Joss Whedon is directing an episode of The Office? How freaking cool is that? The show with the best comedic dialogue being directed (at least one episode) by a guy known for films/television with great dialogue? It sounds like a great match, at least in theory. I know some purists might think it blasphemy that those Americans are at it again with their remakes of British shows, but damn if itsn't funny. I've been a Carrell fan since the Even Stephen skits on The Daily Show, so I suppose I was predisposed to like the show.
I posted my review of Lou Anders first anthology as Pyr publishing director , Fast Forward 1. From beginning to end, a very solid collection.
