I’ve never seen the show Reno 911! but as best I can tell it is a mockup of the popular show Cops. Am I right on this?
But I do know that they have a movie coming out soon and Oscar from The Office was in it. Also, I do know that the latest promo has an appearance of Rainn Wilson (Dwight) in it. It was entertaining. I did get a good laugh toward the end at the response when Lt. Dangle got the finger hold.
Update: I just removed the embedded video because it played automatically every time I visited the site. How annoying. If you still want to watch it, you can visit here.
Bobby Ray Shafer added a new post to his blog today. It offers a little more on the Wedding episode:
In the summer of ’55, my father, Bob married my mother, Phyllis Smith.
So here I am all these years and hard miles later standing on the altar under Hollywood TV lights getting married to Phyllis Smith. Bob and Phyllis. Again. And somehow it makes perfect sense to me and in the tuxedo jacket pocket over my heart I’ve a got a treasured photograph of them on their long-ago wedding day and their joy still shines through in it, and I’ve got that going for me and then the minister says, “And do you Phyllis take Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration, as your lawful wedded husband?” And she says, “I do.” And then I said, “I do.” And we all said I do, then and now, now and then.
Michael got the giggles when we were filming “the fart scene.” In fact, at the screening of the episode, he said it was the hardest he’s laughed all year. I think it was the word pungent that kept getting him. Between takes he was kneeling in a corner trying to stop. I had to turn my back to him. But the real problem was watching the monitors for my cue and trying not to laugh and on the floor below me I can hear the Producers and Writers laughing and Scott’s laughing and I have NO IDEA how Phyllis is managing to keep it together, but then, suddenly, I realize, he’s about to open that door, damn-it! you better be ready! And I was.
There have been so many “highlights” for me in regard to all aspects of this episode; but my favorite moment was when we preparing to shoot the chapel exit and there was a lot of commotion and everyone was being silly with the rice and Phyllis got a little misty and whispered to me, “I don’t want this to end.” And I said, “I know. It’s been so much fun! But we’ll always have it on DVD!” And then we ran out to the van
LITO Reader Big Tuna sent in a link to the French Version of The Office called “Le Bureau.” The video that they show seems almost exactly like the US Pilot which was almost exactly like the UK Pilot.
I don’t understand French, but it was entertaining to watch this episode and see how they have Frenched it. (<-Michael Joke!) I've seen the US Pilot so many times that I was able to follow along quite easily. The picture above is of their Michael and their Dwight and it's when he finds his personal item in some sort of dessert. In the US version it was a stapler in Jell-o, but I can't tell what the item is nor the dessert. Maybe we have some French LITO readers?
Last night, Rainn Wilson (Dwight) hosted Saturday Night Live. As usualy, I was way too tired to stay up that late, but luckily NBC has posted some of the videos on their homepage. My favorite was definitely the monologue. SNL goes Office-style and and even Rashida makes a guest appearance.
In case there is anyone out there who has not seen these bloopers from season two, LITO reader Ryan found them on Youtube and sent them in. Even though I’d seen them before, they sure were fun to watch again.
