Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Season 2 kicks off with The Dundies, Michael Scott's attempt at boosting office morale with an annual awards ceremony — which culminates with a hilarious karaoke competition. Throughout the year, the staff — Dwight, Pam, Jim, and temp Ryan — also deals with a sexual harassment seminar, an office fire, and office holiday traditions for Halloween and Christmas. No episode is complete without pompous commentary from boss-man Michael or completely inappropriate behavior from almost everyone in Dunder-Mifflin's Scranton branch. Basically, The Office is just like your life, only funnier.

Finally, primetime with smart and subtle humor. There's no laugh track and a lot of the show's funniest elements aren't obvious unless the viewer pays attention--a look on a character's face, or something sitting on a desk, or a background event--and the script is very smart. Rarely do the characters say anything that you wouldn't imagine a coworker of yours saying, and the writing doesn't assume the audience needs it to state the obvious, which is a breath of fresh air among sitcoms. Steve Carell does include those wacky elements, but often it's the others' reaction to his insanity that makes it hilarious. Great show!
I've never seen a successful port of a British comedy to American TV, but this is even better than the British version. Mike (Steve Carrel) is hilarious, but Dwight is where a large percentage of the laughs come in. The first season followed the British series a little too much, and held itself back, but the second season is pure laughs.
The Best Show Ever!
This collection of second season episodes is easily one of the funniest new shows on television. Steve Carell (Michael Scott) gives an amazing performance in each and every episode, each one filled with awkward silence humor in the vein of "A Mighty Wind", "Best In Show" and "This is Spinal Tap", the "mocumentary" style humor works well in every episode, with each role played to perfection. You'll love Dwight, Pam, Jim & all the other staff members, who play their parts with sometimes striking realism. Well written, and worth all of your time, each episode is sure to please. And make sure to buy the first season on DVD which comes complete with nearly an HOUR of deleted scenes. The show is broadcast on Thursday Nights now @ 9:30 directly after "My Name is Earl," and the previous night's episodes are available on Itunes every Wednesday usually in the afternoon.
