Series 3, episode 2 blew me away. I am used to 1 in 3 jokes making me laugh (or less). Usually, I mostly enjoy the background posters and signs and touches like the back of heads on the back of the work board. But, this episode hit me again and again. It was as though someone said there won't be another series and the writes said 'F*ck it! Let's do all the jokes." And when I thought it was over, they ran a 'next time on...'. And that was all funny, too.

I think Robert Webb is funny. He is central to the show but it is still an ensemble piece. I don't laugh out loud often. But, there is a lot of familiar workplace material. I also like seeing how characters change as episodes reveal more about them. For example, in the pilot, Barry is nervous about a promotion interview. I felt for him. By episode 4, I've learned he is an incredible screw-up and, by the Christmas episode, he's completed an entire crossword without having a single correct answer. I can't think of many shows that so effortlessly establish and then change characters with a single conversation.
