The Office.

"There's a lot of beauty in everyday things. Isn't that kind of the point?"

I thought that the Office finale was absolutely perfect. I literally couldn't have asked for more.
(This post has spoilers.)

I loved every single minute of that episode. I already mentioned how much I love Jim and Dwight together. I love love love how their relationship has developed. I loved watching Jim as his Best Man, and seeing Jim, Pam, Angela and Dwight sitting and laughing together at the end was the perfect way to tie everything up. Also, I'm pretty sure I want to walk down the aisle to Sweet Child of Mine now. Because that was amaze.

The way they handled Michael's return was absolutely flawless. I'm absolutely shocked it stayed a secret until now, and I'm so glad it did. We got to see that life has given him everything he wanted, and he got to do one last That's What She Said. It was poignant and wonderful, but it didn't overshadow the wedding or the finale. So well done. Perfect.

People have made fun of me and joked that it isn't real. And I mean, yeah, of course it's not real. But the emotions, the relationships, the laughs... those are all real. It's always been optimistic and honest and relatable and wonderful. No matter how much things change, the way we experience emotion doesn't. Ever. That will always be the same. I'm glad I've had The Office in my life for nine years, and I'm glad that we'll still have it for many years to come.

I was sooo happy with last night's finale. Michael Scott was perfect. He didn't say too much, but his little joke at the end about his children growing up and getting married just solidified the fact that he's still the same old Michael. Great post!

I loved Pam's quote at the end, it was such a great way to end the show!

I thought they did such a perfect job ending the series–both for the fans, and the actors themselves. I loved Pam's quote, and Michael's "That's what she said." Was perfection. Perfection.

I loved it too! Glad I'm not the only one who had to blog my thoughts. I couldn't agree more about the Steve Carell cameo - absolutely perfect and just enough! I think everyone involved with the show showed a lot of respect in giving the fans the ending that they wanted to see for these characters.
