The Office – Season Three


Picture: B     Sound: B     Extras: A     Episodes: B+



I know you have all been waiting for this for a long time.  THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!  The Office: Season Three comes to DVD in an all new hilarious 4 Disc set.  Season Three builds upon the already popular series that follows a group of misfit office employees of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in a mockumentary style of filming; employees that seem to do mostly everything but work.  Season Two having ended on a cliff hanger ending on what was to happen between certain characters; Season Three naturally picks up where Season Two left off.  In this season character development increases to an extent and is probably the most emotional season yet.  Comedy and humor still reign supreme throughout The Office, but the series is truly a character based venture.


The show is groundbreaking and hilarious, end of story.


Now for the technical features behind the cubicle.  The Office continues to be shot in digital High Definition and the transfer to DVD is amazingly presented in an Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78:1.  The image is good, but has remains to have some detail limits, the larger the screen you watch it on.  The sound has been greatly improved almost never having the previous quality issues the Dolby Digital 5.1 format demonstrated on Season Two.  Too bad this was not DTS.  The extras on this TV on DVD series are interesting, well presented, and even more plentiful than Season Two.  The overflowing extras include the following:


Deleted Scenes

Episode Commentaries

Excerpts from the 2006 NBC Primetime Preview Hosted by the Cast of The Office

Toby Wraparounds

Dwight Schrute Music Video

Joss Whedon Interview

Videos from The Office ‘Make your Own Promo’ Contest

Blooper Reel

Lazy Scranton Video

Excerpts from the 58th Annual Prime Time Emmy Awards

Kevin Cooks Stuff in the Office



All of these extras are not something to miss.  This reviewer enjoyed every single extra and everyone has a strong rewatchable quality; an overall excellent presentation.  The large degree of improv always shows through on this series and is especially apparent on the Blooper Reel, often presenting variants of many scenes.  As far as the other features, they are all quite innovative ideas that many other shows must attempt to live up to now.  Overall, the extras are just cheese wiz on the potato chip (you will get it if you watch the extras).


This whole series is worth buying from Season One through Three.  If you have yet to experience The Office you have been missing out.  A comedy that feels both real and unbelievable at the same time.  The series has a great cast, a great writing team, and an always has the fans in mind.
