Until an official one is made, I thought I'd just write a few things regarding last nights episode.

1. Really enjoyed it. It appears the show is going to indeed be more of a "group" show and I think it could be successful.
2. I liked Andy as the boss, I thought he was the best choice as they clearly couldn't give it to Dwight and it's kind of been there, done that with Jim. I'm still not sure why anyone wanted the job in the office considering they can make more as salesman...but Andy isn't a great salesman, so he made sense once again.

Feel free to move this over to the official thread when it starts...I just wanted to talk about it and there wasn't one yet :)

I figured they would pick Andy, mostly because of Ed Hemls's recent popularity with The Hangover and all - I think it was 40 Year Old Virgin that helped make the show a success in the first place with Steve. I've always been a fan of Andy and I love what they have done with him as manager. Andy, the always-unsure guy, is perfect for a manager in this office, especially with the addition of Spader. Those two play off each other perfectly. I also love the focus on the group now. Obviously this isn't going to ever be as good as seasons 2-4 to me but I still love it. Hopefully they can ride this out for 2 or so more seasons.

I agree it made sense. Andy was very "Michael-like" to me. That said, you knew it wouldn't be Jim (IMO) and Dwight already showed why he shouldn't be in charge...

Yea, I knew it wasn't going to be Jim or Dwight either, but I was holding out hope for Darryl. I really thought he would've been good in that role. I liked how they addressed his candidacy in the past episode. Darryl and Andy together is always good stuff. :thumbup:

I still like Andy but I feel like since the middle of last season he just hasn't been as funny as he was in S3-6. I can't tell if it's the writing or Ed's acting or what. Anyone else been thinking the same?
