I have just seen an NBC promo for the US version of The Office. Hm. It doesn't look terrible, but it seems they've made a near carbon copy of the original with American accents and different cultural references.

Found a UK review of it, results predictable: "Mostly the script is identical to the original, although some changes and additions have been made to suit the US audience.

"'It's like some surreal world that has stolen jokes from The Office and made them not funny at all,' said one poster on the Digital Spy Forums."

The title of the article is "American 'Office' preview unimpresses UK fans". Maybe it wasn't illiterate enough for them?
