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 humorous and bizarre encounters as they will do what it takes to keep the company thriving.Written by
The first season was filmed in office space located just above a soundstage at the Chandler Valley Center Studios. The soundstage was often used to replicate the Dunder Mifflin warehouse, most notably in season one, episode five, "Basketball". For the second season, an exact replica of the original office was built on a soundstage right next to the warehouse set in the same building. See more »
The conference room has a table that is too big to easily move through a doorway, yet it comes and goes throughout the series, and is never seen when it's not in the conference room.
The show is filmed in an actual office, the conference room is a real conference room (not a set); so moving the table isn't a movie trick, thus, it only looks like it can't be moved. It's just never shown being moved. See more »
It's not common for an English persons to admit this but .......... Yes, this version is the absolute best. It is in another league to the original British program By miles!
Don't get me wrong I do like the uk office allot, but the US version just trumps it at every opportunity.
I'm not going to spoil anything for people who haven't seen it and if you're just looking for something light hearted and easy viewing this is definitely for you. Obviously you should watch it in order as intended but I always think that if you can just put a "random" episode of a program on and enjoy it then it passes the test.
There is something for everyone in this series. Plenty of different characters, multiple storylines, jokes you'll miss on first viewing and memorable quotes you'll no doubt be repeating like I do to my wife who has no idea what I'm babbling on about.
Let's be honest, the worlds horrible and everything is getting beyond a joke with the PC brigade, so for just 20 or so minutes, pop on an episode and crack a smile and remember that we used to find things funny
