The Office (Both the original UK version and then the US adaptation)

I feel in love, or should that be hate, with David Brent and the staff of the Office because it was a comedy with a difference. No laugh tracks at all.

Infact, all the laugh out loud moments were based on cringe and embarassment which made it a fairly unique show. David Brent is possibly the most unlikeable character ever created in a TV show.

The US version is a rip-off and it did take me a few episodes to get used to it. Now I like it just as much as the original. Steve Carrell (40 Year Old Virgin) plays the boss and is a far more likeable character
than the boss in the British version.

In the first series alot of the jokes and storylines are total rip-off’s from the British series but in series 2 the American writers get the idea of what the show is all about and they write a very watchable show.
