I need to return to the Office....

Is it just me? Or are you feeling the effects of the writers strike? I am about to join up with George Clooney (what could be wrong with that? I think he is a really funny guy). Obviously he too is missing his Thursday night TV (Of course I know that isn't the real reason). What is with these big wigs that will not give in to the demands of the writers? It is obvious that without giving in, there is no TV. Not really. Not to mention it is costing the industry billions of dollars. What they have cost the industry could've paid these people. The writers are the reason they have a hit show.
This strike is killing me. It is killing me to not know what is going on at Dunder-Mifflin. What is Dwight doing these days? Has he brown nosed Micheal so much that he has earned the position of ASS-istant GM? Has Jim and Pam finally given into their mutual office crush for one another? Has Michael finally been fired for sexual harassment? Have Dwight and Angela been found out? These are things I must know.
Sure I have been watching my own personal video collection, as well as watch reruns on TBS but it only gets me so far. I have applied and been accepted, mind you, to be a employee of Dunder Mifflin Infinity, AL-Tuscaloosa Branch (LOL). (http://www.dundermifflininfinity.com/) But it too lacks the same quality as sitting in front of the TV watching the events of the daily office unfold.
PLEASE! PLEASE! You big wig, hot shots of Hollyweird, Please give up and meet the demands of the writers. You are losing money anyway, give it to those who are responsible for the success of your show- for peets sake -the networks (hear me NBC!)In the meantime, CONGRATS TO THE CAST OF THE OFFICE! They won Best Comedy Ensemble at the Screen Actors Guild Awards
If you too are needing a personal office fix, visit the web site. There is some mediocre trivia and online podcast of behind the scenes stuff on the site. Though it stops short of producing the real chauvinistic, rude, overzealous and witty show that so many love. Office. Please return. I need my weekly employment.
