    I've never seen "The Office," but I do watch "My Name is Earl." Maybe I'll have to check out "The Office" tonight...

    The UK version of 'The Office' or the US one.

    The UK version (original) is one of the funniest & most cringeworthy TV series i have ever seen. My stomach turns when I watch it yet I can't help myself.

    However the US version got canned after 2 episodes over here (Australia) so I never got to see it but by all accounts it is pretty damn good.

    I can't watch the US version of the office because the UK version was so brilliant. Why redo perfection?

    I highly recommend it. You should rent it.

    It seems that the British version pushes the limits. They can get away with having a bit of a potty mouth.

    Has anyone been watching Extras? I only caught the first episode, but it was hilarious. Gervais is so uncomfortable. I love it.

    I'm a big fan of both versions, both great examples of true comical commentary in a market saturated with real reality tv.

    The original UK's version of 'The Office' is freaking awesome. Its amaving how they took the SAME JOKES and used them on the US version. Either way, the US version is still funny, but just not as much as the UK version. I have the first 2 seasons on DVD.

    My name is Earl = awesome
