“That Was Nasty Tricksies” But Still Awesome: SNL “Hobbit/Office” Parody

I will admit this now. I was and have always been an “Office” nerd. From the original UK series to the NBC America version, “The Office” has been one of my favorite shows of all time (next to “30 Rock”).  Whether it was David Brent, Gareth, Tim and Dawn, or it was Michael Scott, Dwight, Jim and Pam – I was there, every step of the way. (Except the last three seasons of the US version. Those weren’t so great).

So when the awesome amazing Martin Freeman (“Hitchhiker’s Guide”, “The Hobbit”, “Sherlock”) hosted SNL this weekend. I was pretty psyched to see which of my favorite characters he crafted would end up being satirized. It was beyond my belief the show would morph both Bilbo Baggins and Tim Canterberry in a Hobbit/Office send off, complete with Brent impersonation and Slough’s grey, sad atmosphere surrounding a soul deadening corporate office complex.

This is so good, I want to put someone’s stapler in jello!
