sometimes goodbyes are a bitch  
I want to go track down Elementary shortly, but first a brief note on The Office's series finale:



i started crying when Pam gave her speech about how the documentary was hard to watch and she hopes she inspires other people to go for what they want overtop footage from the Beach Games coal walk

and then i pretty much cried all the rest of the way through

(it's possible i'm still crying now)

The Office might not be the show I love the most, but it is absolutely the show I've loved longest, and I am way more emotional than I anticipated about it coming to an end. The Office was the first show I started watching week by week, the first show I talked about with friends and classmates in high school, and the first show I liked enough to dig out illegal online streams of every episode I'd missed. I started watching The Office in my formative teen years, and it played a big role in shaping my expectations for comedy and television in general. It ushered in an era of television that produced almost all of my favourite shows, and while there were seasons and story arcs where the quality dipped and it was certainly time for the show to end, I'm sad to see it go.


So goodbye, The Office. You always — well, usually — left me satisfied and smiling.

I'm pretty satisfied with the way they wrapped up most things. Still not at all happy with this past season. And I didn't think this was the best episode ever. But I liked what they did with most of the characters. Jim and Pam happy ever after. Dwight and Angela married. Stanley retired! Erin found her birth parents. Nelly got a baby..... ??? SORT OF. LOL.

The best part was Michael showing up. That made me happy.
