I have ventured into the dark worlds of online television reviewing and wrote this week’s recap and review of “Money” for The Two Cents. Here’s a little teaser:
“I hate to break it to you Dunderheads, but the reviews for Season 4 thus far have been not so great. Our little mid-range North-Eastern Penn. based paper company can’t seem to catch a break as TV Guide jeers Jim and Pam for being dull, Slate says Ryan is a one-dimensional villain, LA Times thinks Michael’s antics are over the top, and pretty much everyone agrees the hour-long format hasn’t done the show any favors. Now, it will take a lot to make me stop loving this show, but I have been worried that Jim’s little quip about the magic being gone in “Dunder Mifflin Infinity” has become a self-fulfilling prophecy.”
Go read the rest at TheTwoCents (and please tell me how I did review wise).
Rolling Stone Magazine decided to take on a daunting task and list the 25 Greatest Moments from the show in their latest issue. Go read the list, then go to the jump to how Flonkerton thinks RS did.
Um, yeah, in the words of Kevin, “Are you kidding me?” If this list was called “Top 25 funny obscure moments that you may have forgotten”, then it’s a fine list. But I can’t buy any list that claims to be the “Greatest Moments” when there’s two moments from ‘Phyllis’ Wedding’ but no moments from Dundies, Booze Cruise, Casino Night, Benihana Christmas, or Beach Games. Is Kelly talking about celebrity babies really “greater” than Michael’s “Boss of Dancing” or Dwight getting faxes from his future self? And no Jim & Pam? At all? Sorry, Rolling Stone, but you tried this out, and it’s clearly not for you. It’s time to go.
