This is just to say that I have decided the funniest show on television is NBC’s The Office. I watched two episodes last night, and man, that’s some entertaining stuff. It seems way too good to be on NBC. I wondered why HBO didn’t pick up on it, but Jim suggested that maybe it’s not enough of an “original series” for their taste. The cast is all perfect, and Steve Carell seems to have toned it down from last season, when I thought he was a little too over the top. Rainn Wilson deserves a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Yes, I know it’s TV, but he deserves one anyway, even if he did appear in House of 1000 Corpses. John Krasinski as the lovestruck cynic is really growing on me, as is Jenna Fischer, the object of his attentions.
Seriously, why are you not watching this show?
