A remake of the hit 2001 BBC TV series The Office (2001), this is a mockumentary that documents the exploits of a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Made up of head chief Michael Scott, a harmlessly deluded and ignorantly insensitive boss who cares about the welfare of his employees while trying to put his own spin on company policy. With an office including the likes of various peers who have their own hangups, The Office (2005) takes a look at the lives of its co-workers: bored but talented salesman Jim, his mildly sociopathic, butt kissing enemy Dwight, mildly righteous receptionist Pam, and indifferent temp Ryan.

Did You Know?


On May 4, 2013, a wrap party for the series was held at PNC Baseball Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in anticipation of the series' conclusion. The event was sold-out and hosted most of the show's cast and crew. After most of the Season 9 regulars were introduced and seated in their chairs near home plate (with the notable exceptions of Ed Helms and Angela Kinsey who were unable to attend), the music playing over the intercom suddenly stopped and the announcer stated, "Wait...there's one more chair here." After several moments of commotion from the audience and the cast, the announcer proclaimed, "Please welcome...Michael Scott!" Steve Carell, who had left the show two years prior and whose attendance had not even been announced to the cast, then emerged from the dugout, receiving an overwhelming standing ovation from the crowd and shocked reactions from the rest of the cast. A few minutes later during an interview session conducted by Andy Buckley , who played CFO David Wallace for most of the series, one of the cast members stated that Carell had been lingering in the dugout disguised with a wig, and was believed to be merely a PNC staff member by the cast and crew.

11 May 2011 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I'm from Scotland and loved the British "Office". But I adore the American version! Steve Carell leads a great cast and I'm not surprised it has lasted so long. I'm working my way through Series 3 and have series 4 and 5 to look forward to. It's amazing how much the writers can get into 20 minutes. I like it when there is a double episode. I too am so glad there is no laughter track (which has stopped me watching quite a few comedy shows). I have noticed in this third series that the camera can be very annoying when it whizzes from character to character - far too quickly. Completely unnecessary. Steve's "Michael" conveys so much about the character - he's full of himself but so vulnerable and anxious for friends. Rainn Wilson's "Dwight" is just brilliant. And I love the company name - "Dunder Mifflin"!
