    I just started watching this show. It's pretty funny. Office Olympics was my first episode. I just have a question. Why do they talk into the camera? Is it supposed to be that the viewer is in the room or something?

    It's shot documentary style - the interviews and stuff solidify that. They look at the camera because it's a documentary camera crew there.

    And I think you mean the UK version, but I might be wrong:confused:

    I like that this seasons they are making Michael Scott a bit more sympathetic, as opposed to just an outright ******* who thinks everyone likes him (first season). It is much more like his British counterpart.

    I figured they would. It's a necessary step, to continue otherwise would just make Michael one dimensional.

    I actually never even noticed that in the British version (except after he got fired), but I guess youre right. When I coaxed masteryoda into buying the DVDs, he got season 2 first, and said he didnt understand why i called David Brent such a prick, until he saw the first season.


    But Michael Scott is still a prick to me, much like David Brent.:)

    I don't think Michael Scott is trying to be a prick though. I think he is in general a decent guy, atleast he tries to be. Granted, his sense of humor may be a little off...and he takes things too far, but I think he really does care about his employees. I read in the TV guide preview for this season, that Michael is going to have to fire someone and it is going to upset him quite a bit.

    I just saw an episode of the british version and it was the same premise of this show.

    It had the boss make a racial comment and they had to talk about it.

    There was a fire drill and the Dwight character was acting like he ran the place, like tonights episode.

    There's a reason for that, the British version is the original. The first episode of the US version was pretty much the same as the 1st episode of the original british version. It started branching out after that, but still pulled elements from the british one here and there.

    The episode you saw was the first of the second season.

    It's a good thing they didn't copy the exact same script like the US version of Coupling.

    Last night's was great... Steve Carell is possibly the funniest actor working right now.

    Anyone watch tonight? The Dwight/Michael fight was hillarious. I also like that it's not above pointing out it's own absurdity...

    Jim: The Albany office is working through lunch to avoid being downsized. Michael extended lunch by an hour so we could all go to the dojo.
