Dwight. A name full of bravery and wonder.

Kurt. A name that means business.

Schrute. A name that produces very thirsty babies.

Fact: These names together make an american hero.

Work Life: For a man as young as he is, Dwight has accomplished more in life than many co-workers his age. First off, Dwight makes it known that he is the top salesman in the company. this didn't come easy, it took a lot of persistence and hard work. and with hard work comes rewards. Dwight may be a salesman, but he is also assistant regional manager. (He was assistant to the regional manager, but was promoted when he was beaten by Michael in a fight.) Not only does he help the paper world, he helps battle crime. As a Lacawanna County volunteer sheriff, he makes a difference in the world. He almost caught a flasher and almost caught a pot head when he found a joint in the parking lot. "what more can this man do?" you might wonder. Well, along with having a beet farm, he and his cousin Mose Run a bed and breakfast. this bed and breakfast even got a great online review.

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.

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...

I approach this letter as if I was writing the eulogy for a friend who has recently passed on. While I know that this is one instance where my “friend” will eventually crawl out of their grave and come knocking on my door, I am still in a period of mourning. Even when you know your friend will be coming back, it is still painful to think about being without them. And that is what The Office is to me, in a way…a wonderful friend. I’m constantly developing deep (bordering on psychotic) ties to certain television shows, so it’s no real surprise to me how deeply affected by the writer’s strike I am. However, to really come to terms with the extended hiatus of The Office, I need to write this letter and say my goodbyes.


Goodbye Michael. I will miss your offensive remarks, your idiotic actions and your perpetual inability to act like an adult. Even now, I must suppress an urge to scream “that’s what she said.” I will miss your sweetness and your desperate need to be loved by all. Yes, Michael, you are needy…accept it. And I’m still doing my best to locate your missing turtles. It doesn’t look good though.

Strikers outside Paramount
Picket signs. Giant cups of coffee. Sore feet. Emotionally charged people who are willing to put everyone on the line for what they believe in. Those are the makings of any good strike. Unfortunately, the current strike of the Writer’s Guild has one other ingredient that most strikes don’t have…heartbroken fans. It might not be considered normal to be psychically and emotionally affected by the writer’s strike, but I can attest to the fact that it is possible. Since learning of what the strike means for my favorite television shows, I have been conflicted with emotions of pride, grief, and anger. Pride, because I understand what it feels like to know you deserve something and be charged up enough to be willing to do anything to get it. Grief, because my life revolves around television, as sad as that may be, and the idea that no new episodes will be made hurts me to the core of my being. Anger, because without fans like you and me, the writers and actors would have no jobs or salaries to argue over. It actually feels like a betrayal of my trust, and I don’t know how to reconcile that. Part of me wants to support the writers and the other part wants to scream at them to...

Hi all,

Branch Wars was such a fun episode that I find myself having to write about it!

Whats not to like?

There is a finner things club happening in the break room and staff poaching! Not enough? Ok, bring on a sabotage attempt for Utica by Curly (Jim) Larry ( Michael) and Moe ( Dwight). Oh and the return of Karen.!

Between the constant giggles I did feel a little for Jim having to face Karen. Like most people after a nasty break up its always a goal to avoid your ex like the plague.

Jim: I can't believe you guys. I'm not going to go further piss off my ex-girlfriend.

No such luck for Jim - I bet when he woke up that morning he didn't envisage himself being kidnapped, forced to wear a ladies warehouse uniform (and a mustache! I guess he should have known that something was going to wrong when he climbed into the car with Dwight and Michael. Remember the Injury? Jim what were you thinking? lol

This is a completely factual and accurate genealogical account of the Schrute family line. It is based on first hand information from Dwight Kurt Schrute, obtained during the filming of a documentary. The names, dates, locations and all other information may be made up, but the rest is the absolute truth.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Effie Margaret Elderstein was the only child of wealthy German factory owners. She was a quiet and plain young woman, who had many suitors, but little interest in any of them. When she was 19, a skinny Finnish farmer wandered into her father’s factory, looking for work. That farmer, Joseph Samuel Schrude, caught Effie’s interest. The two talked for hours and began a brief courtship. In 1876, against her parents’ wishes, Effie married Joseph. The couple settled in the small town of Darmstadt, Germany, where Joseph bought a farm and begun growing beets. Effie and Joseph worked side and by side and raised nine children. In 1902, Effie and Joseph’s youngest son, Dwide Schrude said goodbye to his parents and siblings and stowed away on a...

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...

Looks familiar, right?
Like most Office fans, I was enthralled by the early series chemistry between Jim and Pam. It was a huge part of why I started watching the show. However, since they've started dating, I feel like their relationship has lost some of it's appeal to me. OK, I'll be honest: It's lost all of it's appeal.

I feel like the writers are struggling to keep things interesting. The hint of a marriage proposal mere months after getting them together seems to me like a desperate attempt at creating some kind of drama/suspense in an otherwise drama/suspense-free relationship.

It's a problem that has plagued television ever since Sam and Diane. When you base your main love interest on "Will they/won't they?" tension, how do you keep things interesting once you've gotten them together? Cheers never fully recovered from Diane leaving the series. Friends had to break Rachel and Ross up and get them back together, ad nauseum.

I feel like a bit of a hypocrite for even writing this because I wanted Jim and Pam to get together as badly as anybody else. However, now that they actually are together, I feel like it's become too much of a good thing... like that time...

Summary: This is a diary entry written from the point-of-view of one of the cameramen. Despite the fact that he is always in the offices of Dunder Mifflin Scranton, we never get to hear from him...until now. This entry is dated the day of Michael and Jan's dinner party. There are no pictures because I wanted to preserve the feeling that you are reading a diary. Plus, I'm lazy.

DIARY ENTRY FOR APRIL 10, 2008:
It’s about 11:30 at night and Joe and I are parked outside Schrute Farms, watching as Dwight and Michael go into the farmhouse. Dwight’s cousin, Mose, is peeking out of the barn at us. The last time we were at Schrute Farms he threw manure at us, so we keep our distance. Joe is already starting to doze off in the passenger seat, but I continue to aim the camera at the farmhouse, just in case Michael should coming running out. Dwight’s home is hardly what I will call conducive to sleeping and Michael seems the type to be easily rattled by strange noises. After spending so many years watching these people, I have gotten pretty good at gauging how they will react in a situation. So, as I wait to see if Michael will make it through the night, I think...

Every Thursday most of you Fanpoppers watch The Office. Most of you get so excited over them. But what if you turned the TV on Thursday and you already knew what was going to happen. You already knew the JAM plot, the main plot, the conclusion, etc. There isn't much point in whatching it right? You get to see the jokes cracked,which is a pretty good reason. But really? You already know what happens!
Well really, I hate spoilers!!! Every Thursday I like a surprise, a plot that will get me each time. I don't want to know what happens until I see it for myself. When I watch "The Office" I want to be able to think in my head "What's going to happen this time? What crazy stunt will Michael pull? What will be the JAM moment of the episode?"
When the spoilers flooded in for the season premire , I tried to avoid them at all costs. If you had been waiting for all of summer, I think it should be a surprise. If you know what's going to happen, there's no point in watching the season premire after waiting for MONTHS!!!

They say the first step on the road to recovery is admitting you have a problem. So here it goes. I am an addict. An Office addict. One might say that I practically eat, sleep, and breathe the Office. I know there are many more out there like me, or perhaps some that have worse afflictions, so I speak with all Office Addicts in mind- Enjoy.

When did I first realize I was becoming hopelessly addicted? Maybe it was when I began quoting lines from the show regularly? Was it when "that's what she said" became a reflex? Perhaps it was when my friends and I began using "shun, unshun, and reshun"? It could've been when I watched episodes repeatedly, or when I hungrily searched for any video, newspaper, magazine, or internet link that had to do with The Office. It is hard to tell for sure, but at any rate, I figured out by now that I'm an addict. Have I tried kicking the habit? Well, that would be like Michael being good friends with Toby, or Todd Packer not being a jerk. Impossible! As I expressed in a recent pick I made, I would rather watch The Office than have $10,000. That is what I call an expensive habit.

Hers is my letter to NBC about the strike. I am in full support mode for it! I was wondering--first off, is it effective? Do you think I should mail it or email it?

Dear NBC,

Watching my favorite shows on your website was a huge convenience for me if I didn’t get to catch one on TV, even with the unentertaining ads that cut through the program. Your website in general was very enjoyable and I spent a lot of time on it, particularly The Office site. But now I regret to inform you that I will no longer be accessing your website in support of the WGA writers.

I was shocked to learn that the writers are not compensated for so-called “promotional material” like their amazing webisodes, videos on your website and downloads from iTunes. I can't bear to get onto NBC.com and watch videos knowing that the writers that made my favorite shows possible get nothing from it.

I strongly urge you reconsider this. Without writers, what would we have? Nothing. If this strike continues for as long as it may, your network will perish without a doubt. A network full of news, reality crap and sports is one that I and anyone I know would never...

Jenna Fischer and James Gunn
If you are anything like me, you were both shocked and upset when you heard that Jenna Fischer was seperating from her husband of six years, writer/director James Gunn. The couple released a statement, which was short and simple but revealed multitudes about their relationship. "We have chosen to separate. We are sorry for any pain this causes family and friends. The enthusiasm we have expressed for each other's lives, spirits and careers is real – we have been each other's cheerleader and friend during the past six years and continue to be so now and in the future."

When I began watching The Office, I wasn't interested in the lives of the actors who portrayed my favorite characters. To me, Michael, Jim, Pam, Dwight and other office workers were real people and it was easy to pretend I was watching a real life documentary series. However, Jenna Fischer caught my attention when I watched an interview she did on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She was quick and witty and almost as fun to watch as her alter-ego, Pam. After that, I was eager to learn more about her and watch any films she might have been in. As my love for The Office grew, my...

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...

Summary: This is a diary entry written from the point-of-view of one of the cameramen. Despite the fact that he is always in the offices of Dunder Mifflin Scranton, we never get to hear from him...until now. There are two entries, both pertaining to scenes from The Chair Model episode. There are no pictures because I wanted to preserve the feeling that you are reading a diary. Plus, I'm lazy.

DIARY ENTRY (date unknown):
10:30 a.m. -- Once again, I find myself with plenty of free time on my hands. For the last thirty minutes, Michael has been staring at a page in a catalog. Pam gave the catalog to him so he could pick out a new office chair and he appears to be enthralled with one specific item. It looks like he has a thing for the woman sitting in the chair, but I’m hoping that’s not the case. What kind of idiot would get a crush on a woman in a product catalog? Even though my hand is starting to cramp up, I keep the camera trained on Michael should anything interesting happen. I’m not foreseeing much.

As you all know, the Office is not like most shows on television. Most of you probably believe the Office is groundbreaking for its revitalization of the sitcom genre on American television but I’m betting you haven’t considered the other ways the Office has broken boundaries. Well, I have (mostly in the shower). I’ll be posting a series of essays (ramblings) on the subject.

First up is Oscar.

While gay men have become increasingly present in American television shows over the past fifteen years, none of them have been quite like Oscar. Oscar is not stereotypically flamboyant and shallow (Jack from “Will & Grace”). He does not have a glamorous life with a high paying job (Will from “Will & Grace”). He does not live a large metropolis (the men of “Queer as Folk,” Stanford and Anthony of “Sex and the City”). He isn’t the sidekick of some sassy single gal (Will, Stanford, Anthony). He isn’t closeted (Geoffrey Jellineck and Chuck Noblet of “Strangers with Candy”). He doesn’t go clubbing (men of “Queer as Folk”). He doesn’t appear to have any strange kinks (Mr. Slave and Mr. Garrison of “South Park”) but who...

I e-mailed this to NBC's website. I encourage everyone to boycott internet feeds of television episodes until the strike is over.

"Dear NBC,

For the past year, I have thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of watching episodes of my favorite shows on your website. I found it to be incredibly convenient, especially since I work in the evenings and occassionally have to miss an airing of one of my favorite shows (Heroes and The Office top that list, by the way). I was so pleased with your website that I was even willing to sit through those annoying commercials you force me to watch. And I ESPECIALLY loved the fact that you play the same commercial roughly 4 or 5 times per episode (at least on TV, we get some variety).

Then, I found out that the writers, actors, and directors... basically, the people who are responsible for those wonderful episodes that you've made so much money from, don't get a cut of any of the ad revenue from internet showings of their own creations.

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!!

I support WGA
Dear Independence Branch Staff,

We officially only have 2 episodes left of The Office as it stands. The Office set has shut down. After that we don't know when or if The Office will return. It all depends on how long the strike is. Let's HOPE that the writers get what they want so we get our show back.

To show OUR support for the writers DMI Independence is joining the picket line. If Michael Scott isn't working well neither AM I!!

The MORE support the producers see, the better our chances our that they will give the writers what they deserve.

I hope you will all join me in the DMI boycott! We need to stand up and rally together to fight for our show! That means we have to FIGHT for our writers back!

When the strike is over then we'll continue to have fun at DMI.

But this is something we can do to get a point across. I know we all love DMI but we won't have a DMI much longer anyways if this strike continues as it is.
