The Big Bang Theory: The Plimpton Stimulation

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  May 11, 2010 @ 11:08pm

There is a certain type of woman that can go into an established close-knit group of men, insert her sexuality within, and destabilize everything. In this episode of The Big Bang Theory, that woman is Dr. Elizabeth Plimpton. Unfamiliar with the opposite sex, Sheldon used his limited knowledge to prepare for her arrival and stay at his and Leonard's apartment.

The Office: The Cover Up

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  May 6, 2010 @ 11:46pm

In the absence of a conflict between Dwight and Jim, another conflict took place, that was very reminiscent of the every man versus the workplace goofball. Unlike Jim, Darryl is much more spontaneous with his pranking, and Andy, unlike Dwight, was not out to cause any trouble. Darryl just happened to remember an incident from two years ago, and he was exacting his revenge on Andy.

The Office: The Delivery

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  March 8, 2010 @ 9:20pm

Much of the appeal of The Office is a result of combining diverse characters in an office environment, with plots that are driven by workplace related themes and the interactions that ensue. The Delivery, is unlike most episodes of The Office. Instead, it relies on slapstick, and the characters acting very much over the top.

Canadian comedy Less Than Kind returns tonight for a second season on a new network

Posted by: Paul Little  //  February 19, 2010 @ 6:21am

From the opening strums of the guitar on The Weakerthan's "One Great City", the entire feel of Less Than Kind is set. The characters aren't really pleasant, happy people. They're like most Winnipeggers (the setting for the show and the subject of its theme song): they complain, they're generally miserable, and they refuse to admit how good they have it.

The Office: Manager and Salesman

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  February 14, 2010 @ 6:13pm

Manager and Salesman has got to be the most disappointing episode of The Office in a very long time. There was minimal characterization, a predictable plot, and a love story that's going nowhere. And where there is characterization, there is nothing memorable.

The Office: Scott's Tots

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  December 6, 2009 @ 2:52am

There are times when Michael has been able to take a situation from an inevitable doom, and turn it into a miraculous victory. These times are rare, and are dependent on Michael's invincible cluelessness, coupled with an antagonist that is all too grounded in reality.

The Office: Shareholder Meeting

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  November 20, 2009 @ 1:54am

There was something awfully strange about Michael getting greeted at the hotel. He got to go into an area that was for upper management and the board members only, to a room that had two security guards standing outside the door. As Michael and the upper echelon were going on the stage, they too were also mysteriously escorted by security.

The Office: Koi Pond

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  October 30, 2009 @ 9:19pm

Halloween episodes are fun to watch. The costumes are always interesting, whether it be Jim's minimalism, or Creed's incredible uncanniness. But with The Office tradition, something tragic always happens at that time of the year.
