It's my favorite show, too. I seem to have a thing for office-based comedies for some reason; I also enjoy News Radio and Dilbert, which is strange because I've never had an office job.

I should watch it, but I'm lazy like that

I used to never watch shows that had a running story line to keep track of either, but you can just rent DVDs of shows or use Hulu.com, like I do. I don't like having to sit in front of the TV at a specific time and day in order watch a show I like. I hardly ever use the TV anymore, just watch stuff on the internet. /infomercial (ugh)

And the office is great. It requires a huge suspension of disbelief (at how incredibly unrealistic the workplace is) to enjoy it, but it's worth it, I guess. I've only seen like the first two episodes of the British The Office, and it seemed allright.

I watch it regularly now. At first, Michael's character was too over the top, almost frustratingly so. Now that there have been some episodes showing him acting a little more human, I can enjoy him more.

Jim' pranks on Dwight is the absolute best. But don't underestimate Kevin. I loved it when Holly thought he was mentally slow.

The British version is best,

the first episode of the american version was a painful poor man's version, after that they appear to make it into something decent, but still not as good!
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I agree, the original was the best. It was a one-off and the American series is no more than a poor immitation.

That said, I don't think we Brits could emulate classic American comedies like Cheers, Roseanne or Frasier any better.
