The Office Season Finale Rumblings

with 2 comments

Over at Watch With Kristin, they’ve posted a preview of what to possibly expect for this season’s Office finale.

While I might normally expect these types of posts to be filled with spoilery goodness, today it’s not so.  But it does make some interesting points that set up a potentially HUGE finale.

The main thing she points out is that we know Jim is going to propose.  Also, after the episode this week, Pam pretty much knows it too.  The thing is, there’s apparently something bigger out there…..and I can’t really imagine what it would be.

The fact that there’s also a mention of a green screen being used in at least one scene doesn’t really answer any questions, other than the fact that Jim and Pam might go on some exotic getaway, but that seems too simple.

What’s in store for The Office at the end of this season?  I don’t really know….but I’m hoping they floor us like they did with that Season 2 finale…still one of the best hours (well, 40 minutes) of television ever.

Any thoughts?

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).

Survivor Micronesia Musings

with one comment

Just a couple musings from tonight’s episode, because they really stood out to me.

I think it’s becoming more and more clear how much we actually don’t see on a weekly basis during each episode of Survivor.   Here’s a couple things that brought this to my attention tonight:

1) Natalie (I think that’s her name…) has yet to do a confessional to the camera (at least that has aired), yet she’s managed to stick around this long.  How does that happen?  Does anyone else notice she never says anything?!  Either she’s playing really smart and staying under the radar, or apparently the producers feel she has nothing important to say.

2) Apparently Alexis and Ozzy got to know each other a lot better than has ever been shown when they were on Exile Island….She basically took the place of Amanda, and was hanging all over him…..Yet, since they’ve gone to Exile, not once had she ever said anything about Ozzy…they just showed them walking to their boat that ONE time…..Alexis also got a LOT of screen time and spoke much more than she ever has…..

The style of this season is just a little peculiar….not that I’m not enjoying it.

“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!

What’s the deal?

with one comment

Honestly, I’ve yet to see what all the critics and what seems like just about every blogger see in Pushing Daisies.

I hear a lot of complaints on the new sitcoms like Big Bang Theory and Back to You…..I find myself more annoyed by constant narrating on Daisies….

I don’t know of many shows that have ever been so narration heavy, and honestly, as one of my co-workers said, it seems more like a mini-series type concept.  And it definitely is “quirky”, as most have said…..

I’m going to be keeping an eye on the overnight ratings, because I’m eager to see how Pushing Daisies holds up in its second week.  I predict a modest decrease in the ratings of about 12%….
