My new obsession - The Office

I am so obsessed with 'The Office' (American version). I watched season 1 and 2 ages ago and really liked it but season 3 never seemed to come on tv in the UK so I sort of forgot about it.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to buy Martin the DVD of 'The Wire' and in HMV they have season 3 of The Office for £15 so I thought lets get it for me - I watched all 23 episodes in 2 days and then ordered season 4 from America the next day lol. Season 4 came Monday and I've now watched all that too and can't wait for season 5 to come out on DVD so I can see what happens next.

It is just so funny!!! My fav character is Dwight and Jim and Pam are just so cute. Also how yummy is John Krasinski!!!
