everyday life in a paper company

“A good manager doesn’t fire people. He hires people and inspires people... people, Ryan. And people will never go out of business.”
— Michael Scott

The Americans finally got one up over the British when it comes to workplace comedies. This mockumentary was significantly better than its British counterpart that inspired it. Most of this can be put down to the cast of superior actors acting out better written characters.

Rarely do we find so many deep and complex characters in a half-hour comedy. The characters are very believable as well as very relatable. The daily activities and interactions with each other at their Scranton Dunder Mifflin office is quite entertaining.

The show managed to hold its own even after the main character of Michael Scott left the show. This show highlights the importance of relationships in one’s life, both in the office and at home. Job satisfaction and good work mates are worth more than a fat paycheck.
