That show is mediocre at first but towards the end of the season it gets really good. Robert Carlyle (Rumpelstiltskin) is awesome on it.

re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

I've always thought the US Office was a collection of the most unbearably annoying characters put on one show (other than Jim), yet it works to an extent. I can't watch more than an episode at a time without going crazy though. Ed Helms' Andy is beyond annoying, I want to shoot him, in the face. Don't think I could handle the show when he is now the focal character.

How people even are able to watch Catherine Tate is beyond me, she's not funny, she says sentences in accents and weird voices which apparently qualifies as comedy?

Season 1-6 of the Office is brilliant, season 7&8 were okay, definitely had their moments. This season feels a little odd, they've made Andy into the new Michael (meaning he's a dick) but without the funny moments and heartfelt moments to even it all out. I mean the last episode he was just awful.

I can't believe Community should have been on last night and instead we have to wait till the new year
Yeah that really caught me off guard. It really threw off part of the season premiere for me. I guess he has a reason to be mad at Nellie, but damn. It was like a total 180 when the first episode aired. Hating Toby sort of made me chuckle considering that was the ultimate callback to being the new boss/Michael.

McQueen, I wouldn't say Andy is the focal character this season. Nobody really seems to be. Kind of depends on the episode being centered about a specific character.

Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

The Office this week was pretty mediocre, last week was brilliant. Andy has never been very funny, and Jim came off as a prick, more so than most other times.

Still funnier than the UK office.

I never get people who compare the two.

Except for the first 2 episodes of the US one, they are COMPLETELY different shows. The US one has surpassed anything the UK one did and has become it's own entity.

This week, Jim became a huge manipulative prick who somehow had decent reasons to be so, but it didn't feel right to me. Dwight and his workbus

You couldn't be more wrong (and as I've already said thats from a HUGE fan of the US Office seasons 1-6).

Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Ricky Gervais' originals are normally good, I like his style, he keeps his seasons short and the amount of season he does of his shows, sort. And US TV and UK TV are different in that you get 3 or 4x the amount of episodes you get in a UK season in a 'standard' US season. So when comparing The original Office and The US one, there's a nig difference with the longevity.

Well I still dislike the character so much that I haven't bothered to watch it since the "Who will be the new boss?" cliffhanger and hearing he is the boss now doesn't make me want to watch.

I have no problems with Ed Helms in anything else, just that character.

I disagree. US Office has more likeable characters and the characters all have awesome chemistry. And Michael Scott is a much better character than David Brent, just like Steve Carell is funnier and more likeable than Ricky Gervais. And just like most British humor, the UK Office is dry and boring.
