Yeah, I've already seen the outfits for Fashion Week as well. I'm sort of a spoiler freak, I can't seem to stop myself. I really think Michael has the most talent out of all of them-if he doesn't win, then what is the world coming to?

Sep 20th 2006

PurseGirl and Post-it Thief, agreed and agreed. Michael is my favorite by far. I was so disappointed last season when Chloe won; I was rooting for Santino. All I know is that if Michael doesn't win PR and Pam and Jim don't get together, this is going to be an awful month.

CZJ, I know! Anyone else going to watch Grey's Anatomy and ER tonight? I am not sure how much more tv I can handle tonight. I won't have time to let The Office sink in as I am jumping into Grey's and than into ER. I have a feeling I will be up late rewatching The Office and perhaps chatting here.

Sep 21st 2006

I haven't been able to get into "Grey's," and I don't know why. I know it's the Big Thing and lots of people watch it, but I tried to watch 2 eps. or so and it just didn't grab me. I don't need another TV obssession right now, though, so I'm not going to try again. I do watch "CSI," though, and that's on tonight, too, so I'll have a full night as well :-)

I saw alot of you said you like PTI. It is defintely one of my favorite shows. Tony Kornheiser has inspired me to want to be a sportswriter.

I'm watching season 3 of "Arrested Development" on DVD, and guess who appears in several episodes? Yes, ladies and gentelmen, Scott Baio. He plays an attorney. Chachi is alive and well. And still cute in a hippie-little-boy kind of way.

I wonder why so many "Happy Days" alum (Henry Winkler, Scott Baio...and Ron Howard narrates and, I think, is an exec. producer)? And who would have thought that "Happy Days" could be so heavily entrenched in a such a critically-heralded show as "Arrested Development"?

For the romantics on this forum...

Does anyone watch Monarch of the Glen? Its a BBC series set in Scotland. It's very light hearted and up beat. It's funny with likeable characters. The main character is a nice-guy who is reluctant to speak his mind. (Remind you of someone?) I recently tried it on Netflix and I'm hooked.

Sep 27th 2006 edited

Kely, I love Monarch of the Glen! My family and I would watch it every Sunday night. Good to know it's on Netflix. Archie held my heart before Jim replaced him.

Sep 27th 2006

I've been trying to find someone who watches MOTG! I had been planning to buy The Office Season 2 all summer, but I bought Series 2 & 3 of Monarch instead. Am I going to get kicked off the forum? ;)

Sep 27th 2006

Well, I'll forgive you. I'm not so sure about the others, though.

Sep 27th 2006

Scott Baio's character on Arrested Development is my favoritest. Yes, I know that's not a word. I absolutely cannot keep it together when he says, "Bob Loblaw's Law Blog."

Oct 2nd 2006

I'm watching Studio 60 right now and guess who's on? Lucy Davis! ( Dawn from BBC's The Office.) She plays a writer or something. It was in the "Science Schmience" scene.

Oct 2nd 2006

Is that Lucy Davis there with an appearance on Studio 60?

Oct 2nd 2006

Damn... beat me to it by less than a minute, PurseGirl!

Oct 2nd 2006

I’ve just started watching “Freaks & Geeks”, long overdue, I know.
I’m only a few episodes in, but I am noticing a few ties to The Office:

  1. Allison Jones is the casting director for both shows. (And she did a great job on both counts).
  2. Paul Feig, the creator of “F&G”, also directed “Office Olympics”, “Halloween”, “Performance Review”, and “E-mail Surveillance”.
  3. In episode 4 of “F&G”, Rashida Jones guest stars, and her character’s name is Karen, nonetheless. (Side note: do we know for sure that she will be a Karen on “The Office”? She also played a Karen on the pilot for “Stella”.)
  4. Ken Kwapis has been executive producer on a few episodes of each show.

Anyway, pretty fun stuff.

Oct 3rd 2006

Surprising no one more than myself, I willingly watched an episode of "Battlestar Galactica" the other day (the "our story up to this point" episode). I think I will be tuning in this fall to watch Season 3. Go figure.

Also, I just have to say that I am really liking "The Amazing Race" even more this season. I love that the Coalminer and Wife couple from Kentucky have, against all odds, become fast friends with...the gay couple (Tom and Terry, I think), the Asian brothers (forgot their names) and the single black mothers (forgot their names, too). If any of these teams win, it will be a good thing. When Mary was offering support to the guys who had to stand to the side of the check-in because of a penalty (she said something about her ankle, how she needed help walking, that they'd be joining them soon, etc.), I loved it. I have had people offer me that sort of unwavering encouragement before, and it makes such a difference all around. You can tell she has a good heart.

what the frak, teapot? what next, a star wars convention? let me know if you need tix, btw. stanley thinks he's got toaster trouble, a whole race of diabolocal blood thirsty seven foot toasters that want to hunt down and kill every last human now thats a bad toaster story. edward james olmos as the captain is wisdom incarnate.

and as for the amazing race we are now clearly in their traditional "look how they have grown" phase with the kentucky couple. though i thought early on that he was going to be a little bit of a jerk, that didnt turn out to be the case. mary giving the single moms their extra barrel of water the week before was another nice gesture. i'm back to hoping they stay in it and win, though i am expecting at least a couple more cringe moments.

stella, i was watching freaks and geeks when it was on. i agree that the show and the casting were both fantastic. i had no idea there were all those connections.

bad toaster story

hee hee – That reminds me of the animated "Brave Little Toaster." I loved that. Which reminds me of a deleted scene I watched last night from The Fire, where Toby's listing his top 5 movies (great list, btw); one of which is Toy Story II. Gotta love a man with an animated feature in his top 5.

What was I going to say? Oh yeah.

I think The Office has spoiled me. I only have 5 current shows on my "must see" list. (there are 3 more currently on hiatus, but still...) I used to watch much more tv but the show has so raised the bar that I'm much pickier. Either that or I'm just less patient with so-so stuff.

what the frak, teapot? what next, a star wars convention?

I know! All other aspects of my personality and my life indicate that I should fit the mold of the stereotypical sci-fi geek, so maybe it's just that I've finally decided to embrace my inner geek and just go where it takes me instead of trying to fight it. I mean, I was in the band in high school. And it didn't seem totally far-fetched to me when Anthony Michael Hall and that other guy made a real-life woman on the computer in Weird Science. Maybe I've been a sci-fi gal all along and just didn't know it...

I was in the band in high school

me=flute. College too. Unashamed. You, LT?

Oct 3rd 2006

me=flute. College too. Unashamed. You, LT?

Clarinet, mostly. But first, before I had enough money to rent the instrument I wanted (this is a pretty telling story, since to rent a band instrument only cost $10 a year) I played the French horn. It was bigger than I was...I mean way bigger. I wish I had pictures of what I looked like carrying it to and from the bus stop; the case was so big, I had to lean to one side so that it wouldn't drag on the ground. Funny now, but not so amusing at the time, and I'm sure the embarassment I suffered was the root of some of the issues I carry with me as an adult. I plan on using that story sometime in the future when my kids want something I'm not going to buy them ("You think you have it bad because I won't buy you the new Dora dollhouse? Well, when I was younger we were so poor I had to play the French horn...").

By the way, garbagethrower, I thought the flute players were the coolest chics. So light and airy and delicate...and their instruments fit into tiny little cases...

Oct 3rd 2006

Great story, LT; one I'm sure your kids will have memorized very soon.

I used to twirl mine like a baton. Yep, I was awesomely cool. Piccolo was way fun; for such a tiny instrument it can effectively blast the eardrum of any offending drummer from 20 paces. Ah, those were the days.

Oct 3rd 2006

So this one time, at band camp...

Sorry, but I had to toss that in there.

So I'm working my way through Arrested Development on NetFlix, and I have to say I like it but I don't love it. Not sure why, though. Maybe love will come later, like an arranged marriage.

In the meantime, Studio 60 and Heroes are my new favorite shows not named The Office. All I need is The Loop to come back in January and my TV life will be all set.

Wow, what a random post.

Oct 3rd 2006 edited

While we are confessing, I was on the Drill Team. We were the companion flag twirlers to the band (bad ones, at that). I am only like 5'2 on a good day, so those flag poles were about as tall as I was. I did attend band camp every summer though. It really was fun, though not as risque as Hollywood has made it out to be. :) I went to Catholic school, after all!

GT, The Brave Little Toaster was on Monday(Disney Channel).

Okay, back to the thread topic. I am with you in that I have pared down my tv list this year. I'll become a tv zombie if I invest any more precious time on new shows.

Well, Hollywood makes Catholic School sound really fun and risque, so...maybe we should ask Stanley's daughter. Apparently there's lots of latte-drinking going on, but that's all I know.

Oct 3rd 2006

I was pre-latte and post-habit-wearing-nuns-checking-skirt lengths-with-rulers (whew!). Our principal was a nun and closet drinker according to legend. Her name was Sister John Norton. We called her Sister Jack Daniels. Never could figure out why she chose John as her nun name. I digress...

Oct 3rd 2006

We called her Sister Jack Daniels

hahaha....(minutes pass)...hahaha

Oct 3rd 2006

Original poster, you win desert island. Those are like all my favorite TV shows. The Colbert Report, Strangers with Candy, The Daily Show, Arrested Development, Stella, and a bunch of minor ones.

Oct 3rd 2006

Is anyone out there a fan of both The Office and Gilmore Girls? I've mentioned the other show on fansites of each show, and both time haven't gotten much response. I recognize that they're kind of different, Gilmore Girls being more outright talkative than The Office. But they're both good shows with lots of comedy. I must admit that Gilmore Girls had a horrible 6th season, but it used to be among the best on TV for me. Just wondering if I'm alone.....
