    I just watched that episode the other day. I too really enjoy the subtle humor found in the show. It's what makes it what it is, IMO.

    The facial expressions are what strike me the funniest - and the hopeless dynamics.

    I enjoy this show, but it isn't my favorite.

    I can see how INTJ/INFJ would really enjoy the wry humor especially, though. They seem to be big fans of the kind of subtlety that makes up the fabric of this show.

    The British one is even more dry. Anybody watched it?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Haha. Stanley, though not one of the more prominent characters is one of the funniest to me. His facial expressions (or maybe it's his lack of) and his really dry, downer attitude is a riot.

    I'm sure you did notice it if you saw the episode, or maybe just forgot it. During that bit, the camera flips to interviewing Jim and then Pam, talking about wanting to see/claiming to have seen before, the little DVD screensaver box hitting the corner.

    Love it, but sometimes find it hard to watch when it gets too awkward. Especially w/ Michael's more horrible moments.

    Original and best.
    Ricky gervais at his best. INTJ/ENTP humour!

    I like the British version and, again, love how it's hilarious one second and makes me want to huddle in a corner and cry the very next. The British series is definitely darker.
