Seriously, A Reboot Of ‘The Office’ Sounds Like A Terrible Idea

Published

on

There have been reports that NBC is interested in reviving The Office for the 2018-19 season, bringing back a mix of new and old cast members to the Greg Daniels-created workplace comedy.

The only problem? It’s going to suck. BIG TIME.

I’m sorry people, but you can’t remake a classic like The Office, especially without the people who made it so funny in the first place. Steve Carell, John Krasinski, B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson, and Ellie Kemper? There’s no chance of them coming back (save for a cameo), as they’re huge stars now.

NBC is reportedly already searching for a new regional manager to replace Michael Scott at Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch, but honestly who can play that role as well as Steve Carell did? Nobody.

As for the “mix of old cast members,” does anyone really care about Stanley, Creed, Angela, Phyllis, Toby, and the rest of ’em? Nope, they were just background filler that barely got any air time to begin with..

C’mon guys, the last few years of The Office stunk without Steve Carell, a far cry from the show’s glory days. So leave well enough alone, and try coming up with an original idea instead.

What do you think about The Office getting a reboot?

The Grand Tour Season 3 Trailer

Get excited people, because season three of The Grand Tour is returning to Amazon Prime on January 18, 2019. And if this first trailer is any indication, we’re in for one fun season!

As always, we’ve got plenty of drifting, burnouts, yelling, crashing, explosions and sweeping shots, with ex-Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May driving a wide variety of high horsepower vehicles, including the Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, Lamborghini Urus, Porsche 911 Turbo, and McLaren Senna.

There are also some death-defying stunts (like Hammond once again risking one of his nine lives as he struggles to keep his Jeep on a tiny bridge over a steep canyon in Colombia), along with other strange and unique challenges that are sure to please.

You can watch the trailer for The Grand Tour season three here:

We think the new season looks like a lot of fun, and January 18th can’t get here soon enough!

Do You Think A&E’s Live PD Is Real Or Fake?

Published

on

A few months back, I was flipping through the channels on TV and stumbled onto a Cops-type show on A&E called Live PD, and I was instantly drawn in.

For those of you who haven’t seen Live PD before, it’s a popular TV series on the A&E network that follows police from 8 different police departments from around the country in real time, broadcasting everything from DUI checkpoint stops to high-speed chases, bar fights to gang shootings, domestic disputes to drug busts, using a mix of dash cams, fixed rig and handheld cameras to capture all of the action.

And amazingly enough, there seems to be PLENTY of crazy stuff happening at all times, to the point where you start to wonder if this is actually for real, or an elaborate production made to look real. I mean seriously, I’ve seen cops in Greene County pull over someone driving a riding lawnmower on the streets on multiple occasions. How is this a thing?!

So I decided to do some digging and see if I couldn’t answer the question on everyone’s mind: Is Live PD real?

As far as I can determine, it actually is, with one caveat. While the events that happen on Live PD actually happen, with real police officers and people, they’re not exactly appening “live” anymore. Apparently in 2016, there was an incident in which a woman recognized the body of her son, who had been shot to death. Since that incident, the show has operated on a slight delay (20-60 minutes), to prevent something like that from happening again.

Live PD

We even talked to a person on Reddit who appeared on Live PD (for a domestic issue involving his girlfriend and her ex), and he verified that everything we see on TV is for real.

So how they can legally show people’s faces unblurred, considering they haven’t signed a release waiver in order to appear on screen?

The laws vary by state, but there is generally an exception for news/newsworthy material. The material should not be creative — it should be providing information, and the recording must take place in public. Given that Live PD is a reality show, and it follows real people suspected of wrongdoing, there is a reasonable argument for the producers to say the they are protected by law based on the news exemption.

Based on everything we could find, we have no reason to believe that Live PD is fake. While it might seem incredible that stuff like this goes on right under our noses, a quick search of the local police blotter will tell you otherwise!

Make sure you tune in to Live PD every Friday and Saturday night from 9pm-12am.

Watch The Wild And Crazy ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 2 Trailer

Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2

Start pumping your fist people, because MTV has released the trailer for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 2, and this time the guidos are packing their bags and heading to Las Vegas!

Crazy, right? It seems like they just left Miami, but I guess you can’t blame the producers, who wanted to hurry up and film another season before The Situation got sentenced to prison.

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, DJ Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro are all back for another season (and another paycheck), and it looks like Angelina might even make another appearance.

This time around, the crew gets their partying on in Sin City, before heading back to where it all began: the Jersey shore. It should be another fun season full of drunken meatballs falling, Sitch binge eating, Pauly and Vinnie’s bromance, and Ronnie making bad decisions.

Mark your calendars for Jerzday, August 23rd at 8/7c on MTV for the premiere you can’t miss!
