Tv Season Info

Three months prior to the premiere, NBC confirmed that Season 7 would be Steve Carell's last season headlining the cast (as Michael G. Scott, Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company's Scranton Branch). The season served to send off Carell in typical, hilarious fashion. Notable story lines from Season 7: Michael is compelled by his corporate bosses to undergo counseling, facilitated by his office nemesis, HR rep Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein); Andy (Ed Helms), feeling jealous of a former college buddy's successful music career, starts an office band with warehouse foreman Darryl (Craig Robinson) and accountant Kevin (Brian Baumgartner); and, filmmaker wannabe Michael finally presents his action movie, titled "Threat Level Midnight," to Holly (Amy Ryan) and the rest of the staffers (this, after he spent 11 long years of writing, filming, re-filming and then re-filming again). Season guest stars include: Ricky Gervais, Timothy Olyphant, Will Arnett, Ray Romano, James Spader, and Jim Carrey.

The two stories form a nice sense of balance, which is an intelligent decision on a number of levels.

It's not something most comedy writers ever get much practice at, but thanks to the Jim and Pam of it all, The Office has had many opportunities to figure out how to make love's big milestones feel big, and funny and sweet.

As the series tries to reestablish itself in preparation for his absence, the season will ideally play out like this episode did: with a mix of high jinks and heart.

The really ingenious element of "The Search" is the way that, for even the space of a single episode, we don't just imagine The Office without Carell, we kind of look forward to it.

The thing The Office does best is to be funny. The other thing it does really well (and gets less credit for) is to explore the melancholy. This has provided both catharsis and escapism during the recession.
