The Office (Season 2) (2005)

A terrific home-run of a second season, this first full season of NBC’s American adaptation of the BBC original series (following a limited first season) does something incredible: It takes the character interactions and situations established in the first season and magnifies them, drawing inspiration from what came first and wringing a variety of genuinely funny scenes that are consistent from one episode to the next. None of this would matter if the cast wasn’t up to the challenge, but luckily the show is staffed with effective character actors and one hell of a lead in Steve Carell, who is the show’s undisputed Most Valuable Player.
