  1. Good analysis. But the "I've been working here fifteen years and you can't even bother to take my calls" aspect of Michael's complaint IS the sort of occasional moment of truth he tends to stumble on. Despite the fact that it's not strictly part of the CFO's job description they obviously have a working relationship and he should have been straightforward about the situation irregardless of the fact that Michael is Michael. The Office exists in its own cozy sitcom pseudo-reality (which is what makes it so fun when a normal person such as Elba stops by) but even there it seems obvious to me tha
  2. I actually didn't find this episode too funny. The sight of characters on the floor for one reason or another is usually the sort of thing which would induce automatic laughter but I just wasn't feeling it. Oh well.
  3. "BOOM ROASTED!" That was new? Cool. I thought I just hadn't noticed it up until now.
  4. Very little to laugh about this week and it was something of a letdown for the whole triangle deal. Still, the recent casting spoilers are something to look forward to.
  5. I'm really glad the people behind Doctor Who cast Tilda Swinton in the title role.
  6. Eh. I liked it a little but couldn't be bothered to watch it all the way through to the end. Apparently I missed some sort of giant Cyberman mecha filled with orphan children smashing up London town so I might go back and look at the rest of it sometime in the faraway future.
  7. That sounds good. But would he really do that? It seems like the kind of thing he actually wouldn't do these days because of his other TV show.
  8. Eh. Mediocre episode. I liked it when the girl from Reno 911 showed up, though. Was anyone else expecting Tatooine? THE ANDROMEDA GALAXY DOESN'T EVEN MAKE SENSE.
  9. What? She'd be great. I honestly can't imagine a single other woman on the planet who'd make a better Doctor than her.
  10. I knda like the idea of Tilda Swinton as The Doctor. When they reach the limit on regenerations they should just go all the way and have a different actor play the character once every two or three episodes. Shove in whatever silly explanation you like --- he gets the accumulated lifespan of all the dead Time Lords or something like that.
  11. I Phyllis so very much. They should make a spin-off series where Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration and her just go around the country solving mysteries. I wonder if there were a few deleted scenes there detailing Pam's interactions at Corporate HQ leading in to David Wallace's visit.
  12. I took the episode's ending sequence of dialogue as an indication everything was completely all right with them and they were just as connected as ever.
  13. Ryan's one joke in this episode totally cracked me up. Actually, that whole conference room scene was the best part. Phyllis & Stanley high-fiving at the end though. LOL. Am I right? LOL. LOL Yes.
  14. This was the first time an extra-long episode really worked for me. Probably because it wasn't just two plots smooshed together. Amy Ryan (Holly/Hollie) is so good. I love that they continued the "Kevin is special" gag from last year and ran it out to a fantastic close. The show's got a history of letting good stuff fall by the wayside (Creed pretending to be young, Andy shunned by Dwight) once an episode is done so it's nice to see a joke like that get a proper finish. Stanley's private BLACK POWER! moment and Phyllis' deadpan statement of "Probably my jugs" got the biggest laughs from m
  15. Am I alone in thinking Red Son would actually be a perfect choice for another animated film?
  16. What? Superman doesn't compromise on his moral principles. That's what makes him Superman. Do I have to repost my three-act treatment for a Superman film now? Is it in this thread or somewhere else?
  17. Yes. Exactly. Except it's not "just because". That's precisely what crazy is. I think people call this man crazy because he got up and stabbed some guy for no apparent reason and then beheaded him and then ate parts of him and then paraded the severed head around. This is troubling behavior. Any definition of the word crazy which does not cover this sort of thing is, well, crazy. Any attempt to either explain or justify this behavior with ideas like "WE ARE ALL ANIMALS" or "I KNOW FACTS ABOUT CHARLES MANSON" is also pretty crazy but that's something I feel more comfortable attributing to p
  18. It's a weird sort of situation in this case and it's certainly not as severe as the example you just cited. For one thing the other passengers apparently cornered the guy on the bus and then tried to hold him off with, like, planks of wood and other random stuff. So there was some sort of belated heroism or call to action or whatever. TRUE STORY TIME! A gang fight broke out in a parking lot by the local pizza shop and my sister totally ran in there and saved the day. But then she was late coming home with the family's pizza order since she had to stay and give a statement to the police. So
  19. Because a guy with big knife is really scary --- they were Canadian.
  20. Did any of this lead to a guy decapitating another guy on a bus? You seemed to say that this guy was either an example of pure evil or the result of immoral factions within a culture or government. I can understand the first position but not the second. Granted.
  21. Immoral factions within a culture? Government brainwashing? Whaaaah? I think it's pretty clear this man is insane. A couple of clues : 1) He stabbed some guy 80 times. 2) Then he hacked off the guy's head. 3) Then he, umm, "displayed" it. I'm no doctor but that man is koo-koo for breakfast cereal.
