Not to state the obvious, but the every episode of the UK and US versions of The Office are on instant. Obviously if you haven't seen them, you should. Immediately.

Can anybody give an unbiased recommendation on both based on inappropriate content? In terms of content, is one version worse than the other? Are some seasons better than others from this standpoint?

Hell yeah! Shin Chan.
That show is like Simpsons in japan.

Both venture into risque territories, but the UK Office can get very raunchy sometimes, to the point where I'm shocked they were allowed to get away with some of it on network television. I mean this in terms of cursing, sexual innuendos and such. Truth be told, though, the whole point of The Office is that it captures uncomfortable moments. David Brent and Michael Scott (the bosses on the UK and US Offices, respectively) have no concept of what is and isn't appropriate or politically correct, so a lot of the laughs come from their cluelessness of basic social norms.

What I'm trying to say is, The Office is supposed to be inappropriate, but not for shock laughter. In other words, you're not laughing because David Brent made an incredibly racist joke about black people, you're laughing because David Brent is clueless enough to think that it's actually funny. Even if you're easily offended by somewhat lude content, as I am, I would still check out the show.

That being said, I'd definitely stick with the US Office if you're interested in the show. There's far less cursing and innuendo, and you can mostly pick out which episodes are going to be racy just by looking at the title (example: there's an episode called Sexual Harassment. Guess what sort of territory that one ventures into).

I hope that's somewhat helpful :)

There is no way I could watch the UK version of The Office with out comparing it to the US version the whole time so I have never even gave it a chance.

I'm pretty sure it should be the other way around ;)
Trust me, it's a completely different show. You owe it to yourself to watch it.

I think most people would end up liking which every one they watched first more and since it was the US for me it wins. :)

I watched the US first, and was convinced that it was the greatest comedy since Seinfeld. Then I watched the UK Office ;)
I hope I don't sound like I'm putting down the US one too much because it truly is brilliant. I just think the original did everything better, and within a more compact series of time.

Didn't think anyone would reply to that, lol. Yeah there's only 2 seasons...is there more? I heard something like they stopped making the show after that...(or stopped making American versions...)

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...

I don't think the Nick stuff will be going anywhere. It's not like there's official means to buy the shows anymore (except for Invader Zim) and I'm sure they're all very popular so Netflix will keep renewing them for streaming.

Anyone who wants a good film should load up Devil's Advocate (if its there).

Was watching it in english and it's really good.

Thanks Kid_A. But the US show hasn't gotten more or less raunchy over time or anything, has it?

EDIT: The first four episodes were pretty funny and not that inappropriate.

I like how they've now combined seasons together into one series.

Just saw Astonishing X-Men. It's a great show but it a little short, only 6 episodes.

Nah, with very few exceptions it really doesn't get much worse than that. It does get funnier, though, so definitely try to at least watch the first few of season 2 :)

Hey, anyone interested in starting a Netflix Movie Club? Basically, we vote on a movie to watch, and then we watch it, and we all give our thoughts on the movie. It'd be cool if we could get a tinyChat going on, and we could all watch it at the same time. It'd be fun. Anyone interested?

I'm interested, though I don't watch many R-rated movies and not a whole lot of PG-13 movies either.

@Panda Yeah, me and a few others will hopefully be able to find appropriate movies for us to watch. It'll be fun if we can get a few more people.
