8.5 star

Amid the rumors of downsizing, Michael (Steve Carell) tries to raise employee morale with a birthday party, despite the fact that the closest birthday is a month away. As the birthday card for Meredith (Kate Flannery) makes the rounds in the office, Michael struggles to pen the funniest birthday message. Meanwhile, Dwight (Rainn Wilson) asks Jim (John Krasinski) to form a "Survivor"-type alliance so they can protect themselves during the upcoming downsizing. Elsewhere, Oscar (Oscar Nunez) collects pledges for his nephew's cerebral palsy charity walk. Michael tops everyone's donation by offering twenty-five dollars - not realizing the donation is per mile - and tries to back track on his generous offer. Jenna Fischer and B.J. Novak also star..

Great comedyIf you're looking to own one of the greatest comedies, look no further kids! Definitely collect this series. However, I would also recommend the original British version to REAL fans if you have not seen it. I actually saw that series before this Americanized version. Both are funny, but the British version's humour can be less obvious to the "everyday American". This version will have you in tears!.Score: 5/5

UK - give it a whirl, you will come to love itThe first series on its own admission is a pale immitation of the British Office - it's funny but not hilarious, however as the series progress and the American writers and performers get to do their own thing it just gets better and better. Steve Carell is obviously brilliant but the whole cast just grows in confidence and become better defined and the results are hilarious. BJ Novak (Ryan the temp) and Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor) write superbly as well as perform. Among all this you have the genius of Dwight Shrute (Rainn Wilson) and Andy Bernard (Ed Helms - the hangover) two of the best TV characters ever and the Tim/Dawn (in the US Jim & Pam) relationship is developed more. Start the journey folks - there are six series and it's addictive. You will love it - promise..Score: 5/5

10/10This is the funniest show i have ever seen. its the best. i think you have got to have a sence of humour to get the jokes and the way they do it. in some ways its not in your face funny. its like its hidden humour. im a huge fan of the english office. but this is alot more upbeat and funnier. worth watching!!!!!.Score: 5/5

A million times better than the UK officeMostly down to the fact that Steve Carel exudes charm and beauty- Gervais is just vile and loathsome- he makes my skin crawl and thats not the character that's just what he exudes. Watch this, watch all seasons and be inspired by the storylines of finding love but also laugh lots!.Score: 5/5

Excellent show (better in later seasons) and WE HAVE HD!!!I love this show, but the first season doesn't really get going with any of the characters. It's good, but this show only really goes from good to great from season 2 onwards. It's great now that all seasons have come out in HD too, and at very reasonable prices as far as I am concerned. But when are we going to get season 4? (to be fair, it's not on DVD in the UK yet either) I hate being so far behind the US..Score: 5/5

LolA student has beaten the master - as Mike would put it. The british version is darker and had a different humor, slower humor. US office on the other hand has FAR better cast (sorry uk), far better characters (i'd blame this on the number of seasons) and better jokes. I really like brit humor, but at some points it was just plain in tasteful on the uK series, whereas in the US spinoff, even when it's too much, it makes sense, since it's there for a reason. In US all the characters show theiy have different sides… And so on....Score: 5/5

Great :)This show is just fantastic, much better than the UK office where its just ricky gervais acting like an idoit and im from the uk so..... Also, the fact that the cast chosen for the main roles (excluding michael) make the humour in it so fresh and new. It is a very good show..Score: 5/5

Steve Carell (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) stars in this sitcom based on Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's award-winning comedy. Told through the lenses of a documentary film crew, The Office exposes the humorous and often foolish events at Dunder-Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. In this first season, Dunder-Mifflin Regional Manager, Michael Scott (Carell) leads the documentary team and his staff on a journey through inappropriate behavior, well-intentioned but misguided comments and a myriad of poor management techniques. Michael has no clue that his employees can barely tolerate him. In his mind, he is their guru, their mentor, and their cool friend. His staff includes his dedicated-to-the-point-of-annoying assistant, Dwight Schrute, office receptionist Pam, and likable sales rep Jim. During the six episodes of Season 1, Dunder-Mifflin tackles tough subjects including company layoffs, diversity initiatives, health care, and office alliances. Anyone who has ever worked in a "team" environment can appreciate the humor and suffering of the Dunder-Mifflin staff and The Office.
