NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

The Office is a show that aired on NBC.

Based on the hit British series of the same name, The Office provides a mockumentary view into the Dunder Mifflin paper supply company. Modeled after the characters from the original series, the central voice of the series is that of Jim Halpert, who wryly comments to the camera about his coworkers while quietly pining for Pam Beesly, the receptionist. A constant source of entertainment for Jim is Dwight Schrute, a salesman whose delusions of authority are matched only by his ego-fueled gullibility. However, the driving source of all office drama is from their boss Michael Scott. Michael blithely spouts offensive comments while candidly commenting to the documentary crew about his effectiveness as an office manager. This invariably leads Michael to a disastrous path riddled with ill-conceived and executed plans, uncomfortable silences, and a hostile work environment.
