Yeah, I think it would have been much funnier if he'd been a major success after everyone thought he was nuts for leaving his job to pursue "fame."

Yea, I was thinking that too. I know we've heard him sing a lot before, and I don't remember it being bad.

I'm so gad that Pam and Jim are getting all sweet and goofy again. That aspect of the show is like 95% of the reason I have watched for the past however many seasons. So, I've been real "eh" about it for a while. But this last episode almost made me cry.

Yeah! He was a way better singer any other time that he sang (and it was never weird broadway tunes, or whatever).

Best line of the night:

"I feel like all my kids grew up, and then they married each other. It's every parent's dream!"

That was a great finale. I pretty much died of laughter when everybody kept bringing cats as wedding gifts. And Kelly and Ryan! And Michael! Aw.

Between that and the INCREDIBLY timed, "Michael! You came!" "That's what she said!"

The funniest part was Kelly and Ryan's weirdness.

I loved it, and it was a really fitting ending. But I do wish they had just ended it about 45 seconds earlier and had Creed be the last thing. That would have been perfect.

I would have liked more Michael. He stole the episode with two lines!

That was a pretty perfect final episode! I agree, a bit more Michael would have been nice. But overall, I loved it.

I loved it. I'm actually glad there wasn't more Michael to steal the finale, he had a few hilarious lines and I was just really happy to find out he had children (and that he bought two phones with two plans to hold all the pictures, awww!). That was all I really needed!

There was just so much good stuff! I smiled the whole time.

I wish Michael had been with Holly and his kids at the wedding. But, yea, he had the best lines.

Always wondered why they had a guitar propped against the wall in Creed's cubicle. Should we expect the Jim and Pam versions of Paul Reiser's post-sitcom books? A Dwight-written Couplehood or Parenthood would be highly entertaining.

i loved that Michael came back for the wedding when they kept saying Steve Carrell wasnt going to be in the finale.
just teh couple lines he had were great.

it was a great ending!

I loved the ending. I had read an interview, where the writers asked the actors how they wanted to see their character go off into the sunset, and I think they really did a great job with it.

I loved Kelly and Ryan ditching Ryan's baby and Ravi and running off into the sunset with him yelling "I've finally mastered commitment!"

And Jim being a great best man for Dwight and only Gutenpranken. And Kevin getting a bar! Oscar running for office!

But the best was Michael - I love that he has two phones and a family plan because he has so many pictures of his kids. So Michael. And hurrah for them pranking the audience. I screamed out loud when SC showed up and said "That's what she said" BECAUSE OMG HOW FREAKING PERFECT!

Yay! A great ending to a great series!

I would've loved if Michael had been in the last office scene, it so felt like it needed him.

I loved it! So glad they all end up living happily ever after.
(I kept thinking to myself today, I wonder why Michael wasn't in the espisode more, surely he would liked to have been. Then I had to keep reminding myself it's a show and he's just an actor.)

And agree with the Pam and Jim. So perfect.

They probably only had Steve Carell for one day at that wedding location shoot. Or they just didn't want him to steal the finale. Or a combination of factors. Seeing him really made me realize how empty the show felt without him. This was a good ending, but it should have happened two years ago.

Oh well. I was satisfied overall. Thanks, Office!
