Missing NBC's "The Office"? How About a New Promo, Then?

It's only a month or so until the season premiere of one of Televisionary's favorite television series, The Office! I don't know about you but I cannot wait for the Scranton-set mockumentary comedy to return (I've kept busy this summer replaying past episodes and making wish lists for Season Four).

While you'll have to wait a few more weeks for the season premiere, here's a new promo from NBC to tide you over until The Office returns with new episodes (including four one-hour installments up front), just in case you forgot where things left off last season:



The Office Season Four kicks off Thursday, September 27th, at its new time of 9 pm ET/PT. In the meantime, you try getting that song out of your head. And, NBC, please--for the love of Dunder-Mifflin--no more promos with heartfelt montages of Jim and Pam!

Awesome!!! I love the scene with Ryan dumping Kelly and can't wait for next season. Will Jan still be in it now that she's fired?

I second the notion of no more promos with "heartfelt montages of Jim and Pam." The cheesy music alone made me want to hurl. I love Jim and Pam but they are not the end all and be all of this show and hopefully like you suggested they will take more of a backseat next season.

I'm ready for the Office right now goshdarnit.

While I've been watching the reruns all summer, I'm itching for new episodes of The Office now. A month is still a long time off in my book!

A little piece of me has been missing, and I didn't realize it until just now.

Enough with that awful Mika song already and with the sappy Jim and Pam scenes. I like The Office because it makes me laugh and not because it makes me vomit.

I can't wait for Season Four but I wish the promo had some new scenes in it from next season and not all stuff we've already seen.

That song just seems so out of place for an "Office" promo. I can't wait for Season 4 but agree that the show is much more than a Jim-and-Pam-Will-They-or-Won't-They Extravaganza. The show would be nothing without Steve Carell's extraordinary talent!

Yeah, that promo was a little sloppy. What was with that bizarre music choice anyway? And the audio pause on Michael's one-liners was mildly amusing the first time only.

Sheesh, enough with the JAM sap. Yes, Jim and Pam are the element that gives the show its mainstream appeal, but come on. There are so many better storylines to consider. I want a Toby promo, dammit. And the writers really need to write Meredith as an actual character and not just as a sexually-frustrated alcoholic [which is funny, but doesn't do the actor justice.]

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian

The Daily Beast: "How The Killing Went Wrong"

While the uproar over the U.S. version of The Killing has quieted, the show is still a pale imitation of the Danish series on which it is based. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, "How The Killing Went Wrong," in which I look at how The Killing has handled itself during its second season, and compare it to the stunning and electrifying original Danish series, Forbrydelsen , on which it is based. (I recently watched all 20 episodes of Forbrydelsen over a few evenings.) The original is a mind-blowing and gut-wrenching work of genius. It’s not necessary to rehash the anger that followed in the wake of the conclusion last June of the first season of AMC’s mystery drama The Killing, based on Søren Sveistrup’s landmark Danish show Forbrydelsen, which follows the murder of a schoolgirl and its impact on the people whose lives the investigation touches upon. What followed were irate reviews, burnished with the “burning intensity of 10,000 white-hot suns

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season
