The Office


More than just a show, the television show: The Office is a cultural phenomenon. At its zenith, viewership spanned more than 11 million viewers. Board games, T-shirts, video games and even bobble heads were introduced as the show gained increasing popularity. Because of its seemingly normal office atmosphere and hysterical comedy, the show’s popularity exploded and was even chosen to air in the aftermath of Super Bowl XLIII. Currently the Office is set to film its ninth season. The Office depicts the everyday lives of office workers who work for Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.

Filmed to simulate a documentary, the Office has a single- camera setup without a studio audience or a laugh tract—creating the presence of “awkward” humor. A fact somewhat unknown to fans: the show: The Office is actually based off a British series of the same title. The original British series was created in July of 2001, and has since inspired the creation of French, German, Brazilian and American versions of The Office, or shows similar to it.

It is interesting to note that the stereotypical, boring, stressed-out office space is portrayed using a paper company.  Clearly paper can be the source of many petty office squabbles and awkward moments. The creators of the show were probably thinking: “if paper causes so much trouble in a regular office, I wonder what goes on in a paper company?”  The Office appeals to so many viewers because of satirical look at humdrum daily grind of white collar America.  The characters of The Office succumb to their environment, but that does not mean you have to.
