The Offi ce

Ten, 8.00pm

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

It’s not of­ten that a lo­calised ver­sion of a pop­u­lar and infl uen­tial se­ries not only suc­ceeds, but out­grows the confi nes of the orig­i­nal and takes on a life of its own. The Amer­i­can in­car­na­tion of The Offi ce has done just that. Beginning as purely a re­cast take on Ricky Ger­vais and Stephen Mer­chant’s Bri­tish mas­ter­work, the Steve Carell-fronted US ver­sion has out­lasted the orig­i­nal, and this week de­buted its fifth sea­son – episodes are also screen­ing at 8pm on Tues­days. In this in­stal­ment, the em­ploy­ees of the Scran­ton branch of Dun­der Mif­flin – Michael Scott ( Carell, above) in­cluded – are all try­ing to ad­here to strict di­ets.
