Pam's Breast Pump on 'The Office'Well, you have to go back to work sometime. Especially when you're a cast member on 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC). Pam (Jenna Fischer) returns to Dunder Mifflin after being away on maternity leave. But as soon as she gets back to work, trouble ensues. Her breast pump is suddenly missing. If past experience of 'The Office' is any guide, then this problem will be resolved in the most awkward way possible.

Watch the video after the jump.

One Man Does a Duet of TV's Greatest Themes

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 17th 2010 7:15PM
One man bands have always creeped me out. They never brought joy or happiness to my life. Even as a very, very small (in height, not width) child, they always looked like steampunk jukeboxes trapped inside some kind of twisted mechanical music machine that mocked their every step with annoying oompah-pah tunes.

One man, or rather two of him, have changed my perception on that phobia forever. Musician Fredrik Larsson has put together a beautiful rendition of TVs greatest tunes using nothing but a keyboard, an acoustic guitar and a DNA perfect clone of himself.

Trust me when I tell you this: the 'Charles in Charge' theme never sounded this, well, listenable.

What to Watch: March 1 - 7

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 1st 2010 2:02AM

The Academy Awards - Sunday March 7, 8 pm, CTV/ABC

Most years, there are five best picture nominees and I've usually seen one or none of them. This is due in part to the fact that the noms are usually released in theatres about five minutes before the ceremony, and the fact that I'm a lazy bum who never goes to theatres. But this year there are ten nominees in this category. Guess what? I've seen one of them. Go 'Inglourious Basterds'! As far as I know, you are totally the best picture!

'Outsourced' the Movie, Not the TV Show Coming Soon

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 3rd 2010 9:00AM
'Outsourced,' one of what seems to be many Indian-infused situation comedies inspired by the wild success of 'Slumdog Millionaire,' actually came to a theater near you long before NBC picked up the pilot.

The movie as well as the TV show is based on an American who finds himself running a customer service department for a novelty company. The trailer included below actually gave me a couple of good chuckles and some hope that NBC isn't picking up its one-millionth 'The Office' clone.

Job Advice for TV's Workers - and You

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jan 13th 2010 9:00AM

I have so many friends who seem stuck in jobs that are going nowhere. Maybe it's my age - which you can't expect me to confess. Suffice to say, my friends and I are of that age where most summer weekends are spent at weddings, and conversations are increasingly interrupted by the mewling of babies in the background. It's an age where your priorities shift away from painting the town red towards buying paint for the kids' room. And it's an age where you start to wonder if you'll always have a job, or if you'll ever get a career.

Sometimes it's hard to see the truth of what's going on in your own life, and easier to judge the lives of others. Like the fictional others of television shows. If you find yourself relating especially closely to any of the following, it might be time to spruce up your resume.

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 13th 2009 3:00PM

The Jay Leno Show: Jenna Fischer

The Jay Leno Show
I had a really hard time finding an image to include with this article. I went through every newspaper article that had "The Jay Leno Show" in the body of its text. I did searches on Google Images until Google got sick of me clogging their bandwidth. Even my editor Jane Boursaw couldn't use her super press connection powers to find one stinking shot of Jay blowing his nose in between sets from Friday's show.

Perhaps that's because Friday's late night appetizer on NBC wasn't really all that eventful. Don't take that to mean that it was totally dull, drab or boring, just a typical show for Jay and company.

And given some of the past episodes that sucked out loud, there's nothing wrong with being typical. Compared to the Pee Wee Herman debacle, it's a Devil's Tower sized step up.

What to Watch This Week: September 14-21

by Stephanie Earp, posted Sep 14th 2009 4:45PM

This Thursday, 'The Office' is back with season 6. (8 PM ET, Global/NBC)

Last season was a bit of mixed bag - with the Jim and Pam romance resolved, the show was forced to look elsewhere for longer plot arcs. The Dwight-Angela-Andy love triangle was good for a few awkward laughs, but didn't offer the same vicarious thrill. Can season 6 bring the show back on track?

An operatic version of The Office hitting the U.K. stage

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 16th 2009 2:11PM
Ricky Gervais' The Office is being adapted into a stage opera.An idea that was a joke just a few months ago will soon be a reality in London.

The Office: The Opera will hit the stage for a one-night only engagement at London's Proud Galleries Wednesday, August 19. The concept of an operatic version of the Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant classic was used as a spoof for the pair's contribution to this year's U.K. Comic Relief.

In the sketch, Gervais is such an ego-maniacal weed that he wouldn't allow the then-fictional opera to proceed unless a male model portrayed his old role of David Brent. But, Gervais is actually very charity-friendly, so I imagine this was an easy call for he and Merchant.

Gervais looking to give up acting for directing

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 4th 2009 12:29PM
Ricky Gervais might be moving on from acting.The Office and Extras star Ricky Gervais might be looking to give up acting to focus more on writing and directing.

As talented and naturally funny as Gervais is, it could be said that he never really took up acting in the first place. While relaxed on camera, he's essentially played himself (or enhanced aspects of himself) in most TV shows or movies he's appeared in so far -- including his starring role in Ghost Town last year.

According to The Daily Star, Gervais is so in love with directing that he'd rather invest his time there, rather than take on more lead or supporting roles (as in the Night at the Museum series).

The Office's Ricky Gervais defends his Invention of Lying

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jul 1st 2009 9:03AM
Rickey Gervais is asking critics to lay off The Invention of Lying.The creator of the world's most popular sitcom franchise, The Office, should be beyond the reach of critics anywhere. But, Ricky Gervais is preemptively telling reviewers to lay off his new movie, The Invention of Lying.

The comedy Gervais co-wrote and directed with Matthew Robinson explores a world where no one has ever lied until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain.

Gervais doesn't want critics to expect too much. On his blog, he wrote, "Dear critics (everyone), when judging the film, please remember that it is a high concept, PG-13 romantic comedy. It's not Schindler's List or The Godfather."
