How insightful.

I caught the third (? I think) episode on Saturday and realised what it is I don't like about it: it's too good. The acting is proper acting, not the improvisational mucking about that comes across in the original. The sets are too pleasant, the clothes are too fashionable, the hair too smooth. Even Dwight's not a weird looking as Mackenzie Crook and Michael Scott's positively suave compared to David Brent.

I do believe you've hit the nail squarely on the head, Stella! The straight-faced realism of the original was absolutely key for my enjoyment of it. This new one is far too calculated.

The cameos should be interesting. I reckon that Mackenzie Crook will  be in it, possibly Keith as well, though I think it will all depend on whether they are allowed to act as they did in the original or if they will have to alter their approach to fit the American model.

Perhaps Keith can enlighten them all on the 'bum-bag/fanny-pack/minge' dilemma. Over a Scotch Egg.

So, it's been announced that it's Mackenzie Crook & Martin Freeman (the two that the Americans would know)

Yay, I got one of them right. I'm hoping that Keith will be a surprise extra guest though.
