The Office breaks new creative ground this week with Thursday's episodes that are — wait for it — "newpeats." What's a newpeat, Grasshopper? I'm glad you asked. It's basically a rerun that's re-edited to include deleted scenes and/or previously unaired material.

In many ways, NBC's "newpeats" are the TV version of what other industries have already been doing. The music business in recent years has been putting out greatest hits CDs with one or two new songs on them. The popularization of DVDs, too, has made splicing together old material acceptable: A new DVD of "Don't Look Back," a 1967 documentary about Bob Dylan, includes a whole new documentary culled from unused footage of the original.

Think up bumper stickers for the Cowboys' '95 drive - maybe drive is a bad word to use with this team. Call it the Cowboys' pursuit of a berth in Super Bowl XXX:

"BARRYBALL BACKER ON BOARD!" "Go Dallas CowBarrys!" "DRIVE CAREFULLY - Cowboy Crossing." "COWBOYS '95 - THIS TIME WE'RE SERIOUS!" Or, maybe the simple yet elegant expression: "NEWPEAT!"
—Larry Powell, "Those sick of Cowboyless football have other things to kick off," The Dallas Morning News, January 27, 1995
