Hot pizza, check it and see

Last Thursday’s episode of The Office (Sex Ed) hilariously incorporated all of Michael Scott’s exes over the past 6 seasons into one convenient plot about herpes. However, one of my favorite moments from the episode was from the B story, which was when Andy took it upon himself to hold a sex education seminar for…

Michael Scott is leaving The Office

Oh no! According to E!, Steve Carell confirmed that he’s leaving NBC’s The Office for greener pastures. My guess is that Michael Scott will get transferred to Nashua so he can be near Holly, but I’m just pulling that out of my butt. Can The Office survive without Michael Scott? Maybe not the fake tv…

I am on hold, with the State Parks Department…

I forgot to post this last week, but on NBC on Thursday night, Parks and Recreation illustrated a great example of songspeak. While much of songspeak consists of using song lyrics in everyday situations, a lot of it comes from making up lyrics on the fly to songs, usually involving the situation you’re currently in….

It’s a nice day for an Office wedding

Last night marked the biggest television wedding since Monica and Chandler or Luke and Laura when Jim and Pam got married on The Office. The episode actually surpassed my expectations, and the entire cast got some really funny moments.

It also features an all too rare appearance of the keytar. On this endless ocean…

After 15 years, ER finally flatlines

Last night, NBC aired the series finale of ER. The past few years, ER has slipped a few slots in my list of favorite shows, but it has always remained in the top 5. I was a sophomore at WPI when the show first premiered, 10pm on Thursday nights (where it remained for its entire…
