I watched some of Ricky Gervais lst night and was struck once again by the fact that even though I really dug The Office, I find him intensely dislikable and unfunny as a 'comedian'. A friend of mine said this earlier...

QUOTE
People marvel at how accurately and perceptively he managed to portray the loathsome Brent... let's just describe it as method acting and move on.

... and I tend to agree.

But what do you think? Was The Office, like Phoenix Nights, unfairly attributed to the 'genius' of one man alone, or would you like to have Ricky's babies?
