The more I reflect, the more I am pissed. He was a great vintage British guy, gave great texture to the office and always proved interesting. His attitudes and perspective were well constructed and thoughtfully written into the show. I just dont understand why they wrote him off.
Now what? Another boring ass affair? Another gay character (as if every show on earth doesnt have on already)? Another ethnicity?
Bad move on the part of the writers. I realize Lane, now that he's gone, was actually my favorite character on the show.
Is it possible he scored a new show or movie and had to leave? I dont think it makes sense any other way. I cant imagine they wrote him off by choice.
