For the millionth time, I am so glad that The Office is back on my Thursday nights. Whew.
Also, that’s two episodes in a row where we have almost intolerable Michael antics. I was shocked, appaled and beside myself with frustration as he went out on the date with the very sweet and very lovely Brooke Dillman. (I bet he would be a lot nicer if her knew that on top of collecting the rent check, she was also a Home Economics teacher to Seth and Evan from Superbad!) I found it hilarious that Stanley “didn’t hate anyone enough” to give Michael their name and number. What the eff, we need a redeeming Michael moment. And fast.
I thought that Kevin and Andy were brilliant. The “Five Families” and Kevin’s threats to quit were cracking me up. I also adore Andy. Potential new favorite character.
But the Big Fish: Jim and Pam!!!
Nervewrecking, folks. Because I just don’t see this ending well at all. Pam loves Jim. She’s in love with Jim, no doubt. But she’s not ready to give up her independence and marry him yet. I was nervous when she lost her smile after he told her he’s going to propose to her, but I became terrified when he told us that he bought the ring a week after they started dating. And when they were walking outside of work, and he pulled the shoe tie line (which, by the way, I have been a personal recipient of by my friend Nick), I didn’t know what was going to happen. I know Pam loves Jim, but I don’t know if Pam wants to marry Jim right now. All I’m saying is that the season cliffhanger will be Pam’s response to the sweetest marraige proposal ever. That’s all I’m saying.
Gahhhh, how much longer until next Thursday!?
It’s Back! And of course, it’s one of those more serious than silly episodes, but that’s okay. We’ve missed out on a lot and I am sure that they want to get the story to a certain place before the season finale. I understand/respect/appreciate their efforts very much so. I tend to enjoy these episodes because the characters (with credit to the actors) do have these really deep and intricate sides that we don’t get to see when they’re busy chasing bats out of the office. While this episode was awkward and uncomfortable to the nth degree, I think it was a good and important one to give us a “Okay, this is where these characters are at now” storyline.
Angela and Andy: Did you know that the real Angela is pregnant? I was curious as to how they were going to film a baby bump, but they didn’t! Not once! All night! I find Andy to be one of the funniest characters on the show. And there is nothing that is “more wrong” than Andy and Angela dating. Okay, well, maybe Dwight dating his babysitter, but still. That being said, i am almost positive that “Monkey” is dating Andy in an effort to make Dwight upset and jealous. I don’t think she wants him back, but I don’t think she wants to really date someone as secular as he. Which is hilarious, because that’s only going to get crazier.
Jim and Pam: John, I’m not quite sure what you mean here, because I am utterly in love with the Jim and Pam were getting. Maybe it’s something I’m not seeing, but I thought they were hilariously sweet trying to power through this dinner party together. I love the way that Pam’s face lit up when Jim came out to let everyone know that his apartment was flooded. And Jim and Pam’s separate bathroom confessionals cracked me up. As far as I can tell, all is still good on that front. But have no fear, I am sure that they’re gearing up to throw a wrench in before the season finale. Though in my personal opinion, I’d rather the season not end on a Jim/Pam cliffhanger, though I know it will.
And, of course, Jan and Michael. Jan is absolutely, without a doubt 100% insane. She’s off her rocker nuts and it’s hilarious. As if we didn’t know that the dinner party was going to be uncomfortable, the obsessive pet name calling of “babe” and “honey” was just increasingly unnerving. I love her “office” and “workspace” and how incredibly well Jim let us know just how terrible those candles smelled. And Michael’s “bed” was tragically awful. I think this is going to be our big story arc for the next 4 episodes and I am okay with that. I was never crazy about Jan, but I find crazy Jan absolutely terrifying. I think she loves Michael, and I think she cares about him and obviously is protective (believing Michael’s lie about dating Pam!) but I think also that she is in love with the idea of being home all the time and not doing anything except being an “artist.” I really want to see Michael’s life on the beet farm, but I know I must be patient. They can’t spoil us too bad too quickly.
What did you think, Kids?
No amount of sleep deprivation, illness, busy scheduling or whathaveyou will keep be from bringing back Scrantonicity IN FULL FORCE on the day that we get OFFICE BACK IN OUR LIVES!!!
I’ve missed it more than anything and need it back more than ever. It’s been too long and though we’ve only got a few episodes to go until the end of the season, I have a feeling they’re going to remind us each and every Thursday why they’re the best show on television.
I am very excited, Kids.
Dress up nice! We’re going to a Dinner Party at Michael’s!
(Don’t miss Earl and 30 Rock, too!!!)
Holy crap. This thing has really fallen off, hasn’t it.
Well, I feel like today is as good a day as any to get it back in gear. For today is DAY ONE back at the filming of The Office. And if my good friends over at Dunder Mifflin Scranton are getting back to work, then I suppose I should, too. So, today is the beginning of a new with you, Blog. Everyday I’ll try and put up something. No matter how mundane or silly it may seem. Yippie!
(On an Office side note, if you haven’t noticed, Angela Martin is VERY pregnant and VERY showing. So, I’m quite curious as to how this is going to play into our remainder season… hmm…)
The WGA Strike is OVA’.
Welcome back, TV.
We’re gonna be BLOWIN’ UP the Scrantonicity when this thing gets back on it’s steady Thursday night stance.
The Office is slated for another six episodes this season, which still makes me nervous, and slightly upset because we’re getting screwed out of our extended season… but they didn’t say that those six episodes weren’t… hour… long… epsiodes?…. I’m just sayin’.
I never get to watch that much superfluous TV.
But tonight I am tuned in to Vh1 to watch What Perez Sez. BUT! I love Vh1 because this January they’re starting Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant! I TRULY, DEEPLY, PASSIONATELY do not like Scott Baio. But I got sick and odd pleasure from the few episodes of Scott Baio is 45 and Single that I did see. Mainly because he’s just a total jerk and it was massively entertaining. Guys, if The Office isn’t back, we’re seriously going to dive head first into Scott Baio Reality Television. And it’s going to be evil, torturous, and spectacularly awful.
After Thursday night’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, I was pretty sure that I was in love with Mr. Olbermann, again. Mainly because of the video contained in this link. I’m asking you, nay, begging you to watch it. Keith’s “Special Comments” are always intelligent, inspiring, passionate and everything we need to hear at that moment in time. This one is the best one I’ve ever seen, and that’s no lie.
But then, last night, as if it was some sort of signal to me that he and I are in fact meant to be, he did a “Special COME ON” about the return of my favorite family, The Bluths, not to my living room, but in fact to a movie theater near me. Seriously, watch this video. RIGHT NOW!
Keith! Baby! It’s meant to be! We’ll totally invite our friends, The Bluths.
Mose takes a break from raising beets and chasing cars to write this outstanding blog about the writers’ strike that’s still taking place out in Hollywood and offers up a solution that a girl can get behind.
The big news up here in Cincinnati last week was the potential Kroger strike. That didn’t happen. Lots of hoopla and no chaos, no burning buildings and no fire sales on frozen turkeys. Pffft.
There will, however be chaos in Ol’ Number Fif-teen as your friend and humble narrator just might pitch a shit over the fact that there are only two new episodes of The Office left this season. That’s right, Kids, production of The Office shut down for the season on Tuesday and will remain shut down until the strike is over. Which is going to be sometime between next Wednesday and 2063. Desperate House*bleep*s and a few other sprinkling of shows have already shut down, and if you’re like me, you’ll notice your DV-R has stopped recording new episodes of The Report and The Daily Show. Quite simply because there aren’t any. If the writers will strike, so will the DV-R. It’s a tragic ripple effect. I’m also terror-fied that the last episode of The Office that we see is going to be some sort of awful tragic cliffhanger that’s going to send me into a spiral of anxiety and depression.
In all seriousness though, I fully support the writers and hope that this all can get sorted out soon. If not, I’m going to have to bring in my 5 special negotiation tactics when I’m home for Christmas. Four of these involve baked good bribery.
Man, that Hollywood. She’s one tough town.
(For more strike information, check out these links:
- Office-specific coverage has been handled beautifully by Tanster over at OfficeTally.
- Deadline Hollywood Daily is a pretty good round-up of all strike related news.
- And Ain’t It Cool News has a good article with lots of snippets about other involved parties in the strike.
- Also, writer/director James Gunn (and Jenna Fischer’s ex-husband) has written an extremely honest blog on the strike right here. )
When the last new episodes of our favorite shows have aired, we’re going to start a post where you’re going to recommend to me and your fellow interns TV shows that we should check out or catch up on via the magic of DVD. So start thinkin’ Lincoln!
