Loved it! Sat down to watch one episode and ended up watching the whole lot...very addictive.
Hilarious - laugh out loud and fantastic! Really needed a good laugh and this more than provided it. It is such unassuming, quiet comedy, no silly pratfalls or toilet humour - just good old-fashioned... Read more sarcasm and intelligent one-liners! Loved it - recommend to everyone!
Ricky Gervais at his cringeworthy best as the loser who tries to be cool and politically correct, but digs himself in deeper every time he opens his mouth.
I have to say this was a cringably wonderful series. It is rare for me to be so embarrassed watching a film / pro gramme, but this did it for me (in a good way!).

I've got to be honest - I think this was really hyped, I didn't find it anywhere near as good as I was expecting. It was pretty funny in parts and the guest actors are great but I don't know that I... Read more could say I enjoyed it as much as 'The Office'.
It's nice to see that Ricky Gervais can be someone other than David Brent. In The Extras although he has scenes where he is as socially inept as Brent, he also has some great speeches and social commentaries... Read more.
Even funnier than the episodes though, is the outtakes and 'extras' - Finding Leo is hilarious. Can't wait to see Season Two.
