Last night was the series finale of The Office. And It was a beautiful goodbye.
It had everything you could want from a finale. Happy endings, reunions with old friends (wink, wink), and a look back at the years past. In this case, the 9 years The Office spent on the air.
I realized something last night. More episodes of this show have brought me to tears than any other series on television. In fact it’s probably brought more tears from me than my own life has.
But that’s what happens when something sweet and beautiful touches your heart. Even if that thing is just a little television show about a bunch of office workers’ loves, lives and losses.
The stories of Michael, Jim, Pam, Dwight, Oscar, Angela, Kevin, Creed, Meredith, Ryan, Kelly, Darryl, Phyllis, Stanley, Andy and Erin had their highs and lows. But at the heart, it was great story telling and I will miss tuning in on Thursday nights.
I couldn’t envision a more fitting goodbye. So well done writers, cast and crew of The Office. And thank you for keeping this nerd in tears!
