'The Office' Season 7, Episode 24 (Season Finale) Recap

['The Office' - 'Search Committee']

Right off the bat, let me give this caveat to my review: Going in, I knew that this was going to be a very difficult episode for the writers of 'The Office' to pull off.

'The Office' - 'Search Committee'
The first degree of difficulty was that the episode was an hour, which is not something that this show has excelled at in the past. The second degree of difficulty was the multitude of guest stars -- as candidates -- parading through Dunder Mifflin Scranton, each with their own character flaws on display.

But the third degree of difficulty is that, without some sort of manager to kiss up to or hate, the atmosphere around the show feels rudderless. It's probably the reason why the episodes in which Deangelo and Dwight were the boss more or less worked, whereas this episode and Michael-less stories from earlier this year didn't.

There was a story here -- the search for a new manager -- and you have a pretty good idea who the most viable candidates for the job are by the end of the episode. But in a lot of ways, this felt like a series of sketches in search of a plot.

Will Ferrell's Deangelo Vickers also returns for the season 7 finale.

Despite all the guest stars, all the rumors we've heard indicate a veteran 'Office' employee will take the boss role.

Hey kids! It's Warren Buffett!

warren buffett cartoonBillionaire investor Warren Buffett has some financial advice... for kids. He is going to provide the voice for a kids' cartoon series that provides basic lessons about finances and economics. Thirteen episodes of the cartoon, called The Secret Millionaire's Club, are already in production. The premise of the show is about a group of kids in Omaha who find a box of sports memorabilia that turns out to be very valuable. After making millions on the sale, the kids each become secret millionaires, investing their money based on advice from Warren Buffet. The company behind the project is DIC Entertainment and they're not sure yet if the cartoons will go directly to DVD or if someone will actually want to air them on television.

I'm not sure what age of kids these cartoons are supposed to target. One of the creators said it's important for kids to understand basic finance so, when they graduate high school, they don't make the mistake of getting a bunch of pre-approved credit cards. I agree. But, do kids watch this kind of stuff? Really?
