OMG! Must See

 The Office:  Scranton’s favorite paper company, Dunder Mifflin, just isn’t big enough to house the talent of both Steve Carell and Will Farrell.  I’ve been hooked on The Office since the very beginning, and there is nothing they could do at this point to turn me away–except losing Dwight of course!  As Carell steps out, Farrell steps in–but only for four episodes.   The water cooler gossip is that Farrell is taking over as manager but no such luck.  Or perhaps that is lucky–Did you have the misfortune of seeing Land of the Lost?

Parks and Recreation: Leslie, Ron, Tom, April–if you’re a fan of Pawnee politics, then you already know this show is off  the hook.  Parks and Recreation is one of the funniest, best written shows on television.  While it’s sarcastic, it avoids bitterness, and most importantly while it’s hilarious, it avoids the typically inane humor of a sit com.  This show actually makes a point–love your job, work hard, look for love, and when all else fails, just get up and go to work!

Trash TV

 The Real Housewives of Orange County should be served divorce papers from not only Bravo, but all TV viewers.  Usually, when I boycott a show, it’s after I’ve seen several episodes, but seriously, who can sit through this sixty minutes of torture.  These women, and yes this includes the slightly more serious Vicki, are so lost in the superficial, super tanned, super fashion oriented OC, they don’t appear to be real human beings anymore.  What I’m hoping for is some type of reunion boxing match between the ladies in about five years–something reminiscent of the Tanya Harding vs. Paula Jones match–I’d rather watch twelve rounds of that than an hour of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
