The Weekend Tally

Tipsters: Jessica, Rob, Mui, smartone, Purple Belt, ThatsWhatISaid, Alison


  1. I went to target today and bought a lot of Office merchandise! It was amazing! There were mugs, “I Love Jim” notepads, pens, pencils, mouse pads! Everything was very cute!
    The pencils come in packs of 4 for $1.
    There were 2 mugs for $1.
    2 pens for $1.
    And lots of different notepads for $1.

  2. Question: Is Hulu going to be free, or do you have to pay for it.

    And I’m off to Target…

  3. So I called my local Target and the lady said they’re not in. Hopefully the goodies will be in eventually. I’m so excited just reading all the different things that are available!

  4. how did everyone do on the quiz? I was quite pleased with a 10 :-) It’s not too hard especially if you’ve seen both UK and US versions a million times like someone who will remain nameless…

  5. I agree with the guy who wrote the open letter to NBC. And I have gotten some people into “The office” thanks to iTunes. Since I told them to download a couple of episodes of The office and see how it is. They now have all 3 seasons downloaded. And you can get it for free through VHS, DVD recorder, Tivo and so on. So it was a dumb move by NBC. But I don’t know if they wont go back to iTunes for a little while. Maybe sometime next year.

  6. Back from Target, and they didn’t have the goods yet. But it looked like they were clearing the shelves for new stuff, so I will probably check back later.

    And I hope they keep the theme song the same!! The other one sounds too… fake. I don’t know how to explain it, but it does.

  7. Okay, serious, can John be any cuter? I don’t think so. Thank you for this great weekend tally – I must run to Target now!

  8. i haven’t seen that john clip from shrek the third before either. does anyone else think that that face at the end was cuter than any jim face they’re ever seen in their lives?

  9. This would seem to be firm evidence that there is a new theme, and that this is it. For those who don’t download it, it’s the same tune. The piano playing is more accented, and the instrumentation gets kind of “sci-fi” at the end. I don’t know. It’ll probably grow on me and seem normal.

  10. I don’t think that’s the new theme. I thought the theme sounded like that in the last contest’s files.

  11. I think its a good move for NBC to take all the shows off of ITUNES, it will have to force more people to watch the shows first run or tivo them. Hopefully better ratings will come of that

  12. That’s great both the British and U.S. versions of The Office made the TIME list, but I don’t know how authoritative that list is considering it doesn’t include Futurama, Firefly, or Spaced.

    Thanks for posting the tip about Office merchandise in the $1 bins at Target. I’m not sure if the Target in my town has a $1 bin, but I’ll be sure to look the next time I’m there.

    I think that music for the promo contest, Jay Ferguson – New Office Theme, plays at the end of the Pilot when Jim takes the the yellow Jell-O with the World’s Best Boss mug inside and puts it on Michael’s desk. I doubt they’re going to change the intro now to use it instead, which is good since I agree that the current intro music is better.

  13. The “new theme” is the same one that is used on the season 2 bloopers. I don’t like it. I hope they stick with the original version.
