Re: The Office is back!

Best show on TV, bar none. I thought last night was good but not great. Some funny lines, but overall seemed to be kind of out of line with what the show is usually about. SO awkward though! I've been to dinner parties like that...

Used to love Scrubs, but it's really tanked recently.

I feel the same way about Scrubs and that sucks.
I think the problem is that they have turned JD into a caricature of himself, much like The Simpsons writers have done with Homer. The characters are so out there now that they're not really relatable.

Seasons 1-4 were awesome, I think it started going downhill with Season 5, and 6 and 7 are just mediocre.

You are absolutely right - everything is so overdone now. What they did so well with "real" yet quirky characters early on is just chaos now. They've also reached the point where it's obvious they're digging for new content - they're attendings now, getting married, everyone is having first or second children, it's just ridiculous.

The whole idea of the show was this quirky young doctor trying to figure the job out - it's really lost it's way lately.

yeah it's a real shame. I'm not a doctor but some of my best friends are doctors and they've always said Scrubs is the most realistic doctor/hospital show on television (I don't know if they'd say the same anymore though). Rumor is it's coming to ABC next year for its final season. I wish they'd just let it end though.

30 Rock is really good though. And I definitely need to start watching The Office. How does it compare to the British one for those that have seen both?

Yeah a good show. But one of my favorites is coming back to TV, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Very very underrated show.

I thought this was the last season? I heard Braff wanted out.

I almost started a thread about 30 Rock. That is far and away the best comedy on TV right now. Possibly the best since Seinfeld. I haven't watched season 2 yet, but hopefully they kept it up.

I watched the British version first, and I was disappointed by season 1 of the American version. However, the American version has just gotten better and better, and now I would say they are on par, but just a bit different.

Also, it's hard to compare the two, since the British season is (literally) 6 episodes long. I would put the best 6 episodes of any season of the American version against the British version.

That was the plan, and yes. But apparently there is some feeling that making this the final season would be incomplete since episodes were missed due to the writers strike.

Season 2 is even better.

I knew it was essentially just one season but I had no idea it was just 6 episodes

Re: The Office is back!

I've never seen 30rock. don't know anything about it. I don't watch a lot of tv, but the office is probably the best comedy on tv. my wife wanted to hate it at first, but its her fav. show as well. we just started watching the re runs on tbs a few months ago.

I lauged so hard I cried when the cold blonde (can't remember her name) smashed the ice cream cone against the prius...

and in one of the re-runs the other day, when dwight went up to toby and asked him what the clitoris is.... LOLOLOL....

Huh...hadn't heard that. Everything I've heard said this was the final season for Scrubs.

30 Rock is excellent, but not as good as The Office in my opinion. Personally I thought the British version of The Office was miserable. Maybe I just don't get British humor or something, but it was decidedly not funny. Steve Carrell is also head and shoulders above anyone on the British cast - he's just fantastic in that role.

Another good show to catch up on is Chuck. I wasn't expecting much, but I ended up really liking it. Funny and interesting story line, and the blonde spy chick is hawt.

Watch with Kristin - <i>Scrubs</i>: Where Things Stand

I've watched Chuck a couple of times, not bad. Not bad at all.

Re: The Office is back!

Other than Pam drilling the red-head in the face with the football, I'm not really feeling the comedic love in tonight's episode.

Seriously, that was just very....weird, as was the thing with Toby/Pam...this "season" (last few weeks) has been funny and entertaing, but very different from "The Office" if you ask me
