TV.com summary

The Office is a Golden Globe, Emmy & Peabody Award- winning American television sitcom airing on NBC and developed by Greg Daniels. It is an American adaptation of the BBC series of the same name. Unlike most sitcoms, The Office is shot in a single-camera setup, without a studio audience or a laugh track, and is made in the form of a documentary, or "mockumentary". It depicts the everyday lives of office employees in the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. Although fictional and scripted, the show takes the form of a documentary, with the presence of the camera openly acknowledged.

Setting

The British version had been set in Slough, a commuter town on the outskirts of London. Looking for a suitable U.S. equivalent, Executive Producer Greg Daniels considered Nashua, New Hampshire and Utica, New York before settling on Scranton, Pennsylvania. "It just seemed like a real place," he said later. "[B]y definition the town we picked wouldn't have a lot of glitzy stuff going on."[3] It was just far enough away from New York to be credible as a location for a regional branch office. Daniels also recalled that the Paper Magic line of greeting cards was made in the city.[4] When asked before the premiere what differences there might be from the British version, Gervais joked that the American actors would have better teeth.[5] Slough (pronounced ) is a town and unitary authority (Borough of Slough) in England. ...

Miscellaneous

The show's first season had a run of just six episodes, and was filmed in an actual office.[6] For the second season, since NBC ordered a full run of episodes, filming moved to a sound stage at Valley Center Studios in Van Nuys, built to replicate the first season's environment,[6] including plaques and certificates hanging on walls using the names of crew members.[7] Soundstage redirects here. ...


In keeping with its mockumentary format, the show has no laugh track. All music must be diegetic, with songs either sung or played by the characters or heard on radios, computers or other devices. Featured music tends to be well known, and often older, popular songs in order to reflect the character, such as Michael's attempt to seem hip by using "My Humps" as a ringtone.[8]Although the show is intended to be observed as a documentary, during some scenes it is obvious it took two separate takes because the camera that was just shooting will disappear (an example would be in the episode "Safety Training", Michael is on a rooftop standing next to a cameraman talking to the office members below, and when the office members respond to him, Michael is suddenly standing alone on the rooftop).

Casting

All original series characters were adapted for the U.S. version. NBC programmer Kevin Reilly suggested Paul Giamatti to producer Ben Silverman for the role of Michael Scott, but the actor declined. Martin Short, Hank Azaria and Bob Odenkirk were also reported to be interested.[23] In January 2004, Variety reported Steve Carell of the popular Comedy Central program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, was in talks to play the role. At the time, he was already committed to another NBC midseason replacement comedy, Come to Papa,[24] but the series was quickly cancelled, leaving him fully committed to The Office. Carell later stated he had only seen about half of the original pilot episode of the British series before he auditioned. He did not continue watching for fear that he would start copying Gervais' characterizations.[25] Rainn Wilson, who was cast as the power-hungry sycophant Dwight Schrute, had watched every episode of the series before he auditioned.[26] Wilson had originally auditioned for Michael, a performance he described as a "terrible [Ricky] Gervais impersonation"; however, the casting directors liked his audition as Dwight much more and hired him for the role. John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer were virtual unknowns before being cast in their respective roles as Jim and Pam, the central love interests. Krasinski recalled accidentally insulting Daniels while waiting to audition for the series, telling him, "I hope they [the show's developers] don't screw this up." Daniels then introduced himself and told Krasinki who he was.[27] Fischer prepared for her audition by looking as boring as possible, creating the original Pam hairstyle at her first audition for the show.[28] Kevin Reilly is a former NBC president fired in May 2007 after the network had one of its least-watched seasons ever. ...

The supporting cast includes actors known for their improv work: Angela Kinsey, Kate Flannery, Oscar Nunez, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Melora Hardin and David Denman.[29] Kinsey had originally auditioned for Pam. The producers thought she was "too feisty" for the character, but they called her back for the part of Angela Martin, which she won.[30] Flannery first auditioned for the part of Jan Levinson-Gould, before landing the role of Meredith Palmer.[31] Baumgartner originally auditioned for Stanley, but was eventually cast as Kevin.[32] Ken Kwapis liked the way Phyllis Smith, a casting associate, read with other actors auditioning so much that he cast her as Phyllis.[33] At the beginning of the third season, Ed Helms and Rashida Jones joined the cast as members of Dunder Mifflin Stamford. While Jones would later leave the cast for a recurring role, in February 2007 NBC announced that Helms was being promoted to a series regular.[34] This article does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...

Four of the show's writers have also stepped out in front of the camera. Novak was cast as reluctant temp Ryan Howard after Daniels saw his stand-up act. Paul Lieberstein was cast as human resources director Toby Flenderson on Novak's suggestion after his cold readings of scripts.[29] Greg Daniels originally was not sure where to use the Indian American Kaling on-screen in the series until the opportunity came in the second episode's script where Michael needed to be slapped by a minority. "Since (that slap), I've been on the show" (as Kelly Kapoor), says Kaling.[33] Schur has also made occasional appearances as Dwight's cousin Mose, and consulting producer Wilmore has played diversity trainer Mr. Brown.

Improvisation

A complete script is written for each episode of The Office. However, actors are given opportunities to improvise during shooting. "Our shows are 100 percent scripted," Fischer explained. "They put everything down on paper. But we get to play around a little bit, too. Steve and Rainn are brilliant improvisers."[38]


The kiss Michael planted on Oscar in "Gay Witch Hunt" was improvised. "Steve just went into that bit on the fly," Fischer wrote. "Those looks of shock/giddiness/confusion on our faces are real. We were all on the edge of our seats wondering what would happen next. I can't believe we held it together for as long as we did. I'm not sure we've ever laughed so hard on set."[39] Wikiquote has a collection of quotations related to: The Office (US) Gay Witch Hunt is the first episode of the third season of The Office (U.S. version). ...


Format

"The Office" is presented as a "mockumentary," and the primary vehicle for the show is that a camera crew has decided to film Dunder Mifflin and its employees, seemingly around the clock. The presence of the camera is openly acknowledged by the characters, with some characters (especially Michael Scott) enthusiastically participating in the filming while others (namely, Jan Levinson) are frequently annoyed or uncomfortable at its presence. The main action of the show is supplemented with talking-head interviews or "confessionals," with the characters speaking one on one with the camera crew about the day's events. Some characters use the camera's presence to their advantage. For example, in Christmas Party, Phyllis's boyfriend Bob Vance introduces himself repeatedly as "Bob Vance, Vance refrigeration" to garner publicity for his business. In other instances, the camera has affected plot lines. In The Dundies, a drunken Pam nearly confesses something to Jim, but shies away when she notices the camera. In E-mail Surveillance, Pam asks the crew to help her look for evidence of Dwight and Angela's secret relationship, which they later provide. In Fun Run, the cameras catch Jim and Pam kissing, which leads to them revealing (to the viewing audience at least) that they are in fact dating. Dunder-Mifflin, Inc. ...

In early episodes, the camera crews seemed confined primarily to the office setting, but as the show has expanded to include more about the character's personal lives, the cameras have taken on an often-omnipresent, even intrusive persona. Characters are often followed out of the office and sometimes even to their homes. The cameras were present at Jim's barbecue and Michael's dinner party, and even when Jim and Pam left for a weekend getaway (although the trip was to Dwight's beet farm) - all arguably personal, not work-related, events. Behind-doors conversations are often filmed through a window or crack in the door. It is shown in The Injury that Michael is wearing a wireless microphone, which could explain why the cameras are often able to hear closed-door conversations. The cameras have caught Jan kissing Michael in Valentine's Day, much to Jan's chagrin, and, as mentioned above, revealed both Dwight and Angela's and Jim and Pam's personal relationships. Non-primary characters or extras who encounter the camera crew are usually unsurprised or unaffected by it, and the cameras were even allowed in to Michael, Jim and Karen's job interviews for a corporate position.

Deleted scenes

On The Office, deleted scenes are considered part of the show's story line, and have sometimes been restored in repeats to make episodes longer. In an experiment, a deleted scene from "The Return" was made available over nbc.com and iTunes that explained the absence of a character over the next several episodes. Daniels hoped that word of mouth among fans would spread the information, but eventually considered the experiment a failure.[40] The missing scene was restored in later airings.

The Office has had product placement deals with Staples[41] and the Olympic baler,[42] as well as mentioning in dialog or displaying clear logos for products such as Sandals Resorts, HP and Gateway computers, and Activision's Call of Duty video game. In "The Merger", Kevin Malone uses a Staples-branded shredding machine to shred a Staples-branded CD-R and many other non-paper items, including a salad.[41] As with HP, Cisco Systems, a supplier of networking and telephone equipment, pays for product placement, which can be seen on close up shots of the Cisco IP Telephones.[43] In the Season two episode "The Secret" Michael takes Jim to Hooters to discuss Jim's feelings for Pam.

Many products featured are not part of product placement agreements, but rather inserted by writers as products the characters would use, to create realism under the guise of a documentary.

Their relationship comes after three seasons of friendship laced with sexual tension. Dwight Schrute, the assistant "to the" regional manager, is an award-winning salesman and former Lackawanna County volunteer reserve deputy sheriff known for his authoritarian personality and science fiction fandom.

Response

Before the show aired, Gervais acknowledged that there were feelings of hesitation from certain viewers. "I think people are always gonna be wary of a remake—it's a tradition," he said. "But this remake is aimed at the 249 million Americans who didn't see the original TV show. There's not gonna be many Texas farmhands going, 'Eccch, not another version. I can't believe it.'"[65]


Critical reviews and commentary

Before its first airing, the New York Daily News called it "so diluted there's little left but muddy water", and USA Today called it a "passable imitation of a miles-better BBC original".[66] A Guardian Unlimited review panned its lack of originality, stating, "(Steve Carell) just seems to be trying too hard ...

Reviews became more positive in the second season. Time magazine remarked, "Producer Greg Daniels created not a copy but an interpretation that sends up distinctly American work conventions ... with a tone that's more satiric and less mordant. ... The new boss is different from the old boss, and that's fine by me."[68] Entertainment Weekly echoed these sentiments a week later, stating, "Thanks to the fearless Steve Carell, an ever-stronger supporting cast, and scripts that spew American corporate absurdist vernacular with perfect pitch, this undervalued remake does the near impossible—it honors Ricky Gervais' original and works on its own terms."[69] TIME redirects here. ...

The Onion's A.V. Club expressed its views on the show's progression: "After a rocky start, The Office improved immeasurably, instantly becoming one of TV's funniest, sharpest shows. The casting of Steve Carell in the Gervais role proved to be a masterstroke. The American Office is that rarest of anomalies: a remake of a classic show that both does right by its source and carves out its own strong identity."[70] Time magazine's James Poniewozik named it one of the Top 10 Returning Series of 2007, ranking it at #6.[71] He also included it on his "The 100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME" list.[72] The A.V.

Some corporate executives and management consultants see the show as instructive to managers beyond merely providing a counterexample of quality management, "great material for management training on what not to do", according to one Florida real-estate developer. It reminds managers that they will never be perfect, certainly not to their subordinates, and that even their best plans will be subject to office gossip and other resistance.

There have been political responses to the show. Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter believes the show's popularity arises partly from what he views as a political allegory of the George W. Bush administration. Michael and Dwight, he says, share much in common with George W. Bush and Dick Cheney respectively, both in appearance and temperament.[74] On an episode of The Daily Show, Republican presidential candidate John McCain, reportedly a devoted fan of the show, jokingly told Jon Stewart he might take Dwight Schrute as his running mate.[75] Rainn Wilson later accepted on Dwight's behalf while on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Of the 12.4 million total viewings of "Fun Run", the fourth season's premiere, 2.7 million, or 22%, were on a computer via online streaming. "The Office", said The New York Times, "is on the leading edge of a sharp shift in entertainment viewing that was thought to be years away: watching television episodes on a computer screen is now a common activity for millions of consumers." It was particularly popular with online viewers, an NBC researcher said, because as an episode-driven sitcom without special effects it was easy to watch on smaller monitors such as those found on laptops and iPods.[97] Between the online viewings and those who use digital video recorders, 25-50% of the show's viewers watch it after its scheduled airtime.[98] For the event, see Fun run. ...

The show's Internet success became an issue in the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. Daniels and many of the cast members who double as writers posted a video to YouTube shortly after the strike began, pointing out how little, if any, they received in residuals from online and DVD viewing. "You're watching this on the Internet, a thing that pays us zero dollars," Schur said. "We're supposed to get 11 cents for every two trillion downloads." The writers were particularly upset that they weren't compensated for the Daytime Emmy Award winning summer webisodes "The Accountants", which NBC considered promotional material despite the embedded commercials.[99] YouTube is a popular video sharing website where users can upload, view and share video clips. ...
