"Original and accurate and painfully funny: it will have every office in the country twitching with spasms of recognition... This is a gem" - The Times "Scarily realistic but hilarious" - The Observer BAFTA winning comedy about the Slough paper-merchant where life is stationery David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is a petty, pompous boss who thinks hes the funniest, most popular man in the world. Pedantic jobsworth Gareth (Mackenzie Crook) agrees with him. They're both wrong. Tim (Martin Freeman) really is popular and funny but the joke is on him, as hes stuck in the middle of this little world a world in which he hates everything except the receptionist Dawn. Will Tim escape? Will Dawn choose the right man? Will MI6 ever call on Gareth to help them out? And will David Brent ever regret letting a film crew into The Office?
The Office is a hilarious show.It has never gone a sinigle episode with out making me split at the sides laughing.Right from the first time you watch it you will be hooked not only into the characters but also into the fantasticly written storylines.Although any fans of the American version of this show might not like it as it does contain a different sense of humour.I recommend that younger childeren not watch it as it may have themes the shouldnt watch but other than that any one looking for a hilarious night in should definitly watch it!
The pricing on this box set is a bit steep because you can pick up all of the individual cds quite cheaply from Kmart and the likes. Despite that I believe that the die hard fans like myself would love a box set. It is just a pity that I had purchased all of the dvds by the time that this box set had actually came out.
the office is a great series, it's just a shame that it didn't last for as long as it should have. the humour is great, i don't know of anyone who doesn't fond the show the slightest bit funny. ricky gerveis does a great job in this show. an overally really good program, i recommend it.
How could anyone go past this wonderful show?! It is similar to a bad car crash... you don't want to watch it but you can't stop looking! The Office is so awkward, and also brilliant in making satire on everyday office life. I would recommend this to any lovers of English humour... and definitely not to your average commerical consumist. Go David Brent!
The Office is brilliant. Everyone in the cast does an amazing job of creating characters who remind you of someone you've met some time around the office. Sometimes thought provoking, sometimes side splitting, the series is one of those you've just got to see.
Well the Office series is great, takes a bit of getting used to, and once you are in you'll be hooked. A good price for this box set which showcases the entire series and will have you laughing from start to finish. Box sets make great gifts, so this is perfect for anyone who loves The Office or British humour in general. Recommended
This is a freakin funny show!!! It is one of the more recent british comedies that are downright hillarious. I think this show takes a while to get into, as I did not like it terribly at first, but now I really truly love it. The humour is so dry and cringe worthy, I've never seen anything like it. It is a shame it had to end!!
this is a real cult classic everywhere, as the stand up humour and funny one liners from ricky gervais are great, and they often have you laughing out loud. some of the characters are a bit gormless, but many are humourous as, and there are plenty of crazy office moments to laugh at, like the time when they have the shared lunch. a good buy for anyone who has ever worked in an office.
An incredibly popular British TV comedy series chronicling life in the fictional company of Wernham Hogg... hard case show that has no canned laughter, but is made in a mockumentary style... Ricky Gervais is front and centre as David Brent, a rude, socially inept, cringeworthy character who offends every possible minority and will have you rolling around the floor in tears... a great cast, very funny...
the office is one of the funniest shows to hit television screens in a very long time. the british humour in here is classic and it seems that the acts of comedy are almost effortless. the documentary film style emphasizes the humour aswell and it is done really well. a very original comedy.
