"The Office" : Please Send us the British Version

Posted by Fara Kearnes on March 28, 2005 10:24 PM |

If you watched the premiere of the Yankee version of "The Office" last week, you're painfully aware that, although the show wasn't bad, it didn't stand up to the Brit version with the original funny guy, Ricky Gervais.

David and Gareth from The Office

It lacks the oozing squirm factor of the brilliant Gervais: the quick glances at the camera, the nervous ticks, the desperate seeking of approval. The BBC "Office" was painful to watch, yes, because of Gervais who gave the smarmy self-important boss, David, such a train-wreck quality.

With quotes like: "There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is Neil will be taking over both branches and some of you will lose your jobs… On a more positive note the good news is I’ve been promoted - so… every cloud… yeah, yeah... you’re still thinking about the bad news aren’t you?" , Now if you saw the British version, you probably enjoyed cringing through the politically incorrect racial remarks and stupid office pranks, but you may yet like the American version that shows beaten office workers struggling to get through another day. If you can relate to it from your own work place experience -- then, good, it's SUPPOSE to make your skin crawl.

"The Office" is not for everyone, but if you like dry, sarcastic humor, and you can appreciate the mortifying aspects of working in a psychologically injurious white-color job environment, with cubicles or (gads!) open desks pushed up against each other! -- give the American show a try. Phft, I've actually rubbed elbows at the copy machine with such creepy co-workers . . . I'm sure you have too.
