Having a crush on the married women (engaged in the show), etc...

It's the only show besides Scrubs, I'll watch.

I think it's funny, but I find it can be rather dull and pretentious sometimes. The characters are great, and I think it's hilarious at times.

"Hey, did you get your tickets to the show?"
"What show?" "The gun show"

How about the one where that guy was in charge of health insurance and made people say what they would need it for in the meetings.

That had to be one of the funniest things ever... "no dental, no vision, $1200 in deductables... this sucks"

He deserves his own show though... after Bruce Almighty and Anchor Man... he was so funny...

Can't match the original, but it ranks highly when being compared to its American counterparts.

Gare--err, Dwight busting his way out of the box as the warehouse worker looked on may have been my favorite moment.

Not surprisingly, it's gotten bad ratings and may not get renewed, because America is ****ing retarded.

I saw a coupla eps of the GB version awhile back, and I'd say this is a good USA equiv. Steven Carrell is very funny, and makes the show for me. I also liked the boss in the GB version. I think the British version has a slightly funnier cast, and has a better fake doc quality to it. The "you're actually not getting fired for stealing from the company, it's a joke" bit was great in the British version.

I like the comedy of the show.. and sometimes hits too close to home!

but i'm not sure if I like the "documentary" style that its filmed in..

Maybe they should just call it 'Law and Order: Whore Watch' or CSI: Katmandu. We need more of those shows... :rolleyes:

I saw the pilot and liked it, other than the boss being just a little too unrealistic and irritating. I haven't seen it since, though. I'll have to check it out.

Just did a search on tivo.com. Found it on BBC America, set up a season pass. What channel is the American version supposed to be on?

Ultra Peanut
04-28-2005, 12:57 PM
It's been airing on NBC, but its initial "trial run" of six episodes (which were, by the way, written by Ricky Gervais -- David Brent) has concluded, and I dunno if they'll be airing it again any time soon.

People who hate the American one because they love the British one are arrogant morons. They can't get over themselves because they think they're special. "Oh, it can't possibly match the original! Fa fa fa!" Come on. I've seen the original, too, and it's a classic. But the US version is great as well in its own way.

So there.

American, British one, doesn't really make a difference if they don't renew it... I think the British one is slightly better too, but I love the American one too, the bosses are the key. The American boss has his own style, which I think is hilarious... All in all, if this show is not renewed, then I don't know why, other than scrubs (which I know a lot of you like too), it's probably the funniest show on TV.

What the hell is funny on TV these days???

So there.Pretty much. It can't -- and doesn't -- match the original, but it's pretty damn good in its own right.

Arrested Development, Adult Swim (Family Guy, Venture Brothers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Robot Chicken in particular) Scrubs (don't watch it often, but when I do, it's good), and, uh.. that's pretty much all I can list.

I've been meaning the check out Arrested Development for a while, but never have. What channel is that on??? Adult swim's okay, love the family guy, haven't seen the other ones you listed...

I concur. I went into this version with trepidation, because the original was near perfect. But they managed to keep a lot of good stuff and add some quality 'Americanization.'

"To you want to keep the sports drink?"
"What flavor is it?"
"Blue."
"Blue isn't a color. . . Oh! Jet Blue. . . yeah, keep it."

Deadwood
Two and a Half Men
Scrubs
The Office
Gilmore Girls

Arrested Development [fingers crossed]

That's about it.

But I just saw that HBO picked up Gervais' new vehicle 'Extras' where he follows Extras around on Hollywood sets. Supposed to be good as well.

It's funny in this weird painful way. It's like I'm watching, and I know what's going to happen, but I still think to myself "no way, he's not going to say/do that" and then he does. I can't remember a show that made me laugh and cringe at the same time so much, not even South Park.

I thought they turned that running joke around deftly last night.

"You ought to go for it, Dwight."
"What'll she see in me."
"Dude! You're Assisant Regional Manager."
[glumly] "Assistant to the Regional Manager."

If that's what you like best about it, not watching the original is UNACCEPTABLE.

Both seasons and the finale X-mas special are all available on DVD. Stick 'em in the ol'd Netflix que.

Out-f*cking-standing. I just wanted to remember the exact words to this exchange.

Al: (Leans forward) Our moment permits interest in one question only: will we, of Deadwood, be more than targets for ass-****ing? To not grab ankle is to declare yourself interested. What’s your posture, Bullock?

Seth: (He doesn’t move) As you see.

Al: (Smiles) Huzzah then.

I hate to admit that I rewind my DVR at least twice an episode so I can be sure I heard Al right. ROFL

Al: Summon from Farnum that c^nt with the long kraut moniker.
Johnny: E.B. ain’t been over for coffee.
Al: Should I ask if Farnum’s come for coffee before I get you to summon that c^nt? (Johnny goes, Al looks down at “the box” sitting next to him.) Dead and without a body, you still outstrip him for intelligence.

And I love to death the fear in Dority's eyes as he tries desperately to keep up with Al's musings. He downed 4 straight shots as Al explained why they didn't need to go to Cheyenne last week.
Then he responds to Al's prodding as to what happens next, and he nervously answers

"F*cks himself up the ass—Tolliver?"

Hoping to God he'd followed along enough to keep Al keeping faith in him.

Great stuff.
