The Office: NBC Sitcom Says Goodbye; What Did You Think?

The Office series finaleTonight, NBC said goodbye to one of their most successful shows of the past eight years, The Office. After nine seasons, the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company has closed its doors.

The finale takes place a year after the documentary has aired and shows where everyone is in their lives. They come together for a special reunion Q & A session. Thanks to Jim, that coincides with Dwight’s very unique wedding to Angela. Jim was supposed to be Dwight’s best man for the ceremony but, at the last minute, he steps aside to make way for a special return guest.

In the final moments of the episode, the characters speak to the camera for one last time, thanking the documentary producers for the impact that the project has made on their lives. It’s not a stretch to imagine that the actors have similar feelings about the show and its viewers.

What did you think of the series finale? Was it a suitable way to end The Office? Did you feel like anything was missing? Did you watch the retrospective as well?

    This season was better than the dreadful 8th season, which made it only the second-worst season. When Steve Carrell showed up, said one line and generated more laughs than the previous two seasons without him, it was obvious how critical he was to the show. That being said, I enjoyed the format and the reflections of the characters in the finale. Too rarely do we get to see how characters “end up” when a series concludes.

    A good show early on, but not so in the mid to later years. I didn’t watch the end since I lost hope in it.

    Who was the Scranton strangler?? I was waiting for the very last scene to show it, but they never did!!!!

      I believe it was George Howard Skub, the man who was convicted. Toby had doubts but when he was nearly strangled by the guy in prison I think that confirmed that Skub was the Strangler.

        I still feel it was Toby and the whole reason he was strangled by Skub was because he told him who he was when they meet.

    If you ask me, the show was incredibly lame and should have been cancelled much sooner than it was. What I saw of it was pretty bad.
