The Office Finale a Big, Lovable Mess, Says PEOPLE's Critic

The Office Finale Was a Big, Frustrating, Lovable Mess, Says PEOPLE's Critic

Originally posted 05/17/2013 08:45AM

The series finale of The Office took up an hour and 15 minutes of NBC's prime-time schedule Thursday night. The last quarter-hour had a special sentimental magic, as we got parting moments with each of the characters at the Dunder Mifflin paper company of Scranton, Pa.

The rest you could have fed into a shredder.

After a season that carefully worked out significant narrative strands – the ultimately inevitable ascension to manager of the insufferable Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), the unexpectedly tender travails in the marriage of Jim and Pam (John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer) – this episode was poorly conceived and clumsily structured.

It really wasn't worthy of all the years of affectionate humor that had gone before it.

But even as The Office prepares to wrap its ninth and final season, the Kevin Malone actor is still not sick of his colleagues, who make the series' finale a bittersweet goodbye.

"Mine and, really, everyone's life has changed so much over this decade," Baumgartner, 40, told PEOPLE after serving as the grand marshal at Sunday's Subway Fresh Fit 500 race. "We've all grown up together. Our lives have all changed together. We've seen weddings and divorces and kids, success and failure."

As host of Film Independent's Spirit Awards, Rainn Wilson is forgoing traditional formal attire for a more revealing look.

"You see a lot of my unfortunate body," Wilson told PEOPLE about stripping down in pre-taped segments that will air with the show on Saturday on cable's IFC and AMC. "You see a lot of my body of work – let me put it that way." Specifically, Wilson says he plays to show off his "buttocks" for comic effect.

Looser than most award shows, the Spirit Awards will feature a fleet of taped skits featuring Wilson in "a lot of crazy getups," as he pokes fun of nominated films and actors. "The conceit is that I've auditioned for all the [movies] up for best picture, and that we've tracked down my audition tapes," he says. (Several clips have already surfaced online, including one hilarious segment in which Wilson attempts to audition for Michael Cera's role in Juno in skimpy jogging shorts.)
