We have to get used to the idea, but it's a fact now. No more Michael Scott in "The Office". I think it's going to be very weird, but it doesn't necessarely mean the show is going to lose its power. There are so many great characters left. Pam, Jim, Andy, Stanley, Oscar, Dwight, Angela, you name it. I admit it's not going to be the same, but I'm still excited for season 8. Especially after seeing this cool promo picture for next season.
I think it's awesome!
