TK's Take on Steve Carell's Final Episode of The Office

My apologies to those who were expecting to see my review of last night's episode entitled 'Goodbye Michael,' I had a friends party to attend but don't worry I had my things in order, it was watching the episode first then the party, there was no way I was going to miss this historic television event!

So my fellow Dunder Mifflin friends, is it me or do you feel off today? If you love the show like I do it feels weird to think that next week, for the first time in seven years we're going to see an episode of The Office without Michael Scott running the ship. Give it a minute to sink in if you must but we must come to grips with it sooner then later even if we don't want too. If anyone from NBC does happen to come across this (hey I can dream) I beg you as a fan please do not extend Will Ferrell's stay on the show. What I have been thinking was proven correct last night, if he stays on the show, it will go south fast. Call me crazy but he just doesn't fit in with this cast. He comes across loud and flamboyant and just doesn't mesh with the current group of people on it. Watching him lsat night go on that sales call with Andy was just painful and the way he came across wasn't funny. I wasn't laughing one bit with that.

But anyways onto what is most important here and that's the departure of Michael Scott. I absolutely loved everything about how he said goodbye to people because it was all so moving and touching and you can call me a big softie if you want but that's the kind of episodes I like the best. Loved him on the top of the building as he was becoming more acclimated to the higher altitudes that he'll be facing when he moves to Colorado. I immediately loved his interaction with Dwight and how he should prepare himself for the bears he could be coming in contact with as well. No you don't put salami in your pants. Too damn funny!

I thought the way they handled his goodbye last night was done to perfection. I loved how he was leaving that day and not the next just like he was telling everyone, thought it was genius. For me though the most touching moments were the personal goodbyes he did with a few of the cast members and I'd like to touch on a few now. First I loved his goodbye with Dwight. I'll be honest I didn't see that letter of recommendation coming and for me the thing that made that scene so awesome and powerful was the tremendous reaction Dwight gets when he reads that letter. Such good acting is done by Rainn Wilson in this moment it made me want to cry, ok fine, made me cry, this is the first of many times I'll admit to you guys I cried, like I said I'm a softie, but anyways. The two of them playing paintball together and goofing around for the last time it was something special to watch.

Another goodbye moment that stood out to me was him talking with Erin. (By the way I hate Gabe and everything about him, show could do without him, that's just me.) He really did become like a father figure to her as the show progressed and I thought it was such a touching final moment the two had as he kissed her on the top of the head and said you don't need a mother when you got me, was truly special.

But I want to save the best two goodbyes for last. First up was the moment when Jim goes into Michael's office and realizes that Michael is leaving today. That scene, the two to three minutes that it was, was so truly emotional and vintage Office, I instantly was tearing up. Jim who really was fond of Michael showed such sadness that he was leaving and only wanted him to be happy and reminded Michael that he was absolutely doing the right thing by moving to Colorado with Holly. The exchange back and forth was so well executed and written and it has really become maybe one of my ultimate favorite moments the show has ever done.

The whole time Michael is crossing off his goodbye list, one name remained, Pam. So while Pam is out doing her own thing, Michael is on his way to the airport for his last on screen time with us the audience at home. This to me is the best scene the show has ever done period. After Michael takes off his microphone and gives out a classic that's what she said, Pam rushes into the airport to say her goodbye to Michael and the silent goodbye was perfect. I don't think we needed to hear what they were saying because honestly we kind of already knew. Michael and Pam sure they butted heads throughout the course of the show, but there was a real special connection the two of them shared and it was executed perfectly in that silent goodbye moment. Cue back to Pam telling the camera crew that he is happy he gets to see Holly tonight and that he gets to spend the rest of his life with her. It was so touching and moving how could you not cry.

All in all my friends, I feel a bit more sad now after writing this because it got me thinking about the episode again. Thank God for my DVR because I'll probably watch it again tonight, tomorrow and the next night if only to catch another glimpse of the brilliance that is Michael Scott and the genius that is Steve Carell. Thank you so much for the wonderful memories Steve, you're truly a great comedic actor and the show will never be the same without you!!!

And that my friends is TK's take.


Other random funny moments:

-Michael's goodbye with Oscar, Angela and Phyllis.

-Creed coming out of the woman's bathroom.

-Andy stepping up to the plate and signing that client.

-Oscar's look into the camera when Angela is showing Michael the pictures.

-Michael's goodbye with Kevin and telling Kevin never to be satisfied with who you are.

-Toby telling Michael he has a brother in Coloardo, how freaking funny was that!

TK's Takeout: Top 10 Must See Summer Movies: 2 & 1

Well boys and girls, the climax of the countdown has come and it is time for me to unveil the two movies you won't want to miss this summer. After the past couple of days it really is no surprise why I chose these two movies a few days ago to be at the top of my countdown, they are going to be awesome ends to two extremely popular franchises. They both have die hard loyal fan bases who are going to rush out to midnight showings all over the world and make these two movies, two of the highest grossing films of 2011. But before I unveil the top 2 dogs, here's a look at numbers 10-3:

10. Green Lantern
9. Cowboys and Aliens
8. Bad Teacher
7. Friends With Benefits
6. The Hangover Part 2
5. Crazy Stupid Love
4. Thor
3. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Now drum roll please, my pick for the number 2 must see movie of the summer goes too:

2. Transformers: Dark of the Moon, opens July 1st, stars Shia LaBeouf, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson.
TK's Quick Take- Without a moments hesitation did I know that T3 was going to be near the top of my list and after the trailer debuted yesterday I almost flipped flopped it with number one but I just couldn't pull the trigger. I thought about doing a 1A and 1B thing but that wouldn't be fair to anyone. This movie is going to be different and way better then Transformers 2 and I'll tell you why.

T2 was a rushed script. No one could predict the success that T1 was going to have and the studio, like all studios do after a huge commercial hit, want a sequel and they want it out fast, no matter the results. T2 translated into a lot and I mean a lot of big box office dollars but left many critics and fans slamming the movie. It was actually one of the worst reviewed movies of the year, T2 that is. Transformers: Dark of the Moon is also written by a new writer this time around and it should provide a new refreshed plot for us to follow. Director Michael Bay says this is going to be his last Transformers movie, but something tells me it won't be! This movie is also Megan Fox less, and thank God. She doesn't bring or add anything to this franchise and I think this movie will be better off without her! Look for unbelievable visual affects along with the blowing of shit up, epic battles between the Autobots and Decepticons and most importantly a fantastic end to this exciting franchise.

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction: This movie I think will be one of the top 3 grossing movies of the year. People are going to flock to this movie in big numbers and I think that we are all going to be very pleasantly surprised at how good of a story this one is, not to mention the fights, I mean the fights are going to be awesome, and if you don't believe me, watch this trailer below!


Now the time has come, nine movies up and nine movies down, and just one remains. So without further delay I proudly present to you my number one movie:

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, opens July 15th, stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Ralph Fiennes.
TK's Quick Take- If you were like me, then you were left wanting so much more after Deathly Hallows Part 1 ended with Voldemort stealing the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's grave. (Side note- how bad ass was that scene!) I remember the first Harry Potter movie coming out years ago and it seems almost sad to think about that this is going to be the last one ever made, it's the final chapter of a truly epic saga of movies. For those of you who haven't read the books I won't spoil anything for you but needless to say if you thought HP7 Part 1 was slow, then my friends, Part 2 is going to take you on an action pack ride you won't soon forget.

This movie is going to be non-stop in your face action, epic battle scenes, the race to destroy the remaining horcruxes and of course the showdown between Voldemort and Harry. I'm getting giddy just typing this out my friends, that's how excited I am for this movie. You will be thrilled along this ride, saddened and most of all entertained while watching this movie. It's going to be such an amazing movie to see on screen because for those of you who did read the book you know how intense the final book is. I for one can not wait to see the finished product this July and if the trailer is any indication, we are all going to be very satisfied.

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction: The number one movie on my countdown will also be the highest grossing movie of 2011 and could challenge some opening weekend dollar records as well, you heard it here first!!!


Thanks to everyone who checked out my countdown and left me comments. Again leave me comments and let me know what you're top 2 movies are for this year. Do you agree with my picks or disagree, sound off!

And I'll see you at the movies this summer!!!

TK's Takeout: Top 10 Must See Summer Movies: 4 & 3

Hello avid movie fans...are we enjoying the countdown so far? I bet a lot of you were surprised to see the Hangover part 2 so low on my countdown but there are a lot of good movies coming out this summer and I had to make some difficult decisions. Up next on this list are numbers 4 and 3. One pertains to an epic warrior while the other refers to a captain of legendary honor and dignity, well maybe not that last one. But before I unveil those two movies, let's take a quick look at numbers 10-5.

5. crazy stupid love
6. hangover 2
7. friends with benefits
8. bad teacher
9. cowboys vs aliens
10. green lantern

So without further delay here is my number four must see movie this summer:

4. Thor, opens May 6th, stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins.
TK's Quick Take- Finally the God of thunder has received his own movie. I'm a huge superhero nerd, if you couldn't tell already, and when I heard they were making a big screen version of Thor I was giddy to say the least. I love the selection of going with an unknown actor, Hemsworth, to play Thor, because this will allow him to portray Thor as he sees fit and to ultimately play him in future movies, alas, The Avengers and most likely Thor sequels.

Throw in Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins and this cast is dynamite. The story sounds very promising and the trailers have left me wanting so much more. I don't know too much about Thor but I am very excited to see his story unfold on the big screen in a couple of weeks from now. I think Thor will be an excellent movie and if done right should be a very big box office grosser. The action and visual affects look to be very well done and I expect big things from Thor this May.

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction: I think Thor will start May off with a bang. I think it will go straight to number one at the box office and fans will be very happy after leaving the theaters wanting much much more.


3. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, opens May 20th, stars Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane and Penelope Cruz.
TK's Quick Take- I'll just go ahead and say it, I love Johnny Depp and I have loved all three of the previous Pirate movies. I was beyond excited when I heard they were doing a fourth pirates movie and that Depp would be reprising the role of our favorite Captain Jack Sparrow. Sure Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are gone, but who needs them? This franchise is so widely loved and adored by all genres, that it is going to be a world wide smash without them.

I was rather excited to hear that McShane and Cruz were cast in this movie because they both bring something new to the screen then in previous installments. McShane as the infamous pirate Blackbeard and Cruz playing a mysterious woman from Sparrow's past should add both mystery and excitement to the franchise. Throw in mermaids, zombies and the fountain of youth and you have an adventure film that will surely be a must see movie this summer. I am already just waiting to hear when tickets will go on sale for P4 because like many out there I will be there opening weekend ready to set sail with Captain Jack and the rest of his God forsaken crew!!!

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction: Will open to huge box office dollars and when is all said and done will show that even after a couple of years away, the pirates franchise is still alive and kicking!!! Will be one of 2011's top 10 grossing films!!!


So guys, what do you think? Are you excited for Thor, the God of Thunder? And are you excited to set sail again with Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew of mis-fits? Let me know what you think and be sure to check back tomorrow for numbers 2 and 1!!!


Hey guys, sorry about Idol again

If you may have noticed there was no American Idol recap for the second straight week, I do apologize because I had to work last night and didn't have time to watch the show to review it. And the same will be said for next Wed. too, I have to work the closing shift so there won't be an Idol recap.

Lots of big TV events tonight and none bigger then The Office and Steve Carell's last episode, happy viewing!

TK's Takeout: Top 10 Must See Summer Movies: 6 & 5

I hope everybody has been enjoying the countdown so far? I have gotten some positive feedback from my selections to date and with my next two picks, some might question why I have one of these movies so far down on the countdown. Well, to answer that, there are just so many good movies coming out this summer and it was rather hard to put them in an order, but I had to and that's why all the movies landed where they are. Up next are two movies both of the same genre but both containing completely different plots. So without further a due here's a look at the next two movies on TK's Top 10 Must See Summer Movies!!!

A quick recap:
10. Green Lantern
9. Cowboys and Aliens
8. Bad Teacher
7. Friends with Benefits

6. The Hangover Part 2, out May 26th, stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong.
TK's Quick Take- If the first movie you make becomes the highest grossing comedy of all time and becomes one of the most talked about and quoted movies of all-time, what is a major studio to do? about round up the director and cast of the first one and make a sequel and let chaos run rapid again, check! The gang is all back for a second go and friends, I can not freaking wait! From the second they announced they were doing another Hangover, I'll be quite honest, I was as giddy as a school girl.

I loved the original and I know what many people are thinking, are they going to ruin this one? To be honest, we won't know til we see it for ourselves and of course everyone will judge it in their own way, but I don't think they will. Sure it might not be as funny as the original, but very few sequels are as good as their predecessor, but with this cast and crew, we're certain of one thing, laughing. The trailer looks very promising and you just want to know how they got into their state of mind and what mischief they got into and I for one will be in my theater seat popcorn in hand on opening night to see the chaos that the wolfpack gets into. And chances are I'll skip the drink because I have a feeling I'll wanna pee my pants from the laughing!

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction- Opens Memorial Day and what better way to spend Memorial Day then at the movies with friends, seeing the Wolfpack making us fall out of our seats and causing stomach pain from non-stop laughing. Also will be a huge money maker as well.


5. Crazy Stupid Love, out July 29th, stars Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore and Emma Stone.
TK's Quick Take- I've been hearing a lot about this movie since it was in early development and I had to say I was rather excited to hear the premise of this movie and it's a good one. A man (Carell) has the American dream life going for him until his wife (Moore) unexpectedly wants a divorce. So of course he hasn't been on the dating scene for a while and is thrown into the wilderness with no game. Insert the player (Gosling) who takes him under his wings to try and pick up women and from there things just go all over the place.

The first trailer, see below, looks very promising. This cast contains a lot of great comedic actors and I think this movie should be a little bit more on the serious side too, maybe along the lines of Dan in Real Life, who knows? I think it's going to be a very funny movie and have it's sensitive scenes as well that will provide something for a wide range of audience and make a nice little date night movie for you couples out there!

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction- Opens in late July and by that time the big blockbusters will have come and gone. I think it will do quite well as Carell is getting a lot of attention post 'Office' career and with a star loaded cast, I think this will be a movie that appeals to all ages and genres.


So what do you think of these movie picks my friends? Agree or disagree, leave/post a comment below and let me know what your thoughts are on these two choices, and check back here Thursday for numbers 4 and 3 on my Top 10 Countdown.

TK's Takeout: Top 10 Must See Summer Movies: 8 & 7

Well hello friends,

It is day two of my Top 10 Summer Movie Countdown and I'm glad to see that you guys have been checking back to see what my choices are. If you missed yesterday's obviously scroll down and find it on the home page of the blog or here's a quick little recap of numbers 10-9:

10. Green Lantern
9. Cowboys and Aliens

So on deck today we have numbers 8 and 7, both comedies with star loaded casts so without further delay I proudly present the next two movies that you won't want to miss this summer:

8. Bad Teacher, out June 24th, stars Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Jason Segal and Eric Stonestreet.
TK's Quick Take- When I heard the premise of this movie I didn't even have to see a trailer to know I would wait in line for this movie. The combination alone of Diaz, Timberlake and Segal already had me falling out of my chair laughing out loud. Then the debut trailer comes out and my suspicions were proven true, it's going to be one funny ass movie.

The movie follows Diaz a young, lazy and naive teacher who just doesn't care about her job until a new substitute teacher moves in to the school (Timberlake) and she can't help but try to get his attention but in order to do so, she feels the need to get a certain part of her body enhanced. And in order to do so she must win a contest with the students she constantly neglects and bashes. Cue the laughs please! I already see myself quoting one-liners from this movie and with a lot of good comedic actors in one movie, what can go wrong? This movie has the potential to be a box office hit from early trailers, and I'll be first in line to see it this June.

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction- It's going to be a great funny ass movie!


7. Friends with Benefits, out July 22nd, stars Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Woody Harrelson and Emma Stone.
TK's Quick Take- The concept of the movie is certainly an intriguing one to most and then you throw in Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis and you have a pretty good recipe for what is shaping up to be a pretty promising movie. The concept is simple. Two friends who use one another for sex and remain friends. But of course we all know how that tale plays out. The early trailer, see below, is so freaking hysterical, I am expecting a lot of big things.

Many thought this movie wouldn't work because well No Strings Attached just came out and is pretty much an exact same plot line, but I think the story will be different and Justin is on a role with anything he does lately and Mila is fresh off her performance in Black Swan which has earned her a lot of attention and deservedly so, she is a good actress and is only getting better. I look for this movie to have a lot of funny moments and of course for both the guys and girls in attendance some shots of both Justin and Mila in the flesh, so we all will have something to look forward to. But needless to say, I expect FWB to be a very laugh out loud funny movie, that will make a great date night!

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction- The chemistry between Timberlake and Kunis is funny in itself, and will translate into a must see movie that audiences will definitely flock too!


Sound off guys and let me know what you think. Post your comments and thoughts about the trailers below. Will you be checking out these movies I just spotlighted, please let me know. Check back tomorrow afternoon for numbers 6 and 5!!!


Tuesday's Daily Entertainment Dish...

TK's Takeout: Top 10 Must See Summer Movies: 10 & 9

Hello friends and followers of my blog, how are you?

For those of you who know me well, you know I'm a huge fan of not just going to the movies, but am a big fan of the summer blockbuster season. I like to get a head start and see what projects are coming out early so in turn I can provide you guys with the scoop on Hollywood's most anticipated movies for the upcoming summer season.

For the last few years; including my time at the Lewis Flyer Newspaper I would always do a preview for the biggest summer movies. That countdown usually consisted of just five movies but this year with a brand new blog must come a bigger and brand new countdown. So I decided to double my efforts and preview the top 10 films for the summer in greater depth and detail. So without further a due, let's get started with number 10.

And thanks to you guys responding to one of my postings, I will be unveiling two movies each day with number one being revealed at the end of the week!!!

10. Green Lantern, out June 17th, stars Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and Mark Strong.
TK's Quick Take- This movie boasts a pretty solid cast and Ryan Reynolds seems to be the hottest actor in Hollywood lately, and I'm not referencing his looks. His recent films have all been pretty successful commercial hits and people are starting to notice he can really act, so why not put him into the infamous Green Lantern world. A world that has been dying to get to the big screen for quite some time.

The early trailer had me scratching my head but as the new images and trailers and have come online, I'm starting to become a believer. I expect the movie to be a hit with viewers for two reasons. First, people always flock to superhero movies. Take for instance the past few years. The Iron Man franchise and the Batman franchise have been box office titans and while I don't expect Green Lantern to touch Iron Man or Batman type numbers I think people will still check this movie out. There are supposed to be hundreds and hundreds of digital CGI shots so hopefully the finished product doesn't look too fake.

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction- Will be a hit and prove Ryan Reynolds is one of the true leading men in Hollywood now!


9. Cowboys & Aliens, out July 29th, stars Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford.
TK's Quick Take- So if the cast doesn't get you take a look at whose behind the scenes of this movie. Executive producer Steven Spielberg, producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard and directed by Jon Favreau, whose most recent films include oh yeah Iron Man 1 and 2. If you don't recognize any of these names well then you're no movie buff like me, just kidding. This movie can't fail with the cast and crew behind it and from what I've been seeing and hearing this movie looks to become a big summer blockbuster.

If the title doesn't intrigue you what will? Cowboys and Aliens battling it out, sign me up. You have James Bond and Indiana Jones in the same movie, I mean come on people, what more do we need? But all kidding aside, Cowboys and Aliens is going to be a film you won't want to miss. Daniel Craig is apparently kidnapped by the aliens and is returned to Earth wearing some mysterious bracelet that apparently becomes active when the Aliens are near and can shoot down their space craft. Explosions, suspense and a talented group of actors should make for a very worthwhile film and I'm thinking a surprise summer hit.

TK's Takeout Summer Prediction- Cast and crew are some of the biggest names Hollywood has to offer and the story won't be cheesy, so expect a lot of big dollars and positive reviews for Cowboys and Aliens.


Monday's Entertainment Dish...

Here's what making news today:

-Nintendo has confirmed that they will have a new game console out in 2012.

Today probably around 6pm I'll be unveiling numbers 10 and 9 and two more will follow each day. I'll also be posting today's entertainment dish later on as well. So please check back and comment on my choices as well.

The Office: The Return of the Dundees

Ladies and gentlemen, I stand before you a new man. I verbally expressed my hatred for last week's show and questioned whether or not the show could survive post Steve Carell. Heading into tonight's episode and knowing they were doing the second ever Dundee Awards, the last being early in season 2; I had high hopes.

Well, after just finishing this episode my friends, my faith has been restored through the freaking roof. What a spectacular episode we all just witnessed. The lines, the moments both sad and funny and of course the awards themselves, all blended so well with one another and quite frankly it left me wanting and yearning for more.

Let's start with the show's opener. Over the years there have been some openers, but tonight's opener may be my favorite one to date. Michael and DeAngelo going to their co-workers house to let them know personally they have been nominated for a Dundee Award. First up the Halperts. Jim answers the door with bed head and is absolutely shocked to see them standing there and what makes the bit so funny is him telling Pam to stay in the bedroom, don't get up. Cue them next going to Toby's house and throwing eggs at it, simply another priceless moment between Michael and Toby. And last but not least and what shall go down as an epic moment the walk of shame we see Meredith doing. Beat down house, door wide open but yet she has sausages and napkins. Loved the line that DeAngleo says, this reminds me of Katrina.

The two of them played so well together in this episode, a huge turn around from last week's awkward play. Of course Michael who is leaving us wants to train a co-host to take over his legacy, aka his awards and chooses DeAngelo over Dwight, which of course angers Dwight. However, what we don't know is that DeAngelo has a little problem with stage fright and doesn't know how to be quick and witty so Michael calls a conference meeting to help him get over that. Loved the banter between Kevin, Jim and the rest of the gang. Some priceless moments and some great lines as well.

But let's get on to the highlight of the show, the awards themselves. Cue the opening segment with Michael playing other people in the office. I almost fell out of bed when he was portraying Jim, my lord. I texted Brendan immediately while I was watching him, what a scene and a rather good impersonation as well. Father of the year and mother of the year goes to Jim and Pam, sorry what? Meredith? Yes Meredith takes home the mother of the year awards and I love the fact that Dwight wants a picture of the two winners, simply amazing. The diabetes award goes to Stanley and I loved Phyllis saying to the camera, I have diabetes but you don't see me making a big deal about it. God I love her! Then the moment I'm so glad finally happened. The end of Erin and Gabe. The way in which it was handled was so perfect, awkward and laugh out loud funny rolled into one delicious scene. Erin just after accepting her red head hair award says she doesn't feel attracted to Gabe and that she is with the wrong person. (Side note- Andy and Erin will become a couple again and that should feature prominent in the show as it moves forward, just a TK speculation.)

But in one of the more touching moments of the evening, the gang all heads back to the office and they finish out the awards, not before Andy accepts his award for being a college pot head does the whole gang break into song. I absolutely loved it. The tears that Michael has you know are genuine and real because as they're filming this it's gotta be emotional. Sure he's acting, but you just know deep down it means something so much more to be filming some of his last scene's ever on the show. It's been a part of his life for seven seasons now and it's his second to last episode. I found it so touching and yes moving the song and I loved the whole thing.

This show continues to prove while it's one of the best shows to come around in a long time. Next week's episode is going to honestly make me cry and I'm not afraid to say it. I have loved this show ever since my good friend Brendan told me about it. I have become so invested in the show and I love the characters portrayed on it. Steve Carell as Michael Scott to me is truly one of the best TV characters of all-time. Yes all-time. His departure next week is going to be one full of laughs but I'm so anxious to see him say goodbye to not just the fans of the show, that being us at home, but how he handles saying goodbye to specific people in the office, like Jim, Pam and Dwight, and of course Toby.

It's going to be one hell of a roller coaster next week and I'll have a tissue in hand because if you've been a fan of the show like me and have loved it through good times and in bad, the departure of our favorite and true boss of Dunder Mifflin is going to be one for the record books, and will be one that lasts with us for many years to come!!!

See you all back here next week for my recap of Michael Scott's final episode!!!

Hey guys,

Not a whole lot of news going on today but tune in Monday for another installment of the Entertainment Dish.


Some quick happenings

Hey everybody,

So if you did read my American Idol recap you would see that while I only predicted one of the bottom three correctly, that person I picked was the one who went home, so I did predict the right person going home, so pat on the back for me lol.

If you guys watch The Office then please comment on my recap. Do you dislike the arrival of Will Ferrell as much as I did? Share your thoughts and comments.

Also, a decision has been made. Starting Monday the 25, (Monday after Easter) I will be unveiling my Top 10 Must See Movies This Summer, the way you guys wanted- two a day each day of the week, so stay tuned.

Thanks to everybody who frequents my blog regularly, it means a lot.

The Office: Training Day Recap

Well as the departure of Steve Carell looms over the world of The Office, we got our first look at new addition to the show for a four episode guest arc (and after tonight hopefully nothing more) Will Ferrell. My expectations for this show were very high and I have to be honest with all of you, I'm not liking what I'm seeing with this episode and quite frankly I'm a bit worried after seeing this episode.

I thought the opening scene was somewhat funny, the two of them sitting on opposite ends of the bar and then making their way to sitting next to one another before ultimately realizing that the guy each of them is waiting for is the person right next to them. And then as the rest of the staff is introduced to DeAngelo things just took a turn for the worst in my opinion.

I wasn't really a fan of everyone trying to impress DeAngelo as it got old rather fast. Take for instance, Andy doing his stupid over the top gags to impress him as the funny guy of the office. Only one problem, not funny. Darryl trying to impress him by pretending the southwest region is his favorite region, give me a break. We can't turn these characters into something that their not. I understand the path the writers took here in this episode to try and impress the new boss, because well, we all have done that before. I just don't like the way they went about it tonight, too over the top and just bits that weren't funny or memorable.

I still think the right move for this show is to have someone from the staff take over and not hire an outside actor. I firmly believe that the cast they have now is more then enough to carry the show and a big name Hollywood actor would just throw off the vibe of the show, alas tonight's episode with Ferrell. Dwight, Jim and Andy provide more then enough potential to take over the branch and I would kill to see Dwight lead the branch for an entire season, just think of the chaos that he would create.

Sure Jim has done it before but that was handled so poorly by the show because he was never manager, just co-manager. I think in the show's reality, Jim is one of the smartest characters on the show and has the brains to run a branch, heck he went to corporate and applied for Jan's position before ultimately coming back to ask Pam out for a date. And Andy sure he may not be the best at sales, but something within me says Andy Bernard is no quitter, but a winner and he would prove to others he could handle the responsibilities of being a branch manager.

Quite frankly if this is what it might be like post Carell, then as a die hard fan, I'm a little worried. Maybe I'm being too harsh just after one episode with Will Ferrell but as I said earlier, it never really took off for me and that worries me. The cast doesn't need an outside to come in and throw off the balance of the show that we all have become so comfortable with. Will Ferrell is a movie star, not a TV sitcom star and I think after tonight that was shown. I hope for the show's sake and for Carell's sake this doesn't backfire big time.

The show is too well-written most of the time and too thought out too go down the toilet now. Will Ferrell last I heard has only booked a four episode arc so he'll be around for three more episodes and I'm hoping that he does not become a series regular because if that happens, The Office might be closing up shop for good.

American Idol Top 8 Movie Recap

American Idol Top 8:

Well boys and girls, I predicted two of the three bottom three last week but never and I mean never did I picture Pia being sent home. I considered her to be the strongest contestant on the show and I like all who watched the results show last week were left in complete shock. So let’s see if I can sharpen my senses this week and predict whose going home correctly.

Theme- Music from the Movies

Paul McDonald sings; Old Time Rock and Roll

TK Take- I fast forwarded this performance because it was awful. His voice sounded absolutely terrible and he didn’t do this classic song any justice. Seriously why is he on the show. I think this week America will forget that he was even on and will be in serious trouble. Harsh critique for an absolutely terrible performance.

Status- Bottom three without a doubt

Lauren Alaina sings; The Climb

TK Take- Anyone can sing this better then the no talented Miley Cyrus, who are we kidding. I think she does an ok job with the song but I’m not impressed. She has sounded better in recent weeks and I truly think she takes a step back this week with her cover. Her voice I think climbs all over the place in this song and I truly didn’t enjoy her this week at all.

Status- Could be in jeopardy, stay tuned.

Stefano Langone sings; End of the Road

TK’s Take- Still can’t believe I’m watching him perform this week instead of Pia, so I’ll try to look at it a little bit more clearly. I’ll give him some credit he does a pretty good job with the song. He does have a good voice but I still don’t think it’s enough to take him over the hump. There are better male singers in this competition and I think Stefano every week just squeaks by and gets swallowed up in the competition.

Status- Could be in trouble, stay tuned.

Scotty McCreery sings; I Cross My Heart

TK’s Take- I absolutely love this song so I really hope he doesn’t make me look at it differently. It’s one of the most romantic and best love songs ever recorded by the great George Strait. I think he takes this song and knocks it out of the park. He is so in the zone when he sings a country song and it shines through tonight. He knows what works for him and he capitalizes on it every time. His voice wasn’t the greatest at some parts of the song but he still does a good enough job to make it work.

Status- Will continue, is safe another week.

Casey Abrams sings; Nature Boy

TK’s Take- I was really excited when he said he was going to cover In the Air Tonight but he decided to do Nature Boy. Gotta be honest my friends, the song sucked and his performance sucked also. I just have to call them as I see him. The song moved way too slow and his vocals just didn’t do anything for me at all. He has been saved before and I think that after this week the judges are regretting using the save on him instead of Pia. As I was typing this the judges apparently disagree and give him a standing ovation, but will America like it, that’s the question.

Status- Could be in trouble, stay tuned.

Haley Reinhart sings; Call Me

TK’s Take- After hating on Haley for most of the season, the last few weeks I’ve actually grown to like her and her voice more and more. This is a great rock and roll song and I think she does well with it. Was my favorite performance of the night so far, but in my eyes the other contestants before her didn’t show me anything but I think Haley shows off her big vocals and nails the song well.

Status- I think she will be safe

Jacob Lusk sings; Bridge over Troubled Water

TK’s Take- I did predict him correctly in the bottom three last week so here’s hoping he fixes that issue. A good song choice that should fit his voice well. I think that this week he kind of gets lost in the song again like last week. I think Jacob sizzled at the beginning of this competition and is now starting to fizzle out. He hasn’t done anything recently to show that is he current in this competition and I’m starting to think he might be a one trick pony. This song falls flat for me tonight along with his vocals. Sorry Jacob.

Status- A trip to the bottom three maybe? Stay tuned.

James Durbin sings; Heavy Metal

TK’s Take- Finally a performance worth writing about, and Zach Wylde, hell to the yeah. A classic Sammy Hagar song, that sure most people who watch this song probably won’t recognize but I do and I appreciate a rock guy on this show and taking some risks with this song choice. I think his vocals sound really good much better then last week and it made me wanna get up and rock, so I tip my hat off to James, another awesome rock and roll performance!!!

Status- Safe
Best Performance of the Night- James Durbin for Heavy Metal

So here’s my prediction for the bottom 3:


My prediction on whose going home this week: Paul McDonald

Am I right with my assumptions and opinions, please let me know guys and sound off. Thanks everybody!!!

American Idol Top 9 Rock and Roll Recap

American Idol Top 9:

Well last week we saw the Idol stage send two girls home again and this viewer predicted one of two right and I felt proud of myself. So in keeping with standards I’ve set for myself in season’s past, I’m really going to dig in and try to predict the bottom 3 this week along with whose going home. So without further delay, let’s get on with the show!!!

Theme- Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, well this just made my night!!! I’m going to be extra tough because I am a rocker at heart through and through.

Jacob Lusk sings; Man in the Mirror

TK Take- One of the biggest songs in the late great Michael Jackson’s career. I’ve always been a Jacob supporter but sorry dude I don’t think he does anything to make this song his own. It to me sounds like a sing a long. Maybe it’s one of those songs you just don’t mess with but to me it was just an average cover.

Status- Has been safe this whole competition and I don’t see any reason he should start to worry now.

Haley Reinhart sings; Piece of My Heart

TK Take- Well, when I heard she chose to sing Janis Joplin this does seem like the perfect fit to hit the big notes and it’s an all time rock and roll staple song. I have been hating on her for the past few weeks but after hearing her do rock and roll, I must say I’ll ease up a bit. She does this song justice. She has that raw powerful rock and roll tone, that Janis had while she sang it. She seemed to be feeling that song more so in recent weeks, so bravo.

Status- I said bottom three last week but not so fast this week, safe.

Casey Abrams sings; Have You Ever Seen the Rain

TK Take- I love this song and I really hope it turns out well for him. Love the laid back version with just him and his instrument accompanied by the guitarist. I think he nails the song. He changes it up enough to really make it sound completely different from the original and he makes it work, which isn’t easy to do. So far with three contestants done, he has earned performance of the night so far. Great job Casey.

Status- I’m always hesitant to say safe after he was nearly voted off 2 weeks ago, but I’m saying safe.

Lauren Alaina sings; You Make me Feel Like a Natural Woman

TK’s Take- One of the most recognizable songs of all-time if you ask me. Maybe she chose too big of a song for her because in my opinion she just seemed to come across awkward and nervous like she was focusing too much on the singing instead of just letting it come out naturally like she has in past weeks. I don’t think she does enough with the song and she could be in trouble this week.

Status- On shaky ground this week, stay tuned to later.

James Durbin sings; While My Guitar Gently Weeps

TK’s Take- I’m kind of bummed he didn’t choose the big rock out loud song but let’s see what he does with another classic. He is just a natural born rock and roller and I think that his slowed down performance really showed off another side of his vocal range. We know he can hit the big rock screams but this was something laid back and chilled and I really enjoyed it. It’s not the greatest cover of the song ever but I think he does a good job with it. And loved the long high note at the end!!!

Status- I can’t picture him in the bottom three, so I’ll call it safe.

Scotty McCreery sings; That’s Alright Mama

TK’s Take- I don’t know about you guys but Scotty kind of disappointed me this week. I wasn’t feeling the silly faces and dance moves but that’s not what the show is about. I definitely think he can show off the rock side which he does but I can’t picture him as anything other then a country singer, and that’s just my opinion.

Status- He won’t be voted off, so safe.

Pia Toscano sings; River Deep Mountain High

TK’s Take- Well I thought the song itself sucked but her singing doesn’t. I said it last week she is the one with the strongest voice and I think right now she has to be considered the favorite to win it. She showed that she can sing something other then ballads so I’ll give her the props for backing up what she said last week. She just has that it factor when it comes to her voice, well done Pia.

Status- Safe

Stefano Langone sings; When a Man Loves a Woman

TK’s Take- One of the greatest songs ever written and sung, so this is going to be interesting. I did predict him to go home last week so let’s see if he proves me wrong. His voice sounds better this week then it did last week and he does do a pretty good job with the song. He doesn’t do anything to change it up and it’s one of those songs that no one should mess with. It stands the test of time for a reason and I respect him for not changing it up and sticking with it in it’s truest form. Good job Stefano.

Status- I’m going to ponder, stay tuned to end.

Paul McDonald sings; Folsom Prison Blues

TK’s Take- One of the legends of music, Johnny Cash. Not sure how I feel about his voice on this song. He does a good job singing it but I just wasn’t feeling it that much. It was up tempo and fun to snap your fingers with but I felt like it was just ok. Sounded a lot like screaming at times but then again rock and roll is about that at times. So all in all definitely a good job vocally.

Status- I can’t see him in the bottom three.

Best Performance of the Night- James Durbin for My Guitar Gently Weeps

So here’s my prediction for the bottom 3:


My prediction on whose going home this week: Stefano

Am I right with my assumptions and opinions, please let me know guys and sound off. Thanks everybody!!!

Felt like writing...

Hey everybody,

So just got done watching Little Fockers and I must say I wasn't impressed, but who really is with a third installment of any franchise, other then a few good examples, like Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, comes to mind. I just felt like writing about anything right now because well I need to get my mind off things and this felt like the right thing to do.

Thanks again to everybody whose been checking out my blog and who has become a follower I greatly appreciate it. It's been a great success in my eyes and I'm working on some new interesting posts right now that I hope to get out sometime within the next week or two. Mainly and I'm very excited to share it with you is my picks for the Top 10 Must See Movies this Summer, TK style of course. There are a lot of freaking movies to choose from and narrowing down the field to just 10 choices has been rather difficult, so I hope I do you guys right with my picks.

Other then that not a whole lot has been going on. I'm just counting the seconds down til Amanda gets home this Friday. We haven't seen each other in over 2 weeks and I'm going nuts without her home, so needless to say I'm very anxious for Friday to roll around. It's going to be a fantastic weekend and I could really use one.
