The Melancholic Pianist
As a music production apprentice I had to do all the jobs no one else wanted. ‘Valuable industry experience’ they called it. My manager, Antoine – a pretentious name for a middle-aged guy from Basildon, if you ask me – was a nice enough guy, but he made sure you knew he was the boss.
The Office: The Top 10 Episodes
Narrowing down 188 episodes across 9 seasons into a "Top 10" list is not an easy thing to do. There were a couple of episodes that immediately sprang to mind, because I already knew what those absolute favourites were, but there are so many classic moments across the entire run of The Office to make it a challenge. I almost felt bad for leaving certain things out, and I'm sure there won't be a single person who agrees with the list in its entirety. In fact, there will be days when even I don't agree with my own list; sometimes I like certain episodes more than others, and the list changes position.
Comfort viewing during a pandemic
I've seen the entirety of Seinfeld probably four times (I came to that one late); the complete Parks & Recreation half a dozen times and I've completely lost count of the amount of re-watches I've done of The Office: An American Workplace (well, I admittedly tend to skip the less-perfect first season of The Office for the majority of my watches).
