The Office TV Series [US]

Who watches this? Best TV series ever?

I watched full Seasons 1,2,3 and 4. Starting to watch the 5th currently.

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

It's nothing compared to the UK version.

The US version is just like any other sitcom. Pretty mediocre.

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

I hate the UK version.

Nothing compared to Rainn Wilson doing as Dwight or Steve Carrell as Michael Scott.

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

How can you hate the UK version? It's close to perfection. I've never seen such a perfectly awkward atmosphere on any TV programme before.

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

The American one is just squeezing every bit of life out of it like most US sitcoms. The UK version left on a high, after 12 episodes and 2 Christmas specials.

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are the creators behind the US version as well. Legends.

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

I just can't watch shows that are too popular. I'll feel like I'm on a bandwagon.

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

As usual, the US version takles out all the edge. The humour in this programme was about cringing in embarrassment. Gervais got it perfect. I only wish he would be given the host spot at the Oscars, with no control on what he says.
The skinny bad guy on the UK version was also perfect, way out in front of his US counterpart.

Was there really only one season in the UK?

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

BGT, here its very unknown, so I aint got the bandwagon problem. ( I only know one guy who watches it, who was the one recommending it to me)

It's mediocre. I think Micheal goes overboard with his antics too often

Re: The Office TV Series [US]

Last week, I actually had a dream telling people I hate The Office and Steve Carell was sitting right next to me.
