The Office - US-style
On your behalf, I have been scrutinizing video clips of the US version of The Office.
On our screens March 24th, it is a travesty through and through.The scripts are largely direct cribs from the Brit series, so lines are mangled and flubbed even as they pass transatlantic lips.With Brit wit to mouth, the cast is at a dead loss for interpretation. I have no idea if there's a jot of acting talent between them because the assembled 'actors' are up against it just having to deliver the lines as if with a glimmer of comprehension. What's totally loony is that this desecration of a show has been sold *back* to the BBC for showing **back** to the long-suffering limey viewers. God know what the reaction will be. Not much, I auppose, bearing in mind how spineless my countryman have become under the Bush poodle's far from prime ministering.
