One Long, Last Look at The Office

Last week’s penultimate episode of The Office gave us a frustrating glimpse of what might have been. In a season filled with mediocre comedy, intelligence-insulting plot choices[1], and inexplicable character development, we got a flawed but good episode centered largely … Continue reading

SitCombat: The Final Battle

This is the end. Unless SitCombat reformulates around different shows, this will be the last regular edition of the feature. Archer’s season concluded tonight, leaving only one show left to evaluate. Less than a minimum of two programs quite obviously … Continue reading

SitCombat: 4/4/13

SitCombat’s days are numbered. This week is the first of a two-part season finale for Archer.  Once Archer’s finished, that removes the competition for The Office.  No competition, no SitCombat. I may still write a series finale piece on The … Continue reading

SitCombat: 3/14/13

I could begin this week by explaining that SitCombat is tardy thanks to my working late, or my preparing tax documents, or my being a little under the weather. True or not, though, nobody cares. This week marked the first … Continue reading

SitCombat: 2/14/13

As The Office continues its slow, painful march towards the grave, Archer has put together an excellent run of episodes to open its fourth season. Tonight, we get a doubly-long edition of The Office, about which I freely admit I … Continue reading

SitCombat: 2/7/13

30 Rock barely held on to defeat Archer last week, despite the fact that the former was airing its final episode.  With a major hurdle out of the way, Archer may begin to dominate SitCombat for the remainder of its … Continue reading

SitCombat: 1/31/13

I’m not going to pretend that The Office and Archer don’t face an uphill battle tonight. They face off against the series finale of 30 Rock, and it would be disingenuous to behave as if 30 Rock doesn’t have a … Continue reading

SitCombat: 1/24/13

Tick-tock.  30 Rock and The Office are close to wrapping for good, and, with them, so is SitCombat.  Both seem to be going out in style, as they produced high-quality episodes last week. Yet, neither of the venerable NBC franchises … Continue reading

SitCombat: 1/10/13

A long hiatus for the SitCombat shows, coupled with a second delay caused by my pursuing other interests last Thursday, means that this is the first edition of SitCombat in over a month. It will also be one of the … Continue reading

SitCombat: 12/6/12

30 Rock won back its crown (with a wedding episode, no less!), turning back a decent effort from The Office and a mediocre League.  I hate writing these intro parts, so let’s just dive right in, shall we? We get … Continue reading
