      Agree – when the Office went off NBC Primetime a couple of years ago, I just assumed Jenna would be back on TV shortly – but it seems like quite a while now. Glad to see her coming back now in a big way w/NBC – Laura, and the upcoming Apocalypse.

      Welcome Back Jenna!

    Yuck! Jenna Fischer can barely act her way out of a paper bag. Now, we’re supposed to believe that she’s a sexy and savvy attorney that can turn Jake’s head. It’s hard enough to suspend reality where her plain Jane looks are concerned, but casting her as an intelligent litigator when she acts like a bimbo in every single role, is a huge stretch. I sincerely hope the writers have set-up an extremely short romance and that she will soon be moving on. Considering her first and last ‘big’ role was on The Office and it ended 3 years ago, I don’t see her adding anything to ratings.
