this series I rate as one of the greatest of TV's, all-time. it's not only comedic; it is intelligent, even subversive, comedy. it features one of the world's most beautiful women (Jenna Fischer)and the strongest supporting cast-- as well as writers, that I have ever seen. the breaking down of the fourth wall does not distract, but adds dimension and depth. bravo bravo bravo!!! what a show! if the mary tyler moore show was the sitcom of the 70s, and the dick van dyke show was the sitcom of the 60s, this is the sitcom of the new millennium. andy, when he comes back, seems like an impression of Michael Scott (Steve Carrell). it is interesting to consider whether the show would have lasted more seasons, had Carrell remained as office manager Michael Scott. His leaving gave other characters a chance to develop more of an arc, and this was not unsuccessful, but there was no longer a star around. Reminds me of, in the world of popular music, when Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty relented, and allowed the other members to write their own songs on one of their later albums. I am not saying there is a direct parallel, but ... perhaps it is of interest to look at the two examples, together.

Season 9 is actually my favourite season of the Office, which is apparently a rather uncommon opinion. However, I loved the way it explored the characters a bit more than it had before, and fully fleshed out all the characters we didn’t really know. The three accountants (Kevin, Angela, Oscar) probably had my favourite bits of character development. I loved the way they resolved the issues they had with each other, no matter how huge the issues were, and united to help each other through tough times. One of my favourite moments of the whole series was when Kevin stood up to Senator Lipton about his mistreatment of Angela and Oscar. I absolutely adored the finale, and I loved how it wrapped up all the characters’ stories and gave a few little details, like Meredith’s college degree and Oscar’s origami. It was a really nice end to one of my favourite shows.

I was ready to stick a fork in this series after last season, but this season was great from start to finish and left me very sad that the Office is no more. All nine seasons of this are worth watching, as are the original BBC episodes. Hilarious dialogue and memorable characters and situations. Touching moments. There really is a little something for everyone here except someone who doesn't like comedies. If you have never watched any of this series, for whatever reason, give it a try.
