A BBC2 office comedy that was a huge hit in the UK. The US version is also very funny, with Steve Carrell starring as the boss. A quiet kind of humour that will have you doubling over.
Steve Carrell: "This is Pam, our secretary. If you think she's cute now, you should have seen her two years ago! Ho boy!"
Simply the greatest show in telvisin history.
Hey did you catch The Office last night?
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.
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?"
The best fucking show ever, staring Steve Carell.
" Yo did you see the office last night, it was hilarious."
Quite possibly the best name for a strip club.
Father - "Honey, I'm going to The Office!"
Mother - "Ok dear, see you tonight."
Incrediably funny, inventive BBC Comedy by Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais about the goings-on at the office of a paper company called Wernham Hogg. Gervais plays the inept office manager, David Brent who confuses popularity with good management. Winner of two Golden Globes here in the U.S. and many others abroad.
There is a U.S. version in the works (visible nervousness, cross your fingers on this one), The Daily Show's Steve Carrell (yah!) is set to star in the central role so there is some promise. But watch the UK version first, cause it will always be the original and the best

The best non-animated comedy ever.
It was originally a very terrible show on BBC, but then someone got a great idea to make a U.S version, resulting in the best non-animated comedy ever.
