I have heard good things about True Blood, but I have not had a chance to watch it. What is it like?

I had a friend in grade school whose last name was Trueblood. True story, and not related to the topic at hand.

I've been watching all the American The Office episodes. I Hated the first season, ignored the show until the third season, watched the occasional episode and then ignored it again until the 7th season. Then, Ricky Gervais made a cameo and Will Farrell is said to be in the final episodes, so I've been watching it again.

I'm a huge British Office fan, and simply hated how cartoonish the American version was. It also didn't help that the US pilot episode was a word for word remake of the first episode of the British version. :P

Still, after seeing all 7 seasons, it's pretty good! Dwight and Andy are always hilarious. Michael has his good episodes and his bad episodes. Seasons 2,3 and 4 are the best. 5, 6 and 7 gradually slip into Looney Tunes territory and are so-so.

What I really hope for is that Will Arnett replaces Steve Carell. Or Will Forte. Either one.

Wow thanks. That is just crazy I had no Idea that the show was that intense. That is a little  disturbing. Certainly interesting. I will have to check it out.

I started watching the British Office, then I watch the Golden Globes and developed an attitude towards Ricky Gervais. I enjoy other characters in the show, I only watched 5 episodes from the first season. I have not gotten back into yet unfortunately.

@Barry:
I completely agree with you on the first season of the American Office.
The show got a lot better when it stopped trying to copy the U.K. one and started doing it's own thing.  Dwight and Andy are pretty much the best. The new secretary's fun too.

I'm always amazed at how many British shows they try to remake in America.
I don't understand why they cant just air the (very often) better original.

They tend to always lose their charm.

I'm still most offended by the BBC 'Planet Earth' series narrated by the living legend that is David Attenborough being redubbed for America... Like holy shit WHY WOULD THAT HAPPEN!?

Even then it was redubbed by Sigourney Weaver... Who has most boring voice I've ever come across.

My god.

Saw the first series of Skins (Euro Fag version). It was pretty decent, I have not seen the American one yet. I might give it a go after I see the next two series.

Also: Europe remakes quite a bit of American shows too... its not one way. Don't know how complaining about 'The Office' is helping your cause when its universally agreed that the American version is way better. Its rare, but it happens.

@Sharky:
They changed the narrator for the film version too. Patrick Stewart to James Earl Jones.

On TV topic, I just finished watching all of LOST. I'd avoided letting anybody know I was watching it for fear of spoilers :).

American version of the Office isn't better, so much as it had way more episodes to develop the characters. When it comes to the Brit version, while the characters aren't as developed, every episode is tight and well written. I find the Brit Office to be amazing, simply because it is perfection through all 12 (14, with the special) episodes. I could watch all of them in one weekend and come out thinking "damn, that was great", meanwhile watching all of the AMerican episodes over the course of a few months, It goes from so-so, to great, to good, to very cartoonish, to poor, to better... just not as consistant.  Plus, I totally bought that David Brent would be fired that fast. Meanwhile Michael Scott should have been let go by the second season. lol

Both great shows, though for different reasons.

Steve Carell better be blowing Ricky Gervais, to thank him for all the money he made. It's only fair.

Really interested to see this weeks The Office, I assume Michael will go on a killing spree or something.

You guys are wanking fools. Come on, serial? The American Office has delivered more laughs, for cubic foot, compared to the unfunny brit version. COME ON. COME ON. COME ON.

Almost done with the 3rd series of Being Human. 3rd series is the best so far, much faster pacing story.

Just started watching The Twelve Kingdoms. I'm five episodes in at the moment and it's pretty interesting.
