Anyone else been watching it, and how do you think it compares to the original. I actually think it's quite good.
but then I never really watched the The UK Office.
The first episode was just a re-enacting of an UK episode but since then they've come up with some funny, original stuff. The basketball episode is great.
thats on tonight, I look forward to it.
or whatever he's called, is rather good isn't he?
I expected The 40 Year Old Virgin to be another American Pie-esque film. The fact that it wasn't came as a pleasant suprise.
Everything he's done has been surprisingly enjoyable.
However, this worries me: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0413099/
to Bruce Almighty?
They should have called it Evan's Above.
Same director though, might be interesting. Actually the first one was shit, this'll probably better it.
in the first one? Isn't he the one who goes "fner-fner-fner" during a broadcast 'cos Bruce wants his job or something?
which makes me think it'll be dodgy. How are they gonna link Evan to God?
that "fner-fner-fner" bit was funny.
Let's elope : D
Please say "Will And Grace" was a sarcastic comment!
My fave UK-America crossover was when the took One Foot In The Grave, stuck Bill Cosby in the lead role and called it ....Cosby!
Coupling = Friends.
and make a US version of Coupling? They thought it'd be The New Friends, but it failed. Spectacularly.
I wonder what accent they gave the crazy Welsh guy.
ALL Mexicans are hilarious.
I had my fingers crossed for a French-Canadian. 'Cos if there's one European country that's like Quebec, it's obviously Wales when you think about it.
There was one ace episode though, where Comedy Welsh Guy chats up a Hot Chick who's from Israel and doesn't speak much english. So they did the show in 2 halfs, one from his POV and one from hers.
The welsh one pretends hes got a wooden leg.
the dawn charachter isn't single, and he boyfriend is a REAL jerk, he almost hit tim just for talking to her last night.
The dawn charachter is also very fit.
I think it's really good, different to the english one, but very good nonetheless.
woken at the crack of Dawn.
i thought the Dawn character was fit as well. But which would you prefer, Lucy Davis or her?
Thats a toughy which I'll spend a ast amount of time contemplating. At them minute, I'd probably say the American one, for the simple fact that Lucy Davis is Jasper Carrot's daughter, but my mind may change with time.
we allready had?
We should make a thread. In the announcements board of course.
of Elton John and his bum-chum. Only we'll replace teh bum-secs with watching The Royal Tenenbaums or something.
The Royal Tenenbaums only sweetens the deal!
On a side-note, my mate and I were talking about bum chums and decided it should definitely be chum bums when referring to gheyers. Bum chum would be reserved for homeless people who were friends.
It's definately bum-chum for a gayer.
For tramps the term is 'hobos-who-hold-hands'*
Now that we have gay-marriage we need some new terms though. How about 'Husbumd'?
*sorry that was shit.
This is golden...Pan-Pot. Eh? EH?
But can't you see it? Bum chums, definitely meant for the homeless.
but it all depends on context, and your use of the euphanism 'bum'.
Pan-Pot? Better than Mon-Ic I spose.
If we find someone called Glen for some menage a trois, we could be called Moc-Ic of The Glen!
Mon-Ic Of The Glen*
The search for a Glen BEGINS!
While we're out, let's also find an Ali, a Lewis, Gary Lewin and Natasha Kaplinsky. Then we can have: Mon-Ic-A-Lew-In-Sky.
One of my best mates in school was called Garry Lewis.
Do we have to have Natasha Kaplinksy though? I hate her with a bland passion. Well actually I hate the scheduling decision that puts her boring morning news programme on BBC1 and News 24, meaning I can't get a decent news update in the mornings. So much for digital TV meaning more choice for the viewer eh!
Or BBC.co.uk, it's where I get my news from.
I'm to bed now, early morning tomorrow.
I gotta drive to Heathrow so I should scoot off really.
Curb Your Enthusiasm,
Malcom In the Middle,
Scrubs (which has grown on me LOADS)
...to name a few
I love Scrubs, God, elliotts fit.
fraid not, Elliotts a woman.
you were a girl actually.
and I'm sure you'll agree.
Never in a million years did I see that one coming.

Ich bin eine Junge, du bist eine Madchen. Nehnahnehnah.
