The first three seasons of this were brilliant IMO. Starting as early as season 4 though, I thought it started going downhill quickly and I stopped watching at some point in season 5 I think.

One thing I'm curious about though is what the writers did with Jim and Pam. The tension between them was obviously a major draw in the first few seasons, and when they finally got together and got engaged, they were built up as the perfect couple that would never split. Did the writers ever do anything interesting with their characters? Starting in season 4 and carrying through into the 9th season now, constantly reinforcing that relationship has to get pretty stale. And did they focus too much on the relationship and not let them stand on their own two feet as characters?
