Question: When will the U.S. version of The Office air? Is there any chance in hell it could be as subtle, smart and hilarious as the BBC original? Corey
Ausiello: After watching the first two episodes, I can say it comes pretty damn close. Unlike Coupling, this U.S. remake is actually funny and surprisingly faithful to the original. That said, as good as the new cast is and The Daily Show's Steve Carell is pretty freakin' good it kinda made me miss Ricky Gervais and Co. I mean, is there any tougher act to follow? I don't think so. As far as an air date goes, NBC is saying spring.
