When "As if..." was originally conceived and made by the UK's Channel 4 in 2001 it made a big change to the usual p.o.s programs relating to late teens/early twenties life. I then had the displeasure of seeing the US's attempt at imitating the series in 2002 and boy oh boy was it a failure (which ultimately resulted in it's cancellation ironically).
The Americans have a knack for remaking other countries TV and Movies and generally making them worse we've seen it with movies such as The Ring, The Italian Job and Abre Los Ojos and with UK television series such as Coupling, Trigger Happy TV, Banzai, As if... and undoubtedly this will also be the case with the American attempt at the comic genius that is the office, I just wonder when the TV networks will get the picture that they can't translate British humour to American shores successfully, keep it on BBC World in it's original British format - that's where it's at it's best.
