Coming across this website that finds linear regressions and graphs TV show episodes, I typed in a show I used to watch in my undergrad: The Office. Here’s what the chart looks like:

You might notice that there is a little outlier in yellow for season six; this was a clip episode. Apparently, in comedy show history, the clip episode/clip show is a throw-back to when folks couldn’t use Netflix to watch a show and gave a comedic update. By the time the office was around, and IMDB was there to judge it, clip episodes seemed to be a bad idea, or at least how The Office did it.

So, I thought, even though it’s against convention, I’d do a clip episode to tie together all the articles that I’ve written in the last year.
