    I'm only four episodes in, but it, like most of Gervais' work, is brilliant. You really should check this out.

    I keep delaying myself from watching. I will probably start it sometime this week.

    Can't agree - This stiiinks IMHO. Maudlin and boring.

    I thought I read that it got pretty good reviews.

    I started watching it. I don't not like it, but it isn't as good as the original office or extras.

    I'm only 3 episodes in though, and it isn't bad, just not amazing.

    I will finish it I am sure, and probably isn't fair to compare anything to the original Office.

    I've heard nothing about this show. Talk about horrible promotion.

    I don't like that he does a character. He is better as himself.

    I barely made it through the first episode. I will not be going back to it.

    This was exactly how I felt when I checked it out a few years ago. I found Derek cringe inducing.
