  54. <description><![CDATA[<p>By Kevin Crossman<br /><br /><em>The Office</em> creator and Executive Producer Greg Daniels announced that the NBC show’s upcoming ninth season will be it’s last. Daniels also announced that he is returning to the role of showrunner, taking over from Paul Lieberstein who is prepping a Dwight spinoff with Rainn Wilson. <a href="http://www.officetally.com/the-office-to-end-after-season-9">According to OfficeTally</a>, Daniels spoke about making an artistic ending to the show but also that “all questions will be answered” about the world of Dunder Mifflin and it’s characters.</p>
  55. <ul>
  56. <li>Who is behind the documentary, and why are they still filming?</li>
  57. <li>A “big year for Jim and Pam”</li>
  58. <li>Identity of the Scranton Strangler</li>
  59. </ul>
  60. <p>This news is sure to reinvigorate the desire for Steve Carell’s character Michael Scott to return to the show in some capacity. Daniels left that open but also indicated he didn’t want to force it. And it would be Carell’s call as well, <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/the-office-ending-season-9-364352">according to the Hollywood Reporter.</a></p>
  61. <blockquote>
  62. <p>“We’ll see,” Daniels said of the idea to bring the actor back to the series that helped launch his career. “We have ideas for the ending, and obviously if he would participate, we would have a lot of good times. The idea will fly without him if he can’t make it. He is pretty busy.”</p>
  63. </blockquote>
  64. <p>Much of last season’s cast will not be present as regulars or even at all for the upcoming season. Both Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak are expected to make occasional appearances, while James Spader’s character is definitely out. Andy Buckley is returning as David Wallace who will be “running things” according to Daniels. Importantly, deals were signed with key leads John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ed Helms.<br /><br />As for Wilson and his Schrute Farms-inspired spinoff The Farm, a key cast member was announced last week. Comely blonde <a href="http://www.deadline.com/2012/08/majandra-delfino-cast-as-rainn-wilsons-sister-on-the-office-spinoff/">Majandra Delfino has been cast</a> as Schrute’s younger sister Fannie, who previously left the farm but returns as a single mother. Though the key creatives for the spinoff are top-notch, it’s still unclear if sibling-inspired spinoff will be great (think Frasier) or awful (Joey).</p>]]></description>

It's been a great ride but unlike certain network executives, Matt and Kevin (mostly Matt) know when it's time to step away. So, dear listeners, please leave a comment about how TWSS has touched your lives and affected your dreams - you might just hear it on our final show.</p>

  85. <description><![CDATA[<p><strong>In preparation for Matt and Kevin's season-ending recording of the That's What She Said Podcast, we ask our dear listeners for their thoughts on Season 8. Did you love it? Did you hate it? What were your favorite moments, storylines, or characters?<br /></strong></p>
  86. <p><strong>Let us know...</strong></p>
  87. <p>The eighth season consisted of twenty-four episodes. <strong>James Spader </strong>reprises his role as Robert California, the new CEO of Dunder Mifflin/Sabre. Andy is promoted to Regional Manager and works hard to make a good impression on Robert, and asks Dwight to be his number two. Pam and Jim are expecting their second child, Phillip, at the start of the season, to coincide with Jenna Fischer's real life pregnancy. Angela is pregnant with her first son, also named Philip, with Sen. Robert Lipton (although it is implied that Dwight Schrute is actually the child's biological father). Darryl starts falling for new warehouse worker Val. Dwight is tasked with traveling to Tallahassee, Florida in order to assist Sabre Special Projects Manager Nellie Bertram (<strong>Catherine Tate</strong>) in launching a chain of retail stores, along with Jim, Ryan, Stanley, Erin, and new office temp Cathy Simms. Cathy is also revealed to have ulterior motives for the trip, as she intends to seduce Jim, but fails. Robert later kills the retail store project, blaming <strong>Todd Packer</strong> for the debacle. Erin decides to stay in Florida as an elderly woman's live-in helper. Andy goes to Florida and wins back Erin, but this allows Nellie to claim the manager position as her own. Robert tells Andy that he has been demoted back to a salesman, but refuses to accept the news, which causes him to be fired. Andy becomes motivated to begin a Dunder Mifflin comeback and joins with former CFO, <strong>David Wallace</strong>, to buy Dunder Mifflin back from Sabre putting Sabre completely out of business and giving Andy the manager position once again.</p>]]></description>

  100. <p>Urgh. The return of Nellie, a character that I HATED when she was introduced during last season's "Search Committee." Thankfully the show went with Robert California as the office manager, but like a bad dream they just can't let go of Catherine Tate and the extremely annoying character of Nellie.  Perhaps we'll see a "new" Nellie who might not be so bad. We'll see...</p>

  116. <p>This is TWSS Kevin. Matt seems to be dodging my emails so I really have no idea if we'll return from hiatus. Blame the gradual decline in quality of The Office and good bit of Wisconsin politics. That said, I REALLY liked this episode, especially some of the continuing storylines with Val and Darryl, Erin, Dwight, and Angela. It made me forget, perhaps for the first time, that there used to be somebody called Michael Scott on the show.</p>
  117. <p>In any case, we'd love to hear your feedback.</p>]]></description>

  225. <description><![CDATA[<p>Episode # 129 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin wondering if it's "too soon" to joke about Lincoln's death. TWSS listeners: You've got your sheep, and you've got your black sheep... and I'm not even a sheep.  I'm on the freakin' moon! When Andy realizes that business is like a war, he decides to give the office staff a battlefield education. Surely the lessons learned from the Battle of Gettysburg can be applied to the daily operations of a small paper company? Meanwhile, Kevin loves cookies, Gabe-raham Lincoln wows the crowds, and Dwight finds his ancestors once hid fabulous dandies. You know, in the African-American community, this episode is... no? Well, I thought it was worth a try. Incidental music provided by Music Alley from Mevio.

  307. <p>Episode # 126 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin experimenting with "podcasting of the unsettling." It's that time of year again when young hearts turn to thoughts of... fear.  Or, at least the "unsettling." When Robert California expresses his high expectations for the annual Halloween party, Andy feels the pressure to deliver... and poor Wendy (er... Erin) isn't cutting the mustard.  What's a manager to do? Meanwhile, Jim and Pam argue about ghosts, Dwight meets his intellectual equal, Toby gets fired, and Robert California gives his own demented version of the "one more thing" speech.  At least we can take solace in the fact that mummies aren't real.  Right?

  392. <p>Episode # 123 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin arguing over which one of them is going to get the "TWSS" tramp-stamp. Me am Matt. Me no happy with cold open. Me cry now. When Robert California challenges Andy to double the office's sales figures, Andy will have to use every beet selling trick he can manage to steal if he hopes to impress the new boss.  If that doesn't pan out, I guess he'll just incentivize them by offering up his stink for the ink. Obviously, you're going to go the ass tattoo route.  And obviously, I'm gonna like it. Or not. Incidental music provided by Music Alley from Mevio.

The question is, on which side of the list will they fall? When California divides the office into winners and losers, it's up to Andy to set the record straight.

  433. <description><![CDATA[<p><em>Written and directed by B.J. Novak</em></p>
  434. <p>Robert (James Spader) stops by for the first time as CEO, accidentally leaving behind a mysterious list, divided down the middle with each employee's name on one of two sides. Everyone in the office frantically tries to figure out what it means. Meanwhile, the new manager faces a crisis.</p>
  435. <p>-----</p>
  436. <p>What's this?</p>
  437. <p>Yes, TWSS fans, the moment you've all been waiting for (or at least some of you have been waiting for). After six months of fighting for the rights of teachers and working people in Wisconsin, influencing directly or indirectly the entire nation, Matt is back in the TWSS saddle at least for now. Meanwhile, Kevin has been relaxing on the beach in liberal California wondering what all the fuss is about.</p>
  438. <p>TWSS's format will be changing. A little. Probably shorter shows (but not "short shows"). Definitely fewer clips. But all that great That's What She Said banter that's made us famous.</p>
  439. <p>So, please leave a comment about this week's season premiere. If you have thoughts about Steve Carell leaving the show (and getting screwed out of winning a much-deserved Emmy), or the events of last season it's okay to leave those comments here as well.</p>

  452. <description><![CDATA[<p>I should have done this sooner, but I'm hoping a LATE explanation is still better than NO explanation.</p>
  453. <p> </p>
  454. <p>If you've been following the news about what's going on in Wisconsin, you might have seen that we're all kinds of up in arms over a proposed "budget repair bill" which (among other things) will strip the collective bargaining rights from thousands upon thousands of public sector employees.  As a public high school teacher, I (needless to say) find myself quite vexed by this prospect, and have spent nearly every free moment these past few weeks engaged in activities and protests aiming to stop this ridiculous partisan bill. Just in case that wasn't clear a moment ago, I'll repeat it-- we're fighting to keep our collective bargaining rights.  Every state employee has already agreed to pay their "fair share" in raised costs, but this plan isn't about balancing the budget;  It's about busting unions, and that dog just won't hunt.</p>
  455. <p> </p>
  456. <p>I'm not asking for your support here, nor do I want to hear any uninformed rants about subjects of which most non-public sector employees have no understanding.  I merely offer it as an explanation for why the podcast has trickled to a halt.  We have one more episode in the hopper that has already been recorded (The Search), but I cannot guarantee anything beyond that.</p>
  457. <p> </p>
  458. <p>For those who have supported the podcast and enjoyed our excessive rambling discussions of a twenty-minute TV show, please know it has been greatly appreciated.  We will return if and when we can.</p>

  508. <p>Jim gets an emergency phone call from Helene (Linda Purl), forcing him to leave Michael at a gas station bathroom. This leads Holly, Erin, and Dwight on a search for the whereabouts of Michael. A captioning contest starts in the office over Pam's artwork, which seems to offend Gabe. </p>

  510. <p>Nothing much to say about this one, other than it reminds me of the classic episode of Seinfeld where Kramer is "lost" in NYC and Jerry has to go and find him (cue Daniel Day Lewis in LAST OF THE MOHICANS quote...).  Glad to see Gabe mentioned prominently in the episode summary, as he seems to have had little to do for the last few episodes.  I'm also kind of rubbing my eyes in disbelief as Andy isn't mentioned ONCE! Can it be? No Andy in the A or B plots? Unthinkable :)</p>

  544. <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>THE SEMINAR | 1.27.11</strong></span></p>
  545. <p> </p>
  546. <p><span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 13px; border-collapse: collapse; line-height: 19px;">Andy holds a small business seminar in the office with some special guests after he finds out that his sales are at his lowest. Michael and Holly use the seminar as an improv challenge. Erin and Gabe have a game of Scrabble where she engages others to join. Ricky Gervais is set to guest star as David Brent. </span></p>

  549. <p><span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 13px; border-collapse: collapse; line-height: 19px;">Well, here it is-- the moment I never thought we'd see, and never WANTED to see.  If we pretend that David Brent exists in the same universe as Michael Scott, then we must accept that both of these offices experienced the EXACT same day, and said the exact same dialogue, and everything else (the pilots of both shows being identical). This seems to me to be, as George Costanza so eloquently put it, a massive example of "worlds colliding" that will shake the universe of THE OFFICE to the core. I absolutely HATE "wink wink" kind of humor and cameo appearances, so I'm sure this will be something that I have a lot to talk about in the podcast.</span></p>
  550. <p><span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: small;"><span style="border-collapse: collapse; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">OK, yeah, I know-- lighten up, Matt.  It's a comedy show! If it's funny, who cares? Etc. </span></span></p>
  551. <p><span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: small;"><span style="border-collapse: collapse; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">Call me insane, but I *DO* care.  I feel like this show I've loved and chronicled for the last four years is slowly becoming something I no longer appreciate or recognize.  I HOPE I'm wrong about this.  I HOPE that the guest spot is funny in and off itself, and they stay away from the "Dwight, ey? I know a bloke named Gareth who you'd get along with..." kind of stuff. I guess we'll just have to see.</span></span></p>

  571. <p>----</p>
  572. <p>One can't help but wonder how soon they're going to end this "will she/won't she" thing with Holly and A.J.  Kevin and I often expect plotlines to play out forever, and yet they're resolved within one or two episodes.  Other times, something we think is a quick joke ends up running through an entire season.  How will this play out?  We now know that Steve Carell plans to exit the show at least four episodes before the actual finale, so will he get his "happy ending" with Holly? Using my "new math" skills, it seems we still have ten more Michael-filled eps before his departure.  Here's hoping he goes out with a bang (and this is the episode that starts it all off).</p>

  586. <description><![CDATA[<p>Episode # 107 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin thinking of picking up the cello. If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit. When Michael returns from the dentist with a new-found fear of China, he becomes an office folk hero by putting Oscar "Mr. Actually" Martinez in his intellectual place.  But round two looms, and things don't look good for our hero keeping the championship belt. Meanwhile, Pam and Dwight battle over the building, Creed parlays, Nate de-plies, and Andy attempts to woo back Darryl with the perfect text.  One thing's for sure: there's plenty of crazy pigeon action up in THIS podcast!

  782. <description><![CDATA[<p>Episode # 102 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin loving Big Brother. TWSS listeners, I find you absolutely ribbitting! When Michael, Jim, and Dwight are bested by male model slash pam's ex-lover slash salesman Danny Cordray, they set up an undercover "stinger" operation to learn the secrets to his hunky success-- if Meredith can keep her pants on, that is.  Meanwhile, Andy's feeling blue when pal Broccoli Rob finds an amazingly small amount of professional success. His answer? Jam with Darryl and Kevin to create a kick-ass song people can ice skate to. Or... maybe a truck commercial? Either way. Incidental music provided by Music Alley from Mevio.

When Michael faces off against counselor Toby in a battle of wills, he's determined to keep his lips zipped. Can Toby break through his defenses with subtle subterfuge and a couple of classic board games? Only ALF may know for sure.  Meanwhile, Dwight gets snubbed at the Steamtown Mall, Pam bluffs her way through the scam of all scams, and Ryan appears to have dipped into Dianetics. And Erin... oh, don't get me started on Erin. So, TWSS listeners, did you think I'd dislike this episode? How about now? How about now? How about now? How about now?

  961. <p>____________</p>
  962. <p> </p>
  963. <p>Seeing as both this episode and the premiere were directed by the same individual, I can't help but wonder if this is actually going to be a "part two" sort of continuation from last week.  Michael and Toby in counseling has the potential to be a good time, but have the writers already wrung the Flenderson hate dry? Hopefully they'll give us a little something more than just the "Toby is the worst!" sort of material.  Pam's move to salesperson still seems completely underdeveloped, so her trying to change he job title seems a little odd.  I know several people seem to want to see her take over as manager after Michael leaves, but she hasn't been anywhere close to earning that position.  If she experiences some sort of career rebirth this season, maybe I can buy into the idea a bit more.</p>
  964. <p>As always, leave your comments below.  Be sure to join Kevin and me in the TWSS Chatroom during and after the show (just hit that green "Chat Now" button on the right sidebar).</p>

  980. <description><![CDATA[<p>Episode # 98 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds Matt, Ian, and Kevin staking out their respective pee corners. Keeping it in the family? NO no. No. No no no. No no no no. Michael cheeses off his subordinates when he covertly hires his estranged nephew to be the new office assistant. The new, HORRIBLE, terrible, annoying office assistant. Maybe it's in the genes? Meanwhile, Gabe dates Erin, Creed hates Betty White, Ryan whores Wuphf, and Pam attempts to win back her husband's love by pranking Dwight. I'd normally say something incredibly pithy and clever here, but... if you'll excuse me, I believe my strawberries are ripe. Incidental music provided by Music Alley from Mevio.

We don't need no Dunkin Donuts gift card, let the mother effer burn.  Michael's enjoying his new relationship to the fullest (it's even distracting him from work!), but when the office convinces him Donna's cheating, it's up to Dwight Schrute, P.I., to get to the bottom of things. What are a couple of thigh pulls between friends? Meanwhile, it gets all real up in here when Daryll decides to use Andy's printer concern as prank fodder. Will Andy's video hold evil tidings for Sabre? Only time will tell (wink, wink). And before we get started talking about THE COVER-UP, I'm just gonna warn you, and I say this to all our listeners... but you might not like what we find.

Meanwhile, Sabre's looking for a few good minorities, and Dwight is bent on getting his own puppet into power.

  1105. <description><![CDATA[<p><em>by Kevin Crossman</em></p>
  1106. <p>There's been a lot of speculation about the Scranton Strangler, a plotline that seemed like a throwaway joke back on "The Delivery" but has been mentioned repeatedly in subsequent episodes. One might think that since they have mentioned the strangler frequently we will eventually learn the identity. Of course, the very topic of the strangler is odd; <em>The Office</em> is known for uncomfortable and awkward humor but serial killing is quite a bit of a darker shade of gray don't you think?</p>
  1107. <p>On TWSS #94, Matt and I speculated on who we think the strangler might be, if the killer is a character we know from the show. Matt chose <strong>Gabe</strong>, which makes a lot of sense. The new Sabre character appeared in Scranton at about the same time as the killer and his "odd" personality would lend itself to serial killer theories. On the other hand, I chose <strong>Toby</strong>. A beloved (by some) and longtime character, Toby would be a unexpected choice. But, something tells me that the whimpy Toby has a dark and violent side.</p>
  1108. <p>So, what do you think? Who do you think the Scranton Strangler is? What do you think of even the very topic of a serial killer on a comedy show?</p>]]></description>

When Michael takes Erin (aka "the rube") out for a celebratory Secretary's Day lunch, he inadvertantly lets Andygela out of the bag (much to Erin's disgust).  Meanwhile, the rest of the office spends the day pointing out Kevin's resemblance to a certain blue pastry-eating muppet, and it's up to Sabre's Gabe to lay down the law. Or not. Maybe they don't respect him enough? Maybe they have TOO much respect for him? Or maybe they still think he's the IT guy? Either way, SOMEONE's going home without pay. Or not. Incidental music provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

  1199. <description><![CDATA[<p>By Kevin Crossman</p>
  1200. <p>This is something I've been mentioning on the podcast for a while now and Steve Carell has recently confirmed the details in a BBC interview.</p>
  1201. <p>Carell is signed through next year's seventh season of The Office, where other cast members such as John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer are signed through an eighth season. So, could that mean that Carell could leave the show before the series ends? I've said as much for months now... and now Carell confirms it. <a href="http://www.officetally.com/steve-carell-to-leave-the-office-after-season-7">OfficeTally has the clip</a> of the interview.</p>
  1202. <p style="padding-left: 30px;">Interviewer: How long does your contract run? Carell: Contract through next season. Interviewer: And will you stay after that? Carell: I don’t think so. I think that will probably be my last year.</p>
  1203. <p>What do you think? Can The Office survive without Carell? If he leaves, who do you think should take up residence in Michael's office? Jim? Dwight? Or how about my pick: Todd Packer?</p>
  1204. <p>----------</p>
  1205. <p>Matt says --</p>
  1206. <p>End it!</p>
  1207. <p>Seriously, the show had a good run, but without Michael, what's the point?  I suppose they could always just keep the rest of the cast, or bring in some other big name for the boss, or maybe they could take my suggestion and hire Steve Carell look-alike <a href="http://image.com.com/tv/images/processed/default/99/7a/293977.jpg">Peter Jacobson</a> from HOUSE :) But it just won't be the same.  End the show with a little dignity, guys.</p>

  1255. <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
  1256. <p style="text-align: justify;">So after a lengthy hiatus, we are presented with what COULD be a "classic episode"-- it's written by Mindy Kaling, and directed by Steve Carell himself.  More Andy and Erin stuff, which is OK, but certainly lacks the stakes of the classic Jim/Pam romance.  Do I really CARE if they break up over the old Angela relationship? Not really.  Still, we'll see where it goes. The Oscar/Kevin thing sounds rather ridiculous, but the potential for laughs seems rather high.</p>

Civil War erupts when Sabre's new commission-oriented sales system motivates the entire sales staff (Yes, even Stanley) to new heights of dickishness. Will the accountants and customer service take up arms against their uppity bretheren? Shall Michael Scott follow the lead of our first president, Abrahama Lincoln, to help bridge the divide? Well, only if Lincoln was down with forced paperwork, a scavenger hunt, and a little choking between colleagues-- I'm still enjoying this! To "close" things off, an unusual setting is the locale for two heartfelt scenes that will leave your eyes watering. I'm just not sure if it's the emotion or the foul stench causing my oh so manly tears.  Incidental music provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

  1289. <description><![CDATA[<p><em>by Kevin Crossman</em></p>
  1290. <p>Here our the winners and some of the best entries in our That's What She Said Baby Name contest, in honor of Jim and Pam's daughter, Cecilia.</p>
  1291. <p>As Matt points out in the forthcoming TWSS episode #91, these are my picks for the winners so all gripes go to me, not Matt.</p>
  1292. <p><strong>Third Place</strong> - Winner of DVD copy of "You" starring Melora Hardin.<br />"I think Jim and Pam should name their baby Travis because that is the artist of the song they listen to in season 2 when they swayed."<br />Jamie Kushner</p>
  1293. <p>Several listeners/readers sent in "Travis" but Jamie was first and so she gets the prize. As much as I love the "jokey" entries this sentimental suggestion would have been a great nod to a classic JAM scene from Season 2.</p>
  1294. <p><br /><br /><strong>Second Place</strong> - Winner of book "The Office and Philosophy"<br />"Herbert Halpert.  Book it."<br />Brandon Petersen</p>
  1295. <p>Very, very "jokey" but I love this entry. Can you imagine the lines that could be delivered by Michael or Kevin if the JAM baby was named Herbert Halpert?</p>
  1296. <p><br /><br /><strong>First Place</strong> - Winner of a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate<br />"My Idea for a name for baby Halpert - Mistake. The reasons are fairly odvious don't you think?"<br />Shelly</p>
  1297. <p>Give credit to Shelly for understanding the mindset of the judges with this entry. Though I have to admit the baby stuff has not been overplayed this season I still stick by my guns in saying that it was too soon to have a baby. In life, you sometimes cannot plan for unforseen pregnancies. On TV, there is no such thing as an "unplanned pregnancy."  Here's hoping, in a way, that Cecilia becomes as much as an afterthought as Emma was on "Friends."<br /><br /><br /><strong>Others entries</strong> that were good:<br />"Jim and Pam pick an obscure biblical name Obadiah and add the middle name Juan. They could call him Obi-Juan!"<br />Zac Cross<br /><br />"Perfect PB&J Baby name: "Smuckers"  [Cue the high-hat]"<br />Vic Shuttee<br /><br />"This is Aaron from Laguna Hills, CA and my suggestion for the name is: Damien. I know it's simple, but I like the idea of it being a nice name that Jim and Pam could choose, and it would of course prompt Michael (along with others) to make some jokes about Jim and Pam's child being the son of satan. So those are my thoughts, simple but possible."<br />Aaron Neuwirth</p>
  1298. <p>We received a lot of "Michael" related entries. You didn't really think we were going to pick those, right?</p>]]></description>

  1338. <p>When the sales staff lets Sabre's new "sales is king" policy get to their heads, Michael hides their new, prized leads.</p>
  1339. <p> </p>
  1340. <p>------</p>
  1341. <p> </p>
  1342. <p>Sabre's "no caps on commission" policy played a big role in the main plot of MANAGER & SALESMAN, so I suppose this episode's antics are the result of said policy.  The mere mention of "leads" instantly brings to mind David Mamet's GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS (Always Be Closing, Mother f*cker), so I'm curious to see if writer Brent Forrester will use the famous play/film as inspiration or forge his own path.  Will Jim be the "Shelley Levene" of the bunch? Is Dwight DM/Sabre's "Ricky Roma"? Who's getting fired, and who gets the steak knives? Place your bets now.</p>

  1381. <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">So. Hm.  Here we are.  For those of you that don't follow my Twitter feed, let me repeat some of what I said this past week-- I'm tired.  Burned out, really, and TWSS is definitely taking a back seat to a lot of the other issues in my life right now.  Out podcast for THE DELIVERY is late, and I'm not sure when we're going to get back into it.  And NO, I'm not quitting because I hated the episode or anything (I liked it a good deal, actually) like that.  And NO, I'm not even quitting.  I'm not sure what I'm doing, but I plan to return as soon as I can manage.</span></p>
  1382. <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;">OK, on to tonight's episode.  The real city of Scranton has a long tradition of having a huge St. Patrick's Day parade, and the creators of THE OFFICE have long wanted to do something with that plotline.  In the past, March has always been a hiatus month so nothing could be done.  It will be interesting to see how much (if any) this real-life event will play into tonight's show.</span></p>
  1383. <p style="text-align: justify;"><font face="sans-serif" size="3"><span style="font-size: 13px; line-height: 19px;"><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2"><span style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal;">I still plan on being in the TWSS Chatroom tonight if you want to stop by.  Hit the green "Chat Now" button on the side of the screen.</span></font></span></font></p>

  1399. <p style="text-align: justify;">Pam's contractions begin but she and Jim are determined to wait it out as long as possible so they can have more time at the hospital. Meanwhile the rest of the office tries to distract Pam from the pain with food and entertainment. Michael anxiously waits for Pam and Jim's baby, Cecilia, to be born. Back at the office, Erin makes Andy jealous when she has lunch with Kevin.</p>
  1400. <p style="text-align: justify;">-------------</p>
  1401. <p style="text-align: justify;">Well, here it is-- the second huge JAM episode of season six.  The Office already milked much of this baby/delivery humor last season in "Baby Shower," so it'll be interesting to see what they can do with a very similar plotline tonight. </p>
  1402. <p style="text-align: justify;">Unfortunately, I have parent/teacher conferences tonight and will not be able to watch the episode live (or participate in the chatroom discussion).  Feel free to stop by, though, and join other TWSS listeners in the chatroom if you'd like.  Also, make sure you leave your comments below-- I have a feeling this could be a really love it or hate it sort of situation.</p>

(Har) Later, when Sabre CEO Jo Bennett arrives in Scranton to inspect the troops, she forces Jim and Michael to decide which one of them is the REAL manager. Sometimes, the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Other times, there IS no grass... just a farty dirt patch.

  1452. <description><![CDATA[<p><em>by Kevin Crossman</em></p>
  1453. <p>There's been a lot of speculation about Dunder Mifflin's new parent corporation, Sabre. Now, fans of The Office can dig through a new faux-website for the copier conglomerate. Just head over to <a href="http://www.Sabre-Corp.com">www.Sabre-Corp.com</a> and all your questions will be answered.</p>
  1454. <p>Want to learn more about Sabre's products? There's a complete catalog of printers available, running from the low-end Sabre iPalette all the way up to the Sabre 9900 All-in-One Color Ink-jet. Fax machines and scanners are also available.</p>
  1455. <p>CEO Jo Bennett is featured, as any corporate website should. You can even watch the inspirational Sabre video with Christian Slater.</p>
  1456. <p>Of most interest to fan of The Office is the News section where the announcement of Dunder Mifflin's acquisition is available. In the press release it notes that Dunder Mifflin has the following branches: Albany, Utica, Scranton, Akron, and Nashua. Thus, leaving open the possibility of a return of beloved characters Holly Flax or (less likely) Karen Filipelli.</p>]]></description>

  1462. <title>The Office -- Episode #6.15 Manager and Salesman</title>

  1467. <description><![CDATA[<p style="text-align: justify;">From Wikipedia:</p>
  1468. <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Manager and Salesman | 2.11.10</strong></p>
  1469. <p style="text-align: justify;">The office is eager to welcome Sabre CEO Jo Bennett to Scranton, and are dazzled by her Southern ways. When Jo finds out there are two branch managers, she says either Michael or Jim must go back to being a salesman. Meanwhile, Andy's Valentine's Day plan backfires.</p>
  1470. <p style="text-align: justify;">-----------</p>
  1471. <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
  1472. <p style="text-align: justify;">OK, so here we go with a potential interesting plot twist-- could we end up with Michael being a salesman working onder Jim's leadership?  It seems like a natural direction to explore at this point, since we've pretty much tapped out the "Jim as Michael's long suffering underling" angle.  I can see this taking us through the end of the season, with Michael perhaps taking the reigns back in the season finale.  As for Kathy Bates-- "Meh" about sums it up.  Didn't like her small part last week, and expect to find her "southern belle" act tonight just as grating.  But again, perhaps they'll surprise me?  Hopefully the Michael/Jim stuff will take up the bulk of the episode.</p>
  1473. <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
  1474. <p style="text-align: justify;">For those of you wondering what's going on with the TWSS episode for last week's SABRE, please be patient-- it will be out sometime soon.  Since we have a month long gap until our next episode of THE OFFICE, I figured we could space the TWSS eps out a little bit.  The show for Sabre will be up sometime next week, and the show for this week's ep should be out a week or so later.</p>
  1475. <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
  1476. <p style="text-align: justify;">As always, join me in the TWSS Chatroom tonight during and after the episode.  I don't think Kevin is going to be able to make it into the West Coast chat tonight, but the room is always open for anyone who'd like to talk about the episode in real time with other TWSS listeners.</p>

  1494. <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
  1495. <p style="text-align: justify;">Sabre comes in to take over Dunder Mifflin and Michael has difficulties accepting their new policies. Erin is waiting for Andy to ask her out while they work on a welcoming song for the company's new owners. Meanwhile, Jim and Pam interview for a local daycare center they hope to get into. <a title="Kathy Bates" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathy_Bates">Kathy Bates</a> guest stars.</p>
  1496. <p style="text-align: justify;">-----------</p>
  1497. <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
  1498. <p style="text-align: justify;">In a long-standing Hollywood tradition, yet another actor will step BEHIND the camera to direct an episode of The Office-- This time, John Krasinski, perhaps best known as the husband of Emily Blunt (ha ha), takes the reigns. We've already talked about our feelings for the whole Kathy Bates move, so we'll just see how it plays out.  Hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised by her performance. </p>

These were all things fans were happy about. It was encouraging. But wanting romantic tension to be relieved is never as satisfying as the relief.<br/><br/>All of Jim and Pam's witty asides and eyerolls in response to their officemates' antics have stopped being expressions of untapped potential and started to look like passive-aggressive attempts to undermine their peers—who are the only people who will socialize with them.<br/><br/>Now Jim has developed into the most depressing archetype: a mediocre man who has already realized his full potential.<br/><br/>Gone is Jim's charming lack of enthusiasm for his job. Now he's proving exactly where a lack of drive is likely to lead you—to the mediocrity of middle management, where one is gripped by the fear of losing whatever corner of inanity you've carved for yourself in the workplace.<br/></div><br/>What do you think about this provocative premise?

Directed by B. J. Novak.<br/><br/>Michael (Steve Carell) is forced to face the music after he realizes he can't keep a promise he made to a group of kids 10 years ago. Meanwhile, Jim (John Krasinski) starts an employee of the month program to increase employee morale.<br/></div><br/>----------<br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">Definitely curious to see what exactly this "promise" entails, although it sounds like this might be pretty heavy on the "awkward" humor that many people love (and I tend to not be too thrilled with).  Shall we assume Michael promised to pay these kids' way through college, or something equally ridiculous?  Michael always has loved making people happy and promising things.  It's that damn FOLLOW THROUGH that always seems to kick him in the butt...<br/><br/>Lee and Gene wrote this season's (arguably) best episode THE LOVER, and B. J. Novak is hot off his directorial work on SUBTLE SEXUALITY, so I hold out high hopes for tonight's installment.<br/><br/>As always, leave your thoughts in the comments section below and join

When Michael is whisked away to the Dunder Mifflin (sorry, BLUNDER Mifflin) shareholder meeting in a limo, he finally feels he's getting the recognition he deserves. Too bad the natives are extremely restless. Can this plucky manager from Scranton save the ailing company with the help of his Mexican sidekick? Three guesses, and your first two don't count. Back on the ranch, will Jim finally nut up or shut up when Ryan calls him out? He'll need to do more than exclaim to take this ne'er-do-well down for the count. Oh, and finally, God bless NBC for their green week episodes, and God bless YOU Re-cyclops, and your cold robot heart. Incidental music provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

  1647. on stage at the Dunder Mifflin shareholder meeting in New York, and he
  1648. brings Andy, Dwight and Oscar along for the ride. Meanwhile, Jim has a
  1649. hard time getting Ryan to do work. <br/><br/>------------<br/><br/>With the big bankruptcy bomb dropped last week, I'm curious as to what David Wallace thinks Michael can do for the failing Dunder Mifflin.  We enjoyed the Andy and Oscar action last season on BUSINESS TRIP, so hopefully we'll see some nice bonding moments this time as well.  As we mentioned in the last podcast, Ryan really put the screws to Jim in season four, so it would be interesting to see if Jim turns that around on him here.  He never really DID get his revenge, but Ryan has become such a different character since then that I'm not sure if it would still be a relevant thing to do.  I guess we shall see tonight.<br/><br/>I'm probably NOT going to be able to make it into the chatroom tonight, but don't let that stop you from talking to all the other TWSS listeners.  Kevin should be around during and after the Pacific time showing, though, if you Eastern/Central folks want to wait around.  As always, please leave your episode comments below.<br/></div><br/><br/>]]></description>

The Pam and Andy stuff has a great deal of potential.<br/></div><br/>As always, leave your thoughts in the comments section below and join

Pam (and Jim) are disgusted, Michael acts like Pam's father, etc., etc.  I hope writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky can wring something new out of a rather tired premise.  The Dwight plotline sounds interesting, and hopefully it connects back into the season long arc of "Dwight getting revenge on Jim" that they've ignored for the past few episodes.<br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">As always, leave your thoughts in the comments section below and join

With Pam and Jim gone to Puerto Rico on their honeymoon, the coalition of reason finds itself a few bricks short of a full load.

Oh, and aparently the ending is based on some YouTube clip I've never heard of.

We all have (or HAD) a big emotional investment in these characters, and this DOES seem like it should be a big deal, but part of me feels like I am just really over this whole thing.  I remember saying that at the end of season three, though, and "The Job" managed to win me back, so maybe tonight's hour long ep will make my grinchy heart grow ten sizes.<br/><br/>What do you guys think?

  1847. <br/><br/>Kevin and I speculated on this episode in the last podcast, and I hope the writers really explore this "Dwight's revenge" angle to a satisfactory conclusion-- after all these years of Jim's shenanigans, it'd be nice to see the tables be turned and see how Halpert deals with jerky employees who don't want to do their jobs. Sweet, sweet karma, don't fail me now!

  1930. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/>The 61st Annual Emmy Awards were held in Los Angeles last night and The Office came home a winner!  Well, in one category at least. Congrats to <span style="font-weight: bold;">Jeffrey Blitz </span>who won the Emmy for Comedy Directing for the post-Super Bowl episode, "Stress Relief."  However, once again, the Office did not win in any of the major categories.<br/><br/>The Office received ten nominations total this year, including Best Comedy Series, Best Actor (Steve Carell), Best Supporting Actor (Rainn Wilson), and other categories including Editing and Casting. 30 Rock received four of the five Comedy Writing nominations, and won the Best Comedy Series and Best Comedy Actor (Alec Baldwin) Emmys. Rainn Wilson lost to Jon Cryer of Two and a Half Men.<br/><br/>
  1931. Blitz's award is ironic, since "Stress Relief" is not universally loved
  1932. by all Office fans. Our own Matt Sommer in particular was not a fan of
  1933. the episode that featured a forced story-within-a-story featuring name
  1934. guest stars Jack Black, Jessica Alba, and Cloris Leachman. I'll just
  1935. say for my part that the extended cold open featuring a Dwight-induced
  1936. fire was one of the best moments in the series' history and perhaps the
  1937. funniest four minutes on television this year. I also liked the
  1938. emotional JAM storyline featuring Pam's father.<br/><br/>Blitz is pictured receiving congratulations from Office nominees Steve Carell and Rainn Wilson.<br/>]]></description>

  1994. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/>Melora Hardin's role on <span style="font-style: italic;">The Office</span> diminished last season as her character's downward spiral took her from serious, hard-nosed VP to sex-crazed mid-life crisis to domestic goddess and candle entrepreneur to mother. It's a sad story not just for the character but those of us who loved Season 2 Jan Levenson. I considered S2 Jan to be one of my favorite <span style="font-style: italic;">Office</span> characters ever, so I was interested to finally catch up with Melora Hardin's latest project, her directorial debut with <span style="font-style: italic;">You</span>. <br/><br/>The film stars Hardin as Miranda, a mother who suddenly dies leaving her young daughter in the care of her husband. Hardin's real-life husband Gildart Jackson wrote the script and stars as the Miranda's husband Rawdon. The film explores the nature of love though a series of scenes and flashbacks and involves the family and friends of Miranda and Rawdon, including Miranda's parents (played by real life parents Jerry Hardin and Diane Hardin). The couple's daughter Quincy is played by several actresses over a twenty year span in the film, including Allison Mack as the grown-up version.  <br/><br/>The film's official website (<a href="http://www.youthefilm.com">www.youthefilm.com</a>) and the press materials I received with my screener instructed me to "watch it with my family and friends" so my wife and I sat down with our seven year old to watch the film. The press materials indicated that the film is connecting with audiences and causes them to "be inspired by it to connect with the ones they love."<br/><br/>Shortly after starting the movie, we had to send our seven year-old away due to some adult language and scenes of sexuality (nothing too explicit... but too much for our child). The film is not rated but would likely rate as a light "R" - the first blow against the "family and friends" aesthetic.  The film is clearly coming from an emotional place, which means this falls into a romantic rather than comedic genre (no boob job jokes to be found here). I've liked the occasional "chick flick" so that in itself was not a problem.<br/><br/>So, did the film "inspire" my wife and I? I think these two Facebook posts from my wife say it all.<br/><br/><div style="margin-left: 40px;">Julie Crossman: Kevin's making me watch the worst movie in the world! It's laugh out loud horrible.<br/><br/>Julie Crossman: It's called "You," and it's a movie made by Melora Hardin (of the Office), her husband and her father. It's independent. It's supposed to be a drama, but we are laughing ourselves silly.<br/></div><br/>I wish I could say my wife got it all wrong, but when the female part of the family ridicules the emotional story about a widower and his daughter, well, you might guess where I stood. This movie is so completely ridiculous and poorly acted it might well be the funniest film project from an <span style="font-style: italic;">Office</span> alumni all year.<br/><br/>A key part of the "unintentionally funny" aspect of the film is that Hardin's character Miranda keeps appearing to her husband throughout major events in his life. These scenes are far from "spirited" and do not add to the drama; in fact, they take the viewer out of the drama and cause them to think about how unbelievable the entire premise of the film is.<br/><br/>Jackson does a fair job as the central character, often making good acting choices only to be undercut by his own poorly written dialogue and situations. The less said by the three uniformly bad actresses playing daughter Quincy the better.  The film wants to explore relationships over time and at the film's conclusion there is a revelation of sorts - except that the revelation itself actually takes place early in the chronology of the characters, which itself is example of how poorly constructed the film actual is. The "lesson" the character learns is something that they apparently forgot for the next twenty years. It's a mess, plain and simple.<br/><br/>I does not bring me joy to tell you that <span style="font-style: italic;">You</span> is a colossal failure in every possible way, but I'd be doing a disservice by pulling my punches. I had no reason not to like <span style="font-style: italic;">You</span> but it just didn't do it for me. As they say, your mileage may vary, but I can't recommend this to anyone but people who want to see every <span style="font-style: italic;">Office</span> related project. Or for those who love films that are "so bad they are good." In that case, this <span style="font-style: italic;">is </span>the film for <span style="font-style: italic;">you</span>.<br/>]]></description>

Novak is there... but does he say anything? Hardly. It's almost like an episode of The Office where Novak is there in the scene but we're all paying attention to the name actors or leads.<br/><br/>Complicating matters is that the crew of "Inglourious Basterds" soldiers of which Novak is a member appear on screen in only a couple of the six chapters of the movie. <br/><br/>Nonetheless, do no be afraid of the film's two and a half hour running time, because if you stick through to the end not only will you enjoy an exceptional movie you will, finally..., get to see Novak on the big screen in a big way at the film's conclusion.  Novak goes toe to toe with Brad Pitt (effective and hilarious throughout the movie) and German TV star (and future Oscar winner) <span class="status-body"><span class="entry-content">Christoph Waltz who plays a Nazi Colonel.<br/><br/>If you're a fan of BJ Novak, Quentin Tarantino, killing of Nazis, French Cinema, or entertaining dialogue then Inglourious Basterds is a must see.<br/></span></span>]]></description>

  2054. <description><![CDATA[Episode # 74 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin puzzling over the location of the female vagina. Who has two thumbs and LOVES season two of The Office? THIS guy. When the CFO resigns, Scranton must undergo a refresher seminar on sexual harassment, but Michael sees it as a direct assault on his management style. Solution? Why, hire James P. Albini, of course. Meanwhile, Pam's mom comes to the office, Todd Packer spreads his own brand of politcal incorrectness, and Dwight begins his quest for the clitoris. My only regret is that our public school system failed him so badly. Incidental music provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

  2067. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">The 2009 Emmy Award nominees were released this week, and while there are plenty of old guard classics filling the lists, there are also a few surprises-- especially in the "Best Comedy Series" category, which sees its first animated program since 1961 with a nod to Family Guy.  Joining Seth McFarlane's controversial show on the "best" list are Entourage (great), Flight of the Conchords (great), Weeds (never seen it), How I Met Your Mother (don't find it funny), and of course 30 Rock (great) and THE OFFICE.<br/><br/>Steve Carell is once again nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, and Rainn Wilson gets another nod in the Best Supporting Actor category.  Unfortunately, Carell is up against fellow NBC powerhouse Alec Baldwin as well as Jemaine Clement from FOTC, Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory, Tony Shaloub from Monk, and Charlie Sheen for Two and a Half Men.  It's funny to see Clement nominated without Bret Mackenzie, since the show is such a duo.  Anyone who watches TBBT surely appreciates Parson's turn as "Sheldon," but is it enough to take the trophy? While Sheen's show grabs big numbers, it's surely scoffed at by most in the Hollywood comedy elite. Shaloub used to own this category, but momentum tells me Baldwin with continue to be the odds on favorite. <br/><br/>Rainn Wilson faces an equally tough crop, including Jon Cryer, from Two and a Half Men, Kevin Dillon from Entourage, Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother, and Jack McBrayer and Tracy Morgan from 30 Rock.  Jeremy Piven, the usual winner, wasn't even nominated this year, so the category is a bit more wide open than in the past-- I know the internet seems to lap up most anything NPH does, but I've just never found his horn-dog "Barney" character to be amusing in the least. As for Cryer, see Charlie Sheen in the above paragraph. Jack McBrayer is amusing as Kenneth, of course, but he's definitely a smaller part of 30 Rock's success. I love me some Johnny Drama, but I'd probably lay money on Tracy Morgan taking it home<br/><br/>So what do you guys think? Do the Office boys have a snowball's chance? Was season five of The Office funny enough to overthrow the competition?  Let us know.<br/><br/>For a full list of all the 2009 Emmy nominations, go <a href="http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20045108_20045123_20291534,00.html">HERE</a>.<br/><br/><br/></div><br/><br type="_moz"/>]]></description>

  2176. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">We've been following "Away We Go" for many months now, and after a limited debut on June 5th, the film will start rolling out across the country very soon.<br/><br/><div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcsi.dll/bilde?Site=EB&Date=20090610&Category=REVIEWS&ArtNo=906119986&Ref=AR&Maxw=438"/><br/></div><br/>For those of you who have been living under a rock, rottentomatoes.com offers this summary:<br/><br/></div><div style="margin-left: 40px; text-align: justify;">Directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty) from an original screenplay by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, this funny and heartfelt film follows the journey of an expectant couple...  Directed by Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty) from an original screenplay by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, this funny and heartfelt film follows the journey of an expectant couple (John Krasinski [The Office] and Maya Rudolph [Saturday Night Live), as they travel the U.S. in search of the perfect place to put down roots and raise their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover home on their own terms for the first time.

Nice people also go to “Terminator Salvation,” but it doesn’t make them any nicer. “Away We Go” opened last week in New York and Los Angeles, and now rolls out after lukewarm reviews accusing Verona and Burt of being smug, superior and condescending. These are not sins if you have something to be smug about and much reason to condescend [...] If their characters find they are superior to many people, well, maybe they are. “This movie does not like you,” sniffs Tony Scott of the New York Times.

This usually corresponds to the point where a show with falling ratings apparently becomes more desperate to draw viewers in. In the process of undergoing these changes, the TV or movie series loses its original appeal. Shows that have "jumped the shark" are typically deemed to have passed their peak."<br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(255, 0, 51);">WARNING: FINALE SPOILERS</span><br/></div><br/>One of the "signs" of JTS, according to the site is:<br/><br/><div style="margin-left: 40px; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-style: italic;">Birth, when a new baby is added to a show's cast (and often unnaturally aged to a preschooler the season following the birth), sometimes to accommodate an actress's real-life pregnancy but usually for the same reasons a New kid in town might otherwise be brought in. (Ex: Malcolm in the Middle and the introduction of Jamie)</span><br/></div><br/>Of course, another one of the JTS "signs" is also:<br/><br/><div style="margin-left: 40px;">They did it, in which two main characters have sex, particularly if their sexual tension was deemed part of the show's appeal. (Ex: Who's The Boss? or I Dream of Jeannie)<br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(255, 0, 51);">WARNING: FINALE SPOILERS</span><br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">But I think many people agree that the writers managed to keep the show afloat despite having JAM officially hook up.  CAN they do it again with this pregnancy plot?  Do you actually look forward to a Mini-Halpert on the show? How do you think this will play out? Will they dare pull a "miscarriage" plot of some sort?<br/><br/>Give us your opinions below and we'll definitely reference them in  TWSS #72!<br/></div><br/>]]></description>

  2311. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/>As mentioned in this week's podcast, NBC announced their fall schedule earlier this week. Well, sort of...<br/><br/>NBC announced the shows on their Fall Schedule, including The Office of course. Interest in Parks and Recreation from The Office creative team Greg Daniels and Michael Schur has been mixed, but NBC went ahead and renewed the show starring Amy Poehler. NBC also announced that SNL Weekend Update would be returning to Thursday nights at least on an occasional basis. NBC didn't renew My Name is Earl, but didn't exactly cancel it either, leaving the show in limbo.<br/><br/>But NBC didn't provide an actual schedule. So, we don't know if The Office is keeping it's Thursday 9 pm timeslot, or what shows will air before and after.  It is certainly possible that The Office could be moved to the 8 pm slot likely vacated by My Name is Earl.  NBC is expected to announce the full schedule and timeslots later this month.<br/><br/>Speaking of Parks and Recreation, we've received some notes about whether we will cover this show or review any episodes. With the summer hiatus coming soon, it does provide an opportunity to go back and talk about this show. So, would you like us to review Parks and Recreation, or would you like more Retro episodes from Season 2?  Leave a comment and let us know!<br/>]]></description>

Hopefully I will be pleasantly surprised.  As for the "B" plot-- a huge thanks to NBC for spoiling that for me during LAW & ORDER last night.  Idiots. Of course, it COULD just be a fake-out, but either way, I feel extremely annoyed.

  2347. <description><![CDATA[from <a href="http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118003228.html?categoryid=14&cs=1">Variety</a>:<br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify; font-style: italic;">NBC has Tina Fey-style plans for "The Office's" Mindy Kaling, signing the multihyphenate to an overall deal with the Peacock and Universal Media Studios.<br/><br/>Under terms of the two-year, seven-figure deal, Kaling will continue to write for and appear on "The Office" next season while simultaneously developing a comedy in which she would also star.<br/><br/>"This is my first step in a Transformers-style way to take over the whole world," Kaling quipped. "I've only ever worked for NBC, and I've felt an enormous amount of support from the executives there."<br/><br/>Much like "30 Rock" star-exec producer Fey, Kaling is known for both her writing and acting skills. Behind the scenes, Kaling is a co-exec producer on "The Office," having written notable episodes including "The Dundies," "Diwali" and this season's "Golden Ticket."<br/><br/>On camera, Kaling stars as Kelly Kapoor, the chatty customer service representative at paper company Dunder Mifflin.<br/><br/>NBC primetime entertainment prexy Angela Bromstad called Kaling "a rare and unique talent."<br/><br/>"Her comic sensibility is perfect for what we stand for in NBC comedy," Bromstad said.<br/><br/>Kaling, who notes that her time at "The Office" has been akin to going through "the Greg Daniels Graduate School of Writing," said her tastes now skew in the single-camera comedy direction -- but that she isn't opposed to writing a multicamera laffer.<br/><br/>In kicking around different development ideas, Kaling said she's drawn to workplace comedies but is also interested in buddy shows in the vein of "Flight of the Conchords."<br/><br/>"I've always wanted to do another show about women," said Kaling, whose past credits include writing the WB pilot "Mindy and Brenda," along with Brenda Withers, for Carsey-Werner and Steve Martin. That project was about two female best friends straight out of college.<br/><br/>Kaling has been with "The Office" since the show's launch. As an actress, she has appeared as Richard Lewis' assistant in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and on film in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Unaccompanied Minors" and "License to Wed."<br/><br/>Kaling is repped by UTA and 3 Arts.<br/></div>]]></description>

Greetings from the "cibercafe" at the Grand Mayan Riviera Maya resort, just outside of Playa Del Carmen.  Been pretty busy for the last few days (just got back from seeing Chichen Itza-- holy crap, the heat!), so I haven´t had a chance to access a computer. </p>

  2483. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">By Kevin Crossman</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br/>We haven't seen much of Melora Hardin and the character of Jan Levenson since the infamous "Baby Shower" episode earlier this season. We know that Hardin has been busy appearing in the Broadway cast of "Chicago," but with recent news and several projects hitting the marketplace right now it's definitely "The Month of Melora."<br/><br/>Hardin's first project of note is this weekend's box office champ, <span style="font-style: italic;">Hanna Montana: The Movie</span>. And while I'm willing to spend a lot of time checking out Office related movie projects (and even like most of them), guess what movie I'm <span style="font-weight: bold;">not</span> seeing?<br/><br/>Coming up next weekend is the high school fantasy film <span style="font-style: italic;">17 Again</span> with Zac Efron and Matthew Perry... and Melora Hardin. As much as I have no interest in Efron, I do like Perry and some of other costars including Leslie Mann and Thomas Lennon. So, remind me to NetFlix this when it comes out on DVD. (remember... <a href="http://www.netflix.com/?mqso=80023862">support TWSS with a two-week trial to NetFlix</a>).<br/><br/>We also have more details of <span style="font-style: italic;">You</span>, the labor of love from Hardin and her husband Gildart Jackson that we mentioned on the last TWSS episode. According to <a href="http://twitter.com/MeloraHardin">Hardin's Twitter post</a>, "Download @YouTheFilm for Mom May 8th at youthefilm.com, itunes, and amazon!".  You can learn more at <a href="http://www.youthefilm.com">youthefilm.com</a>.<br/><br/>Of course, what we're most interested in is whether Jan will return to "The Office." Well, if history is any indication then just as fans of Team Karen were bummed to learn about a new pilot for Rashida Jones, those fans of Jan can't be excited to learn about <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i81c348259fac112e76fa2c6efed0af2e">"Lights Out," a new FX drama pilot</a> that will star Melora Hardin. Hardin will play a surgeon in the series pilot that will start filming this week.<br/><br/><div style="margin-left: 40px;">"Lights Out" centers on Patrick "Lights Out" Leary (McCallany), an aging former heavyweight boxing champion who struggles to find his identity and support his wife (Hardin), a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and three daughters after his fighting days are over. <br/><br/>That leads him to take a job as a legbreaker, collecting on unpaid gambling debts. He is diagnosed with pugilistic dementia (a neurological disorder that affects boxers who receive multiple blows to the head), so he decides he'll need to make another big payday to support himself and his family before his brain turns to jelly. <br type="_moz"/></div><br/>According to the article in the Hollywood Reporter, Hardin will not return to "The Office" this season, but "is expected to guest on one or more episodes" next season.<br/><br/>Learn More:<br/><a href="http://www.melora.com">www.melora.com</a><br/>]]></description>

  2562. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">There was big controversy in some fan forums this week as some suggested that Michael Scott didn't really "quit" in last week's episode, "New Boss." Instead, they surmised that he said "I acquit."  Matt and I discussed this on TWSS Podcast Episode #66 and indicated that we didn't think it was "acquit" and that moreover if that really was what Michael said it might be a "jump the shark" moment.<br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">I'm pleased to report that The Office's cutest cast blogger has settled the controversy. Jenna Fischer writes in her <a href="http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=27753303&blogId=479035811">MySpace blog</a>:<br/></div><br/><div style="margin-left: 40px; font-style: italic; font-weight: bold; text-align: justify;">Jenna there is crazy Controversy if Micheal said "I quit" or "I acquit".  Look at any message board, it's crazy.  Can you please set the record straight? – Erock from Fenton, MO<br/><br/>He said “I quit”.  And he meant it.  You will see how it all plays out this week on the show.<br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">I'm sure we'll all the info we need on tonight's episode. But for those who really want to know, we can thank Jenna for being plugged into the concerns of the fans.<br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">Also, with <a href="http://www.twitter.com/bbbaumgartner">Brian Baumgartner</a> and <a href="http://www.twitter.com/melorahardin">Melora Hardin</a> joining Twitter in recent weeks, I predict Jenna Fischer will be Twittering by April 15th.<br/><br/><br/></div>]]></description>

  2636. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">As mentioned in TWSS #64, a new video is available that may be of interest to fans of The Office. In fact, it marks a major milestone in the popularity of the show. The Office is now the basis of a parody porno video.<br/><br/>Adult movie reviews won't be a regular feature on TWSS but for Office fans with a liberal views on such things, The Office: an XXX Parody from New Sensations may be a turn on. Written and directed by Lee Roy Myers, the 2.5 hour hardcore feature includes thinly veiled characatures of our Dunder Mifflin favorites in an office setting with which we are familiar. Instead of Michael Scott, the "World's Bust Boss" is Michelle Scott (star Ashlynn Brooke). The receptionist is named "Sam" and a salesman is named "Dwyane." Are you seeing a pattern?  Of course, Kevin is still Kevin and Jim is Jimmy, so the renaming thing only goes so far. And, unfortunately, there's no Stanley, Andy, Phyllis, Creed, or warehouse characters.  In this video Oscar is straight, which might be a plus or a minus depending on your tastes.<br/><br/>The film features a mix of humor with adult-oriented parody moments about The Office, including a hilarious and completely non-sexual scene between the faux Jim and faux Dwight. But much of the subject matter does quickly migrate into XXX territory. For example, Michelle calls everyone to the conference room for a hands-on sexual harassment seminar that features a stripper with very loose morals.<br/><br/>As for the adult content I wouldn't call myself an expert in this genre but I am thinking this isn't exactly hall of fame material. Probably the best mix of humor and titillation is provided in a scene where the faux Toby finally gets to "stick it to the boss," along with a faux Holly. And, of course, there are several versions of "that's what she said" in the video.<br/><br/>The DVD features menus and packaging very reminiscent of NBC's version, and there are bloopers and interviews along with an iPod-compatible version of the movie on the second disc. But, really, are DVD extras going to make a difference? Either you've decided you have to see this, or you're shaking your head in disgust.<br/><br/><a href="http://theofficexxx.com/">Trailer, photos, and more info - not safe for work</a><br/></div><br/><br/>]]></description>

  2756. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor on The Office) participated in an online chat with OfficeTally yesterday. Here are some of the more interesting details.<br/><br/>Lecture Circuit was originally envisioned as a regular one-part episode. When the first cut of the episode came in at 42 minutes, meaning it would be extremely difficult to cut down to 21 minutes for airing. Greg Daniels then went to the network to see about turning this into a two-part episode, and the network agreed.  As an outcome of the episode expansion, the Andy and Angela storylines were hastily added and shot the next week. All of which basically reinforces the observations on the last podcast that these two storylines seem shoehorned in. They were. Literally.<br/><br/>A reader asked about the <a href="http://www.twitter.com/iamkellyfiece">twitter.com/iamkellyfiece</a> account, assumed to be written by Kaling herself. However, Kaling noted that the posts are being written by two writers assistants. Kaling said she would reconsider twittering in the future.<br/><br/>Kaling confirmed we'll see more of Jan Levenson (Melora Hardin) in future episodes, and in a bombshell moment confirmed that Amy Ryan will return as Holly Flax! She wasn't sure for how many episodes, but noted she will appear in at least one this season. One wonders if the key part of that statement is "this season," leaving Holly fans everywhere thinking that more appearances next season are a possibility. I guess we'll see.<br/><br/>Lastly, Kaling mentioned that she loved Ed Helms' 1-2-3-4 song from Lecture Circuit like I did.  You can view the entire transcript at:<br/></div><br/><a href="http://www.officetally.com/mindy-kaling-visits-the-officetally-chat-room">http://www.officetally.com/mindy-kaling-visits-the-officetally-chat-room</a><br/><br/><br type="_moz"/>]]></description>

With the Scranton branch booming, Michael and Pam are on an excellent adventure to bring a bit of the old Scott magic to the rest of Dunder Mifflin. Meanwhile, Jim and Dwight, newly crowned kings of the Party Planning Committee, struggle to mollify Kelly after forgetting her birthday-- may I suggest a theme of 'horse hunting?' Andy strikes out, Angela makes us sick, and Creed discovers a new form of currency. Truly, this is the best episode of TWSS ever recorded. Am I a liar? Would a liar bring mini-Mounds bars?

  2921. GUEST STARS JACK BLACK ("SCHOOL OF ROCK"), JESSICA ALBA ("FANTASTIC

  2923. (Rainn Wilson) fire safety seminar goes awry, he must make amends to
  2924. the stressed-out office. Michael (Steve Carell) tries a number of ways
  2925. to get his employees to relax before discovering that he is the number
  2926. one stressor at work. So that people won't feel afraid of him, he
  2927. insists on a no-holds-barred roast of himself. Also, while watching a
  2928. pirated movie, Andy (Ed Helms) is convinced that Jim (John Krasinski)

Lots of questions remain: will the "guest stars" fit into the show? Will the the episode be extra "wacky" to try and appeal to this massive mainstream audience that will theoretically be sticking around to watch? Will Michael's roast be as predictable as it sounds (Michael throws the roast, no one wants to insult him, he insists, they insult him, he feels bad, everyone has to cheer him up, etc.), or will the writers surprise me as they have done many times in the past? Here's hoping for the best.<br/><br/>Oh, and if you're not busy before the episode, there's apparently some football game or something going on.<br/></div><br/><br/>]]></description>

  3004. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">No big shocker, but NBC officially
  3005. announced yesterday that they are renewing THE OFFICE for the 2009-2010
  3006. season (along with 30 ROCK).<br/>
  3007. <br/>
  3008. As for the still unnamed Amy Poehler non-spinoff show, <a href="http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amy-Poehler-Show-1001691.aspx">TV Guide</a> gives a few more details:<br/>
  3009. <br/>
  3010. </div>
  3011. <div style="margin-left: 40px; text-align: justify;">This much we know:
  3012. NBC's new and as-yet-untitled comedy starring Saturday Night Live
  3013. alumna Amy Poehler as the chairwoman of the Department of Parks and
  3014. Recreation in a small Indiana town is not a spin-off of The Office —
  3015. even though that is what Office exec producer Greg Daniels originally
  3016. was asked by the network to explore.<br/>
  3017. </div>
  3018. <div style="text-align: justify;"><br/>
  3019. According to the article, the show will use essentially the same
  3020. "mockumentary" format used on THE OFFICE and will share much the same
  3021. comic sensibility (Poehler's Leslie Knope is also a clueless boss with
  3022. an exasperated staff). Thankfully, the two shows will never interact
  3023. with one another:<br/>
  3024. <br/>
  3025. </div>
  3026. <div style="margin-left: 40px; text-align: justify;">"Actually,
  3027. theoretically, we can't," Michael Schur, an exec producer on the new
  3028. show, tells TVGuide.com, "because Rashida Jones is playing a different
  3029. human being — unless [the new show's] Ann Logan and Karen Fillipelli
  3030. are identical twins who don't know the other one exists." Are the new
  3031. show's bosses at all bummed that these worlds can never collide? "The
  3032. network might be more disappointed than I am," Daniels tells us,
  3033. adding, "I've never been a huge fan of those kinds of stunts."<br/>
  3034. <br/>
  3035. </div>
  3036. <div style="text-align: justify;">The article also confirms that
  3037. Rashida Jones will reappear on THE OFFICE in an episode airing some
  3038. time after February 1st. Poehler's new show is set to debut on April
  3039. 9th.<br/>
  3040. </div>
  3041. <br/><div style="text-align: justify;">Will there ever be a TRUE spinoff to the show? Greg Daniels had this to say to the folks over at <a href="http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2009/01/the-office-stil.html">EW</a>:<br/><br/></div><div style="margin-left: 40px; text-align: justify;">"It's not possible, physically, for me to be involved in it right this second, but I'm talking to people over at The Office about another idea, and [The Office's British creator] Stephen Merchant came back and directed an episode of The Office so were were talking about the idea," Daniels told critics at NBC's annual Television Critics Tour on Thursday. "It's possible that some combination of other Office people could produce it without my giving blood for it."<br/></div><br/>
  3042. Please, Greg-- let's quit while we're ahead, m'kay?<br/><br/>]]></description>

  3059. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">Michael Ausiello over at <a href="http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/01/exclusive-amy-r.html%3Fxid%3Drss-ausiellofiles-Exclusive:%20Amy%20Ryan%20returning%20to%20%27The%20Office%27">EW.com</a> is reporting on what he calls an "exclusive" -- Greg Daniels admitted that they want Amy Ryan to return to the show.<br/>
  3060. <br/>
  3061. </div>
  3062. <div style="margin-left: 40px; text-align: justify;">"She will come
  3063. back," says Daniels. "We haven't written it yet, but we're discussing
  3064. her coming back for the season finale. We're hoping she'll be
  3065. available."<br/>
  3066. <br/>
  3067. Daniels went on to say that he's "very open" to working out a more
  3068. permanent Office arrangement with Ryan. "Because [Michael and Holly]
  3069. have such a deep connection, I don't think she can blow in and out
  3070. every so often," he explains. "It would be too hard for him as a human
  3071. being. So, we're hoping to find some very significant things for them.
  3072. And if we can get her to sign on for a really long period, we'll do it."<br/>
  3073. </div>
  3074. <div style="text-align: justify;"><br/>
  3075. While this is good news, and I am all about Holly returning, IS this
  3076. truly a confirmation of anything? They WANT Amy Ryan to return, and
  3077. they're TALKING about it, but nothing has been officially decided. 
  3078. I'll exude more geek-joy when something is down on paper.<br/>

  3106. <description><![CDATA[From the Boston Globe:<br/><br/><div style="margin-left: 40px;">For Hollywood funnyman Steve Carell, who spends his summers in Marshfield, the Marshfield Hills General Store was an opportunity too good to pass up.<br/><br/>"This is much more of an emotional investment than a business one," Carell said of his recent purchase of the store.<br/><br/>"I saw an opportunity to help to preserve a little piece of history," Carell said in an e-mail. "I also felt that places like the Marshfield Hills General Store represent a gathering place, and give people a sense of community. These spots are growing more and more scarce. I hope to keep this particular one alive and well."<br/><br/>Carell learned the store was up for sale in October, when his sister-in-law Tish Vivado went to California to visit Carell and her sister, actress Nancy Walls. According to Vivado, who lives in Marshfield, Carell had always been interested in being part of the community. Carell purchased the store in November and the ownership changed hands on New Year's Day.<br/><br/>The store now is being run by Vivado and staff of four people. But they could get some high-profile help in the summer, when Carell plans to take an active role in the day-to-day activities.<br/><br/>"I will be manning the cash register, and stocking the shelves as time permits!" wrote Carell, a Massachusetts native. "For the time being, however, I am looking to give the building a bit of TLC."<br/></div><br/>Click <a href="http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2009/01/15/carell_leads_with_his_heart_in_purchase_of_marshfield_store/">HERE</a> to read the entire article.<br/><br/>(Thanks to listener Matt Walsh for the tip)<br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

One has to wonder, though, just how they will play this-- In any "real world" scenario, Michael would have been fired years ago. Since we need him to stick around, just how "no-nonsense" will this new boss be? Will he just be early "Jan" in male form? Or will Michael actually find himself in some serious trouble? Only time will tell, I suppose, but I'm really looking forward to how this plays out.<br/><br/>Read the entire press release <a href="http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news.aspx?id=20090115nbc01">HERE</a> if you're so inclined.<br/></div><br/>(THE WIRE fun fact: Idris Elba was born and raised in England and in real life talks with a rather "posh" accent!)<br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

  3154. <description><![CDATA[Episode # 59 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin suddenly craving an Awesome Blossom (with extra awesome).  I want my baby back baby back baby back, I want my baby back baby back baby back. It's crunch time for Michael and Jan as they try to win the Lackawana County account, but will Michael's apparent ineptitude queer the deal? Back in the office, Agent Michael Scarn (FBI) makes his dramatic debut, Dwigt gets dissed, and Jim and Pam have their first date (or do they?). One thing's for sure, TWSS listeners- We'd NEVER leave you at a high school hockey game.Incidental music

  3180. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/>For Office fans who can't wait to see their favorite Office stars to come back for the next new episode on January  15, you may wish to check out the Blu-Ray or second disc of the Step Brothers two-disc DVD. In a series of deleted scenes, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly's characters go on job interviews as a team. Two of those interviewers are played by The Office's Craig Robinson and Ed Helms.<br/><br/>Craig Robinson continues his association with Step Brothers producer Judd Apatow by appearing in the funniest of the deleted job interviews. Entitled "Nad Check,"  the scene allows Robinson to go on a slow-burn of a rant similar to his scene in Knocked Up. And it's just as filthy and funny.<br/><br/>Ed Helms' scene is called License to Interview and references the step brothers dressing in tuxedos for their interviews. Helms' scene is just okay but allows him to portray a different character than Andy Bernard.  Helms had a similar scene deleted from Night at the Museum (it's available on the DVD), though one hopes the part he's filmed for Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian will make the final cut.<br/><br/>The Step Brothers DVD is available everywhere and from NetFlix.<br/><br/>If you'd like a bit of a preview, you can see this original improvised clip from the set of Step Brothers featuring both Helms and Robinson. Check it out on <a href="http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/125d21fdb5/at-an-office-w-craig-robinson-ed-helms-from-craig-robinson-and-ed-helms">FunnyOrDie.com</a>.<br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

  3327. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">We mentioned it quite a while ago, but <a href="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/television/news/e3i811727a8754c8b9b450b785e41c6c081">NBC officially confirmed</a> today that The Office will indeed air a special one hour episode immediately following the Super Bowl on February 1st. <br/><br/><div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/photos/stylus/62295-office_341x182.jpg"/><br/></div><br/>Originally, the "Office Spinoff" was supposed to fill that second half hour slot, and then when THAT disappeared the Poehler show was supposed to find a home. Alas. With both shows MIA, it's up to The Office to fill the hour.<br/><br/>I brought this up a few months ago, but I think it'd be brilliant to see Jim throw a big Super Bowl party at his new house as part of the plot. Shades of "Email Surveillance" and "Dinner Party" perhaps, but it'd definitely be topical and would give us a glimpse of the cast in a new situation (Kevin with a huge bet riding on the game, Pam & Jim trying to entertain as a couple, etc.).<br/><br/>If any of the writing staff is looking for more ideas, you have my email address :)<br/><br/>EDIT:<br/><br/>Yes, I am aware that the details of the episode are already wandering around on the internets.  I just refuse to be spoiled-- so there! :) It's more fun my way.<br/><br/><br/></div><br/>]]></description>

  3364. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">We've talked for a while about John Krasinski's directorial debut, his own adaptation of the late David Foster Wallace's BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN (plot: when her boyfriend leaves with little explanation, a doctoral candidate in anthropology tries to remedy her heartache by interviewing men about their behavior).  The film stars Krasinski, Julianne Nicholson, Timothy Hutton, Dominic Cooper, Christopher Meloni, and Rashida Jones, and was set to be released sometime in the new year.<br/><br/>Well, some extremely good news came for Johnny K. today by way of Park City, Utah-- it seems that BRIEF has been selected as one of the 16 official entries in the 2009 Sundance Film Festival's U.S. DRAMATIC COMPETITION (selected from 1,026 submissions). <br/><br/>Nicely done. Buzz at Sundance can only help the film spread to a wider audience, and here's hoping that we'll actually get to see what John can do on the big screen (no offense to fans of period football flicks or cheesy rom-coms).<br/><br/>For a list of other films accepted into the festival, click <a href="http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/sundance/2008/12/sundance-2009-f.html">HERE</a>.<br/><br/><br/><br/></div><br/><br/>]]></description>

  3451. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/>NBC.com is featuring the first in a four-part webisode series called "The Outburst" today. Though most fans of The Office were underwhelmed by the previous webisode series, "The Accountants" and "Kevin's Loan", fan will surely find this one more satisfying. "The Outburst" features a much larger cast of supporting actors from The Office and the writing and direction is on-par with broadcast episodes of the show.<br/><br/><div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3170/3046298041_cd7fdacdca_o.jpg"/><br/></div><br/>The plot is fairly simple and shown during the first episode of the series. Oscar (Oscar Nunez) screams at someone on the telephone and storms off in anger, setting off curiosity by the others in the office. Andy (Ed Helms) offers a $100 bounty on who can find out who Oscar was talking to, setting off a series of vignettes where the other employees play amateur-detective. In the fourth episode, we learn who Oscar directed the outburst towards - and the result may surprise you.<br/><br/>Directed by Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky and written by Nate Federman & Jonathan Hughes, "The Outburst" feels like an eleven minute broadcast episode - albeit without the "big five" stars Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, and B.J. Novak. For example, there is an intense conclusion to the third episode that features Oscar addressing the rest of the office as well as the documentary team that may get you to jump from your seat in excitement and perhaps fear. The participation of nearly the entire supporting cast really sets this webisode series apart. Every supporting player except Craig Robinson is on board, including Toby (Paul Leiberstein) who is returning to the show. There are several scenes that use Creed (Creed Bratton) effectively and a hilarious scene with Kelly (Mindy Kaling) that will warm the hearts of cellphone fans everywhere.<br/><br/>Perhaps what sets "The Outburst" apart is the effective use of the character of Oscar. As shown in episodes like "Business Trip" the character is more nuanced than often portrayed and Nunez is given a lot of room to stretch the character. Unlike Brian Baumgartner's one-note portrayal of Kevin in "Kevin's Loan," Nunez keeps fans interested with a range of emotions including anger, exasperation, and a bit of condescension.<br/><br/>Every fan of The Office should go out of their way to watch "The Outburst."  The interplay between the characters is top-notch and the writing is crisp and hilarious.  Additionally, unlike "Kevin's Loan" this series has a great payoff to the mystery in the fourth episode. In fact, the twist is so good you'll want to go back and rewatch the series to see the clues that were sprinkled along the way.<br/><br/>"The Outburst" is hilarious and is "appointment TV" for your computer.<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">Matt says:</span><br/><br/>I don't have a whole lot to add to what Kevin has written above, and what I've already said on the podcast, but I DO want to emphasize that this is by far the most entertaining webisode series to date.  Must see TV, as the saying goes.<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/></div>]]></description>

Another source, however, says Novak may be done with The Office for good, at least as a performer. "He may write more episodes," whispers my mole, "but as far as playing Ryan, I think he's ready to move on."</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">It's unclear how Novak's absence will be explained on screen, but making Ryan a victim of the current recession would be the logical way to go -- particularly if you-know-who returns to Scranton and decides she wants her old receptionist job back (hint, hint). </span><br/></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br/> Kevin's been ragging on Novak this season, and I haven't been a big fan of his cartoonish "villainy," but I don't think either of us would like to see him leave.  <br/><br/>Thoughts?<br/></div><br/>]]></description>

  3584. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">Ricky Gervais was at the Paley Center this past week to promote his new HBO production "Ricky Gervais: Out Of England -- The Stand-up Special." When asked by the intrepid <a href="http://www.tvguide.com/News/Ricky-Gervais-Visiting-55493.aspx">TV Guide</a> reporter if Gervais would like to make a guest appearance on the US version of THE OFFICE, Gervais had this to say:<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">Gervais even has an idea for how he could appear: as himself, playing struggling actor Andy Melman on HBO's Extras.</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">"I'd quite like them to maybe be watching an episode of Extras, and Michael Scott comes along and goes, 'This guy is no good. If they ever do a remake, I think I should do that part."</span><br/><br/>Personally, I think Gervais shouldn't come within a country mile of the US Office.  Sure, he can write another episode (he still owes us for "Prison Mike," after all) or direct, but to have him appear as David Brent would be incredibly silly (and having him appear AT ALL would be a major distraction).<br/><br/>30 ROCK has really been milking the celebrity cameo this season, and I can see the temptation of getting Gervais to appear.  Still, I think once we go down that road there will really be no coming back.<br/></div><br/><br/><script src="http://www.ooyala.com/player.js?width=480&height=361&embedCode=x3Mzk2OrI-YMi6mUjrct-hNSrw-K7rDD"></script><br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

HR describes the film as being:<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">about a man who walks around with a beaver puppet on his hand, treating it as something close to a human creature with human feelings. It's a whimsical and winning script, according to those who have seen it [...] The fable, which occupies the fantastical territory somewhere between "Being John Malkovich" and "Lars and the Real Girl," has a lot of studios interested. </span><br/><br/>Sounds to me like Steve is gunning for his own "bushiest beaver" award at this year's Dundies!<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

  3698. <div style="text-align: justify;">In other words, we still don't know much more than we did five months ago. As I've said before, I'm not a huge Poehler fan and still resent the fact that Schur and Daniels are being taken away from The Office in order to produce this new show. Still, I guess we'll see sometime next spring whether it was worth it.  And hey, worst case scenerio the show tanks and they'll be back writing The Office in season six :)<br/><br/>BTW, click on <a href="http://www.paleycenter.org/la-fall-series-2008-the-office-writers">THIS LINK</a> for several pictures of the writing/producing staff taken at the event.<br/></div><br/><br type="_moz"/>]]></description>

The Office's ranking of 123 is 17th on the list and the only comedy in the top 20. This means that The Office tops other comedies like Two and A Half Men that regularly score much higher ratings. All of which indicates that my recent declaration of a man-crush on Jim Halpert shows that I'm a typical Office watcher with a high emotional attachment.<br/><br/>Check out the original article <a href=" http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2008/09/tv-shows-emotio.html">HERE</a>.<br/><br/><br/></div>]]></description>

There were two Office related moments of note though. The show's opening montage included TV personalities delivering catch-phrases of yesteryear. The Office's John Krasinski channeled Joey from Friends for "How you doing?" and Rainn Wilson also appeared though his quote escapes me.<br/><br/>More entertaining was British Office star Ricky Gervais who came out to tell the winners how to accept an Emmy. This seqeued into a reminder that Gervais was not present for winning last year, and that presenters Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert had given the award to Steve Carell. Carell was positioned in the front row and sat stonefaced while Gervais mock-insulted him with lines like "I made you what you are and I get nothing back" and "I don't think that's an Emmy, it's actually a shoddy remake."  Gervais eventually ran into the audience to obtain his Emmy. It was a wonderful bit that reminded audience viewers of Gervais' role in creating The Office and why he and Carell are so funny.<br/></div><br/><object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPl0EJ41Wak&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vPl0EJ41Wak&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object><br/><br/>]]></description>

  3943. <description><![CDATA[by Kevin Crossman<br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">George Clooney’s Leatherheads is at once a throwback sports movie about the early days of professional football but also a throwback to the era’s screwball comedies. Clooney directed the movie written by Duncan Brantley and Rick Reilly, and also stars alongside Renee Zellweger. The Office’s John Krasinski stretches his acting chops with an effective performance in a tricky role.<br/><br/>Leatherheads tells of the story of Dodge Connolly (Clooney), an aging football hero in the days when “professional” football was closer to rugby or even organized street fighting. But Connolly sees a way to save his sport by attempting to recruit handsome, glamorous college football star Carter Rutherford (Krasinski). Meanwhile, Lexie Littleton is a star newspaper reporter sent to dig up dirt on Rutherford who is a war hero and product pitchman in addition to the star of the Princeton gridiron.<br/><br/>For the first two acts, Clooney deftly directs a tale that respects and celebrates the subject matter and the type of filmmaking present in those days of yore. He has several effective scenes of snappy dialogue with Zellweger who is brilliant at playing the smart and sexy reporter. Clooney is underrated as a physical comedian and plays many scenes for laughs in the early part of the film that will keep you laughing and smiling throughout.<br/><br/>During the last act, the film takes a distinct dramatic turn as the story heads towards its climax. Will Rutherford’s slimy agent (Jonathan Pryce) find a way to keep him in the spotlight or will his secret ruin his career? There is true dramatic tension and while it is distinct in tone it is not lacking in effectiveness or in pleasure for the audience. Additionally, as a sports movie the climax provides a true twist unlike any I’ve ever seen in the genre. The twist is among the many well-crafted aspects of this movie that is great fun.<br/><br/>Office fans should take note that Krasinski isn’t phoning in the performance as Jim Halpert circa 1925. Instead, Krasinski plays the role with equal parts likable all-star and haunted melancholy. He’s extremely effective in a trio that involves two Oscar winners, and his role is the most nuanced and well rounded in the film. Krasinski proves he has the acting chops to form a healthy career.<br/><br/>The DVD extras are interesting but Office fans should not feature very little Krasinski material.<br/><br/>   - Deleted Scenes<br/>   - Football’s Beginnings – an inside look at the making of the film with brief interviews with the stars<br/>   - Visual Effects – an interesting side by side look at the scenes before and after the special effects were added to recreate football scenes from 1925<br/>   - No Pads, No Fear – Preparation for the film’s football scenes<br/>   - George Clooney – A Leatherheaded Prankster<br/>   - Feature commentary with George Clooney and Producer/Actor Grant Heslov <br/>   – An unfortunate extra that features little of the charm and prankish fun that we usually see from Clooney.<br/><br/>Overall, Leatherheads is a film that is fun for men and women of all ages. Office fans should immediately head to the DVD store to pick up the film and root for their favorite salesman in a different kind of uniform.<br/></div><br/>---------------------------<br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">Kevin obviously liked this movie much more than *I* did.  See my original review <a href="http://thatswhatshesaid.libsyn.com/index.php?post_id=325409">HERE</a>.<br/></div><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">-Matt</span><br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

For a while, he was an aspiring filmmaker in New York. He worked for a postproduction house, loved the job, and even now talks of it wistfully. “I was and still am very infatuated with filmmaking,” he says, before describing his editing duties in all earnestness as “sexy and fun.” While training as an editor, he laid down a few rough-cut voice-over “scratch tracks.” From there, he landed some real voice-over gigs. From there, he got an agent. Finally, he realized he could quit his job and pursue stand-up comedy full-time, because, as he says, “I was finding this thing that I love, which is acting like a jackass professionally.”</span><br/><br/><br/>Read the rest of the article <a href="http://nymag.com/arts/tv/profiles/50226/">HERE</a>.<br/></div><br/><br/>]]></description>

  4023. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br/><br/>Coming to stores on September 2nd is the DVD release of Season 4 of The Office. The four-disc set contains all 14 episodes and a host of extras. The entire set comprises over 400 minutes of content.<br/><br style="font-weight: bold;"/><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Episodes</span><br/><br/>Each episode is presented in pristine widescreen format and looks sharp on DVD. Season 4 saw many of the office relationships take on new roles and challenges and once again a season collection like this is a great way to revisit the story arcs and go back to earlier episodes for hints of what is to come later. In particular, the character of Ryan (B.J. Novak) is a completely new role and by season's end is in a very, very different place than when the season starts. His "transformation" is fun to watch over the course of a season.<br/><br/>The packaging of episodes is pretty much what you'd expect. The episodes are shown in entirety, with Deleted Scenes for each episode easy to get to after playing the episode. Unfortunately, the Deleted Scenes are presented as one large clip, unlike the Deleted Scenes on The Office website where you can pick and choose which scene to watch. But it is hard to complain about the amount of deleted scenes, which run from over five minutes for the regular 21 minute episodes to over twelve minutes for some of the "hour long" episodes like "Fun Run" and "Dunder Mifflin Infinity."<br/><br/>One of the interesting and unusual episodes this season was "Did I Stutter?" In addition to taking the episode name from a line of dialogue, the episode was unusual in that it featured the character of Stanley (Leslie David Baker) in a major role. Thankfully, Baker's performance is one of the strongest from any actor in any episode in the entire set. "Did I Stutter?" also features a interesting and informative commentary from Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Leslie David Baker, Kate Flannery, Justin Spitzer, Brent Forrester, Gene Stupnitsky, and Randall Einhorn.<br/><br/>Fans of Jim and Pam are not left out in Season 4, as our favorite TV couple actually get to be a couple. This puts the characters in new situations, such as their overnight stay at Schrute Farm in "Money" and their cringe-worthy visit to Michael and Jan's condo in "Dinner Party." The engagement storyline is another season-long story arc, though as fans of the show know it did not quite conclude in the season finale, "Goodbye Toby."<br/><br/>Speaking of the season finale, "Goobye Toby" features one of the best performances in the entire series by Steve Carell. Carell masterfully communicates his joy at saying goodbye to his HR nemesis, and the excitement of meeting a new "love of his life" in the character of Holly (Amy Ryan).<br/><br/><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Bonus Materials</span><br/><br/>A complete list of bonus features is shown below. "Unique to the DVD" items include the hilarious 22-minute blooper reel that every fan of The Office should watch again and again. The complete Michael Scott Dunder Mifflin Ad is the kind of extra that makes sense for the DVD and is a welcome addition. Similarly, the Summer Vacation Promo features some unique content and is a good piece to play prior to watching the season opener, "Fun Run." Unfortunately, the Summer Vacation Promo is available on Disc 4, rather than on Disc 1 where it would have fit chronologically.<br/><br/>Last season, I complained about episode commentaries with too many participants. This year, the number of participants has not been reduced, but the overall effectiveness has improved as there is less "talking over" and everyone trying to get a word in edgewise (this is also attributed to a couple "quiet" writers on some of the commentaries). Only Rainn Wilson and Jenna Fischer participate of the "Big Four" but their presence is most welcome on three of the four commentaries, even if we do miss Steve Carell and John Krasinski. B.J. Novak, Leslie David Baker, and Paul Liberstein all provide insights to their characters and the process of creating the show. The commentaries are very entertaining, though some fans may wish for a more-mellow Melora Hardin in next-year's collection.<br/><br/>Available in some packages and probably the best overall extra is the table draft script of "Dinner Party." For those who are unfamiliar with script formats, this is a great way to see what the writers produce prior to filming an episode (in a year that featured the writers' strike, this is even more appropriate). It's lots of fun to read the script and watch the episode at the same time. For example, the video camera in the bedroom and the scene with Angela and Andy eating ice cream were not in the original script. The script also features of scene where Michael prank-calls Toby, sitting alone at home watching Las Vegas by himself.<br/><br/>Finally, The Office Convention Writers' Block is another good "behind the scenes" piece that provides real insight to the show (unlike the recent writer panel at Comic-Con). The camera work is a little shaky, but at least we get to see the writers answer their questions in a way that does make this piece a little more engaging compared to a pure audio version featured on podcasts like That's What She Said. <span style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">(If you missed our coverage of the OTHER panels at last year's Office convention, follow the links tn the sidebar to your right -Matt).</span><br/><br/><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Packaging</span><br/><br/>The "office" theme is presented well in the packaging. The photos and post-it notes once again make references to events of the season. In addition, the inside fold of the DVD pakage features Dwight's org chart from "Did I Stutter?"<br/><br/>The DVD menus are animated and well-done. There are visuals and audio that are pertinent to the episodes on each disc, and they provide a wonderfully immersive experience.<br/><br/><span style="font-weight: bold;">Overall</span><br/><br/>Due to the writer's strike, the season was shortened to only 14 episodes spanning 19 half-hour segments. Unfortunately, the reduction in number of episodes did not translate into a lower retail price for the collection, compared to previous seasons. As with Season 3, the extras are reduced again this year. Worse, many of the extras are already available on the NBC.com website. Still, it's nice to have all the content in one place.<br/><br/>If you're a hardcore fan of The Office, there's no question this is a must-own item. Casual fans will be well-served by this set as well, since the immersive experience can help you understand and appreciate the show's humor and sensibility. However, the middling bonus features and lesser overall value do present flaws to be aware of.<br/><br/><span style="font-weight: bold;">Bonus Materials</span><br/><br/>Bloopers, photos, and more at the official The Office DVD site.<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">Disc 1</span><br/><br/><ol><li>Deleted Scenes</li><li>Rabies: The More You Know</li></ol>

In the finale in May, Ryan joined the show as Holly, a human resources executive who catches the eye of awkward boss Michael, played by Steve Carell. Fortunately for the actress, it was more than just a flirtatious tease: She is set to appear in a six-episode arc, in which her greatest challenge might just be maintaining her composure among her castmates.</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">“You are guaranteed at least three hysterical fits of laughter between takes,” Ryan says. “It makes it easier to keep a straight face while filming, although it’s still extremely hard.

  4051. <description><![CDATA[<span style="font-style: italic;">by Kevin Crossman</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">For the Comedy and Drama Emmy Awards, nominated series submit six episodes to be judged. The six episodes are divided into three pairs that are randomly distributed to voters who view two episodes from each nominated series. The Office is competing against 30 Rock, Two and a Half Men, and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Entourage.<br/><br/>Here are the Season 4 episodes submitted for The Office:<br/>"Local Ad"<br/>"Dinner Party"<br/>"Chair Model"<br/>"Did I Stutter?"<br/>"Goodbye, Toby (Parts 1 & 2)"<br/><br/>These episodes are the most emotionally charged of the entire season, especially for longtime viewers with an investment in the couples' relationships. "Chair Model" not only features the uncomfortable humor the show is famous for, but also features the start of the "engagement storyline" that went through to the season finale, "Goobye Toby."  Of course, "Dinner Party" is another emotional and chance-taking episode that may reasonate with literate Emmy voters who see references to films like "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf." "Did I Stuffer" features tension-filled moments on par with any episode of "Law and Order."<br/><br/>So, will Season 4 be judged by these moments that transcent mere "comedy" but cross over to real emotional connection to the show's characters? Or, will Emmy voters be turned off by the sight of Dwight's Second Life avatar? We'll find out on September 21st, when ABC broadcasts the Emmy Awards.<br/><br/>Learn more at <a href="http://goldderby.latimes.com/ awards_goldderby/2008/08/article-7158293.html">The Envelope</a>.<br/><br/><br/></div><br/><br/>]]></description>

Supply will surely be limited, however, so get your orders in as soon as possible.<br/><br/>Target and other big box stores usually offer their own specials, but so far I haven't seen or heard anything-- but check the Labor Day circulars this weekend for more information.<br/><br/>I certainly don't blame anyone for choosing to buy one of these sets instead of ordering through the Amazon link.  If you HAVE ordered through Amazon, feel free to cancel your order if you so wish.<br/></div><br/><br/>See the <a href="http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8950423&st=8950423++&lp=1&type=product&cp=1&id=1891028">BEST BUY OFFER HERE</a>.<br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">EDIT: The Target set will apparently come with "60 minutes of bonus cast footage and a notepad." No idea what that footage will be. ($36.99)<br/><br/>EDIT 2: Circuit City will be offering a "Free The Office Stapler in Gelatin Mold Keychain with purchase." ($32.99)<br/></div><br/><br/>]]></description>

He looks like a whippet, he's 97 pounds and has very intense eyes and demeanor, and I knew I'd never be able to copy him. We have totally different energies and are very different as actors. He's just absolutely brilliant for what he did. I knew for the American show, what we were going for was Seinfeld-like success. People who compare the English and American Offices—there's so much ignorance in that comparison, because the English Office made 13 episodes. We make that many episodes in three months. We've made 89 episodes at this point. Their show is more like a miniseries, and our show is like an American TV show, because the demands of the market are so different.</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">It's like comparing a book and a movie. Gone With The Wind the movie and Gone With The Wind the book, it's difficult to compare them, because they're different forms. So I knew that ours needed to sustain, but I also knew that the Dwight needed to play a similar role, and I knew that [Steve Carell's] Michael Scott needed an acolyte and a foil, and I knew that Jim [Halpert, John Krasinski's character] needed someone to butt heads against. I knew that the office needed someone who was a real stickler for rules, and at the same time was a nerd and had weird, oddly obsessive-compulsive ideas about the military and gaming and fantasy worlds, but also needed to be a real in to the hierarchies of office life. I also didn't want him to be—one thing I really appreciated about the character of Gareth was that he wasn't a loser. The guy had a lot of friends, he could go to bars, he could get girls. He wasn't like the office nerd that we've seen so many times before, so I knew that—this is a very long-winded answer—I knew there were certain needs that needed to be fulfilled. I wanted to find my own way of doing that. I wanted to find my own bad haircut, my own way of kissing the boss' ass, my own way of butting heads with Jim, and so I tried to forget Gareth as much as I could.</span><br/><br/><br/>Check out the full article <a href="http://www.avclub.com/content/interview/rainn_wilson">HERE</a>.<br/></div><br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

Well, what you don't know is that if it weren't for the writers strike, it probably never would have happened! Sommer says the idea for his Office visit first came up when he met producer/star Mindy Kaling last winter on the picket line. "Mindy is a big fan of Mad Men and she knew that I was a big fan of The Office," he explains, "so we mused about finding some way to get me over there." Sommer insists he's been "sworn to secrecy" about the specifics of his guest stint, although he does admit that he's playing a "very different character" from Harry Crane, the 1960s ad exec he portrays on Mad Men. "When you see it," he adds, "you'll understand why I can't say anything." And when you pick up this week's issue of EW and turn to page 54, you'll understand why I had to."</span><br/><br/>He also had this to say about the season premier:<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">"Based on what I'm hearing about the premiere, it's either going to go down as the funniest Office episode ever or NBC's most blatant piece of cross-promotion yet. Or some combination of both."</span><br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">I'm a little concerned about that last part... what does that mean? Is Michael Scott going to be making an appearance on "America's Got Talent" or something similar? Why am I suddenly feeling so nervous?<br/><br/><br/></div>]]></description>

Jan's pregnancy? Something to do with Holly? The mind boggles.  Sommer does a decent job on MAD MEN, although his role so far has been pretty minor.<br/><br/>For those who don't know, MAD MEN was one of last year's hot new shows. From one of the writers of THE
  4262. SOPRANOS, the series is about the life and loves of a group of advertising men (and
  4263. their families) circa 1960. I missed all of the hype when it was
  4264. actually airing, but AMC put all 13 episodes
  4265. "on demand" last weekend, and I got a chance for a little marathon. I
  4266. enjoyed it quite a bit. Not sure if I love it yet, but I'm definitely
  4267. "in like," and it's now a part of my weekly TV queue.

  4336. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">As if this whole Office spinoff mess wasn't convoluted enough... <br/><br/>At the TCA Awards this week, NBC honcho (and the guy behind bringing the OFFICE to the US) <a href="http://www.tvsquad.com/2008/07/21/poehler-will-not-be-in-an-office-spin-off-but-rashida-jones-may/">Ben Silverman told everyone</a> that the show created by Mike Schurr and Greg Daniels starring Amy Poehler that's going to air AFTER The Office and debut after the Superbowl, isn't, in fact, The Office spinoff show.  To top that off, because of Poehler's pregnancy and SNL commitments, the actual show ISN'T going to be debuting after the Superbowl anyway. <br/><br/>But, says Silverman, there *IS* an Office spinoff that exists... it's just not THIS show, and they have no idea when it's going to air or who it's going to star.  Here's the quote, from <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/07/21/AR2008072102806_3.html?nav=hcmodule">The Washington Post</a>:<br/><br/>"Well, fortunately for Amy and [her husband], she's pregnant right now. So the target was to have it be ready after the Super Bowl. . . . So the timing will be tough to be able to turn that show around to fit into the post-Super Bowl slot. It's much more likely we're going to have to launch that in March. What happened was ['The Office' show runners Greg Daniels and Mike Schur] came up with two ideas. One of which is totally a spinoff, which they're pursuing and [is] planted inside 'The Office' and maybe would involve characters who are already on 'The Office' who would then migrate to a new show. And then they developed a different parallel, which was kind of set stylistically and formed by 'The Office' but not characters based in 'The Office,' or storylines based in 'The Office.'<br/><br/>"And, as they pursued both, we decided to put all our energy to get Amy locked in, and she agreed, and then we started a negotiation with her and also focused on making sure that Mike and Greg's creative was something that she really was going to respond to. And that kind of took position A in what Greg and Mike were going to focus on right now. So that's kind of where the process went.<br/><br/>"We're still pursuing the spinoff, but when you get a talent like Amy Poehler at the top of her game coming off what easily could have been a decision to become a full-time movie star, this was a great chance for us to land her, and Mike and Greg and everybody at NBC think she's just the ideal talent to fill out what they're working on." <br/></div><br/>Seriously... could this whole thing get anymore complicated?<br/><br/>(thanks to Brettson for the link)<br/><br/>]]></description>

  4362. While both were in the listing of "Top 10 finalists" for their
  4363. respective supporting categories, neither was in the final list
  4364. (Fischer was nominated last year). And while we certainly appreciate
  4365. Rainn Wilson's work, I can't help but wonder if Wilson's over-the-top
  4366. character is a reason why he received a nomination over Krasinski's
  4367. more subdued performance.  The fact that Emmy voters officially cast
  4368. votes on a single episode from an entire season also penalizes actors

Apparently "Baby Mama" was enough of a success that negotiations began sometime in late June.<br/><br/><div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/photos/stylus/32967-poehler_amy_341x182.jpg"/><br/></div><br/>So much for Ausielo's "guaranteed" Amanda Peet prediction.<br/><br/>In any case, the deal is not yet officially confirmed, and both articles mention that Poehler's pregnancy (she is due this fall) could also affect or delay the production of the new series.<br/><br/>I still need some time to process this news, but my initial reaction is that Poehler is too "over the top" as a comedian to fit into an "Office"-like show.  Maybe it's having seen her mugging into the camera so often on SNL that's put this thought in my mind... I dunno.  As it stands, I am very glad that the "spinoff" seems to NOT be a spinoff after all-- I will be much more charitable towards a completely NEW show than if I am worrying about how this new show "tarnishes" the original (or not).<br/><br/>So what do you guys think? Great choice, or reason for concern? Can the fabric of the universe survive when both Poehler AND Fey have sitcoms on the same network on the same night? Will Poehler being hired also earn us some juicy Will "GOB" Arnett cameos? Only time will tell.<br/></div><br/><br/>EDIT:<br/><br/><div style="text-align: justify;">Talking to the AP about her SNL Emmy nomination, Poehler basically <a href="http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2008/07/17/ap5226666.html">confirmed</a> that her participation in the new show is a done deal (although she says she doesn't know what she'll be doing, exactly).<br/></div><br/>]]></description>

  4453. West in Hollywood in early June on the same night. One was Kate
  4454. Flannery's "Lampshades" show and the other was an improv show featuring
  4455. Angela, Oscar and Creed.  I had some credit with NWA which I had to use
  4456. soon. I also had enough credit card points for a free hotel stay. So I
  4457. thought "What the hell." I made my bookings and then sent both Angela
  4458. and Kate short MySpace messages telling them I was coming out. (Not
  4459. like we're "tight" or anything - but I had met both of them on a few
  4460. different occasions over the past couple of years). Kate sent me a
  4461. message back saying that some of them were going to be filming
  4462. "Celebrity Family Feud" on the day I was coming into town. She asked if
  4463. she should try to get me a ticket. Obviously, I said "Yes, please!" A
  4464. couple of days later she sent me all the info I needed. </span><br style="font-style: italic;"/>
  4465. <br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">
  4466. Since she had put my name on the list as her guest, I was sort of
  4467. treated like a rock star - well, at least for a couple of hours at a
  4468. game show taping, that is. I got to park my little rental car by the
  4469. limos, I was escorted into the bldg through the back stage door and was
  4470. shown where craft services was. It was pretty cool. The person taking
  4471. me in said "You're a guest of Kate's? Did you want to go to the
  4472. trailers?" I didn't want to push my luck, so I declined. I did happen
  4473. to see the Office-mates walk past, however, and Kate said that she was
  4474. happy I made it. </span><br style="font-style: italic;"/>
  4475. <br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">
  4476. Once I was seated, it was alot of fun actually. The announcer dude
  4477. warmed up the crowd, and it was pretty hilarious because he made us
  4478. "practice" our responses - all the "oooo's" & "ahhh's", clapping,
  4479. etc. It all just made me laugh!  I learned that The Office was going to
  4480. be playing the American Gladiators - and that made me laugh more! The
  4481. Office cast was all dressed very nicely - and the Gladiators came in
  4482. costume . . . stretchy, spandexy bulges. It felt wrong just looking at
  4483. them. :)  </span><br style="font-style: italic;"/>
  4484. <br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">
  4485. Al Roker was the celebrity host, and he did a really good job. It was
  4486. evident that he is a fan of The Office and he had a great rapport with
  4487. them - probably since he had met them in Scranton?   Anyway, I won't
  4488. spoil anything, but it was a good show. At one point, Kate was at the
  4489. podium and nearly didn't get her answer in time. I let out some kind of
  4490. noise - which I hope they edited out! ;) </span><br style="font-style: italic;"/>
  4491. <br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">
  4492. That night was the two shows at IO West. Even though I had seen the
  4493. Lampshades previously, it was still hilarious. I got to talk to Kate
  4494. for a little while afterwards, and she was nice enough to give me a CD
  4495. of the show. She didn't stay too long, though, because she had the TV
  4496. Land Awards and a breast cancer charity event the next day.  The
  4497. Armando (improv) show was also fun. Creed was the "host" and took the
  4498. opportunity to tell a few stories from "back in the day" involving
  4499. using illegal substances, etc. Just what you'd expect from Creed! Oscar
  4500. and Angela were part of the group of improvisors - and Angela
  4501. (especially) is alway so funny!  </span><br style="font-style: italic;"/>
  4502. <br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">
  4503. After the show, it was pretty late and loud and crowded. But Angela saw
  4504. me and came over and gave me a hug and thanked me for coming. She
  4505. apologized but said that she wouldn't be able to stay too long - which
  4506. I fully understood. She really wanted to get home to Isabel, and she
  4507. also had the TV Land Awards the next day. We chatted for just a few
  4508. minutes - mostly about the baby - and she told me that she would be
  4509. appearing in People magazine and how she had been apprehensive to do
  4510. so, but the folks at People were really great to work with."</span><br/><br/>Awesome story, Laura.  I think you just made a lot of people REALLY jealous, though... including yours truly.<br/><br/></div>]]></description>

  4520. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">To all of out American listeners-- a happy 4th of July to you all.  Please, try not to overdo it on the hot dogs and potato salad this year.<br/><br/>Just a few news tidbits that I'm sure most of you already know:<br/><br/>1) Amy Ryan is committed to reprise her outstanding role as Holly Flax in at least FIVE episodes next season.  Kevin and I both loved her work in the season finale, so I am very excited to see her coming back for more.  <br/><br/>2) According to Ricky Gervais' official blog, Steve Carell has signed on for another three year commitment to THE OFFICE with his new contract.  While his movie track record has been somewhat spotty, he definitely doesn't NEED to come back to working those fabled 12 hour days on a TV show if he didn't want to.  Hats off to Steve for sticking with the show.<br/><br/>3) The first new "webisode" of the Summer is set to launch on July 10th! Less than a week away.  TWSS will have full coverage of all the webisodes, so never fear (although I'm still not sure if we'll discuss them individually or wait until they're all finished...).<br/><br/>4) We're right back where we were in November 2007, as the <a href="http://news.google.com/news?q=actors+strike&sourceid=navclient-ff&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGGL,GGGL:2006-41,GGGL:en&um=1&hl=en&ncl=1223728454&resnum=1&cd=1&scoring=n">SCREEN ACTORS GUILD are in the middle of their own tense negotiations with the studios</a>.  The final contract has been proferred, but we won't know the results until July 8th.  I haven't been following this as closely as I should have, but we're literally on the edge of another major Hollywood work stoppage if a strike is called (the existing contract expired on June 30th).  Hollywood is walking on eggshells right now, as are many other cities that do a lot of location shooting (like Vancouver, for example).  Many seem to think the strike won't happen so soon after the WGA strike, but you never know.  Keep watching the news.<br/><br/>5) I'm looking at releasing the new TWSS Retro episode sometime in the next week (if Kevin and I can work something out).  Although we still have two episodes left from season one, I think we're going to just jump right ahead into "The Dundees."  If you'd like to leave an email comment for the show, giving your opinions on the episode, favorite parts, etc., get them to me ASAP at [email protected] If you'd like to leave an audio comment, feel free to use Kevin's hotline:<br/><br/><div style="text-align: center;">(206) 666-3728<br/></div><br/>This is technically the phone number for Kevin's Frat Pack Podcast, but never fear-- your comments will be forwarded to the right place.<br/><br/>6) Also, if you haven't done so, PLEASE consider pre-ordering your season four DVD sets from Amazon.com through our associates link (located to your right).  A small percentage of your purchase price will be kicked back to TWSS to help defray some of the costs of production.  If Amazon's price goes down in the coming months, you'll be charged the lowest price, regardless of where it is currently.  If you know you're going to order the set, please order from us.  You'll be doing TWSS a major solid, yo.<br/></div><br/><br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

  4560. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.variety.com/VR1117987409.html">Variety</a> posted an article yesterday about the first official actor to be hired for the yet-unnamed OFFICE spinoff-- Aziz Ansari.  Ansari, a veteran of the MTV sketch comedy show HUMAN GIANT, is described in the article as:<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">A rising star on the standup circuit, Ansari has earned raves, including best standup at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, for his irony-laced takes on life. Ansari's targets include everything from the singing ice cream scoopers at Coldstone Creamery to racism and homophobia.</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br/><div style="text-align: center;"><img src="http://a330.g.akamai.net/7/330/23382/20080613034429/www.variety.com/graphics/photos/_muga/ansari_aziz.jpg"/><br/></div><br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">In addition to serving as a writer, exec producer and performer on "Human Giant," Ansari also guested as a racist fruit vendor on HBO's "Flight of the Conchords" -- and recently opened for the Conchords on a series of concert dates.</span><br style="font-style: italic;"/><br style="font-style: italic;"/><span style="font-style: italic;">[The] Comedian, who's repped by 3 Arts and UTA, is currently in Albuquerque filming scenes for the upcoming Seth Rogen feature "Observe and Report." He'll also be seen alongside Paul Rudd and Jason Segel in "I Love You, Man."</span><br/><br/>Furthermore, the article goes on to say that Daniels and Schurr have yet to decide on a concept for the spinoff, although there are several in the running.  They have hired veteran writers from EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, SOUTH PARK, and LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN to join the scripting team, and are (in the words of Greg Daniels) "meeting with a lot of cool people... We're trying to see how the pieces all fit together."<br/><br/>Going along with the previous rumor, Rashida Jones's name popped up again in the article, as it mentions that a telent holding deal has been struck between her reps and NBC/Universal.  Whether she'll be appearing in the spinoff, THE OFFICE, or 'none of the above' is yet to be determined. As of now, the idea that any of the cast of the original show will be moving over to the new spinoff seems highly unlikely.<br/><br/>(so much for our Andy theory!)<br/><br/>On the homefront, the article also brings word that several new writers have been hired for the show including '"Freaks and Geeks" creator Paul Feig, "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "New Adventures of Old Christine" vet Aaron Shure and "Saturday Night Live" writer Charlie Grandy."' <br/><br/>Paul Lieberstein will also become an executive producer for season five.<br/></div><br/><br/><br/>]]></description>

  4581. was really impressed, but there were the wacky people. ... I remember
  4582. very specifically this woman with a goose, I think she was trying to be
  4583. Old Mother Hubbard, but she had a live goose and I couldn't stop
  4584. laughing. She was trying to have it do tricks and flap its wings. There

  4616. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">Listener Jasmine sent in this eye-witness report of Rainn Wilson's appearance at the University of California, <br/></div><br/><div style="text-align: justify;"><font><font size="2" face="Arial" color="#000000" id="role_document">I just thought I would let you know as a fan of both your show and The
  4617. Office, that <span id="lw_1212679321_0" class="yshortcuts" style="border-bottom: 1px dashed rgb(0, 102, 204); cursor: pointer;">Rainn Wilson</span> came to my university today (University of California,
  4618. Irvine) and gave a speech on his Baha'I believes and world peace. I will start
  4619. off by saying Mr. Wilson is much, much more handsome in real life but just as
  4620. antsy. He was intelligent (he has a MBA) and funny if not a little easily
  4621. distracted. We were not allowed to take pictures or get autographs, but Mr.
  4622. Wilson let everyone take a few at the beginning of his presentation. Several
  4623. office questions were asked, most of which sucked. <br/><br/>Here is the dirt he shared:
  4624. <br/><br/>1. The Office spin off series will feature no one from the original show (no one
  4625. who works in the office) <br/>2. He will not run with John Mc Cain because Baha'I
  4626. members cannot hold public office <br/>3. He personally invented the word
  4627. "youtubin" (people kept filming him even though he politely asked them to stop
  4628. several times. He was very nice about it). <br/><br/>The most interesting part of the
  4629. speech was the stuff on Baha'I, not the office questions, which consisted of him
  4630. repeating his acceptance speech and singing Ryan started the Fire (that part was
  4631. awesome). Overall, I would have enjoyed myself even if the event was not lead by
  4632. an actor on my favorite show, but it helped that he was there. I came for the
  4633. Rainn, stayed for the Baha'I. I asked him a question, which he said was good,
  4634. about growing up in his faith and he claims he has had to turn down a lot of
  4635. roles because they conflicted with his faith. Mr. Wilson was modest yet funny,
  4636. intelligent yet approachable. I almost forgot the best part, Mr. Wilson said the
  4637. only reason we came was so we could say "That's what she said" to him, and at
  4638. one point he said to just "Cram it all in there" to which the audience replied
  4639. "That's what she said!".</font></font><br/></div><br/><br/>Thanks, Jasmine! Sounds like a fun event.<br/>]]></description>

  4703. <description><![CDATA[<div style="text-align: justify;">I know many of us were impressed with Amy Ryan's turn as Holly Flax in the season finale.  The rapport and chemistry with Michael was one of the high points for me, and I was hoping for more of that next season.  Unfortunately, that might not be the case... at least according to TV Guide's <a href="http://www.tvguide.com/Ask-Matt/080523?imw=Y">Matt Roush</a>--<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">As for Amy Ryan: Last time I checked this week, there was no news yet about her returning to the show. But it's hard to imagine she won't appear at least once more — unless Holly was so put off by Michael's arousal and later rejection that her absence is explained later in exposition. I hope we get to see her again — but yeah, don't count on her for the spin-off. This actress's career is just taking off, and this Office role is likely something of a fun lark. </span><br/><br/></div><div style="text-align: justify;">That makes me incredibly sad, but then again, I won't start gnashing my teeth until we get some kind of confirmation from NBC.  I *DID* say that Toby could easily come back to the show after having found Costa Rica distasteful for some reason, so who knows.  All I can say is that I'll really miss her character... is it too soon to make my "Team Holly" shirt?

MY NAME IS EARL also returns on the 25th, and 30 ROCK once again rears its head on October 30th.<br/><br/>Joining the Thursday night comedy block on October 9th is the retooled Austrailian import <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kath_&_Kim">KATH & KIM</a>.  NBC describes the show thusly:<br/><br/><span style="font-style: italic;">For "Kath & Kim," they're the most dysfunctional duo in suburbia. Kath Day (Molly Shannon, NBC's "Saturday Night Live") is the mom, a foxy, 40-something divorcée who finally has time for herself and her valiant search for love. Kim Day (Selma Blair, "Hellboy," "Hellboy II") is the daughter, a self-absorbed princess recently separated from her husband who finds consolation in stuffing her face. When Kim decides to move back home, Kath reluctantly agrees -- but to Kim's chagrin, Kath is not about to cater to her every whim as she has in the past. Based on the most successful comedy in Australia of the same name, Kath and Kim are two brassy women who prefer the finer things in life like acrylic nails, big hair and faux diamond chips. The series is produced by Universal Media Studios and Reveille. The executive producer/writer is Michelle Nader ("The King of Queens") and the executive producer/director is Paul Feig ("Freaks and Geeks," "The Office"). Gina Riley, Jane Turner and Rick McKenna also are executive producers.</span><br/><br/>Only four months to go!<br/></div><br/><br/><br/><br/>]]></description>
