Takes the characterizations to their logical conclusions and slips in a twee little womantic arc to take the edge off the eye-gouging choke hold thrown down by Gervais. You almost want to run screaming but it's just too funny & nasty. Primo.
Best Finale Ever!!!! If you have seen the rest of the series it is vital you watch this. Aaaah closure. I love you. This is why I haven't watched the American version.
Much of this is funny in a quirky sort of way but it is much slower than the original series. Slow enough that I eventually lost interest
Awesome DVD, great, funny a real hoot, well recommend. It would help if you watch the first series :)
These 2 episodes were 2 of the better ones! David Brent is his classic tactless git, many major cringe factor scenes in this one.
You must see the previous 2 series to appreciate this finale. The acting is superb, the' plot' so very believable. Classic British understated comedy at its very best. Tim, Dawn, Amp& David all have happy endings...ahhhhh!!
A classic Television series anyone who has worked in a modern office environment will recognise at least one of the characters. Done in a "fly on the wall" style the humour is dry and the atmosphere realistic. Excellent viewing.
As good as any of the episodes in the first two series. David Brent, the manager of a stationery supplies has this amazing ability to make you cringe to the point where you want to smack the telly... Read more, and yet feel a real empathy for him (great acting as always from Ricky Gervais) and as the final episode pans out its rather satisfying when he finally comes up trumps for once. A real tour de force of clever characterisation with something called subtlety that will be entirely lost in the new USA version.
To mind my nowhere near as good as the original series (or on fact all twelve episodes) but the "special" was interesting with Rickie trying to stay exactly in character as David Brent while talking... Read more about the two series! Please no more specials etc as The Office has to ranked up there with Fawlty Towers as a "one off"!!
Having watched "The Office" avidly on TV - often from a hiding place behind a cushion - I was a little nervous about watching the sequel, as the series' ending had been so well crafted. However, the... Read more Specials more than matched the series. Somehow the director/actors/writers etc deftly turned around the reactions of horror and crawling embarrassment felt towards the Brentmeister, and by the end of the two episodes, I had gone through the ..haha - you got what you deserved to the well, I'm a bit sorry for him (because the new boss was such a self-righteous suit) to the hooray someone likes him..continuum. Not bad for two episodes! And the happy ending for Dawn was so well-deserved that anything else would have been deeply disappointing. Excellently well-done!
