Mel Gibson Rides Feathered Serpent to Boffo B.O.
Nussbaum: So, what'd you think?
Nussbaum: You're a huge Office fan, no?
Sternbergh: I am, it's true.
Sternbergh: Like most, I like the American one but revere the British one.
Sternbergh: So it was nice, for one night, to be able to put aside the international squabbling
Nussbaum: Yes, it's good to shut our ears to the war and enjoy one night of laughter.
Nussbaum: Oh, you mean because it was written by Ricky Gervais.
Sternbergh: Even though I know he's the exec producer of the U.S. one and a professed fan, I still like to think that the two casts hate each other and might one day have a rumble
Sternbergh: Gareth would definitely be an asset in that case
Nussbaum: Like in the Michael Jackson "Bad" video?
Sternbergh: Exactly. But with more neckties.
Nussbaum: So, did this episode have a distinctive Gervaisian flavor to you?
Sternbergh: As the official Heroes newbie, what did you think?
Nussbaum: So. Turns out it's a little bizarre for me to watch the quasi-finale of a plot-arc show I'd never seen before.
Nussbaum: Which is not to say it was hard to follow, since it seemed to be made up of the scavenged body parts of shows I've already seen.
Nussbaum: What did you think?
Sternbergh: I kept wondering what it was like for someone watching it the first time.
Sternbergh: And hearing them deliver lines like "He's believes that if he saves the cheerleader, he'll save the world"
Sternbergh: without laughing
