Well, that certainly didn’t go as I expected. I had low expectations going in so I came out of watching this episode pleasantly surprised. I figured Will Ferrel would be nothing more than a caricature as usual. While there is nothing wrong with his usual routine, I was just worried it wouldn’t be a good fit with The Office.
As seen immediately in the pre-credits, Ferrel and Steve Carrel have natural chemistry. Some parts of the episode were rather uncomfortable but that’s what The Office has always been about.
No Holly this week…bummer. Only 2 more episodes to go (including a super-sized episode) before we say, ‘Goodbye Michael.’ I look forward to Michael’s last dundies, hopefully one more appearance from Holly and the emotional farewell for everyone’s favorite little kid lover.
