Isn't that what chaperons are for?

Good, then I don't have to read it.

Bingo.

And Toosie wins the page. Despite a strong showing from the HAMNARD contingent.

Paul Lieberstein signs 3-year deal to run The Office

Reading between the lines, sounds like 2 more years of The Office is a lock, with an option for a third.

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

(I like Lieberstein as a writer but I don't want the show to be drawn out and distorted into just another sitcom, which is where NBC seems destined to take it)

Are you speaking from three years ago?

Jun 12th 2011

While nothing like the excellence of earlier seasons, I still think it's better than the average show on TV. I'm not sure I can say that if it goes three more seasons.

Jun 12th 2011 edited

In the end, it doesn't really matter how long a show runs, because everyone will remember it differently. I watched all 10 seasons of Friends, but in my mind, it ended after Chandler & Monica got engaged. And that was in season six. So I remember little to nothing about the last 4 years (40%!) of the show. (Insert "Friends sucked!" joke here).

As far as The Office is concerned, when it's all over with, I doubt I will remember anything that happened after "Niagara".

That article mentions that Greg Daniels will be assisting Paul. He seemed more involved this year and it was a step up from the disaster that was S6. I'm hoping Daniels will be leaving Mike Schur to run Parks and Rec and exert a little more control over things back at The Office. Plus I'm not clear on what Mindy Kalings role is going to be next year. If she isn't writing then I'm hopeful things might improve.

I think there's a fairly consistent pattern of shows suffering when their creators disappear. Not always, but often -- I think it's not a coincidence that Buffy took a step back when Angel went on the air, and both shows basically went down the tubes when Whedon's third show, Firefly, hit the airwaves. There are probably many shows that operate cooperatively and can survive the departure of the presiding presence, but Whedon's shows weren't among them. A similar thing happened with Gilmore Girls, though that show was willfully torched by its creators on the way out the door. I think The Office proved to be one of those shows, as well. It already wasn't as good as it had been, but when Daniels & Schur began to invest time in Parks & Rec, The Office went into utter collapse. If P&R can run with Schur's input alone, TO might be able to make a minor comeback with Daniels steering the ship. I'm not hopeful, but it's possible.

I'll take DftF's cautious optimism and run with it myself.

I'm at this point now. Most of the last few seasons are a blur. I will see an episode description of a re-run and I can't remember a thing about it. I used to have the episode titles from S1-3 memorized.

Like DC said, this season was a slight step up from the past few seasons. I enjoy watching the episodes more than most of the rest of tv, it just isn't very memorable.

My feelings exactly. Office Tally is doing their Survivor-style ranking of the episodes and except for voting Christening last I have no ability to rank anything because none of the other ones stand out in any way. I guess Goodbye Michael would be first. Counseling would be way up there too, I watched the rerun this week, that was a really good episode.

I saw that. I guess I will be that one guy voting for "Threat Level Midnight" every week.

"Christening" justifiably got voted out first and the only other two I know I want gone are "Viewing Party" and "Andy's Play". The rest are sort of a blur up until the last few. I guess my top favorite might be "Goodbye Michael" or "Dwight K. Schrute"

Jun 13th 2011

"Dwight K. Schrute"

That was the name of an episode?

Jun 13th 2011

Actually, the full name was "Dwight K. Schrute, (Acting) Manager".

Jun 13th 2011

Episode titles used to have so much meaning for me. Few even register anymore.

Jun 14th 2011

Find the false title:

PDA
Happy Hour
The Twist
Old Boss

Jun 14th 2011

Only one is fake? I recognize PDA, but I couldn't tell you anything about the episode.

Jun 14th 2011

Actually two are fake.

Jun 14th 2011

I'm going to guess "The Twist" and "Old Boss".

Jun 14th 2011

Daoust is correct. But it is unknowable if he cheated.

I read through the titles for seasons 6 and 7, and with the exception of a couple, I didn't recognize any of them, much less being able to tell you what happened in each one.

Jun 14th 2011

I knew "The Twist" wasn't one, but I was going to guess "PDA" until I read Bri's post.

Jun 14th 2011

Someone should make a Season 2 quiz. Questions like:

  1. When Jim and Pam are making fun of Stanley's voice in Drug Testing, who else is in the room?
  2. What is the name of the lake from *Booze Cruise?
  3. What gift did Toby open in Yankee Swap?
  4. How much money does Michael offer for the sales prize in The Carpet?
  5. In which episode does Carol first appear?

4.How much money does Michael offer for the sales prize in The Carpet?

Actual or theoretical?

Jun 14th 2011

I wasn't aware there was a distinction...can you tell me what you mean?

Jun 14th 2011 edited

I'm guessing without looking at the posts above...

  • Stanley? (Was Meredith at the table?)
  • Wallempaupak
  • the baby poster? (or the Kelly nameplate?)
  • Initially it's $100. Then he only has like $87 on him, I think.
  • Office Olympics?

That was harder than it seemed. I was never good at these kinds of trivia questions.
