title says it all
Haven't got a clue, but what a fantastic show it is.
I'm still hoping for an R1 of BBC's The Goodies (see sig). Just released this month on R2 so I'll keep hoping.
The Office is the best and funniest british comedy series since Fawlty Towers. The Pal region 4 version is a 2 disc set and contains the first 5 episodes plus a marvelous Documentary and several outakes and easter eggs. The 16x9 transfer is excellent. Gareth: "I don't do sloppy seconds"
I don't know if it's on R1 DVD any time soon, but it IS being shown on BBC America, I believe.
Well, I'd have trouble with calling it one of the great sitcoms (it's not as funny as I'm Alan Partridge, The Day Today, Brass Eye or the criminally underrated People Like Us), but it's a fine piece of comedy nonetheless. Out of interest, how do the US TV broadcasts deal with the amount of strong language in each show (F-words and such)?
BBC America broadcasts So Graham Norton? That's interesting (it being a Channel Four show, a rival station to the BBC).
Quote:"There's six episodes in the first series Doug" Oops! How right you are Rob. The region 4 disc does contain the first 6 episodes. The second series is just as hilarious, so I can't wait to purchase that DVD also, when it becomes available. I don't believe it's typically English alone, I think anybody, anywhere in the World who has had a boring, dead-end office job will relate to the characters and situations re-created in this incredible series. I'm sure I've encoutered some of these people in real life.
There seems to be a fair amount of Channel 4 stuff, that for BBC America is on BBC America. (How's that for redundant?) Even Norton does commercials where he says to review his guests "at BBCAmerica.com" so.... And, yes, I have heard the f-word on BBC America on several shows, including Mr Norton's. Mark
How very interesting! Do they ever screen (some of my favourites) Bottom, People Like Us or I'm Alan Partridge? If not, request them - they're fabulous!
