The Office Finale: Who’s The Boss?

I have to say The office is holding up well without Steve Carell. It is very smart of the show writers not to hold off his exit till the finale.Because if they did a lot of people wont tune in for the nest season .This way people got a chance to see what the show looks like without the male lead.

The episode started with Creed as manager and it was hilarious, his character always seemed in the background and now it is shining. The show’s strong point is this :everyone is talented and funny. The contenders were all funny, I loved the guest stars they were funny but not too much in the spotlight. Jim Carry was just weird, James Spader was the creepy genius (who had the best quotes in the episode),Will Arent was confrontational without a cause , Ray Romano was on the verge of suicidal (and most funny) and Dr.Who’s Catherine Tate who I thought was a perfect fit. she was the right amount of crazy. Of course the in-house contenders were Andy and Darell.

Andy was very eager to get the job and i think he’ll be a good fit, let me take a minute to talk about the outfit.What was that ??? the colors were crazy. Did he get dressed in the dark? on a different note he refused a date with Erin.

The hour long episode was flat out funny, some would argue that the Dwight Schrute character is too much but I have always been a fan so I want more Dwight. Angela got engaged to “the senator” and in the midst of all her bragging I wanted someone to shout out :HE IS GAY !!!!!!!

Finally, I feel like the perfect candidate did not apply; Pam was the perfect manager she knows everybody and knows how to handle them. I would’ve liked to see her as manager though she might conflict with Jim who slacks off at times. I hate that the writers left us hanging not knowing who is the the new “Boss”, my guess is Catherine Tate.

Wish for next season : give B.J Novak and Mindy Kaling  more air time they are both very funny given the chance to shine.

    No, sorry, I just think she was the worst of the options. Spader is probably the best of the outsiders. His creepy genius thing could play well in a long term rivalry with Dwight. And of course the problem with all of the outsiders is that the season premiere won’t have any surprise, as everybody will know when Spader et. al. signs a contract this summer.

    Of the insiders, either pick Andy who would be somewhat similar to Michael Scott in being a salesman in way over his head as a manager, or keep Creed (someone on the fringes of society – like a homeless person) in there and give him the exposure he deserves.
