If so what did you think of the ending of the episode?

i like the part where the fonz jumps all the way over the shark on his waterskis.

I liked everything about it except that the camera man that comforted Pam looked like a supermodel.

I didn't like that it ended on a sad note, but it was interesting to see part of the filming crew; it made it feel more real, since it's easy to forget that the characters are aware of the cameras.

I've forgetten to watch lots of shows lately, you can never count on them anymore to have new episodes week after week, this purposeful delaying before sweeps is bullcrap... anyhow, I'm probably behind a couple episodes at least I should get caught up on The Office.

I just went and watched it thanks to this thread. That was really........heavy. I know that The Office has the ability to go where it did, but I don't think it's ever been that sad before. Generally it makes me shed a tear due to being happy, but I can't remember it going opposite direction before.

Oh and the little surprise at the end was nice also. I don't want to ruin what it was though.

I love emotion, but it was a bit too emotional for a comedy. Just sayin. Camera guy was cool though. My dad had no idea why there was a camera guy though. Had to explain the entire shows concept to him. :P

Really happy that it took a bit of a 'darker' turn at the end. Was getting quite sick of Pam and Jim being this 'oh so perfect, happy go lucky' couple. It was making them really boring. I think they have handled this whole new job/move very well, and this sort of confrontation was expected and they did a great job with it.

This season overall has been pretty good. The less Andy the better.

The ending with Jim/Pam seemed forced to me. Was like they were going out of their way to make a huge conflict between the two and make Jim look like a dick.

I thought it was a decent episode overall though.

Was solid

I figured that sports business start-up would be trouble, but I didn't think it would turn Jim... well, into what happened at the end there. \I figured some episodes ago when he handed off his savings that he gave them to some pyramid scheme / MLM sports marketing scam and he'd lose it all, and I figured that might cause a rift between Jim and Pam, who knows maybe that could still happen and add to the drama that just unfolded.

The less Andy the better.

SaintLeonidas

I don't understand how he's even been on the show this long. Watching him is just painful, although thankfully not nearly as painful as when he first started showing up.

Him and Robert California are the worst things about The Office.

I hope Pam hooks up with the cameraman.

The Office was good. The Office US sucks.

It was terrible. What season of The Office is this now? 9? All of a sudden they choose to have an actual occurence of drama? Now lets interact with the camera crew that has been filming us for nine years? That was pathetic, it was totally out of place.

It just felt weird and tacked-on to see those final moments last night. I've only been watching the occasional episode due to vanishing interest, but between that and Steve Carell not returning for the show's finale,I'm not about to lose sleep if I don't see how it ends.

Somebody has to be the Scranton Strangler. And if it isn't going to be Toby, it might as well be Brian or one of the other people that has been filming them all these years. I would like that.

I feel like they're going to go with the obvious choice of Creed, but I hope I'm surprised when the Strangler is revealed.

How is it better? It sucked out all of the charm the original series had and streched it out for over 10 times the length.
