When it comes to sitcom, the office is the rule of this genre. The Office represents the age of Modern Sitcoms. Sitcoms that are awkward, insecure, no laugh tracks, and simple plots.
I used to love FRIENDS. It was funny until I watch The Office. FRIENDS is a funny show with some unique jokes, but it feels scripted and the laugh tracks annoy me.
What makes The Office so special and why you should watch it
This show is set around the environment of the office. The office can be a boring and dull place. But this show has transformed that dull place. The office is dull but the characters that work in the office are hilarious. They have their own goals, they often fail, they have a boss who is too attached with the office and often annoys the staff members. They have a salesperson, Dwight Schrute who is a weird guy, but somehow this show makes you fall in love with Dwight. If you want to be blown away with top-level comedy then this premise is perfect for you.
The characters of this show are the heart of the office. We have Michael Scott, who is the manager of the branch and often annoys the workers or acts too dumb. We all can relate to him. He is the best character of the show for me. His character development is perfect. Dwight Schrute is a weird guy with his own rules and his own way of doing things. Jim is the awkward sales guy who knows everything and stares in the camera. Pam, Kevin, Oscar, Angela are also worthy characters.
These characters are not special. They are just some office workers living their dull life and making the best out of it.
