A Tale of Two Shows
I had never seen the British version of The Office before and didn't catch on to the American one until recently, but can see why it recently won an Emmy for Best Comedy and can't get enough of watching the DVDs of Season 2, which we received from Netflix the other day.
No other show captures the intentional and unintentional humor that we can all relate to like The Office. Here's hoping it stays funny and doesn't jump the shark.
Meanwhile, how much longer will I stick with Lost? After an intriguing first few minutes where we see the "others" dressed like everyday people living in suburban looking development on the island as the plane crashes, we proceed to learn nothing in the remainder of the episode. Once again, no questions answered, more questions raised, and lots of frustration.
