Recent college graduate Benjamin Braddock is trapped into an affair with Mrs. Robinson, who happens to be the wife of his father's business partner and then finds himself falling in love with her daughter, Elaine.
A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover "home" on their own terms for the first time.
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
A remake of the hit 2001 BBC TV series The Office (2001), this is a mockumentary that documents the exploits of a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Made up of head chief Michael Scott, a harmlessly deluded and ignorantly insensitive boss who cares about the welfare of his employees while trying to put his own spin on company policy. With an office including the likes of various peers who have their own hangups, The Office (2005) takes a look at the lives of its co-workers: bored but talented salesman Jim, his mildly sociopathic, butt kissing enemy Dwight, mildly righteous receptionist Pam, and indifferent temp Ryan.

I haven't seen the BBC original and after seeing the "American version" and seeing how much more people enjoy the UK version, I'll definitely have to look into it, because I love this show! Certainly the acting is a little bit over the top at times, but I haven't found it to be so distracting.
If the jokes are taken straight out of the original, I think that's unfortunate, but since I haven't seen the original yet, IGNORANCE IS BLISS! The writing is hilarious. The acting is a little over the top at times, but I don't find it to detract from the writing.
Maybe I'm a stupid American, but I love this show, and I look forward to the next season.
