A mediocre paper company in the hands of Scranton, PA branch manager Michael Scott. This mockumentary follows the everyday lives of the manager and the employees he "manages." The crew follows the employees around 24/7 and captures their quite humorous and bizarre encounters as they will do what it takes to keep the company thriving.Written by
The Penn Paper building featured in the opening credits is located at 215 Vine Street in Scranton, Pennsylvania, which is about one block from Mifflin Avenue. This is likely, from where the fictional company name "Dunder Mifflin" came. The "Penn Paper" sign on the building has now been replaced by "PA Paper" in blue lettering. See more »
Although everybody who works at Dundler-Mifflin is used to the crew of cameramen and boom mic operators, few people outside of the office would be. Yet, most people act unaware of their presence, whether they are walking into the office, or if the camera crew follows members of the office somewhere, such as into a crowded restaurant, school or other offices. Most people's natural reaction would be to look directly at the camera or what is being filmed. See more »
I watched the British version of The Office and became a fan - as almost everyone. So I decided to see if the American version was as good as the original. A doubt feeling emerged at the first episode, since I still was with the original - and awesome - characters in mind. They were not just funny, but peculiar, inimitable. I didn't let this impression ruin my experience, though. Gladly. The American version is obviously inspired in the British version, but they are not the same. Simple like this. The American characters are not mere counterparts of David, Tim, Gareth, Dawn... They are hole new versions of the kind of people we can easily find in any office. And equally inspired versions of these workers. Since I've lost several episodes when they aired for the first time, I'm now at the third season, and I will surely see all the episodes through the end. More than one time...
