Normally, I would start off with a creative introduction…generally working into a description and a call to action.
But in this case, I must avoid doing anything of the creative sort. I know I said my blog about summer films would be my last for the semester, but after watching the latest episode of “The Office” (and rightfully tearing up), I say one more.
This episode was fantastic. I do not want to go into too much detail, for those who are still getting caught up on the series or those who have yet to watch the episode, but it closed the chapter on an Office favorite (Michael Scott).
Sorry, if you watched NBC in the past week, you saw the promos.
Following the broadcast, the network informed viewers that there were only three episodes left, and with the departure of current interim general manager Will Ferrell planned in the coming episodes, the stage is set for a cavalcade of potential replacements.
Ed Helms, Rainn Wilson and (ISU alum) Craig Robinson have been rumored for in-house promotion.
As much as I love “The Office,” it will never be the same without Michael Scott. These last three episodes are going to be a bitch to watch knowing Steve Carell will not insert a little “that’s what she said” quip or introduce a little awkward drama between himself and Pam (Jenna Fischer), and although the majority of the cast are signed on for another season, I believe the show should just end.
It should. If it continues, it’s based merely on a business standpoint. I hope NBC officials can understand how dumb they will look when they continue the show and everyone stops watching.
For example, when “Scrubs” ended its eighth season, the series was deemed complete…but ABC wanted something different, and so ordered a ninth season of the show.
Did the season last the full length? It did not.
Leave your thoughts below.
Laters on the menjay.
