    Andy was fired. Why do you assume he IS returning?

    And I am not assuming that Ed Helms isn't returning, but only that Andy has left. IF they bring him back, I hope they do it soon.

    I really have no desire to watch this show anymore with how this season has gone so flat. There have been a few moments here and there that were fun, but more often, not.

    Parks and Rec is making this show look like a junior high musical.

    This is the first I hear of a "creative reboot", whatever the heck that means. There has not been an ounce of creativity on this show for a while now.

    I thought the show was ending and that this was the final season. A reboot implies that it's going to continue. So I'm confused. Can someone explain the direction they are heading (just in general terms: show will continue but they are doing a reboot or show is ending after this season).

    There has been NO talk of the show ending or this being the final season. It's still NBC's highest-rated comedy. There has been talk of some of the original cast leaving, however.

    If creative reboot means Nellie staying, then I am leaving.

    I finally watched it online. It was pretty dreadful.

    I actually had a moment or two where I smiled, though, so that was a nice surprise.

    I'm kind of sad we won't get to see the progression of Andy and Erin, though. I always enjoyed them.

    I'll join the chorus about how terrible it was. I've had enough of Catherine Tate. If they get rid of her I'll try it again, but for now I'm out.

    This is another one (I'm looking at you, HIMYM) that I'm really only watching because I have so much time invested at this point.

    The created these characters to mimic reality so that we'd empathize with them and care about their situations. Then, they made them completely unrealistic and made them behave in unbelievable ways because they ran out of ideas.

    Ruined.

    A creative reboot is now necessary to properly restructure the show around the absence of Michael Scott, because their first attempt with Spader and Tate didn't work.

    I read the thread and expected all kinds of Nellie drama then found very little. It was all Andy drama. Not a funny episode but not a horrible one either.

    I sure thought so. I got hooked on this show originally because for just about everyone in the cast, I could name someone I had worked with who was just like them. Michael was the easiest. I worked with a bunch of sales managers just like him.

    It was Andy drama because of Nellie though.

    Yes. Go back to the first three or four seasons.

    There was enough connection to reality to make the humorous situations just silly enough to be believable.


    Now it's ridiculous.

    Saw parallels to real life. Never saw anything near reality. Michael would never have a job. Especially after the sex he had with his boss. That was early on.

    It was never believable. It was just funnier.

    Because Nellie was the new boss. Sorry dies not compute. It was drama because of Robert California then.

    It was believable because, despite the ridiculous situations, the characters' personalities were based on people one would encounter in a real life office. Michael is more true to life than you know.


    That allowed the viewer to enjoy the program without questioning the realism of outlandish outcomes.

    Actually yours does not compute. She was the drama because she took over his place...she was not the boss. She was not given the job title, she just walked in and took over. Robert did not want her there.

    She was bullying her way in and Andy fought it. He was ready to take over and would have until Robert finally at the very end decided.

    You must not have worked too many places, then. I have been in at least two where just about everything from the first few seasons was absolutely believable.

    In my professional experience ... Michael and Pam are pretty much the people I worked with at one time. Sure their actions are exaggerated for comedy but they are quiet recognizable. In the beginning of the show I used to groan every time Michael did something my boss has done... then I just gave up - it was too much.
