The Office - american stylee

Did anyone see this on BBC 3 last night? Didn't work for me. No one can match up to Gervais for cringewothiness.

The Office - american stylee
Another one I've missed that I wanted to watch.

I was reading an article about this series yesterday.
It was saying how after watching the original, it would never come up to scratch. But it also said that even though they have changed the script, there is still some of the cringeworthiness in there.
Apparently it has been commisioned for a second series over there, but the viewing figures weren't brilliant.

I can save every Office fan a few hours here as I saw the first episode....don't bother to watch.


I really cannot see the point of this diluted remake. The cultural refrences were so minute that one wonders what any Yank would have missed by watching the original. The script is closely followed, but in every character, scene, even setting it is 50 % of the original. There is absolutely no point to the whole affair.

steer clear

What others think and say about you is none of your business. :ohmy:
