RevSam a.k.a. Pamela Andersons' Boobs that came to life and did good, should I
invest in a new drive in theatre* or roller rink**? My town let both features die
slow, uncaring deaths years ago and now our only fun is that occasional murder.

Also, should I strangle this unsuspecting elderly?

Please answer ASAP-ASAP!

neither. both of these businesses failed because few people in your town patronized them and they were unable to produce sufficient revenue. while people may talk a lot about how fun they find drive-ins or roller rinks, this enjoyment comes from a vague sense of novelty that both activities promise. in reality, most people do not have enough sustained interest in either to actually make them successful enterprises in this day and age.

HOWEVER, if you feel you must choose one, i would suggest the roller rink because i feel there would be opportunity to market the experience to today's irony oriented youth.
Also, should I strangle this unsuspecting elderly?

no, because that would be a crime and you might get in trouble.

Why was the original British 'Office' so much better than the current American 'Office'?

Why does the one dude in the U.S. version of Life On Mars have an awesome moustache but in the U.K. version he doesn't have any moustache?
Where did that come from?

I can tell you where the original, proper, The Office went horribly wrong: the Christmas special. The whole thing had ended on a lovely little note of bitterness, such that the final twist in the gut was almost beautiful in its icy brutality, and then that damn Christmas thing had to come along and give sappy endings to everybody. It suddenly became a gingerbread man with so much sugar that you could no longer taste the spices.

If you ask me, it should have stopped after the first season. It was flawless. Then it progressively went downhill from there. Still a lot better than the American one, though.

well, any given american television show has a higher budget than any given british show by about a thousand times, so british shows must save money any way they can, by, for instance, only ever making 13 episodes or, as is the case in life on mars, skimping on non-essentials like mustaches.

Why would anyone, even a brit, deem moustaches non-essential?

sometimes, mustaches carry added significance simply by their shape, size, or even simply their existence. mustaches will often convey a lot about someone, such as whether or not they are a shady character or some kind of pervert, without those things having to be at all true about them; worse still, the things that any given mustache might convey can change wildly depending on the era or location that the mustache is displayed in. it is an unfortunate but simple fact that the american television industry has higher budgets than their british counterparts with which to fund their mustache research and development departments and can therefore more easily place the correct mustaches onto the correct characters. in britan, where the status of mustaches is naturally more erratic, the resources do not exist to declare mustaches "essential" unless directed to by the queen (i am assuming).

Providing specific examples, in what ways does the American 'Office' have more and/or better character development than the British 'Office'? And why is that particularly important within the framework of the shows?
