From what I've seen of the British version, The Office (UK), it's hilarious, but sometimes a little too awkward. The American The Office has its awkward moments as well, but is always played off in I suppose a more upfront "American" way that often side-steps the painfully awkward into silly awkward and always funny.
But in this week's episode, "Business Ethics," I was squirming! I loved the way the episode turned out for Michael and Holly, but I felt so awful for Holly most of the episode and for Michael half the time, and for the rest of the group with the Meredith situation... just too much awkward and not enough laughs!
What did you think? Was "Business Ethics" too awkward or still classically Office funny?
