Take a look at the promotional features for this week’s episode of The Office entitled Work Bus which shall air on Thursday, October 18 2012 @ 9:00pm eastern time on NBC [USA]and Global[ Canada]
The staffers hit the road in a rented bus when the building is deemed unsafe. Meanwhile, Nellie reaches out to Andy for help in adopting a baby, and Jim uses pie to spread cheer to Pam.[ TV Guide]
How will the workers respond to the change in work environment on the bus and what tensions might arise from everyone being in even closer quarters? Why would Nellie reach out to Andy for assistance, given the two’s strained relationship since Andy has returned from his retreat?What will Andy’s reaction to Nellie’s request be? Will he try to jeopardize her attempts? What are your thoughts on Nellie even being a suitable candidate for adopting a baby?
Will Jim and Pam work through the challenges which their relationship faces as a result of Jim keeping his project a secret? Will Jim’s pie work?
While the spinoff would ideally include all of the show’s current characters, actors John Krasinski[ Jim], Jenna Fischer[Pam, BJ Novak[ Ryan] and Ed Helms[ Andy] are still negotiating contracts for the potential forthcoming season. Both Krasinski and Helms have films lined up which would require reduced number of episodes to accommodate their involvement with film productions. At the same time, Raiin Wilson is expected to depart from the show to star in a Dwight based spinoff which is currently scheduled to debut in early 2013.James Spader would not appear as Robert California as the actor announced in Februry 2012 that he has decided to leave his post at The Office. Obviously many of these factors will need to be given consideration as a new direction for the show is considered.
What are your thoughts on a new version of The Office and what differences would you like to see to this version. Particularly, what types of characters would you like to see in this new version?How do you think Raiin Wilsons absence and the possible reduced roles of Krasinki and Helms would impact the show?
