Mo' Money, Mo' Problems: NBC Launches "Office" Webisodes

Missing The Office?

After a sub-par season (and one hell of a great season finale guest starring Amy Ryan), I didn't think I'd be missing NBC's once-great comedy series The Office, but I am feeling nostalgic for the good old days. I'm still hopeful that the series' writers can pull it together (as evidenced by the aforementioned finale episode "Goodbye, Toby") and lure me back to what was one of my favorite series.

In the meantime, NBC has just launched the second webisode series based around The Office, this time entitled "Kevin's Loan." Like before, it doesn't feature the series' lead actors (the core four, anyway) but if you're craving a trip to Scranton, here's the first installment ("Money Trouble"):



Oh, Kevin, when will you learn? I'm seeing now that there's a reason why it was so easy for Holly Flax (Amy Ryan) to believe that he's, er, special.

That wasn't half bad! Oscar's Kevin impression was awesome.

Usually I love being from Canada, but I'm getting pretty frustrated seeing the message "This clip is not available in your location" more and more. Sucks.

This webisode was so-so but the "Kevin is special" storyline from the finale was definitely hilarious!

Oscar's Kevin imitation was awesome.

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

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

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
