was nothing compared to Todd Packer--I hated that guy!
