    Well, it did take Bewitched a few years to bite the dust after the Darren switch. And then Happy Days saw the departure of Ron Howard, who was a major part of the plot lines along with the Fonz. Do you remember when Valerie Harper was fired from her show Valerie in the '80s? Valerie changed names to Valerie's Family and then to the Hogan Family as the Valerie Hogan character is written out as having died in a car accident and Aunt Sandy Hogan, played by Sandy Duncan, took over.

    That was a very well done farewell for Michael. I don't know how much I can follow the show now without Michael. Alot of good shows are still on the air like Modern Family, The Middle, Parks and Rec. But The Office will always have a special place in my heart.

    I almost broke down crying at the Michael/Jim exchange. And then seeing him leave the office with everyone (except Jim) expecting him to come back the next day was an especially depressing moment. The show itself got me through a bad phase in my life, so it holds a special place in my heart. I'll still follow it, but the lack of Michael Scott isn't going to do the show any favors and I'll be surprised if we end up seeing a Season 9.

    the show had a few laughs, michael scott will surely be missed. my favorite goodbye was with pam. very nice way to end it. i like when he said "let me know if they ever air this"

    The Show is over without Micheal Scott.....at first I wanted more but really who cares if Micheal is gone?
    Jim and Pam are living a perfect life, Andy and Erin will get togeather and really besides that not much else is happening No one can replace the character Steve Carell played...it might be based off the English Office but he Michal his own character. one of my all time favorite characters to watch and laugh with.

    I just hope they can get Micheal back for the last Episode next year (unless they somehow turn the show around)

    I liked the episode last night, and thought it was the perfect way for him to go out ... and of course him mouthing "that's what she said" after he took off the microphone was classic.

    The show didn't have quite as many laughs as one might expect and unfortunately I think the inclusion of Will Ferrel kind of took the attention from Steve Carell leaving ... but overall, I think it was a graceful exit.

    Will be interesting to see where the show goes from here. The next few weeks will be filled with guest stars, which is fine ... the real test will be next season.

    I really think the only person who I could see replacing Michael Scott is Ricky Gervais and I think it would be great.

    Even with that though, I think the shows probably got another season in them.

    That ep was not funny and not very good Sad to see him go though.

    I didn't like tonight's episode very much, save for a few moments. The ending where all the employees sang the song the Michael almost brought a tear to my eye, though. I can't believe that we only have one more episode starring Steve Carell. I'm gonna miss his character so much.

    I enjoy his character too.

    Thank God it was only a cameo. that was painful.

    LOVED last night's ep. It was so perfect!!!

    Will Ferrel is going to be his replacement???

    Just finished watching tonight's episode where he proposes to Holly. I really liked it and felt like he finally did something right. Having the sprinklers go off was a brilliant touch. And now we know why he's leaving.

    Will Farrell? I guess this has been on the entertainment news but it was news to me. I'm not sure how I feel about that. What do you all think.

    ^gotta agree I thought he would be in the whole episode it was funny and all but could have be better.
    The last two episodes have been very Funny and still hoping we have a few more episodes with Mr Scott since it is rumored he will be leaving 3 episodes early.

    I came over here to see if anyone has posted about The Office lately, but no - I guess kind of a sad statement on how the show is going this Season. Episodes are sure not like they used to be.

    I wish Michael were written more consistently (consistent with prior seasons). At present, I can't wait until next season. Really, what he did was pretty inexcusable, then again, Holly is quite weird. I feel the same as secretary what's-her-name: "I don't get it."

    The state senator's, um, preferences, are going to play out interestingly.

    Gotta get caught up on my episode recaps.

    Ep 10 China...uh, we'll just skip this one.

    Ep 11 Classy Christmas
    Spoiler
    Possibly the best episode from beginning to end in a couple of years. Loved the snowball fight between Dwight and Jim. Dwight getting his revenge on Jim after years of torment. The hiding in the snowman, the fake wigs (he has a wig for everyone in the office), the fake gift from Pam. And the finale, all those snowmen in the parking lot. That was awesome and creepy at the same time. "In the end the greatest snowball isn't a snowball at all. It's fear. Merry Christmas."--Dwight:lol:. Felt sorry for Michael in this one, but this is obviously not the end of Holly/Michael hooking back up.

    Kevin's Toy Story theory made me crack up.

    i actually found this past week's episode to be pretty funny. possibly because of the amount of racism thrown in, but at the same time, my humor is pretty dark.
