Like “The Office”? Like knowing the dates of random pop-culture happenings? Then you’ll love “The Office Time Machine.” Shanghai has some really weird restaurants that will make you long for the normalcy of Hot Dog on a Stick. The long-awaited J.R.R. Tolkien translation of “Beowulf” will finally be published. Can an overblown movie trilogy be far behind? And this freakish robot exotic dancer (don’t worry, it’s safe for work!) will haunt your dreams.
