The Office Thursday on Give Me My Remote

March 22, 2007 by  

NBC’s The Office

I was debating whether or not to write an Office Thursday post as The Office isn’t on tonight, and I’m pretty busy with my real job today. But in the end, it wouldn’t really feel like Thursday without it, so what the heck…here’s a mini Office Thursday for ya. Here’s a taste of what we’re talking about today:

  • Kate Flannery is blogging again, and we love it
  • Jenna Fischer is naked again, and we love it
  • The Dunder Mifflinites go from the small screen to the big screen
  • Why is everyone talking about Rashida Jones?
  • Sneak peek pics from “The Negotiation”
  • The Office video of the week
  • Oh and don’t forget that Rainn Wilson will be on “Ellen” tomorrow…set the TiVos

One note before we get started. I received a bunch of email from people wanting a copy of The Improper Bostonian with B.J. Novak on the cover. If you are still interested, email me at info(at)givememyremote(dot)com.

Tonight on The Office…
Jim and Pam There’s no new episode this week. Not even a repeat or a newpeat. So what’s an Office fan to do? How about you break out your DVDs and rewatch a classic. Perhaps “Hot Girl” from S1 or “The Secret” from S2. I’m personally going to concentrate on rewatching episodes that remind me that Jim and Pam were friends once. If you’re going to watch some oldies but goodies, let us know which ones and why.

From the Desk of Meredith Palmer…
Kate Flannery Kate Flannery is back with another TV Guide blog. This week Kate talks about some of the stuff going on in her life when she’s not on the show. You know, it’s very similar to my life actually. Going to movie premieres, having a TV show taped in my building. Getting dressed up and giving away awards. Just like my life. (Kate’s Blog)

Hollywood Press TV sat down with Kate Flannery for a 2-part on camera interview. This is great. Part 1|Part 2

Jenna Fischer Naked, Again…
Jenna Fischer, Wired Magazine
Well that certainly got your attention. Talk about Fancy New Beesly. Jenna Fischer bares all but covers everything for the latest cover of Wired Magazine. I don’t know, but something tells me that they airbrushed Jenna a bit too much. It almost doesn’t even look like her. But the Wired guys know how to get our attention, I’ll give ’em that much (story and pictures at The Office LJ community)

Lights…Camera…Dunder Mifflin…
John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson and Jenna Fischer The employees of the Scranton Branch have been working overtime lately but they are probably getting paid handsomely for it. Most of the cast have been pulling double duty and moonlighting as movie stars. Lucky for us, we can see our favorites on the big screen soon. (‘Office’ stars pad their resumes)

Rainn Wilson in The Last Mimzy
Premieres on March 23rd (see it this weekend) – In case you missed it yesterday, here are some pics of the cast of The Office at The Lazy Mimzy premiere

Jenna Fischer in Blades of Glory
Premieres on March 30th – Click the link above and have some fun over at the official site for the movie. They have one of those games where you can upload pics and create mini-trailers. I had a little fun with this one. So here’s the new trailer for “Blades of Glory” starring David Denman and John Krasinski (I tried to use Jenna and John, but Jenna is just way too hot to be a guy)

Blades of Glory mock trailer

John Krasinski (and Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner & Mindy Kaling) in License to Wed
Premieres on July 4, 2007

It’s a bit early to be talking about this one, but last night was a sneek peak and I’ve been getting emails all morning from people saying that they really enjoyed the movie and thought John was excellent in it. Of course he was. Ok, really it’s just an excuse for me to share this new photo from the movie. I think that”License to Wed” should have a game like “Blades of Glory” where you can replace your face with the characters…perhaps in a wedding scene? Just a sugestion.

Ed Helms is a Souther Gentleman…
Ed Helms Andy Bernard might be a hysterically annoying man, but Ed Helms is adorable and oh so likable. He’s heading back home to Atlanta for a little fund raising this weekend. In this interview, that I found via, Ed talks about his role on The Office, his time spent on The Daily Show and why, as the newbie, he has to keep his mouth shut. (Andy Bernard Returns to Atlanta)

Rashida is Bringing Sexy Back…
Rashida Jones picsAs I mentioned earlier this week, Rashida Jones was named one of TV’s Sexiest Stars by TV Guide. In the magazine that’s on news stands now Rashida shows us just why she made the list. The girl in smokin’. Click here to head over to Office Tally to see the pics for your self. Some guy out there (some random guy…ha ha) is pretty damn lucky.

Seems there was a TV Guide party to honor the sexy people, and Rashida and some friends were in attendance.

Another Thursday-TV head-turner was next in our sights: The Office’s Rashida Jones, who in her TV Guide pics is working a coy smile and curve-hugging shorts. Who would Jones — the daughter of Peggy Lipton and Quincy Jones — nominate for next year’s sexy list? “Rainn Wilson. He’s got a sexy thing about him, he really does, the more people see him out of Dwight,” she said. “He’s got a sexy-nerd thing going on.”

Wilson — as well as Melora Hardin, and Steve Carell, and John Krasinski — earned the vote of Office mate/ celebrity blogger Kate Flannery, who was delighted to see Jones repping Dunder-Mifflin in the special issue. Flannery shared that her hiatus plans include speaking at her high-school alma mater’s Career Day. “I’m very excited!” she beamed. “A few years ago they probably wouldn’t have wanted an actress/waitress to come and talk to [students].” (Source)

SPOILER ALERT: Pics from “The Negotiation”…
The NBC press department recently released these promo pics from “The Negotiation” which will air on April 5th. From the looks of the shots it seems that some are from the episode while others are candids. Click to enlarge.

The Office Video of the Week…
Changing it up a bit today. I’ve been watching the UK version a lot lately, and I couldn’t help but share this video of the original Jim & Pam…Tim & Dawn. WARNING! For those of you who haven’t seen the British version you might want to skip this one as it has major spoilers.

    Why does that baby look like a 50 year old British man?

    I think I’ll be rewatching Booze Cruise and Casino Night.

    Remember those Jim*? Never ever ever give up?

    Yay! Office Thursday!!

  6. Johanna on March 22nd, 2007 3:28 pm

    That UK ending is perfect. I just hope we won’t have to wait years for Jim and Pam to get together. I can see so many good storylines about them 2 being together and dealing with different issues, so I don’t think it would kill the show to get those 2 somehow together 🙂

    OK, this is the third time I tried to post a comment and if this one doesn’t work, I’m going to have to give up.

    Anyway, if this is what you consider a ‘mini’ Office Thursday, I wonder what your idea of a Major OT would be, GMMR. Thanks for all the great links. It keeps us going during the dry spell.

    That Blades of Glory trailer was disturbing on so many levels. Especially since you see the bodys turning, but the heads stay put. Since Michael Scott isn’t going to be making me cring this week, I think that did the job just as well.

    LTW pic, John with the double snuggly – too adorable for words, but I couldn’t resist commenting.

  11. Lindsey on March 22nd, 2007 4:41 pm

    I’m going to watch “The Dundies” for some major JAM action!

  12. NeverEnoughJam on March 22nd, 2007 4:44 pm

    Thanks so much for those pics from The Negotiation; David D is looking good as always! And yeah, that Tim/Dawn video is SO sweet! But that Blades of Glory video you made? Sick, woman. So, so sick. 😀

  13. samsmom on March 22nd, 2007 4:46 pm

    I will be having a S1 marathon. 3 hours of The Office is a great way to spend a Thursday night.

    Regarding the Rashida honor in TV Guide- there is no denying she is an attractive woman, but I am so thrown my this girl’s fashion sense. When she is being dressed for a photo shoot she looks great. In pictures where she is dressed casually for something (like the jeans and jacket look for the Mimzy premiere, for example) she looks good. But when it comes to more formal events- like the Golden Globes or the Paley event or even this TV Guide Sexy Party, her choices (or those of her stylists) leave me stratching my head. She always wears something ill-fitting or shapeless or just some plain ugly dress, like at the Oscars. I am by no means a fashion diva, but I just wondered if anyone else had noticed or felt similarly about her choices.

  15. Christina on March 22nd, 2007 6:13 pm

    OK I just realised that the brain teaser David is telling Gareth is one of the ones from The Initiation!!! Man that took me a while.

  16. Dani on March 22nd, 2007 6:15 pm

    No Office tonight does suck, but it does give a great excuse for pulling out the DVDs (as if I needed one). I think I might watch The Booze Cruise and The Secret. Yes…those feel like good choices 🙂

    I just recently bought and watched The UK version of The Office. I’m partial to Jim and Pam, but Tim and Dawn were very cute as well. The ending is perfect as well.

  17. CrazyGringa on March 22nd, 2007 6:42 pm

    Ok, so that video of BOG w/John and David is hilarious!! I am so going to try that when I get home!

    Thanks for putting up this Office Thursday! I love them and this is going ot help me get through an Office-Less Thursday.

    So here go the Oldies but Goodies that I am going to watch tonight: Michael’s Birthday and The Dundies

    First Kristen Bell, now Jenna Fischer

    You have officially moved from the feeds to my favourites (although you still will be in the feeds so I can stay up to date)

  20. Melanie on March 22nd, 2007 10:39 pm

    Thanks for the UK clip! I just love that ending. Every time I hear Back for Good a tear up cuz I know what’s coming. So perfect. There might be hope for Jim and Pam yet. I only hope it will be as sweet as Tim and Dawn’s ending.

  21. BeckySue on March 24th, 2007 10:34 pm

    Love the UK ending. Great way to go…let’s hope that NBC goes that direction!

    License to Wed had a sneak peak???? I’m sooo jealous! Someone needs to put up a little synopsis for us curious and anxious fans!! PLEASE???

    The new Office video that came out today…HOLY COW!!! Is anyone else ready for April 5th!!!

    Oh and I watched Drug Testing and Conflict Resolution. Good episodes…

    Welp, thanks for the Office Thursday Post. Can’t get enough of that OFFICE!
