Soon you'll be able to beat your kid, so, those whore beating days will be over post-haste. Yes, I know that the series is incomplete without the last episode....the video with Brent is beyond funny...it's easy to do fake/funny videos, but that was transcendent....and the end was touching, even for a straight up gangsta like you....cos, you know what, Beav? Gangstas need love too.

The American one is more sit-comy. The English one is more of a documentary of a complete moron, and a brilliant love story. They're kind of too different in many ways, but I prefer the English one.

I also like when shows end, instead of getting dragged out and ruined.

I don't want to beat my kid. I want to beat hookers. Make me feel like a real man, yes? [/borat]

That was exactly what I was thinking of. If the X-Files had quit when Moulder left, I'd have all the DVDs and I'd watch them over and over, but it got so silly I lost all interest. The Office though, I can watch anytime. Same with Arrested Development or Firefly.

What'd I just say? American TV values commerce over art, largely, so most series are allowed to go on way too long. Deadwood is an example of the opposite....a succesful show that ended after 3 seasons, as it should....and largely had to, since it is based on real life events.

BBC Office is superior to me, and as Beav points out, different in tone....NBC version is funny, for sure, but there's something about the BBC version that places it a notch above.

It's very real. The special is sometimes hard to watch. The NBC version will never do that. American's hate TV like that. They don't have the patience for the descent followed by the rise to victory. Once it's uncomfortable people tune out. It's a shame cause it makes the payoff so much better.

I think that is actually pretty much why I don't watch tv. Except for PBS
