TV: Office Spinoff has Leading Lady

*Posted July 17, 2008*

Is anyone really going to watch this? The Office (NBC), an import of the original British show now thinks it has enought material to create a spinoff show. My first gripe is that the concept of a mockumentary in the workplace is not enough to carry the show. You need funny people to do it, and Amy Poehler isn't enough of a draw for me. My second gripe is that this is a spinoff, so they are going to be taking some characters from Dunder Mifflin and giving them their own show. With the exception of Andy Bernard, none of the supporting cast can make it work. I probably won't watch it, and neither should you.
