And here’s clip three – I guess Michael and Toby’s counseling sessions are still going on. Sasha’s sure growing up too.

And the second scene where we see that Daryl has some real business sense and that it takes some big guns to persuade Andy, but his alma matter is always a deal clincher:
Here’s the first deleted scene from WUPFH.com, they sure found a well endowed actress to play Buxom Mother Harvest:
“WUPFH.com” starts out with a brief Dunder-Mifflin power outage. This strikes a funny chord with me. We live in Seattle, Washington now, and our power was knocked out this past Monday at 9:13 PM. It didn’t come back on until 5 AM Tuesday morning, meaning we once again had to spend the night shivering in total darkness. We experience power blackouts here in the Pacific northwest quite regularly, at least one a year. My wife and I both grew up in the Scranton area, where the winters area are a heck of a lot wilder and woolier than they are here. We lived there for over twenty years, and neither one of us ever had the power go out in our households; not even once, through all the ice storms, and freakish blizzards and mountainous snowfalls indigenous to northeastern Pennsylvania. Go figure… Read on »
I suppose that as soon as LITO readers realize who is writing this recap… me, Broccoli Rob… they will say “Oh no, not that guy; he never misses an opportunity for an obvious corny joke.” So, you’ll all expect me to describe WUPHF.com as a “dog” of an episode, or The Office as an “old dog” of a TV show. Well, forget it… If you think I’d resort to anything that obvious, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Read on »
I apologize for the late posting of this recap. My kids have been sick and I’ve been dealing with other family issues this weekend, but I’m now fully ready to commit to reacp mode, so here goes nothing:
Since our favorite show seems to be flailing as of late and the use of music in every episode, which seems to be what attracts viewers these days, doesn’t seem to be working out too well, it appears our dear writers have turned to interjecting actual scenesfrom what is probably the most globally popular show currently on TV into an Office episode; leading us to what can only be called – wait for it………..an Office Gleek Out!
Not that I mind a combination of my two favorite shows, I thought it was done in a fun way without it turning into an actual crossover. I can honestly say that if we have to have music on The Office, I’m glad I didn’t have to listen to Andy belt out any acapella and it came from individuals with actual talent. Not that Ed Helms isn’t talented, but let’s face it, he’s no Amber Riley. What I want to know is, how much did it cost NBC to secure footage of the Fox Network show? Probably as much as Cablevision paid News Corp to get Fox broadcasting back on my television set. Apparently it cost about $150 million to “make the Glee happen”. Anyway, on to the episode.
Some Scrantonicities are easier to write than others. “Viewing Party” was one of the easiest Scrantonicities. This was so much fun to write that I’m probably spoiled for the rest of the season. Oh well… I’ll show you what I found on the show… with glee! Read on »
The synopsis for “Christening” made it sound so promising for “Scrantonicity.” The bulk of the action would be taking place outside the office, much of it in a local church. Holy smoke, this seemed heaven-sent for area references. So… what did I find, pray tell? Read on »
Watching “Christening” made me think of Willie Mays.
In 1973 The New York Mets traded for the 41 year old slugger and one of New York’s favorite sons returned home from San Francisco. But he was a shadow of his former self. He was older and creakier than you cared to admit and you were a bit embarrassed by his attempts to play the outfield. In your heart you rooted for him but it was clear that his best days had passed and it was time to move on.
The Office, for me, is starting to become Willie Mays circa 1973.

I had my doubts that I was gonna get any Halloween treats from this weeks’ Office; since the “Costume Contest” would be taking place exclusively inside Dunder-Mifflin, I didn’t think there’d be much material for “Scrantonicity.” But there was enough to work with; I was able to stitch something together, like creating a costume from odds and ends lying around. So, here’s what I was able to scare up… Read on »
