You just reminded me that lately I have been watching Scrubs from the first season - to the last. Every now and then when I have a bit of time and the disc is finished I'll go back to the menu and switch on the german dub and re watch some of the episodes. Because I already know the stories and have seen the actual episode a couple of times before I can piece together most of the dialogue and even pick up some new phrases. I always wonder what the German does when they use English word play in the episode... but I can never follow it closely enough to understand it.

I would never have thought to use the word 'wie' as interchangeable with 'als'.

Wie - like/how
als - as

"I always wonder what the German does when they use English word play in the episode.."

funny you mention that. most of the time stuff like scrubs, 2,5men and whatnot is much much more enjoyable in english...i rarely watch it in german nowadays.
while you obviously still get what the story is about, even in german, some of the fine nuances, especially play of words are often lost in translation.

yeah, simpsons is great in English and good in German, but family guy for example is fantastic in English and BOOOORING AS FUCK in German.
most shows are MUCH better in English.
one exeptioc: King of Queens!
the dubbed version of KOQ is actually better than the original.

if you wanna see a really funny German show: Stromberg.

Re: Native German Speakers

That happens with all languages, I hate watching dubbed shows or films cause if that. Although I have to admit that regarding Spanish, the Spanish do it better than the Latin Americans cause to avoid the word play issues they pretty much change the whole joke or dialogue to a more "colloquial" way that actually makes send to Spanish people. It might be impossible to correctly translate some word play, so they change it so it's still funny. OT yeah cause it's not German, but it's my experience with dubbed stuff

Actually I think Strombeg is quite a bit better than the office...MUCH funnier IMO...although I admit that 90% of the humor will be difficult to grasp for the OP since it's not really the "jokes" that make it but the way he's speaking/constructing his sentences...well, or rather not finishing the sentences)...believe me, it's really much funnier than the office once you get into it (I watched all the office series myself, UK and USA)
