The Office – Fun Run (Thursday Sept 27)

WOOOO HOOOO!!!! Finally The Office is back on television! This show is great…what awesome writing. Now basically we were all just waiting this whole summer wondering if Pam and Jim were really going to get together. Last season’s finale gave us this tiny little morsel of sweetness between the two lovebirds and this episode gave us the whole cookie! The secret relationship storyline is not unlike the path of Monica & Chandler on FRIENDS. I think it is a great way to test the waters of this new relationship while keeping the tension and mystery of the previous seasons. I am hoping that the writers will keep those two together for a while. Yay for Jim and Pam DATING!
The episode was fantastic, dont get me wrong here, but for some reason it just seemed a bit off. I have to say although I love getting extra time with the Office crew during the 1 hour episodes, it really just is so much stronger as a half hour show. This episode even seemed as if it could be split in half and made into two successful episodes. What was with Angela? She was not nearly as snarky and prim in this episode. I know she was stressed about her cat, but come on…really? It just felt a little bit off. I was hoping this season would bring a strength to the Dwight/Angela relationship to ease the tension from the Jim/Pam relationship, but we will have to see. I am rooting for more Kelly/Ryan interaction as well. Those two crack me up! So great. Michael was classic Michael this week. Best line of the episode: “Im not superstitious, but I am a little stitious”

Prison Break – Call Waiting (Monday Oct 1)

Im still surprised at how much I am into this show. I am a recent fan and have been catching up on the episodes by dvd and itunes. Tonight was my first “real-time” episode. It is a great show that keeps me on the edge of my seat at all times. I have to say I am a little bit worried about how this season is going to go. I really enjoyed how the first season was Michael with all the answers, second was Michael and Lincoln thinking on their feet and now the third season is really both of them with no answers and no allies. I think that Lincoln is so much stronger when he is able to work with Michael. I am also worried about Michael…he is really starting to become the “tortured soul” constantly being plagued by thoughts of Sara. I really have loved watching their relationship through the previous seasons and the unknown status of Sarah Wayne Callies (actress that plays Sara) makes me nervous. I hope if she doesnt plan to come back for the season (does anyone know if there is an official word about her coming back or not?) that they will at least give us a strong episode to end her storyline. Its just that Michael almost wont have anything to live for if she is not there. So far this season she has really been the drive behind his motivation to break out of Sona. I know he cares about LJ, but I really wonder if he will find motivation to break out if she is killed off. Lincoln has had all charges dropped so….i just dont know. Thoughts?

As usual the show left us with many tiny clues as to the next episode. I knew Sucre wouldnt be able to abandon the brothers. He is a key element to the show. Lincoln has just opened some sort of mystery present from Susan B Anthony (ummm hello? whats with the name? Like how before there was a character Benjamin Franklin…come on.) What is in the box?????

    If you like ‘The Office,” you’d probably really like ‘Break A Leg.’ It’s sorta like The Office set in Hollywood – TV world.

    It’s totally free on-line.
