The Office is truly the greatest show currently on TV, or that has ever been on TV. It is a hilaorus show, but there is depth to it that many other comedys lack. To any first time viewers, give it a second chance if you didn't immediately like it. I hated it the first two times I saw it, but by the third time it had become my favorite show. Also, start at S2, either on The Dundies or ES, S1 only really gets good once you have become a fan of the show. My one problem with The Office (though this does not lower my rating) is the sensationalism it has partially given into in S4. We have only had 8 episodes, and may only ever have those 8, but many of the characters, Michael and Dwight in particular, are becoming to fake to be believable. I have complete faith in the writers, and I am sure they will correct this before it goes to far. So, give it a chance if you didn't like it the first time, it is absofruitly amazing.
the office is the single best show on television! it is absolutely hilarious!!!! between michael and his "thats what she said", dwight and all of his crazy antics, and how absolutely adorable jim and pam are together, it is impossible not to get addicted to the office. every character adds something to the show. the writer's strike needs to end right this minute, because i cannot go on with just reruns of the office for much longer! i need new hilarious episodes! the suspense is killing me! but seriously, everyone out there who does not watch this show is missing out!!!
I really need these guys to stop striking...they should have consulted with addicts (like me) before making this decision. Well, i guess i am going to have to watch a bunch a re-runs. P.S. I think I developed a twitch when i heard this horrible news.
This is the best show I have ever seen. The humor is like no other I have ever seen in any other TV show EVER. It is pure genius. Every actor has his own persona which most of us can relate to because we probably know someone like everyone of them. The quirks of the office life, politics, awkward boss/employee interactions, company functions and celebrations. The humor from these situations is captured brilliantly. This show has been very dynamic as well, they are not afraid to go away from their own traditional episodes, but they are always able to keep the same office humor in every episode. The characters are pretty much fully developed now, so if you are new to watching...start from the beginning to understand all the humor.
I think that I might just watch this show, by all the people who have talked about, Im gonna buy the season dvd or somethng and watch it from the start and see if I like it. It looks like a pretty good show, but you never know, I see alot of parodys of the show that make fun of it, but I will give it a chance and heck maybe i'll like it and it'll be one of my favorite shows in the world who knows. So I give this show a thumbs up just from the apperance of it.
With "The Simpsons" and "30 Rock" close behind it, "The Office" is my pick for funniest series on TV today. Despite my misgivings at first about a U.S. remake of a British show, I caught a few episodes in Season 1 and was hooked. Not only is it hilarious to watch but (like "Simpsons") it stays funny on repeat viewings. A mini-marathon on DVD will have me rolling on the floor no matter how many times I've seen an episode.
Plus, "The Office" has survived cast changes, relationship consummations and become the new anchor of NBC's Thursday night. Other shows might not have made it through an event like Pam and Jim finally getting together, but the show has now mined their fledgling relationship for comedy in ways it couldn't before.
Why do I love it so much? Maybe it comes from working in a corporate, cubicle system. Maybe it's because one day, my boss told us she had a surprise for us and brought in ice cream sandwiches. Or maybe I just have a weak funnybone for awkward situations, which "The Office" serves up better (and more realistically) than any other show.
I have seen Series 1 of the UK version, and while I thought it was funny I think the American version has completely blown it away. By showing how much they can do with the concept (and they've really barely scratched the surface on all of the absurdities of the workplace), Carell and Co. have the legs for several more seasons to come. I only hope that when they return from the writer's strike, they still have their "A" game.
The Office is one of the cleverest, funniest shows to ever be produced for television. This show is beyond superiority. It deserves the Emmy and Golden Globe every year for best show. Steve Carell is phenomenal as Michael, Rainn Wilson is completely beyond words as Dwight, Jenna Fischer is stunning as Pam, and John Krasinski is perfect as Jim. In some episodes though, the minor characters supercede the main characters, which is why this is such a great show. Andy is hilarious, and Phylis, Stanley, Kevin, Toby, Kelly, Jan, Darryl, and Creed are also really funny. This show is a must see show and I will be extremely depressed when it stops showing due to the strike.
It is featured on TBS, the office is one of Tbs's funniest shows! the winner for an emmy for best comedy series is very good, but not eno8ugh to be great.
The detail and background of the show doesn't make any sense, but it does have it's punchlines, puns, cultural references and gags that make it so popular! Steve Carrel plays the main guy of this show, a goofy wackjob who has a thing for his boss. He goes through many misadventures with his friends/workers, such as the warehouse episode, and Valentines Day. Many of these are funny, but they take a lot of time back and forth from girls and guys in the warehouse episode.
This show also has it's fair share of critics, like TV.com,IMBD. You get the point. Steve Carrel was in the poorly recieved movie Evan Almighty and Bruce Almighty before that. He plays a great part in this, but he has disadvantages.
This show is funny enough to deserve an emmy, but not enough to recieve the best show of all time. Steve Carrel is sweet and so is the series, but there are many interviews and too many attempts at humor, that it just doesn't hit the box a lot. The show is very, very, very funny, but not very, very, very, very funny. Watch the show, get the dvd's, just learn what the outcome of the show will be.
The Office is one of the best television shows of our time. It is also THE BEST television comedy out there today. The humor is fantastic and the story is intelligent. The characters feel real and are all lovable. Even Michael Scott the branch manager who has a habit of making situations extremely awkward. It's one of the only shows that makes you think of a the character as annoying or embarrasing and then you find yourself feeling bad for him or loving him. Also, the storyline of Jim and Pam is sweet and people can relate to it. People can relate to the whole show. So basically if you can only watch one comedy...watch the office.
I love this show, all the characters mesh together so perfectly its hard not to believe this show is not real. The episode plots and side plots all are bullet proof. The writers of this show really know what they're doing i have never seen a show where ever single episode is perfect (well except star-trek). I really hope this show goes of for a long time possibly past seven seasons they already have four. I think my favorite character is "Dwight", with out his antics with Jim and Pam the show might lose some of its magic. Although there are a lot of other characters that are equally as funny. I would definitely recommend this show to anyone.
I have to start out by saying that the Office is my top favorite television show ever, and I'm pretty picky about my viewing. This is one of two shows that I watch on a consistent basis, the other being October Road. Yes, two completely different shows... Anyways. The Office is unlike anything that has been on TV in American ever before. The spoof-reality show is not only amazingly creative, witty, and satirical, but it also is capable of holding its own as a television show. The American adaptation isn't just a remake... it's unarguably way better than the original British version, because it went wayyy beyond the episodes from the BBC. The office at Scranton has taken on a true life of its own, with Michael Scott, the oblivious boss, at the forefront. And who can't help but be invested in the fate of Pam and Jim? We've been watching them be "friends" for three seasons already! I'm pretty sure that we all want them to work out already and get married or something. Plus, characters like Kevin and Kelly are hilarious! Kelly is still obsessed with her fake-boyfriend, Ryan, who was once a temporary worker but is now working at the corporate office, above Michael! And Stanley, the crossword puzzle guy?? And Dwight!! Every episode, I cry over something Dwight did or said. Like the episode where Jim uses Pavlov's dog experiments to condition Dwight to want a mint every time Jim turned his computer on??? Amaxing. I really hope that he and Angela can work things out. I could just go on and on about this show. I await its airing every Thursday night, making sure that my viewing will be stress-free and uninterrupted! Anyways, if you haven't watched The Office yet, then... go to Blockbuster and rent the first season!! You'll be hooked so easily, just like I was. Soon, you'll be a regular viewer, like myself and millions of others.
I can honestly say that this show is so realistic to what an office or work place can be life, it never gets old for me. I have seen this show many times and I am always laughing at the original episodes, all the different character plot lines, and the ridiculous humor in general. Steve Carell is so funny in the show- he is a great actor and the way he acts so childish and ridicuously funny is amazing. People who like real-life jokes and humor should totally watch this show- I can't stop!!! My favorite episodes are probably the one with the office christmas party, Hooters with Michael and Jim, and the Booze Cruise. I never want this to end.
wow.well i guess ill just talk about the characters and stuff. Dwight by far is my favorite character.his witty comments just make the show even better( if i COULD get better)"the eyes are the groin of the head" and when he started singing "ryan started the fire" i just cant get the song out of my head! Jim and Pam started dating a little early in my opinion but im beginning to like it now. although i kinda miss those cute crush moments they had. Micheal is probably my seconds favorite. he always seems so sure of himself"why would they want you stanley?"because of my sales record i suppose"no that cant be it" and when he tried to declare bankrupcy. " I DECLARE BANRUPCTYYYYY!! i really loved it!I kind coside jim and pam one character now. but i wish they would do more pranks on Dwight. although the one they did was hilarious. "the computer is alive" man i love Dwight!1
Thiss one is nice to watch ;D

This seems to be The Season of Contrived Romances. First, there was only the Jim and Pam thing. Then it was Michael and Jan, then Ryan and Kelly. Gee, what an incestuous little branch office ! Then Dwight and Angela. Now, with this season they're taking a page from Friends. Let's all switch ! Now, it's Darryl and Kelly, Andy and Angela. So, the real question isn't about the plot idiocy of the latter, but why Kevin and Phyllis haven't been included in this office love-in! This all seems to be a blatant play to the femme demographic, which I guess they had to at some point due to their multi-season renewal. But it just means more FF time on my remote. If this keeps up they'll lose me next season. Who am I kidding ? Of course, it'll continue down this path, just like Friends, just like Scrubs. I'm really not in it for the square-dance trading of relationships. That's NOT what made this series the success it WAS.
This show is so funny that I can't laugh. It is so brilliant that it's painful to even try to laugh. I honestly hurt when watching this show. But, it's so good that the pain is worth it watching this show.
If you do not think this show is funny then you probably don't get it. Because, it is highly intelligent even though to the un-trained brain it looks really stupid.
This is stupid that you have to have a 100 word count min. to submit a review. I'm currently at 92 word count, wait now I'm at 99 word. Hey, now I'm there and can quit typing now. Now, I have exceeded the 100 word count! This is word number 121.

Jan spent Michael's money on the condo so he gets a second job then tries to declare bankruptcy. Dwight's depressed over his breakup with Angela.Jim and Pam go to Schrute Farms for the night. Andy continues his pursuit of Angela. Kelly and Darryl hook up
I'm sure many will under appreciate this episode because it's not the usual laugh riot it normally is, but it does have very funny moments. One or two episodes like this a season would be nice. Seeing Dwight's meltdown happen before our eyes was sad. Who hasn't cried over a lost love? But Jim and Pam helping him out was awesome. Jim and Pam: so cute. Seeing them curled up for Dwight's reading of Harry Potter was awesome. Loved seeing the look on Jim's face after telling Dwight how depressed he was when Pam was with Roy and the determination as he marches up to Pam to kiss her. LOVED the kiss!!! More please. Makes me giddy with their cuteness but again it's just enough, not over the top. Won't be able to hear the phrase "Italian food" without thinking of Jim saying he's in love with Italian Food. Michael's money problems were sad but seeing his reaction to it (trying to hop a train to get outta dodge!?!), the second job, how all those coworkers just adored him, him having to quit, Oscar's attempt to help and Jan's eventual support is a one of many reasons why you watch this show. So many things happen-many of them subtle - Michael not realizing he's called Stanley, Krazy Kelly and Darryl - he may be able to get her to access her uncrazy side, not-used-enough cousin Mose. Jan chucking the keys of her car at Oscar as if he's valet. Favorite little subtle moment of the episode: Michael and Jan's feet dangling as they sit on the train discussing their situation. Wonderful to see her appreciate Michael.
Dunder Mifflin this is Pam! Those words i just love. It opens the doors of ordinary people; none of them are heroes/masterminds, we are sure they are alive and living somewhere where people generally live(!) and they have just... ordinary lives. Nothing but the possibility of running into such an impossible jungle of impersonations makes this series great. I have to admit when i started watching, the first season didn't sign me up so easily. The characters seemed too much like a sociology experiment to tell the truth, but the unbeatable(!) overall rhyme prevented me from pushing that stop button. Now i hate that i have finished the first 3 seasons over the weekend and actually have to wait for a week, and god forbid those days to come, even months for another episode to come!!! Love you guys!
When I sat down to watch the pilot episode of The Office (US) I was excited. I am a great fan of the UK version, and I looked forward to seeing more.
That was my mistake.
I wanted to continue the UK story. But that was impossible, it was over.
So, when NBC decided to show us a word-for-word copy as the pilot, I was less then thrilled. Stiff acting, zero chemistry, and I had heard the jokes (delivered much better by the UK crew).
I stuck around for three more episodes from the 1st season, to try to give it a chance. It was never able to redeem itself.
So, fast forward a few years. I am introducing my wife to The Office (UK) and I decide to give the US another go. People kept saying it was great. So I sat down and watched the rest of the 1st season and a bit of the 2nd. I soon realized I was watching them three or four at a time. THEY DID IT! They actually made it their own show!
I now believe The Office (US) is one of the greatest comedies on US television. Thankfully I gave it another chance.
The Office has to be one of the most unique, refreshing, enjoyable television shows to ever be put on the air. It masterfully encompasses both comedic situations and fully fleshed out character relationships. This is achieved thanks to some of the most enticing persona's on TV. But what really makes the show interesting are the interactions between those characters and persona's. The conversations and actions between Michael and Dwight are truly hilarious. Then of course you have Pam and Jim, Ryan and Kelly, Michael and Jan, just wonderful chemistry between nearly everyone all around. The show can even be awkward at times but it dares to push the boundaries of what is considered funny while doing so.
I was hooked when I first started watching this show, and it's one of the few in recent years that I feel like I have to watch every week. You laugh at the antics, but at the same time really care about the characters in the show, which is not easily achieved in a comedy by any means. The show is going strong and there are always several "gems" in each season that go above and beyond what I would expect in a comedy show.
This show depicts the life of about a dozen office workers who work for a Paper Company named Dundler Mufflin in an American suburb.
From the very first few episodes, the characters are very lovable and for a show with such a large cast, their is room for a lot of character development throughout the series. You grow to love most of the Dunder Mufflin employees within a few minutes of watching the show, and their outrageous antics can always make you laugh.
The situations the group go through are very funny and are often mixed with a slight hint of drama. The on/off relationship between Jim and Pam gives viewers a sense of a overall storyline, while characters like Michael, Dwight and Andy are always giving you something to giggle about episode after episode.
This show has continued to improve season by season, and is definitely one of the best comedies around at the moment.
This show is centered around a paper company, Dundler Mifflin, and it's interesting employees. There's Micheal, the attention loving and often oblivious boss, Dwight, Micheal's right hand man, Jim who pulls pranks and deeply enjoys pissing off Dwight, Pam who's the secretary and helps Jim, and many more.
Not just nearly, but every episode of this show has me nearly crying. It is absolutely fabulous, and is hilarious. Some of the crazy situations Micheal gets into blows my mind, and the way he handles them just adds to the show's awesomeness. The pranks that are pulled on Dwight will entertain you to no end, and the suspenceful romance will have you coming back for more.
Definately a show worth checking out.
Michael scott is the regional manager in an office and he thinks he's the best boss ever. Along with Dwight.k.shrute and Jim Halpert, the show sure has potential. Dwight thinks highly of Michael and his only ally in the office. WATCH THE SHOW!!!
Michael scott is the regional manager of Dunder Miffin, an office based in Scranton. Dwight Shrute is the best sales person in the office. Pam and Jim are the guys in love(they start dating only in the 4th season). Ryan is the temp turned boss.
The thing about this series is that- its a situation based comedy. The comedy lies in the situation and expressions and there is hardly any dialogue comedy as in Seinfeld and Friends.
Jim & Pam often play pranks on Dwight. I really adore his charecter.
The office is a must watch, and I really feel its gets better with every season.
The Office US an American version of the hit British The Office. A funny show has taken a life of its own with expanding the storylines and cast beyond its British counterpart. However the stories can get receptive. After a while the antics of office manager Michael Scott are no longer funny just painful and embarrassing. The cast are all great in their roles and have a great sense of comic timing. Several standouts are B.J. Novak (Ryan Howard), Creed Bratton and Leslie David Baker (Stanley Hudson). One can only hope they can keep up the pace and know when to call it quits on time.
This is now my favorite show. The continuity from season to season and show to show is great. The character development is coming along nicely. If Toby wasn't such a *schlub* of a Human Resources guy the show wouldn't be able to work. Micheal is hysterical and I love the new direction the show has taken his "relationship" with Jan. Domestic bliss - ha.
The PB & J plot held everyone on the edge of their seats last season, I think it will settle down into a more normal pace kind of like the first season where they are the only "normal" ones at DM.
I just started getting into this show early 3rd season, but after that I became obsessed! I watched it right after My Name is Earl (a great show) and I just couldn't change the channel. Half my friends love the show and the other half hate it... so I guess it's a love it or hate it show. I love it! I think this show is (almost) realistic. It is really original (except for the fact it's a run-off of a British version which I never saw). I can actually say with trust that this show will be around for a long, long time.
There are times when you chuckle at a tv show. There are times when you smile at a show. Then there's THE OFFICE. I was laughing so hard that I had trouble breathing. Over and over again this show overdelivers. I originally thought the sensitive nipple thing was a single line. Then it comes back again with cotton balls taped to his chest, then the bloody nipples. That's just one example of how the writers repeatedly give you more than you imagined. Everything Michael says is classic and Dewight is the best moron on tv. I want one of the Schrute Beets Farms t-shirts.
Good to Great comedy. They seem to have solved the whole Jim and Pam thing and hopefully it will not be the shows downfall because it is truly a good ensemble comedy. I find myself liking ALL the characters. Stanley, Toby, Kevin, Angela and Kelly are equally as good as Jim, Pam, Dwight and of course Michael. The show still centers around those four main characters (Jim, Pam, Dwight and Michael) but everyone is funny and great in their own right. The works best when the whole office is involved in an event. Michael is at his best embarrassing himself in public in front of all his co-workers.
This show is AMAZING. As far as i know, it is the first of its kind (in the U.S.) to be filmed 'documentary style'. This is excellent, because it seems as if it is raw unscripted footage. And the fact that there is no laugh track is a HUGE bonus. The humor is quietly presented, but provokes huge laughs. My favorite character is Jim Harper. He has really good facial expressions, and is what I consider to be the main character. It is a very special show, unique and original. It just keeps getting better as the show progresses. I can't wait to watch more and urge everyone else to do so!
