Recently I had the time to sit down and watch all of the episodes of The Office, Season 1. It’s a cool show but not the best show on TV. People talk about it as if it were as good as Cheers or The Cosby Show or other classic NBC hit sitcoms. It isn’t any of those things. While I will continue to catch up, it’s not that great.
Perhaps I’m ruined because I saw the British version of this show first? About two years ago I checked out the original The Office season one from the Romeo Library and laughed my butt off. In U.S. terms it would be rated R… so if you check it out be warned. And as I watched the U.S. version is like the quirky, not-so-funny and squeaky clean cousin to the real thing.
Steve Carrel is funny. He’s very high on my list of comedians… but not nearly as funny as Ricky Gervais
