Could this week's episode with the return of Karen be the seeds of a rumored spin-off (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31957&page=26)?

NBC Developing The Office Spin-Off
Source: TV Guide (http://community.tvguide.com/blog/TVGuide-Editors-Blog/Ausiello-Report/700000049)
October 30, 2007


TV Guide (http://community.tvguide.com/blog/TVGuide-Editors-Blog/Ausiello-Report/700000049) reports that NBC (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=38911#) is developing an episode of comedy "The Office" that would introduce several new characters who would then be spun off into a new series.

The proposed "Office 2" is not expected to include any of the mother ship's core cast, as producers are already casting about for a "name" to headline the potential show.

Tonight was a good episode. Seeing a conclusion to the Jim/Karen relationship was both hilarious and probably one of the most awkward moments on the show so far, especially their parting words to each other. :p

Dwight's handlebar mustache disguise was great. "WE WILL BURN UTICA TO THE GROUND!!!"

Oscar's "Besides having sex with other men, I'd say the Finer Things Club is the gayest thing about me." had me rolling. :D Andy trying to get into the club was funny, as was the meeting discussing "Angela's Ashes".

All good points. I was nearly squirming in my chair when Karen walked over to the car. Jim really should have just stood up and told her some honest truth. He can be kind of a wussy sometimes.

And seriously, when Dwight said, "I think I cut my penis on the lid!" I almost in tears. Their whole subplot was hysterical.

and Oscar's comment was also great. Their club was nifty and when Phyllis took forever to use the microwave, I couldn't stop laughing. GREAT episode tonight, quite possibly one of my favorite episodes ever. :thumbsup:

I was happy to see Stanley wasn't leaving. What was the ad?

WANTED
Sassy black man
Big butt
Even bigger heart

I can't believe Dwight had made bombs. WTF was he thinking? The handlebar was awesome.

Also cant believe he threw Jims phone out the window.

The peeing in the can was pretty bad.

Im suprised Ryan wasnt called about the industrial coppier. I was hoping for some disciplinary action.

I wasnt aware Karen was a regional manager, or even that she was still with D.M.

It was a good episode, although it seems that most of them have not even taken place in the office lately. I miss that.

Oh, and the Bueller dummy was rediculous. "How is sleeping at your desk any better than you not actually being here?"

I thought this episode was pretty bad, compared to most Office episode (but a bad Office episode is still better than 95% of all other shows).
The whole mission with disguises was too far out there even for Michale and Dwight.
And Dwight wanting to literally bomb the building? Retarded and way out of character (even for Dwight).

Carell Ducks 'The Office' for Strikers
Nov. 7, 2007, 2:34 PM EST

The Associated Press
NEW YORK -- Filming has stopped on the popular NBC sitcom "The Office" because star Steve Carell (http://entertainment.msn.com/celebs/celeb.aspx?c=272476) has refused to cross the picket lines of striking writers, a producer said Wednesday.
Greg Daniels, executive producer of the show, says the last new episode of the show will air next week. It is among at least eight prime-time shows to stop shooting as of Wednesday because of the strike.
A publicist for Carell did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.

I enjoyed this episode. I liked the transition Jim had when he got a bit of power. It was nice and different to see Jim behaving like a complete *** for once, overstepping that line of sarcastic and schmuck. I had to laugh when Phyllis called him Michael; that was great! That end scene between Jim and michael was funny stuff. Jim realizing that michael has a bit more to him and his style. And the discussion on "that's what she said" was good.

And michael in the wild was good stuff, especially with Dwight following him around and how funny was it when Dwight poached those eggs and was cooking them?!?!!

"Tell her it's for Creed, she'll know what it means." lol

I also thought Dwight's hidden weapons were HYSTERICAL. "Mr. A Knife." Oh man, i couldn't stop laughing. Solid episode! :thumbsup:

General_Grievous
11-09-2007, 05:07 PM
I liked last night's episode, but not so much "Michael's Adventures in the Forest", which I thought was worse than his antics at Phyllis's Wedding. Luckily, Dwight was there with some funny material, like cooking the bird eggs. :p I also liked their conversation in the car. "I wouldn't leave you for dead. I would remove your teeth and your fingertips so they can't trace any DNA." "Wow, you are as creepy as a real serial killer."

I loved the "Birthday Month" storyline though. That sort of saved the episode for me. I nearly wet myself when Creed was furious over his peach cobbler. Andy requesting a Fudgie the Whale cake was funny, too. And for some reason, I thought Kevin beating Dwight with a blow-up doll was hysterical. :D

Not the greatest episode this season, but I was still satisfied.

I kind of saw Jim's dealie there as him intentionally trying to help Michael out by making everyone realize how much they actually enjoy some of the crap he pulls in the office. Maybe I was reading more into that, but it totally seemed like he knew what he was doing from the start and was purposely trying to rile everyone up.

Decent episode tonight, but it's sad to know that it's the last one for a while. :(

The ping-pong subplot was funny. It had some great moments, like the Pam-Kelly hostility and Dwight's deadpan "He works here, dumbass." :D But the best was Pam and Kelly's "ping-pong match". :p

Even though I laughed at the "That's what she said" joke tonight, do they really need to have one every week? I mean, there is too much of a good thing. Maybe they were getting it out of their system before the strike.

But one thing that isn't funny anymore is Michael's constant mistreatment of Toby. Michael smacking his tray off the table was uncalled for. I'm glad Toby is getting a copy of that diary. He deserves some vengeance. :evil:

Damn writers' strike. I hope it gets resolved soon.

I did enjoy Kelly trash talkin' to Pam and I was hoping to see more of their horrible match, but I did like how Jim and Daryl just didn't care. I did like Dwight beating up on jim though.

and I think the "that's what she said joke" was only said the last two episodes as I don't remember it much before. I didn't mind it though cos that's michael scott.

and I agree: Michael knocking that tray off was uncalled for and I did LOVE it when Toby was giggling at him during the conference. That was sweet revenge!! :thumbsup:

and how great was it at the end with Mose and Dwight playing ping pong?!?! :thumbsup:

Pretty bleak way to end the season (hopefully not) though: michael and Jan on the rocks. Didn't expect that.

Overall, I'd have to say this was a very weak and rather pointless episode.

To me, it is really disappointing at how bad this season has been in comparison to the three previous seasons. With regards to the writer's strike and The Office, I think it is going to be a wonderful thing. I can live without these very sub-par episodes for a while as long as when they return, they return to the quality that once was. So to me, I think this show can benefit from an extended break so the show has time to right the many wrongs and possibly save the remainder of the season, or start the next season out good and just scrap this one all together. If what has aired thus far were to be released on DVD, I would definitely pass on buying it; without a doubt!

I don't know guys. I consider(ed) myself to be a very big The Office fan but it is extremely upsetting and disappointing at how poor this season has been thus far. It hurts me to even write these words but I believe them to be nothing but the truth. :sad:

I don't know if I can stomach the re-watching of any of the garbage that composed Season 4. Granted, I did think one or two episodes were slightly better than mediocre, but overall, the season was pretty awful. The Office was by far my favorite comedy on tv before season 4 started but the show took a serious dip in quality and hilarity, much to my, and countless others', disappointment. Even though I am/was a huge Office fan, like many of you know, I can't ignore how bad what aired of Season 4 was. I just hope that when the show returns, it returns to it's old form. Over Christmas break (for the Holiday Challenge) I watched a couple of the Office Christmas episodes (Seasons 2 and 3) and the shows comedy was effortless. Now they are trying too hard, and are not succeeding for the most part; I don't think the hour long episodes helped either. Like I said before, I think this strike will be a wonderful thing for the Office this year, a blessing in disguise...

And yes, it still pains me to write these negative words about a show that I loved so much in the past. I will say optimistic and hope that when the show returns it will be better than ever!

I heard about this earlier today as well. I wonder if the spin-off will be about Ryan? This is the most logical choice that I can come up with, considering his role on the show now, and the fact that B.J. Novak is a producer/writer and actor (obviously) for The Office. Either way, it will be interesting to see who it is...

I thought tonights episode was pretty good, better than most of what aired as of late ;) Sorry Cae, don't hate. But I enjoyed tonights episode, for the most part, even if it was awkward as f***!

Speaking of which, while watching tonights show the word that was constantly coming to mind was "awkward".

Jan seemed completely out of character... But I know people change when they host parties, get-togethers or have people over, which I'm assuming what was going on with her tonight. Michael wasn't nearly as bad.

I love how Michael likely duped Jim and Pam into having dinner with them.

Andy and Angela joining was something else. It is obvious Angela is not at all into Andy, while he is making a serious effort. The ice cream bit was hilarious.

Dwight. lol I love the food and wine glasses he brought (massive wine glass!)

Jan informing Pam that she dated Michael was hilarious.

And the fake call with Jims place flooding was great too.

Michaels "plasma" screen was something else. And Jan making him sleep at the foot of his bed was something else as well. Candles? Never would have expected that. And she obviously has taken over most of those rooms. Michael is such a pansy.

Anyways, while I found a lot of this episode to be far fetched (mainly the stuff between Jan and Michael, Jan predominantly), it was still pretty funny. It feels good to finally be able to pick several parts of an Office episode that were hilarious, again, as opposed to only a few, or none. Again, don't hate.

I couldn't help but laugh my arse off at Pam and Jim's faces when they saw the videocamera in the bedroom. :thumbsup:

I thought this was a pretty solid episode and despite being awkward, this doesn't nearly take the Awkward Cake that is still awarded to Phyillis' Wedding.

I just don't know if I like how they've made Jan incredibly crazy this season. To me, it almost doesn't mesh well from what we saw of her in seasons 2 and 3.

And michael's plasma TV was really funny. "I just stand here for hours and watch TV." Jim's flood call was also great.

Good to have the show back. Hopefully we get to, ya know, the actual OFFICE next week though. :thumbsup:

I remember some things about Jan, but they all seemed minor in comparison to how she was acting last night; more psycho than awkward, after thinking about it some more. Sure, we know she is a bit odd, but last night's episode brought everything to an entirely new level. Thats how I perceived it anyways.

Are you kidding?! Kevin is one of my favorite of the background characters! Maybe it's because he reminds me so much of my cousin Christopher and his characterization hits a little closer to home for me.

I thought last night's episode was okay, but I enjoyed the Kevin/Andy plotline much more than Michael's. I didn't find Michael's shallowness to be all that funny this time around. He just seemed like a creepy stalker while talking about the chair model. But I loved Kevin and Andy calling together "the five families". :D

Overall, I thought this episode was pretty solid.

- I enjoyed Andy and Kevin and the Godfather style meeting of the five families. I also didn't expect the more dramatic part with Kevin talking briefly about Stacey and how it was "good to win one." That caught me off guard as it was touching and sweet.

- Jim and Pam were also great. Question though: why in the hell does Jim just carry around an engagement ring with him? Seems kinda odd. And like everybody else, I was also pretty much on the edge of my seat and i thought it was great how Jim was messin' with her. I do hope he waits a bit to propose though.

- Michael was pretty funny tonight too, but i thought it was just silly how him and Dwight went to visit that girls grave. That was just goofy. Probably my only complaint about the episode actually.

Overall though, I enjoyed the episode. :thumbsup:

Last night's episode was great. It's the first episode I really enjoyed since it returned. As soon as Ryan looked so happy to see Michael and Dwight at the club, I instantly thought, "he's a cokehead". Surprise, surprise, huh? I was rolling when Dwight was calling Ryan's friend a hobbit, though. And more power to him for hooking up with that basketball player. I have to say, as strange of a guy as Toby is, I probably would have jumped the fence too after pulling that stunt. :D

Quote of the episode? Pam: There is a spare key, and a master key for the office. Dwight has them both. When I asked 'What if you die, Dwight, how will we get into the office?', he said 'If I'm dead, you guys have been dead for weeks'.

Man, that sequence with Toby was just hysterical. I don't know if he was making up the talks about Costa Rica or where ever, but perhaps this is a possibility of the spin off? Could be interesting. I like Toby.

Ah, man Toby jumping the fence like that was GREAT. The look on everybody's faces was really funny.

and I couldn't stop laughing at that quote from Dwight. It's so glorious and Dwight-esque.

Rebo- I don't know if I buy that. I think they might be trying to throw us off, or perhaps this will lead into the spinoff that is planned? Maybe Ryan gets fired or demoted back to Scranton due to this drug problem and Toby takes his place and that sets up the spinoff? I did read on NBC.COM that the episode was called "Goodbye, Toby" but perhaps somebody just says that to him? It just seems too obvious. Either way, I hope he doesn't leave as he always cracks me up.

I gotta say I have mixed feelings about the finale last night.

Enjoyed:
- The antics between Jim and Pam, playing with Dwight and whatnot.
- Seeing Ryan get arrested on youtube, which was GREAT.
- Michael flirting with the new HR rep
- Kevin being "Special"- this was seriously, in my opinion, the funniest portion (s) of the show last night. I could not stop laughing
- Phyllis was also great, including where she knocked some of Angela's stuff on the floor
- Creed!

Didn't enjoy:
- Andy proposing to Angela?- Really? Why? They've only been together for a few months and Angela accepting pretty much goes against everything we know about her as a character. It just didn't make sense and felt REALLY REALLY forced
- So, Toby is leaving why exactly? If he's leaving just because he grabbed Pam's knee, that's pretty weak. We literally got no reason as to why he was moving or anything like that.
- Michael. Seriously, Scott is just becoming annoying with his stupidity. So, he's going to help Jan raise a baby that she was inseminated with while they were together? That's really such a bad move on his part and it seriously makes him look like an a--. It was obvious that the new HR rep could possibly have a thing for him and he just ruined it by going back to the same psycho that he left a few episodes back. Again, it just felt really forced and out of place.

And there you have it. :whip:

I would have most certainly agreed with most of this statement before the writer's strike/break, but I think the show has improved significantly since its return. Not as good as the first few seasons, but a major improvement over the dreck that aired before the break.


I agree with JMG as well. Not sure about the Andy/Angela proposal. Although I knew he was going to steal Jim's thunder.

I don't understand Michael wanting to raise the kid either, or get back with Jan. He is an idiot. The new HR rep was perfect for him, maybe too perfect.

But overall, I enjoyed last night's episode, and the shows improvement in quality since its return. Now I can be optimistic for the next season.

But Jan went behind his back and got artificially inseminated because she didn't want any of the kid's DNA to be that of Michael, because he is an idiot. I'm sorry, but I wouldn't want to be with someone like that, who has treated me the way she treats Michael, and I certainly wouldn't want to raise a child with someone who did that to me or was like that. But - Michael is an oblivious idiot, so it doesn't surprise me at all.

Yeah. I kind of expected (hoped) that to be a revelation, of sorts, for Michael, but apparently it wasn't. :rolleyes:

It did get Stanley to openly and publicly endorse what Michael does though, which was a victory on one front, I guess; even though it was not sincere. I forget the exact example, but I believe it occurred in this past episode during a meeting with him immediately agreeing with him. My mind is drawing a blank.

But anyways... Michael's character is a lost cause. Which I have accepted for a while now. No revelation, no matter how big, or how small, is going to change that.

I've always found the Office hit or miss. And post-strike episodes have been more miss than hit. A few good chuckles here and there, but that's about it.

I think a lot of you folks seem to be missing the point with Michael - he's supposed to be stupid, and obnoxious, and immature, and annoying - he's Michael. If he were none of those things, he would cease to be true to the character. Any change he could possibly go through would completely undermine the character and his entire purpose on this show. If you're looking for a character who is intelligent, reserved, tactful, and mature I'd recommend looking somewhere other than episodic comedy. I'd start with the types of shows one might find on A&E or perhaps PBS.

Michael is a grade-A idiot irregardless if he wants a kid or not. Even still there is no guarantee that Jan will let Michael raise her drive-thru baby. In fact I doubt she will. Anybody stop to consider the fact that Jan would rather have a drive-thru baby than one with Michael's genes? Doing that is a major insult to Michael and proves that she does think that Michael is an idiot.

What will happen next year is Michael will go to the classes with Jan because it may open up some funny moments but the act of it is ridiculous. It would be different if Michael was in love with Jan but he is clearly not and only wants the kid. Using Jan? Somewhat but I don't think that Jan will let him raise the kid and is in turn she's using Michael for companionship during the pregnancy.

I don't know if i'm going to buy season 4 when it comes out. I had mixed feelings about the season and dropping more than 30 bucks for 13 or so episodes seems pretty extreme for me. Plus, i'm trying to save as much $$ as possible these days and that means limiting my DVD/game purchases to two or so. Maybe i'll enjoy them more once I rewatch them.

Creed has some great lines tonight too ("I like her a--") and Dwight and Angela were great.

I did notice that the Jim/Pam relationship is boring. It seems like the writers got bored with dealing with the tension between the two and just jumped right into serious relationship/engagement. I understand that Pam's education is setting the show up for a longer plot return but in the meantime I really don't care.

I agree, great episode. Again, the biggest disappointment plot wise was anything to do with Jim and Pam. Boring! The road trip/move was great and a bit of a surprise ending there. Curious to see how that develops (or doesn't). The Cornell bit was by far the best of the show. I hope we see more of this blatant rivalry of obsurdity in future episodes.

So-so episode. Needed more of the Halloween aspect. I really wanted to see the three Jokers working in the office. And Pam did look like Hitler.

If the show was going to dump Holly, it should've been after November sweeps. Who knows, maybe they'll get back together during sweeps? :yes:

I haven't watched The Office in some time, because my family is TiVoing other things at that time and I lost out that night, but I checked out the Surplus episode on Hulu.

The entire time the minister was speaking, I was trying to see if I could catch any of the German. Dwight was too loud, but I caught the occasional word. When Dwight stopped talking and I caught the last few words the guy said, I thought, "I'm pretty sure he just married them." I was pretty happy to get confirmation of that.

I liked when Mike suggested the surplus be explained to him like he was an eight-year-old, then a five-year-old. It got even funnier when the security guard said that he knew what a surplus was.

Last nights episode was pretty freakin' funny.

- the contest in the beginning was great. Michael cheating was awesome; pure michael scott shenanigans.
- the really REALLY talky pre-duel chat between Dwight and Andy was good.
- Kevin's "accident" on his paperwork; " I did a *****ish job on them" and the "rock" between him and oscar was good.
- michael's facial expression when wallace started to compliment him. And the "let's order some pasta!" was so random!
- the duel itself was good and I loved how they both dumped Angela.

Everything but the Michael subplot at headquarters was good. My guess is they needed to come up with something to get him out of the office so the rest of the episode would work. Pretty lame and it distracted from the rest of the episode a bit.

Perhaps Andy and Dwight will team up from here on out? I'm glad that this plot is wrapping up, it was getting to be a bit too long.

Agree with you on both accounts. I think season started off really strong, but over the last several episodes things have fallen greatly in terms of quality and comedy. Michael is borderline retarded making decisions that nobody would make in their right mind. And Pam leaving with him? That goes against any sort of common sense that she has demonstrated since the beginning of the series. I'm growing bored with this show. My guess is that we'll see Michael and Pam doing their own thing for a few episodes while other bosses do poorly at Scranton and then we'll see Dunder Mifflin ask Michael to come back and so will Pam.

And seriously, 30 ROCK is the funniest show on TV, hand down. The different POV's this past week had me laughing till I was almost in tears, especially Kenneth's and the muppets. :thumbsup:

I'm behind in my DVR watching so I finally saw the episode with Michael quitting. There were a few funny parts but for the most part it seemed like a long drawn out episode jus to get to Michael quitting. It was building to something and the pay off was him walking out? What a let down. Too many episodes seem to be nothing more than a long setup for a future episode and lack entertainment in themselves. The whole love triangle plot degraded into this after awhile.

Cos 30 ROCK is really funny while THE OFFICE is not. You can't tell if you watched any of the last, say, three episodes and then watched an older ep of THE OFFICE, like "The Client," "Dwight's Speech," or "Grief Counseling," you could say that these last few episodes are the same quality.

30 Rock is overrated. Alec Baldwin is funny, Tina Fey is good in Weekend Update lenth doses but she's not a leading lady IMO, and that retard in the trucker hat makes me change channels.

While I definitely believe that The Office will never meet or exceed the genius of Seasons 2 and 3, they've still been knocking out some damn good stuff lately. Not as consistently funny but still a GREAT show. Even though the whole plotline of Michael leaving was pretty dumb, they still did a good job with it. I thought it could be a Jump the Shark moment but it was pretty well done with some good humor. Ryan's not going anywhere (unfortunately) unless they take him off the opening credits (he's one of the 5 stars on a show that should only feature the other 4 sans BJ). Still, the scene of him stealing those bowling shoes was hilarious, reminded me of when he snapped and started egging that company with Dwight.

Parks and Rec is an ok show, not hilarious but still interesting and humorous at times. I'm giving it a change, since The Office was decent in its first 6 episodes but skyrocketed at the beginning of Season 2. I'm giving P&R some time to find its legs.

I kept hoping that he'd just haul off and punch the guy in the face (that's what I probably would have done; can't stand that a-hole...)

John Krasinski's reaction makes me wonder if they kept that part of the script hidden from him before filming? That always seems like a good way to get a great reaction in those types of scenes.

It looks like I'll have to choose between Target and Best Buy tomorrow for the season 5 DVD...right now I'm leaning toward Target.

Reminder: season 6 kicks off tonight! I'm hoping for a decent season, reminiscent of season 2, meaning, ya know...funny! :thumbsup:

You don't even find season 3 funny? Sorry guy...but you're hopeless. :bored:
;)

Decent premiere tonight, I never knew Creed was such the SCUBA diver. :D

I watched several episodes of season five the past few days with various people . . . that was a damn good season.

The premiere was pretty good, but it would have been nice to have had a secondary plot not involved with the rumors (even though there were many different stories around that). It all seemed kind of . . . dunno, pointless, like filler. Still funny, though.

You'll regret that when you find yourself between a moose and her cubs at night.

So-so episode. Hope it's not a precursor to how the rest of the season will be.

I think this episode is full of little gems from numerous cast members...I'll re-watch this one several times.

Another so-so ep.

I hope it gets funny again. If not, there's reruns.

I gotta disagree. The premiere was so-so, but this weeks episode I thought was hilarious. Dwight and Toby's subplot was funny (I loved Dwight's reaction to Jim's promotion).

And the pre-credits sequence had to be one of the funniest moments in the show, ever. :thumbsup:

Episode 2 was as good, if not better, than episode 1 of this season...a great back-to-back pairing in the classic feel of the office setting, now gearing up to go back out in the world with the impending wedding. This season should have a little bit of everything, I'm loving it so far. :thumbsup:

Am I the only one who wants a "Toby"-shirt stuffed bear ??? :grin:

Check out the current issue of Entertainment Weekly...I'm keeping this one for my Office collection, great cover story on Halpert and Pamcakes.

Cartoon Network started running eps of the British version of the Office last Friday night. I have to admit: I laughed more during this one ep than in several eps of the American version.

It was fun trying to figure out which Brit character matched the American character. The British Dwight was a hoot!

I tried getting into the UK Office but couldn't keep watching, it was pretty rough...Ricky Gervais is great but the rest of the cast didn't make me want to keep watching.

Even though I didn't get into that show, I still think it would be awesome to do a crossover someday with David Brent visiting Dunder Mifflin. :)

Remember the good old days, when Cartoon Network only showed cartoons, when MTV showed music, and when Comedy Central showed stuff that was funny?

Oh yes. And when TV Land and Nick at Night showed programs classic shows.

Last week's episode was a bit of a downer and not a great episode...but tonight's is an instant classic and one of my all-time favorites!!!

Congrats Jim and Pam. :thumbsup:

Yes, a great episode all around.

Pam having a different mom was a bit jarring, as I'd just watched the episode with the original actress in it a few days ago. Weird!

I concur - another classic! So many great moments in this one. I did half expect Pam's mom to hook up with Michael in an effort to try and get back at her husband, though! Also, who'd have thought that Dwight could be such a pimp?!:thumbsup:

One of the funniest eps in a very long time. And I was just about ready to give up on the show, too.

That one I didn't catch but I do have another one to add to the list, in The Dundie's Stanley's wife is white.

So, my brother pointed out to me that this did happen afterall - my stupid DVR cut it off!
