This isn`t the office, this is the American office. English version is far better but no cleveland/stanley.

If you`re so stupid you can`t spell family when you cut and pasted the word, then you fail at life and don`t deserve to be on the internet.

Also family guy really is nothing like the office. Have the people who say they are even watched both shows more than once or twice?

King of the Hill, not really. That show is... well the things it talks about are much more realistic issues and it goes about it in a muchhh different and slightly less comedic way than the others.

And in regards to the other three: Family Guy I`m pretty sure IS meant to be a modern remake of The Simpsons, and American Dad is made BY THE SAME person that made Family Guy, so no duh they`re the same.

big news: every comedy series has some staple character roles.
And it gets even easier with a relatively big cast like family guy. Though i wonder why they didnt take The Simpsons, that cast is so damn big you can compare them to everything. Probably even something like Dallas ^^

Dwight is nothing like Stewie... at all. Besides the two shows aren`t really very similar. The Office is way more intelligently funny while Family guys is mostly poop jokes and pop culture jokes.

Family Guy is not better than the Office. Family Guy is pretty much just "remember that time when..." and then it shows some clip that has nothing to do with anything.

actually it is the other way around since family guy predates the office and is far better.

I liked the British version of the Office just fine... I just prefer the American one. The spin that Steve Carell takes on his character make it so much better. Plus the side characters are better, and the main characters are... well... overall just performed better than the original series.

The US version of The Office is more of a sitcom while the UK version was a bit darker and more tragic. But they are both excellent in my opinion.

Stewie can build a time machine, Dwight thinks the CIA would actually be interested in him. There is no parallel there at all.

It`s not so much that it sucked than it was just completely destroyed by the US version, but yeah, it was pretty bad.

The Office is totally the same thing. Right down to the way that they`ll often throw in a random pop culture reference, then cut to a quick gag based around that reference.

Shouldn`t it be, The Office is Family Guy? Seen as FG started 6 years before The Office.

I already picked up the Mayor West/Creed connection before even opening this, but I thought it would be because of the fact that they play caricatures of their real life selves and they both found their biggest success in the 60`s, (West was of course in the old batman show and Creed was the lead guitarist in the 60`s rock band The Grass Roots).

Family Guy came out before The Office. So that would make The Office a total rip-off of Family Guy.

As Family Guy isn`t an American remake of a British comedy, this cannot be true.
