    He MUST mean the style. The humor is MUCH more subversive than the Office ever was.

    Haha, not sure if the triple post is an inside joke about the show or if you really don't agree with me.

    Exactly. Fake documentary (they even speak directly to the camera and he explains that it's a film crew), the deadpan humor, and how they continuously drop funny lines that almost seem unintentional.

    Posting glitch 101 for me. If at first it doesn't post... try try again. :) :doofus:


    I saw an interview with the cast members and directors/producers. They emphasized the huge factor of improv that goes into the final production. The editors have a ton of editing out to do when the crew breaks up in the middle of an improvised scene.

    BTW... WWDITS is a New Zealand made art comedy.

    PS... it is up for an Emmy. Jackie Daytona will be present.
