Kate Flannery on the J.J. Abrams Office episode

by Brett Love, posted Feb 22nd 2007 2:01PM
Kate FlanneryKate Flannery, who most of you will know as Meredith from The Office, has updated her TV Guide blog with some tidbits about the big J.J. Abrams directed episode, "Cocktails." There are a couple spoilers, so save it for tomorrow if you dodge that kind of stuff. The entry also includes some more trivia on last week's Whedon episode, "Business School." For instance, Rainn Wilson named the bat, and it was a live bat, Gary.

The thing I found interesting was her story of her past with Abrams. It seems that previous to her Office gig, Kate spent some time working as a waitress. Abrams would come in to write and ask how her acting was going. When the two met again on the set he remembered her, and was very excited for her success. Abrams catches a lot of crap for his role in the whole Lost deal, so it's worth pointing out the positive stories now and again too.

Lost lost its momentum by the start of season 2. Sad to see such a great show lose all steam.

Thank god for shows like Veronica Mars and The Office...

oh okay, now that you've explained it it still doesn't really make much sense. i guess i just haven't noticed all the bad press j.j.'s been getting - but i'm glad you feel he's being rightly called on it.
whatever.

Sorry Maxwell and Jake, I thought that would be understood. What I am referring to is the ongoing criticism of the show by fans and former fans. Not answering questions... ratings are sliding... filler episodes... etc. While he's not very involved in the show at this point, he is still called out in many of those instances. Rightly so I think, given that he is still technically one of the producers.
