Critics Consensus

The Office quickly distinguishes itself from its source material within the first few episodes, proving not all Hollywood remakes of overseas hits are destined to end in failure. (That's what she said.)

Audience Reviews for The Office: Season 1

  • Aug 26, 2021
    It's not the best season in The Office due to having only 6 episodes and having an almost completely different tone tan the other seasons but it still is funnier than most modern sitcoms and has the standout episode, Diversity Day.
  • Aug 04, 2021
    (all seasons) Season 1 followed the original very closely and thus felt slightly cramped. Soon though this remake found its own identity and at its peak (arguably seasons 2 to 6) managed to expand upon the original's cringe comedy, instill it with brilliant new ideas and characters, nail the emotional side of things and of course put together an ensemble cast for the ages, including an amazing Steve Carell. Still some things run their course and seasons 7 to 9, although still amusing, were far from essential.
  • May 30, 2021
    I'll start off by saying that both the acting and the soundtrack is very good. The show starts off slow, but it gets better over time.
  • May 20, 2021
    At first, I didn't buy it. But when you start to build some story behind the characters as the season unfolds, you are actually starting to like it.
  • Apr 20, 2021
    I usually don't love sitcoms, but this is just so good. Season 1 is ok, but I don't like the British style of it. I know that it was kind of a test with the same format as the UK version, but I liked the series better at its American style. This season was funny with iconic episodes, but the atmosphere of this office is not the one of Dunder Mifflin. An ok season.
  • Apr 08, 2021
    Definitely a rough start for the show, with many hidden gems that makes rewatching a joy
  • Mar 30, 2021
    Quite possibly the most overrated show, ever. Not funny at all to those of us who don't like "cringe" humor.
  • Mar 19, 2021
    The office's first season is very different from the rest of the show, but manages to be a ton of fun nonetheless.
  • Mar 03, 2021
    This season has great episodes that make me laugh a lot. The only bad thing that have this season is that the season have 6 episodes.
  • Mar 01, 2021
    Great but not as great as the other seasons
