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.
