The Office is a revolution in camerawork; the series are noted for a pseudo-documentary format and the array of employees at Wernham Hogg or Dunder-Mifflin. Admiration for either show results with a The Simpsons vs Family Guy impression, thankfulness or flat-out somewhat reliable enjoyment.
Since Season One, the shows have the same foundation, yet the two shows went down different paths to express each character, etc.

Ricky Gervais hosted this year's Golden Globes and his humor hit highs and lows, but everybody's taking note of the lows, right? Raw insults and Gervais seems like a guy who'd be cuting slack. All that makes Gervais' role, David Brent, shine in the second season, which I just couldn't understand the low-cut jokes and maybe half the time, what was going on...  maybe I shouldn't have been watching the show in a drowsy state at 2 in the morning.

Steve Carrell shares the limelight with everybody else in the office facility. The Thursday-is-Friday prank, the office parties, marks as perfect occasions for absurd and drunken behavior to happen. There's a basic science to it, but everybody's gotta be cracking up at an episode in The Office series.

Character development and increased interactions is other evidence that people can truly change, even the slightest bit. I was surprised at Mindy Kaling's voice; maybe she's intending that pitch for her character.

Romance -- The UK says that men and women can just be friends, the US-- everybody's out to get some. Another reason with all the dildos and obscene objects in Gervais' version versus the union of PAM AND JIM (and his confession and their coffee room talks and AAAH!) A final note is the flow-up interview moments.. the UK cover face shots, whereas the US is chest and upward.

I just couldn't understand the UK dialogue and the jokes, so I'm confortably biased on the matter between "Which Office?!"
