Hi everyone,

I just wanted to give Network 10 Australia props for FINALLY airing season 3 of The Office.

Also I was hoping to let all my fellow Aussie the new time slot.

Monday nights 10.10pm Channel 10

The Most Dawsome Show in History... THE OFFICE!!

*doing a little dance*

Don't miss the launch of The Office make sure you register for an alert @

link

The more support the show receives the more respect it will earn from the networks. I am hoping one day they will give it the time slot it deserves!

The other thing we could do is write in to TV Week Australia. They have been great supporters of the show in the past. If they get enough emails I am sure they would let the rest of Australia know about this Emmy award winning gem we all love!

Hell even if you are not in Australia you could do your bit and register for an email alert and support your fellow Office fans down under (TWSS)

NO SPOILER PICKS PLEASE!!!
Ok, i know many people like spoilers and just cant wait to see the episode to find out what happens in the Season 4 premiere, but PLEASE stop posting spoilers in the picks section....we CAN see the pictures! I am totally fine with people talking about spoilers but at least do it in the forum so there is no way people (like myself) who want to remain clueless until the premiere can stumble upon details of the new episode.

Im kinda bummed and angry that i already know what the gist of the episode is about and its all because of spoiler picks....PLEASE STOP!!! I BEG YOU!!

Lately, there has been one thing on my mind. "The Office." Why? Because it is the only show I have ever seen that exibits real life so truthfully. Even reality tv shows leave me saying, "This cannot be real." How do they do it? I analize over and over again, and I have come up with a few reasons. Number one: This is not a rising action, climax, resolution kind of show. In almost every other show out there, a huge, life-altering problem and an improbable resolution are neatly squeezed into a time slot. This is not how "The Office" works. Sometimes, nothing overly important happens in an entire episode. But that just makes the momentous times (JAM moments!) all the more important. Number two: The people look REAL! Pam's hair is either natural looking, or sloppily straightened. Dwight. I think that is all I have to say. Basically, there are not, in real life, that many people walking down the street who are beautiful. On regular shows, every single person, even the "ugly" ones, are perfectly coiffed. Number three: Vulnerability. This is probably the most important feature that makes this show so real, and in turn so addictive. Every main character has been in a...

Kevin is so awesome he needs tights.
Okay so we know Kevin as dull,shows no intrest, and has a lack of motovation. But he's AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He's even more than that, even if you don't know it! He's got a good taste in food, he's got funny jokes, and is very intresting.

You see, Kevin maybe "big" but he's got a good taste in food. In "Office Olympics" he got the most amount of M&M in his/her mouth. Who doesn't love M&M's?! They're good and chocolatey! He also loves noodles! I know I LOVE noodles (especially Ramen Noodles). He also likes do drink (who doesn't besides me?) He also likes Angela's special double-fudge brownies and tons of other sweets. He can even make salad out of a paper shredder.

He's also got funny jokes and humour. Like when Oscar came back from his "gaycation". Hilarious! Who could have come up with better? And when he went into the girls bathroom, it did everybody some good. His Halloween costume was very humorous also, Dunderman rules!!

Cast of one of the greatest TV shows this century.
As I did with Scrubs, i will state why I love this show. The main reason is the characters. I don't know how I would live without knowing characters like Michael,Dwight or Andy. I know their are many nerds (Dwight),smart ass(Andy) and jackass(Michael) in the world but none quite like them. As I have written in one of my other soapboxes how there are different Office viewers. well I am definitely a comedy watcher. I can't wait to see Jim prank Dwight, Andy or Michael's pompous behavior or Dwight or Creed's weirdness. My favorite part of the show are the talking heads. that when the true comedy comes out. I like the Dwangela and Jam's as much as the next person, but I love the characters more.

How come this versions called 'the office' as if its the original when its clearly just a bastardised dumbed down version of the actual british one? I mean i have the occasional laugh at this one but its just so insanely blatant, which when you compare it to the subtle lines and nods of the british one it makes it look like the special little brother version. 'The office (uk)' should just be 'the office' and the american dumbed down to hell version should be 'the office (us remake).
Any way why do americans have to remake every british programme and take out all the things that made it brilliant in the first place? Theyll be remaking monty python - life of brian next starring
Will Ferrel and Adam Sandler.

Hi fanpoppers,

Be pre warned…. This IS a spoiler post!

This is posted over at TWop Forum, the spoilers were posted by a guy named Jeremy Goodwin. SO full credit to him! I was just so excited to read this I had to share with all you guys!!

OKAY it reads :

Jeremy Goodwin

Okay, you got me, since this is the spoilers thread after all, here is what I saw:

1. Michael is struggling heavily with the run as Phyllis and Bob Vance jog by. They talk to him for a second but he waves them on.

2. Michael is now sitting on the ground looking completely miserable as most of the rest of the cast runs by.

3. One of the people running by is Andy, who as mentioned earlier is in full yellow running gear. What I couldn't find mentioned was the fact that wardrobe painted blood on his nipples so that it would show through. He is noticeably struggling in pain from some hardcore nipple chaffing as he passes Michael. LOTS of blood!

Jenna Fischer
From our first glimpse of her, sitting in reception, Jenna Fischer has portrayed the demure and put-upon Pam Beasley with style, wit and grace. We fell in love with her over the first two seasons, but it was in the third that she really shone. From the first episode, as Pam struggled to adjust to her new life as a single girl and a life without Jim, we saw the shy receptionist grow into a confidant woman. While she was exceptional at all times in the third season, there are a few moments where she really proved what an amazing actress she is.

Just one of her many exceptional moments was in “The Merger,” where Pam tried her best to return her and Jim’s relationship back to normal. She is heartbroken, however, to realize that Jim has yet to truly forgive her for rejecting him and that he is now involved with the sophisticated Karen. Despite this, Pam pushes on, trying to become a stronger person while at the same time trying to repair the distance between her and Jim. In “The Convict,” Jim plays a prank on Andy by giving him misinformation on what Pam likes and Pam is thrilled to see a glimpse of her old friend again. Then, in “Back From...

Okay, so most people typicaly hate mean,snotty,rude,bossy people. So, Angela, from the office, is one of those people. So really, in the real world, most people hate those kinds of people like Angela.

BUT, we need people like her . Is that a shocker to you?

People like Angela, tell it like it is. And have 100% truth in their words. Your friends and family will always give you a positive side, but Angela will always tell the honest answer.

Also, they can tell when things are whoreish or not :). I mean really! If you wear orange, people will think that you look whoreish (maybe) so people like Angela can warn you when you're about to make a big mistake.

People like Angela can keep things in tip-top shape also. Like when we need to organize a party. Or when you need to take care of a situation, Angela can handle it in the best ways.

Shockingly, she also has a very cute boyfriend and loves him very much, so I guess that can set an example.

The kiss we were all waiting for
In the decades since television shows invaded the subconscious of the average American viewer, there have been hundreds of thousands of TV couples. Lucy and Desi. Captain Nelson and Jeannie. Ross and Rachel. There are great romances, there are disasterous romances, and the most addictive of all...the "will they/won't they" romances. It's one of the classic hooks of television shows; two people who seem destined to be together, but can never quite make it work. So, what makes the relationship between fictional characters Pam and Jim on The Office, different from all those other relationships? To understand the lure of the Pam and Jim romance, you must start at the beginning. Not just at the beginning of the show, but at the beginning of Pam and Jim's relationship. If you are a dedicated Office viewer, you will refer to them simply as JAM...an affectionate nickname developed through Internet chat rooms and blogs.

Jim is a salesman at Dunder-Mifflin, a paper supply company located in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He has worked there for over five years and, despite comments that he would have to throw himself in front of train if this became his career, continues to resist...

Here are the top 5 reasons Andy Bernard is almost as awesome as Jim.

1.His catchy nick names and phrases. They are pretty awesome, and I found myself using a few on more than one occasion. Examples are: "Big Tuna", "Beer me", and "I really Schruted it".

2.His musical skills. He is a pretty decent singer AND he plays the banjo. What more could you want? My personal favorite song of his is "Andy and the Tuna".

3.His amazing collection of ties. Not only does he have a great tie selection, but he miss-matches them so they actually look good.

4.His ability to manipulate people by slowly wearing them down. This will, I repeat WILL, get him far. Mark my words.

5.His ability to beat-up most people. Angry Andy could possibly dominate anyone or anything. This includes Superman, and Dwight Schrute.


Anyone agree?
Also, any other reasons he is amazing that I may have missed??

I was just reading a viewers take on Michael Scott. I was actually quite surprised that there are people out there with such a negative view this ‘fictional’ character.

To me Michael is hilarious because as much as we hate to admit it, there is people out there just like that! Trust me, I have actually worked with a few.

First off let me say that yes Michael Scott is for the most part is inappropriate …. Okay he is inappropriate in every way possible. In fact I would argue that more so he is ignorant – to the point of naive. The writers, in my view, have worked long and hard (TWSS) developing and explaining Michael. Michael is more than just another rude intolerable boss.

Michael wants to be every one's friend. He is afraid to be alone and craves to be popular. Michael feels the best way to run the office is by entertaining his troops.

Michael: I am like Bette Midler in For the Boys. Gotta keep the troops entertained

On the forums I have been hearing a lot of anti-James Gunn comments. Yes, we all know John Krasinski is a lot cuter than James Gunn and yes, it would be very cute if John and Jenna were indeed dating. But in reality James and Jenna have been together for a long time and it would be unrealistic to have hopes that Jenna will divorce the dork an go for the hunk.

James Gunn and Jenna Fischer have been happily married since fall of 2000, about a year before Jenna even started working with John. I think what most people are missing here is that actors DO have lives other than the lives in their hit roles.

Jenna Fischer met James Gunn through her life-long freind Sean Gunn and the story was very Jim/Pam like. John Krasinski may be single, but if wanted to find a girlfriend I'm sure he would have no problem at all.

Hope this article didn't ruin any dreams you had for Jenna and John, but anything is possible. I would be just as excited as anyone else who reads this if Jenna and John were going out...I'm just saying its very unlikely.

If you have been a part of the Office Survival Game at all the past week or so you've probably noticed that many people are cheering for Toby. I didn't get it at first. Sure I like him, and I feel bad for him a lot of the time on the show but would I say he's my favorite character? No.

However, I decided that I would give Toby a chance and look at why people might like him as much as they do. I watched some Toby video clips and watched some of the episodes he has big parts in and I began to understand why Toby has gained such a following.

He's the underdog! He's not the funniest on the show. Michael's awkward comments and Dwight's insane view of reality blow his comedy away. I'm a man but I can say that Toby is not the most attractive of the guys on the show. Jim was obviously cast as the good looking guy and I don't think anyone can argue Kevin's good looks (kidding, unless you like that). Toby doesn't get the girl, people forget he's there, he sits back in the corner. He's the underdog and that's why people love him.

There are many different types of fans who watch the office. lets admit it we are all obsessed with the office. as well there are 2 main fans bases the comedy people and the romantic people. the office does a good job evening the romantic aspect and the comedy aspects of the show. lets learn more about them.

1)The Jam Watchers

These fans watch just to see if pam and jim will have their true love. they don't like michael or dwight as much as pam and jim. they don't just want Jam to happen but they love and root for Dwangela (dwight and Angela),Relly(Ryan And Kelly) and Man (Michael and Jan).

2)The Humorous Watchers

These fans watch purely to see michael's ignorant remarks, Dwight or Andy being tricked by Jim, Stanley sarcastic remarks, Creed's Creepiness,Angela's bitchiness. They hate to see the long looks that Jim gives Pam.

3)"I don't care i like both" watchers

this is probably 80 % of the office watchers. they like the relationships and the comedy aspect. pretty self explanatory.

How could anyone hate 'The Office'? The show is got to be the funniest on TV right now that's still running. The complaints of the show are always something along the lines of it being low budget and just a show for NBC to fill time with nonsense.

Sure the show doesn't have big explosions or violence galore, and to me that's what makes it good. It tweaks a real life situation and makes it great!

What other show has a cast this big, and ALL of them funny? Each character has a different reason that they are funny.

Take Jim, he's funny for his pranks that he pulls. Now take michael, he's funny for the akward moments he brings. Now look at Kevin, He's funny for his one-liners and observations.

Each of these characters are really funny, but they are gut wrenchingly awsome when they are together.

One of my favorite parts of the British Version of The Office was the gap before the specials. There was something about seeing how everyone reacted to their sudden notoriatety. There is something disarming about how David Brent reacted to his sudden infamy.
I wonder if Jim and Pam would react differently in the event that all of their talking heads were public knowledge. I would imagine, that any woman Jim was with would leave him. Pam would probably realize that they should be together, and there you go.
What do ya'll think?

Jam interaction is essential for a great office episode.
When the office first started, there wasn't much buzz about it. Personally I didn't start watching the office until the middle of the second season. After a while it's picked up speed and there are more viewers now. But are the new episodes getting better or worse? The office was great leading up to casino night when Jim told Pam that he loved her. Everyone was waiting for that moment to happen. So more people watched. But since that's already over there isn't as much excitement in the office. There's no will they/ won't they sexual tension between Jim and Pam. I think that the whole relationship between Jim and Pam made the office great. Without the Jam relationship the office has gotten sort of boring. Each new episode has less jam interaction. In the most recent episode there was none whatsoever. Not only is there less jam but the pranks aren't as good. I have to admit that Jim dressing up as Dwight was genius. I think that the last good prank there was, was when Jim hid Andy's cell phone in the ceiling. I think that the office was the best during the second season. Whenever I watch the new episodes I don't laugh like I used to, I just think to myself," I hope the next one is...

Dwight, my favorite character
As we all know the office is one of the funniest shows in television (if not the funniest) I decided to make a top 10 of my favorite characters. By the way this is from 1 being my favorite and 10 being my least favorite of the ten.

1. Dwight
Dwight believes everything anyone says and takes everyone really seriously when it's clearly a joke. As well I like how he is a super nerd. Nerds are just funny to me for some reason.
2. Andy
Although Dwight is bitter enemy with Andy and I did hate how he got rid of Dwight but I still love how he can make awesome catchphrase for example dawsome,Beer me,sorry i annoyed you with my friendship. I also like how he think he can sing and this guy punched a wall.
3. Michael
4 words: thats what she said
but seriously if Steve Carell left the show i would not watch it anymore. I like how Michael should not be a boss of Dunder Mifflin because of his immaturity but there are some times when he is a great boss.

Nunez's character on "Halfway Home," a TV show about convicts on Comedy Central.
Ok, I'm not sure this is the right place to comment on my recent discovery, but I just now realized that Oscar Nunez acts on "The Office," "Halfway Home," and (occasionally) "Reno 911." I mean, I knew it was the same actor for Halfway Home and Reno 911, but I never imagined that calm accountant was also a convicted felon (although, maybe I'm just dumb and not good at putting faces together).

So, yeah, great job, Oscar Nunez, at landing those roles and being an awesome actor.

These are in no particular order.

Michael: It was a crime of passion Jan, not a disgruntled employee. Everyone here is extremely gruntled.


Dwight: Every day for eight years I have brought pepper spray into this office to protect myself and my fellow employees and for eight years people have laughed at me. Well, who's laughing now? (Eyes teared up as effect of pepper sprady)


Dwight:No, don't call me a hero. Do you know who the real heroes are? The guys who wake up every morning and go into their normal jobs and get a distress call from the commissioner and take off their glasses and change into capes and go around fighting crime. Those are the real heroes.


Michael:Wikipedia, is the best thing ever. Anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject, so you know you are getting the best possible information.


Toby: I don't think Michael intended to punish me by putting Ryan back here with Kelly but if he did, well, genius.

ahhh, love. what a gorgeous site to behold.

For two, long years, jim and pam have flirted back and forth, fulfilling our weekly need of "will they/wont they" tension.

until last may, when jim put it all out there, and we all weeped as they separated once more.

so the new season started, and jim wasnt there. pam was a wreck and only we knew jim was moving on.

>then he came back! but he brought his new love interest with him.

and now, we hold our breaths until january 4th, when new episodes begin again.
