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…
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!
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.
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!
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!
