Nowhere near! Michael would've delivered so much better - Ed Helms just doesn't shine a light on Steve Carrell.
I wonder did they go with Ed Helms purely because of the commercial success of The Hangover and The Hangover 2? It good to have a Hollywood star fronting your TV show in the states, I only wonder this because the promotion character wise makes no sense.
Andy was the worse sales person in the Office, and a total goof, I can't see how he would get a promotion.
That's probably it! I genuinely can't see any other reason. Stanley would have made a bit more interesting boss - having to actually partake in meetings rather than his usual just sitting there with a crossword.
I don't have high hopes for the Office and may have to take it off my Friday morning viewing list.
Actually, I was just thinking, pre-anger management Andy would be much better.
Thats totally it.
That was easily the worst episode Ive ever seen, hate the new boss.
I disagree, I like Andy as the new boss. Pam is definitely very preggers. I also agree, nobody should be planking!
The show feels really weird without Michael.
Oh yeah Pam is fecking horrible now aswell, she was only good as eye candy because she definitely isn't funny or interesting.
Maybe it's because I remember some of his Daily Show stuff but I like Andy a lot. They need to do something with his character other than turn him into Micheal. There were some clear signs of them trying to do that to him.
One of my favourite shows..
It's really peculiar that they did an entire episode dedicated to Phylis' wedding and then Pam and Jim's, but they only mentioned that Angela got married in passing.
Thought it was a very good episode and up there with many of them over the last number of years.
Didn't miss Michael at all.
I actually enjoyed the first episode. It had some funny moments and i forgot all about michael.
I have always liked andy so I don't mind him getting the promotion even if, as mentioned, is a bit stupid considering his track record as a salesman.
Overall, I think it showed potential and some people seem to forget how stale this show had become.
Possibly because they know the marriage isn't going to last because the husband is gay
There would've been plenty of material for that wedding episode, especially for Oscar.
Great point, I would have loved that idea.
I did read somewhere they're are trying to limit the number of episodes they do outside the office this season. But they could have come up with a storyline excuse like because he is a senator he didn't want a documentary crew filming him wedding, etc....
Not a good episode at all this week, James Spader adds absolutely nothing and Andy is a rubbish boss.
I somewhat enjoyed it actually - quite liked how they were all watching Andy get his ass tattooed.
