When I heard that there was going to be a U.S. version of The Office I was very skeptical. 'Oh great. Take a brilliant show and completely wreck it." But it works. Very well (as you can see from my going on and on about it here).
The U.S. version of The Office provides me with at least explosive laugh per show. Plus a lot of regular laughs in between. The British version is also very funny but in a different way. It's more uncomfortably funny. In the following, David Brent (Ricky Gervais), the hopelessly clueless boss, once again sucks all the attention.
