It is funny
20 November 2008 | by toddmondok1See all my reviews

Why do people always have to compare ...remakes to the original. Personally, I have never seen the Austrailian version of Kath and Kim...nor did i see the British version of Sanford and Son, and it was a 70's hit. I like the American version of the Office better, ...i'm not saying the British version is bad,...in fact is quite funny. None the less,..The Show was a bit slow, but there are their odd...uncomfortable moments that make for funny television. The fact that they don't realize how nuts/off base they are makes it better, I say give it time. Selma Blair is hot and Molly Shannon is as quirky as she was on Saturday Night Live. Remember Seinfeld got poor reviews in the beginning, and the acting was horrible and awkward,...but look what became of it.
