The Office: The Little Doc-U-Comedy that Touched and Influenced the TV Universe

OFFICE1-articleLarge

When reliving what was The Office, a part of you feels disappointed.  You can’t help but feel a gap between what you loved and what remained.

A show that was so influential, hitting on every cylinder was everything an American landscape could be presented as – from a workplace, to our comedic tendencies, to our relationships – was lazy, uninspired, and unplanned for much of the last few years.

This might sound like a negative view, but we can only feel that way because of what we will remember: The most influential American comedy of the first decade of the 2000’s. Continue reading

smithgoldblum

President’s Day, and President’s Week (for those luckier) is a great time to remember the great leaders we had in the United States.  This year, more than most, we were reminded of perhaps the best President in our history, Abraham Lincoln, when Steven Spielberg released “Lincoln” in theatres, starring Daniel Day Lewis.

The Wartime General: Rex Ryan, Purpose, and Survival

rexchurchill

Winston Churchill is perhaps the most popular leader in British history.  He helped lead them to a victory in World War II.  At home, he helped set up a government coalition to unite and move to achieve great mobilization during the war period.  Churchill was a brilliant war strategist who knew not only how to motivate, but how to go about winning battles he was in, especially when he had the sudden backing and weapon of the United States following the Japanese Pearl Harbor attacks.

So why did this strong and popular leader suddenly lose an election in 1945, just months after one of the biggest victories in the history of mankind – the ending of the Second World War’s phase in Europe?

Vice President Joe Biden’s 1993 Cameo on “Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego?”
