    I love it when Michael locks himself in his office and keeps replaying the same 30 second sample of a depressing song he found on itunes. He's too cheap to buy it, so he just keeps replaying it.

    Gareth: Alright, it's Christmas dinner. Royal family... having a Christmas dinner. Camilla Parker-Bowles says, "Okay, we'll play 20 Questions. I'll think of something and you have to ask me questions and guess what it is." And what she's thinking of is a black man's cock.

    David: Ha! Trust Camilla! -- It's not racist, is it?

    Gareth: No, no. Um...

    So, Prince Philip goes, "Is it bigger than the bread bin?" and she goes, "Yeah."

    Charles goes, "Is it something I can put in my mouth?", she goes, "Yeah."

    The Queen goes, "Is it a black man's cock?"

    Todd Packer: "What has two thumbs and likes to bone your mom?" "This guy."

    Michael: "Todd Packer and I are total BFFs, Best Friends Forever. We came up together in sales. One time we went to a bar and met this set of twins. And Packer said that we were brothers. One thing lead to another, and we took them to our hotel room... And Packer did BOTH of them! It was awesome!"

    Some quick background... Gareth is the character Dwight is based on, and he's always talking about his time in the army. Tim is who Jim is based on, and Dawn is the original version of Pam

    Tim: I was wondering if a military man like you, um - a soldier - could-could you give a man a lethal blow?

    Gareth: If I was forced to. I could. If it was absolutely necessary. If he was attacking me.

    Tim: If he was coming really hard?

    Gareth: Yeah, if my life was in danger, yeah.

    Dawn: And do you always imagine doing it face to face with a bloke or could you take a man from behind?

    Gareth: Either way is easy.

    Dawn: Either way. And so you could do a man from behind?

    Gareth: Yeah...

    I believe it. I haven't seen either though.

    I've been into british humor ever since the 70s back when I watched Monty Python's Flying Circus. Then I got into Benny Hill after that, then Fawlty Towers, Mr Bean and some others.

    The Beatles are like the British version of The Office. Fantastic, but they pale in comparison to what they inspired.

    let's all be honest here for a second, the British Version is not as good as the US version. Everytime people argue it they always come off as those people who just argue it to be different as somehow having that opinion makes them more artistic. It's like whenever people see a movie, they always say the book was better. I know people who say the book was better even when they didn't read it, they just say that. I'm willing to bet that is the case for most of the "UK version is so much better" people

    I like Ricky Gervais, and think Carrell is pretty annoying in general. I think Gareth is a better character. I tried watching the US one for a bit, but it was just kinda boring. Also, the book is better 90% of the time, provided you can read.

    the book is better because it came out first, same thing with The UK Office. This phenomenon is always true with intellectual creations, the reverse is the case for most tangible items like electronics. But people will always say the music of the 60's was better than the 70's which was better that the 80's and 90's. People will say the movies of the 70's were better than those of today. Whatever came first is better in most peoples' eyes.

    I love both the UK and US version, but the UK version is definitely better.

    The US version sometimes gets Michael & Dwight's characters to do things so ridiculous that it reduces them to cartoon characters, and it makes it tougher to take them seriously as real people. The UK version never crossed that border where the comedy got cartoonish. You always believed in the characters, which made the ending work even better.

    Also, Jim & Pam are annoying as hell, their relationship has been sappy and contrived from the start. That part of the US Office has always been a weak point. The Tim/Dawn relationship in the UK Office was done about a million times better.

    perfect example of my theory is people standing in line for that piece of shit Mona Lisa. Why do people act like that is the greatest painting ever? Go to the louvre and it's like the least substantial painting there. It is small, and it's boring. You can go to any modern art museum and see hundreds of paintings better than that piece of shit, but that is revered around the world.

    Same thing with the Beatles. The Beatles are alright, but they are blown out of proportion to the point where no band ever will be on their level. People put the Beatles on this pedestal where nobody can even be mentioned with them. People always ask "Why does the music of today suck>?" the reason is because they make the music of yesterday is blown way out of proportion. Radiohead is the best band of our generation (that's a fact) yet, they will never be able to be mentioned with the Beatles because people have spent nearly 40 years making the Beatles into more than they are.

    Same thing with people and books. Sometimes the movie is better, but people will never admit it.

    The British version is funnier because:

    1) They can make sex jokes that would never fly on the censored American airwaves. In the American version you'd never see pranks like Tim sneaking a dildo in David's office to embarrass him in an important meeting or David wanting to fire someone when he finds out a photoshopped picture of him getting jizzed on by two guys is circulating around the office. Or Gareth telling the woman hitting on Tim that she'd better make Tim wear a condom if she ever wants Gareth to go up in there (while pointing down at her pussy).

    No way you hear the "black man's cock joke" or you see the gag birthday gifts people get like dildos, inflatable dicks, etc. And you certainly don't see David's best friend, Chris Finch, taking the birthday girl doggystyle in the alley. Or when Tim and Dawn always try to get Gareth to say gay things like he'd take a man from behind (he thinks he's talking about killing an enemy soldier) or use his hole as bait (his foxhole).

    2) David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is a much funnier boss than Michael Scott. Micheal is an egotistical moron. David is just a guy always seeking approval from his inferiors, and the awkward silences every time he tells a funny joke to them are hilarious. The way David constantly tells his employees they're working for the greatest boss ever is hilarious. So is the way he keeps kissing up to the one black guy after getting in trouble for telling the black man's cock joke.

    3) There are no real assholes on the original office, whereas everyone on the US office aside from Pam is a huge prick. The British character, Gareth, that inspired Dwight is hilarious because he just blurts out what's on his mind, as opposed to Dwight who is a complete douchebag. Keith is probably the best supporting character with his apathy and laziness, and the US Office split him into two less funny characters (you can see his apathy in Stanley and the laziness and incompetence in Kevin).

    4) The British Office is funny because it's more like a real office than its American counterpart. The US Office relies too much on anger between everyone, and just always comes off as a dysfunctional mess.

    it's just more enjoyable, I don't have to sit there and wonder what the fuck the guys is trying to say. I don't have to try and understand British humor (or humour if I'm talking like a Brit). I've watched it, I have the DVDs, it's just not as enjoyable. I don't understand how Americans could like it better than the US version (not saying they shouldn't like it at all). But I should preface that I'm not someone who goes to foreign films and reads the dialog.

    I mean it's a good show, but to say the US version sucks, and that one is great is crazy.

    see this is where we must disagree because I think Michael Scott is the funniest person on the show and I think his character is great. I watch it for Michael Scott. I like that difference, and you dislike it, so there is a major difference

    The US version is funny, but there's nothing genuine about it. They could turn it into an animated series and wouldn't have to change a thing in the way that they write the show. That might make it better, because then Michael could bash Dwight over the head with a giant wooden mallet.

    I wouldn't recommend watching the BBC Life on Mars then, you'd probably need subtitles for the Manchester accents. Too bad, because outside of the Wire I can't think of a TV series on its level.

    Are you seriously trying to compare The Beatles and their influence on music to The Office? That is a horrible analogy dude. The Beatles, while I agree they are overrated, started modern music. They were the forerunners of all the music we have today and have inspired countless brilliant musical minds to compose some of the greatest works in history. Comparing the influence a historical benchmark like The Beatles to today's music and trying to make the whole Office analogy doesn't work.

    A more appropriate analogy would be this: The original Office is like either a great song that is then in the future covered by another band, or a cover/tribute band. Whereas The Beatles inspired tons of different music, The Office spawned an American clone, with the exact same name and exact same premise virtually. It's like saying you think Fall Out Boy's version of Beat It is better than Michael Jackson's, it just isn't.

    Honestly, don't watch the show, and I'm not trying to flame you or anything bro, I'm just saying, the analogy is kinda off. Like I said though, I do agree that The Beatles aren't as good as some people think. However, they were revolutionary, and that's what makes them important.

    no I was saying that the work of the Beatles will never be matched by another band no matter how good they are. A band could come out and be better than the Beatles in every tangible category, but they will never be better than the Beatles. I was comparing it to how people always claim a book is better than a movie, or how the original is better than a spinoff or remake. I wasn't comparing the Office to the Beatles in the obvious sense. People have given the place of the "best band ever" to the Beatles, and the contest is closed. Nobody will ever top them, even though an argument like that should forever be open
