Webisode Nine is is now on the NBC site. You know the recipe.
-Kevin has a couple funny lines. (Do you think his character will be different when the real show starts?)
-Angela is bossy
-Oscar gets a couple sentences in
-Good reminder that we’re REALLY looking forward to September 21st
Today on LJ, someone posted a link to a really funny podcast on iTunes. The podcast is called “Little Miss Sunshine -…and the whole Kitchen Sink”. It’s basically an interesting way to advertise Steve’s most recent movie, Little Miss Sunshine.
So, why am I posting a link to it here? Because it’s pretty funny. Most of the episodes have Steve Carell interviewing…Steve Carrell. So, if you’re an iTunes user, you can download the free podcasts here. (That is an iTunes link.)
I just received a message from a reader pointing me to a review of the upcoming DVD’s. After reading it, I am very excited to receive them!!
There are two and a half hours of deleted scenes. There are 17 minutes of bloopers that feature “the majority of the cast breaking character or flubbing lines. This was a very entertaining featurette and shows how hard it is to be funny in a deadpan way. This kind of extra can be hit or miss, but here it hits hard.”
Oh, there is a lot more. YOu can read the review here.
Also, if you haven’t picked up the DVD set yet, you can buy it at Amazon here. (That’s an affiliate link that will help LITO out.) The set is currently 35% off so you can get it for $32.49.
It will ship on September 12th. Just in time to freshen up for the new season.
I don’t know how they do this so quickly, but some kind person has already put up a video of the actual presentation of the show. In case you missed it, I’ll post it here.
Four things I liked:
-The Office gets the biggest applause when the are announcing the nominees. It was like this all night long. Seriously.
-Conan’s reaction when the winner is announced
-The huge applause for the creators of the show
-The complete humility of Steve Carell (He should have won Best Actor In A Comedy too!)
LITO reader Scott just sent in a great article about The Office.
Every year critics dismiss tonight’s Emmy Awards as a know-nothing irrelevancy. I don’t care. NBC’s “The Office,” the best family bonding show since “The Wonder Years,” is up for best comedy series tonight. From my little darkened TV room, we’ll be rooting big time.
Here’s why I adore “The Office”
She goes on to list all the reason. It is a very interesting article from our friends in New England. You can read the rest of it here.
I just got done reading Brian’s (Kevin) blog on TV Guide and he gave us all kinds of interesting tidbits. I hope he doesn’t get in trouble. Here’s a taste:
Where will The Office shoot this season, apart from the set? Any chance we could see Michael at Hooters or Applebee’s again?
If I were running the ship, we would be at Hooters weekly. But alas, I am not, so we are not. Not sure about frequenting either of those establishments, but future episodes call for outings to a convention in Philadelphia, a Hindu festival, a beet farm and, rumor has it, a trip to Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Question 9: When will we meet the other branch?
There is an episode in the early part of the season called “The Convention,” so it is safe to say we will see some other employees of Dunder-Mifflin there.
Well, it’s Thursday morning which means there is a new webisode for The Office. I’m not exactly sure what it is about because it seems to be having a bit of trouble again. For me, it’s not loading the flash file after the commercial. (I’m on an Intel iMac.)
If any of you can watch it, let us know how it is. I’ll be watching for it to work on my machine. Take a watch here.
(PS, if you haven’t been keeping up with the comments in the last post I wrote, you ought to take a look. The list is getting long and it’s been fun so far. )
LITO reader Mikey dropped me a note and suggested a game that sounds fun. I will write a statement about one of the Office characters. IF you know who I am talking about, then you can give the annwer in the comments and write a new statement about someone else. For instance, if I write:
I have a bobblehead in my likeness
Then the next person would write:
Dwight has a bobblehead in his likeness.
Then they would write another one for the next commenter that comes along. (You can write both of these in the same comment.)
Just two rules:
1) Always answer in a full sentence. Don’t just give the name of the person because if comments get out of order than it could get confusing.
2) Be sure to refresh the page right before you write your comment. Perhaps someone else has already answered the most recent one and a refresh of the page will bring the most recent comments.
Alright, here is the first one. I’ll make it easy so the ball gets rolling:
IF you take a look at the right sidebar of this blog, you’ll see a new timer there counting down to the season opening. I have it set to Scranton Time (EST), so those in the MidWest and us in the West will have to adjust it accordingly. But either way, it will give you a good idea of how much longer we have to wait.
And what are we waiting for? LITO reader Kevin reminds us in this movie. It’s his first Office flick, so show him some love.
