Not exactly the Rosetta Stone, but...

I have, as of late, been spending more time online watching TV shows because I recently canceled my cable service. To my surprise, I've found this show, which is a German version of The Office called Stromberg. I watched the first episode and I think the series will serve as a good refresher course before I head off to Germany.

Incidentally, it occurs to me just as I write this post that I've now watched three distinctly different versions of the same basic show. I've watched virtually every episode of the original British and American versions, and now I'm going to see a fair amount of the German one. It's interesting to see how the different nationalities play the main characters; I could write a term paper on how cultural differences affect characterizations--as soon as my German is up to snuff enough that I can get all the jokes, of course.
