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.
