The Office

Have you seen The Office? Have you ever heard of Netflix? Are you familiar with the internet?

Just a few questions I’d ask if you’re answer to the first question was a no. The Office is my all-time favorite comfort show. No matter how I’m feeling, I can put on any episode and be temporarily swept away from my own personal shortcomings in life. It will almost immediately alter my mood, and I’d go so far as to say I’m a better person after watching an episode or two.

Jim and Pam pranking Dwight keep this show alive

The show spans 9 seasons, and is about a paper company in Scranton, PA. It takes you through the daily workings inside the office, and everything that comes with working in a small space with many personalities.

I’ve seen the show at least four or five times through, as I usually put it on when I’m about to go to sleep. It clears my mind, and instead of trying to get to sleep with all of my daily problems floating around in my head, I can fall asleep with a smile on my face thinking about how ridiculous Michael Scott’s life is.

Michael Scott is one of four main characters in the show, and he is also the office boss. The other main characters (IMO of course) would be Jim, Pam, and Dwight. The dynamic between these characters is a combination of writing, directing, and acting genius. Every time I re-watch this show in its entirety, I notice something that had previously gone unnoticed. A minor detail becomes apparent, and I make a connection to why certain other things happen on the show.

If you really haven’t seen this show, you have to give it a chance. It is THE go to new relationship show. If you aren’t totally comfortable with a partner yet, put on the office, share some laughs, and get to know each other through the conversation that pops up due to the situations portrayed in this beautifully put together show.

  1. I absolutely LOVE The Office! One of my all time favorite comedy shows, and definitely funnier than the original version with Ricky Gervais. I couldn’t agree with you more on the four main characters, as everyone else in the office has far fewer lines. Though I’ve seen just about every episode, reading this is gonna make me rewatch a few episodes for sure.

  2. My best friend in high school used to nag me about watching the show and he still does because I haven’t been able to. Now that I finally finished watching Parks and Rec, I think I’m ready to watch The Office. I always see compilations of Jim’s pranks or the blooper reels and they make me laugh non-stop, so I will seriously watch this show and take your advice of watching it with my boyfriend!
