It's hard to believe there's anybody that's not seen or at least heard of The Office, stcool. I agree. It's an outstanding show. It's based on a British series which also very funny but with the 'British humor', not to everyone's US taste.

The 'Randy' Steward ep Extras was hilarious, Odradek.

I like Dwight too. But Creed is my fav. He's the most subversive.

it amazes me this Bitish and American sense of humour. they are very different dont you think? ive seen both the USA and UK version and although im probably biased i have to say the British version is just awesome. one of the best comedies to come out of Great Britain in many a year i recon. 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!!
