Trivia

In the Kate Winslet episode, she states the reason she's doing a film about The Holocaust is because she'd been nominated for four Academy Awards and hadn't yet won, but doing a film of this nature would guarantee her an Oscar. Four years later, after five nominations in total, she finally won the Oscar for Best Leading Actress, for her Holocaust based drama The Reader (2008). See more »

Why do people insist on comparing this with The Office??????
29 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Almost every review I have read on here today contains the words "The Office." Why can people not offer their thoughts on the quality of this programme as a stand alone piece? Ricky Gervais plays a different guy in completely different surroundings. He is limited as an actor (by his own admission) which is why some people have commented that it feels like they are watching David Brent. Gervais does not have the range to bring a completely new character to the screen and in effect plays variations of himself. It has a brand new cast supplemented by guest stars parodying themselves. Hats off to Ross Kemp last night, although Vinnie Jones stunk up the place a bit during his scene. This is a great concept which has been well written (so far) and I'm sure will grow into a firm favourite with regular viewers. Please give this a chance, it could be another classic.
