    A documentary crew arrives at the offices of Dunder Mifflin to observe the employees and learn about modern management. Manager Michael Scott tries to paint a happy picture, while sales rep Jim fights with his nemesis Dwight and flirts with receptionist Pam. I feel like Jim's relationship with the rest of the characters is the core of the show, even if Michael is supposed to be the star. The relationship building with Jim / Pam / Dwight in this episode is just too hard to look away from. I like the style of the show and the documentary concept that the show looks to take advantage of. You can see some background characters that may or may not be used, we'll have to see. Solid start though.
