Poll Results: Favorite Character From The Office (U.S.)

No doubt about this one:

Michael Scott

– Michael: 16 votes
– Dwight: 8 votes
– Jim: 4 votes
– Creed: 3 votes
– Pam: 2 votes
– Kevin: 1 vote
– Ryan: 1 vote
– Stanley: 1 vote

No surprises here. Michael Scott was one of the biggest reasons the show was such a success, and his departure coincided with a huge drop in quality. It’s nice to see Dwight finish second — fitting, considering he had perhaps the best sendoff in the show’s finale.

This Week’s Poll: In honor of Memorial Day, I wanted to ask a military-themed question. Rather than go too broad and ask about war films in general, let’s discuss those that focus on the Vietnam War. I’m sure we all have friends and/or family who have been affected by this war, and there have been many excellent films based on it. My question for you this week is, what is the best film based on the Vietnam War? It seems a given that this will come down to Apocalypse Now and Platoon, but what about other excellent films like The Deer Hunter or Full Metal Jacket? How about seemingly underrated titles such as Hamburger Hill or Tigerland? Let’s hear your thoughts!

    Michael Scott! I so wish the finale had been about everyone going to Michael Scott and Holly’s wedding. That would have been incredible.
    Not a favourite category of film for me, but I would have to say of the movies I have seen about or set during the Vietnam War, Full Metal Jacket.

    It’s a tough call for second place this week. Obviously Apocalypse has to be number one, but then it was a really tough choice between Deer Hunter, Full Metal and Platoon. I went Deer Hunter in the end, just cause….

    I voted for Full Metal Jacket, especially for many of the lines in the first half of the movie my friends and I have memorized.

    Yay, I LOVE Steve Carrell on this show!

    Hmmm, I don’t watch a lot of war movies so I can’t answer you. I did do a pictorial tribute for US soldiers in the movies though, and some people did mention Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now.

    Most of those listed Vietnam films I haven’t seen for 5 years. I’m going with Apocalypse Now & The Deer Hunter, which I’ve watched and loved multiple times.
    Rescue Dawn and Coming Home are underappreciated, nice they got a mention! I think I heard Tarantino praised Casualties of War.
