Default The Office Mentions MADtv!

That's right everyone, in last nights episode of the Office, a MADtv mentioning was name dropped, and seeing as the Office is one of my other favourite shows, I am so happy to hear it.

In the episode, everyone was making fun of Kevin for a video Oscar did of him as the Cookie Monster, which persuades everyone to make fun of him, after Jim does an impression of Kevin Gabe, the new representative for the offices new company Sabre told everyone "Guys, why don't we leave the parodies to the pros at MADtv" to which Jim responds in a Kevin/Cookie Monster voice "Sorry Gabe, but that show hasn't been on in many cookies".

I didn't catch it the first time I watched it because I was busy laughing at Jim's impression of Kevin, but when I when I torrented it to see the ending which always cuts off on my PVR, I came across the find. Though I am glad to hear the reference, and to hear the word pros and MADtv in the same sentance, Jim did make me sad when he said the show hadn't been on in many cookies. It does make me glad to know that they do know it hasn't been on the air for a while though. Still, just the fact that it was mentioned gave me a thrill I will keep me happy 'til at least through the weekend.

Thing is, I don't think it's that much of a putdown. I mean, how really is it a putdown?

It is a great show. It has a true sense of an 'ensemble cast'. Everyone from the five main in the credit to all the character like Angela to Toby to Holly to Jan (etc.) They all make the show what it is.

Also, I'm on the believing side that the show will def. be different when Steve leaves, but I believe if people give it a chance, it will still be great. He makes the show hilarious but without the rest of the cast it wouldn't still be on the air. I think if they slowly fade him out and give some episodes to the other characters then it will be an easier transition.

Another great ensemble cast show is 30 Rock (I love Jane Krakowski, and the cast is great!), and also Parks and Rec is becoming a great show too, lets home this mid-season start doesn't kill it.
