      I figured it would go one season without Carrell. I guess two is kind.

      I'll be watching The Mindy Project though. She wrote some of the funniest Office episodes.

      Other than football and once a while L & O, I've stopped watching NBC programming.

      When does this start?

      I hope it gets dark. I want to see the office explode with Jim running out on fire.

      I was surprised by how good this episode was. The intro was great. And Creed's bit was just downright amazing.

      I was watching, think "why is this still on?"

      I didn't know what to make of Creed's bit. Was it supposed to be funny or sad?

      A bit of both. I love Creed's lines, he doesn't get many a season but they're always great.

      I actually thought that this was a great turn around episode. should be interesting to see what happens with Jims midlife crisis it seems like he is going to have.

      I agree. I laughed a lot during this episode and have high hopes for a great last season.

      PS: Creed's scene was so awesome

      Luckily, her roll is more limited this season

      Observation: Pam is back to her hot-self this year.

      Catherine Tate is awesome and can do no wrong (a perk of being a Doctor Who companion for a season). Jenna is looking good again, and Ellie is still hot.

      This last episode was funny -- an improvement over the season premiere.

      Agreed, although I find brits in general on American television annoying.

      I really think they have hit thier stride again. Last nights episode was a really good one and the opening dwight prank was one of the best pranks i have seen for a few seasons!

      Dwight prank and the Game of Throne language thing was pretty good. Michelle Obama being Andy's relative is kinda hit and miss, and not a fan of the Brit lady...

      Agreed. I was really hating how the show had gone dark for so long.

      To harp on that brit again, I love that Andy hates her. The ridiculous tasks he puts her on like paper cut proof paper.

      Sad what this show has become. I keep watching because I feel pretty invested after watching for so long. The episodes since Andy has been on his boat have been pretty good, but I hate where they are going with this Brian guy. I still think the wedding should have been the last episode.

      I did crack up when they showed what that door by accounting is for. I remember that being a trivia question here when we did that.

      I still like it. There are laugh at loud moments. I enjoy watching this more than most newer sitcoms.

      I was thinking about Pam's situation and at first, I thought that she would in no way do something to cheat on Jim. But then again, she did kiss Jim while being engaged before. In the end, I doubt Pam will do anything with Brian.

      I think the show is funnier than ever and wish they spent less time keeping Steve Carrell on and going the route it has been. I literally will laugh through most of it when before I would just watch it because I was used to watching it.

      Yeah, the Michael Scott stuff was really burnt out at the end. Unfortunately, they tried to turn Andy into Michael 2.0. This season has been pretty good, but all the actors on Twitter are talking about this being the main story through the end. Ugh.

      Oh, well that's lame. I like when they concentrate on the side characters more- other than Oscar and Angela. Give me more Kevin and Creed.

      I read at the beginning of the season that they were going to involve the crew for the first time since the show is ending. Kind of tie all the pieces together.

      Andy is back in the next episode. Looks good.

      Wasn't Hangover 3 just filming? That's probably why Andy hasn't been around.

      I noticed that the last episode of The Office is called "The Farm", which is the title of the Rainn Wilson spinoff that's already been cancelled. Could be an interesting look into what could of been.

      Amazing how this show started out being somewhat centred around the boss and then that character left the show and the replacement character is absentee. Good thing they developed the rest of the cast.

      Wow, not really a fan where they've taken Pam and Jim. Jim is a totally different character and kind of weird they took him in this direction in the last season of the show. Andy coming back out of the blue and dropping the hammer on the staff and losing that account was aggravating to watch.

      They were going to make a Dwight Schrute spin-off? I would've watched that ...

      Could they have made Andy any more annoying? He was unwatchable. Jim's character sucks now too.

      Guess they decided to make it easy to not like this show as it is wrapping up.

      I don't have a problem with how Jim and Pam have evolved. I could imagine that happening to a lot of people in similar situations. But the key thing is the reconciled at the end of the episode. As Brian said about his relationship, they didn't even fight anymore. If Jim would have left that day without fighting, Pam & Jim would have been over as well.

      I like that we hated Andy as well. Picking up and leaving for 3 months is a real d-bag thing to do.
