Quite frankly, I cannot think of anything I would less like to watch than that but each to their own.I am sure I can find something else.

I am loving it so far this evening, I've got the DVD and watched it many times but it's a good tonic tonight, bucking me up a bit.

Same here. It's hilarious, but so painful to watch David Brent making exposing himself as a complete and utter bellend every 5 seconds.

I loved it when Gareth was investigating the source of the porn and he told Tim he could fire him becuase he "has special...." , and Tim chimes in with 'Needs' - :rofl: :rofl: - The perfect timing and the dryness of it all made me piss myself!!!

I also loved the sub-plot emerging romance of Tim and Dawn. Because it was real. Those hollywood style Hugh Grant/Bridget Jones romcom feacal type packages make me vomit.

And haven't we all seen a similar romance at our own work, or been involved in it ourselves, even if it wasn't reciprocated and she didn't feel the same but led you on for months and months, but I'm not bitter......bitch.

I've been in all apsects. I've had lusts that weren't reciprocated, mange to pull and have even been a target that I wasn't interested in. most of my working life was in temporary places though so it was a case of don't dawdle. :)

Painful is the word I would use to describe my view when I watched a couple of episodes a few years ago.

Reminds me of Norman Wisdom stuff. <shudders> :)

That is the first time I have saw the first few episodes. I really liked it!

Gervais pisses me off now a days with his over inflated ego but even I gotta admit the office was groundbreaking brilliance!
