    I know it's probably too early to be starting this, but dammit, I'm excited.

    The episode description: A Dunder Mifflin weight-loss initiative causes the branch to diet and become obsessed with their weight.

    Hopefully beets help you lose weight.

    I think this guy isn't too excited (ex-BBC Office writer):

    A little biased, for obvious reasons. The American version is nowhere near the brilliance of the original, but it's still very much worth watching.

    Apparently, the Scrantonese didn't take well to his description of their town.

    The wife and I tried watching a rerun of the British version on BBC OnDemand. We had to give up after 10 minutes because we couldn't understand what the hell they were saying.
    I'm sure if you can comprehend the accents (and I do watch some BBC stuff -- I'm a big Doctor Who fan) it's funny. But those accents sure are thick.

    I like the US version of 'The Office'. It gets better with each episode IMO and I have watched the British version. I actually prefer the Scranton office.

    ! Tonight !

    The night starts with "My Name is Earl."

    Is Seth Green really that short, or is Jason Lee gigantic?

    Both, I think.

    FWIW, that episode was really ... sweet.
