So we record episode five, and play the deleted scenes for THE INITIATION... THEN NBC comes out with 5 MORE deleted scenes, which we cover on episode #5.5... NOW NBC has posted yet ANOTHER deleted scene. ARG.
Curse you, you peacock loving bastiches!
Maybe I'm going crazy, but I also just noticed that NBC has uploaded TWO (1, 2) new deleted scenes from GRIEF COUNSELING that we never mentioned or analyzed on the podcast. The first one gives us more Pam & Roy interaction, and the second shows Jan & Michael on the phone talking about Ed dying ("Does his family know?").
NBC... you guys are killin' me here.

Episode #5.5 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Ian lost in a sea of confusion... if a show airs no new episode, is there anyone around to hear the podcast? It's rerun day here folks, but we've still got a good handful of tidbits to dissect, news to go through, and e-mails to ridicule. From Jim's iPod this week, Jonathan Coulton with "Code Monkey"...

IndiaWest (North American's Most Honored Weekly Newspaper, according to their website) posted an article today which looked at the November 2nd episode of THE OFFICE, "Diwali."
To quote from Wikipedia, Diwali is:
"a major Hindu festival that is also very significant in Sikhism and Jainism. Known as the "Festival of Lights," it symbolises the victory of good over evil, and lamps are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for mankind. Celebrations focus on lights and lamps, particularly traditional diyas (as illustrated). Fireworks are associated with the festival in many regions of India.
Diwali is celebrated for five consecutive days at the end of Hindu month of Ashwayuja. It usually occurs in October/November, and is one of the most popular and eagerly awaited festivals in India. Diwali comes exactly twenty days after Dussehra. Hindus, Jains and Sikhs alike regard it as a celebration of life and use the occasion to strengthen family and social relationships. For Jains it is one of the most important festivals, and beginning of the Jain year. Jains celebrate Diwali to mark the time when Lord Mahavira achieved Moksha. It is also a significant festival for the Sikh faith."
IndiaWest also interviewed Mindy Kaling (aka Chokalingam) about the show. She said that Greg Daniels was "thrilled" at the idea of focusing an episode on the holiday because it was a completely fresh concept that had never been done on American TV before, and also mentioned that her real life parents are going to be playing Mr. & Mrs. Kapoor on the episode.
"My mom and dad were thrilled and adorably nervous to be playing the Kapoors, who are much more traditional Indian parents than [mine] are," Kaling told IndiaWest. "They also play a couple that had an arranged marriage, which was not the case for my parents. So that was a little bit of 'acting' for them."
"The comedy potential of Michael Scott in a Hindu festival, surrounded by Indian Americans and committing faux pas, seemed too delicious to pass up, anyone could see that... It reminded me of Peter Sellers and 'The Party,' one of my dad's favorite movies."

So Brian "Kevin" Baumgartner gave some big news on his myspace blog today.
#1) November 16th's episode of THE OFFICE will be yet another 40 minute super-sized episode. Tasty! As we've seen, the episodes ALWAYS run long, so I am really happy for another "Casino Night" sized ep... This episode, of course, must be fallout from November 9th's "Branch Closing"... so I'm guessing this is when we'll see Jim (and Karen?) being relocated back to Scranton.
#2) Starting November 30th, DEAL OR NO DEAL will no longer be airing on Thursdays. Instead, NBC will go back to the good old fashioned "Must See TV" all sitcom line-up! From then on, we'll get Earl, The Office, Scrubs and 30 Rock... capped off with the 27th season of ER. Based on the news from last week, this is sort of interesting... glad to see NBC is giving 30 Rock another chance (I thought the first episode was pretty funny, although I missed the last one... or two?).
Not too shabby.

In case anyone else missed the news from the comments area, NBC has posted several new deleted scenes from "The Initiation."
Ah, Stanley, I *knew* you had it in you... you just made it to the podcast sound clip library! Congrats, big man.
Speaking of which... can the members of TWSS/DAC give me a hand in finding ALL the "That's What She Said" clips that have ever been uttered during the three seasons of "The Office"? Episode number & time would be greatly appreciated... I'm toying with the idea of putting them all together into a big sound clip for use in promotional materials.
Thanks for any assistance!

We mentioned this on the show this week, but just in case you missed it, Angela Kinsey posted this reminder on her myspace.com blog:
just wanted to give you a heads up that Brian (you know you love Kevin) and I will be on Loveline, KROQ 106.7, tomorrow night---Tuesday, Oct. 24th. Here are the details about the show:
Loveline follows the call-in question-and-answer model with the primary goal of helping youth and young adults with relationship, sexuality, and drug addiction problems. Actors or members of popular bands often participate as guests. It is a nation-wide show but I'm not sure how you listen in if you are outside of California.
In the past---Jenna, BJ and Rainn have all been guests.
So there you go... if anyone listens to the show, let me know how it goes.

Episode #5.0 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID has turned both Ian and Matt into diehard "Jam/Pim shippers"! It's pretzel day here folks, and we're jonesing for "the works" along with Michael and Stanley. Pam a snitch? Jim, master of Psychological warfare? Bob Vance, a dick? Will Ryan be able to wrestle his fear to the ground? And oh, what a phone call... Episode discussion, news, emails and more. Nothing from Jim's iPod this week... Sorry about that... Incidental music provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

According to the Associated Press's "Today In History" column, everyone's favorite chip-finding, CoD sucking, Pam-avoiding actor John Krasinski was born the 20th day of October, in the year of our Lord 1,979.
Doing the math he's...let's see... 27 today.
Happy b-day, big guy!
