Ricky Gervais on The Office Finale: Major Shark Jumping!

at . Comments

TV Fanatic critic Dan Forcella isn't the only one who didn't love The Office season finale.

Ricky Gervais, who was one of many big guest stars on the concluding episode, blogged yesterday that the installment focused far too much on cameos than on actual storyline development. Or humor.

"If you're going to jump a shark, jump a big one," wrote the British comedian, adding: "I assume most people know I didn't do the U.S. remake for the art. I did my version for the art. That's why I stopped it after a few hours of telly."

Gervais later backed off and said the jabs were a bit of "self-deprecating" humor, but we don't disagree with his take. Did Will Arnett really bring anything to his role, aside from a distraction?

Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An improversation.

When I was in college I used to get wicked hammered. My nickname was Puke. I would chug a fifth of SoCo, sneak into a frat party, polish off a few people's empties, some brewskies, some Jell-O shots, do some body shots off myself, pass out, wake up the next morning, puke, rally, more SoCo, head to class. Probably would have gotten expelled if I had let it affect my grades, but I aced all my courses. They called me Ace. It was totally awesome. Got straight Bs. They called me Buzz.
