Please Do Not Revive the Office: Heres Why

There is no doubt that reviving shows and themes has become a common practice in Hollywood. It is as if all the writers and producers have writers block and the creativity has diminished. But wait a minute, there are some shows that have been revived that do well the second time around; however, it is not the norm. There has been a lot of talk about reviving at NBC. While the argument could be made that the office is one of the top sitcoms of all time, reviving the show would not be a good idea. There are multitudinous reasons   ...Read More... //www.tvovermind.com/tv-news/please-not-revive-office-heres

TV Sitcoms That Lasted Way Longer Than They Should Have

There are TV shows that come and go without doing much more than scratching the collective consciousness of the American public and then there are those that stick around for a while because we love them so much. But after so many seasons some shows dont feel the need to move on or develop any further and it becomes a drag to see them churning out the same thing day in and day as they begin to grow stale and dull. You really hate to see this happen to your favorite shows but there are times when even the best   ...Read More... //www.tvovermind.com/tv-news/tv-sitcoms-lasted-way-longer

12 Shows of Christmas, Part 2

Part one of the 12 Shows of Christmas from Scotwot and TelevisionFanboy is here . Part three is here .   For the fifth show of Christmas, Scotwot gave to me... Will and Grace acting snarky! These are possibly the most quotable and hilarious Christmas episodes I've ever watched, plus the celebrity appearances are fabulous! I love Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen more than any other sitcom characters and want each of them as my own snarky, booze-filled, pajama-wearing, synchronized-dancing friends. Please, Santa? All of the holiday episodes are fantastic, whether it's breaking a prized ornament and then dealing with its manipulative owner, wondering if you should put your career before friendship, praying to Santa for help, waiting in line for tickets you don't even want just because your friend is a Fanilow, being snubbed by your mother at Hanukkah, going on a foursome road trip, or my most favorite, reading aloud your very own story of "The 12 Gays of Christmas." Will and Grace has the entire holiday season covered and then some! Christmas may come once a year but in W&G 's universe, fake sympathy, bitchiness, terrible advice, and too much booze are here to stay. I have a sneaking feeling we might all be secret Fanilows. As Karen says, "We're waiting in line for a man called Barry Manilow. He's cuter than Deepak and you don't have to buy a lot of crap to believe in him!" BTW, if you've never seen the brilliant Debra Messing's rendition of "Mandy" then you are in for a treat!   For the sixth show of Christmas, TelevisonFanboy gave to me... Kwanzaa-bot, Robonukkah, and Dr. Z. No show celebrates the holidays quite like Futurama . A thousand years in the future, Christmas is now pronounced Xmas and run by an out-of-control robot Santa Claus (voiced by John Goodman). Every year on Xmas Eve, Robot Santa comes to deliver judgment of the nice and naughty, inevitably judging everyone (excluding Dr. Zoidberg) as having been naughty. If you like your holiday specials dystopian and hilarious, Futurama delivers in spades. But the holiday-themed fun doesn't stop there. Futurama also has Kwanzaa-bot (voiced by Coolio) and the oh-so-memorable Hanukkah zombie. In the spirit of unity, these three come together to save Earth while educating children on the wonders of each holiday. If that sounds ridiculous to you, it is. But these holiday-themed episodes are sure to bring joy to anyone who watches them! And for those of you who don't watch them... Robot Santa is not merciful.   For the seventh show of Christmas, Scotwot gave to me... the Arrested Development family! Some shows defy written explanation; they have to be seen to be believed. Arrested Development is one such show. Narrated by Ron Howard, it has an exceptional ensemble cast, none of whom have any qualms about making complete fools of themselves. A quick summary of some of the show's characters (and names) should send you racing to buy a complete box set of what is one of the funniest cult comedies, ever: There's a sociopathic matriarch who belittles her children at every opportunity, a hapless patriarch, a "nearly nude" who tends to speak (innocently, yet almost all the time) in double and sometimes triple entendres. Then there's Buster, who was in the womb for 10 and a half months and in adulthood still lives with his mother. There's a self-obsessed daughter and a grandson named George Michael — but even his name pales in comparison to son G.O.B.'s name. Pronounce it at your own risk! Trying to keep all of their madness, ridiculous ideas, and nefarious schemes in check is Michael, the only relatively sane person in the entire family. Although he did name his son George Michael, so even his sanity is in question. Ain't no one getting out of this family with their wits intact! Especially at Christmas… Ah, the Bluth office Christmas party, this is exactly how the boss should (not) behave. Yep, we've all been to that party. (Some of us still have to go to them.) Ever the peacemaker, Michael gets on stage with his niece and tries to lighten the mood with some spontaneous karaoke, thinking they will cheer up everyone in the office! Michael's happy! However, "Afternoon Delight" is the one song no one should ever sing with a relative, something Michael discovers just a little too late. Oops! Meanwhile, his sister is too preoccupied to care about what her daughter is singing. For Lindsay, the Christmas party means one thing and one thing only! She grabbed what? Oh, Michael, why are you surprised? It's Lindsay! Well, it wouldn't be a Bluth Christmas party if everyone didn't end the night feeling sad… Hoping your Christmas is a lot happier than the Bluths', but really, could it get much worse?   For the eighth show of Christmas, TelevisionFanboy gave to me... The Office with GIFs aplenty! The U.S. adaptation of The Office has some of TV's best holiday episodes, period. Michael Scott does not throw a party halfway, often leading to a full-blown catastrophe. But rather than having to listen to me droll on about it, let's learn by example. The Office Christmas party lessons: Step 1: How to not put up the tree. Step 2: Shots will be required. Step 3: No stupid costumes allowed! Step 4: Try not to make a scene. And finally, step 5: Jumping in unison is impossible in large groups.   What's your favorite Christmas TV memory? Share below! div.post p { text-align: justify; }
