Where do you go after the office?
19 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

... if you're Martin Freeman, to a hardware shop. The subtle genius of "The Office", the programme for which Freeman is best known, is in a different league to "Hardware", which is a traditional sitcom with canned laughter, contrived "comedy" situations, etc.

However, "Hardware" isn't too bad - it has a better cast than most sitcoms, some funny lines and at least tries to have some original storylines... unfortunately Freeman's character is another cynical, embittered employee (as in "The Office") - it would be nice to see him do something a bit different as he is probably a very talented guy.
