UK & US Pilot Compare and Contrast

13 Dec

In case any watchers of the U.S. version of The Office didn’t already know, the very first episode from the very first season, refereed to as “Pilot” has a slew of similarities with the pilot episode of the British version. Steve Carell did not even allow himself to watch the UK version of The Office for fear that he would accidentally copy Ricky Gervais‘ performance of his parallel character David BrentContinue reading

Jim & Pam

13 Dec

Although Jim and Pam have come a long way from just being in the “friend zone“, viewers would not truly be able to appreciate what is Jim and Pam without watching the development of their character relationship over time. The first two seasons of The Officealthough slow-moving, have some of the best and classic moments between this dynamic duo.

Aside from this, there are a number of plot lines set up with the season premiere “The New Guys”.  Continue reading

The Mystery Of Creed

6 Sep

The Officea show centered around the characters of Michael Scott, Jim Halpert, Pam Beasley and Dwight Schrute, has many other characters who are an integral part of the series. One character, however, has always stood out in a sort of creepy, endearing way. I am talking about the one, the only Creed Bratton. Who exactly is Creed though?
