To those of you who watch the show Newsroom, isn’t it god damn great? To those of you who don’t, get with it. It’s an excellent satirical piece pointing out the flaws of today’s media buried within a fictitious show that holds the record of the fewest exposed boobs on an HBO original series. To those of you who want to see it but haven’t gotten around to it but have seen the American version of the show “The Office” before, you’re going to see some familiarities. (Maybe just one. Probably just one.) Just in case you don’t pick up on it, here’s the big doppelganger you’re going to want to punch yourself in the face for, and had to wait a million painstakingly romantically charged seasons of “The Office” to finally be satisfied with:
Jim is a tall, confident nerd who’s just trying to do right by the ladies in his life, and Maggie is a quirky little blonde who doesn’t know what she wants or what she should do with it. They kissed and then he called it off, but come on. We all know what is going to happen.
Moral of the story, the “Jim & Pam” relationship was great in The Office. Repeated, it’s just god damn annoying. Get them together now or kill one of them.
P.S. His name is Jim in the show. Were you even trying.
