"Dinner Party" Review

The Office
The Dinner Party

Original Air Date: April 10, 2008

PG Ignacio - From TheTwoCents.com

The Office has finally returned. As you probably know from reading spoilers, cast interviews, and watching previews, tonight's episode takes place at Michael's condo. Michael invites Jim, Pam, Angela, and Andy over for dinner with himself and Jan. We learn ALOT about Michael's relationship with Jan living in his condo.

During a tour of the condo we see that Jan has an office and a workplace to make candles. In the bedroom there is a camcorder setup on a tripod. Jim and Pam notice a small bed like setup at the foot of the normal bed. Jan has space issues and that is exactly where Michael sleeps. Michael displayed his new 13 inch plasma TV in the living room. Michael attempted to craft a coffee table, but I’m pretty sure a 2 year old would have more success. His Dundies were also on display at the bottom of a shelf.

Everyone Loves Angela Kinsey

Here's another interview to prove it! Pinks & Blues has posted yet another question and answer session with Angela Kinsey:

"P&B: Does anyone have a poll going around “The Office” to guess the date your baby will arrive, and her weight/height stats?

Angela: Ha! Yes there is. The crew has started an “Angela’s Baby Pool.” They have a calendar and you can buy a square for $10. You pick the date and time. It’s pretty funny. I have started having doctors appointments every week now and you should see how the ladies in the crew circle me after for details. I’ll be in the hair and makeup trailer and they’ll say coyly, “So, Ange any news from your doctor?”

Newsday's Spin-off Ideas

Newsday has a hilarious list of possible spin-off ideas for all the characters on the show.

"Creed:" Agreed, it's a tough sell to advertisers. We do a whole show based on Creed! There's so much possibility here. Who really is Creed? What does he do in his off-hours? Does he really live in Toronto (so he can stay on the dole in the Canada?) What really happened to his missing toe? Did he really run cults? Has he been in jail? There are many possibilities here, though still working out love interest angle . (Meredith? Not sure. Just spit-balling here. Open to ideas) Plus have already talked with Creed Bratton's agent; think we can get him cheap. Endless cross-promotion/product placement possibilities.

See ALL the ideas HERE.

Angela Kinsey Interview

"Since you are currently pregnant, is your production schedule any different than before your pregnancy?

Angela: I have to take off time for doctor's appointments but other than that not really. Everyone in the cast and crew has been so supportive. I have a bunch of people getting me snacks all day long!"
