Aziz Ansari Joins The Office Spin-Off/WEEDS REVIEW

20 06 2008

“We don’t post a lot of TV news but we couldn’t let this kidney stone of bananas pass us by. Aziz Ansari of the Human Giant clan (and fellow /Film reader) has joined NBC’s spin-off to The Office. Ansari is the first cast member to be announced for the top-secret comedy series. At this point it’s believed that the cast will consist of an all new line-up, though rumors persist about the involvement of Rashida Jones, who played Karen Filippelli, Jim’s ex-flame, on the original U.S. series. Yes, that’s the first “ex-flame” I’ve ever typed.

What’s more, the super-talented Paul Feig of Freaks and Geeks fame just boarded the show’s writing staff, which includes Dan Goor (Conan O’Brien, The Daily Show), Alan Yang (South Park), and Charlie Grandy (SNL, The Daily Show). Nice. Executive producers Michael Shur and Greg Daniels say they’re still deciding on a premise for the untitled show, set to premiere after next year’s Superbowl and thereafter in the timeslot following the ongoing trials of Jim, Pam and Michael. Yeah, you could say we’re excited…in advance. And congrats to Ansari.

In other TV news, the new season of Weeds premieres this Monday on Showtime, while the hotly anticipated second season of Mad Men premieres July 27th on AMC. via Variety /E!”



I watched the first episode of new season of Weeds lat night. NOTES:
-Loved that Ceilia is getting F*#$ed. About time (not literally though).
-What was with the “dad” pissing away at Nancy then being like “ok, you can stay in the house.”
-Hilarious when Doug and Dean are high as a kite and Doug says “Issabelle is cool, shes basically already one of the guys”. And Dean responds “Im waiting until shes finished puberty to make that decision.”
-Wow. Has Silias ever grown! Hot hot hot.
-So Majestic …or Agrestic.. is gone. Burned. Is the house burned though? WHO KNOWS. I dont think so. That would be a cop out…too easy.
-Nancy as a smuggler over the border eh? Is it just me or does the lack of security personnel seem quite questionable.
-Please do not let the conversation between Nancy and Andy seem like a setup for a Drunken/Emotionally moment driven sexual encounter in the near future. Let us hope not.
