Thursday Night TV Open Thread

David Brent! Michael Scott! Robert DeNiro at some point? Night of a thousand stars! Although, you can march your movie stars up and down the halls of Dunder Mifflin (or Kabletown) all day long and they still will not shine as bright as Andy on Parks and Recreation. How is it even possible that we have iPads and a repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and photo-realistic dinosaurs in the movie Jurassic Park but Chris Pratt still doesn’t have his own TV show? Obviously, the technology is there. Catch up, popular entertainment! Seriously, it would not be that complicated. You could have a half hour of Chris Pratt drinking through a super-straw every week and I would watch it. And if he talked about oligarchies and rolled over car-hoods in the parking lot every once in awhile, bonus! Meanwhile, did anyone notice Hannibal Buress in this week’s 30 Rock? Hi, Hannibal Buress! Easter egg for the superfans. Wait. WAIT. Imagine this: Chris Pratt…and Hannibal Buress…in Their Own TV Show. Even better.

Right?
