WTF!?!?!?! The American version of the office has got to be one of the most boring things I have ever seen, long live the British one.

PS. stop copying all our fucking tv shows... and films.

What films have the Yanks copied off Brits? The only one that springs to mind is the re-make of Italian Job.

I dont know about movies...but alot of those reality type shows are definently stolen from the British. The ones in Britain are 10x better....IMO.

True, I don't know why they bother making remakes, but I guess humans will run out of original ideas one day.

i think we stole three's company from you too.

anyway, yeah, the american version is one of the most painfully unfunny things i've ever seen (ten minutes of the first episode), whereas the original is pure class. that's not to say anything about the quality of british television, a lot of your stuff is complete shit too.

Both versions of 'The office' are bullshit. Boring. Uninteresting. Unfunny. Unwitty. All-round crudness. In my opinion, it doesn't matter really where it came from first, it should be banned from TV screens.

I just discovered Beavis and Butthead. I've only been watching it for afew months now. Maybe I'll grow out of it or maybe I won't. My grandpa is 78 and we still watch it together. He's been watching it since the show came out and still hasn't gotten tired of it.
