Andy is back as regional manager, but finds his true calling is in showbiz. Will this finally put Dwight in charge? Jim lands the job of his dreams in Philadelphia, which means big changes for Pam and Darryl. Back at the office, Erin struggles with matters of the heart, Nellie meddles in everyone’s affairs, and Angela discovers that her dream marriage isn’t quite what it seems.
It's the sort of American Dream job - and job security - many people stopped believing in eons ago. That's why we loved The Office and hated the office. It was meant to look real, but it was pure escapism all along.
The arrival of the new guys forces Jim to realize he's trapped in the job he despised back when he was that young. I've been waiting for this character arc for years now, and the scenes were promising (if not incredibly funny).
Good comedies make you laugh. Great ones also make you cry. The Office proved why it belongs in the latter camp with a series finale full of the poignancy you'd expect from a comedy that was never afraid to show its heart.
