Oh. That didn't come across.

I feel quite the fool. An April fool, as it were.

It's interesting, don't know if I like it, but I always assumed Michael and Holly's wedding would be covered.


But the most likely way to end it would presumably be the company going under/sold/office closing/etc.

Long overdue

What's sad is that it's still NBC's top comedy

I still say the only acceptable ending to this show was Jim asking Pam out at the end of Season Three.

Perhaps they will get divorced?

That should make many Office fans secretly happy as they were the jump the shark moment

No, the show had some amazing moments even after Pam/Jim got together. All that did was make Pam less likable and Jim's become a bit of a ***** recently but the show still produced good episodes here and there sometimes consistently. The fault had more to do with them bringing on annoying characters or giving too much air time to certain ones (especially recently, Robert California, Kathy Bates' role, Nellie)

Hopefully Wallace brings back Charles Miner. He was a great heel.

Still watch the show but I think it's time. Hopefully it gets a good sendoff.

It has to end with a wedding, or something equally joyful.

Toby as the Scranton Strangler would be good, Creed fits the profile as well.

There were two direct, terrible side effects to Jim and Pam getting together: Jim became less of a goofy likeable prankster and more of a smug ******, and Pam looks...well, like she had two kids.

I'm glad Greg Daniels is back as the showrunner. I just hope it rides off into the sunset well.

Well the problem was Pam was good as that shy, not really talkative girl who played straight receptionist to Michael's antics.

Once she tried to come alive and such, she became annoying and no longer likeable. I definitely agree with Jim completely losing his "funny hijinks guy" persona and becoming an "office bully" guy. He is in his mid 30s with a family and high-responsibility job. His pranks on Dwight simply look juvenile at this point.

This. Season 1/2 Pam is almost the opposite of current Pam. And usually it feels as if Erin's character is just to replace the cuteness of old Pam.

I spent 6 years watching this show, I may as well give them the time to close things out.

I saw two great posts on ****** about potential endings:

One was having them putting all the footage together and then have all of the cast from the show watching and having Michael saying something like "Yeah right, if that ever makes it to television let me know."

The other one had it ending with Darryl playing some random crap on his keyboard for the producers then coming up with the actual theme song.

Both of those would be really cool, in my opinion.

That would be an amazing ending in my opinion. Acting as if Darryl trying to play some song is a sideplot then revealing what it is he was coming up with.

The great thing about making Toby the strangler is that it'd show that Michael had Toby pegged all along.

Hopefully Holly is no where near the show this season. She sucked the funny out of Michael the same way that Pam has sucked the funny out of Jim.

Kelly has her own show coming out, so I wonder if she's gone. That'd be a shame.

And the prospects of the Dwight show sound great. Every single scene on his farm during the Office has been fking hilarious.
