I'll save a lot of you the comment, 'The UK version is better'.

However, if you're like me and disagree and love this, then this is a cracking deal. The entire collection for £23.68. That's seasons 1-9.

This version is far superior to the UK one. The episode Stress Relief from Season 5 is one of the funniest. Heat from me.

never watched these, do the first 2 series follow the same story as the UK ones?

Thanks OP, ordered for my wife who loved this series.

The first season does and I think that's what put a lot of people off, but as soon as you get into season 2, it takes off in all different directions. Brilliant show.

It very loosely follows the same ideas. Saying that, if you don't sit there comparing the two, it actually is a very good watch.

I'd have loved the UK Office to have had more than 2 series so may give this a go, I take it Ricky Gervais wasn't involved in the writing?

To be fair, only the pilot episode apes the UK version, and it's frankly embarrassing. S01E02 "Diversity Day" is a great episode and starts to show the different direction they took.

He has a producer credit and David Brent makes a couple of cameos...

Was an executive producer or some such title. He actually appeared as David Brent in two later episodes

A tad cheaper at Zavvi, £22.99

I’m very tempted by this, does anyone know if the DVD’s still have the sped up audio issue?

Once it went in it's own direction it ended up a great comedy.

Don’t watch series 1... this version is better than the UK one, which hasn’t aged well. Also there’s only one scene with Gervais, so.... buy this.

Its 2017, the era of buying DVDs is over...

I've bought it 3 times in the last few years, from different retailers and even with different packaging.

Unfortunately all had the same awful high pitched voices issue.

Perhaps someone watching it for the first time wont notice it as much but for me, I have watched each series several times over the years and I couldn't watch the box set copies due to the above reason.

Thanks son, we'll get you socks for Christmas instead then.

I love this but the only thing putting me off buying it is the sped up audio 🤔

Shame there are no offers to buy from an online streaming service like Google Play. Would be much more convenient and better quality.

Last 2 seasons are terrible with no clear leader in the cast but 7 great seasons is still a massive bargain at this price

I still rewatch it to this day but I always skip season 1. Great show until Andy becomes...you know...

Love this show. Great price.

Great show with a superb collection of characters.

Beets.
