Eh yeah a tremendous show. I don't think it touched the genius of the office but it's darn good nonetheless.

That scene is great, haha, Andy's facial expression, or more appropriately, 'shocked' lack of, facial expressions.
I'm a fan of Gervais in general, I've seen a decent bit of everything he's done, I got into him earlier this year, I'd heard and seen bits about his stuff, but I started with 'An Idiot Abroad' another good show, although 95% Karl Pilkington, it's obviously one of Gervais' projects.
I just got 'The Office' (UK) organised to watch recently, I'm going to start it shortly, being a fan I've heard a lot about it. I finished Extras yesterday, including the final ever episode, which was the special, quite emotional in parts too, his speech and going back and forth with Maggie in Big Brothers is nice.
Looking forward to watching 'The Office' and seeing what I think between his two best known shows., that and Extras.
And pretty much all the scenes with Greig (the other 'extra' that becomes successful, nearer the end) are good, haha, really enjoyed it.
