All time classic and so quick to get there.
Not always funny, sometimes quite sad for what is regared as a comedy show, but ALWAYS watchable. Cant beleive this and Phoenix Nights were on TV around the same time, u wait for 1 classic TV show and the 2 come along

 Best Comedy...Ever.

Now you may be thinking really? the best comedy ever? Yes, it really is in my opinion, the best comedy ever.

'The Office' is split into 2 series, 6 episodes in each series + 2 christmas specials. Each episode lasts approx 30mins. So 30minsx12 of footage + 1hr 30mins of xmas specials. About 440 mins overall of great comedy!!!

'The Office' is set as a documentry, which really gives the feel of 'unintentional comdey.' The acting is so superb, you really think that this is a real documentry and not a fictional paper merchants. The episodes follow suit which, if you watch in order, concludes to the a great ending.

All in all, this is a must have to add to your dvd collection. Buy it NOW.

You shouldn't think twice about purchasing this, its one of the best comedies! Ricky is pure genius! Really worth getting it, perhaps rent maybe series one first if you are unsure, but i 100% recommend it, but although that is only my opinion.

 JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE?

| | See all THEMOORE's reviews (184)

Have you ever worked for a boss who thought he was the funniest man alive? Have you ever been stuck next to some jobworth who sucks the life out of you? Have you ever been secretly in love with someone? Did you tell them how you felt? Well the cast of Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant's fantastically embarrassing mockumentary The Office have.

In just twelve episodes (two series) and two Christmas specials Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant have crafted a brilliantly funny but embarrassing comedy that charters several days in the lives of the workers at a paper company. From the outset it is clear that The Office is like no comedy series that has gone before (especially as there was a gap in the market for decent comedy when this was released) and although very different and very funny indeed it is not a classic like the likes of Only Fools and Horses, or Porridge. It is however; very unique and quite memorable for how different it is. While not solely relying on in your face humour, The Office can be very subtle at times and at others the comedy drains from the atmosphere and the story actually becomes quite serious, yet it is so well written and acted that this seriousness of the story can be very engaging or moving, especially for fans of the Tim and Dawn reunion.

The show also boasts a great cast too, with Ricky Gervais heading up the show as the embarrassingly funny company boss David Brent who tries to be that kid in the classroom that the other members feel they have been lumbered with, the same goes for Mackenzie Crook's obsessed Gareth Keenan. Lucy Davis and Martin Freeman play the office's golden couple while there are some great guest appearances by Ralph Ineson (as; Chris Finch), Stirling Gallacher (as; Jennifer Taylor-Clarke), Patrick Baladi (as Brent's rival Neil Godwin) and Steven Merchant - Gervais' co-writer - as a man called "The Oggmonster". Highlights include; the training day, Brent "faking high blood pressure as a way of not getting promoted, the quiz, Keith's appraisal and of course that brilliant ending in the Christmas specials, although there are loads more. A brilliant comedy series from the turn of the millennium that certainly got the credit it deserves, even if it is not to some people's liking, that is well worth a look at and is much better than Extras (Gervais and Merchant's succeeding project) and it is certainly Ricky at his best.

 The BBCs Greatest Comedy

Ricky Gervais may have first appeared on The 11 O clock show but it was with BBC comedy The Office that he truly made his name both in the UK and US where the show collected a number of Golden Globes.

As well as starring as arguably one of comedies most memorable characters in David Brent, Gervais also wrote the office alongside the ever funny Stephen Merchant. By setting the show up as a documentary and resisting the use of catchphrases and laughter tracks the pair have created one of the most intelligent and unique comedies ever seen on British television and, with the fantastic two-part Christmas special that brilliantly wrapped up most loose ends, The Office is must a watch for any comedy fan.
