The Office Thursday on Give Me My Remote

The Cast of The Office Gets Lost

Thursday – my favorite day of the week. And time for a little tradition we have hear at called “Office Thursdays”. This is when I try to catch you up on all the latest Office gossip. Y’all know The Office is my favorite show, and if I’m not careful I could be a few posts away from making this an Office fansite. I try to keep some of the best stuff for my Thursday posts. But by the time Thursdays roll around I feel like some of this is already old news. What do you think? Should we keep Office Thursdays going?

Make sure to check back throughout the day for more Office news. But for now, one we go…

This Week on The Office…
The Office - The InitiationYahooTV has 3 clips from this week’s episode entitled “The Initiation”. I have absolutely NO self control. I promised myself all week that I was going to avoid the Yahoo clips. Yeah, I lasted about 10 minutes. Damn you Yahoo! So between those three scenes, and the one that was featured before John Krasinski’s Ellen interview, I feel like I’ve already seen the whole show. Ok, I’m being a bit dramatic, but still. (Yahoo TV Clips)

Meredith Blogs and We Love Her For It….
Kate FlanneryEach and every Thursday Kate Flannery gives us the inside scoop on all things Dunder Mifflin. Not just what’s happening on set, but also a glimpse into what it’s like to be an actress on the BEST comedy on TV. This week is no exception, check out Kate’s TV Guide blog and learn what it’s really like in those SWAG suites, as well as what BJ Novak does while on set. (Kate’s TV Guide Blog)

A special thanks to Kate for giving a shout out in her blog. Make sure you leave her a comment over at TV Guide and thank her on behalf of GMMR.

“Anyway, I have a few more Office fan websites for you to checkout. I’ve mentioned before, but please checkout (It’s awesome.)…”

Angela Kinsey Fan Club…
Angela KinseyIf you are a regular GMMR reader then you know how much I adore Angela Kinsey. She seems to sweet, so nice and a world away from the”hot Christian chick” she plays on the show. That’s why I was so giddy to stumble across this TV Guide Q&A with her this morning. (Q&A with Angela Kinsey)
Another reason I love Ang, she’s SO good to her fans. Click here to listen to a message she left for fans on

Jenna & John – in style in InStyle
Jenna Fischer & John KrasinskiBoth Jenna and John are featured in InStyle magazine’s “What’s Hot” section. Find out who Jenna’s first celebrity crush was (same as mine by the way), and what desert would John take over the infamous jello? (Jenna in InStyle) (John in InStyle)

And make sure you check out the smokin’ hot pics of Jenna from Entertainment Weekly. Pam is pretty and all, but it still amazes me how they manage to downplay Jenna’s looks. Yeah, I have a bit of a girl crush, don’t you? (Jenna in EW)

Scranton, PA Loves The Office…
Scranton loves The Office The people of Scranton, PA don’t mind being the butt of the occasional joke, especially when the joke is coming from some of the sharpest and smartest comedy writers in the business today. Being the non-fictional town where the fictional Dunder Mifflin resides definitely has its perks. And the rumor is still out there that the cast is planning a trip to the actual Scranton to film a St. Patrick’s Day episode. If you need extras, I know a few bloggers that wouldn’t mind throwing on a little green for ya (even if it is whorish). (Scranton Meets “The Office”)

Why is Pam not with Jim?
Jim and Pam, The Office A question women around the world want to know. He’s sweet, adorable, funny, and he’s her lobster. So what’s keeping them apart. Well check out Jenna Fischer’s latest MySpace blog, and let her explain. Here’s a little taste:

“People want to know why she hasn’t called Jim all this time but you have to look at it realistically…she just got out of a 10 year relationship with her high school sweetheart. When she called off the wedding, Jim had already been living in Stamford. She has no idea what he is doing there. Maybe he has a girlfriend but even if he doesn’t, what are they going to do? Have a long distance romance? I’m sure she’s thought of it but it’s awkward. She’s not the type of person who takes a lot of initiative.”

SPOILER ALERT!!! Pics from “Diwali”…
In the November 2nd episode (“Diwali”) the kids leave the office and head out to experience some cultural diversity. Yeah, and we know how that worked out for them last time. has pics from the episode. And is that Pam flirting with another man? Let’s hope not. She’s got too much on her plate as it is 🙂 (“Diwali” sneek peek)

Steve Carell and Oscar Nunez are Animal Lovers…
I hope you all got a chance to check out the Night of Too Many Stars fundraiser that was on Comedy Central this past week. It was funny as all hell. One of the best skits of the night featured two of Dunder Mifflinites finest. Check out this hilarious clip featuring Steve Carell (Michael Scott) and Oscar Nunez (Oscar Martinez). Oh, and since Oscar is traveling with Gil in Europe for the next 3 months, this might be all we see of him for some time, so enjoy.

The Office LIVE Chat TONIGHT…
I missed last week’s LIVE Office chat over at, but GMMR reader and Office superfan, Ddker, was kind enough to fill in for me. But I’m back tonight and I’m sooo looking forward to watching “The Initiation” with you. If you’ve never come to our LIVE BuddyTV chats, check it out – it’s a fun new way to watch the episodes. And you never know who might just show up. CLICK HERE to set a reminder. And I hope to chat with you tomorrow night at 8pm EST.

    we ABSOLUTELY need to keep Office Thursdays going! I don’t care if it’s all old news, I just get excited seeing all kinds of good stuff lumped together.

    and yes, I’m developing a girl crush on Jenna Fischer. I keep seeing all these gorgeous pictures of her and I get really jealous. but then the jealousy passes and I just think she’s kick ass.

  2. Melody on October 19th, 2006 10:17 am

    There is something that feels so festive about Office Thursdays.

  3. Whirl on October 19th, 2006 10:20 am

    Oh we must keep Office Thursdays! I always come to GMMR first thing in the morning because it gets me even more pumped for the show later on. Plus I love all the news being compiled together, even though I’m a fan you still have things on there I knew nothing about.

    And I pretty much want Jenna F. to be my best friend.

  4. Jim Mosby on October 19th, 2006 10:33 am

    I love TOT’s 🙂 You keep the feeding my obsession haha.

    And, based on other comments and the content today, I cannot decide who I have a bigger crush on. Jenna or Angela. Hmmm. haha.

    GMMR, keep up with the Thursdays posts! I like to reread things sometimes and sometimes dont have time during the week to go thru alot of sites for THE OFFICE info. KEEP IT! 🙂

  7. samsmom on October 19th, 2006 11:53 am

    Please keep Office Thursdays going. There is always one or two articles that I miss throughout the week and TOT (as Jim Mosby calls it) is my way of catching up all all the good stuff. Plus, you always have the links to the preview clips, blogs, and articles. I could never get to most of those without TOT.

  8. Big Tuna on October 19th, 2006 12:21 pm

    Ya, GMMR! Keep up Office Thursdays! I don’t have much time to surf the web for Office stuff so my office “update” is only once a week or so. Who is on the cover of the inStyle that Jenna and John are in? I want to make sure i get the right one before i spend 5 bucks on a mag thats full of adds. lol.

  9. Clare on October 19th, 2006 12:33 pm

    Absolutely keep Office Thursdays! It’s the best spot to get the skinny on all things Office. It’s a great summary of everything that’s happened over the week so I know I’m up to date. It makes me very excited for 8:30…

  10. Cody on October 19th, 2006 12:46 pm

    Well, I’m just going to say what everyone else is saying, but, yeah, definitely keep this up. I’m in grad school, and don’t always get to see all the TV interviews, and I don’t have much time to check all the entertainment sites, but I always come here. It’s very nice having everything conveniently laid out for me to read. So, yeah, keep doing this. Uh, please.

  11. Em on October 19th, 2006 1:13 pm

    Who cares if we’ve heard some of it before?!? We Office-obsessed people can read it all over and over and still enjoy every reread as much as the first time. Office Thursdays forever!

  12. Sus on October 19th, 2006 1:21 pm

    I say keep the TOTs alive. You’re my one-stop shop for Office goodies. 🙂

  13. Post-it Thief on October 19th, 2006 1:55 pm

    I’m a huge fan of Office Thursdays. And yes, Jenna Fischer is pretty stunning and stunningly pretty-I’m insanely jealous. And whoever did the Lost/Office pic up top is pretty good at photoshop. 😉

  14. GMMR on October 19th, 2006 2:11 pm

    Well it looks like The Office Thursdays are going to stick around (oh sorry..’TOT’).

    Glad you liked the photshopped pic.

  15. Jim Mosby on October 19th, 2006 2:47 pm

    LOL…oops I did not mean to add an another term to the GMMR lexicon. That’s what I get for being too lazy to type more. I like The Office Thursday better haha.

  16. Whirl on October 19th, 2006 3:02 pm

    Hey I just noticed something…that I am sure everyone has already noticed but…in the pictures from upcoming episode “Diwali” Pam has her hair down.


    Is it wrong that this excites me?

  17. mg714 on October 19th, 2006 6:04 pm

    Great Office news as always GMMR. Can’t wait for tonight’s episode either (esp. the JAM reconnection), but I’ll miss the live airing due to a work event. I’ll definitely be watching it ASAP, though. Have a great chat tonight.

  18. Mel aka foggy on October 19th, 2006 6:38 pm

    I live for Office Thursdays. Seriously.

  19. Kris on October 19th, 2006 7:50 pm

    Don’t be a saboteur! Keep The Office Thursdays! I look forward to it 🙂

  20. a fan on October 19th, 2006 8:35 pm
