The Office (Season 1) (2005)

A fantastic debut for NBC’s American adaptation of the British Ricky Gervais classic sitcom, this first season is only six episodes long, but each episode quickly and masterfully establishes dynamics and personalities. It makes for a smooth ride from beginning to end, with sharp writing and hilarious acting reaching heights early and consistently. None of the show’s success would be possible without Steve Carell’s remarkable, already-classic performance as Michael Scott, around whom all other characters and situations orbit.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
