A hilarious comedy that originated on the BBC. Unique in that it focusses solely on the dreary, average lives of office workers. The humour is dry and the jokes are cutting and politically incorrect.

The BBC version aired 12 episodes and are viewed as classic British comedy, starring Ricky Gervais and Martin Freeman. An American network, NBC, duplicated the show, and is currently running over 2 seasons. The American version (with Steve Carrell) had a slow start but picked up speed and came into it's own in season 2.

People always say the British version is better because they're snobby and it seems the right thing to say.
"I can't wait until Jim and Pam hook up on The Office."

"Who plays 'insufferably arrogant' better: Steve Carrell or Ricky Gervais?"
