Editor's Note
Based on the popular British comedy of the same name, THE OFFICE takes place in and around the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Using the same mockumentary style as the original, the series succeeds in capturing the quiet desperation of the poor souls working in this socially stifling environment under the direction of delusional boss, regional manager Michael Scott. Comic actor Steve Carell beautifully inhabits the role, playing a man so eager to be liked, he completely alienates people with one stupid antic after another. Blindly believing himself beloved by his employees for his laid-back nature, Michael fails to see that, with the exception of nerdy and bizarre Dwight (Rainn Wilson), he is resented and despised by all. Meanwhile, Jim woos engaged receptionist Pam, while both navigate the office politics and "humor" of boss Scott. Carell perfectly walks the line between despicable and pathetic, enlisting his audience's sympathies just moments before doing or saying something horribly inappropriate. THE OFFICE may be a remake, but it has charms of its very own.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"Carell is spot-on...and the show has succeeded in keeping the tone, pacing, and overall awkwardness of the original." 08/19/2005 p.126

Rolling Stone
"[A] bitingly funny, not wholly unrealistic depiction of workplace idiocy." 09/08/2004 120

San Francisco Chronicle 9 of 10
The American version of The Office is not only funny, it creatively pays homage to the original (the first episode is the British version nearly verbatim) and then, in subsequent episodes, comes up with completely separate scripts that define the NBC edition as unique and audaciously clever in its own right. - Tim Goodman

Reel.com 9 of 10
Seinfeld was touted as "a show about nothing," but the TV situation comedy that actually fulfills that promise is the excellent American version of The Office, with episodes built around truly mundane office scenarios...The premise is meant to be as dull as possible: a paper distribution company populated by resigned, worn-down long-term employees and I'm-outta-here short-timers...It's a blank slate, in other words, in which the actors can work their characters, and this great cast knows just what to do...Ricky Gervais, who conceived and starred in the original BBC version of The Office, was so funny in the British version that fans of that series were naturally skeptical about the effort to bring the project across the pond with an all-American cast. But the NBC version works very well, in large part because of Carrel, who is not imitating Gervais' character, but doing something all his own. - Ken Dubois
