Even though this is a shell of what it used to be, I'll still miss this show. :sad:

I miss what it once was and will miss the fact I don't have a "must see" sitcom every week anymore. This is the only comedy I've felt compelled to watch on a weekly basis.

I hope it at least goes out in class tonight.

This is the only comedy I stuck with other than Seinfeld... I'll really miss it. The early years were the best comedy on TV maybe ever.

Finally.

Been watching this show since Day 1 (I remember downloading the pilot months before NBC aired it).

Prediction: Michael Scott's cameo will be as a guest at Dwight's wedding.

As he should be. I'm surprised Dwight didn't mention him more through the years he was gone. Just saying he talked to him or visited him etc.

Need some help.

Haven't watched much for the past two to three seasons, (basically sometime during Robert California reign), but did watch the recent ep. "Living the Dream" and have some idea what has gone on.

However, I do have questions.
  • what happened to Robert California?
  • why is Angela homeless?
  • Who was the girl kissing Dwight when he got the manager job?
  • What happened with Andy and Erin?
  • Anything major happen to the next tier of characters?

Hopefully that isn't too much. And thanks.

This. I've been watching since day 1 so I'm fairly excited for this. And I know I'm in the minority, but aside from the Jim / Pam storyline I think these last two seasons have been fairly strong. I'm sad to see it go...but its time.

1. David Wallace purchased Dunder Miflin, he fired Robert California and replaced him with Andy.

2. She divorced the rich senator because he came out as gay and she became an emotional mess. Got evicted from the apartment she lived in because of all her cats.

3. A distant relative of his (I think he says like 2nd cousin) and his ex fiance

4. Andy and Erin split because Andy left the office (didn't quit) on a long "soul search" if you will. She wasn't happy that he ditched her for months without contacting her. She also got involved with Pete.

It should be mentioned that Jim had a bought with the bottle and was arrested on a DUI.

What's the status of the mural Pam was working on? Has anything new happened with it since it was vandalized by that crazy warehouse guy?

That was a very special episode.

I wonder if my theory that Pete is the Scranton City Strangler and Andy will save Erin and they'll get back together holds any water...

Don't believe this Pharoh, didn't happen.

It's annoying that they're airing the retrospective first. I don't want to see 'behind the scenes' of the episode I'm about to watch. Hurray for PVRs.

Regardless, after all these years it'll be nice to see how this finishes.

It's also going to be strange to see the actors popping up in new shows.

I don't think it will have any spoilers. They did the same thing for Seinfeld, and it was fine. They're lose more viewers running it AFTER the final episode IMHO.

Also, Jim fondled the new secretary during a business trip to Florida. She quit the next day.

I haven't watched since early last season but I will likely DVR this.

Sent her back to Jump Street.

I hope it ends with a flashback to Creed in the 1960s getting high with his Grass Roots bandmates, and one of them saying, "Whoa man, you got some weird ideas about the future..." :)

But he did drive after downing an entire bottle of wine at the least, and knocked over Robert California's mailbox in the process.

Who are you going to believe? A guy named after a famous terrorist or a guy named after a bad ass cat?
