the office

Something unexpected happened this season; thanks to the misguided and often downright unfunny six-episode “Little Britain” arc, Arrested Development dipped down in quality while The Office shot way up. I just finished re-watching the Office Olympics episode and it really got to me; the confused-but-grateful expression on Steve Carell’s face when he’s accepting the “gold medal for condo-buying” is a genuinely well-acted moment. It’s nice to see an American version of something actually equal, and in many respects surpass, the British version.

    Well, I just had to commen on this. The Office in it´s original, Ricky Gerwais state is SOOO much better than the Steve Carell one. I am so disappointed after watching the american epiodes, but after a re-run of the original The Office I feel much better !

    Have a happy new year !

    I havent seen the British one, but I am too much of the American version fan to convert! Can’t wait for the next season.
