A hilarious comedy that originated on the BBC. Unique in that it focusses solely on the dreary, average
lives of office
workers. The humour is dry and the jokes
are cutting and politically incorrect.
12 episodes and are viewed as classic British comedy, starring Ricky Gervais
and Martin Freeman
. An American network, NBC
the show, and is currently running over 2 seasons. The American version (with Steve Carrell
) had a slow start but picked up speed
and came into it's own in season
People always say the British version is better because they're snobby and it seems
the right thing to say.
