The only somewhat humorous part was Ryan's Smokey Robinson sequence.

it's hard to explain exactly what's going wrong here. when i saw dwight completely misunderstand the silent auction, i thought, "oh $#@!, that's funny," but in typical 2009-2012 office ways, they failed in the execution to make something that was inherently funny, funny at all. in the writers room, someone came up with that gag, and it was rightfully funny. and then using a talented actor who's made me laugh in the past, it wasn't funny at all.
like someone just said, they're trying to reproduce michael. or even still, they're trying to reproduce david brent moments, but coming from several different awkward characters (british chick, nard-dog, spader) and it's become a $#@!ing beating.
End this $#@!ing show already!!!!
Jim cheats on Pam
Those are the only story lines that they can create for me to routinely watch this show again. It's not because I hate Pam's character, which I really do, but it's really the only thing I could think of that I would find the least bit interesting.
If you didn't laugh at last night's episode, then that's a you problem, not the show's problem. I love how people say the show sucks and is unwatchable and then proceed to break down what they didn't like about it. Hey dumb$#@!, if it's unwatchable then why did you watch it?
i fell asleep during last night's episode.
really bad night for the office as the other 3 nbc shows were on fire which just further displays how far the show has fallen.
I actually liked the Oscar moments last night. And Kevin saying Dwight is "the stupid guy in the office... Up till now, we didn't have one."
The other nineteen minutes were pretty lame.
People seem to think that if a show isn't as good as it once was, that it's $#@!. Folks, The Office is different now, but it's better than at least 90% of the shows on television. I mean for Tebus's sake, Wilson We had one damn top ten hit over 20 years ago Philips has a reality show. Let that $#@! sink in. What's worse, if you stop watching shows like The Office, $#@! like that dominates the ratings. Do you really want your children to grow up in a world where Reality TV, chic shows, and Laughtrack sitcoms rule the day?
no, it's just $#@!.
You've been such a great addition to this forum, Dwight.
People I am now ignoring. Dwight Schrute. GarnettLantern. Lisa needs Braces. At least two of them are the same person, maybe all three.
I'm til loling at the fact that a buncha damn crybabies want to bash a show for being terrible, yet still watch it. If the show sucks and you still watch it, what does that say about you?
Lisa needs braces! *dental plan!* /Lenny. what the hell happened to the Florida chick, anyway?
1. They stopped featuring events that take place in the office. What made it so relatable was that almost everyone who works in a office environment - especially a smaller one - could relate to the company related events that went on. They would sprinkle in 3-4 episodes a year that featured stories outside of the office as a change of pace, but it at least somewhat related to the goings on in the office itself. Now, they've given every single damn main cast member a damn love story. Jim and Pam were the only romance on the show the first two seasons. Then Michael came into play. Then Ryan and Kelly. Then Jim and Quincy Jones daughter. Then Dwight and Angela. Then Andy and Angela. Then Andy and Angela. Then Andy and Erin. Then Erin and Gabe. Then Angela and the gay Senator. Now back to Andy and Erin. That doesn't even factor in Oscar, Phyllis, Darrell, and Stanley, but at least they keep them isolated to a handful of episodes in the entire show run. I blame Mindy Kaling for this $#@!. You never give a woman too much creative control over a show because this is the $#@! that happens. Happened to Entourage. Happened to Weeds, and is now happened to the Office. Kelly is the most useless character in the whole damn office. If it takes FOX giving her a show that will last one season tops, then goodbye Mindy. Don't come back either.
2. When Carell left, they panicked and thought they needed to bring in more "star" power. The Will Farrell episodes weren't great, but they were basically patchwork episodes. The finale was great, but they picked the worst two people to keep around. Spader was great as a one off character, but he never should have been brought on as a regular. At least he's out the door. I don't know what dirty nasty degrading things Catherine Tate did to become a big part of this show, but whoever made the call to keep her (Probably Mindy) needs to be stoned with a fury. She's not funny. At all. Her only funny bit of the year came in this last episode and even then, it was the meh part of the episode. Get rid of her. They should have picked Will Arnett as the new manager. That's who everyone wanted. His demeanor and style of humor fits in well with the show. Ray Romano and Jim Carrey obviously wouldn't have been the new managers because well they don't need it. The black guy they interviewed wasn't going to get the position because Stanley is the token black guy and they already had a black manager with Idris Elba, the old fart wasn't going to get the job because he's an old fart, and Ricky Gervais wasn't going to get it because well come on now.
They have a great assortment of characters and they just need to use them. Andy is a funny character and Ed Helms can carry the lead role. Is he Steve Carrell's Michael Scott? No, but no one wants him to be the same guy. No one cares about everyone's little love story and they definitely don't give a $#@! about Jim and Pam's kids. Get rid of them. Use the characters you have and get them back in the office. Do that and the show will be fine. Also, more Toby and Creed. KTHXBAI.
GarnettLantern/Dwight Schrute, what you've just typed is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever seen. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this board is now dumber for having read to it. I award you neg rep, and may God make you die in a fire.
...says the guy who registered a user name in 2012 from a show that hasn't been good since 2008.
Guest appearance from "Machine."
I liked last night's show. Everyone hated it I'm guessing?
I enjoyed Robert California calling Andy a "soft-$#@!ed debutante".
That was more like the good-ole Michael Scott Office episodes. Too, bad they are stealing their own plot lines.
"In celebration of the finalization of my divorce, I got into a case of Australian reds, and......how should I should I say this?.....Columbian whites."
Followed with a knowing nod by Ryan.
it was good to see frank sobotka again
I like that Andy is growing some balls.
I laughed in a few parts.. I continue to enjoy Jim playfully taking the piss out of Dwight at every chance he gets.
Again the show is not what it was, but it is still better than 90% of what's on.
I liked it. All centered around office antics, and Jim messing with Dwight. With the David Wallace/Andy stuff at the end, they are mimicking the show's arc, and admitting Dunder Mifflin/The Office could be twice as good without $#@!ty management/characters, and it's time to set it right.
Also, Gabe didn't completely suck.
Glad to see everyone liked it because I liked it too. Still don't like that they are trying to make the Brit bitch sympathetic because I would still like to see her murdered. I also hated watching California losing it since his character was cool, but since it's been confirmed he's not coming back, it's fine. The Columbian whites line was good. Glad to see Andy smart enough to find a way to stick it to the man. I really hope they don't $#@! that plot up going forward.
what did the senator say to oscar at the end? i watched it 3 times and couldnt figure out what the hell was going on. i assume it was something gay, but someone clear it up for me.
As usual, Dvr cut off the ending scene, so please give a recap.
Good god that was the absolute worst episode in the history of The Office. I didnt laugh once.
The whole Andy thing sucks. Rehiring Nellie sucks. The Robert Cali/donation scheme sucked. Shoulda had Packster as the boss.
How in the hell is NBC renewing this crap?
I actually liked the episode. It at least ended a completely-forgettable season on a positive note.
I liked that Dwight FINALLY investigating Angela's baby happened (although it seems like it should've happened earlier), I liked Robert/Bob's "charity" (and Kevin's face right after), I really liked the coconut $#@!, and I always love seeing Mose again.
