IGN The Office: "Goodbye, Michael" Review

IGN: I must apologize in advance if this review gets a little maudlin. I've just finished watching "Goodbye, Michael" and I'm still adjusting to the reality of a post-Michael-Scott world. No more silly conference room scenes. No more outrageous characters (though at least we got to see a final glimpse of Ping tonight). No more "that's what she said." I may look back on this episode later and wonder what got me all choked up, but right now it feels like I just experienced one of those historic television moments that will be included in montages for years to come.

This definitely was a good one, and it's sad seeing the era of Michael Scott come to an end. I managed not to get choked up, though (maybe simply because others were in the room lol).

I thought it was a really well done episode, though, that really mirrored Steve Carell's idea that he didn't want it to be a huge strictly going away party for him.

I think it was actually best, too, that they didn't make this the final episode of the season. Get him out a few episodes early that way people can get accustomed to The Office sans Michael Scott for a few episodes and not spend the whole time mourning his departure until next season.

Really good episode. Sad to see him go. I still can't imagine anyone replacing him.

I found it a little disappointing personally. I'm liking Will Ferrell's character less and less the more I see him.

same here. but overall i dont really like to see anything about him.

Will Ferrell's character might not be staying.

My vote is for Jim Carrey!!! or Rain Wilson
