Both Seasons 1 & 2 of the UK-version of The Office are currently available on Prime Video.

The US version of The Office mimicked this UK version. Some scenes were shot-for-shot. The difference is that the US version went deeper, softening the situations and making you care more about the characters over many more seasons.

If you loved Jim and Pam’s relationship, you might enjoy watching Tim (played by the lovable and popular Martin Freeman) and Dawn (played by Lucy Davis who was Mariah in the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice). Just be aware, that the relationship takes a slightly different spin.

If you loved Michael Scott, you might enjoy David Brent (played by the hilarious master of uncomfortable moments… Ricky Gervais). Gareth is the UK’s version of Dwight Schrute, played by Mackenzie Crook from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

It if fun to compare the two. The US version was designed to appeal more to the American audience. Purists may enjoy seeing the origin series.
