5 September 2006 | by budman85See all my reviews

Anyone who has ever worked in an office environment will enjoy it.

When I began watching the series, I wasn't too sure how it would be. I was expecting slapstick, or something slow.. it's based in Toronto.. so I wasn't expecting it to be too funny. I was pleasantly surprised. The cast works, the stories are quick and funny.

If you've seen other shows, like The Office (BBC or NBC), or Office Space, those were kind of dry compared to the humor in this show. I felt right at home. Like I want to work there. :) There is only one rule in a fire, save the Beer! My wife, who chuckles from time to time, had a few bursts of laughter during this show. She likes it because it's not slapstick, its humor.

It's one I look forward to picking up on DVD. I look forward to watching more episodes.
