Why would it say All episodes from 2016 available now " but it doesn’t have them. It starts at 2 then 3 then skips to 6?

According to The Sunday Telegraph’s Annette Sharp, an Australian version of The Office is set to begin filming in Sydney in the coming months. The lead role will be played by a female comedian, but the producers have ruled out the likes of Magda Szubanski, Celia Pacquola, Judith Lucy and Kitty Flanagan, and are looking across the Tasman.
The Office will be made by Bunya Productions for Amazon Prime.
Can’t they come up with a new idea rather than rehash a show that’s already been made twice?
Interested to see how this pans out. Expectations are extremely low but hopes are high.
either way, it’ll be hard to meet the standards of the US Office

It worked, once they stopped trying to be like the UK version. The first season was painful
