The Office, BBC, 11/9/03

Anyone else watch this?

It's one of the most hilarious shows I've seen in a long, long time. Got the first season on DVD and was hooked. Season Two's been great too, very funny last night, except that David the boss apparently got fired. I know he can't be gone for good, so what's going to happen next?

spoiler!

I'm only about 1/2 way through this episode.

I like the show a lot more than I thought I would. The characters are very realistic, and have their own [annoying] quirks, and the 'reality show' aspect of it doesn't grate on me nearly as much as any of the other reality shows [I hate reality shows with a passion, I'd rather watch test patterns.] And it is often compared to Office Space, but I didn't like that all that much.

To mix classic BBC show references, David is such a smeghead.

The Office is hilarious, but also sad too--I keep saying, 'I know that guy! He's in the office next to mine!'

What's worse is when you realize 'that guy' is you. It happened to me halfway through the first season.

The Office is the best sitcom on TV.

There were only two series. They say that they may at some point do a special.

SO, any idea what's up with David being made "redundant"?

[I don't use spoilers when the episode's already aired.]

My favorite character is receptionist. The looks she gives are just priceless.

I'd be Tim. The guy who has no idea how he got stuck in his job but still jumped at a chance for a promotion.

Tim actually turned down the chance of taking David's job.
