You can make the argument that, more often than not, when friends tell you how great a series has become it turns out not to be true. But, to be fair, your friends did not take the time to provide you this information in a slideshow presentation.
I'm just saying… if Whitney really was that great, maybe they would have tried harder to tell you so. Or at least used visual aids. But they didn't. And do you know why? Because it's not true. Whitney isn't that great – but The Office is. It really is! So go check it out.
… and if I'm wrong, you'll know never to trust a man with a slideshow. Which, if we're being honest, is probably a good rule to follow anyway.
