People Register In Droves To Work At ‘The Office’
IT LOOKS LIKE NBC MANAGED to make a good thing better when it attached a stylized social network to its popular series “The Office.”

As part of its larger “The Office 360” initiative, NBC launched The Dunder Mifflin Infinity site early last month for fans to congregate and perform weekly tasks tied closely to the story line of each week’s show.

With the hope of further engaging viewers and their imaginations, the site goes so far as to assign registered users a position at Dunder Mifflin–the colorless paper company where the series is set.

Since then, the show’s site has attracted over 800,000 unique users–100,000 of whom decided to enlist in the company’s virtual workforce –along with eight million page views. Read the rest of this entry »


prison break: sara fired?


According to an interview in French magazine Tele Star, former Prison Break star Sarah Wayne Callies, aka Dr. Sara Tancredi, was forced to quit the show. Here is a rough translation of the interview (if the magazine is credible):

Sara’s lines are in bold.

“Big surprise on Prison Break. We hear that you’re leaving the show in the third season.”

“Yes, but I didn’t have the choice. I’m sad, but it’s just show business.”

“You weren’t expecting this?”

“No, at the end of season 2 last year. I was sure I’d continue. It’s such a great adventure we achieved.”

“How did you know you were fired?”

“I don’t want to speculate too much about this. I was shocked.”

“Your leaving the show was a big deal. You have to tell us more! I’ll just say this.”

“I am sorry to let down the viewers. I have loved the support Sara Tancredi got from them. and though she was a victim of her own destiny, I liked how she made decisions by herself. But the way things ended up couldn’t have been foreseen. Again, I was deceived by the decision.”

“How did your fellow actors react?”

“They told me it’s too bad. I loved working with you and good luck, we hope we can work together again.”

“And Wentworth Miller?”

“We were so sad that we wouldn’t work together anymore. Wentworth is a gentleman. He’s gracious and full of class. And I learned a lot from him. But in a series like “Prison Break,” apart from Wentworth, anyone can go. When I took the role of Sara, I thought it’d be for only a year. Afterwards, I was so happy to get a second year.”

“If they call you back, will you accept?”

“Of course! I don’t have another role right now. Right now, I need to find work.”

“How will Sara make her exit from the series?”

“I don’t know. I’m not part of the team anymore and don’t have any influence on the storyline.”

“How is being a mom to baby Keala?”

“It’s a rich experience and unpredictable. You can’t plan anything.” (Keala was born in July 2007)

“What projects do you currently have today?”

“I’ll rest another month in Vancouver (Canada). Afterwards, I’ll go to California for a little bit. After that, I’d like to do theater in New York. I honed my skills on the stage and I miss it.”

Stay tuned- this may be a rumor and she may have left because of her baby.

must see tv part 1

Ok, Thursday TV is back!!! I’m so excited about all my favorite shows:

The Office, ER, My Name Is Earl, 30 Rock and Scrubs.

Luckily, I have a dvr to enjoy them over and over again. Last night with the premiere’s of The Office and ER. I unfortunately had to work (the fun job though) and so I missed watching them all on Thurs. After getting home after midnight I decided I had to at least watch one and of course it was The Office. I’ll post later on the others, you can be sure 🙂

Talk about great. I was on the floor. Here are some of my favorite scenes:

Pam & Jim are an item! (They’re PB & J, heehee)

Michael plans a fun run for rabies, because he hit an Meredith in the parking lot with his car. No, I’m sorry his car hit her. 😉

Your favorites? Anyone see clips posted on youtube yet??
