Slough Hands

“There are viewers who do not just love The Office, they want to marry it and have its children,” Alessandra Stanley wrote in the NY Times yesterday. She’s right. It’s a cult. I’ve met some of these people.

Did you miss last night’s painfully funny two-hour special on BBC America? It will be on again this weekend. Divo it.

Here’s the lovely theme song.

Stereophonics – “Handbags & Gladrags”

The history of “Handbags & Gladrags” can be found here.

Stereogum likes Stereophonics. Disco Stu likes disco music.

The American take on the series premieres mid-season on NBC. The cast includes Steve Carrell, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, John Kasinski, and Kevan’s friend B.J. Novak. Ricky Gervais is executive producing so hopefully it won’t suck too much.

In the meantime, you can watch The Office: The Complete Collection starting 11/16.
