More Second Life in Future for the Office

Category: RL Meets SL, TV, Virtual Worlds by Stone Culdesac

Fans of Second Life may soon become fans of the Office, if they aren’t already, as articles from Tech Blorge and Second Life Insider mention more upcoming episodes with Second Life in them. This would make perfect sense as the some of the last of the Local Ad episode featured Jim’s avatar that he created and Pam giving him a hard time about buffing it up and making sure it looked like him. This would be a perfect way to mess with Dwight, like he does on most episodes, and it’s hard to imagine what kind of stuff they will come up with in the future.

They also have a little more info about the Local Ad episode that was on last week.

The episode was written by 28-year-old B.J. Novak (who also plays the show’s recently-promoted intern Ryan.) He written a line about an unhappy Dwight loving Second Life so much, he’d “created his own world. It’s called Second Second Life.

“For those people who want to be removed even further from reality.”

But he also included at least one line that suggested a real affection for the game, showing at least one way that a virtual life could fascinate an eccentric like Dwight.

“Absolutely everything was the same.

“Except I could fly.” Source: More Second Life pranks coming to The Office?

I myself will be watching for it as I usually try to catch the Office anyway.
