Why was Season 1 so different than the rest?
Season 1 was not very good, not very funny, cringe worthy at times. This show, like the Office, had to figure things out before it became funny.
But, what exactly was different about season 1 compared to the rest? I noticed Leslie tries to be stupid like Michael Scott, where in further seasons she is smart, but overreaches and seems to get in over her head, which is funny.
