Episode 79: The Office Christmas Special

The office Christmas party is such a cliche at this point that every workplace comedy inevitably has to make that episode. I mean, there’s even a whole movie built around the idea. (We reviewed it once; it’s terrible.)

This week, the guys take a look at the Christmas special from the original UK version of The Office. Is David Brent a sympathetic figure? How easy is it to separate the Brent persona from Ricky Gervais himself? Does this special undermine the tone of the rest of the series? These are the questions we wrestle with in this episode. Come join us!
