I knew what he was talking about.

Ive seen 3 episodes of Supranos, but didnt find it funny at all, plus ive seen the ending so no point watching it now even if i did like it.

Isnt the Wire about lawyers? I usually only watch comedy/dark humour shows.

Ok it's just that he said you have so much to look forward to and reeled off some more characters from Breaking Bad and you answered talking about a bunch of other shows. Looked like you hadn't gotten what he was talking about...

Meh although it is funny granted, it's not meant to be a comedy. Though if you don't like it then you don't like it Smiley

The Wire is not about lawyers really at all although given the storylines and characters there are obviously a few about. There are several groups/storylines in the show.

The Drug Trade

Police Department

Politics

Omar who is the don!

Later seasons incorporate more groups too like the Stevedores who work the docks and a heavy organised crime outfit run by 'the greek'. You also have the opposing Baltimore drug outfit to the Season 1 crew and later Marlo Stanfield too. It's just a really well worked show with some amazing characters, a couple people I know were sceptical about it too until they watched it and then rinsed all 5 seasons in quick time!

Since you gave such a detailed description, ill download season 1 this week.

I have only saw one of those show, Fringe, and that's my whack!

Watching to many at once dilutes the quality of the good ones, I usually only download one at a time then blitz it.

Am I the only one who thinks of "The Office US" as "The Office" and the original as "the crappy UK version"?

Shame on you.

But I hate to say I know what you mean. I still think the UK one is the best one, episode for episode, but the sheer quality of the US one combined with the fact they probably have 100 episodes under their belt probably makes it the superior. I really enjoy the actual plot development of the US one (for example I hope Andy gets back with that new secetary) which is another difference, although the Tim and Dawn kiss was probably one of the best scenes in the entire UK series. The funniest episode of all of them UK training day episode where Dave Brent goes home to get his guitar.

In short, both are pure quality. I think I heard there was a Canadian one too, I wonder what thats like.

I think Dwight rules all.
UK one is better i think in terms of quality per episode but US version is incred for the fact it's been that good for so long.

US or UK Dave?

FWIW I didn't really like the US version until after the first season as it went along the UK storyline which I didn't really enjoy. Once it got into it's own storylines and they went their own way with things it became absolutely incredible with so many great characters.

PS.  Dwight Schrute would skullfuck Hank Moody AINEC!!!!

Both.

The US one was the best of a very poor pair. Terrible shows.
