Life after Michael Scott

Monday, April 4, 2011

Morning, Darlings. Let's start the day with a bit of Office gossip, shall we? As Rainn Wilson already broke the news: Micheal Scott left the building and Will Ferrell is stepping into his shoes (for the time being, anyway), I can't help feeling a bit sad about it all. (Especially after watching that video). Do you think Will is the right choice for the part? Do you think the show can go on without Steve Carell?

Also, as I'm such a sucker for a good old fashioned romance and I totally adore the whole Pam and Jim story line. Here is a very heartfelt video of their love story that Jessica very cleverly put together. It's awesome, you can't miss it! Promise :). Aren't they sweet? xoxo

I'm not sure how I feel about the switch either. Back in Season one I used to hate Michael... but I've grown so fond of him over time. I'll definitely miss him!!

You know, I've never watched the American Office, only the British one. Will Farrell is great, I'm sure he'll work out well.

Happy Monday, Love!

This show was unknown to me but thank you for sharing it and I appreciate the introduction. XX

Kristin said...

I was pretty excited when I heard about Will coming on board for four episodes. I think he'll make a great transition guy, but The Office will never be the same without Michael!

um definitely maybe might have cried a tear watching jim&pam! cutest couple ever!

Something Old, Something New said...

Love the show, but I think it's going to be a little weird with Will Ferrell in it. For some reason it just seems like he won't mesh as well with the cast... guess we'll have to see.

Diana Mieczan said...

Aw..me too, Marissa and they are so cute together:)

photohogger said...

Awww...I know! We're gonna miss Michael Scott! I think Will is a good choice, though; he'll be funny, am sure! Jim and Pam....super cute; who doesn't love their story-line??
Happy Monday dear!

I stopped watching the show this season. Other than the Pam-Jim storyline it just wasn't entertaining anymore. I'm not sure this replacement is going to help any. Sorta sad.

Michael Scott is one of a kind, but Will Ferrell will bring a great vibe!

i'm interested to see how will does in the role. i love the jim-pam story :)

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

well, it shall be interesting, won't it? i love will ferrel, but we'll just have to wait and see. :)

Rebecca said...

Honestly, I don't think it's for real. Will Ferrell is making too much money as a movie star to step into a television roll. I think it's just a way to boost ratings while they transition Steve Carell out of the show. I just have a hard time believing Will Farrell is really replacing him. But I guess we'll see.

The Wise Take said...

I love Pam and Jim too, but I'm going to miss Michael :(

christine donee said...

I haven't watched this show in a REALLY long time. (gasp!) I know, I know. Lame. But I can't help but be addicted to all the drama around it. What can I say, I'm weird like that.

Amber Blue Bird said...

I didnt think the show could go on without him but I really like Will so I will for sure still be watching

Styles 'n Cream said...

I am going to miss Steve Carell but Will Farrel is so funny that he might be a good replacement. We shall see ...

Kayla said...

I'm not sure how good of a switch it will be but I can't let go of my Pam and Jim time yet.

i am sad that steve carell is leaving. also a bit disappointed that will arnett didn't replace him..!

Samantha said...

When I heard that Steve Carell was leaving I thought "hmm the show is going to be canceled after this season", but Will Ferrell is going to be an interesting replacement. I'm sure he will do a similar character to Micheal Scott but it will be interesting to see how he spins it.

Eliza Jane said...

Oh wow, I love love love the romance video! I was seriously almost choked up at the end, I'm such a romantic! Thank you for posting that!! Isn't it just the perfect romance?!

Diana Mieczan said...

Eliza, it really is and I was totally emotional by the end of that video:)

Diana Mieczan said...

That is interesting, Rebecca and Amber, I will be watching as well:)

Courtney Erin said...

I just don't think it's going to be the same without Michael - it's sad that he's leaving!

i love michael's character and steve plays it so perfectly. it's gonna be hard to watch without him, and will can definitely be a bit of an over-actor. But i'm hoping they'll right it to fit well. they seem to be good at that, with the only exception being, possibly, the IT guy that nobody remebered his name. he didn't mesh well

Michelle said...

I love Will Ferrell but he's not a TV actor - I wonder how long he'll stay? I love Jim & Pam too - I have the casino episode on my ipod so I watch it and watch their first kiss. So adorable.

I am excited to see Will Ferrell on the show, but I am SO sad to see Steve Carell leave. I really, really can't imagine how the show will continue without him...

DB said...

I love Jim and Pam so much! Thanks for posting that video! It made me smile. :)

Laura *You Stir Me* said...

I've been a fan of The Office from the show's beginning and I think it's going to be hard to see someone else in Michael Scott's shoes, even if it is Will Ferrell. I'll of course still watch it, but I think it'll be different from here on out.

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

I've only ever seen the UK one, so for me it's hard to imagine the US version. The characters are all linked so closely to the British actors that I can't even imagine Steve Carell in it. It's always the first version that stays with you.

SJ said...

i love will ferrell so it will be interesting to see how he goes but steve carell has been pretty damn awesome. i don't think anyone can replace michael scott!

La Feem said...

Jim & Pam rule...I agree, it will be interesting to see Will try..xoxo

Melanie's Randomness said...

I'm totally sad!! I hope Ferrel doesn't over do it!! =)

i never watch the office but will tune in to see how will does!

Morgan said...

I secretly wish Jim and Pam were a real couple!!

Alena said...

LOVE this show!!!

Kirsty said...

Nawwww!!!! :(
Steve is sooo funny in that role. It's amazing what he did for that character.
Will's great too... but I can't see it being as realistic somehow.

Casa Bella said...

I stopped watching the show a few months ago. Somehow it stopped being funny to me. However, Steve Carrell is so wonderful and sort of the heart of the show. (in my opinion) that I don't know that I would start watching it again if he leaves.

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Even though I think The Office hasn't been as good the last couple seasons as it used to be, I still watch it and love Steve Carrell. I also love Will Ferrel though, so I don't know. I think Steve Carrell will be missed very much!

jessicaevekennedy said...

Hey, I'm glad you liked my video!! Always funny to see where it's being posted on the host statistics feature - lol! I do love them.

Not Will's biggest fan but it's only a short arc crossing over from Steve's episodes, and I'm actually more excited to see Will Arnett and Ricky Gervais' cameos in the finale.

But I will miss Michael Scott terribly. I think the show's evolved but it's not any worse or better than the general standard that they've upheld throughout. I think it's just different and not everyone likes the same change. I'll always tune in to The Office whilst Krasinski's in that place. I'm hoping they regress back to Season 2 Jim vs. Dwight mode - that was always super entertaining! :)

Meghan said...

The Office is one of my favorite TV shows, and I do like Will Farrell, but it just won't be the same without the Michael Scott we know and love!
