Am I the only one who hates the stupid 'cards' that are now put on the end of videos. They block the last bit of videos they block names or any other info you might want to see and aprt from that, they are generally a nasty, totally unnecessary intrusion. Why did anyone think they would be a good idea, to be force fed idiot ads for other videos when your watching the end of something!!
Can we not all get a barrage of complaints about them going in the hope they might eventually be stopped!!
I love how after Brent’s date leaves in the taxi after a surprisingly great experience, he looks briefly at the camera but doesn’t gloat...before heading back inside to the party. He kind of wanted to keep the moment for himself, showing that Brent isn’t all about maintaining appearances or showing off, as he has been throughout the series. Very telling scene.
Cuando descubrí esta serie, secuestré los DVD de la biblioteca pública durante tres meses, más o menos, hasta que me la reclamaron porque había otra gente que la quería ver. Y esta escena la repetí no sé cuántas veces. Me encanta el humor! Y el amor! si hasta ví enteros los making off. Me encanta el humor de Ricky Gervais.
This for me is the proper ending to Brent. I disregard the film. This showed him finally connect with someone who appreciated him for who he was, and he seemed more at ease around her. He also stood up to Finch. Then suddenly a film comes out and Brent is acting as if none of this ever happened, he''s back to being the attention seeking and weak man from before.
I feel these last moments in the series were perfect and gave closure in a more profound way. He seemed to grow in these few scenes and you knew that he'd be ok going forward. This is one character that didn't need revisiting imo.
I will say Daid was very lucky he was invited since he no longer worked at The Firm. Alot of folks wouldn't have done that. Also Fans were upset that they saw Tim & Kiss on the back of The Office Special DVD. I still remember freaking out when I saw Dawn with a Wedding Ring and A Baby.
This defines the difference between UK and US. We're naturally self-depriving. We're not blind, we don't expect anything, we don't assume it, we earn it. In even in this scenario nothing is perfect. But it's real. That's what is important with comedy in the UK. In the US everything is inspirational how you can be on top regardless. Nothing wrong with that, it's fantastic. In the UK though, it's about the small things that mean so much. This is what ironically makes it perfect. 2 series and 2 Christmas specials. Quality, not quantity.
Reading through these comments, I don't understand why people are using the fact that the US version ran for 9 series means it was more successful, or better. The reason US shows run for longer is because it's usually the network that owns them, pressures them into squeezing every bit of life out until they no longer have adequate viewing figures. Whereas in the UK some of the most successful sitcoms will only run for 2 or 3 series because the producers have more control and with the beauty of the BBC the network isn't as desperate for viewing figures for advertising purposes, instead they're primarily looking for positive feedback alongside other metrics.
For example; The Office, Gavin & Stacey, Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, The Young Ones, The Royale Family.
Quality, not quantity.
