Is the Office going to be permanently supersized?

leave a comment »

Interesting developments on The Office forefront.  GMMR has a mention about the upfront presentations at NBC, and they are apparently considering making The Office an hourlong show.

Honestly, I’m all for it.  I just hope that if it does indeed happen, they can keep the momentum in the episodes going.  Some of the longer episodes have dragged before….They were still good, but not the best ones.

It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out..If it does happen, I’m sure I’ll have yet another conflict in my TV shows overlapping….But it will be worth the sacrifice.

Sorry for the lack of news…

leave a comment »

The fact that it’s finals week at school does not make the fact that today is a slow news day any better.

Hopefully something of interest occurs this afternoon…

If not, at least we have Heroes to look forward to this evening.

Monday TV Preview

leave a comment »

Tonight is some good stuff….

Heroes“Five Years Gone”-Hiro and Future Hiro meet…..I’m sensing an X-Men-esque mutant registration scheme……based on what I’ve seen in previews, the future won’t be so good. I’m still thinking this will be a great episode. I heard rumblings that Matt (psychic) should be a little different…and we all know Claire gets a different shade of color in her hair. I’m wondering what Peter will be like…..I’m psyched!

24-1:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. – I’m not nearly as excited for this one anymore…Season 6 just can’t compare to the perfection that was Season 5. If they manage to pull a shocker of an ending or something, then I’ll be impressed….But ever since the nuclear bomb went off (and now apparently no one remembers)….this one has gone downhill….fast.

FOX canceled Drive already, which isn’t a great move in my opinion. Instead….House reruns…..yeesh.

Dwight Schrute IS Jim Halpert

with one comment

Remember the cold open from this week’s Office that has Jim impersonating Dwight (a spot-on impersonation I might add)….

Well, I never got a chance to watch the episode because of VCR technical difficulties  (why I wish I had a dual-tuner Tivo…yeesh), but later in the episode, Dwight impersonates Jim.

It’s pretty spot-on also…..They both have a good sense of the other…Check it out below.  These writers are geniuses!

Good news for Friday Night Lights!

leave a comment »

Watch with Kristin from E! has some good news for all us Friday Night Lights fans….

She has insider information that apparently is indicating the football-relationship drama will be picked up for a second season, or is at least well on its way to being picked up…They had already requested six additional scripts, which was a positive sign…. Travel arrangements and signing of the cast are these apparent indicators now….

I’m really glad to hear this information. I was a late addition to the show….Initially, I remember thinking how incredibly stupid the idea way, but then I decided to watch it, and it really is a great show.

Highly produced, great acting and camera work….It’s about so much more than football, and it’s good to see that the network is making an attempt to listen to fans and keep it on the air…..I wish we could say the same for FOX and their show Drive…..They pulled it way too fast!

Hopefully we’ll get an announcement in the coming weeks to make this official…..say around middle May.

Check out the full scoop if you want over at Watch With Kristin

Definitely the calm before the storm

leave a comment »

So it’s a pretty slow weekend….There’s a bunch of crummy movies out this week, but to ease my suffering I just like to sit back and realize that in a week I’ll have seen Spiderman 3 at least once….possibly twice.

I’m really excited for this summer movie season to get kicked off….It’s definitely gonna be a huge summer, and I’m glad that I’ll get to be a part of it.

I’ll update on any news that gets released over the weekend, but I don’t expect much to happen…..we’ll see.

The first Transformers review is out!

leave a comment »

I glanced over this spoilerish review from a preview screening of Transformers….I was already excited about this movie, but this makes it that much longer of a wait.

I won’t go over any of the specifics, but it sounds like it’s typical Michael Bay, whom I’ve always been a fan of (but like the reviewer, also didn’t really enjoy Pearl Harbor).  This one is inching up to the top of my “most anticipated of Summer 2007” list.

The one gripe I have, and which I thought might have not been true, is that the lips are still apparently on Prime when he has the face shield down…..Maybe, just maybe, they’ll listen to all the complaints about how bad of an idea it really is.  It’s just going to come off as weird if it’s anywhere close to what was in that “test shot” last week.

I’ll wait to officially say it was a bad idea until I see what they’ve done, but still….Robots don’t need to have lips.

Check out the review!

A look at Iron Man

leave a comment »

USA Today has a cool article up talking about how the role of Tony Stark in next summer’s Iron Man and how actor Robert Downey Jr., who’ll don the red and gold suit, relates to the role.

It’s a pretty good article, and there’s also a nice teaser shot of Tony Stark (Downey Jr.) working on a prototype armor suit.

I’m pretty excited for this one next summer, particularly because Iron Man has some of the best color combos of any of the superheroes….
