The Office – Season 6

leave a comment »

I’ve begun to get that end of summer hankering for new TV, and one of the shows I’m missing the most is The Office on NBC.

While the last few seasons were by no means the best, the story arcs they are branching off are starting to become more and more intriguing.

-Pam & Jim having a baby and eventually gettig married

-Michaels relationship, or lack thereof with Holly and other random women

-Anything having to do with Dwight’s and Andy’s shenanigans in the office

These are just a few of the intriguing plot points I’m following. Feelfree to comment with your own favorite moments on the show

Anyhoo, it,s time for me to watch The Closer on TNT w/ the wife and then check out Jon & Kate plus 8 to see eat trouble they are causing these days…

“The Office” spinoff: Yay or Nay?

with one comment

A whole bunch of NBC news coming our way today, via a mini-upfront type presentation by the network.

One of the highlights for me revolves around this proposed spinoff of The Office that NBC has planned. I value Office news highly, because it’s been a show I’ve followed since it premiered and before everyone joined the bandwagon and made it what it is today.

This spinoff has me both incredibly excited and somewhat worried….On the one hand, it could be another great show for NBC, with good writing and hilarious situations…on the other hand, as Watch With Kristin points out (along with many others), it could be too much of a good thing. I’ll reserve judgment until I see who they get as a new “Michael Scott” type character (if they go that route with it).

One thing I think NBC should consider is to NOT make it another Dunder Mifflin Branch….A great idea would be to make it someone who does business with Dunder Mifflin, and spin it off that way. Then the regular Office staff can stay in tact. There is no way they can stand to lose some of their co-workers to another show because it just wouldn’t be the same.

Any thoughts? Feel free to post…..All in all, it’s an exciting day for fans of TV….and NBC!

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.

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

Heroes 1.20- “Five Years Gone” Preview

leave a comment »

TV Addict is previewing next week’s Heroes, which will be a flashfoward 5 years into the future (where Hiro and Ando are right now).

I’m staying away from the previews, but if you feel the urge, head on over.  They’ll be posting the opening scene from the episode, and already have a clip that apparently shows future-Hiro confronting HRG.

This should be good!

Heroes Mini Recaplet

with one comment

So I just finished up the return episode of Heroes….

I know I’m going to have to rewatch, because they went through a bunch of information, and 7 weeks gone from my schedule has left my memory a little rusty.

Still…it’s good to have Heroes back…..Next week’s episode looks particularly stunning….Do you agree?

Monday TV Outlook

leave a comment »

So the big news tonight is the return of Heroes.  After what’s seemed to be an eternity (well, 7 weeks anyway) we finally start the final chapter of Season 1…..

Drive-“No Turning Back”- You know, I still don’t easily recognize all the names of the racers yet, so I’ll stick to the description posted at Meevee.  All I know is Tully has a sweet ride starting this week.

“Corinna is skeptical of an offer that may give her and Alex an advantage; Susan and Leigh weigh their options after Ivy’s actions; Wendy worries about her baby; Rob gets shocking news; and a driver is removed from the race.”

24-“12:00 a.m. – 1:00 a.m.”-At the end of last week, we were left watching Jack leave Doyle on the side of the highway as he went after Audrey….My gut is telling me that people over at CTU won’t be too happy about this….We’ll see.  I’ve once again successfully avoided the previews…

Heroes-“.07%”- Sylar confronts Peter, and possibly others, in his continued rampage on all the people with abilities.  Also, Nathan and Linderman will be discussing some decisions….Thompson is on the hunt for Claire…..and Hiro renews his vow to “save the world”….This is gonna be good!

This is the first time in weeks that both the Tivo and VCR will be fired up folks…..Get excited!

Jim Halpert IS Dwight Schrute…

leave a comment »

I’m holding out to watch the clip I’ve embedded below.

GMMR pointed this out, and I’d have to agree that this probably is the cold open for the upcoming NEW episode this week, entitled “Product Recall”.   Honestly, the freeze frame and the whole concept of Jim playing Dwight makes me giggle.

If it’s a clue as to the quality of this week’s episode, all signs point to a hilarious episode…which is good, considering how much The Office rocks!
