I have to say it’s a lot better than I thought it would be. When I heard they’d be doing an American version of ‘The Office’ I had visions of an…well… I can’t describe what I had visions of. But they were bad.
But this has everything it needs. It has a sense of realism (albeit exactly like the British version… I have to wonder if American offices are anything like that) It had the embarrasing boss. It has the gareth, the tim, the receptionist.
The problem is… if you’ve seen all of the british version watching the American version will be like watching repeats. The scripts are identical.
