Because I don’t. I know some other people will, but can we just be honest? The show has sucked for the past several seasons. Michael Scott is just awkward, Dwight is weird and uncharming, and the Jim and Pam storyline has descended into Ross and Rachel territory — now that they’re together, there is nothing left to tell. The wedding and baby jokes are old. The tension is gone. Let it go, man.
And so, when Steve Carrell tells People.com that if he leaves after this season, as his contract dictates, because “I just thought it was time for my character to go,” I would say, you’re right, Steve. It is. In fact, unless you want to be remembered as another sitcom that stayed around well past it’s expiration date, it’s time for all of you to go. Sorry, Jim. Once upon a time you were cute.
