Ever watch the British show?
I gotta say Andy's lines about Mad Men was my favorite of the night, which I am sure has somethingthing to do with my Mad Men thread I started in this forum.
Something like "You know there are things you want to like but just don't? Like Mad Men"
I don't get the love for Spader.
Spader came in at the end of the Practice and helped give it life for a few more seasons, and then spin-off into Boston Legal. So it's possible NBC is hoping they can do the same with him on the Office.
Spader just has such funny mannerisms and ticks it just made his man of confidence vibe that much funnier imo.
I can totally see him manipulating all the folks in the office and totally confusing them with his way of operating. He also seemed to get a bit more air time than the others as far as storyline goes.
I felt like they were setting it up for either someone currently on the show, most likely Dwight, or Catherine Tate. Tate's starting a much-publicized commitment to do Shakespeare (in England), so I doubt she'd even be available to film The Office if she were selected.
If Jo doesn't jam her in there, then I don't see why there was any point in having that snippet of dialogue where Jo told Jim that they knew each other.
That's why I think it's probably going to be her. Just a Checkov's gun thing...
And I like her too. She an extremely versatile actress and talented comedian, so I think she would do well. Even if you didn't like the character as it was written in this episode, nothing says she has to stay in that same box by the time next season rolls around.
And I had no idea that was Warren Buffett, that's awesome! At first, I was thinking maybe Buck Henry, but then I just didn't know who.
I was thinking exactly the same thing! I was like "that's David Brent!"
"Suckee....suckee....that's her name!" That was my biggest LOL moment.
Well, the kinetic jumping all over the place was a staple of David Brent (actually most Gervais characters).
I didn't like her either, but more because I didn't understand a lot of what she was saying. Her personality reminded me a bit of the Will Farrell guy - crazy and hard to figure out.
I had no idea that was Warren Buffett.
I feel like they are setting it up for Jim to take over. Especially with the "I'm holding you responsible for this decision" line that Jo gave him. Plus, at least he would hold his own future in his own hands.
The office is not strong enough to not replace Steve C. and go at it with current staff. They need a top flight star to fill in for him.
I disagree. I think the last episode (not this one) showed they could have a solid show without Steve or any big star.
Remember, Steve C. himself wasn't very well known when the show started, everyone on the show now is a bigger star than he was when it began.
Actually I had feeling that was going to happen. They have to have a season finale cliffhanger.
I also felt a little bad for Phylis when she found out Erin isn't her daughter.
But Jim could become manager and they could bring in a big name sales person to replace him.
Me too. I wonder how long she'll keep it to herself. Both the Erin character and the Phyllis character seem to need to be put in those roles of mother/daughter.
Also, is Gabe gone, permanently? I haven't enjoyed him in crazy mode much.
Dwight could be Jim's assistant to the manager?
I like the idea of Pam stepping in as manager.
I think at this point, Gabe can't realistically work with Andy.
And good for Andy-realizing that Erin chose Gabe over him. I was proud of him.
