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 »
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 »

Oh, I'm engaged to Pam.
I thought you were gay?
Then why would you want to set me up with your daughter?
I don't know.

I watched the British version of The Office and became a fan - as almost everyone. So I decided to see if the American version was as good as the original. A doubt feeling emerged at the first episode, since I still was with the original - and awesome - characters in mind. They were not just funny, but peculiar, inimitable. I didn't let this impression ruin my experience, though. Gladly. The American version is obviously inspired in the British version, but they are not the same. Simple like this. The American characters are not mere counterparts of David, Tim, Gareth, Dawn... They are hole new versions of the kind of people we can easily find in any office. And equally inspired versions of these workers. Since I've lost several episodes when they aired for the first time, I'm now at the third season, and I will surely see all the episodes through the end. More than one time...
