    the American Version Office

    well from what i have seen of the american version of the BBC's Office...i think the US one is pretty decent. the boss character is horribly funny and even make me feel awkward... anyone see the episode about diversity--the boss was doing a chris rock stand up routine...anyway, has anyone else seen the US version of 'The Office'? :grin:

    Re: the American Version Office

    just chalk up another thing the USA has taken from the BBC...

    a list:
    You want to be a Millionaire?
    The Office
    American Idol
    Survivor
    Couples
    Who's Line is it anyway?
    and the list goes on...

    The American version of The Office has me weak every time I watch it. Steve Carell is hilarious as the boss, and the one guy Dwight Schrute is so serious about his shitey job. The secretary is kinda hot IMO. Don't deny it.

    if it makes you cringe then it means that they've copied it perfectly !
    The original used to have me cringing and squirming all the time. I'll have to look out for the US version as I did read that it was going to be shown here

    also seen mention of another BBC series possibly moving stateside as well - Little Britain. With some of the characters in that I can see them transferring nicely to some of the US states

    I've never got into Little Britain, but from what I've seen they could quite easily re-title it "Little Wisconsin" :wink:
    My head is spinning round, I don t know what to do...

    Re: the American Version Office

    hehe, i love both little britain and the office, little britain would need a lot of adapting though, it's very english in parts and i think some bits they just wouldn't get.

    the office was fantastic as well, that cringing feeling you get aahhhh, i've never even worked in an office and i still recognise the way people behave in it from real life so much it hurts. i'd like to see the american version and see how they've done it
