‘The Office’ coming to Staples

The Office has been on the air for seven and a half seasons, so needless to say the show is pretty popular.  The Office photo: filmpopper.com

Sooo, it makes you wonder why the powers that be have waited so long to make the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper line real and bring it to a store near you.

Comcast, NBC’s parent company, has licensed a paper stock line and it will soon go into production. The product will be made and sold by Staples on their website Quill.com.

Does something sound funny about this arrangement?  It should, because Staples is among Dunder Mifflin’s competitors on the show.  Not only that, Dwight briefly worked at the fictional company’s rival while on a break.

Interesting.

There’s no word yet on when the Dunder Mifflin products will be available or how much they’ll cost. You’ll just have to keep an eye out when you’re in Staples to see if you can snag a ream or two once it’s released.

Pretty Little Liars returns in January

The wildly popular show Pretty Little Liars has been picked up for another season. Pretty Little Liars photo: ashleybenson.net

That’s right, 24 fans of twisty goodness will air during the third season. When the series returns on January 2nd, the storyline will pick up a month after the events that took place during the summer finale.

In case you missed it, the Pretty Little Liars were arrested and fans were left wondering what the fate of the four girls would be.  

Don’t expect the tragedy to bring the girls closer to form an even more united front against the mysterious ‘A.’  Instead, they’ll be fighting and one will be completely shut out.  

What you can expect from season 3 is for a lot more mystery, intrigue, and surprises.

‘Pan Am’ to be grounded?

Mayday!  Mayday!  Pan Am is experiencing turbulence!!Pan Am photo: forums.anandtech.com

Karine Vanasse, one of the show’s stars, posted a tweet that has fans worrying that the series may soon crash and burn.

“Well, we received THE call, #PanAm is only coming back for one more episode after Christmas. But up to the end, we'll give it our all!”

While this does sound pretty ominous, she tweeted again a little later to clarify that there are five new episodes that are set to air between now and February. ABC originally ordered 13 episodes of the highly anticipated series.

But instead of ordering up the usual nine more to make it a full season, they only ordered one. The network plans to air all 14 episodes and it has been said that the show hasn’t yet been cancelled, but considering the lack of new episodes, the show’s future is looking a little bleak.

Maybe they’re waiting to see if the ratings will increase.  We’ll just have to wait and see if the show does a nosedive or manages to pull up at the last minute!

Pan Am fans might be waiting on pins and needles to see if their beloved show will make it past 14 episodes, but fans have absolutely nothing to worry about.
