tv: bottle up old love, and throw it out to sea

The love I speak of today is my love for Steve Carell. He is a brilliant comedian: his work always cheers me up no matter how depressed I am. I have yet to see Despicable Me, but I've heard great things about it, and I admit, I'm excited for Dinner For Shmucks.

So this is semi-old news, but I think it's worth mentioning. Living the typical American life, I am a huge fan of The Office. I DVR the old episodes and watch them constantly. When Steve Carell announced that he was only going to do one more season of The Office, well... it broke my heart.  Andy Bernard takes the title of my favorite character, but Michael Scott is the show. "The show is great, and the ensemble is so strong, and the writers are great, so it's just one part of that ensemble drifting off," is what Carell told E!, but I disagree with him. It just won't feel right without his antics and unawareness.

My theory is that the show will have an eighth season (with the seventh as Carell's last), but it will not go well at all, and then end on a bad note. Which would be a tragedy. Still, I'm interested to see who they'll choose as the new regional manager.

Peace out. G

  1. Lolz I love The Office too. It's really cool. I watch it pretty often, and I'm sad to see The Big Boss go. :( He was so awesome. Who's going to think up insanely stupid schemes now? D; It won't be the same. Lolz


  2. Despicable Me = AWESOME.

    I giggled through it. Cute minions <3

  3. The Office - Michael Scott = Bad Show

  4. The office is amazing but I couldn't see it being the same show once Carell is gone. In my opinion they should just leave it at season seven to save themselves some emberassment.

  5. I also think there will be an 8th season to The Office. We'll see how successful it is.
