I am a late arrival at the good time that is The Office, North American version. My daughter got the DVDs for Christmas, and we spent many a fun hour watching the shows, including commentary. And I have come to a conclusion:
John Krasinski, who plays Jim, is one cute, clever guy. I mean, he's the very definition of "cute guy" to me, including the smarts.
So I said to my daughter, "There must be a gazillion fan sites for him."
"Uh, no," says she. (Clearly, she had checked. )
What? There are only a couple of sites dedicated to John/Jim, who happens to be a very good actor (and reactor) and whose character is in one of the most fascinating, exciting TV romances EVER?
I was shocked.
So I asked my daughter why she thought he was flying under the radar. "Teenagers don't watch The Office," was her reply.
I've never been so tempted to start a fan site myself. If I didn't have a book to write, I'd be even more tempted.
In the meantime, I will watch and enjoy.
