Kevin dropped me a line yesterday to point out that Rainn Wilson has supposedly been cast in TRANSFORMERS 2, as "some kind of a professor." 

I guess I'm glad to see him graduating from bit parts in indie films to bit parts in ridiculously overpriced blockbusters, but the original TRANSFORMERS was the mental equivalent of a prostate exam.  I *STILL* feel the pain. 

I think I'll pass on #2, but best of luck to Mr. Wilson.

Listener Kelly tipped me off to this video on TODAY'S BIG THING which supposedly contains every TWSS every uttered in the four seasons of THE OFFICE.

Let them know if they missed any (-_^)

EDIT: Sorry, had to delete the video. Apparently it was causing a major error in Internet Explorer (I only use Firefox, so I had no idea).

I know many of us were impressed with Amy Ryan's turn as Holly Flax in the season finale.  The rapport and chemistry with Michael was one of the high points for me, and I was hoping for more of that next season.  Unfortunately, that might not be the case... at least according to TV Guide's Matt Roush--

As for Amy Ryan: Last time I checked this week, there was no news yet about her returning to the show. But it's hard to imagine she won't appear at least once more — unless Holly was so put off by Michael's arousal and later rejection that her absence is explained later in exposition. I hope we get to see her again — but yeah, don't count on her for the spin-off. This actress's career is just taking off, and this Office role is likely something of a fun lark.

That makes me incredibly sad, but then again, I won't start gnashing my teeth until we get some kind of confirmation from NBC.  I *DID* say that Toby could easily come back to the show after having found Costa Rica distasteful for some reason, so who knows.  All I can say is that I'll really miss her character... is it too soon to make my "Team Holly" shirt? (^_-)

Season Five Debut Date Set
NBC recently announced its Fall schedule, confirming that THE OFFICE will return on SEPTEMBER 25th for a one hour season premiere. MY NAME IS EARL also returns on the 25th, and 30 ROCK once again rears its head on October 30th.

Joining the Thursday night comedy block on October 9th is the retooled Austrailian import KATH & KIM.  NBC describes the show thusly:

For "Kath & Kim," they're the most dysfunctional duo in suburbia. Kath Day (Molly Shannon, NBC's "Saturday Night Live") is the mom, a foxy, 40-something divorcée who finally has time for herself and her valiant search for love. Kim Day (Selma Blair, "Hellboy," "Hellboy II") is the daughter, a self-absorbed princess recently separated from her husband who finds consolation in stuffing her face. When Kim decides to move back home, Kath reluctantly agrees -- but to Kim's chagrin, Kath is not about to cater to her every whim as she has in the past. Based on the most successful comedy in Australia of the same name, Kath and Kim are two brassy women who prefer the finer things in life like acrylic nails, big hair and faux diamond chips. The series is produced by Universal Media Studios and Reveille. The executive producer/writer is Michelle Nader ("The King of Queens") and the executive producer/director is Paul Feig ("Freaks and Geeks," "The Office"). Gina Riley, Jane Turner and Rick McKenna also are executive producers.

Only four months to go!

37 years ago today, my sainted mother pushed me forth into this cold, cruel world.  Well... I guess it hasn't been ALL bad-- I did enjoy a brief period back in the 80s... Oh, and THE OFFICE.  Definitely worth it.

Episode # 45 -- "Goodbye, Toby" (5/15/08) Episode # 45 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin dusting off their Supertramp records. It seems like only yesterday, season four began its dawn... and we really have enjoyed ourselves, but THE OFFICE must move on. With Flenderson gone, Flax is in... and Michael couldn't be happier with his very own office ET. What kind of party WOULD you throw if the devil exploded? Why, the best damn party foot money can buy. Ryan's arrested, Pam's off to New York, Andy steals Jim's thunder, Jan's expecting, Dwangela get down and dirty, and Kevin... well, we're all so very proud of Kevin. So many cliffhangers... so many days until September. Incidental music provided by the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

Due to my schedule this week and the extra time involved with editing an episode of such extraordinary length, TWSS #45 will take a few extra days to produce.

Seeing as we have no other new OFFICE episodes to worry about, I figure you can cut us some slack :)

Keep checking your RSS feeds.

Despite what we all originally thought, Ricky Gervais did NOT come up with the idea for THE OFFICE on his own.  In fact, he was inspired by a little seen Japanese comedy.  Video of the original version surfaced on the web today, and it's definitely well worth a look!

We still have a few hours before Kevin and I are going to record the podcast for "Goodbye, Toby," so if you'd like to leave a voicemail and have it (possibly) included on the show, go ahead and get calling.

I'm sort of torn on what to do with the comments section.  These "cut n paste" spam posts lately are really starting to annoy me, but I don't know if this is some kind of spambot (I don't see what monetary value can be gained from this, esp. since there are no links or ads) or just the work of someone with an axe to grind. 

I don't want to have to moderate comments because it really DOES make it less interesting to not see the posts immediately.  On the other hand, I'm tired of having to scroll through the entire pasted contents of my website every 5 messages. 

Let me know what YOU guys want.  Would you rather I just leave them open?
