My Favorite TV Comedy

The Office. Who's with me?

This is simply the funniest thing on TV since Seinfeld. I crack up every week, just dying on the floor laughing.

It is like a well-written train wreck. It makes you uncomfortable, but you can't pull your eyes away. I have seen the whole first season of the British version, but I still very much enjoy the one on NBC.

Michael is hilarious and painful and reminds me A LOT of someone who shall remain nameless.

Dwight is too real to be real.

Jim and Pam make the show.

There is the perfect mixture of nutjobs and normal people - just like life.

And it takes place in Scranton!

Some of my favorite moments:

- During the what to take on a dessert island, the blonde lady has to choose three books. She decides on the Bible, the Purpose Driven Life, and the DaVinci Code (so she can burn it).

- Michael on the floor under his desk on the phone with his boss with whom he had a one night stand the night before. We can only hear his side of the conversation, "Oh, so you want to see other people ... only other people."

- Tonight when the big guy calls the intern "fire guy."

The Office. Who's watching it?

Tonight's episode, which is resting comfortably in my DirecTV TIVO unit, will be the third episode I watch. I haven't decided whether I like it or not. There have been some funny moments but I wasn't hooked the first time I saw it a few weeks ago. I'll give it a shot and keep watching. Everybody who's anybody is watching it and I just want to be loved and accepted.
