I was looking to purchase Season 1 on DVD and a friend of mine told me it was only six episodes long. Is that true? i did not start watching until season 2. Is it worth it to get season 1 if it IS only 6 episodes long?

According to a review here: The Office Season 1 (The W at Amazon) it is only 6 episodes long, but there are deleted scenes. If you are a completist or enjoy the series you may want to get it for under $20 - that's still over 2 hours of comedy for the price of a movie.

You might also find The BBC version (Seasons 1 & 2 Plus a special) (The W at Amazon) for $45 a pretty good deal while you are there

I was waiting for the 2nd season to come out to see if they were going to combine them into one (like they ended up doing with Seinfeld).

I'll add that I bought it and think it's easily worth right around three bucks an episode, especially to get in widescreen and ESPECIALLY for the deleted scenes.

Do you get more Kevin reaction shots with the widescreen? Because that would totally sell me on it.

yes, get it. While it's not as good as season 2, it's well worth your money

It's not quite as good (because there's no payoffs), but it lays a LOT of groundwork.

It's not as good moreso because they were reliant on the original series (the first episode is kinda awful, aping the UK's first episode) and hadn't found their voice yet. But it's worth it for the basketball episode and the deleted scenes alone.


*Edited for double usage of the word "moreso", thus making me cringe.

Extras aren't included in the announcement, but according to the cast blog entries we'll see Deleted Scenes, Commentary Tracks, Webisodes (which begin showing at NBC.com on July 13th), Olympic promos, PSAs, and behind-the-scenes footage shot by Jenna Fischer (Pam).


Yeah! Chock full of good stuff.

That doesn't sound right. Weren't there 24 episodes, each at about 22 minutes? Shouldn't that be closer to 9 hours, or were there more ads than I remember? (Not counting the Chili's placement...)

Edit: Nevermind. There were 22 episodes, which at 21-22 minutes per episode should make 8 hours once you count the extended finale. That still seems short though.

Hopefully the Season 2 release is a week or so ahead of the start of Season 3 so I can enjoy it without being rushed.

Best part of season one was the end of the last episode, and the lingering look from Pam as she and Roy drove off. I loved that.

So much was said, with so little.

That look really sets up Season 2 well. Like I said, well worth the cost and I look ofrward to adding Season 2 to my collection.
