Review

The Office takes place at Wernham Hogg, a paper company in Slough, a dull town that breeds apathy, disgust, and boredom. In order to maintain even a semblance of sanity, the workers resort to a neverending series of pranks, usually at the expense of the humorless Gareth, a frightening looking young man who never tires of reminding us of his service in the Territorial Army. The most relentless prankster is Tim, a loser in his 30s who still lives at home, and is one of the few who knows that he’s throwing his life away in a flurry of mindless labor. And then we have Dawn, the receptionist who flirts with Tim, but maintains her engagement with the dreary Lee, who works in the warehouse. Other memorable characters include Chris Finch (a typically dickish sales rep), Keith (an overweight drone who does little but stare at his computer), and Jennifer, the manager of the outfit who sees through David’s transparent bullshit.
