'The Office' finally reveals documentary crew


As The Office finally winds down at NBC (two years too late in my opinion), it is attempting to fill in some holes and provide answers to questions that have long plagued viewers. 

In last night episode, one of the biggest mysteries left unsolved began to come together. Often times it seems that the film crew making a "mockumentary" about Dunder-Mifflin Paper Company are forgotten about.

But, for the first time, we caught a glimpse at the crew last night.

Jim and Pam got into an argument over his absence from Cici's ballet recital. As Pam broke down in tears, Brian, a boom mic pole operator, appeared to console her. Chris Diamantopoulos, a Canadian actor best known for playing Moe Howard in last years' Three Stooges movie, is playing Brian.

Brian turned towards the cameras and asked they be turned off for Pam's sake, showing that the two have developed some sort of friendship over the years. I would assume so - they have been filming this thing for almost a decade!

This is the first time the series has really broken the fourth wall (that I can recall). As the season wraps up, expectations are that the filming crew will come more into play.

I can’t believe that the only episode I missed of this season revealed one of the biggest mysteries of the entire series! I’m definitely kicking myself for not watching, but I was just so buried under a pile of papers in my office at DISH that evening that I completely forgot about The Office. At least it’s not too late for me to check it out! Even though this episode totally slipped my mind, I still have a recording of it waiting for me at home thanks to my DISH Hopper DVR’s PrimeTime Anytime. Since this feature automatically records The Office and everything else on the four major networks during primetime hours, I never have to worry about missing a beat on all my favorite show. It definitely comes in handy when something big like this happens on one of the episodes!
