In episode 19 of season 7 of The Office (Garage Sale), Daryl, Andy, and Kevin find an old copy of a Dallas board game and proceed to play it. Unfortunately, they don’t have the rules, so the play is a chaotic and comedic farce of making up the rules as they play.
Too bad they didn’t hop over to BGG where they could download the rules (yes, it was a real game from 1980).
You can watch the episode online at Hulu (if you’re in the US).
I have found it to be the case that characters on TV shows have never heard of the internet. (with a few limited exceptions)
It’s odd, but nobody on CSI ever googled the strange man she was going to meet for drinks, and no sitcom dad worth his salt has ever looked up instructions on sanding a floor at ehow.com.
The Office talks about the Internet all the time–especially YouTube. Now using it to investigate board games . . . not so much.
