I just dont get the USA one - no disrespect - i just dont. must be a cultural thing. when i heard that America is doing its own 'Office' i thought to myself 'why dont they just watch ours'? perhaps some of our stuff just wouldnt translate or something.

I heard a saying once that Britain and America are two nations divided by a common language' LOL which is very good i think. I love America and have visited many times over the years its my favourite place of all but the humour does go by me sometimes!!

No disrespect taken here, Starbase. I'm lucky enough to've gotten into Peter Sellers' through the Pink Panther movies (on the telly) in the late 60's then Monty Python's Flying Circus in the 70's, brill! Then Fawlty Towers, and The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin and the Python films. Brit and US humor are different. It could almost be said we're two nations divided by an uncommon sense of humor! But don't give up on us. I'm biased as well- biased towards funny! I've found both are awesome and both can be appreciated.
