THE OFFICE

The greatest TV in history is being made right now. The worst TV in history is being made right now.

I am just about caught up on The US version of The Office. My initial thoughts are as follows:

1) Nowhere near as funny as the UK version. I very rarely find myself laughing outloud.

2) Steve Carrell is annoying and not in a funny way. He is brutal and consistently brings down the show. He has had his moments, but the bad far outweighs the good.

3) I absolutely need to watch to see what happens with Jim and Pam. It is infectious. Best part of the show by far. It actually pains me how much I care about these two.

Bottom line...I will continue to watch the show not because I find it funny (I really don't) but because the Jim/Pam storyline is fabulous. Well acted and well written. They need to play down Steve Carrell and limit him to the minor character he should be.

I thought the UK version had some better gags, but I like the characters on the US version better. And while I go hot and cold with Steve Carrell's character, everyone else on the show is near priceless to watch.

Steve Carrell is easily the weakest part of the show. Which is a shame because I'm a big fan of his from TDS. :?


I much prefer Tim, Dawn and Gareth to Jim, Pam and Dwight, but the supporting cast of the U.S version is nothing short of exemplary.

^^^^ Um having not seen the American Office, I can't really say much about it (it's a bit too American, though, don't you think? :wink: ) , but I just thought I'd chime-in to say, "see his pug-nosed face...pug pug, pug pug." Best Bowie song since Ashes to Ashes IMO.

I like the new office girl from the Stanford branch. She's much hotter than Pam and come on.... she plays video games!!! TOO HOT!!! Hopefully Pam's 2 seasons of flirting with poor Jim will finally come back to CRUSH HER!!!!
The betrayal episode is still my favorite of this season.

Fievel, may I just say, that the formatting of your post, although possibly diminished by subsequent wrote-boxing, was a thing to behold?

Although I reserve judgement on the very last sentence there.
By that I mean the pooping one.
Mmm.

:o

Ahem, to keep with that partially oh so on topically taste, the thing that kind of broke the spell for me with the A-Office, even over some of the stronge supporting cast, was actually the formatting.

Funnily enough.

The documentary feel seemed to really lapse away, as if it wasn't an intrinsic part of teh story-telling, making things feel a little more sitcom like, and the gratitious zooming in and over-reactions of characters to each other along with this, or because of it, just made it awkward for me to watch. At least not quite in the way that they intended, I think.

That's what SHE said!!!! :oops: Ahhh crap.... another innapropriate use of a timeless classic.

But thanks! It was/is aesthetically pleasing if I don't say so myself.

I agree though... the documentary feel is losing itself, and thus a touch of the charm.

Another solid episode. The comedy has been kicked up a notch. The first two seasons were a little light on the comedy.

Just like to point out that the extra-long XMas episode a few weeks back was on par with the U.K XMas specials in terms of quality, I thought. It was that frackin good, I thought.

Also like to add: I hate the arrogant little twerp-face that is Mr. Oh-so-hip, Joss Whedon. His shows suck, and his dialogue couldn't be any more try-hard if he, er, tried. One of the most over-rated writer hacks I've ever come across . Stay the hell away from my Office, bitch!

Anyone watch last night's ep? I thought it was pretty good. Dwight's exit was very dramatic. I think if he just pulled Michael behind a closed door and told him the truth in private he could have avoided this mess. But then, Michael does have a big mouth so maybe that wasn't much of an option.

my favourite part was the bit at the very end, when they're interviewing Andy about getting Dwight to leave, and in the background is Angela, looking at him with a dirty look. can't wait to see her get her revenge.

I just really like Karen as a character. If there was anyone sweeter and more perfect then Pam, she would be it. Also....no Creed. Best moment was when Stanley kept laughing at Ryan for trying to do the salespitch to the black dudes. So freaking funny. "Im going to do my crossword puzzle."

I thought the show had been slacking a bit lately but this week's episode really hit it out of the park. Rainn Wilson's performance as Dwight continues to get better and better. In the beginning I thought it was a little broad and one of the weaker points of the series, but now it's one of it's strongest elements. The part the other week where he was trying to console Pam was hillarious.

I can't believe no one commented on Oscar's brief cameo on the Christmas episode! But then he saw Angela singing a Christmas carol and got his ass out of there.

Dwight's exit and Andy's schemes were great. But like said above, Stanley was on fire this past episode. Hi-LARRY-us.

Dwight and Jim working together was awesome.

I noticed that too. "Too soon," he says. Brilliance!


And Ed Helms is just so despicable on that show. I mean that in a good way.

I was never all that fond of him on "The Daily Show," but his smug demeanor makes for a great Andy.

A Karen, Angela or Pam Poll? Hell throw Jan Levinson and Kelly Kapoor in there as well (Mindy Kaling, who plays Kelly, has actually written 5 or 6 eps of the show.) Karen and Pam as best buddies setting up the Christmas party was a little exciting to me, for so many reasons.

when andy suddenly turned around and punched a hole in the wall... that was classic. everyone standing around with their mouths gaping open, jim gingerly hanging up the phone.

Tonight's episode was really funny. Ben Franklin was great. I loved Pam's "Yeah . . . Hmm? I meant 'no'!" when asked if she still had feelings for Jim. Gosh, it's so soap opery but I can't help myself. I eat it up! Just like I eat Michael Scott's man meat, baby!

I never really got into this show as it was always on the same time as something else I was watching...

But I recently got season 1 on dvd & I am just loving it....

Steve Carrell is brilliant...
So much so that I gave him a golden zod nom for his performance in the series...

The rest of the cast & characters are fantastic too...
I'm really enjoying this & cant wait for season 2... Its in my blockbuster online rental que...

I dont know if any of you saw last night's episode but it was pretty crazy. The show is so subtle that when something emotional and angry happens its shocking. Pam told Roy about the kiss Jim gave her, and he just started yelling and lobbing bottles everywhere. He really flipped out. I wasn't expecting that.

I mostly liked last nights episode but I have to be honest and say that the way Carrell and the writers are portraying Michael is starting to get on my nerves, he's been doing some extremely ridiculous things lately and it totally stops it from being believable where as he didn't use to be like that. I prefer watching the rest of the characters play off of each other now.

i agree, same with dwight. but i think that's the big difference between the US and UK versions. on the UK show even though brent and gareth were sorta outlandish they were always believable as real people. i can't imagine real people who would act like michael and dwight though. i mean, a guy sneaking into room of the party hosts' kid, and climbing on their roof to look at the chimney, would be arrested in no time in real life. but they decided to go more over-the-top and silly with those characters, and i think it's been that way for a while now, so i've accepted it. and once you accept that it's not supposed to be realistic, you can enjoy it a bit more.

i agree about Michael and Dwight being written as really over-the-top recently. Especially the Phyllis's Wedding episode where Michael kept trying to make speeches and interrupt the ceremony to get attention. The episode had its moments but overall that outlandish behavior really detracted from my enjoyment of it. As long as they don't let him get TOO outrageous, I think the show will be okay.

From season 1 I've accepted the fact that the American version is a little broader than the original. I don't think you can take the American version as literally as the original. If I did, I would expect that the series will end with half of the members of the office in some form of therapy. Michael's over over the top behavior would be fine if it was actually funny. I don't really care how weird Dwight acts because it's usually funny. Lately I've found myself just muting it halfway into whatever scene Michael is completly embarrasing himself.

I could not agree more. I really like Carrell and the show, but lately I've found myself just hoping they'll hurry past the Michael subplots and get back to the rest of the Office Staff. Dwight I don't mind being a whack job, but his stuff at the house in the last episode was pretty far out of left field even for him, especially the thing on the roof. The Jim/Pam vs. Dwight moments in the show are still some of my favorite comedic moments in television right now, though. It just never gets old for me.

My favorite Michael moments right now are those few moments when he's actually thoughtful or insightful...like he was with Jim on the Office cruise a while back and how he was with Pam at the art show. I'm glad they are giving his character at least a couple of uncringeworthy moments in the show. The rest of the stuff with him has been a little too over the top for my tastes lately.

I prefer watching the rest of the characters play off of each other now.


Sadly I know a guy like him. And I think Carrell knows him too...
