Farewell to 'The Office'
I just finished watching the series finale of The Office. It was a pretty good wrap up of the show, regardless of people constantly bitching that the show has gone downhill. What show doesn't go downhill? The only show I can think of is possibly Seinfeld. I don't think the past two seasons have been all that bad. It has had its hits and misses. They have been true to the characters (except for maybe Andy) and that is what is important. However, I feel like in the finale Steve Carell was treated more as a prop than a character. He had like two lines through the whole thing. I'm sure Carell was busy but it was dumb to treat him as second banana. It would have been better to not have him at all. Other than that it was an emotional and well-written close to a wonderful series. So long, Office. Now there are only two decent shows left on television. You will be missed.
