No deals in place yet but Deadline is reporting an Office spin off in the works for Rainn Wilson where Dwight would operate Schrute Farms as a bed and breakfast (deadline.com) or some shit like that. Ugh.

Also some news in there about the still-unsettled prospects for another season of The Office.

Don't believe everything you read in the press, ok?

It is time to pull the plug on The Office. Now, I realize NBC will stick with it as long as possible since it's one of their few ratings hits, but the show's natural end was when Michael Scott left. This current season with Andy rehashing old Michael 'please like me' plots, this go-nowhere romance with he and Erin, the completely unnecessary Robert California character, etc. is just a waste of time.

I agree, The Office has lost it's edge, and I don't really have much interest in a Dwight spin-off. The time-slot would be much better saved to keep Community around. Community took over The Office as my must see show last year, and it's only built on that this year.

I fell seven episodes behind on The Office this season. I just deleted them from my DVR and canceled the series recording because it felt like such a chore to catch up.

It made me a little sad, but I'm just going to pretend "Goodbye, Michael" was the series finale.

Just so there's a dissenting voice in here (and so robots of the future don't read this thread and think we ALL hate The Office), I like The Office just fine as it is right now.

It hasn't lost its edge and I don't think it's at all a rehash. I won't say that Michael Scott is in no way like Andy Bernard, but they ARE incredibly different characters.

I would gladly welcome another couple of seasons of The Office.

I pretend "Goodbye, Michael" is the series finale and it immediately follows "Company Picnic."

I loathe Gabe. Easily in my top 5 of worst TV characters.

I don't think this season is terrible because of no Michael, I think it is terrible because they added Robert California.

If you really want to argue about the end of the series I would say Jim and Pam's wedding was about the point where I realized this show was probably out of original ideas.

A Dwight show would be terrible and wouldn't last 6 episodes.

I will shout down anyone who disses Robert California. Gabe has turned into a good loser character, the Jerry of The Office.

I can say, without hyberbole, this statement is the most accurate ever uttered in all of human history.

My Tweet last week, re: The Office after that, ugh, pool party:

@BackoftheHead
Perhaps it's time to rename The Office to "Things That Just Happen, Sometimes in The Office, To Characters We Still Sort of Like, Barely."

I debate Gabe is needed, now that people like Dwight. Andy & Kevin are the loveable losers, but the show needs an awkward loser loser. An office can't work without a toilet.

So apt.

Try watching the pilot episode back-to-back with "Pool Party" to see home much the tone of the show has changed.

There's no hero, no villian, no conflict, no awkward moments, no sweet romantic moments, ... the show is just a bunch of people.

Any executive still pondering this should be forced to watch the entire season of Joey.

I reckon a show starring Dwight would be about the same - he's good as a supporting character but as a lead? Not so much.

If you didn't think Erin returning Andy's ring and commenting that she immediately knew it was his because she recognized the Bernard Family Crest was a sweet romantic moment ... then you, sir, have no heart.

I thought Joey was fun.

I must be in the very minority.

On the other side of the coin is Frasier. This may work if they can keep the essence of the character alive while going in a totally different direction with the show, it could work. I'm not so convinced a beet farm will draw a new audience while maintaining a high majority of the remaining The Office audience though.

I'd watch it and give it shot though. Mostly because I'd feel obligated at first. Kinda like I did with Joey.

Wasn't Joey a spin-off of Friends, which was a spin-off of Joey's show which was a spin-off of Married with Children?

Maybe the two Joey shows aren't linked...
