The Office – “Goodbye, Toby” Musings

with 3 comments

SPOILER ALERT…If you haven’t watched The Office, READ NO FURTHER!

SPOILERS AHEAD

SPOILERS AHEAD

SERIOUSLY….NO MORE WARNINGS. SPOILER ALERT!

I’ll fill this in at some point after Lost, but how could the writers even dare leave out a proposal from Jim?!?

I guess they had everyone gunning for it, so it is a curveball, but I can imagine many people, myself included, are absolutely livid that they didn’t have Jim propose to Pam.

Lots of unexpected twists made up for this omission, but the wait through the summer is going to be torture.

Musings:

-Tobey hitting on Pam comes off as creepy….EVERY TIME

-If Pam is going to school in New York, is she going to leave her job?

-Ryan’s gone! Ryan’s GONE!

-Holly thinking Kevin was “special” was hilarious….HILARIOUS

-Oscar’s line about the beard…..priceless

Many more to come after a second viewing later….For now…..Lost !!

More The Office Season Finale Rumblings

leave a comment »

This post over a Watch with Kristin teases tonights Office finale in an evil, although satisfying way, saying:

  • There are 4 or 5 “no-way” moments
  • Prior episodes have subtly established big twists and spinoff possibilities
  • It’s insane!

I’m a huge fan of twists and turns (as evidenced by my discussions about Lost twist endings with friends)…so, this is very good news.

Also excited to see where the spinoff talk leads, because it’s potentially another great show that I’ll be glad to watch from the beginning.

Let the speculation begin…you can guarantee I’ll be glued to my TV tonight during the 1-hour Office season 4 finale!

Survivor Micronesia Musings

leave a comment »

You know, I’ve been expecting all along that Natalie would have some screen time in an episode, considering she’s hung around this long.

I just didn’t quite expect her to be as cocky and arrogant as she came off in tonight’s episode. She literally owned the episode…I think about 75% of those talking heads were hers, and what was with the expanded lead-in to tribal council with her STILL talking?!

She needs to go….with Cirie…..

The thing I don’t understand is why Amanda and James were all mopey, just hoping that Jason did what he ended up doing….If they had spoken with Jason, told him that Natalie was going to stab him in the back, and then talked to Erik, who is on the outs since it was Girls vs. Guys, that would have given them the numbers to flip it right back at Parvati, Natalie and Alexis.

Seriously…That makes sense, doesn’t it?

I thought these players were supposed to be All-Stars….

NBC Shows Some Smarts…Says No to O.J.

leave a comment »

I’m glad that NBC and the people behind casting for the inevitable Celebrity Apprentice 2 had the smarts to NOT put O.J. Simpson on the show.

After all the problems he’s had with the law in the past few years, he doesn’t deserve to be featured on a national television program. It’d be like rewarding him for being the way he is, and I think there’s one thing that’s pretty obvious…he’s no role model.

Even so, like The Apprentice before it, I don’t think there’s any way that follow up seasons of the show will ever top the 1st season. Piers Morgan was an absolute perfect choice to make that show entertaining, and there’s just no topping that.

Survivor Returning to Africa?!

leave a comment »

I’ve always been a huge fan of Survivor: Africa from way back in the day….It had easily some of the best casting for any season that’s ever been produced, and despite a lot of people complaining it was not the best of seasons, I’ve always thought it shined as one of the best.

With that said, it’s a very exciting development to see that Africa is possibly being considered for the 17th season of Survivor, and also the first season to be shot entirely in HD.

The location is known as Gabon, and is in Western Africa….They had me at Africa….though, I am curious to see if it’s as desolate as Kenya was, or if it might be in a more wooded area.

Either way…I’m there. Bring on this season’s finale so we can see what the logo looks like. If it’s good enough, I might just have to get some new Survivor-themed gear.

Survivor goes High-Def

leave a comment »

I’m actually psyched to read this latest news…

I remember reading an article about a month ago wondering why Survivor on CBS hadn’t made the transition to HD.  Low and behold, here we are a month later, and it’s officially announced that the 17th edition of the show will be shot in HD.

Survivor has always been a beautiful show with a lot of stunning locales and awesome beauty shots….I think this might be just the catalyst for a lot of the shows fans to go out and upgrade to HD (if they haven’t already).

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.

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.

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!
