Discuss all things Dwight.

Feb 20th 2006

In the wild there is no health care. In the wild its "Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run, a lion eats me, and I am dead." Well guess what! I'm not dead. I'm the lion. Your dead.

Feb 20th 2006

James, brilliant mention of "total permeation". You almost had me rolling with that one! :)

I heart Dwigt!

Feb 20th 2006

How did he even approach Angela? I would have loved to see how Dwight delivered that pick up line.

Let me describe the perfect date. I take her out to a nice dinner. She looks amazing. Some guy tries to hit on her. Now he wants to fight. So I grab him, I throw him into a jukebox. Then the other ninja's got a knife. He comes at me, we grapple, I turn his knife on him. Blood on the dance floor. She's scared now. I take her home, I'm holding her in my arms. I reach in for a kiss. I hear something in the leaves. I flip her around; she gets a poison arrow right in her back. she was in on it the whole time. But I knew.

DWIGHT SCHRUTE, is amazing. I wonder if he and The 40 Year Old Virgin's Andy Stitzer would make a nice pair.

Feb 21st 2006

Plain White Jim, that was the greatest scene ever deleted.

I laughed so hard and rewatched it so many times.

Feb 22nd 2006

God, I wish I'd thought of "Blood on the dance floor" for my username. That is also a terrific name for a song, so I'll have to create a band just to have that as our signature single.

Feb 22nd 2006

As James has reported on the NA front page, Dwight now has his own MySpace page!

Now where is Mr. Halpert?

Rainn Wilson's highschool yearbook is being sold on ebay:

Dwight Shrute

Chip,

Wow! Great find. Thanks for sharing.

Feb 28th 2006

Too funny. Thanks Chip!

Dwight's new blog entry is up..wish I was smart enough to post a link (what can I say? I'm old! I didn't even have an email address until COLLEGE). Not the one on MySpace-- the NBC one.

Mar 2nd 2006

Yeah, just for the record, I think that this blog is the first one to confirm that his cousin Mose is a Schrute...am I right in saying that?

Mar 2nd 2006

Dwight has the greatest scene ever in the episode tonight. Believe me. The opening sequence is the greatest.

Football!

Mar 8th 2006

I just saw episode 17 of Entourage on HBO. Dwight (Rainn) guest stars as a geek that runs a website. He conducts interviewers at ComicCon. Anyone else seen it?

My favorite Dwight deleted moment is when he's describing his favorite woman, and finally holds up a picuture of an anime girl, waits a beat, and then adds, "...she's also a survivor of monster rape."

Mar 18th 2006

Does anyone know why Dwight's myspace page vanished?

Mar 18th 2006

jim told him the internet causes hot dog fingers

Mar 18th 2006

Plain White Jim,

I've spoken to a couple of folks who run the Office fan groups, and no one seems to know anything about what happened to Dwight's MySpace page. It's a mystery, at this point.

Mar 18th 2006

I was in L.A. for spring break, and I stood in line for an hour to see Dwight on the Tonight Show but the audience filled up! It was so upsetting!! Has anyone posted a clip of it yet? I didn't get to see it on tv either.

Mar 19th 2006

Dwight is such an awesome character. I love everything about him from his birkenstocks with socks to his Michael Worship. I hope we get to meet Mose in Season 3. I crack up whenever he talks about him and the farm and beets.

To those who had asked about the disappearance of Dwight's MySpace page, Angela just posted this bulletin:

Hey guys, a lot of you have asked me what happened to Dwight K. Schrute's page. I spoke to him and he wanted me to pass this on to you all.

Dwight was a bit overwhelmed with all his new friends and the amount of work it takes to keep up a myspace page for someone so popular. You know he was salesman of the year! And the kind of attention that comes with an award like that is ridiculous. He loves you all! And thanks you all!! But he felt he needed to shut down his page to concentrate on sales. Very best of luck to you.

So, Angela explained the disappearance of Dwight's MySpace page, and that's all well and good. But what happened to Schrute-Space, his nbc.com blog? Nothing for the past two new episodes (including tonight's).

Apr 1st 2006

I think my new favorite Dwight moment is when he went to pay for those hideous subs and said "F!" when the guy announced they didn't make an 8 ft sub so he brought 8, one footers instead.

The talking head afterward where he explained why he didn't need to tip, was perfect too. I can't help but love that dweeb.

Apr 7th 2006

Dwight's newest blog entry is up at the nbc.com website. I've missed him.

I'm currently reading The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler. On page 179, there's a description of a character in a mystery written by another character:

"His detective was a cynical sugar-beet farmer who unearthed femurs and knucklebones almost every time he rototilled."

No mention if the character's last name is Schrute, but we have to wonder, given Dwight's propensity for solving mysteries in "Drug Testing"...

Revisiting the Season 1 episodes, I've noticed a very subtle but verifiable change in Dwight's character that I think is worth noting. Somewhere between Seasons 1 and 2, Dwight went from being a character who has occasional moments of self-consciousness, disappointment, uncertainty, vulnerability -- in other words, a character of intermittent pathos like Michael, Jim and Pam -- to being an almost impenetrable figure of comedic weirdness. I submit the shamed expression in "Diversity Day" after Michael insults his camerawork, a similar scene at the very beginning of "Basketball" after he holds up his gym bag and Michael dismisses him, and the way he averts his eyes on "No" after Jim asks him, in "Hot Girl," whether he reads GQ. Plus there is the excruciating debasement of the "I wanted your permission" conversation between Dwight and Michael in "Hot Girl." Compare this to the famous "clitoris conversation" in "Sexual Harrassment," where Dwight displays not a trace of embarrassment at his lack of familiarity with human biology. Granted, he was talking to Toby instead of Michael, but I think the change is still clear: Dwight's character had been retooled as a weirdo who almost never has access to self-reflection or -awareness, a weirdo who, unlike Michael, Jim or Pam, rarely if ever sees himself fleetingly through the eyes of us, the audience.

This is not to say that Dwight has not undergone character development in Season 2 -- "The Fire," "The Fight," "Dwight's Speech" and "Drug Testing" were all great Dwight episodes, and there is no one on the show by now that you could really call one- or two-dimensional -- but it's hard to feel bad for someone who never feels bad for himself, and Dwight has done precious little of that this season. One can't help but suspect this was a deliberate change introduced by the producers; after all, a good part of the audience for this show is nerds (and if you post on an Internet forum about a TV show, you're pretty much a nerd, at least for a few minutes a day), who would be bound to recognize some part of themselves in Dwight, and wouldn't want to be reminded of their own shortcomings and failures of confidence as human beings. Season 1 Dwight hits too close to home; Season 2 Dwight, soldiering on with oblivious conviction through a world of beet farms, bobbleheads, gojuru karate, and never showing your teeth, gives hope and self-esteem to the geeky and semi-geeky everywhere.

Jun 10th 2006

so, is Dwight's change into a caricature of a man a good thing, or a bad thing?

Jun 10th 2006

Personally, I think Dwight is the funniest character on the show. I've never really said to myself, "gee, there's no one like Dwight in the real world." He may be a bit of a caricature, but I tend to overlook that simply due to the fact that it's hilarious. On the other hand, when Michael goes overboard I can't help thinking to myself that, "how has that guy not been fired yet??" No real person would get away with that for so long.
