Synopsis


The American TV version of the award-winning British sitcom The Office opens by establishing its faux documentary format, as Michael Scott (Steve Carell), regional manager of a branch office of Dunder-Mifflin Paper, jumps through hoops to convince the filmmakers that he presides over a happy, well-running ship. This is but one of Michael's many pathetic self-delusions: he also thinks he's the epitome of "cool," he's convinced that everything he says is a laugh riot, and even worse, he actually labors under the misapprehension that he is qualified for his job. Meanwhile, Dunder Mifflin's employees inadvertently but efficiently put the lie to Michael's self-serving prevarications: sales rep Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) continually cooks up methods to undermine his hated cube-mate, the obnoxious know-it-all Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson); receptionist Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) continually deals with Michael's insensitivities and flubs; and office temp Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) acts mostly as an observer of the insanity around him. Some of the episodes in The Office's six-episode trial run carried over general plot ideas from the earlier British series, particularly the threat of wholesale downsizing that weaves through the various plots and subplots; however, only the pilot was a direct adaptation of one of the U.K. version's episodes.

    I have watched this show randomly on television whenever there wasn't anything on. I didn't like it much. However, when my husband purchased the seasons consecutively, I couldn't get enough. You will find yourself getting involved with the characters, all the while laughing at all the pranks played on Dwight, one of the biggest nerds you'll ever fall in love with. Jim is the ultimate cool guy who is crushing on the receptionist, Pam, who is engaged to Roy who works in the warehouse. And let's not forget Michael Scott, the self-proclaimed "World's Best Boss" whose very open non-gay attraction to Ryan the Temp will leave you on the floor laughing. His constant need to be everyone's friend in the office causes quite a bit of conflict between him and the Corporate Office. Let's not forget the fact that he tries to bring humor to the office by having "Fun-raisers" and many, many birthday parties. This purchase, whether bought here or somewhere else (wherever the price may be lower) is worth it. I've been recommending the show to everyone!

    This is the funniest season of the Office, especially if you've never watched it before. There are even a few extras, but honestly, at this price, the six episodes you get are more than worth it. You get introduced to Michael, Jim, Dwight, Pam, and the whole Dunder-Mifflin crew in Scranton. It's also one of the first American shows that got popular in the mockumentary format. If you're a fan of comedy, this is a great show to pick up if you haven't seen it - if you're already an Office fan, then this is a must-buy for the great re-watch value! If you do end up enjoying this, I'd highly recommend season 2 as well. Enjoy!

    I'd heard of the Office but didn't start watching until about a month ago. The show is currently in its 4th season but was sooo hilarious I purchased season 1-3 as part of my husbands b-day celebration. It's only been 2 weeks but we're already in the middle of the third. Season 1 is my husband's personal favorite. It's all about crazy co-workers and office pranks. Seasons 2 and 3 get more into emotional stuff though laughs still abound. I love it because I've been working in different offices for years and you can see all the personalities represented. I wonder if we all think we're the only sane ones (Pam and Jim).

    One of the best shows on TV

    This has got to be one of the funniest shows ever to hit TV. I never laugh as much at any other program than I do over "The Office". Even comparing it to the original British version, this show is the tops. One episode after the other - it just gets funnier and funnier. My favorite episode is where Michael burns his foot on a George Formen Grill (which he keeps on his bed so he can have fresh bacon in the morning) and Dwight gets a concussion going to get him. If you've worked in an office - you will recognize your coworkers (in the extreme) and quite possibly even yourself in each of these characters.

    Top Ten DVD

    This DVD is so sweet. The office is probably the funniest comedy series on TV, and there really is no reason not to buy this product. Some audiences, especially younger kids may not fully appreciate some of the humor. Its a bit more dry and less traditional humor. I think its hysterical. You will really love the way the series portrays "a day at the office"...they take it to the extremes and its soooooo funny. You will fall in love with the characters in no time, and will find yourself talking about funny scenes for years to come. Did i say its great? cuz it is great!

    Love the show! This pilot season is very entertaining and set the stage for Parks and Rec and other shows in a documentary style. Now, when I received this in the mail the case was broken and the label party ripped. I was very unimpressed, especially since this was Best Buy shipping it to me. I've never experienced this kind of poor quality with their shipping before. I only paid around $5 for it, so I never contacted Best Buy about it. I just found another case I have and taped the label.

    This sitcom brought me back to watching prime time TV. Each character is unique and hilarious in their own way. I love that the show even includes some elements of their personalities that might make feel sorry for the characters. The actors are great; they make each character seem so real. The facial expressions are PRICELESS. And I love how now all the jokes are obvious. Overall, a great show. I have all 5 seasons so far and I plan on getting season 6.

    Hilarious TV Show

    This season seems more a test run... that when wonderfully correct! Some of the scenes are to die for and will leave you laughing extremely hard. You will be able to watch this over and over again. If you have seen the british version, I am told that many of the plots are similar to episodes on this version... but I personally enjoy the americanized version very much as it relates more to home. I highly recommend this TV season b/c of how watchable it is over and over again!
