This is the New Office
12 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As much as I am saddened by Michael's departure, this episode made me feel a bit more confident about the direction of America's favorite sitcom. This episode finally got the laughs rolling again, and made me much more confident in the writers of the show. Kevin's bathroom scene is hilarious, and Dwight really shows his true color as Acting Manager. This finally shows that The Office can survive without Steve Carell. As long as the laughs and writing remains the same, this show will remain great. Besides that, the ensemble really showed it can hold its own. I firmly believe this is the start of the new Office. And this new office is still as funny as before.
