The series starts by introducing the office's workers via a tour given by the branch manager Michael Scott for both the camera crew and a first-day temp Ryan Howard. News spreads throughout the office that Dunder Mifflin's corporate headquarters is planning to downsize an entire branch, leading to general anxiety, but Michael chooses to deny or downplay the realities of the situation in order to maintain employee morale.

Corporate is later forced to merge the Stamford branch and staff into the Scranton branch. Included in the transfer to Scranton are Karen Filippelliwith whom Jim has developed a relationship, and the anger-prone Andy Bernard.
The rest of the Stamford branch are irrelevant considering they all quit within the first few episodes of them being there. Pam is newly single after calling off her marriage and relationship to Roy prior to the merger, and Jim's unresolved feelings for her and his new relationship with Karen lead to shifting tensions amongst the three.
Meanwhile, Michael and Jan's relationship escalates which causes them both to behave erratically on the job.
On the other hand, Dwight and Angela continue their steamy secret relationship. In the season's finaleJim, Karen, and Michael interview for a corporate position that turns out to be Jan's, who is fired that day for poor performance.

Karen has left the Scranton branch after her breakup with Jim and becomes regional manager at the Utica branch.

Ryan, in his new corporate life in New York City, attempts to modernize Dunder Mifflin with a new website for online sales; he also learns that his boss, David Wallacefavors Jim, and thus Ryan attempts to sabotage Jim's career.
Ryan is soon arrested and fired for misleading the shareholders and committing fraud related to the website's sales numbers.

Pam ultimately returns from New York to Scranton, where Jim has bought his parents' house for the two of them.
Having avoided jail and only been sentenced to community service, Ryan dyes his hair and starts working for a bowling alley.

TRGS might just be one of the best comedy series ever, or at the very least the best animated series of all times.
The Ricky Gervais Show
Hugely original, totally unpredictable except the "Monkey News", but that's the whole pointand refreshingly pointless. Some people make the inane case for the original podcasts being better than their animated version because "one is left to one's own imagination".
That is a ludicrous argument, the kind of idealistic babble that you might have heard from your apathetic English professor at school. Using that "logic", every good movie or TV show should be only heard, not seen, so that the viewer's experience doesn't get "impinged" by someone else's subjective visual imprint of the events. Using this "logic", perhaps famous paintings should be described but never seen, so that the art-lovers "get to use their own imagination instead of someone else's".
There's always someone to split hairs and nit-pick, even when an idea is totally flawless. HBO's animation is imaginative, funny, colourful, spot-on brilliant, adding a whole new dimension of fun to the "bare bones" of the original broadcasts. The animators added a plethora of great new visual gags to the already existing top-notch material — so it mystifies me that anyone could possibly have a bone to pick with that.
The drawing style is simple yet effective; the decision to go for a cheerful look as opposed to a grotesque i. Is Karl a moron? I've already largely covered that in my "An Idiot Abroad" comment.
Suffice it to say that Karl is weird rather than unintelligent, certainly an original thinker in the broad sense of the term. Ricky calls him a "strange little creature", and that is a far more appropriate description of the round-headed fella than the somewhat crass "buffoon" label he gets in the opening credits.
Pilkington is a very likable person, mellow and non-aggressive in his intentions except when it comes to kicking a duck's buttliving in his own little world which he luckily recounts in his ridiculous diaryand not every analysis he makes is daft. He jumps to conclusions, he tends to believe whatever suits him rather than what makes sensehis general knowledge is poor but so is that of much of the massesand his wishful thinking gets the better of him in most cases which makes him no different than most people, actually.
That particular affliction - wishful thinking — is something Ricky Gervais exhibits too. Ricky refers to himself as a "liberal"; left-wingers base their philosophies on wishful thinking, fearing to face a science-based politically-incorrect ugly reality that doesn't often go hand-in-hand with their idealistic notions of an eventual "perfect world" that they so desperately want to believe in.
In an ideal world, unguided by commercial restraints, this show would be called "The Karl Pilkington Show"; in fact, Gervais had said something to this effect. After all, Gervais isn't just some random run-of-the-mill comedian who lucked out, i. Watch "Fame", "Animals", or "Out of England", and you can't go wrong.
