it looks like it was made by a two-year-old monkey  
Wrote my last exam today! So I officially have a whole three days of "summer" before I start work on Monday, lol. Saturday is bff's going-away party because she's moving to Thailand for the summer, which kind of sucks. And then I start work like a real person. :O Scary.

My thoughts in a gif:



Awww, I liked this episode. This show has definitely had some rough patches seasons, but I think they mostly pulled themselves together this year as a send-off for Michael/Steve Carell, and I thought this episode was quite good. Considering the character of Michael was so obnoxious about 85% of the time, it's always a shocking surprise when they make him actually sympathetic, and they managed to carry that throughout this entire episode. The individual goodbyes were (almost) all nice -- the horrible scarecrow he made for Oscar and then the talking head about it had me dying, Erin's was sweet, the Jim and Dwight ones were good, and the Pam-at-the-airport scene was... kind of what I anticipated, though I didn't call the mic-less conversation aspect. It's interesting when the show remembers it is supposed to be a mockumentary. I also liked the touch about him asking them to tell him when it airs. (lol, they've been filming for SEVEN YEARS and it's never aired yet?)

I didn't care at all about the Andy/Deangelo B-plot, but I also get the impression they didn't expect me to care. It was like they weren't trying, lirl. I also don't care that Phyllis might be Erin's mom wtf? Right now the plan is to not watch until the season finale, which I am only watching for the fabulous Catherine Tate and what will undoubtedly be a five-second cameo, rofl.

All in all, I think it was a good should-be finale and it is a shame the show is not allowed to go out on this high note and instead must continue to flounder until it eventually dies like a beached whale.

Between Michael leaving and my abrupt decision to flounce from HIMYM, my TV-watching schedule suddenly seems wide open. Hmmmm. These vacancies are hard to fill due to me indescribable but particular tastes.

At least Parks & Rec has been absolutely on point every single episode this season.

When did you abruptly flounce from HIMYM? I feel as though there should have been a memo and I missed it. BUT HOW WILL I KNOW WHO THE WEDDING IS ABOUT IF YOU DON'T WATCH.

I saw "spoilers" or whatever about the wedding, which was basically the writers going LOL YOU WON'T FIND OUT WHO BOTH THE BRIDE AND GROOM ARE LOL WE'RE GOING TO KEEP TEASING THIS WEDDING FOR TWO YEARS BECAUSE WE AS WRITERS ONLY KNOW HOW TO TEASE AND NEVER HOW TO RESOLVE ALSO PS THE WEDDING ENDS BADLY SO WHY WOULD YOU EVEN CARE

how i met your mother has one more finale to keep me, but who am i kidding, it will status quo my ass in the premiere once again no matter what happens.

I HAVE GIVEN IT ONE FINALE TOO MANY

also the stuff I've read about this year's finale just pissed me off so w/e HIMYM we are done professionally, even though I thought your last episode was alright I know that your writers don't ever resolve anything because all they know how to do is drop hooks and hope people will play along for five years.

I agree with your thoughts on The Office. I thought they did a good job with the episode and his goodbye, and my favorite parts were the ones with Dwight, Jim, and Pam. LOL @ Oscar.

I AM SO EXCITED FOR CATHERINE TATE KALI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Oscar one I totally forgot about but it had me laughing the hardest. HE HAS THE LOWEST OPINION OF ME OF ANYONE!

CATHERINE TATE. I am bracing myself for her 2 second cameo and my rage when Ray Romano inevitably gets more lines and screentime than her flawless self.

Lol I am amused that this weekend I get more holiday than you for NO REASON AT ALL and this is your summer.

BUT THINK OF ENGLAND, KALI. :D :D :D

l refuse to give up on HTMYM. ~Hope springs eternal~ or something like that. Plus the jokes are sometimes still funny. heh.

The Office was so full of sad this week! The next two weeks are going to be painful while we inevitably wait around for Deangelo's outster. AND THEN CATHERINE TATE. AND SHUT UP. SHE WILL HAVE MORE THAN JUST A 5 SECOND CAMEO. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT THAT IS ALL SHE WILL BE DOING.
Kali_thirty2flavors on April 29th, 2011 07:10 pm (UTC)
I have been on the verge of flouncing from HIMYM for like a year and a half now, so it is nice to finally just cut and run, lol.

Yeah I don't care about Deangelo. I plan to just wait for the finale but I might get bored enough next Thursday that I cave, lol. I AM PREPARING MYSELF FOR MINIMAL CATHERINE TATE SO THAT I CANNOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

I also don't care that Phyllis might be Erin's mom wtf?

wat

it is a shame the show is not allowed to go out on this high note and instead must continue to flounder until it eventually dies like a beached whale.

People on the internet are like "PHYLLIS GAVE UP A BABY AND ERIN WANTS TO MEET HER MOM OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Isn't that the truth.
Aliaanonymouscatt on April 30th, 2011 12:13 am (UTC)
Hahaha I loved the "Will you guys let me know if this ever airs?" I think when the show does end they should have a scene where the 'documentary' finally comes out and everyone sits down to watch it. Could be funny. :)

I was miffed that Catherine Tate was not in any of the trailers for the finale though. I have mentioned that she will be in the episode to my parents and so far they don't believe me, since none of the promo material is supporting that statement. >_
