Season Review-The Office Season 9

Overall: 8-great

Let's face it: The Office was one of the most influential shows of all time. It also has a special place in my heart, and will continue to do so for as long as I live. It created wonderful characters, relationships, and really hilarious moments. It reflected the boredom of office life. It made us cheer, and cry, and laugh. I will miss it.

Now, the eighth season was terrible. It wasn't funny, and it was pretty painful to watch. I felt the 9th season really redeemed the show; it was once again fun to watch, especially due in part to the better usage of the new characters. In addition to that, characters like Erin and Dwight were still fantastic.

The whole Brian the boom guy storyline was pretty terrible, however. That whole situation seemed like an excuse to throw in some drama into Jim-Pam, all because it was the final season. However, the way the storyline wrapped up in AARM was incredible sweet.

The finale brought great closure to all the characters, and the Michael Scott cameo was excellent. The final 10 minutes of talking heads brought tears to my eyes, and the final line of the show struck me deep inside. I will truly miss the show. Goodbye, The Office.
