Ricky Gervais on ‘The Office’ 10-year anniversary

Ricky Gervais reflects on the 10-year anniversary of his original version of ‘The Office’:

David Brent doesn’t represent evil, or nastiness or even ignorance. He’s just a little out of place. Out of time. His worst crime is that he confused respect with popularity. He wanted both but concentrated on the wrong one. He didn’t really know what people wanted of him. He shouldn’t really have worried about that at all. He just tried a little too hard.
