The Acting Pairs You Always Wanted to See (even if you didn’t know it)

(This is a preview of the PopRox column in Sunday’s paper, with some added Arrested Development goodness here. SEO, bitches.) When Jim Carrey and Steve Carell were cast as a pair of dueling magicians in the comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, it hit us. “Why didn’t they think of this before?” Their careers had somewhat […]

The Office Without Steve Carell

For seven years, The Office has been the biggest scripted show on NBC, much of it thanks to the comedic talents of Steve Carell. Those days are over, as Carell has left to focus on his movie career. Now the show has to prove it’s still one of the funniest on TV without its funniest […]

Spader or No Spader?

(Programming note: There’s a good chance this is my last blog until July 18 or 19, I’m on vacation next week. If I get the chance, I may blog Thursday morning about the Emmy nominees, but can’t guarantee it. Have a good week everyone!) Right now all we can do is blindly speculate as to […]

My Love Letter to Michael Scott

Dear Michael Scott, I love you. Just to clarify, I’m not a stalker. Sure, I’ve actually looked for you around the streets of Scranton. And yes, I know you’re not real. But I looked anyway. You know, just in case. Also just to clarify, it’s not “I want to have your babies” love. It’s more […]

Future Currently Bright at Mountain Laurel (we hope)

There will be plenty of time to criticize the abridged lineup the Mountain Laurel Pocono Mountains Performing Arts Center will be putting on this summer. Plenty of time. But for now, let’s all just sit back and be completely thankful and grateful that someone, anyone, has enough balls to take a chance on what I’m sure […]

Time to Start Thinking About How We’ll Say Good-Bye

Been pretty busy this week, sorry I missed the mid-week blog. Let’s see if I can make up for it: Thinking of doing something special for Michael Scott’s last episode on The Office, just like NBC is doing. So here’s my idea, and I need your help with it. In the April 24 Sunday PopRox […]

How Long Does Jon Hamm Put up with This?

Wednesday links: It’s official — Mad Men isn’t coming back til next year. This should surprise exactly no one, it was the worst-kept secret of the last few weeks. The problem with this won’t have anything to do with the quality of the show next season or how the product is delivered overall. The problem […]

More Boats N Hoes!

A whole week without links, sorry about that: As funny as Step Brothers is — and it’s probably one of my 10 favorite comedies of the 2000s — I’m the one fan that isn’t too excited about the possibility of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly cutting a rap album. I’m not that much of […]

Office Talk

There is a dark cloud lingering over the upcoming seventh season of the popular, northeast Pennsylvania based NBC sitcom, “The Office.” With Steve Carell’s much-publicized departure from Michael Scott’s corner office at the end of the season, the decision as to who will replace the five-time Emmy nominee is partly on the shoulders of Stroudsburg […]
