I thought this was the funniest and best episode I've seen in a while.My favorite parts were the Spader segments, especially his "soul read" of Dwight. I'd actually like to see Spader come back and get the job, a slightly more serious, deadpan personality (aside from Dwight of course) might do the office well. Plus those 2 going back and forth at each other would be super funny.I agree with wakefield, Creed as Manager was great!2 seconds of Jim Carrey at the end... not enough for me.

Based on the interviews, it didn't seem like it could be either of them.
I would put money on it being one of them because they have been discussing them both for a couple months now. I read one thing awhile back that said they will not be promoting anyone currently on the Office to the position and will bring in another actor to take over. They said last week they really want Tate but she just started a big play in London alongside David Tennant that might cause conflicts in taping.

Steve,

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

I think this is the only way I would look forward to next season. Spader's awesome. I don't know if Tate would be so happy living in the US--I think she has some anxiety/depression issues, and I don't know if a big move like that (either uprooting her family, or living separate from them) would do anything good for her.

Finally caught up after watching all of season 7 over the weekend.I'll agree with anyone that says the show isn't as funny as it used to be, but I still think it has it's moments, and I'm sure I'll continue to watch next season.I think this was my favorite moment from this season...

The cold open tonight was definitely one of the funniest they've ever done. Episode overall was pretty good.

Just shows how much we've been missing the Jim/Dwight prank thing. But agreed.

Also Catherine Tate was just awesome. I kind of wish she had been the one to become branch manager now.

I'm guessing so do the show's writers and actors.

Well it looks like she'll have a recurring role for at least a few more episodes. And yeah, she was great.-----------------Creed: It's so peaceful, I've already written like twelve plays today.
Karl: She was a bit -- what's the word that you can use, cuz I don't wanna offend anyone?
Steve: Was she a homeless person?
Karl: Yeah but sort of mental homeless.

Really enjoyed the past couple of weeks. I was surprised to read bad reviews of them, because I laughed quite a bit.

The Florida storyline has been awesome. I didn't realize people were giving them bad reviews, I've found the last two weeks to be the funniest they've done in a long time.

Anyone catch the season premiere? I thought it was really good. Final season, so it'll be interesting to see how they wrap it up. I think the obvious (and fine by me) choice would be a season finale where they travel to Colorado for Michael and Holly's wedding.

There were some good individual moments, like Creed at the end, but overall that was really bad. Office seems like a former championship team that's just lost too many key pieces to retirement or trade.

Someone tweeted about the open of the season premier being awful and in poor taste. Something about I turtle.

I quit the show 5 eps into the post Michael era

Yeah I thought it was lame also. They killed the Dwight/Angela baby storyline in like 5 seconds. We learned that Jim doesn't want to be stuck at Dunder Mifflin forever (which has been his storyline since season 1). Just a crap show now with crappy writing.

I'm still watching though. I'm too invested.

My roommate and I had a bet on whether the baby would be Angela's husband's, Dwight's, or another party. We bet $20. I got Angela's husband, Dwight was a push, and my roommate took the field.

Easily the best episode of the season. One review I read mentioned how it proves that this show really doesn't need someone in a manager role to be successful.
