“The Office” has been on for 9 solid (well maybe 7 or 8 solid, 1 or 2 OK) seasons. The 90’s had Seinfeld and Friends while this generation laughed with The Office.
The show creators tried to keep it going without the main character, Michael Scott, who was played by Steve Carell. Mr. Carell was such an important piece of that show that there wasn’t much chance of it surviving without him. It was like “That 70’s Show” without Ashton Kutcher and Topher Grace or Scrubs without Zach Braff.
The final episode of “The Office” will air on May 16. In the meantime, NBC is doing a 10 episode web series honoring the show with past guest. I’m hoping for a Steve Carell visit at one point. The first video can be seen below with Will Ferrell being interviewed in his home telling stories about his 4 episode run as DeAngelo Vickers.
