Welcome to The Office, a place of petty rivalry, bad flirting, and easily-bruised egos. Filmed in documentary-style, this sharply observed and highly acclaimed comedy exposes the excruciating truth about the world of nine-to-five.
Set in a paper supply merchants near London, season one of The Office introduces smug, lower middle-manager David Brent who attempts to run an office while desperately craving the affection of his staff. His team consists of an army-obsessed territorial yes-man, Gareth Keenan (Mackenzie Crook of Pirates of the Caribbean). A self-appointed \'team leader,\' Gareth is constantly bickering with witty under-achiever Tim (Martin Freeman of Love Actually), an apathetic sales rep who breaks up the monotony of his day pining after the sweet and long-suffering receptionist, Dawn (Lucy Davis of Pride and Prejudice).
