The Office: Special Edition


 The Office: Special Edition

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/21/11

I'd seen bits and pieces of this show, and I think it's very funny. I don't like the U.S. version. It's a subtle, dry kind of humor, and it's well done by the British. Ricky Gervais is hilarious, anyway. I love his stand-up comedy as well. I am very glad to have the whole set to watch.

Besides the original 12 episodes, It has a lot of great commentary. It is very well done. It's not audio commentary like on other DVD's. They actually have visual commentary where they introduce the episodes. Also, any other well-known comedians from the UK and U.S. discuss the show.

There are also other features. One is a documentary called "Comedy Connections: The Office", which you can only find on this DVD set. It shows how the show came about. There are many interviews with the cast and crew of the show as well. It's a good set to have.

I enjoyed it a lot. I think any fan of comedy should love it. It would make a great Christmas gift as well.

About The Office:

BBC AMERICA first introduced U.S. audiences to the comedy genius of Ricky and Stephen when it premiered the show in 2003. At its launch The New York Times called it “pretty much the funniest show ever” while Newsweek declared it the “best comedy on television”. It went on to win two Golden Globes, inspire the U.S. version on NBC and continues to influence the tone and look of everything from television comedy and movies to commercials and pop culture at large.

The Special Edition DVD has all 12 episodes and the 2-part Holiday Special with bonus features including:

· The original pilot

· Six specially recorded introductions of every episode from Season 1 by Ricky and Stephen

· An exclusive documentary Comedy Connections: The Office which traces the history of the show

· Interviews with the original cast including Ricky, Stephen, Lucy Davies, Mackenzie Crook, Martin Freeman and Ewen Macintosh as well as celebrity fans Ben Stiller, Christopher Guest, Matthew Perry, Richard Curtis and David Baddiel
