You're Hired!


NBC has quietly been bringing back The Sitcom. One of the gems they took a chance on was a remake of the British phenomenon The Office. It's become must see TV for me, the boyfriend and anyone else who's suffered through pompous-do-nothing-but-muck-it-up bosses, coworkers you swear must come from another planet, work crushes and outright boredom from 9 to 5 that you've just got to find a way to shake it up.

The season finale left it all up in the air. Will Jim transfer to the NY headquarters? Will Pam come to her senses and realize she's in love with the wrong guy? Will Dwight and the tightass baby poster loving accounting chic get it on? Dear readers, you'll have to wait for the season premiere on September 21st. Until then, a little gossip for you...

I read in the trades today that "NBC's "The Office" will have two new employees when it starts up again on Sept. 21. Ed Helms, from "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," and Chip Esten from "Whose Line Is It Anyway" will both be playing new workers at the Dundler Mifflin paper company."

This sitcom is great. I think I like it so much because there are so many elements of the show that are true. The idiot boss, other employees that have abnormal quirks, etc. It's definitely a must see.

So they're adding a couple of new faces? Have you ever noticed that when they start adding people it takes something away from the show? I'll try to keep an open mind, but why screw with a good thing?

love the british version, but i must admit that i'm liking the american one and the decidedly different direction it's going.

yeah and they lucked out with Steve Carrol. I laugh at anything he's in (although Little Miss Sunshine looks dumb!!)

sorry, but i have to disagree with you, slinks, with regard to Little Miss. my entire theater was laughing throughout the trailer when i was at Devil Wears Prada (surprisingly pretty good, btw. streep is a brilliant bitchy boss).
