So. The Office is not Coupling. Possibly thanks to the executive producers, the show was magnificent. The changes for a US audience were minimal and very funny, but the essential documentary nature of the show, the cringe-worthy moments, and the stolen moments when we see more than they think we see were all still there. Another 1/2 hour tonight, hopefully as strong as the first episode. Check it out. I especially like the effort that NBC went to to fake a whole corporate site for the company, Dunder Mifflin, which has "branches in Buffalo, Stamford, Albany, Utica, Scranton, Akron, Camden, Nashua and Yonkers." Here's hoping that the American audience go for the format & don't hold out for the 30 second laugh-track that they're used to. Excellent.
