Instead of doing anything productive, I spent the last two hours putting this together. Yes, it is two o'clock in the morning. YOU'RE WELCOME, INTERNET.




This was the series finale of the short-lived spinoff of The Office, THE MICHAEL SCOTT PAPER COMPANY, which is so sad, because it lasted for such a short time but had such an impact on all of our lives. Compelling television, people.

But it's okay! Because it's being replaced by its new spinoff:






RYAN: Ever since I've gotten clean there's something about fresh morning air that... just really makes me sick.



This picspam quickly devolved into: SEE HOW CLOSE THE WRITERS WILL ALLOW PAM AND RYAN TO SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER. READ WAY TOO MUCH INTO EVERY LITTLE GLANCE. LEGS CROSSED TOWARD EACH OTHER, THAT IS AN UNEQUIVOCAL SEX INVITE.

Um, yeah, I kind of ship them now? Like ridiculously so? You know how [livejournal.com profile] typicrobots did the whole Alterna-season-three picspams of Barney/Robin and had the brilliant theory of they're-actually-sleeping-together-the-whole-time going on? I think this needs to be done with Pam and Ryan. (SACRILEGE, I know, but Jim bores me so much.)






RYAN: I never went to Thailand.
PAM: Really?
RYAN: I went to Fort Lauderdale.
MICHAEL: Was it nice?
RYAN: (sarcastic) Yeah, it was amazing.


NEW FAVORITE FANON: Ryan went to Fort Lauderdale for rehab. I don't know why but I love the idea of it. OH RYAN HOWARD.



I think that was maybe my favorite scene of the episode. The three of them!! Commiserating! The way Pam reveals something embarrassing, and Ryan tells her the truth about Thailand, to make her feel less pathetic. It's kind of sweet. For the first time I think maybe we're not supposed to totally hate Ryan?? I've loved him especially hard ever since his fall from grace at Dunder Mifflin, but always figured the show would write him as nothing more than a one-note raging douchebag, so to see there is a possibility of layers is, like, thrilling for me. I find him way more interesting than Jim. Also, I really like douchebaggy characters?? Ha ha, I am a major dork.


RYAN: He's bluffing, Pam!

Okay, maybe I also love him because he hates Jim. JUST LIKE I DO MOST OF THE TIME.







MICHAEL: I don't care if Ryan murdered his entire family! He is like a son to me.

HAHAHAHAHA. Oh, Michael. Oh, Ryan's face.



CELEBRATORY CHAMPAGNE POPPING! Ryan refuses! Pam looks awkwardly at the camera! I find this little moment so endearing too.


Anyway, I really hope the season keeps up the quality of these past few episodes. I love the focus on Pam and Ryan and Michael (because it's one of those rare times Michael is actually kind of competent and awesome and likeable).

Oh, and you know what I realized? BJ Novak weirdly reminds me of Seth Meyers. I haven't pinpointed what it is, exactly, but he does. And I will totally be seeing Inglorious Bastards in the theater, because I now have a weird crush on him??? I don't even know, you guys, except earlier I was trolling for Pam/Ryan fic I haven't read yet. I may have a problem.
