During the Christmas Party when David is talking to Carol about being "stitched-up", he makes reference to Series 1 Episode 4, "Training" and his impromptu guitar performance. He says he did a cover of Bob Marley's 'No Woman No Cry', and Oliver, "the office black guy" loved it, but the BBC cut it from the programme... Oliver wasn't in Series 1, he moved from Swindon in Series 2. See more »

This is definitely the best!!!
23 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best end of any show I have ever seen. I almost cried. I won't give away any spoilers, but it does not disappoint in the slightest.

The acting, directing... all carry on beautifully from the show into the finale, which is supposed to be the reuniting of all of the characters from The Office a few years after their split. Dawn and her husband come back from America, David comes back from his colleague-imposed exile, and everything is--more or less--the same, with just as many difficulties as in the old days. Amazing, and nothing more to say of this. Dawn has annoyed tension with her husband, Tim and Dawn are both quite on edge around each other, Dave has tried to make it as a celebrity who does nothing, but has come out on the rough edge of things, and Gareth... is still the same old Gareth that we all love! I would definitely recommend a watch for anybody at all who was unsettled with the way the show actually ended. This is most definitely worth it!
