The Office Thursday on Give Me My Remote

February 22, 2007 by  


You may be shocked to hear this, but there isn’t a ton of new Office gossip to share this week. As always what I have I will give to you.

The Office Chat
As always, we will be watching tonight’s episode together LIVE on BuddyTV. We usually get started around 8pm EST so I hope you can stop by. We’re looking at 6 weeks until another new episode of The Office (damn you college basketball) so tonight’s chat should be a good one. Please join us. Click here to set a reminder for the Office chat.

Tonight on The Office…
michaljan.jpg“Cocktails” (8:30/7:30 c)
Michael and Jan attend a party at a Dunder Mifflin bigwig’s home, where they finally go public with their heretofore hushed romance. While at the party, Jim meets Karen’s ex. JJ Abrams directed this one so I’m fully expecting Dwight to become a Double Agent (Alias) , Creed to discover a new hatch (Lost), and a lot of angst between Jim/Pam/Karen/Roy (Felicity…but we don’t need JJ for that).

From the desk of Meredith Palmer…
Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer) on The OfficeWhether she knows it or not, Kate Flannery is keeping the spoiler addicts very busy dissecting every last word from her latest TV Guide blog. Check out what she has to say about the bat and that bag over her head last week, what it was like to have JJ Abrams direct, and what is in store for us in tonight’s episode. (Kate’s Blog) For more on Kate and her encounter with the bat check out a little Q&A from

The Spoiler Cocktail …
One part Jan and Michael, add two parts Jim and Karen, add a dash of Dwight and hint of the rest of the office and you get tonight’s spoiler cocktail. Check out scene from tonight’s show. As always I will warn you that it’s just not worth it, but I’ve seen them all so my words are hollow. I’m excited to tell you that for the remainder of the season you won’t have to go to another site to get the Office clips. They will be featured right here on GMMR. But for now check out these sites:

More Office Thursday after the jump

Rainn Wilson on SNL THIS WEEKEND!!
Rainn Wilson to Host SNLOur very own Rainn Wilson will be hosting SNL this Saturday!!. I’m not really sure what to expect other than that it’s going to be hilarious. If you’ve seen Rainn in other roles, then you know he is so much more than Dwight K. Schrute. I’ll try my best to have the best of Rainn’s sketches posted here on Sunday. Good luck!

Bloggity Blogs…
Kevin Malone Both Brian Baumgartner and Angela Kinsey have posted new MySpace blogs this week. They contain just enough teasers for tonight’s episode to keep me up at night. Neither give away too much, so you spoiler virgins are safe. Anyone else get way to excited when you see a new bog post from a cast member? Yeah, I thought so.

Blame Moonlighting…
Jim and Pam, Casino Night Jim and Pam have been dancing their dance for some time now. Some may say too long. So who do we blame? Greg Daniels? Tim and Dawn? Nah, it’s all because of Maddie and David. Is there such a thing as the “Moonlight” curse? (The Moonlighting Paranoia)

Melora Hardin on MAN Janichael JaMichael Michael & Jan…
John Krasinski, Jim Halpert on The OfficeMelora Hardin has starred in 14 pilots…14!! But now she’s a series regular on the best show on TV. Check out what Melora Hardin thinks about the other, other office romance people are talking about. And maybe find out why Michael is so very wrong, yet so right for Jan. (Office Affair)

Ode to Dwangela…
Angela KinseyThere are a lot of inter-office romancing these days. Jan & Michael, Kelly & Ryan, Jim & Karen, Pam & Roy (ugh), but it’s Angela and Dwight who have probably the strongest and the most stable relationship of them all. Bizarre, right? Angela Kinsey talked to TV Guide about her take on the twosome known as Dwangela (The The Perfect Couple?)

The Bluth Company vs. Dunder Mifflin…
willjohn.jpgopMatters takes a critical look at The Office and Arrested Development. Arguably two of the best comedies of all time, yet one is thrivingr while the other could never find an audience.They have a very similar brand of comedy, so what gives? (PopMatters)

Rashida Jones on Letterman TONIGHT
Rainn Wilson to Host SNLJust a reminder to set your TiVo so you can catch Rashida Jones’ appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman TONIGHT. Hopefully Rashida will be talking about the new pilot she is filming, you know after she and Jim break up in tonight’s episode. Sadly that wasn’t a spoiler, but don’t all the gurus tell you that if you want something to happen you have to write it down?

The Office Video of the Week…
I love this video. Come on Fancy New Beesly go after your man!! (Warning some strong language)

    Kate’s blog really gave me some hope for Jim and Pam. I hope I’m not reading too much into it. Go JAM. For real this time 🙂

    “all my words are hollow” HA! Yay for Office Thursdays on GMMR! This is my favorite thing about Thursday afternoons 🙂

    Thanks for the comments…they really are like gold. It’s funny, when people don’t leave comments I always think they aren’t reading it…which I know isn’t true. YAY! Office tonight!!

  5. Elena on February 22nd, 2007 3:19 pm

    Yay there will be JAM action!!! I wonder what Jenna Fischer has done to impress Kate so much!

  6. Brooke on February 22nd, 2007 3:40 pm

    Ahhh! What ever does Kate mean… ? I will not allow my mind to run away with me!

    And I agree with above, I look forward to Office Thursdays (we won’t talk about how often I check for it during the day before it’s posted)!

    Are you kidding??? I don’t know about any of you, but this post kept me busy for a solid hour at least. Thanks for the links to so many great blogs articles and interviews. I haven’t seen them anywhere else. I always look forward to TOT and this week did not dissapoint.

    TTYL – on tonight’s chat. I can’t wait, this looks to be an even better episode then last week, if that’s even possible.

    Sigh 🙁 I love Arrested Development. SUCH a good show. Makes me sad, really. That article, however, was wonderful. Definitely had some great points, so thanks for the read.

    On a happier note, I’m super excited for tonight’s episode! Can’t wait!

    But there’s one big difference between AD and Office.

    AD was 10x funnier, albeit a harder show to get into.

    And we all know George Michael and Maeby were Jim and Pam before Jim and Pam existed.
