Jim and Pam have their own wedding website

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 21st 2009 4:26PM
Pam Beesly and Jim HalpertMost wedding-related websites tend to be annoying. The website for the wedding of Pam and Jim ... well, it almost was. However, the quote from the "About Us" section of the site which states "Together, we're easily the seventh most interesting couple in Northeastern Pennsylvania paper sales" sold me on the concept.

This isn't the first time The Office has launched an Internet campaign. Who remembers Schrute Farms? This one seems similarly clever, although most of the sections give you a pop-up window that says "Coming Soon!" (hopefully it won't remain that way indefinitely).

Look in the Guest Book for comments from other characters (my favorite, of course, is from Michael Scott: "Pam, you are like a daughter to me, and Jim is like a son. I'm so proud that my son and daughter are to be wed!"). Apparently anybody can leave comments as well, so go for it. Try not to overwhelm the web servers.

The Office: Fun Run (season premiere)

by Jay Black, posted Sep 28th 2007 8:32AM
Ah, there they are, my imaginary friends!(S04E01) We had a lot of discussion last year about The Office's precarious balance of sitcom-type humor and soap-opera drama. There were times when the Pam/Jim/Karen/Roy love quadrangle threatened to overwhelm the show. Other times, Michael's increasingly cartoonish boss went so far off the reservation as to completely shake our suspension of disbelief.

If anything, tonight's episode proved while the sitcom elements are certainly important, it's the soap opera that gives us our unique connection to these characters. I don't know about you guys, but seeing Michael and Jan and Angela and Dwight and, most especially, Pam and Jim back on the small screen felt like slipping out for some coffee with my old friends.

Yes, I'm completely aware that this feeling might be the beginning stages of paranoid schizophrenia, but I don't care because The Office is back! On to the review...

The Office: Phyllis' Wedding

How nice to work there. Really. I mean, my office sucks but at least these guys are funny!(S03E15) Let's get the short review out of the way: this was an amazing episode.

Here's a shocking thing that a lot of TV executives seem to not be able to understand: when you get really talented writers and allow them to work with really talented actors, good things will happen. You don't really need to over think the equation. The Office consistently manages to dazzle us with little more than well written scripts executed by great actors. You don't need mythology or gimmicks... just talent.

All right, the fawning is making even me sick. On to the episode...

Kate Flannery previews tonight's Xmas episode of The Office

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 14th 2006 6:21PM

Kate FlanneryThere are a lot of celebrity blogs over at TV Guide. Most of them aren't updated on any kind of regular basis, but when they are, they're a treat for fans. Like this blog entry from Kate Flannery, who plays Meredith on The Office. She previews tonight's Christmas episode. I'm a sucker for all Christmas episodes of TV shows and The Office, so tonight should be a great show (it's a special one-hour show starting at 8.)

The blog entry is a little spoiler-ish, but it's not too bad. Just a quick sketch of what the episode is about. She does say that the episode was directed by Harold Ramis (Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, SCTV, etc) and involves Benihana and a waitress. She also talks a little about her boobs.

Also, I didn't even know that Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, Unaccompanied Minors) was a regular director on The Office. I guess I should pay more attention to the credits.

Jenna Fischer doesn't have an "I'm a star in public" voice yet

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 10th 2006 6:31PM

Jenna FischerAnother celebrity story from Paul Davidson in Los Angeles. Really, he should start a separate blog of just celebrity sightings and encounters. (Oh oh, I think I just gave him an idea - Paul, I get a percentage, OK?).

This time Davidson sits near Jenna Fischer of The Office and pretty much overhears the entire interview she did with a health and fitness magazine. Fischer hasn't been a star long enough to start using the "I'm a star in public voice," that low voice a celeb uses when they're in public so no one can hear what they're saying.

Among the little tidbits that he learned about Fischer: she wants the kinds of roles that Christina Applegate gets, she's a supportive wife to her husband (screenwriter James Gunn), she likes working with everyone on the show, and she likes water.

It always hurts me to write sentences like "she's a supportive wife to her husband" when talking about Fischer, because that just reminds me that I'll never have a chance with her.

The Office: The Convict

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Nov 30th 2006 10:04PM

(S03E09) After watching Michael Scott "transform" himself into "Prison Mike," I was so enthralled by it that I've decided to rent Scared Straight from Netflix. I remember watching that documentary back in the 70s when I was a teenager, and I thought it was so over the top that I remember laughing all the way through it. Of course, if I was sitting in that room with those convicts in Rahway, I might have gotten smacked around a bit. But the idea of "lifers" telling kids how to not be like them is just too much grist for the comedy mill.

The Office: Jim should go for it with Karen

by Michael Canfield, posted Oct 9th 2006 10:35AM
Rashina JonesJim put himself on the line with Pam last year. That didn't work out; he transferred from Scranton. (Who knew that the Stamford office would also be full of loonies? But that only makes it more credible that either branch might be the one forced to close.)

Kudos to the writers for finding a way to put off the number one killer of sitcoms -- the hooking-up of long-unconsummated lovers. Jim appears to be the guy in the office who can't get through the tedium of a day without a little sexual tension. Who can blame him, when the other choices are pushing paper products or team-building exercises gone wild?

Krasinski and Fischer discuss their Office relationship

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 3rd 2006 7:27PM
John Krasinski and Jenna FischerWonder where the chemistry between The Office's "storybook couple" (Jim and Pam, silly... who'd you think I was talking about, Dwight and Angela?) comes from, just read this interview John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer do with the AP's Frazier Moore. Even in print, the interplay between them suggests that the on-camera "work marriage" extends to their off-camera workplace as well.

Not that anything else is happening, of course; Fischer is married to horror movie director James Gunn. But it's great to see two co-stars who are supposed to be romantically involved on-screen like each other so much off-screen. Believe me, any fan of Gilmore Girls -- who employs Jenna's brother-in-law, Sean Gunn -- knows that no amount of acting can overcome tension between the actors playing a couple.

The Five: Worst TV dads

by Richard Keller, posted Jun 18th 2006 10:13AM

Bad dad Aaron EchollsNot all television dads are the epitome of fatherhood. There are plenty of dads out there in TV land who, frankly, would rather be somewhere else. So, in the fine tradition of opposing viewpoints, we present the five worst TV dads.

Aaron Echolls (Veronica Mars):  Sure, to the movie-watching public he was known as a class-A actor who was kind to his fans. But, to his family, he was known as an adulterer with a violent temper who beat on his son Logan. Oh, he also murdered Veronica Mars' best friend Lilly and the abusing boyfriend of his daughter Trina (Update: well, almost). On the bright side, he has a really nice head of hair for someone his age.

Why would anyone want to work at Dunder-Mifflin?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 16th 2006 10:01AM

The OfficeI cringe every time I watch The Office. I want to intervene into the lives of these people. Go right into their office, or at least e-mail them (if Michael isn't monitoring the e-mails they get) and implore them to leave that awful company at once. It seems to me that none of these people could possibly get paid a lot of money, so what makes them stay there? The wonderful atmosphere (ugh)? The fun coworkers (not really)? The great boss (ahem)? It's almost the ultimate example of the lame, tedious, soul-sucking office you hear so much about. I've worked in a couple of offices like that, and it was the worst time of my life. 

Michael is one thing. He gets paid well and seems to be on some blind corporate career track (though I think that even he would improve as a person if he left the company). But it's the other characters, like Jim and Pam, who I worry about. They should be working some place else before they wake up 5 years from now in the same crappy job.

Dwight, however...I don't know what could help him.

JimEveryone's waiting for the two contestants to come back, and after several hours realize that, oh my God, they've both been eliminated!

Martha calls the contestants and tells them to meet her at her Connecticut home. She explains that she got rid of both Ryan and Marcela. We're down to three. There are no more teams, and each contestant is on their own...
