This season was stupid. It wasn't that funny and it was pretty slow. I was usually doing something else while watching it.

BUT I got season two because my friend likes it so much and I thought I should give it a try and I LOVED IT. So my advice is power through season one (or read a summary on Amazon or something) and start season two because it is really good.

A brilliant little comedy show about a naive but ambitious employee with political aspirations at a stagnating bureaucratic office whose do-nothing co-workers don't seem to understand her. It's understated and its cast perform well together. The first season is very brief and barely gets going, but it's intriguing enough to anticipate the second season. Fingers crossed that it's as good as the first!

One of the all time best comedies on TV. No laugh track or annoying music, just good comedy, great writing and acting. Amy is brilliant !!

So dull we only made it through the first two episodes. Mostly just stupid, rather than funny.

This is pretty much just a recast The Office in a different setting. So, even though that is kind of lame, I was entertained and think it is funny. I am interested to see where the series goes from here, but I couldn't help but laugh throughout. I don't like the characters as well as the office, but maybe they will grow on me. Smartly written and well acted.

I didn't get involved in watching this show on TV until this season, when I caught an episode at a friends house but Amy is hilarious, a show truly worth watching from the beginning. Rob Lowe's character is consistant in causing laughter and all supporting cast is great.
