Old Friend Revisited : The Office (US)

Last month i was feeling under the weather, i spent a lot of time at home, so i decided to rewatch one of my all time favorite tv shows, The Office.

So, what’s the office all about?

The series depicts the everyday lives of office employees in the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. To simulate the look of an actual documentary, it is filmed in a single-camera setup, without a studio audience or a laugh track. The show debuted on NBC as a mid-season replacement and ran for nine seasons, and 201 episodes. The Office features Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, B. J. Novak, Ed Helms, and James Spader on the main cast.

And now …

When did you start watching the show?

I think it was about 5 years ago…

Why did you started watching it?

I started watching the show when a roommate i had recomendad it to me. I was skeptic about watching this kind of comedy at first, but it catched and captivated me very quickly.

When did you knew you love the show so much it’ve become a favorite?

Pretty much after the “I’ve always been your biggest flan” joke in the pilot, i knew i had found a new favorite.

How many times did you watch the show?

I watched this show at least five times from begining to end and it never disappoints me. For some reason, for me the jokes don’t get old.

Who is your favorite character?

Most of the time is Jim Halper, but sometimes i think i prefer Dwight, … anyway, most of the time Jim.

Who is your least favorite character?

Ryan… i just hate him.

Favorite season?

Either four or five, i can’t choose.

Least favorite season?

It may be season nine.

One thing you just totally loved;

The pranks Jim was always doing to Dwight, it was freaking hillarious most of the time, the beets, bears, battleastar galactica is the best thing ever!

One thing you disliked;

I never found funny how people treated Toby, the HR guy, he was so nice to everyone, maybea little slow and such, but he didn’t deserve the hate he got.

Would you recommend it?

Yeah, i think it’s a great show, but all the people seem to not like it for some reason, although it may be because it has nine seasons and it’s pretty much a commitment, but i think you can just watch random episodes and enjoy it too…

Any last words about the show?

I don’t know… i mean, i think it’s a good show, mostly because most of its humor is healthy humor, it doesn’t go cheap, there’s only a few “that’s what she said” jokes, because there’s this character that likes them, but i believe it is good tv, not like the things that are now going on….

If you are looking for an easy going and funny show that won’t break your heart [much] i totally recommend this show to you!
