By the end of the short-run first season, this show had managed to overcome my skepticism by not trying to be the British version and, instead, creating its own creature out of the original's tone and style.
Though some viewers might find it difficult to adapt to this series' painfully intentional awkwardness, for older audiences, it's well worth the investment.
As the show got more original, it also found stronger legs. While the original idea of the characters from show to show may have been the same, each actor has managed to make their part their own in the American version.
And though it grates to admit it, the American version of "The Office" is very funny - for viewers who never saw the original series on BBC America.
While no one who saw the original will forget the character created by Gervais, [Steve] Carell is nothing short of superb in crafting his own version of a boss who is utterly unaware of how he is perceived by others.
