  • Based on the popular British comedy of the same name, THE OFFICE takes place in and around the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Using the same mockumentary style as the original, the series succeeds in capturing the quiet desperation of the poor souls working in this socially stifling environment under the direction of delusional boss, regional manager Michael Scott. Comic actor Steve Carell beautifully inhabits the role, playing a man so eager to be liked, he completely alienates people with one stupid antic after another. Blindly believing himself beloved by his employees for his laid-back nature, Michael fails to see that, with the exception of nerdy and bizarre Dwight (Rainn Wilson), he is resented and despised by all. Carell perfectly walks the line between despicable and pathetic, enlisting his audience's sympathies just moments before doing or saying something horribly inappropriate. The second season is even better than the first, with several romantic storylines getting into full swing in episodes like "Email Surveillance," "Sexual Harassment," and "Booze Cruise.". THE OFFICE may be a remake, but it has charms of its very own. SEASON TWO contains all 22 episodes from the season.

  • Critic Reviews
    "The saltine-dry cubicle humor and Carell's painfully hilarious performance still take center stage..." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    5 stars out of 5 -- "[E]xceptional....There's welcome development for the supporting cast, who rise to the challenge magnificently...."
    Ultimate DVD

    "THE OFFICE really came into is own, stepping out of the shadow of its British forbearer and into its own wonderfully wince-worthy world."
    Movieline's Hollywood Life

    3 stars out of 5 -- "It's extremely funny and beautifully acted, especially by Steve Carell as the insufferable boss."

    4 stars out of 5 -- "THE OFFICE continues to benefit from fantastic casting and a clear understanding of the original's concept."

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Standout eps include Michael burning his foot on a George Foreman grill, he and Dwight fighting at the local dojo and the team enacting an action-movie script that Michael's scribbled on the sly."
