    I saw today that BBCAmerica is going to run the original BBC series The Office with Ricky Gervais. I've been waiting for this one.

    In CST, it is Fridays from 7 - 7:40.

    Hasn't it been running on BBCA for, like, ages? I know my TiVo has picked it up many times.

    I've been looking for it since I finally got BBCA when I got my
    Series 3 last December. When I've checked the BBCA website they always said, "No episodes scheduled."

    Without a time to start, there was no way to get a Season Pass. Guess I should have done a Wishlist. Is that what you did?

    It's also on local PBS stations too... and of course it's all on DVD.

    Thanks. I have the DVD and watch it on planes and in hotels.

    Both the BBC version and the American one are great shows IMHO.

    I have an SP for the NBC version and I have a three-thumbs-up for the UK version.

    The TiVo picks it up in the suggestions every once in awhile, but maybe I'm confusing the PBS airings with the BBCA airings. I know that lately it's been recorded from both PBS and BBCA, so maybe BBCA has just started running it again. But they have definitely run it before, b/c that's how I found it in the first place years ago.

    I love the British version but I'm pretty sure I've seen them all. Are there any NEW episodes or are they all re-runs?

    If you have seen all the episodes through the final Xmas special, then that's it. The show has been over for a few years and there are no "new" episodes.

    Thanks for the update on Office -- U K

    I have been looking for it for a while.

    Also, I messed up my Season Pass and we missed the opening episode of Office - USA and while setting up to get Office -- U K I saw that the first episode of Office -- USA is being rerun already on Saturday, October 6.

    Good all the way around
