    People were looking at me weird while I was watching this on the subway today. Laughing out loud while looking into an iPod screen is a little unusual I supose.

    Wicked show. Can't believe it's taken me this long to get around to watching it.

    The Office is okay, but nothing tops Coupling.

    How do you see Coupling?! I can understand the office.

    Coupling was funny, not as good as the office in my opinion.

    I think the series length is perfect. Too long and its diluted and weak.

    The Office rocks! I only got into the British one after watching the American, but the british is way funnier (obviously). I agree about the series lengths, I like how they ended it, unlike american shows that keep gowing until no one watches them anymore...
    Enjoy it bace

    Thats a good point Daniel. Extras at only 6 episodes was just warming up before the first season ended.

    BBC America and our local public radio station have coupling, Father Ted, and My Hero. Also, are you being served and Benny Hill (dated but very funny - I do not think anyone will ever be as funny as Benny Hill) are on BBC America. I really wish I could get a BBC feed over here in the states there are some shows I really wish I could see Dr Who specifically.

    Two shows I miss (mostely from my children or childhood days) Danger Mouse and Tractor Tom (can be seen on CBC Canada)- but now they love Pingu. Can anyone tell me if Pingu actually speaks a real language?

    Yes it is terrible. It's weak comedy like My Family and stuff like that. Is watchable but never makes you laugh.

    Ah! I wish we could get BBC around here. All of our comedy is so dumb, but I watched that footage of extras, and I thought it was pretty darn good.
