    The Office

    So, to all of my fellow faithful followers of The Office......


    Who's gonna replace Michael?


    I'm so sad he's leaving!!!!

    Will Ferrell

    or

    Ricky Gervais

    I'd be perfectly content with either of them.

    Stephen Root would be my pick, reprising his role in News Radio. Then again I could see that being a complete train wreck.

    I'd love to see Ricky Gervais take that spot.

    I think that a great twist would be someone like Creed taking Michael's place as the boss.

    I hate that Steve Carell is leaving, it's really going to change the show.

    I don't. Jim has already shown he can't be an effective manager. He seems to be smart and a great employee, but the staff doesn't respect him. Also, being married to Pam will prevent him from doing so unless she leaves. I don't think Corporate likes or trusts Dwight at all, so he won't get the nod. Andy hasn't done enough to stand out from the others and make Corporate take notice of him. I also don't think that Darryl's personality would be a good fit as the branch manager, from a writer's point-of-view.

    Creed's character has enough background it could work. His supporting role could easily be replaced too. I like this concept.

    Kelly went to junior executive training. Thoughts?



    And I was watching a repeat episode, shortly after Daryl was brought to the office from the warehouse. He told Jim "I've got big plans for this office." That episode aired after the writers knew Steve Carell was leaving. Makes me lean towards him taking the position....BUT...I agree that his character doesn't really fit the role.

    So I'm woefully behind on the new ones. The most recent I've seen is the one where Michael proposes and says he's leaving. That's the last one aired right?

    My vote is for Ricky Gervais. The cameo was awesome!

    It would be pretty funny if Kelly became the manager.

    One thing I'm going to miss is the interaction between Michael and Toby.

    Yes that's the most recent new episode.

    I believe Michael has two more episodes before he's done. And in those two episodes Will Ferrell will be making guest appearances. Maybe it'll be him?

    'The Office' to bid Carell farewell on April 28

    NEW YORK NBC is confirming April 28 as the date for Steve Carell's final appearance on "The Office." His farewell episode on the popular comedy will be supersized, the network announced Monday.

    That night's long good-bye will air from 9 to 9:50 p.m. Eastern time, followed by an extended version of "Parks and Recreation" that concludes at 10:30 p.m. Eastern, NBC said.

    I also heard that Will Ferrell's guest appearances are GUEST appearances...with an emphasis on "guest." But in a preview I saw, he was talking about being the new boss in the office. So I don't know what to think.

    If you're up to date on the show, what do you think so far?

    I can't wait to see the last episode of the season!

    It's better with Will Ferrell gone. And Dwight's episode as manager was actually pretty funny. They haven't lost me as a fan....yet.

    I like Will Ferrell, but his episodes weren't nearly as funny as I'd expected them to be.

    So, did anyone watch the first episode of the new season last night? I watched it and thought that some of it was very funny but it wasn't as good as I expected it to be....perhaps my expectations were too high.
