Heartbreaking
15 August 2011 | by (Amarillo, TX, United States) – See all my reviews

I am a new fan of The Office, finding it on Netflix after having laughed hysterically through a rerun one late night. After watching this episode, I have a new respect for the character Michael Scott. He really is just a sweet guy looking for a little love and respect, and never finding the right way to earn those things. He is truly clueless, and it was so heartbreaking to watch him realize he had been betrayed by the people he would be most willing to do anything for - people he has done outrageous things for countless times. He summed it up well at the end when he explained his choice, and I was glad for his decision. I can't wait to continue on with the series to see him hopefully find his happiness. This show is one of the most well written series I have watched, with awesome characters!
