Re: The Office (Season 9 - 2012)

The last 15 minutes of the Finale is the best thing to happen to The Office in the last 2 years. Episode as a whole gets 4 stars out of 5. Steve Carell cameo gets 5 Stars out of 5. I thought it was kind of a stroke of genius to fast forward the show 1 year later with the gang coming back for their reunion to coincide with the wedding of Dwight and Angela. But it was the ultimate prank by Jim that stole the moment. Having Michael Scott there to become Dwight's 'Best Man' and uttering "That's What She Said" was awesome. For the past 2 years I have been hoping that Steve would change his mind and show up for the last episode. The fact that he did made the struggles of getting through these past 2 seasons without him worth it. I wish that Holly (Amy Ryan) would have made a cameo.

I like that they also addressed Erin's past and gave her closure as she found her birth parents. Having them played by Joan Cusack and Ed Begley Jr. was a nice touch. It felt right. Props for bringing back Kelly and Ryan to wrap up their story line and to give them a happy ending, even if it meant abandoning a baby. As I said, the best part about the Finale was the last 15 minutes because it summed up how I felt about the show. Really, it's how everyone feels about it and it ended on a good note. Also, Creed once again steals the show with his "disguise" as he is hauled off in cuffs. The Final shot of the building is the most fitting way to close out The Office.

FYI, I purposely avoided any news or information or spoilers about the Finale, just on the off-chance that Carell would in fact pop up here. I didn't want to be deprived of a genuine surprise like that. It paid off for me in spades.
