If you haven't been watching the American version of The Office, you have been missing a very funny show. (Not as funny as the British version on which it is based, but isn't that always the case?)
Of course, after watching tonight's season 2 finale, my first thought was: They've ruined the show.
I hope I'm wrong. I really do.
(If you don't know what's going on, I'll merely note that they've already reached the point that ended the British series, and it's not an easy plotline to continue; we all remember what killed Moonlighting and Remington Steele, don't we? Well, those of us who watched TV in the 80's.)
So I guess if you haven't watched the show on NBC, eh, just get the DVDs of the British series (including the specials), watch those, and if you happen to catch reruns of Steve Carell and company, enjoy these first two seasons. Check back in the fall and I'll let you know whether they can salvage season 3.
