        This season of the Office has been great. Last season jumped shark a little, and imo it was because they made Andy the Boss, but I think this season is as funny as the earlier seasons. I’m sad it’s ending, but it’s going out with a bang!

  • “The half-hour project, from Brian Gallivan (Are You There, Chelsea?) and Will Gluck (Andy Richter Controls the Universe)…”.

    With those credentials, I’m not holding out much hope.
