Seitz on The Office Finale: The Fondest Farewell

The Office ’s last two episodes – last four, if you consider this week’s finale and last week’s episode to be double features – were sweet, charming, and often sneakily powerful. I’m surely not the only viewer who was a wreck throughout large sections of each: Jim’s video declaration of love for Pam, Erin finally meeting her mother and father (played by Joan Cusack and Ed Begley, Jr.), and the entirety of Dwight’s wedding to Angela (with special surprise guest appearance by Michael) scored especially high on the waterworks scale.

It's been a long journey, and tonight Dunder Mifflin closed its doors forever. There is tremendous pressure on a television show's season closer; and nearly insurmountable expectations for a series finale when a show has meant as much to viewers and fans as The Office has over the last 9 years. There have been some pretty notable misses over the years, and some that many would hail as the standard for how a finale should be done (M.A.S.H. is perhaps the most iconic.) READ MORE...

'The Office' series finale: The beauty in ordinary things

The series finale of "The Office" had a lot of heavy lifting to do. For nine years, the audience had been getting to know and love this collection of characters -- even the ones that weren't that lovable -- and it couldn't really leave them in a bad place. Not too bad, anyway. And, by the way, if it could find a way to work Michael Scott back in one last time despite repeated denials from all sides that Steve Carell wouldn't return, that would be OK too. READ MORE...

The Office Series Finale Review: Beauty in Ordinary Things

At its peak, The Office was arguably the best television comedy of all time. That is something that deserves to be celebrated in grand fashion, and that is exactly what the writers did in the series "Finale." While also being funny and wrapping up every single character arc, the over 92 minutes of run time of retrospective and final ep did a tremendous job of honoring this fantastic series, and hitting nearly every emotional beat the audience could have asked for. We will never get to see Jim prank Dwight again. We will never again witness Kevin say something so completely idiotic that you have to scratch your head. We will never feel the uncomfortable joy of Michael interacting with other human beings. But at this moment, after watching how much these professionals, and the characters they played, poured into The Office over the last nine years, we'd be selfish to ask for any more. READ MORE...

The Office Season 9 Review “Finale”

After the somewhat needless padding to the last few episodes, I was a little concerned that the final episode of "The Office" might be a bit of a letdown, or, at the very least, overextending itself with the longest episode of the season, clocking in at just over an hour and fifteen minutes, not including the hour-long documentary that came before it. Fortunately, the end result was definitely one of the highlights of an admittedly mixed bag of a final season. In fact, in the grand scheme of series finales, this one didn’t drop the ball at all, for the most part. READ MORE...


What a relief, and joy, it is that these last few episodes of The Office have been a return to form. This week's "Livin' The Dream" was a strong follow-up to last week's "Paper Airplane." There was, once again, a strong balance between the characters with each one given a moment, or more, to shine. The Phyllis and Stanley Lil' Romeo mini-debate stands out as one of my favorite bits in the episode. It was really just a small exchange, but we so rarely get to see any additional flavor to their interpersonal dynamics in the work-place; so it was fun to imagine this as an ongoing argument between them.
