The setting (the office of a small branch of paper-selling company) and the stories (everyday life of the people found working in such a low-prospects jobs) seem mundane at first. And there lies the magic of the creators. For (if the endless strings of CSIs are any indication) it not hard to create good TV with car chases, gadgets and explosions. It is extremely hard to make excellent TV with only the everyday grind to work with. It seems effortless only because they made it look easy.
The brief one-way interviews each character had with the camera functioned as either prefatory summaries of stories about to unfold (building up the anticipation) or as instances of pushing back, yet never breaking, the forth wall, and, thus, making the viewing experience more personal and involving. All without the show ever loosing its step.
Producing, directing and writing will only get you so far without the right cast. And THE OFFICE enjoyed such stellar cast. Steve Carell may have risked getting typecast by creating the unforgettable character of Michael Scott but it was worth it. Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) served first as the precarious love interest and then as the familiar friends you care about and the rest of the cast was one successful pick after another.Read more ›
The comedy of the US series a lot broader than the UK version. But I find it much more fun.
As others have said, Michael is without doubt the gel for all of this. He can still produce some of the most painful foot-in-mouth situations worthy of David Brent. Yes, there are plenty of silly bits and outright dumb things going on, but this series gets enough right to make it more than worthwhile.
Overall it hasn't got a hope of reaching the highs and lows of the British original, but it still has plenty of charm.

Scott's cringeworthiness is cranked up to 11 in this season. Watch particularly for the episode after `the wedding' and Scott's Totts. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Daniel E
