The Office

Watched the entire series of The Office over the weekend, having not seen it in a while. God that was one of the most brilliant, genius shows. I don't understand anyone that doesn't love it. Not like it, think it ok, but love it.

The layers of Brent (including the final softening by the love of a good woman), the nuances between Tim and Dawn, the confetti of characters hovering in the office. The repellant Lee. Sheila stealing glances at an annoyed Oliver. I used to have debates with people about why Dawn said no; I completely get it, the show tapping in so finely to the human condition, but fuck it rounds out perfectly.

So anyway, The Office is the best.

I think it is good as you say, But love it?

It makes me wince when the soiacl blunders start rolling one after another. I suppose I put myself in the situation and can just imagine how I would feel!!!

The US version is a watered down version of the original genius. Ahhh, but the BBC version - you're so right. It's amazing. I love the way that David and Gareth make me squirm with embarassment for them. Or the stress and stomach knots Dawn and Tim give me. The show is just brilliant.
