As for the audition sheet, I'm pretty okay with how it turned out. John on The Office as Jim, and Adam on Parks and Rec as Ben
Well yeah, but Adam would have been good as Jim, too.

I think Carell makes one last appearance. Though the way he left was damn great.

Think Michael will show up like Eric did on That 70's Show, one quick scene.

What happened with him and that show? I watched it off and on, but it was never must watch. I always enjoyed it, but during the later seasons I had a lot going on and didn't see the last few...

Not to derail this thread too much, but I think Topher always had problems with the rest of the cast.

From reading some stuff, the two major things were Topher wanted to go do movies, and he didn't really like the cast, except for Laura Prepon (Donna). In the last season Kutcher is not in every episode, as he also wanted to go do movies. The three guys were very close, believe they bought a club together in Hollywood, but Topher was never really into the party/drinking scene.

It's one of my favorite shows, but the last season was garbage. Josh Myers made me cringe.

Pretty good. I think that might be the last we see of Brian with the way Pam rushed out of his house. Pretty funny though, Pam learns that they're filming when you don't think they're filming, and secretly tries to go to Brian's house

Andy getting mad about all the comments online was pretty funny too.

Coming towards the end here

That was a fantastic episode, although it certainly made it well known things are slowly wrapping up. Good to see Michael Scott back in footage from season 1 on the show.

that was bad. heres my beef.

what were the charactersí motivations for letting the film crew in? for letting them film not just office stuff, but legal depositions, internal meetings, baptisms, weddings etc? I really felt that we would learn that the characters had been compensated in some way that was purposely never referencedÖthat would make sense. instead, they are claiming they never knew they were being filmed for a majority of shots?

and watching the youtube promo was just awkward. I guess itís a difficult show concept to write an ending for, but they couldíve done better than that.

BLASPHEMY!

Interesting that you would say that after this episode though, which ended on the happiest note we've seen from Jim and Pam in a while...

I'm operating under the assumption that Carrell won't be back at all (and I'm fine with leaving Michael's send-off as is), but it would be a neat way to tie up the show for him to do something off screen to prevent the more embarrassing footage from being part of the documentary. They've already had a couple shout outs to him the last couple weeks, which were nice.

I think it's pretty obvious which scenes they know the cameras are on them, and which ones the cameras are sneaking in to hear their private conversations.

I think season 5 was the last season I watched of The Office. I remember season 5 wasn't anywhere near the quality of the first four seasons and then I just stopped watching.

Pretty good episode. Roseanne Barr coming out of left-field with a cameo was pretty funny I thought.

Fully expected Toby to try and use Jim's information against him towards Pam, so I guess Toby is over that crush?

If anything, I think Toby is so into Nellie that I thought he'd use it to get closer to her (and it looked like that was kind of the case).

Also, kinda surprised they did go down the Jim-Pam major problems route.

Loved Angela's husbands press conference, and Kevin going nuts for keeping the secret. Hoping it ends with Andy quitting, Dwight becoming regional manager, and Clark becoming Assistant to the Regional Manager.

"Not without cause, Michael."

"I have cause. It's be-caaause I hate him."

I know said quote does not pertain to this season, but I watched Frame Toby last night, and that line always gets me.
