    I was sitting here thinking about the Michael Scott shout outs, Dwight and Jim antics, maybe a bash Toby toy that could be on it. Feel like there is a lot of material to work with. Any other Office fans think this could be good?

    Only if it's this one.

    That ship has sailed market wise, but I agree more humorous pins are needed. Too many serious themes as of late (minus TBL).

    A Gangnam Style pin would be great too speaking of pin themes that are way too late to exist.

    Love the office, watch it daily before bed as a ritual. That being said....

    A pin based off of it? ZzZzZzZz...

    What is exciting about the office? Nothing. Its a drab dramedy thats low key and anti climactic. All those things do not make good pinball.

    that would be really cool. love michael scott and that show

    My kids watch it on Netflix constantly. If done well it could be fun and have a lot of humor.

    I've watched every episode, but I have zero interest in playing a pinball version of it.

    However, I *would* be interested in Arrested Development. Not quite sure why that theme would be a better pin, but I'm certain it would.

    I feel like we would be good friends... My girlfriend and I do the same thing. 2 episodes every night before bed.

    Liked the US version a lot before it got bad. I never gave up on the show and things really improved the last few seasons. Theme for a pin. I don't think it would be a good one.

    I also watch Office reruns all the time, and I agree, while I love the show (at least a good deal of it), I don't think it'd make a great pinball theme. Of course, if a Bill Paxton machine can be done, I suppose anything is possible. Just leave off most of the references after Michael Scott left the show. My favorite episode is "Stress Relief"; I can't help but laugh off on the part of that show when they are training on the ResusciAnnie.

    Can't you just imagine Gob's suit mode? Incrementing callouts for each successive shot.

    Obviously the wizard mode would be The Final Countdown.

    Hilarious. My wife and I used to watch the DVDs before Netflix had the office. We used to fall asleep and would wake to the opening menus. If you are familiar with the opening menus on the dvds you know some of them have a phone ringing over and over, or a bat flying around with dwight screaming "BAT! BAT!"...lol. Made for some funny late night wake up moments.

    I still wanna see a Muppets pin. That really seems like a no brainer in so many ways. Nice light-hearted theme, family friendly, could be potentially very funny.
