My 9 Favorite Relationships In Pop Culture

There are plenty of really, truly bad relationships in pop culture (Christian and Ana, anyone? Romeo and Juliet?), and even the sort of mediocre relationships in pop culture would be considered totally melodramatic and probably borderline unhealthy if you took them out of fiction and put them in real life. But there are…

Check Out This Supercut Of Pop Culture References In “The Office” And Weep Over Missing Michael Scott

Joe Sabia is a director and advocate for changes in copyright law. In an attempt to show just how reliant great comedy is on shared experiences and others' intellectual property, he's made "The Office" Time Machine. The site is organized by year and uses video clips to break down 1,300 pop culture reference…

Ellie Kemper Makes Me Sigh, “Thank God For Women”

"Guys, do you want to know a secret? You don't have to be funny in order to attract us. Believe us, between your scalps and your calves, you've already got us. Your narrow, decrescendoing hips, and your soft, very hairy thighs leave us breathless. The truth is, there is no evolutionary cause for you to have…

7 Shows I’m Deleting From My DVR And Why

TV is a big part of my life; I watch a lot of it, which means the invention of the DVR has been my saving grace. Over the years, I've DVRed one-off programs, of course, but a smart TV viewer knows to DVR whole series so that a brain fart on Monday morning won't lead…

Rainn Wilson Spoofs Angus T. Jones’ “Two And A Half Men” Freak Out

Remember a couple of days ago when Angus T. Jones, the "half" on "Two And A Half Men," had a major video freak out, and told fans of the show that the sitcom was utter filth? Yeah, that was pretty crazy. Well, now Rainn Wilson and Craig Robinson of "The Office" offer a similar…

Nick Offerman Reminds Men That “It Gets Fuller”

I could look at the mustachioed visage of Nick Offerman -- Ron Swanson of "Parks and Recreation"-- for days. His 'stache is perfectly groomed and majestic, reminiscent of the glory of a flock of birds cresting over the horizon or a beautiful sunrise on a pristine white beach. Here, he reassures men participating in Movember…

Mindy Kaling Gets All Up In Fox’s Ladybits Playing An OB/GYN In New Sitcom

Sitcoms for everyone! Mindy Kaling is the latest lady we love to get her own show: a source tells NYmag.com that Fox will be ordering a pilot written and starring the fabulous Miss K.

Mindy Kaling Shares Her Concerns

It should come as no surprise that The Frisky staff is fairly obsessed with "Office" writer and star Mindy Kaling. It's not just that we love her ridiculous portrayal of Kelly Kapoor, but we think it's seriously great that she's emerged as one of the smartest and sassiest female television writers around. We can't wait…

How To Insult Mindy Kaling

"Recently I tweeted, 'I can't read another article about how great it is to see the Harry Potter kids growing up.' And everyone was like, 'Why all the hate? Emma Watson's a thousand times prettier than you!' Sometimes people tweet at you and it's, like, 'You just wanted to tell me I was ugly. You've…

The Fine Art Of “The Office”

A genius promotional photo for NBC's "The Office" features Pam, Jim, and the gang channeling Georges Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Do they really all want to hang out on a Sunday afternoon? I'm not buying that. More important question: who will lead them in the office o…

TV 101: Some Of TV’s Most Memorable Departures

If I learned anything from Bon Jovi in the '80s it was that an object's slipperiness had a direct correlation with that same object's relative wetness. But more importantly, I learned that we should never say goodbye. However, following through with such a sentiment -- never say goodbye -- is much more difficult than scrawling…

“The Office”‘s “Seasons Of Love” Tribute To Michael Scott

I haven't been a loyal watcher of "The Office" in a few seasons, but that didn't stop me from totally tearing up while watching this tribute to Michael Scott from last night's episode. My high school choir (I was not a member) sang "Seasons of Love" from "Rent" at my high school graduation and, damn,…

Ricky Gervais Impersonates David Bowie

Well lookey what we have here. A young Ricky Gervais who clearly fancies himself a David Bowie disciple. Ricky was the front man of British new wave band, Seona Dancing. Even though this song hit number 70 on the UK charts, I'm glad he decided to explore his comedic side instead of staying focused…

Erin Freaks Out About Andy’s Ex On “The Office”

Last night on "The Office," Erin learned that her boyfriend, Andy, had not only dated Angela but was engaged to her -- and he sort of forgot to mention it. Erin reacts by turning into Cousin It and causing a scene while out to lunch with Michael for Secretary's Day. We have to admit,…

Quotable: Pam Gave Birth The Same Day Jenna Fischer’s Sister Did In Real Life

"The same week that we were shooting the episode where Pam’s baby is born, I was becoming the aunt for the very first time. Literally the day we shot Pam’s going to the hospital, my sister was going to the hospital, and the same day we shot me coming home from the hospital, my sister…

There’s Something Wrong With This Photo …

Tonight on "The Office," Pam goes into labor. Let's hope her baby with adorable husband Jim doesn't look a thing like Pim or Jam. [Arrows & Accolades]…

Michael Scott And David Brent Set For An “Office” Showdown

As a fan of both the American and British versions of "The Office," I have on occasion wondered who would win in an arm-wrestling match—David Brent or Michael Scott. It looks like I might finally get my answer. Rumor has it that Ricky Gervais will be doing a guest spot on "The Office," stateside,…

Kelly Kapoor And Erin Hannon Are Gonna Give Rihanna, Beyonce, And Lady Gaga A Run For Their Money

There's a hot new girl group out of Scranton, PA, that's inspired by "Rihanna, Katy Perry, J.Hud, and all the Kardashians," and they might surpass all these influences if the rest of their music is anything like this first single. "The Office" characters Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling) and Erin Hannon (Ellie Kemper) are Subtle Sexuality,…

Jim And Pam’s Wedding Dance

OK, SPOILER: If you haven't watched last night's special episode of "The Office" yet where Jim and Pam get married, you may not want to watch this clip or read the rest of this post. Although, seriously, if you were such a big fan, wouldn't you have found a way to watch the show…
