An interview with Greg reflecting on the last 100 episodes of the show

I like that he said this:

I think that part of it is trying to anticipate what people think we're gonna do and then try not to do that

I would love love love to see this:

We had a 100th episode party, and Dave Rogers, the senior editor, cut together an "100 Moments" montage (featuring one from) each episode

I hope it makes it into the DVD.

I think this:

Personally, I've always enjoyed pathetic things happening. What makes me laugh a lot of times is the distance between what somebody's hoping is going to happen and the pathetic reality. I find that particularly funny.

explains a lot about some of the episodes. But I like the character comedy he mentions.

Greg Daniels is...kind of a jackass. But if I had his job I'd probably want to do the same thing.

I thnk that's particularly funny also. When, you know, it's not happening to me.

So there was an article on writing for a comedy show in the LA Times. Ignore the stuff from the guy who writes for Two and a Half Men and just read the bits about Paul Lieberstein and Jen Celotta. Do they really believe stuff like this:

Many "Office" hours are devoted to projecting longer arcs or shaping the next 13 episodes or so -- but no further. "We don't want to box ourselves in by planning out the entire season," Celotta says.

That may explain why "The Office" rarely leaves its big, climactic moments for a finale -- this season, the show has featured no fewer than four high points that other series might have used as season-enders.

I don't think I like the sound of that.

Jun 1st 2009

Yeah, it's like in Season 2, the big climactic moment was Michael getting his gold medal for closing on his condo, way back in Office Olympics. In Season 3, the big climactic moment was Stanley finally getting his pretzel...nowhere close to the season finale.

In Season 3, the big climactic moment was Stanley finally getting his pretzel...nowhere close to the season finale.

And the big arc for S3 was Andy's trip to anger management.

Jun 1st 2009 edited

I'm sorry, but you're all wrong. Andy claiming that he would not fall into
a chocolate river and then almost perishing after falling into Lake Scranton
was the the major arc of S3. Study your Wonka subtext, people! You’ll need
it when analyzing Golden Ticket.

"Angela, it's pretty simple! Look at what I'm doing and go tell somebody it!”

I like it when the writers trip you up by not even having the biggest moment of the season finale being at the end of the show. For example, Dwight kissing Michael on the cheek was by far the biggest moment of Casino Night, because of gay.

Really? I thought it was Roy hiring Scrantonicity for the reception.

That was the highlight of the Scrantonicity arc.

So this is good. The AV Club has a regular feature called The Hater which is frequently hilarious. It was written by Amelie Gillette, who announced today she's leaving the AV Club, who say its to become a writer for Theoffice. So that's good news for Theoffice, cuz sheez fun-e. End of story.

That is very good news.
