One of My Favorite Sitcoms

I always liked to watch series, sitcoms and movies. But today I want to talk specifically about one sitcom: The Office.

This show really stands out, because it has a completely different sense of humor when we compared to others sitcoms.

Also, the characters can talk with us (the audience) looking directly at the camera, because in the context of the show they are being film for a documentary.

However, the show owes its success to the character Michael Gary Scott, played by Steve Carell, because, most of the time, he steals the spotlight.

As I said, I enjoy watch many show, today I wanted to talk about especially of The Office, but

I can't help mentioning that my favorite show of the all time still is FRIENDS.

I have always liked to watch TV series, sitcoms, (comma recommended) and movies. But today, (comma needed) I want to talk specifically about one sitcom: The Office.

This show really stands out, because, (comma needed) it has a completely different sense of humor when we compared to others sitcoms.

Also, the characters can talk with to (Although, in practice, many native speakers use “talk to” and “talk with” interchangeably, some people claim that talk to should be used when it's only one person speaking, and talk with should be used when it's more of a two-sided discussion.) us (the audience) while/by looking directly at the camera, because, (comma needed) in the context of the show, (comma needed) they are being filmed for a documentary.

However, the show owes its success to the character Michael Gary Scott, played by Steve Carell, because, most of the time, he steals the spotlight.

As I said, I enjoy watching many shows, however, today I wanted to talk specifically about especially of The Office, but, (comma needed) I can't cannot help mentioning that my favorite show of the all times still is still FRIENDS.

Great effort! You are already making a lot of progress with your writing skills in English yes

I really like The Office too. I believe the one you are referring to is the American one, which I have not seen (but am planning to). I would also advise you to watch the British one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Office_(British_TV_series)

I am also a fan of FRIENDS. Who is your favourite character?

In addition to Aliakbar's comments, I just have the following points to add

1. when we compared to others sitcoms. - when compared/when we compare it  to other sitcoms.

2. my favorite show of the all time - my favourite show of all time

You should definitely watch the British version!  Ricky Gervais is one of my favourite comedians!

I'm the same - I love how all the characters interact with each other.
