The Office - Complete Series Review

I know a lot of people that started watching The Office and failed to get past season 1, most of which were recommended by me. The script incorporates humor that’s hidden in layers and a bit indecipherable.

You need to pay attention to crack every character’s thought process and delivery. This is not something you can watch while being distracted by your cell phone or working on the side (at least for the first time).

Adapted from the British version of The Office, this series is fairly more popular and acclaimed. As you guessed, The Office is based on the daily whereabouts of employees in an office setting, which is the sales department for Dunder Mifflin, a company that sells paper.

The series revolves around a group of employees - Micheal Scott (Regional Manager), Dwight Schrute (Sales rep or “Assistant to the Regional Manager” as he claims), Jim Halpert (Sales rep), and Pam Beesly (the Receptionist). Angela, Oscar, Kevin, Kelly, Creed, Ryan, Meredith, Toby, Stanely, and Phyllis are other supporting characters who work in the office and are a part of the day-to-day shenanigans.

The plot mainly revolves around Micheal Scott being a goofy boss, Dwight trying to please Michael and being the second person in command, Jim playing pranks on Dwight (which form the best cold opens), and the intimate friendship between Jim and Pam.

The series is a ‘mockumentary’ that is shot by a group of cameramen where the characters look in the camera to express the gravity of real-time situations.

The more I watched The Office, the more I got to realize the significance of each dialogue. If I decide to rewatch the entire series (which I probably would), I am certain to pick a few more nuances that were hard to decode in the first place.

So if you are looking for a humorous TV series recommendation, The Office won’t fail to give you some occasional chuckles. And oh, be prepared for “that’s what she said” jokes.
