Inside The Office An analysis ofthe 6th season s introduction Throughout its 6 season history The Office the American version has kept its original intro relatively intact There have been changes of course but the intro has remained fast paced displaying multiple characters instead ofjust the protagonist Michael Scott The Office is a comedy that deals with a paper company regional manager Michael Scott and his relationship with his employees Michael s obliqueness and ignorance of social customs when associating with his employees around the office are the basis of the show s comedic angle The Office s intro encompasses the comedic tone and the mixture of personalities that clash and bond in what would seem to be a normal mid sized company The first thing to be noted about the intro is that it usually follows about a minute long clip that precedes the episode The intro containing the credits does not usually introduce the episode but rather bridges the 1 minute clip and the rest of the episode The intro in the 6th season is a shortened and slightly altered version of the first few seasons The beginning of the intro displays Scranton the town in which the show is based as seen from what feels like a moving vehicle Scranton is displayed to be a regular medium sized American city The intro footages pass by quick until the viewer is led to Dunder Mifflin the fictional paper company in which the show takes place It s as if the audience is driving by car through Scranton to see what appears to be a normal company The intro then shows quick clips of the key members of the Dunder Mifflin Scranton Branch executing daily business routines such shredding paper answering phones and the boss talking to his employees However from the quick clips the audience can peer into the characters personalities Michael Scott s smile and laughter when talking to his employees suggest that he is not a strict boss but rather a funny and friendly one Even though Dwight Schrute is just shredding papers in his appearance the audience can tell that he is a strange man from his awkward attire and his serious expression Jim is switching phones in his appearance suggesting he is a character who is always doing something Pam appears bored in her appearance doing busy work suggesting her displeasure with her job Ryan is seen answering a phone and wearing a suit which only he and Michael do in the intro suggesting his high position or his aspirations and high sense of self worth The quick shots of the characters also drive the fact that the show focuses on everyone not just Michael The show demonstrates that it is a melting pot of personalities and attitudes that contribute to the entire comedic power of the show In addition to the quick shots the folksy music with pounding baseline demonstrates that Dunder Mifflin has a lot more underneath the skin than meets the eye The music illustrates that the show is fast paced and exciting while set in Americana The music gives the audience a feeling of excitement and anticipation in preparation for the actual episode
