Agreed, very good comedy show, and no point trying to compare to UK office as not even similar style of comedy. How can you not love Dwight??!!

Of course you can compare. Which is more entertaining? Uk Office obviously.

Why is it obvious? The US version has had far more time to flesh out the characters and their relationships. The US version was also at it's worst when it relied to heavily on the British influence.

If I had to choose which one I've enjoyed most, I'd say the US version. It doesn't mean the UK version is rubbish, it's just my favourite.

I hated the office US for about the first 4 episodes, since then I have watched seasons 1-5 and absolutely loved it, I prefer it to the british one tbh

I just personally think that the UK version depicts office life a hell of a lot better than the US version.

You still get the sense of relationship between the characters even though its only two series. This just shows how genius it really is. Being British I prefer the Britsish style of humour, even if Americans try it just isn't the same. Hence the term, 'British humour'.

Us version is ok but Uk version is miles better.

They have the same name butdiffedrent comedy styles

UK is very good and more deadpan, clearly much more of a documentary based comedy

US version is not shot in the same style of deadpan comedy, much crazier stuff happening as well so bit more over the top, but equally very good

Would certianly not say they are that comparable - as you can see from when they got the US version to do the 1st episode of the UK version - it just didnt work at all

Hmmm, let me rephrase that.....most people that use the internet a lot and use these kind of sites would surely know how to do this

Not really arguing - it's so simple and means you dont have to wait this long for stuff like the office to come out here

Im not saying they arent different, but it is still easy to compare. You can compare them in terms of which you find more entertaining, you have also compared them in the first sentence so don't say they can't be compared.

Anything can be compared to anything else, saying they are completely different is just a cop out imo.
