    It lasted like 5 pages before falling off the forums.

    I like FotC but I don't think you'll find much interest round these parts.

    I only saw the pilot, and I liked it.

    But the office is just seems more well rounded.

    The 'I think I figured out why she left, she was freaked out when you turned on the lights' bit had my laughing really hard though.

    I hated Drew Carey. Absolutely loathed it.

    Couldn't even tell you why. It just bothered me on some deep level.

    was it the logical inconsistency of Drew Carey actually having friends?
    I also preferred drew carey when he was the kid from Christmas story.

    I thought it was.

    But it wasn't, you've been deceived.

    The guy who was the kid ended up.. doing a whole lot of nothing. Perennial guest star.

    But another of the actors (Zack Ward) ended up in Transformers and BLOODRAYNE THE SEQUEL.

    The gods waited long to deliver vengeance upon him, but it has come. Uwe Boll will spell his doom.

    News Radio? Are you fucking serious comparing that to The Office? Maybe News Radio is more like Spin City or something like that, but The Office is just a whole different level.

    edited July 2007
    I liked the English version of the office more, probably because it was the first one, written by the guy responsible for the idea... The humor was more subtle, a bit more cringe worthy too.

    I also liked the fact that it had a definate story line with all the trimmings... a begining and an end. Enough of this bullshit where you just produce episode after episode untill it isn't as popular anymore.

    English version pales in comparison to the american version. Hell the creator even admits that.

    Why can't you people?

    Not at all, you cant understand them through their thick accents half the time.

    Watch dwight and try and argue he's not the best character to grace the office in any country ever. You can't, can you?

    Umm... I hardly count your inability to understand an english accent as reason why one would be better than the other... It adds to the subtlety. And Gervais is just awesome, Carol is a hack... ok, not really, but I just love Gervais style... it's so, hard to watch... which in the case of the Office, is just perfect.

    I love monty python too, and I generally use close captioning while viewing.

    The UK and US versions are completely different. The UK version I sat through and watched and loved every moment of, and the ending was fantastic, but I can't just go back and watch it whenever, it was just so much more of a mini-series rather than a show.

    The US version still has an underlying storyline, but that's not the focus. The focus is on each and every episode being an absolute riot.

    It's that simple.

    Edit: But Monty Python sucks. Not because of the accents, it's just not funny unless you force yourself to laugh.

    Its carrel. Carol is a girls name.

    And steve carrel is the farthest thing from a hack.

    I think he really brought some humanity to michael scott, and made him beleivable and unbelievable at the same time.

    Agreed.

    With only so much time, and it is close to zero, that I dedicate to watching TV, I try to avoid anything that is simple situational based comedy at this point... Not because it isn't funny, but because I have already watched so much of it, that it is hard to justify any more time spent on a genre of "look what happens when this crazy character gets involved in this whacky situation!" ... I like when there is a begining and an end, not just a joke machine a la family guy style. Of course, that doesn't mean that when I do see an episode I don't laugh my ass off.

    I always tried to figure out the difference between Ricky Gervais and Steve Carrell's characters. I think Ricky Gervais is broken on the outside but normal on the inside, while Steve Carrell is just broken.

    waitwaitwait

    Let's be clear.


    Monty Python as in The Flying Circus, or as in the three(Four? I forget.) movies?

    Because, yes Flying Circus was only kinda funny outside of a few brilliant sketches, but Holy Grail and the Meaning of Life are fucking beautiful.

    I get the humor of the Office and everything - it's just boring sometimes.

    This show is funny though.
