Ready For The Office Premiere Tomorrow?

Tom Petty's been reminding us all summer that "the waaaaitttting is the hardest part." It's been a long, relatively unfunny summer and I'm ready to welcome The Office back into my life.

Here's some updates to get you ready for season five (Sidenote: who knew they'd make it this far?)

  • The New York Times did a really interesting piece on Office writer/producer/actor B.J. Novak. Novak's risen to fame almost as quickly as his character Ryan. Hopefully he won't crash and burn and end up in white collar prison too.
  • Just a few weeks back, New York Magazine did an even better story on Ed Helms. Helms and his character may be more complex than meets the eye. And did you know he really did sing acapella in college?
  • Amy Ryan is returning to Dunder-Mifflin in her role as Holly Flax, the new HR assistant. She talks about it to Kristin Dos Santos about it here.
And if you haven't seen any of the previews for tomorrow's episode, you can check all of them out over at Officetally, the best fansite on the planet.

Come back tomorrow so we can dish about the premiere!

This premiere better be good, cause sea 4 was way down last year and they need to come back strong in season 5!

This was such a good premiere. It almost seems like they're laying it on too thick, though. Maybe it's just me. But they didn't lay it on too thick...was the proposal. It was so modest and unexpected! Loved it!

I also loved finally being able to see who won the Tide To Go talking stain contest. Did you get a chance to see that? I work for Tide and we had a contest to see who could best spoof the ad. The winner was aired during the premiere of the Office last night. The ad that got the most votes was by John Michael Sy. His ad was called "Tide Stain Rap" and you can see it (and the other finalists) over at And check Sy out, too!,CST-FIN-lew25.article

I hope it's okay that I commented on your blog -- I appreciate it! If you have any questions, feel free to email me!
