Book Description

2 Oct 2003 Scripts
In the BAFTA-winning comedy about the Slough paper merchant where life is stationary, David Brent is more appalling than ever as his personality spirals out of control. His slow descent into semi-madness is chronicled here, in The Office, The Scripts volume 2. Following on from the phenomenal success of series 1 voted Comedy of the Year at the British Comedy Awards the second series averaged over 4 million viewers, with a 25% audience share. This book features the scripts from all six episodes and contains over 500 picture screengrabs taken from the broadcast masters and available exclusively in this BBC publication. 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

4.0 out of 5 stars Things can only get better 4 Oct 2003
By A Customer
If you thought the first series of the Office was good, wait until you see this.
In series 2, the Swindon and Slough branches of the papermerchant merge, leaving David Brent (Ricky Gervais) with a whole host of new characters to try - and fail- to impress.

Now of course, reading the script can't bring the comedy to it that only Ricky Gervais's performance can, but as he wrote the script (With Stephen Merchant), it's almost as good. Pictures are included, and sometimes little extras.

The perfect gift for any Office fan, so they can sit and read along with show! Don't laugh, I know you all do it!

One of the funniest things on TV in years. Ricky Gervais and his team are comic genius in this. Bring it back!

Essential reading for any budding BAFTA writers - its nearly as funny as watching David Brent, baffling in action. Nicely presented with photograps/screengrabs from all the classic cringe moments of this amazing series. Includes screen direction and character descriptions - excellent (10/10, full marks, 100% Etc. Etc.)

5.0 out of 5 stars The humor leaps off the page. 12 Jun 2004
By Inspector Gadget - Published on
One would imagine that the mere written words that make up The Office scripts would lack the dark humor and timing of the show. Fortunately that ain't the case as the scripts are just as funny and draw attention to elements that may go missed on the show. And from a writing point of view, it's interesting to see how well characters and situations are developed with the sole use of dialogue and minimal action description.
The scripts are printed on glossy paper with 2 or 3 high-res photos per page and are book-ended by funny e-mails and notices from David Brent himself. A definite must have for fans of The Office.

5.0 out of 5 stars love the humor 23 Feb 2004
By "whendelicious" - Published on
I have every episode of The Office including the specials and I can't get enough of it. I highly recommend this book to any enthusiast of this comedy phenomenon, especially if you're an American.
I consider myself pretty quick to pick up on the subtleties of British humor, and I think I catch pretty much everything, but I cannot deny that Brits speak much faster than I am used to and therefore welcome any reinforcement that the scripts give. I also like to quote funny lines from The Office and this helps me to get them right...stupid huh?
Anyway, there are also some good photos of the TV scenes as they play out in the scripts. Cheers Office fans =)
