Why would you want to watch it, though? I mean, I feel like this kind of comedy thrives on second hand embarrassment, so I guess I wonder what you'd watch it for? (I can't watch it either, not anything similar).

They might have friends who are into it? Or even just feeling kind of left out that other people obviously enjoy that kind of humor and they don't. Like wishing you could eat cheese when you're allergic to dairy.

It just seems so tiring watching something you dislike because of friends.

nayrt - Well, if they could manage their secondhand embarrassment enough to watch the show, maybe they'd enjoy it.

But honestly it seems weird you'd even need to ask why anyone might not want to be left out of a popular fandom. It might not bother you, but it's not difficult to see why it might bother others.

To be fair, it's pretty bad second-hand embarrassment, particularly in the first season. It gets a little better later (before the show got bad).

See, I had this issue with a lot of the show's humor but there are different kinds of humor with different characters which is why I stuck it out. And around where I am (season 2/3) a lot of the jokes seem less harsh, just because there's a warmth between a lot of the characters, as nonsensical as that affection may be when their boss is such a clueless dick.

This sums it up really well I think.

Why can't you watch it? (I can't because of the lack of laugh track.)

who the hell actually -likes- laugh tracks

Slow verbal processing FTW! It gives my brain "this is a joke" cues, and allows me to keep up with the dialogue without my brain freaking out.

I really like laugh tracks when they're executed well

Unfortunately I don't think anyone's executed them well for like 15 years, but they genuinely add a great energy when they're done well

Honestly I dislike comedy to begin with, and the whole office setting makes me want to kill things..

Sometimes people like keeping up with popular shows so they can understand all the pop culture references people make. It's pretty common, actually.

How utterly dreadful.
