Does anyone else wish they would ditch the pit?

    Honestly, I enjoy the cast of this series and find the office relationships it explores to be fairly funny and interesting but to me the whole series is getting held down by this ridiculous and ongoing pit assignment that they are all on. Could you imagine if The Office spent more than 6 weeks working on a single paper sale? Part of the fun of an office based series is that there are lots of tasks arising for the characters to deal with each week. Grounding the whole thing to the pit (and inane gags about various characters falling into it) seems to me to be holding back a decent cast from tackling fresh weekly material of a more interesting variety.

    I think season 2 deals with another problem, and I'm guessing each season will deal with some new issue or 2 as the main plot. The Pit was annoying but the show was only a few episodes. I'm not even sure if I'll watch this season.
