Every time a TV remake gets announced, it’s predictably met with groans and complaints that there are no new ideas anymore – despite the dozens of new ideas coming out every year – but we should always remember the remakes that have indeed gone right. Here are 10 of them.
The early seasons of NBC’s The Office will go down as some of the best comedy produced during this era of television. Central to that humor was the antagonistic relationship between cool guy Jim Halpert and beet farmer / borderline psychopath Dwight Schrute.
It’s been over two years since The Office came to an end with a surprisingly touching and amusing finale, but this is about beginnings rather than endings. Check out the songs that The Office almost used as a theme song.
With news that the Bud Bundy-centered Married…With Children spinoff is rolling along ever so slowly, we decided to look back at 11 other TV standouts whose lives we’d love to catch up with, mostly with the original actors taking on the roles of course.
Ricky Gervais has had his fair share of funny characters over the years. From the iconic David Brent of BBC’s The Office to his latest title character of Netflix’s Derek, there’s always a certain quality to his characters that get us falling to the floor in laughter.
TV comedies have been full of amazing couples over the years that we’d love to have spent more time with, but then there are those that we can only assume are absolute horrors to live with. Here are ten couples that each personify in different ways all of the things that we would abhor in a dual-roommate system.
Earlier this week, Netflix subscribers all over the country got some bad news when it was announced that the streaming service would soon be losing a huge chunk of its British TV series lineup. It turns out that news wasn't entirely true.
A recent binge-watch of The Office brought to light several great appearances by actors who were either lesser known, or at the very least, on the rise to screen success when they first appeared on the NBC series. In fact, we found ten actors whose paths crossed with the Dunder Mifflin staff before they hit bigger fame with other roles.
Halloween is just around the corner. Each year, some of our favorite programs bring us Halloween-themed episodes. Luckily enough, a good chunk of these episodes come with clever costumes. This year we’ve culled some of our favorite Halloween episodes of our favorite TV programs to bring you a quiz highlighting our favorite referential costumes.
Even though we’d never want to actually deal with Ricky Gervais’ brilliantly aggravating David Brent on a daily basis, it certainly is a discomforting pleasure to have him back in our lives every so often. This may be our first peek into Brent’s upcoming transition to the silver screen, and there’s arguably no better way to experience this self-inflated buffoon than in song.
Valentine's Day isn't for everyone. Whether you’re single, sick of it all, or somewhere in between, finding a way to distract yourself on the overtly lovey-dovey day is a necessity. But we’re not proponents of the mentality that if you’re not in love you must be miserable and bitter instead. It’s silly, and stupid, and a waste of everyone’s time. Plus what sort of monster would encourage you to be unhappy? (Spoiler Alert: not me.)
I know some of you have dreamed of rocking Pan’s comfy-looking (but not fashion forward) sweater sets and have dreamed of the day that you could place your own Dundie Award on the corner of your desk. Now that The Office has finally ended its nine season run, the sets have been torn down and NBC Universal is not above trying to earn a little extra cash by auctioning off a ton of props via eBay, which could make those dreams come true.
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has The Office: Season 9 in the works, and if you’ve been waiting to cap off your collection or just want to own the season so that you can watch the epic finale whenever you want, you’ll be able to buy a copy on Blu-ray or DVD beginning on September 3.
When The Office was first debuted, pretty much nobody in the cast fit the bill as "famous"-- even Steve Carell wouldn't be a significant movie star until The 40-Year-Old Virgin opened a few months after The Office's premiere. But Carell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Rainn Wilson aren't the only now-famous names that were angling to get their parts
David Brent is back! Again! Ricky Gervais' beloved Office character is now offering guitar lessons to his fans. The video above popped up on Ricky Gervais' YouTube channel. Like Michael Scott, Brent is actually musically talented. But also like Michael Scott, he often doesn't know what he's talking about. What Brent lacks in actual wisdom, he makes up for in unintentional humor, and that's always what's worked so well for Gervais' character.
