    Well that does it for me....


    The show sucked reeeeeaaalllly bad.

    In fact it was the worst show that I've seen in awhile.
    I felt I wasted 30 minutes of my life on this piece-o-shit.

    It was like I was watching the movies Pootie Tang or Master Of Disguise.
    Utter crap!!!!

    I haven't seen the British version but it has to be 1000 times better.

    edit: This is cool. BBC has a marathon of The Office starting 12 noon to 4 pm.

    6 episodes. Second season marathon is on April 2 12-4 as well.

    I've Tivo'd them all.

    That's weird that 6 40 min episodes make a full season.

    Yeah lots of british comedy seasons are about 6-8 eps unlike the american 20 odd. And its actually only 6 x 30 mins as the show is made by the BBC so it doesn't have any ad breaks in Britain.

    I never liked the british one at first but the more you watch it the funnier it gets.

    It's even better if you've worked in that type of environment.

    Can't say I've seen the NBC version though.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I used to work in an office and wear a suit everyday so I thought I would like it. The movie Office Space was wayyyyyyyyyyyy better.

    That movie even got our rush hour traffic right.

    I wish they made THAT into a TV show.

    i dunno... so far, comic strips (not comics, comic STRIPS) - movies/tv shows haven't been successful to my knowledge offhand.

    A few I can think of are: garfield the movie SUCKED, i didn't really like the garfield tv show, the dilbert tv show never lasted. Basically, though office space the movie kicked ass i bet a tv version probaby wouldn't.

    I just finished watching the original Office and it was wayyyyyyy better.

    I put my finger on why the American version sucks in comparison.

    The lead character Ricky Gervais - very likable
    The lead of the American version - dry as fuck, boring as shit

    All the other characters in the original have way more life as well but main offense is our version piece-o-shit main character.

    Steve Carrell is the main guy, he was very funny in Anchorman and Bruce Almighty.
    Obviously nobody can replace Gervais.

    And Office Space rules!
