haha ^^ so true! i really hate internet arguing, especially British/American or any cultural clash to be fair. the thing is, the people who argue are too similar, and thats why they argue!
ive not seen the office series, English or American but Ricky Gervais is a comic legend, though i hear in the USA version Brent is played by a younger, more beautiful actor

Argueing on the internet is like running in the special olympics, even if you win you`re still retarded.

i like the original because its the original, the only reason i dont like the american one is coz most of the gags were done in the british one

Let`s just wait for the French version and then we can have a REAL argument. And maybe the Germans can get involved. Don`t think the swiss would though for some reason.

For the record, I am a Yank who saw the British version of the office first. IMHO Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are comedic geniuses, and the original is infinitely better than the American version. If you don`t understand things in the series such as Red Nose Day, Flat Eric, and pub quizzes, look it up or ask someone. Don`t automatically dismiss it as "not funny".

Nicki, if it is all in good fun, then I apologize. I`m not one to try and diminish a good time. As for people who don`t get the humor of that clip, you will have to watch the entire British "The Office" series. The uneasiness, the absolute absurdity of the boss thinking he is liked and his minion hops in to join in the charade is humor in charm. One last time, let us all stop the bickering and appreciate hillarity for what it is. By the way, I just watched the second half of The Office Christmas Special. I am sooooooo happy with that ending. It almost made up for Arrested Development going off the air.

I didn`t find it very funny, but I can`t really make a judgement because it was really poor quality video and I could hardly understand what they were saying. Very blurry. I`m sure there are better clips though

I didn`t find it that funny at all. American versoin of The Office is much better than this crap.

I`ve been watching comments on this site for nearly the last year and have been dumbfound by the battle between Brits and "Yanks" as we are referred to. It only struck me just now what I had not noticed before. The battles seem to rage between children/teenagers. As a person who has studied comedy for most of my life I find that it is enjoyable on all levels. Some British comedy is hilarious, just as some American comedy is hilarious, just as some Brazillian, Canadian, African...etc, etc, etc, is hilarious. Comedy is not meant to spurn battles of "whose culture is funniest", it is meant to be enjoyed and laughed at. Jack Handy once said, "Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why so many of us died of tuberculosis." Now that`s funny. Oh yeah, and Gervais is a genius comical actor. I nearly ripped a spleen watching him squirm out of why he was at a Catholic meeting in an episode of Extras on HBO. So let`s all laugh an

no, the reason us brits over `ere dont like the american version is coz its a blatent rip off and its not even an original, not coz of the accents.. we like loads of american comedies - such as friends, the simpsons.. etc etc etc... u get the point :-P

ok this is why people have different opinions on the 2 versions. Americans like the american version because they relate to it, they don`t find the british version funny is because of their accent.. it just doesn`t work for us.. and vice versa.

I didn`t know they didn`t do red nose day in america

And...
British humour is far too intelligent for you...
Most probably why you don`t find it funny

note this is only for the humor of enraging nikki: SCOTT AND BRITT COMEDY SUCK ENTIRELY THEY DONT KNOW HUMOR AT ALL, A SMALL ANIMAL COULD DRESS UP LIKE A WOMAN AND SIP SOME TEA AND THEY WOULD FIND HUMOR IN THAT WHY, IDK THERE STUPID LIKE THAT I GUESS


on a more serious note i think comedy is getting to vulgar, atleast in america it is..
