This past week we received some closure in the 9 year running of the US show The Office. I have to say (no spoilers) that the outcome of the finale was much more rewarding than many of the other closings for shows I have seen. From the early moments of season 1 & 2 where we met Michael Scott, Dwight, Jim, Pam, Oscar, Angela, Kevin, Creed, and the rest of the gang it has been a wild ride.
If you have never seen the show consider picking it up on Netflix/Hulu Plus but be ready for those moments when you feel anxious for Michael as he tries so hard to be “The Worlds Best Boss” a joke referenced in almost the entire series. My special favorites are “Diversity Day” (or how not to do Diversity Day), “Basketball,” “The Merger,” “Weightloss,” “Golden Ticket,” “Michael Scott Paper Company,” “Scott’s Tots,” “Goodbye Michael”, and “Search Committee”
It must be said that when Michael Scott (Steve Carell) left the show after Season 7 things slowed down and the show took a different turn focusing more on the lives of the different characters outside of work.
Things we learned from the office:
Best Office Pranks (Jello stapler, fake desk, etc)
It takes courage to be real with others and it can often hurt
Paper as boring as it may seem is inherently interesting when surrounded by cameras
Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
Follow your dreams
It was fun while it lasted… That what she said.
