Too much like 'The Office'
12 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Simpsons has managed to stay consistently funny for eighteen years, and, though there have been other episodes that have been weaker than others, this is the only one that has managed to hit this low standard.

If I wanted to watch 'The Office' I would have. Gervais' character was basically the same irritating idiot he plays in 'The Office'. The only humorous parts of the episode were the ones that had the regular Simpsons brand of humour, unfortunately, there were very few. The parts with Gervais were poorly acted and were basically just him being him; which isn't funny.

I'm just glad this is the only episode Gervais had influence in.
