Better than the Ricky Gervais original....!
on 14 September 2010
Season 1 of the American version of the Office gets off to a bit of a slow start as the character development begins. In later seasons you'll note that many of the original character's have moved on leaps and bounds. It is well worth pushing through the first 6 episodes of season 1 to then move on to the hilarious dialogue and excellent chemistry displayed by this awesome cast. Season 2 sees the romance angle really come into it's own with Jim longing over Pam like Ricky Gervais' original characters Tim and Dawn in the English version of The Office. What's great here though is that as time goes on this angle can be explored in more detail and ultimately becomes more rewarding throughout each season. The addition of Andy Bernard (The Nard Dawg) in Season 3 if my personal highlight. He is an excellent character that adds an extra flavour to my favourite show. If you enjoy this box set then you'll be very happy to learn that Seasons 4, 5 and 6 are also now available. I say roll on 2011 so we can all enjoy Season 7......cos in my opinion The Office: An American Workplace is far more superior than Ricky Gervais' original Office.
