The Office (US)

The Office (US)


A mockumentary about the modern workplace, The Office explores the everyday lives of the people who run the Scranton branch of the Dunder Mifflin paper supply company. As they struggle to compete with big chain stores and modern technology, the Dunder Mifflin staff is in denial about everything - from the possibility of downsizing to their own insignificance. Still, the Scranton branch has enough heart and small-town charm to stay in business, at least for today.

Proudly leading the team is Regional Manager Michael Scott: the pompous, awkward, clueless boss who has an inappropriate comment for every situation. He may be deluded into thinking he's the coolest dude in the office, but his enthusiasm is undeniable. His receptionist, Pam Beesly, is the repressed but friendly gal who spends her time either covering for Michael's ineptitude, or joking around with Jim Halpert, the quick-witted sales rep. The target of their humor is usually Dwight Schrute, the goofy and gullible sales rep who also serves as Michael's right-hand man. Working alongside them is Ryan Howard, the brilliant but immoral young business graduate who tries to bring Dunder Mifflin into the 21st century, despite Michael's attempts to do things the old-fashioned way.

The rest of the office staff is equally colorful and full of personality, and their every word and thought is captured on film by a documentary crew. Through everyday events and a series of short interviews, the brutal truth of the American workplace is revealed.

I love this show to death, mainly because each of the characters reminds me of someone at my own office. In every office there’s always the older guy who’s been there forever, yet no one knows exactly what he does; the mother-figure always bringing in baked goods; the uptight one who always looks angry at everything; the student temp; someone who’s always a little hung over from the night before; the quirky boss with odd motivational techniques; the secret inter-office romance that everyone knows about but acts oblivious to; and the Dwight. Every office has that one person with the off-beat comments, the constant sucking up, and the behavior that makes everyone’s life miserable. Read more

The Office Season 5 Episode 24 “Casual Friday” Review by Connie Norberg

Kevin Malone begins our hilarious episode with his “Kevins Famous Chili” as he walks into the building with his very big pot of homemade chili. With the elevators out of order, he is forced to walk the chili all the way to the office. Unfortunately, he doesn’t make it far before it spills onto the carpeted floor. So he looks around for something to scoop it up with and put back into the pot. Using 2 folders, he slops the now contaminated chili back into the pot, while falling directly into the spill; his suit is covered in chili. Read more

6x26: Whistleblower recap: The season finale of the Office starts with Michael Scott watching the video of himself on the internet telling that there is no problems with the Sabre printers catching fire to the press when, calling in a woman’s voice, Packer calls to mess with Michael about it. Michael makes it seem like the company marked him as their spokesman and tells the office staff that he is the 2nd most watched on the internet and was beat out by the teacher who was accused of being a pedophile. He has the office staff goes to the site and watch his video, but they are distracted when Angela tells that there is a baby otter video to watch on the same site. Back in his office, Michael is trying to be offended, but watching it is a different story and he enjoys the video as well... read more.

6x25: The Chump recap: In the opening scene before the credits, Toby is conducting a meeting telling the Office staff about the new Radon Test Kits and is attempting to get Michael’s attention by snapping his fingers. It is apparent that Michael is not paying attention. The scene clips with Michael finding the old Radon Test Kits around his office and throwing them away. Michael starts making farting noises to the words “Silent but deadly” and gets upset with Toby about his complaining about his natural behavior. He then says that if he was in a room with Bin Laden, Hitler and Toby, that he would shoot Toby twice. The other Office staff tells that his joke went too far and then he tells that he would kill Bin Laden and then Toby. Still unhappy, Michael then asks what they would do. Creed says to curve the bullet and the rest of the staff start finding out ways to kill all three at once. Dwight then says that you can kill all three with one bullet in the throat and then proceeds to use Phyllis and Andy as volunteers and demonstrates how it would happen to kill Hitler, Bin Laden and Toby... read more.
