Rainn Wilson SNL Opening Monologue

So I knew Rainn Wilson was hosting SNL last night, and I never watch the show because it’s undoubtedly gone downhill over the years, as I’ve mentioned before….but this opening monologue I found very funny, and they managed to pick the actors that really represented characters on the show.  It was great…..I wish they wouldn’t have spent so much time on that cold open though.  I was bored enough in the first 5 minutes to turn it off…luckily I didn’t.

Any other The Office fans get a kick out of it?   Video below….

The Office 3.17- “Cocktails”

Filed under: Battlestar Galactica, Television, The Office — flutieman07 @ 8:32 pm

All I can say is that The Office has consistently gotten better and better each week.  Tonight was especially great, and the ending just totally sets up a stellar last five episodes (or however many there are, because the finale is an hour and counts as two).

Highlights of the episode:

Michael reintroduced himself by saying he and Jan were lovers….priceless.

Jim and the CFO shot hoops because they both clearly didn’t like those parties.

The reference to Battlestar Galactica….now that I actually watch it, it’s that much funnier!

Jan telling Michael not to cry when talking about their relationship….lol.

So, how many of those guys did Karen really date?  I think the first one was real.  All the others were clearly jokes.   Just sets up a reason for Jim to leave her.

The rest of the office at the bar was a great set-up.  It was funny to watch that drinking game….Got some good screen time for Creed as usual…he’s always funny, even if it’s only a line at a time.

They really need to cut the Toby-Pam stuff….that’s just creepy to me.  I’m glad Pam gave that stuffed duck back.  Back off Toby!

The payoff…seeing Roy flip out and totally lose it, and Pam broke up with him!  I knew it wouldn’t last,  and honestly, I’m glad they turned it back so soon.  I was touched again that Pam was trying to tell Roy what happened and that it was over, but he freaked out, because he was drunk, before she finished.  I’m sensing she’ll realize Jim is a much better guy than Roy.

Those last words really set up what should be an exciting run to the season finale.

“I’m gonna kill Halpert….”

Now, how long to wait until the next episode?  ::sigh::

Thursday Look-Ahead

Filed under: Grey's Anatomy, Nightly Previews, Survivor, The Office — flutieman07 @ 10:33 pm

I know it’s early, but Thursday is one of my two top nights for TV, and here’s a look at what’s on and what you should be watching.

The Office-“Cocktails” Michael and Jan go public with their romance….That’s the extent I know because I’m avoiding spoilers at all costs.  I just hope Jim and Pam have a hint of conversation….all I ask for is a little hint of Jam…it’s slowly building up to most likely yet another season-ending cliffhanger.  Let’s hope they get it right this time!

Survivor- Easily my favorite of the past few seasons so far….I have the feeling someone from the high and might Moto tribe gets really sick by the looks of it.

Grey’s Anatomy– The conclusion of the three-part arc that will answer whether Meredith lives or dies….Her life currently hangs in the balance, but somehow I think she’s safe….possibly a shocker death in store that we don’t know about?!  Who knows….I know I’m watching though.
