I rented the first disc of The Office. I’m through the first four shows and it’s fantastic. Every episode seems to get a little better, but the 4th was so good I watched it twice. Ricky Gervais is great in almost every scene, but Tim and Gareth, played by Martin Freeman and McKenzie Crook, play their roles perfectly.
Freeman is supposedly playing Arthur Dent in the upcoming Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie. So far it seems like a good choice.
