Re: Build-Up to The Office Finale
The show is so much better when the wackiness is somewhat plausible. Carell was written wackier and wackier to the point of not seeming to be someone who could realistically function as a human being. That was then transferred on to Helms and really brought down the whole show. Removing both of them from the picture has really helped to bring back some of that realism and the show is really benefiting from it.
