The Office Season 7 - 5 out of 5
|I don't know what's going on here but I'm in!|
|Timothy Olyphant shows up this season. Reoccurring character?|
|Creepy or arousing? Creepy is the answer to that question. If you said arousing, you are creepy.|
That is until Steve Carrell announced he would be leaving the show.
I'm a big fan of Carrell. I think he's incredibly talented and extremely funny. He made the character of Michael Scott an icon--to the point they tried to re-create him as a female in Parks and Recreation. However, as the silver screen called, Carrell began to take more movie roles and the confines of The Office just got too small for him. Buy hey, we all knew this day would eventually come. I just think myself and other fans of the show were in denial about it happening.
|Finally Ricky Gervais makes a cameo!|
|I know some people hate Zach Woods as Gabe but I think he's funny. He was great in In the Loop.|
Then came the overabundance of Dwight K. Schrute.
I always thought Dwight was hilarious and his relationship with Jim and Michael made for great TV but as the seasons continued, he started to become an overly predictable character. When the show started, he was a wild card, you never knew what would come out of his mouth next and then he suddenly became this self-made cliche and nothing he said was humorous or unique to me anymore. However, Michael and many of the background characters kept me watching the show and, although I thought the episode where Jim and Pam tie the knot was just awesome, I found myself accepting the fact that the show would never be as good as it was when it started. It's hard to keep up that level of quality.
|Where will Toby be without Michael?|
|Kevin is one of my favorite characters.|
|Little known fact, when you swear in real life, your mouth really does pixelate.|
|I will have to steal Michael's proposal. First, I must find|
a girl willing to marry me...
|Meet Michael's replacement...James Spader.|
|Plenty of great candidates interviewed for Michael Scott's position.|
|Kathy Bates is great as Jo. Would have liked to see more of her.|
I leave you now with a clip of the gang's goodbye to Michael...
