Storyline

A mediocre paper company in the hands of Scranton, PA branch manager Michael Scott. This mockumentary follows the everyday lives of the manager and the employees he "manages." The crew follows the employees around 24/7 and captures their quite humerous and bizarre encounters as they will do what it takes to keep the company thriving. Written by john_regrut

Goofs

Although everybody who works at Dundler-Mifflin is used to the crew of cameramen and boom mic operators, few people outside of the office would be. Yet, most people act unaware of their presence, whether they are walking into the office, or if the camera crew follows members of the office somewhere, such as into a crowded restaurant, school or other offices. Most people's natural reaction would be to look directly at the camera or what is being filmed. See more »

Quotes

[after a sexual harassment seminar]
Michael Scott: Stanley, how about that hot picture you have by your desk? Centerfold in the Catholic school girl's outfit? I mean, it is hot, it is sexy, and it turns him on. And I will admit, the best part of my morning is staring at it. But what, are we gonna just take it away?
Stanley Hudson: That is my daughter, she goes to Catholic girl's school. I'm taking it down right now.

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"!
