It may be time to go more straight sitcom and throw out the talking to the camera...
    Breaking the 4th wall has been used for quite a while in comedies going back to the Burns and Allen show in the 50's. For this show I think it really works.

    talking to the camera makes the show that much better.

    Watching the moment that Jim finally asks Pam out on a date and her reaction to the camera is just incredibly sweet. You are right it does make the show that much better.

    Any scene with Kevin and or Creed are the absolute best. I love Kevins bands Scrantonicty and Scrantonicity II and loved the episode when Phyllis and Bob Vance got married with them playing the reception, a wonderful show.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Re: The Office

    My favorite episode is when Michael finds out that Oscar is gay. And when Toby comes into to tell Michael that Oscar is gay.


    Toby: Apparently you called Oscar "faggie" for liking the movie Shakespeare in Love more than an action movie.

    Michael: It wasn't just an action movie, it was Die Hard!

    Toby: All right Michael, but Oscar's really gay.

    Michael: Exactly!

    Toby: I mean for real.

    Michael: Yeah, I know.

    Toby: No, I mean he's attracted to other men.

    Michael: OK, a little too far, crossed the line.

    So I gave into all the hype, and actually watched this show the other day. And I must say, it was one of the worst shows I have ever seen. If someone could please tell me what I'm missing that makes it entertaining, feel free to let me know.

    Not a big fan of laughing?

    But I'm guessing you pretty much come on this site to disagree with the majority, which makes your sig hilariously ironic.

    I was just saying to some buddies of mine the other day that it would be hard to believe that anyone has ever watched the Office and not liked it. We all agreed, and began making a list of people in history who wouldn't have liked it. I will not post the list because it was pretty out there but have you know mole 44 you are now a proud member

    Re: The Office

    Which one is Creed? I'm very bad with names.

    My favorite is Stanley, who consistently voices the way I feel pretty much all the time. I was a big fan of the British office and held out on this one for a long time, but it is incredibly good. it's now gone about twice as long as the British version, I think, so the characters have become better developed as well.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    AFAIK, the British version was a 1-season production that was followed up with 2 "holiday special" episodes. At least this is all that is available to borrow from Netflix.

    IMO, the British version has its charms and a few completely hilarious moments, but it's more of an acquired taste than the US version. Whenever I watch it, it takes my ears a while to get acclimated to the British idioms in the dialogue.

    Creed is the crazy older guy with short white hair. He has a blog.

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    I think the British office was two seasons (or "series" as they call them), plus the holiday specials. That's from my memory though, which isn't always reliable.

    And yeah, that Creed guy is a riot. I had no idea that was his name.

    Angela is actually named Angela.
    Creed Bratton is actually named Creed Bratton.
    Phyllis is actually named Phyllis.
    Oscar is actually named Oscar.
