Odd, Uncomfortable, and Funny
30 June 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

The pilot outing of the American version of The Office was odd throughout, uncomfortable at times, and (when it worked) very very funny. Even with the uneven and unusual cast of characters, there were more than a few moments when the viewer can't help but recognize people they have worked with or situations that happen in offices every day - and the uncomfortably funny situation seems to be the point of The Office. Steve Carrell is the obvious comedic star, but the supporting cast looks to be a tremendous fount of potential entertainment. Was it too odd or uncomfortable to keep someone from watching? Nope - in fact, I can't wait to see what they do next.
