    I know you're all stuck in your cubicles all day, but tonight on NBC is the
    premiere of The Office. You know, the blatant ripoff of the (probably)
    superior British version. Last time NBC pulled a stunt like this Coupling
    was moved to the Recycle Bin. Anyway, Steve Carrell, in addition to being
    from the great state of Massachusetts, is one funny sunofabitch. I rather
    like the original Office, but I'm willing to bet that the new one won't be
    great, but worthy of TiVoing.

    Tonight at 9:30, I believe.

    I wasn't as impressed as I thought I'd be. The previews make it look
    funnier. Although it is better than most of the garbage on TV. But Tivo's
    set for a Season Pass nonetheless.

    Lessee, what was it that Briscoe originally posted? Oh yes, here it is:
    "The Office. You know, the blatant ripoff of the (probably)superior
    British version"
    I dunno about you, but to me that would rather imply some vague
    familiarity with the show.

    Yes, well, the sublime subtlety of the above seems to have passed you
    completely by ;-)

    Well, you are a Scot. We don't expect much from Scots. Just whiskey
    and...umm...uhh...nope that's it, just whiskey.

    There is no best show on tv right now. It all sucks. What doesn't suck
    initially is so buggered up with commercials that it ends up sucking like
    a black hole.

    Pffft. Without the commercials, our one-hour shows must be only half-hour
    on the Beeb.

    Or do they insert extra scenes to make them a full hour?
