  3. Paley Center “Cracking the Code” Panel Discusses Television’s Portrayal of Women in STEM

    Could television be a force to galvanize young girls towards science, technology, engineering, and math, and is it the job of the actors and writers who work on these shows to constantly push for better representation? That was the question at the heart of Monday's Paley Center panel in New York, during which women from all over the industry came together to talk about their own experiences with STEM, their favorite scientific women on television, and what we might accomplish in the future.

  5. Watch John Cho, Seth Rogen, and More Audition For The Office [VIDEO]

    Consider the Following

    How different would The Office be if John Cho (a.k.a. Hikaru Sulu from J.J. Abrams' Star Trek) was Jim? What if Seth Rogen was Dwight? Well, now you can find out! Lost audition tapes featuring these actors and more, including Adam Scott, Bob Odenkirk, and Katheryn Hahn, paint a very different picture of what the show could have been. Now that all of the actors are so closely tied to their respective characters, it's hard to imagine anyone else playing them! (via Death and Taxes)

  7. Woman Recreates Adventure Time, Mad Men, Arrested Development Openings For Her Husband [VIDEO]

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    When I heard the description of what this video would be, it sounded cool. "Thought you might be interested in a project I made for my husband for his birthday, a collection of re-created television show intros based on his life, friends, and interests," Leigh Lahav wrote to us. And then I actually watched. I'm now giving Leigh a standing ovation and I hope her husband Oren gave her a big kiss. Watch as Leigh injects herself, her husband, and his entire life into the television openings of Adventure Time, The Office, and tons more.

  8. 10 Pieces of British Slang I’d Like to See Adopted in America

    I watch a lot of British television. My wife just watched all of Downton Abbey in about a day, and I love Doctor Who so much that we named our daughter Amelia. We're two cultures separated by a common language, but the more British television I watch, the more envious I've become of some of their slang terms, and I'd like to see some of them adopted into American English so I can use them without sounding like a jerk who's just been watching too much BBC.

  9. The Hobbit Meets The Office In This Unexpected Parody [VIDEO]

    There And Back Again

    This is not your run of the mill mash-up. This is a literal one. YouTuber EagerBeaverFilms took footage from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and slipped in faces of the characters from Britain's The Office. To rather unusual effect. See for yourself.

  11. Mindy Kaling Shares the Very Human Emotions She Felt When Her Pilot Was Picked Up For Series

    million dollar lady

    First, we have great news concerning Mindy Kaling's pilot that she filmed for Fox -- it was picked up for series, and that series also has a title: The Mindy Project! (Exclamation point ours.) The announcement came during this week's TV upfronts, and the newly-minted sitcom showrunner kept a diary at Vulture for the duration. Her journey began in Boston at her childhood home and ends in New York, but not before a layover in the Land of Tears of Joy.

  12. Mindy Kaling Is Shooting a Pilot for Fox, Will Leave The Office If It’s Picked Up

    Clever Girl

    NBC may be losing one of its brightest comedy stars -- and it looks like it's their own darn fault, too! Mindy Kaling, author and star of The Office, has been shopping around a script for a sitcom pilot about a "Bridget Jones-type doctor." And NBC wasn't interested. (Really? Um, okay then!) However, Fox thought it would be a good idea to hop on the Kaling train -- probably sensing the success of other comedies featuring quirky female characters, like The New Girl with Zooey Deschanel -- and picked up the pilot. Should it go to series, NBC will have to wave goodbye to Kelly Kapoor. Their loss!

  13. NBC Working on The Office Spin-Off Starring Dwight Schrute

    Deadline reports that NBC is working on a spin-off from The Office featuring resident nutty main character, Dwight Schrute, played by Rainn Wilson, for a potential launch in 2013. With The Office having lost its direction and most of its emotional value even before Steve Carell left the show and took character Michael Scott with him, The Office is still one of NBC's most recognizable shows, so it wouldn't be very surprising to see them try to keep the universe alive in some form another after The Office finally kicks the bucket.

  14. Rainn Wilson’s Dwight Is Getting An Office Spin-Off

    Cautiously Optimistic

    What is going on? What are you doing?! NBC is giving Dwight Schrute his own spin-off from The Office in 2013. Ok, no, we're actually really excited about this, we just wanted to use those quotes. And this one. Bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica.

  15. The Dunder Mifflin Office as a Counter-Strike: Source Map [Video]

    Have you gotten sick of playing cs_office? Yeah, me too. About six years ago. How about spicing it up a little with cs_theoffice? Yes, that The Office. This video, uploaded by Blitzkrieg1981, shows an uncannily detailed map of the Dunder Mifflin office that has me itching to break out Counter-Strike: Source again. Crazily enough Blitzkrieg1981 says he isn't finished with the map and is looking to recruit someone to take over. Hopefully he can find someone, because I can't think of a CS:S map I'd rather play, besides maybe some good old fashioned fy_pool_day.

  16. The Office‘s Mindy Kaling To Produce And Voice Character In A New NBC Animated Series

  17. The Craziest Candy-Turned-Video Game Announcement and Cast Pairing You'll See Today

    Rather than make jokes, I will let the actual news do the comedy for me: Capcom has announced a downloadable game for PC, Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network featuring the Sour Patch Kids, starring Method Man and Creed Bratton of The Office. To reiterate, this is a real game based on the Sour Patch Kids candy, being made by the same people who make Mega Man and Resident Evil, starring a pairing of Method Man and Creed Bratton from The Office. The game is called World Gone Sour.

  18. Online Staples Outlet Strikes Deal with NBC to Sell Actual Dunder Mifflin Brand Paper

    Though Michael Scott has left the show, we're stil watching The Office. Whether or not that is because it is on the same channel and around the same time as Parks and Recreation and we may or may not be leaving our televisions on because it is good to have background noise, we can all feel a little giddy when one of Staples' online outlets, Quill.com, has struck a deal with NBC parent company Comcast to sell actual, real-life Dunder Mifflin paper.

I bet you never thought you'd hear a Black Rider say, "I'm trying to use The Google." (via OMFGeek!)

  20. Brother Tells Sister to Stay Out of Room, Sister Does This Instead

    Almost Totally Excellent

    We at The Mary Sue represent sisters both eldest and youngest. Which is, in part, why we love this story so much. Because this kid, Brandon, went to summer camp for four weeks. His last words to his sister were "stay out of my room." She did not obey, nor did any other member of their family. Or Dwight Schrute. Or Darth Vader. Follow the jump for highlights from the gallery of pictures from Brandon's room.
