Cartoon Network will air the original, British version of “The Office” on [adult swim] — really? I have to use the brackets? — according to [adult swim] founder Mike Lazzo. From /film:
That’s a done deal. It’s happening. …The only thing I don’t know is when to put it on.” The rather awesome acquisition follows in line with [as]’s recent importation of British comedy series The Mighty Boosh and the utterly craze Look Around You.
I’m looking forward to this, as I’ve never actually seen the original with Ricky Gervais. I meant to rent the series on DVD, but then the American version debuted, and I liked it, and I said that I liked it, and a bunch of people sniffed and said that they wouldn’t watch it because they liked the British version so much, and Ricky Gervais was genius in the British version, and it could never be as good as the British version. Are you one of those people? Go ahead and punch yourself in the groin. Really, it’s okay, you deserve it.
