Early Pam was sweet, a little shy, friendly, nice, and quietly devious.
Later Pam is louder, blunter, and pretty unrecognizeable. Last episode, she stole from the company by pretending to have been given a snazzy, higher-paying job title. In season five, she flirted heavily with Michael to get new chairs, rather than a printer. She's been doing a little less scheming with Jim.
We understand that because Pam is with Jim and not Roy, she is going to have more confidence and self-esteem. But should this growth translate in to her being a little bit of a shrill, spoiled brat?
We want the old Pam back. If you don't believe us that there is that much of a difference, watch last week's episode, then watch any episode from seasons 1-4.
