Can we please try and CHEER for this show to be good? There are a lot of people who haven't seen the show on BBC America and this will be their first exposure to something that has been incredibly hyped up. If they come to this board and just keep reading how much it sucks, and how it isn't as good because of X, Y, and Z, then we'll be partially responsible for turning people off to a potentially great show. Why wouldn't we want it to be funny and to succeed?
They're saying that the first episode will be based on the original pilot script. I'm going to reserve judgment until the original episodes air. I loved Office Space, and I have faith that Greg Daniels will not stray too far away from that mood.
From The Onion interview
with Ricky G.:
O: Do you have any fears about the U.S. version of the show?
RG: Uh... [Laughs.] No, I don't have any fears, because I didn't do it. [Laughs.] From what I've seen, it looks really good. I didn't make it, but they used our script for the first episode that I've seen, and the cast are really good.
I think that the picture looks great; the way that Steve Carell's hair was made to look like it's plugged is awesome. And U.S. "Gareth" looks just as creepy as our dear Mackenzie's version!
