TV Series of the Month – The Office (U.S.)

This month’s TV Series: The Officer (2005-2013)

The workplace mockumentary follows the employees of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company’s Scranton, PA, branch, both their work and personal lives. It is a remake of the British series of the same name.

The show is created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, who also created the British series; however, it is developed for American audiences by Greg Daniels.

In many ways, The Office was able to differentiate and maybe even outshine its British counterpart. The first season was a bit rocky as it tried to find its place, but from the start of season two the series found its voice, creating a very funny and heartfelt show. Yet, as funny as the show is, its best attribute is its great characters. Over the course of nine seasons, these characters are developed and become people the viewer comes to really care about. It is one of the best sitcoms of recent memory.

Available on: DVD and Video On-Demand
