Unique, surprising, hilarious, and conflicting.

That is how the second season of “The Office” can be summarized, which is why you should watch it.

“The Office” is unique because events occur that are rare to occur in real life. For example, in episode 19, Michael, the manager of the Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch, takes the office employees ice skating for his birthday, during a workday.

“The Office” also examples uniqueness in episode three when Jim and Pam absurdly organize an office Olympics. This is hilarious because the employees are competing when they’re supposed to be working.

Alex Gombita, a fan of “The Office” said, “My favorite part from “The Office” was when Michael and Dwight were away, and the office employees decided to organize an office Olympics.”

Actors John Krasinski (Jim Halpert), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly), Steve Carell (Michael Scott), and Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute) all have very similar personalities as their characters. This allows viewers to connect with certain characters on the show. This also makes the show very humorous.

Even though all of the actors are great, the top two actors, Steve Carell (Michael Scott) and Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), make the show especially humorous. These top two actors work together to create characters that come up with the most hilarious and dangerous ideas. An example is when Michael hosts an illegal casino night in episode 22 in which he invites two dates, causing Michael to reach out for Dwight’s help to keep the two dates away from each other.

Gombita also explained who his favorite character is in season two. He said, “Michael Scott because his quotes have been applied to so many memes.”
Gombita and many others enjoy memes, and Michael Scott’s humor provides for some hilarious memes.

Directors Michael Spiller, Rodman Flender, Jeffrey Blitz, Paul Lieberstein, Ken Kwapis, and Paul Feig lead scenes in a way that makes the audience laugh. An example could be the filming of Brian Baumgartner, who plays Kevin Malone. There are long and awkward silences when Kevin Malone is being filmed, which is very comedic.

The second season of “The Office” is also surprising because events occur that the audience doesn’t expect. This is evidenced in episode four when there is an office fire. Nobody knows how it was started until one of Michael’s close friends is exposed for starting the fire.

Another example of surprising events occurred in episode six when Dwight and Michael fight at Dwight’s dojo due to a conflict back at the office. This is surprising because Dwight and Michael are inseparable because Dwight is assistant to the regional manager, and Michael is the regional manager. They are also great friends, so the audience doesn’t expect these two to try to injure each other.

Finally, there is conflict when there are disagreements in and outside of the office. There is conflict in episode six when Pam gets annoyed because Jim gets too friendly with her.

Also, in episode nine there is conflict when the office employees become irritated because Michael starts monitoring their emails.

“The Office” can be compared to the CBS show “The Big Bang Theory.” These two shows are very similar due to to the awkward actions of some of the characters. Also, both shows example characters saying things that would be completely inappropriate to say in real-life, but this is what makes these two shows comical.

Although “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Office” are very similar, they are very different because of the intelligence of some of the characters. Some of the characters in “The Office” don’t come up with the brightest ideas, where the characters in “The Big Bang Theory” are physicists with brilliant ideas.

“The Big Bang Theory” and “The Office” are also different because “The Office” doesn’t have the fake audience laughter that “The Big Bang Theory” has. The fake laughter makes “The Big Bang Theory” repetitive and annoying in some occasions, where “The Office” never gets repetitive and annoying.

However, “The Office” may disappoint some viewers. The reason for this is because some people may not like the mature comedy that the show entails. Therefore, the entertaining second season of “The Office” gets a rating of 4 out of 5 Schrute beets.
