Show Summary

Based on the popular British series of the same name, this faster-paced American version follows the daily interactions of a group of idiosyncratic office employees at paper company Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch via a documentary film crew's cameras. Regional manager Michael (Steve Carell) thinks he's the coolest, funniest, best boss ever - which, of course, makes him the uncoolest, most obnoxious and annoying boss as far as his staff are concerned. Salesman Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) has always loved receptionist Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) and loves sabotaging his cube-mate, the know-it-all Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson). Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) started as a young, smart, self-possessed temp, but quickly figured out the real office politics despite Michael's attempts to instill the official point-of-view, and gets himself a job at corporate HQ in New York. The staff is rounded out by quiet Phyllis Lapin Vance (Phyllis Smith), beaten down by the working life Stanley Hudson (Leslie David Baker), office alcoholic Meredith Palmer (Kate Flannery), up-tight Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey), formerly closeted homosexual Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez), stocky and uncouth Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner), ambivalent kleptomaniac Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton), Sad Sack HR rep Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein), persistently love-struck Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling), icy corporate manager turned Michael's girlfriend Jan Levinson (Melora Hardin), former Stamford branch denizen and Cornell graduate Andy Bernard (Ed Helms), warehouse foreman Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson), and Pam's ex-fiancé Roy Anderson (David Denman).

  • AUGH!

    Kikkapi is a moron.
  • AUGH!

    All this show is a bunch of awkward people in an office with an even More socially defective boss.

    Its all awkward humor where you laugh AT them... I hate awkward humor it makes me cringe...

    this show gives me goosebumps

    And not in a good way.

    I never understood how there are parts where each character narrates directly TO the camera. Like Big Brother.

    NOT a show I would watch at all

    Avoid if you don't like Awkward humormoreless

  • Why they keep going for so long?

    If the producers had stop when Steve Carell left this show would have been a classic forever. But they ruined by making two whole seasons that weren't funny with new characters that were horrible and a very boring storyline.

    I am currently struggling to watch the 9th season, it's just too boring and unfunny.

    Why did they do this? Surely if it was money they could have a better chance in their careers having a classic show behind them. Instead they now have to live with the fact that they killed the show and had nothing to offer beyond this point.moreless
  • The Office - My Favourite Show of all time

    Let me be completely honest, The Office is my favorite show of all time. I don't care what anyone says, it is my favorite show ever. I've seen the series on netflix from start to finish almost 3 times now, and it is so great. Even when Michael leaves, the show is still extremely funny. The show's comedy lies in the characters, which all have actors that fit the role perfectly, I couldn't imagine dwight being anyone else, or jim, or michael, or kevin. The Finale of this show was perfect, it closed almost all the ties and just made you smile. I really wish I could rate higher then 10.moreless
