  • Season 6 finale

    This episode makes sense. This season didn't start off on the best foot and it ended the same way. In a storyline that could've been done better or ended sooner, Jo comes along to see who told the press about the printers. Everyone in the office thinks it's Andy. The treatment he received was a little too mean. Yes (spoiler alert) he was the leak but it could've been many other people. How come Gabe didn't follow up? Why didn't Jo tell anyone about the printers? I admire Michael for not telling Jo who the leak was. For whatever Michael has did this past season, it was a nice reminder that he still misses Holly. This season marked the end of Nick. Don't know who he was? I didn't either until I heard the commentary for season 7 that he was the the guy Pam ran into at the job fair from season 5. It would've made his speech better. My biggest disappointment about this episode was the that promos for this episode showcased a big surprise. Even at the end when Jo would look into Michael's request it didn't fulfill the promise. However looking back maybe when Jo said she would look into Michael's request it did set up something later on.

    This was not the best season. The next season was better. You just have get through the weeds to get to them.moreless

    What can I say about this season of the Office. There were some decent episodes and there were some awful ones. Which brings me to the big problem with this season, there were no great episodes (at least not any that i can recall.) The worst part is that this episode was the worst episode this season (right behind the clip show episode). I don't understand what happened to the writers this season, but they need to get their act together. What happened to the office and the brilliant humor that went along with it. What's with all the childish jokes, the dull story lines, and the pointless character add-ons. If season 7 turns out to be just as bad as this season, I can only hope that NBC will put the office out of it's misery.moreless
  • I thought this seasons finale was decent. But nothing spectacular happened, it was just like another episode

    9.5
    Although it didn't have as many laughs, it was still fun to watch Michael Scott and his boss trying to discover who leaked to the press that some of the printers they were selling were catching on fire. Most people suspect Andy, but it was pretty interesting that the leak could have came from Pam, Darryl or Kelly. I, also, thought Ryan's joke of developing a one-in-all social networking website called woof for $12.99/month was pretty funny.



    Although, I was pretty disappointed in Andy because Pam, Darryl and Kelly all told the truth to Michael about being potential leaks, but Andy straight faced lied on his (living) parents grave. The others did it by accident, but Andy was the only one who directly emailed the press (with video). He never came forward until the IT guy ratted him out. I understand why he was concerned about the safety of the customers but he should been a man and told the truth about his connection to the leak. On the other hand, he most likely would have lost his job if he did. And Andy is one of my favorite characters on the show, so in a small way I am also kind of glad he didn't.



    But overall, I really enjoyed the episode for what it was and looking forward to where the writers are going with this Holly thing.moreless
  • Worst Season Finale in the history of television, I want my 30 minutes back.

    Way to go Office, I hope NBC cancels you after this abysmal attempt. So I watched this episode giving the Office my last chance at allowing them to make something funny or at least something creative, and we get an episode were everyone is mildly upset with Andy for messing with the press about the faulty printers. There are absolutely no funny scenes, Michael, Jim, and Dwight don't say anything amusing, and yet they somehow are unable to make any of the scenes serious. The entire episode is flat, and I really hate to see this show go out like this, but if this is the trend they continue to follow, I hope it does.moreless
  • Awful.

    What was that? Probably the worst season finale I have ever watched. Usually finales that don't have a cliffhanger tie up all loose ends, and it really just ties a bow on the whole season. This episode left me annoyed. Can you call this a finale? Really?



    Was anyone really paying attention with the printer crisis Sabre was having? I noticed a lot of filler scenes, basically just to keep the time go by. None of the characters really found out about who snitched, and you'd think that the possibility of Holly coming back would excite me. But in this case, it felt like the writers were asking themselves, "Hmm what are we missing? Oh yeah a cliffhanger!" "I can't think of anything" "Just say Holly might come back, that will leave them hanging" Wow, worst Office episode ever and probably the worst finale in the history of television.moreless
