Wow.

May 7th 2012

That cannot be for real, except I'm sure it is.

So sad.

May 7th 2012

I thought everyone liked last weeks? Where's David Wallace? Where's the good stuff?

harboring a secret plan

I'm pretty sure this covers the David Wallace stuff. Why he needs to dress up as a janitor is the part that bothers me. I haven't had many of my former co-workers ever try to sneak back into the company in disguise.

May 7th 2012

I don't think he'll be in disguise. He'll just get a job for the building (doesn't Dwight own it?) and then do some kind of subterfuge.

May 7th 2012

I'm also leaning towards disguise-free.

Oops, I guess I was just leaping to the most ridiculous conclusion given their track record this season.

May 7th 2012

An understandable leap.

I just realized something: This show has been bad longer than it was good.

May 8th 2012

Maybe it was never really good?

May 8th 2012

Then we have a lot of 'splainin' to do for the last six years.

May 8th 2012

Maybe it was? Maybe we're what's good?

May 9th 2012

So that's still going on, huh?

May 9th 2012

Not at my house...

May 10th 2012

Is this the season finale? I haven't seen the last few, but might watch this after Parks & Rec if it's the finale.

May 10th 2012

The timing is right. Casino Night was six years ago tomorrow. (Let that sink in a minute.) And this is episode 24. At last our long national nightmare is over.

May 10th 2012

Casino Night was six years ago tomorrow.

That's cruel.

May 10th 2012

This was...less than good.

Yeah, one brief glimpse of hope from last week and then straight back to terrible. Their break from reality seems complete.

This season was a complete and utter disaster. The only mildly redeeming feature was the stretch in Florida and that was merely tolerable as opposed to the unadulterated shit the rest was. Jim and Pam were ignored again for about the third season in a row and Hamnard occupied far too much time. Why Spader was brought aboard will be a mystery for the ages.

It's really strange to think that that this was the seaso finale, which dawned on me about halfway through this . . . thing. I always liked David Wallace so maybe he'll have a bigger part next year, since Mindy Kaling is doing her own sitcom and, I guess, Dwight's off to the beet farm?

Yes, very disappointing.

Dwight is also dragging Paul Lieberstein along with him so maybe the new showrunner will take a long look at this season to see what doesn't work.

The part about the paper company in Scranton didn't really work.

May 11th 2012

The moment with Darryl and Val at the photo shoot reminds me why I loved this show in the old days. Other than that...but I'll still watch the next season, I guess.

Its urban vibe? From the ghetto?

May 11th 2012

That moment would have worked better for me if they had done anything with that story in the last 8 episodes.

File this under "I'll believe it when I see it":

I hear the expectation is that the deal for The Office will close in time for NBC’s announcement. I also hear the order may be for 13 episodes.

The Office just isn't funny.

Good one! 6 years ago...
