Or simply removed suit jackets, shoes, and pocket contents.
That was the first thing I thought of when they didn't drop any weight, and Stanley said he dropped 4 lbs.
Duh...with EvilMidniteBombr's transcript, I realize I heard it just fine, too. I must have been thinking of "Lost in Translation."
Pam's classmate looked a lot like Skippy from Family Ties or even a younger version of Richard Kind, maybe it's his son?
It's Rich Sommer - he also plays Harry on Mad Men.
Wow! I watch Mad Men...did not recognize him!
I need some help.
Everyone tells me I should watch The Office but I just can't get into it.
I LOVED the original Office with Ricky Gervais and have watched all episodes more than once. When the US Office started I tried watching a few episodes but all I saw was actors trying so hard to mimic their UK counter-parts and it didn't work for me.
That was a few years ago, so I thought I'd give the US Office another try but I immediately felt the same way.
I like Steve Carrell but he's no "David".
The dude playing the office "Gareth" is too much and not nearly as funny.
The guy playing "Tim" has the look down but is a little dopey and overacts, IMO.
Should I just try to start over from season one or give up on it?
Have you ever been spoiled by an original to the point that you couldn't enjoy a remake (even though everyone else loves it)/
Did you start watching from the very beginning? I didn't start REALLY enjoying The Office until midway through Season 2. Season 1 felt forced and not quite right.
Yeah, I've seen the first 2 episodes in season one and then I just watched the most recent episode.
Well, if you really "want to" like it, I would watch the entire thing, in order, and give it a chance. If you aren't "getting it" or liking it by mid-season 2, then it probably isn't going to work for you. (That isn't that many eps, as S1 was only 6 eps long.)
It took me a while to "get it" with this show. It always came off so ludicrous. The american version is so over the top with some of the antics, it distracts you from it. I still enjoy the show, but I don't get the cult following it has.
It took me awhile to move on from my love of the original. Your complaints about their counterparts and the UK version are the exact ones I had originally. Season 1 was tough to get through for this reason, especially with many of the storylines being exactly the same. It was too hard not to compare. By the end of the 1st season, though, I was hooked. The characters started taking on their own unique personas. I'd get through all of season 1 and start season 2 to see where you are. (There aren't that many episodes in season 1, shouldn't take too long.) Season 2 is really where the show took off, IMO.
Alright, I'm going to start over again at season one.
Some may wonder why I'm bothering and why don't I just move on. Everyone in my life, home and work, watches this damn show and I've become "that" guy. You know, the same guy that never saw an episode of Seinfeld so he never got any of the references.
IMO, if you didn't like Seinfeld, you won't like The Office. Both shows are the type where you either like them or you don't. They are similar types of humor and I like both shows.
At MIT, they have the Chorallaries and the Logarhythms.
I hate to admit this, but I never heard of the UK version until I started watching the US one. I borrowed my buddy's DVDs of both seasons and it was just OK for me. Meanwhile I love Gervais in Extras. Too bad there won't be another season.
I was also a diehard fan of the UK version, and was very apprehensive of the US version. I did love Season 1, but they were definitely finding their footing, and it was difficult for me not to constantly compare everything/everyone to the UK show. As others have mentioned, by season 2 the show comes into its own and really starts to shine.
At this point I think of the two versions as totally different shows, instead of two versions of the same show. I'd even say I prefer the US version. (gasp!)
I'd say it's worth plowing through season 1 - it's a short season. If you don't like season 2, then I think you could bail.
He's not attracted to her. He figured she'd come running back to him as soon as he gave her the chance and he'd have her to push around again.
Huh? Holly was excited because she thought Michael was going to buy the tickets from her and then ask her on a date. She was devastated when he ripped them up both because she wanted to go to the concert and she wanted to go out with him. Idiot.
She's tiny, her doctor may just want her to gain weight because she's underweight. Even if she does look like a linebacker next to the 90210 girls.
There was something in the episode that did make me think she might be pregnant and now I can't remember what it was...guess I'll have to rewatch!
No, I wasn't "that guy" with Seinfeld. I've seen every episode multiple times and still bring up Seinfeld references all the time. It was my favorite show.
Have you seen the UK version of The Office?
