Was that the first time Creed said anything substantial in the last few seasons? I thought his bit at the end was the best part of the episode.

The Office felt big tonight, more than it has in a while. Stuff is happening. They actually talked to the documentary guys, Jim took a major step in leaving Dunder Mifflin, Oscar is having an affair with Angela's husband, and they wrote off Kelly and Ryan. Gabe seems to be gone too, which is fine by me. Clark (Duke) and uh, Jim #2 (I already forgot his name) were pretty good new additions, and humiliating Nellie is a fine way to go with that character. I also liked Michael finally being mentioned and Andy inheriting his hatred of Toby. Kevin killing the turtle was pretty cringe-worthy (it broke Bill Maher's patience with the show (twitter.com)) but I thought Dwight nearly killing himself was funny. Overall, I wish the episode was funnier, at least for my tastes, but I appreciate the concerted launch out of the gate towards The End.

What did you think?

It is setting up the end of the show perfectly. From Pam asking the camera guys if they had enough already, to Jim taking the new job and to Andy being more of a boss and Creed slowly going insane, it has started the end on the right foot.

Gabe from last season was spending time between Florida and Scranton. I am guessing it the same.

I am in for the last season.

Great episode.

I can take a half dozen more episodes with Catherine Tate is they're gonna fuck with her like this.

Lots of funny stuff and just the hint of drama around the corner.

Overall the show served its purpose. It had its moments that got a chuckle out of me.

Having Pam LITERALLY say "our lives aren't going to change!" and Jim make a wistful face, combined with Jim literally saying that line about Plop being 'the new Jim' was some damn lazy writing. Way to spell things out for us, Office.

Clark and Pete! Just think of Clarke Peters and you'll never forget. (Tremé returns SUNDAY!)

If Dwight isn't the father, then who is? Don't say the Senator 'cause I won't believe it.

I kept wondering if Darryl and Clark recognized each other from Hot Tub Time Machine.

Seeing them take of the mics and hand them to the documentary crew was just ....jarring. Definitely makes me wonder where they are going with it.

I thought it was a good start to the last season. I watched with my admittedly easy to entertain teenage sons and we thought Dwight on the slack line falling 20 times and getting bloodied was hilarious.



Once again, I have blown away my signature's tags and it's up to CRZ to fix them before the entire board disappears. I don't know I continue have to have this green background if I'm not going to properly mantain it!

Gabe is too busy running for VP with Romney.

(If he was a Sabre employee and they don't own D-M anymore, I figure he's gone for that reason.)

I know everyone hated Nellie but everyone's just gonna pick on her all the time now?

I thought this was pretty good. The DC Comics in jokes were appropriately hardcore. The running gag of Aquaman being humiliated by the JLA and seeking revenge by joining the Legion of Doom was okay, pretty much what you expect.
