TV Tidbits: "The Office" turns 10 and it reminds me how much I miss it

Published March 25, 2015

Why, oh why did "The Office" have to end? The series celebrated it's 10th anniversary and as I saw former cast members tweet about it, it reminded me just how much fun I had watching the series on a weekly basis for nine seasons. Before I start binging, however, there's plenty of news to share.
