    Jim was great in the finale. But I just love Jim. :D

    Favorite episodes? I think mine is the George Foreman grill one.

    ***SPOILERS***






    Stupid Andy though.... although the new HR lady (I've suddenly forgotten her name) thinking that Kevin was mentally handicapped was hilarious.

    Yeah you guys gotta watch it.

    I think that Casino Night is my favourite episode



    ***SPOILERS***

    omg I know, but the best part is that Kevin was pretty much acting mentally handicapped... and he was all "She totalyl wants me" lololol.

    Yeah, Andy is dumb... but OMG the very end with Dwight and Angela. I was alone, but I actually cheered outloud :D

    Oooh... I LOVE Casino Night! Another one of my favorite's is the "Initiation" episode, where Dwight takes Ryan out to his beet farm. :D

    Well, webisodes online start in July, and season 4 comes out on DVD September 2nd, and so I'm assuming sometime fairly soon after that.

    I've never seen the american version but I've heard it is quite funny, but I doubt it will be better than Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's BBC made classic. Just bought both seasons the other day actually, a bit difficult to keep borrowing my brothers' dvds when they live 500 miles away lol

    Really? I thought they would be readily available in Canada. My brothers have the boxset but I bought both seasons separately the other day when Ced and I were in town.

    I live in America.. it's the other one that lives in Canada ;)

    I've heard that the American version is better, but I'm going to be a little biased... not because I am American but because I LOVE the actors in it and I've grown quite attached... and I've seen every episode.

    I love all the dudes they chose to play in the American version. I can recognize them anywere now. I saw Jenna Fischer in Blades of Glory and I was like, PAM! Lol. I also watched The Last Mimzy because of Rainn Wilson lol.

    Rainn Wilson is PERFECT. I love him in The Office. Dwight just might be my favourite chacacter, maybe.

    I don't have to see the American version, to know the British version is better. The only reason the American version may be good is because Ricky Gervaise had a hand in it, and he steals the show in the British version. I think that the humour probably is a lot different as you can see that the humour in British shows is more 'daring' if you compare them to American shows.

    I've seen both Offices, and whilst I love British humour, the American one is funnier. I never really liked the English version. The English one's humour is a bit "off-set" for me. Ricky Gervais imo is somewhat overrated; the British have funnier comedians. Overall though, I tend not to watch either of them.

    That being said, Blackadder and QI owns The Office.

    Have you not noticed that Steve Carrell can only play one type of role. He's funny, but only in infrequent doses.
