Editorial Reviews

The cast and crew of The Office discuss the writing process, improvisation, and the "pantheon of doofuses." This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors The Office, an American comedy series in the format of a faux documentary, focusing on the life of Dunder Mifflin paper company middle manager Michael Scott and the people in his office. Pat Mitchell (president and CEO, The Paley Center for Media) welcomes the audience and introduces Cynthia Littleton (editor, The Hollywood Reporter), who moderates the following panelists: executive producer/writer/director Greg Daniels; executive producer Ben Silverman; writer/co-executive producer Michael Schur; director of photography Randall Einhorn; writer Jennifer Celotta; writer/supervising producer B.J. Novak (who also plays the role of Ryan Howard); and writer/co-executive producer Paul Lieberstein (who also plays the role of Toby Flenderson). as well as cast members Steve Carell (Michael Scott), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly), Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), Craig Robinson (Darryl Philbin), Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton), Phyllis Smith (Phyllis Lapin), Oscar Nunez (Oscar Martinez), Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone), Ed Helms (Andy Bernard), Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin), Melora Hardin (Jan Levenson), David Denman (Roy Anderson), Leslie David Baker (Stanley Hudson), Rashida Jones (Karen Filippelli), Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer), and Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor).

The panelists answer questions about the writing process, how much of the show is improvised, the show's writers becoming actors, Michael Scott's place in the "pantheon of doofuses," how the cast members get along, and whether the show's "documentary" will ever be shown to the public. The evening ends with executive producer Daniels turning the tables on the audience with some trivia questions from the show.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

It would have been more professional of the person interviewing the cast and crew of The Office to have talked less and let the actors talk more. The interview was painful to watch because the person who was interviewing did not involve everyone on stage. This is a great short to watch if you want to see how NOT to interview a whole cast and crew and demonstrate the lack of professionalism.

This thing was slow, boring, and disorganized. With a cast of upstarts and comedic geniuses on stage, if you cannot coax any laughs or fun out of the event, you NEED to quit your job as moderator and contemplate living in underground tunnels.

I cannot believe how stupid and pointless and lackluster all of the questions were. In fact, the moderator did not seem to be listening to what was said because she asked questions answered already in conversation. No one received equal time or opportunity. No funny quips were followed up on. When antics started, they were quashed by dull questions.

The moderator was a sweet girl, but she was clueless. Like an uber-fan put on the spot. No charisma, no experience, no idea what to do with herself. An event of monumental potential like THIS needed a host with comedic background, good timing, and intelligence.

This was a waste of time.

I LOVE The Office! I did not, however, love this program. The moderator took soooo long on the introductions that I could not watch much of the interviews. I can look up the past credits of the participants, what I really wanted was to hear them talk about making the show. The format frustrated me so much that I could not press on to see if that actually took place.

booooring.

If they'd pared down the number of people and hired a more palatable host, I could've possibly enjoyed it.

The interviewer is very ill prepared. There is a lot she could have done with such stellar stars as Rainn Wilson and Steve Carrel but it was a very awkward interview.

I love the actors in the panel but I was very put off by the interviewer. As long as you can look past that, there were some funny parts and I'm definitely glad I watched it. I did skip some of the introductions since there were a lot of people and they were kind of long. Also I really missed John Krasinski.

Not that bad actually, if you are or were a big fan of the Office this is a must see as the entire main cast and creators are present except for Krasinski. It also had it's funny moments for sure, but the issue with it is unfortunately that the interviewer was embarrassingly incompetent and unprepared. At times she strangely seemed to be in a manner of speaking lost in left field. Was she really nervous, or was she just completely uninterested, or maybe she had a nasty cold and had just downed a whole bottle of NyQuil before she went on stage? You be the judge.

I love this show, but WOW...this was boring. I think the biggest drawback was the fact that the host/moderator seemed not to be a fan or regular watcher of the show at all. She said right in the beginning that she was sent a bunch of videos to watch to prepare for this, but I didn't think that meant she'd never seen "The Office" before...until I heard her questions! The questions asked of the show's writers and cast just weren't questions that true fans of the show would care about. The host didn't seem particularly engaged and It seemed really disorganized, and completely lacking of energy and enthusiasm.
