Good price for a great show. If you stick with it through the first couple of episodes this becomes as good, if not better than the original.
Same price at amazon but no discount or quidco.

An adaptation of Ricky Gervais' sitcom THE OFFICE, THE OFFICE - AN AMERICAN WORKPLACE is a comedy that follows the daily lives of employees at a fictional paper company. This collection includes every episode from series one through three, chronicling each moment of the flirtation (and much anticipated romance) between secretary Pam (Jenna Fischer) and prankster salesman Jim (John Krasinksi), as well as the painfully quirky exploits of super-geek Dwight (Rainn Wilson), and the gently angsty existence of the temp, Ryan (B.J. Novak). The show's true locomotive, however, is their boss, Michael Scott, played with masterly comic timing by Steve Carell. Scott is a middle manager of such shudder-inducing obliviousness that one never knows whether to be protective of him, embarrassed by him, or simply enraged at his behaviour; the only thing Carell's performance guarantees is an endless source of uncomfortable entertainment.

Much much better than the uk version. Maybe not as funny but much more in depth, interesting stories.

Yeah agree, A very under rated series this side of the pond - should ben on prime time
5 series and still going strong in the USA. Slighlty different comedy style to Brent but still brilliantly funny. (It would be great to have Gervais in 1 episode).
I would jump at this offer but ive downloaded all these episodes.


"Thats what she said"

First series wasn't great, (basically because it was a remake of the uk one), but it has gone from strength to strength since then. Hot...

This ones actually funny compared to Ricky Givais's Cr.ap so called Acting1

A great show, once they found their feet.

Being about 4 times longer than the UK series it allows for deeper characterisation, but is remarkably high quality throughout.
