The Office: Finale: Episode 24/25 Season 9 – TV Review
That's it, and that's all for The Office. After nine seasons, it's time to say goodbye to all our friends at Dunder-Mifflin Scranton branch. The 200th and final episode of the venerable NBC series wraps it up with a lot of comedy, plenty of guest stars and, most importantly, one last round of memories from a great TV show. Check below for the full (and...

The Office Season 9 Episode 1 The New Guys TV Review
It's the beginning of the end for The Office. The NBC comedy returns from its summer hiatus with its ninth season premiere. In its first attempt (last season) to recapture the magic in a post-Steve Carrell Office, the show suffered. Even with the addition of the excellent James Spader - out after one season, along with Mindy...

'The Office' Is Finally, Mercifully Coming To An End In 2013

The Office Season 8 Episode 24 Free Family Portrait Studio – TV Review
After a steady decline in quality, writing, and humor of the past few seasons, the departure of series anchor Steve Carell, and the imminent departure of Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, and Rainn Wilson (who is getting a Dwight spin-off), no one would be too surprised if NBC finally did what had to be done, took the long-running The Office back...

'The Office' Is Losing Even More Cast Members

The Office Season 8 Episode 10 Christmas Wishes – TV Review
After losing Steve Carell in 2011, it was pretty much the beginning of the end for the long running sitcom, The Office.  First, there was news that showrunner Paul Lieberstein (also known as HR rep Toby) and Rainn Wilson were bailing to make a Dwight Schrute spin-off, then Mindy Kaling announced a new project (conveniently titled The...

The Office Season 8 Episode 24 Free Family Portrait Studio – TV Review
It's not official, but it looks as if NBC will go with The Office for a ninth - and probably final - season. But there's still the business of wrapping up season eight, which is best described as inconsistent. It's always good to end on a high note. The Office did no such thing with "Free Family Portrait Studio". There's a few laughs and sweet moments, but...

The Office Season 8 Episode 20 Welcome Party – TV Review
After about a month on ice, "The Office" returns to the NBC line-up with an Ed Helms-directed episode that delivers plenty of laughs. With the fate of the series still unknown, the first-rate "Welcome Party" begins the season eight home stretch of five, all-new episodes, which could be the once loved/still loved show's last.

The Office Season 8 Episode 15 Tallahassee – TV Review
"The Office" heads south to Florida as Dwight and his hand-picked office team prepare for their special project in Tallahassee. The return of Todd Packer and the sassy Nellie Bertam, last seen trying to score Michael Scott's old job, provide a nice, comedic spark to an already funny episode. "Tallahassee" keeps the momentum going from last week's equally strong...

The Office Season 8 Episode 13 Jury Duty – TV Review
A smattering of laughs and a Dwight-Angela plot twist highlight a rather uneven episode of "The Office". Not even the brief return of cute and loveable Pam could jazz things up Thursday night. Nice work from some of the cast aside, "Jury Duty" failed to keep the momentum going from the previous episode. Check below for the complete review...

The Office Season 8 Episode 10 Christmas Wishes – TV Review
It's that time again for another installment of the big holiday party at "The Office", a time-honored theme that has produced lots of laughs for the series over the years. The first post-Michael Scott holiday party was just as goofy and funny as previous holiday-themed episodes. Perhaps not as legendary as "A Benihana Christmas" from season three, but still darn...

The Office Season 8 Episode 6 Doomsday – TV Review
It's a race against the clock on the latest episode of "The Office." Dwight's attempt to help the office cut down on mistakes just might get the whole staff fired. Arguably the best episode thus far of the young season, the strength of the top-notch ensemble cast was on full display Thursday night. Check out the complete review below…

The promotional team behind Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Nazi epic, Inglourious Basterds just stepped up their marketing game in my book. Three new posters have been released for the film and boy do they look good! Each image reads, "Once Upon a Time in Nazi Occupied France." Nice tag-line to accompany such gritty images. Each poster features a blood soaked weapon...
