Conquering my fears

I watched The Office last night. First season. And I didn't die. Most people know about my inability to watch things where I am embarrassed or feel sorry for any of the characters. I can't watch Mr. Bean - he makes my stomach hurt. I can't watch George Castanza on Seinfeld - he's just too horrible. I can't do it. I could hardly watch Happy Days as a kid b/c I was too embarrassed for Richie.

This was a big step for me. But, I did it. Just the American version, I don't think I'm up for the British one yet. I love Pam and Jim. I hate Dwight. And I feel so sorry for Michael I could cry, but I held it together. And I even laughed out loud a few times. So... I may watch more of it.


  1. I'm with ya. I was sad to hear that the one part of American Idol that I will leave the room over (even if I am ironing while M is watching it. It was her choice of show for a year. Ick) is the one thing that gets the best ratings: the horrible singers who think they're great. I'd go outside before I'd watch/listen to them.

  2. When I watched the British version, I often did it from behind a blanket. It was like watching a horror movie when I was a kid.

  3. I'm reading the scripts for the first season of the British office and I have to say, I really do like it so much more than the American one. For different reasons though. Cause I would totally jump Jim.

  4. The nice thing about the US version is that becuase there have been more epsiodes there is time for more minor character development.
    Early this week, in honour of National Boss Day or whatever, they showed the David Brent dancing sceneon The Hour. Complete genius.
