Safe From The Shark

You know the expression "Jump the Shark"?

If not, the website says:
"Q. What is jumping the shark?
A. It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite television program has reached its peak. That instant that you know from now's all downhill. Some call it the climax. We call it "Jumping the Shark." From that moment on, the program will simply never be the same.

The term "jump the shark" was coined by site founder Jon Hein's college roommate of 4 years, Sean J. Connolly, in Ann Arbor, Michigan back in 1985. This web site, book, film, and all other material surrounding shark jumping, are hereby dedicated to "the Colonel."

The aforementioned expression refers to the telltale sign of the demise of Happy Days, our favorite example, when Fonzie actually "jumped the shark." The rest is history."

Well, here's the Office page. Not close to jumping. PHEW! We will put a link button to it on The Branch Office though so we can keep track of it!

If Office would have jumped the shark - what's your reason it would have?
