My husband bought this BBC version by accident. I was mad at him at first because I wanted him to buy the American version. We have now watched these DVD's over and over and over . . . never tiring of them. This is the funniest show we have ever seen! Ricky Gervais is brilliant as David Brent - the very sad, but very funny boss of a paper company. Each character is brilliantly cast. We even cried at the very last show not only because it was the last one but because it was so touching and they ended it so inspiringly! When we finally did buy the American version - we turned it off and watched the BBC version for the 3rd time instead. We hardly cracked a smile with the American version - it does not even compare. We are now Ricky Gervais fans for life!

Fantastic Buy!

by Kerrie on 10/11/2006

I loved this box set! I lived in England last year and got hooked on this show. I had only seen the first two seasons before, but the end of the second leaves a lot of loose ends. With this set, the special contains two following episodes that tie everything together-it was so awesome to see! Definite must buy for anyone who enjoys British humor. Read More

Editors Note
Note A huge hit on BBC America, this release contains the first and second seasons of THE OFFICE, alongside the acclaimed Special episodes:^THE OFFICE SEASON ONE: When the Wernham Hogg paper merchants needed someone to come in and shape up their office, they found the man who definitely thinks he is the most capable candidate in David Brent (Ricky Gervais). Brent rules a tight ship, but at the same time tries to be every employee's best friend. Brent is the centerpiece for this brilliant satire of 9-5 office life. Camera crews follow Brent and his employees around in this British series that uses no laugh track, and doesn't need it. The razor sharp comedy will have audiences in stitches. When released in England, this wickedly funny series broke all sales records for non-film DVD releases.^THE OFFICE SEASON TWO: David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is up to the same old sorry tricks in the second season of the BBC's masterful comedy series THE OFFICE. Unfortunately for David, his company has merged and coworker Neil (Patrick Baladi) is now his boss. Nonetheless, David retains his hopelessly "cheery" demeanor in order to stay pals with Tim (Martin Freeman), Gareth (Mackenzie Crook), and Lucy (Dawn Tinsley), who see through his pathetic facade. The only bad thing about Gervais' masterful comedy is that he chose to conclude the series after only two seasons and twelve episodes. This release ensures that audiences all over the world will be able to relive the hilarity for many years to come.^THE OFFICE SPECIAL: With David Brent (Ricky Gervais) receiving his marching orders at the end of THE OFFICE's second season, this two-part special shines a light on what happened to Brent in his post-paper merchant career. The office itself now falls under the watchful eye of Gareth (Mackenzie Crook), who took Brent's job, with his sparring partner Tim (Martin Freeman) going to increasingly odd lengths to make Gareth's life a misery. Meanwhile, Dawn (Lucy Davis) and Lee (Joel Beckett) have moved to the sunnier climate of Florida, but don't appear to be terribly thrilled about it. Brent blew his redundancy package on a pop career, which ended before it had really begun due to an awful single (a cover of "If You Don't Know Me By Now," with requisite cheesy video), and now plys his trade as a travelling salesman who sells cleaning products. But the documentary makers have some fun in store, by bringing all the former Wernham-Hogg employees back together for the annual office Christmas party. Naturally sparks fly, but the laughs still come thick and fast, as do a few surprises as the show reaches its dramatic, and poignant, conclusion.
Reviews
Entertainment Weekly "It's filmed reality-TV-style, yet has huge repeat value -- mainly because first time around, the cringe factor makes you wince before you laugh." 11/26/2004 p.78
