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.

Golden Globes 2010: Best TV Comedy Series Odds

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 13th 2009 3:00PM
30 RockCould there be some new blood in the Best Comedy Series race at the Golden Globes this year? Could this be the year that '30 Rock' (pictured, right) is finally dethroned? A lot of strong comedy newcomers this year could make that happen. Expect to see some fresh faces when the Globe nominations are announced on Dec. 15.

The Front Runners: Besides '30 Rock,' which won last year, the class of 2009 nominees -- 'The Office,' 'Californication,' 'Entourage' and 'Weeds' -- all have the inside track on a return to the Globes ceremony this year.

Creed Bratton of 'The Office' on Best Creed Lines, Music and Sleeping Under a Tarp

by Ryan McKee, posted Dec 10th 2009 3:42PM
It's annoying when burnt-out hippies on the street say, "Life's been a long strange ride, man" -- but it's all too appropriate when Creed Bratton of 'The Office' says it.

Bratton went to college on a swimming scholarship, then chased his rock star dreams around Europe, hooking up with the folk group The Grass Roots in 1965. Wanting to act, he won small TV roles before a friend gave him stand-in work on 'The Bernie Mac Show,' where he met Ken Kwapis -- "a huge Grass Roots fan," according to Bratton -- who got him background work on 'The Office.' There, he convinced showrunner Greg Daniels to let him create "this character that was sort of addled and weird, who'd done a lot of drugs and stuff." And "Creed" was born.

Creed (the actor) gave us the lowdown on what makes Creed (the character) tick and what his most memorable lines are, as well as the closest he ever got to homelessness and where the name Creed actually came from.

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?

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."

Something about last night's Office felt very British-y - VIDEOS

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 18th 2008 1:03PM
Michael reacts poorly to his dateIt's been a number of years since I've seen the original version of The Office, but a certain scene from last night's episode of the American version immediately reminded me of Ricky Gervais' classic.

Remember that last night Pam, out of pity for Michael, set him up on a coffee date with her landlord, who she thinks is really nice. So when the landlord -- who Jay called "a stunningly plain woman" in his review of the episode -- showed up, Michael let out a disappointed groan. A huge feeling of déjà vu came over me, and I realized something: this was the same reaction David Brent had to his stunningly plain date on the British version. Now I just had to find out in which episode this happened.
