THE OFFICE: It’s Spader Time (Kind Of)

After mourning the departure of Steve Carrell (and watching an array of candidates interview for the job), word came down that James Spader gets the gig. Kind of. In short, Spader’s unconventional, obscenely confident applicant is the new Michael Scott for all of five minutes before working his way up to Sabre CEO (thus freeing up Kathy Bates to focus on Harry’s Law). On the one hand, I like this decision. Spader impressed during the season finale, and if you haven’t seen Secretary, do so this instant. It also leaves room for a familiar face (Andy, Darryl, Dwight, or maybe even Jim) to take Michael’s role. Could revitalize the whole show. But if I’m being honest, when I had heard that another finale guest star, Catherine Tate, seemed poised to join the Dunder Mifflin team, I was curious and kind of excited to see what she would bring to the table, having to deal with (and as crazy as) the rest of the staff. Maybe I just wanted to see her suggested masseuse and a “Zen” office as a reality. In any event, I am looking forward to the season premiere. Kind of.
