Fall TV and The Office

The new TV season has begun, which means new episodes of The Office, Parks and Recreation and How I Met Your Mother (word of advice: do not watch HIMYM after watching Mad Men). In a recent post, Andrew Sullivan posted the video below on his blog while referencing Tom DeLay on Dancing With the Stars. It reminded me of how great the British version of The Office was and if you have never seen it, I highly recommend it.

The British version is a bit harder to watch because the “Michael Scott” character (Ricky Gervais as David Brent) in the British version is actually more pathetic and narcissistic, but in a less “lovable” way. In other words, Michael Scott, screw-up that he is, has a good heart, I think. David Brent: eh, not so much. And that makes watching him and his antics sort of painful, which is what I mean when I say “harder to watch”.

Anyway, here’s the clip:
