Everything That's Happened On The Office Since Michael Scott Left & You Stopped Watching

The Office is the best show on TV that everyone stopped watching between two to five years ago depending on their determination. I’m sure there’s a lot of you out there that haven’t watched for quite some time but who want to tune in tomorrow out of curiosity. In order to catch you up on some things, I’ve put together this handy guide to what the major characters have been up to since the end of season seven. More »

This Office Farewell Video Just Made Me Cry In Spite Of Myself

I’m one of those people who is still watching The Office while simultaneously complaining that the show’s quality has declined. The show has lost its must-see quality for me, so I watch it out of a sense of loyalty and habit. But just because I don’t obsess over the series like I used to doesn’t mean it doesn’t still hold a special place in my heart, and it doesn’t mean I won’t be sad to say goodbye to those characters.

If Dwight Schrute Gets His Own Show Will It Be The Kiss Of Death For Him?

Even though the future of The Office is uncertain now that Michael Scott has taken his leave and run off to Colorado with Holly, NBC is still betting on the remaining characters being able to hold the show together. Their faith in one character, in particular, is so strong they’re even in the process of developing a spin-off for him.

Steve Carell Not Winning an Emmy Was the Biggest Upset of Last Night's Awards

Go on Tumblr during last night’s Emmy Awards, and you’d see the site aflame with tearful and furious posts from Steve Carell‘s fans: He lost to Jim Parsons for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, and since this was Steve’s last year on The Office, that means he’ll go home having never won an Emmy for his work as Michael Scott.

Liv Tyler Plays Weak Female Characters, Which Is Apparently What We Need Right Now

Liv Tyler Plays Weak Female Characters, Which Is Apparently What We Need Right Now

The last two movies I’ve seen Liv Tyler in, she’s been the central female character, and a weak one at that: A former drug addict who’s been rescued by a sweet man but finds herself easily falling under the control of a controlling yet seductive jerk thanks to her docile personality. That counts for both Super and The Ledge. (And That Thing You Do! and Armageddon, now that we think about it.) Obviously there’s a formula Tyler’s got in her head. But why would she want to follow it — in both films, her character is meek and lost, hardly speaking above a murmur and terrified of the man who holds her in check.
