Starring Ricky Gervais

Warner Home Video | January 4, 2011 | DVD

The Office: The Complete First Series is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
Synopsis:

Welcome to Wernham Hogg, a paper company trapped in the suburbs of England where "life is stationery." Critics and fans alike have lauded this hilarious, biting look at everyday office life, played out in the deadpan mockumentary style of cult comedy classics such as This is Spinal Tap and The Larry Sanders Show.

Unlike television's usual glamorous offices full of polished professionals and fulfilled ambitions, the soul-suckingly droll environment of Wernham Hogg teems with a bitter fog of office politics revolving around an oblivious manager and his mediocre cast of employees. David Brent, (a classic character widely compared to Basil Fawlty) the wince-worthy general manager who instigates petty office rivalries and considers himself "a friend first and a boss second ... probably an entertainer third" is far worse than your boss. Brent’s yes-man, Gareth, is far more irritating than the jackass in the cube next to you. Tim, the apathetic sales rep, wears his boredom on his sleeve and is far wittier than the pony-tailed IT guy at your water cooler, and lovely Dawn, the engaged-to-be-married object of Tim’s unrealized affection, is far more endearing than your back-sassing receptionist. Work is hell ... but one man's misery is another man's hilarity. Welcome to The Office.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hillarious This has to be the greatest addition to television comedy in years. Shocking, embarassing, and subtle all at the same time. I'm torn between understanding Gervais' refusal to do a third season and simply WANTING MORE.
