I recently re-watched the show that started an international phenomenon. The original version of The Office has spawned many imitators, but never any that live up to the original. This is the fifth or sixth time that I’ve watched the series in its entirety. While upon first viewing the series can be seen as a brilliant piece of British comedy- and it is- it is only with this viewing that I realized what the show really is. The Office is an amazing dramatic piece that lays bare the crushing ennui that effects men and women in contemporary society.
