My wife got me into watching The Office since the first season. One of my all time favorite episodes was 'The Dundies' from early season 2.

The only negative side effect from watching this show is the inability to resist saying "that's what she said" to anything remotely applicable. ;\)

No doubt it will. They're really just two different flavors. After being used to the British version, it feels like the American version is beating me over the head with the jokes, and the character development feels cheaper and not like the primary focus. On the other hand, if you're used to the American version, you might feel like the British version is too slow and boring.

I do love the cast of the US version, at least as far as Steve Carell, John Krasinski, and Jenna Fischer.

Oh, and PeterChenoweth, I can understand not getting into the British version after one episode. It took me a few to get into it, and by the end of the series it was cemented as one of my favorite shows of all-time.

I've watched a fair amount of the US version. I'm sure at some point I'll make a point of watching every episode.

I like when Oscar is talking about Ryan and he says something like "the biggest mistake? The beard." I lol'd so hard because all season I have been saying how terrible the beard is.
The above quote also reminds me of scrubs when "The Todd" has new boss that wants him to be more mature and he makes some sort of deal to be involved in some really great surgery. The new boss says to him "you can't do it that way you have to go in from behind" the camera then show "The Todd's" Eyes light up then it cuts to him outside of the OR taking his gloves off Saying "it was worth it".

We liked the new addition to their office, though we sort of guessed correctly from the first instant we saw her as to what role she would start to play.

Yeah, her character is a nice addition. I think that the creative team behind the show realized that part of the key to continued success of their show will be developing some new story lines/conflicts/tension. The new HR lady does that quite nicely.


I think it's mostly #2 as to your question, but he was probably a little out of it due to the revelation with #1.

That was a really good episode. They should've called it The Kitchen Sink - there was something good from nearly everyone.
