That's funny.

(I may have said this before) It really would be interesting if we ever heard Ricky Gervais' real opinion of the U.S. version of "The Office". IIRC, he's said that he makes $50K/episode, so for that he's presumably overjoyed.

But the U.S. version was totally a "happy ending" show.. which I like, being American and all (I could swear I've heard him or others say that's an American cliche).

Some of you that have only seen the U.S. version should watch the original. They're actually quite different after the first couple of eps.

(I say this as someone who likes the U.S. version better, BTW.)

It's been a while since I've seen the UK version, but I seem to remember thinking that Gervais sold out his own show when he gave David Brent some sort of nonsense redemptive happy ending. I wondered if he was jealous that Brent was less popular than Tim and Dawn.

Finally caught up.

I thought the finale was terrific. The show has always had a lot of heart, so I thought it was very consistent to give everyone a happy send-off. Loved seeing Michael again, although I figured it out right when Jim said he could no longer be the Bestest Mensch. It got real dusty in my family room at that point, and many points thereafter.

I too finally watched this. The last few episodes were greatness. Glad they ended it the right way.

I just watched the finale. I stopped watching during the original run about 1/3 of the way into season 8. I was just doing a rewatch on Netflix and bailed mid season 6 - I wanted nothing to do with reliving Sabre, Robert California, etc. but I decided to watch some of the last season and it was actually pretty good! I thought it was settled back into being more like it was in early seasons, though clearly not as good. Andy was amusing as boss, the new guys were great especially Dwight Jr., Nellie ending up being well used and funny.

I can only imagine the conversations on this board and others about how awful Pam was and I'm glad I didn't read it real time. Because she was totally justified. I hate that the writers wrote her into that situation. Pam and Jim having problems was really uncomfortable, but them making up a few episodes before the end was so great.

I thought the finale hit all the right notes. They brought everyone back and I loved that so many had their confessional moments to wrap things up nicely. It was also appropriate that they ended on a party in the office.

Such a great show. Yeah, it had some bad seasons, but these characters were so great and the stories so often so human.

Oh, I loved Oscar taking in Angela at the end. So sweet.
