    Very happy Michael Scott was there. It was a very subdued appearance but I thought it was well done. It was fairly obvious when Jim said he couldn't be best man.

    As an overall finale it was at ok.

    I haven't watched an episode this season, so I was a bit lost of the parts I watched. Which was kind of nice in its own right.

    That was a great finale!

    So many of the flashback scenes I did not remember even though I don't think I missed any episodes.

    So, Pam DID decide to let Jim peruse Athlead. Errr.. I mean Athleap.

    Moving to Austin.



    When Jim was telling Dwight he couldn't be Best Mensch, you just knew it was gonna be Michael.

    Michael had the best reappearance. His confessional was really funny as well.

    Just awesome that most of the characters got their "happily ever afters." I was a little afraid that Kevin was going to end up with the baby.

    Pretty satisfying end to the series.

    I enjoyed the retrospective as well.

    I enjoyed it. Ryan's baby was the cutest smiliest baby ever! Glad to see he and Kelly haven't changed.

    It was funny that everyone brought cats as wedding gifts. :)

    I call seasons five through nine mostly terrible, and feel that they fed, vampirically, on the strength of the first four (especially season two). The Jim and Pam relationship was ruined as Jim slowly lost his charm and New Pam locked his masculinity away in some dark basement where she, no doubt, descended on still dark nights to torture and taunt it.

    Minor characters that should have remained minor characters were promoted to the Major-Minors (and some to the Majors) where their once razor-sharp personalities were dulled into blunt objects.

    But, it is a testament to the strength of those first 70 episodes or so that a lot of people hung around till the bitter-sweet end. I was one.

    I enjoyed the retrospective quite a bit, and felt that the series ender was sweet and pretty dignified.

    When Jim said, "Best Prank Ever", the first thing that came to my mind was that he - well, the show - had just pranked the viewers after all of the "Steve Carell won't be in the final" talk.

    Welcome back, Devon!


    Suddenly, I feel nostalgic over my bobble head collection and my visit to Scranton a couple years ago.

    I have to admit that it got dusty in here when Jim said, "Best prank ever".

    I thought that it was good finale to the series and everyone of the majors had their moment.

    Although I did wonder how Dwigt had Toby fired.

    I never watched The Office until last November and since then I've watched every episode so many things are fresh. I've enjoyed the last few seasons close to as much as the earlier one's.

    I thought this was a good send off, as said it was understated, but I really don't know how else a show like this could end.

    Funny that Creed was outed as being in Grass Roots.

    The blond receptionist (?) in the office was Don Johnson's daughter !!! :0

    And Pam's realtor was Michael Scott's former girlfriend (and Steve Carrell's wife).

    I knew her as the Kate in Ben and Kate but never knew she was Don Johnson's daughter.

    I never realized Scranton had so many palm trees. :)

    I think Toby was the only one who didn't have a happy ending.

    What was the music that played during the wedding ceremony? It *almost* sounded like the theme to The Office (UK). Am I nuts?

    Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith.

    I thought it was a nice touch that like the other background characters who became main characters during the run of the show (Phyllis, Angela, Oscar, Creed), her character's name was her real name, Dakota.

    Also, she was the accountant who replaced Kevin (she couldn't figure out the one character that kept appearing on the books, which turned out to be Kevin's made-up number).
