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
Throughout the series, a bobblehead of MLB catcher Mike Lieberthal (in his Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barrons jersey) can be seen on Dwight's desk. Ironically, Lieberthal's middle name is Scott, making his full name "Michael Scott Lieberthal". 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 »
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
