Parks and Recreation has heart, something that The Office, aside from Jim and Pam (and occasionally Oscar) lacks.
That's interesting. I never saw Oscar as having heart. He always seemed kind of detached and/or cynical to me, even when he does something nice (like to Angela recently).
For me Oscar is my favorite and has "heart" simply because he's the most normal person in the office. Jim and Pam are normal but their romance is a little too sappy for reality. Oscar, on the other hand, often says what the audience (or at least me) is thinking and isn't an exaggeration like many of the other characters. Go Oscar!
