As a big fan of The Office (BBC), I watched this show and was not disappointed at all. Ricky Gervais cements himself as one of the great comedians of this era with this fantastic show. The guest stars play twisted versions of themselves, and it is often surprising and somewhat disturbing in the absolute best possible way. The episodes with Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, and David Bowie stand out as favorites for me. The series finale is a good wrap-up, it is just sad to see such great shows stop after only 12 episodes and a special (just like the BBC Office), but everything good has to end, and it's better than going on for way too long (like Seinfeld did for the last season, and How I Met Your Mother is doing right now).
