Welcome to Wernham Hogg, a paper company stuck in dreary old Slough, where life is stationery. Critics and fans alike have lauded this hilarious, biting look inside the cubicle walls as a cult classic in the vein of This is Spinal Tap and The Larry Sanders Show.
Meet David Brent, the worst boss you'll never have. The wince-worthy regional manager thinks he's the funniest bloke around, and territorial yes-man, Gareth Keenan would undoubtedly agree. Self-proclaimed team leader Gareth is constantly bickering with witty nemesis Tim, an apathetic sales rep who wears his boredom on his sleeve. Tim is trapped in their ridiculous little world - but the center of his universe is lovely Dawn, the betrothed receptionist of his affection and the reason he returns each morning.
Will Tim escape the too white walls of The Office? Will Dawn choose the right man? Will MI-6 ever call on Gareth to help them out? And will David Brent ever regret letting a film crew into The Office? The answers, plus extra features including David Brent's e-mail correspondence and full music and lyrics for 'Freelove Freeway' are all inside the complete scripts to the first series of the phenomenally successful award-winning television series. (Plus, view the first series in its entirety on DVD, which is packed with great bonus features.)
Hell is other people...in The Office.
