The Office (2005-Present) – TV Review

0000039609_20070509125807Plot: A remake of the hit 2001 BBC TV series The Office (2001), this is a mockumentary that documents the exploits of a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Made up of head chief Michael Scott, a harmlessly deluded and ignorantly insensitive boss who cares about the welfare of his employees while trying to put his own spin on company policy. With an office including the likes of various peers who have their own hangups, The Office (2005) takes a look at the lives of its co-workers: bored but talented salesman Jim, his mildly sociopathic, butt kissing enemy Dwight, mildly righteous receptionist Pam, and indifferent temp Ryan.

one-schrute-buckI was officially obsessed with the originally British version of this show in England – I thought it was brilliant (until I saw Extras and it was even better).  I love Ricky Gervais.  I remember seeing the American one preview night with Mark when we first started dating, however, it was an exact copy.  It didn’t work.

Needless to say, it has done very well, so I decided to watch it.  I skipped the first season because I had seen some of it and it was crap.  However, starting with the second season, it was awesome!  It really found its feet, the actors grew into the characters, and it became its own!  It’s not like the UK version, but its definitely worth watching.

I just love Jim and Pam…so adorable!

Dwight is amazing…

I recommend this show for anyone into this type of humor (mockumentary, awkward pauses etc)… I give the series thus far 4/5 stars.
