just saw the office... didn't laugh once. It's the poor man's arrested development.
Which one? NBC's or the original British?

I forgot NBC's was on tuesday and caught the last 10 minutes or so. I smiled at parts. I thought it was better than the first episode. But still waiting for more original stuff from NBC's series.

I thought tonights episode of the Office was the best of the three so far. I actually laughed a couple of times.

They pretty much borrowed from the storyline with Gareth who was conducting his own investigations, but NBC's version had enough of thier own original stuff to make it different. At least I thought so.

I thought I wasnt going to like the Dwight (Gareth's American version) character at all, but I seem to be laughing at Dwights mischievousness. It was scenes about him that made me laugh this episode.

*SPOILERS*
I also like the end there where the boss couldn't come up with a big surprise. And everyone slowly walked out of the building.

Episode 4 (NBC) was a hit and miss for me. It had some good moments, but then had some moments where it felt too much like a sitcom and not enought like a documentary. Mostly the scene with Dwight hiding in the box is what felt like a sitcom.

But overall I thought it was pretty funny.

Hmmmm...maybe it was shown in the US for the first time this past year? Just guessing. Otherwise I'm not sure why it isn't nominated 2 years later.

I hope they win too. It's one of the funniest TV series I've ever seen.

Is the Comeback in documentary style as well? That's the one with Lisa Kudrow is it not? Or maybe I'm thinking of something else.

Too bad I don't get HBO in my area. Or maybe the whole of Canada doesn't get HBO. I thought I heard somewhere that HBO doesn't exist in Canada. I could be wrong.

One of our stations will get the Comeback eventually.

Yeah it's a mockumentary, and yes Lisa Kudrow. It's really cute, I hope you get to see it.
