The Office: Show Review


Boston Palmer, Entertainment reporter

Though this may be a cliché, “The Office” is one of the funniest shows that I have watched with hours of endless entertainment.


If you don’t know what “The Office”  is then you need to catch up but I guess I will let you know what it is. “The Office” is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from 2005 to 2013. Set in the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, The show is filmed in a mockumentary style, following the daily lives and interactions of the office employees.


One of the greatest things about “The Office” is its outstanding cast. Steve Carell stars as the bumbling but well-intentioned manager Michael Scott, who often serves as the show’s comedic anchor. The supporting cast, including Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Mindy Kaling, are all equally talented and add their own unique comedic flair to the show.


The way “The Office” was written is another highlight of the show. The show is full of witty one-liners, awkward moments, and cringe-worthy situations that are both hilarious and relatable. The show also manages to balance its humor with moments of heart and emotion, particularly in the later seasons.


The mockumentary style of “The Office” is also noteworthy. The use of talking head interviews and camera confessionals adds an extra layer of humor and allows the show to break the fourth wall in a way that feels natural. The style also helps to reinforce the show’s theme of examining the mundane and finding humor in the everyday. The office is one of my all-time favorite comedies and is definitely worth a watch! If you have nothing to do on a Friday night then find a place where you can watch the office because you will not stop laughing… except for the parts where you are cringing but even that is funny!
