A genuine gamechanger. Gervais being a complete prick shouldn’t cloud the fact that it is one of the funniest shows ever made and it’s format was genuinely revolutionary

I watched the first season of the US Office when it came out, and hated it. Left it on the shelf for years, but eventually came back to it and LOVED it. Rating both a 5, I think at their best both are some of the best comedies to have graced our screens.

PS. I hate Gervais.

The way they ended the Christmas special was PERFECT. The Tim/Dawn love story was absolutely superbly handled throughout too.

I only watched the first four seasons of The Office US, I heard it went downhill after that, is that right?

Think it’s good up until 7 iirc. The last few are traumatic.

Fanbase for the US office seems poisonous and full of terrible people which is why I have not watched it

David Brent telling Finch ‘Why don’t you just fuck off?’ is one of the best TV lines ever

Rewatched the UK one a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely hated it, didn’t think it was overly funny and iffy with its humour.

The us one is nice

Never got into the US version but the original is a definite 5 for me. Just not an ounce of flab on it. Revisited it a couple of years ago expecting it to have aged badly in the wake of Gervais outing himself as a bellend but it’s still really great

Jim in The Office USA clearly should have stayed with Rashida Jones

Season 6 for me, so you’ve got at least one good series left
