The Office is a comedy. And a love story. And probably the funniest thing on television since Seinfeld. And I’m not sure it isn’t the equal of Seinfeld. Here’s a little shout out to bloggers from last night’s season finale. Here’s what I could make out (freeze frame) of Creed’s “blog” post:

“Hey-o, everyone out there in SyberWorld. It’s old Creed Bratton coming at your again, here from my perch as a Quality Assurance Manager at Dunder Mifflin paper. Just a few observations on the world around me.

What do you guys think is the best kind of car? To me, you can’t (off screen) motorcyles. They’re small and dangerous.

I go…”

Did one of the writers compose that post? Did they let the actor who plays Creed write it? Did that someone know some blogger/fan would go to the trouble to post Creed’s post? Am I the only person on the planet to do so? Is there another Beck’s in the frig?

PS: Holy shit! The actor who plays Creed (Creed Bratton) was a member of the 60s rock band The Grassroots. I’m the only one that didn’t know that, right?

  1. I didn’t know Creed was in the Grassroots just as I didn’t know P.F. Sloan, who wrote “Eve of Destruction” and “Secret Agent Man”,was also a member at one time.

  2. I agree, The Office rules, and it’s interesting you compare it to Seinfeld. Have you read the entry on Seinfeld on Wikipedia? There is an analysis to support that it’s the ultimate postmodernist show. What does that make The Office, then? (what are the salient discursive themes??).

  3. Looks like Dwight is also blogging, although he eeds the Steve Mays Speech on Post Frequency.
    I really wish more TV shows did more with this secondary space. There’s a ton of potential for creative people to help us suspend our disbelief with online stuff like character blogs, podcasts, etc. “Lost” does a lot of online stuff, but you can’t very well have the characters blogging from their deserted island. (Although, come to think of it, a couple of abandoned blogs post-dated to coincide with their disappearance would be a great way to expand character background.)

  4. Thought this was a great way to end the season…if this isn’t the best show on TV, I don’t know what is.
    Here’s a link to Creed’s Thoughts on the show’s NBC homepage: http://blog.nbc.com/CreedThoughts/
    BTW, the actress that plays Karen (Rashida Jones, daughter of Quincy Jones and [I think] Peggy Lipton) is probably off the show due to a new series on Fox.
