Yeah it's not to everyone's tastes - Fawlty Towers is obviously a classic, but it's funny in a different way to The Office. The Office is great because anyone that has been in that sort of office environment and dealt with those sort of people it rings true in a very uncomfortable way - kinda like Dilbert to the power of 100. It isn't laugh-out-loud-at-a-man-hitting-a-car-with-a-tree (which is great, don't get me wrong) but it's real squirm in your seat at just how embarrassing it is. But in a great and extremely funny way. Horses for courses, as they say.
