The Office (U.S.) premiered on NBC in 2005 and aired until 2013. It was adapted from a BBC series of the same name. The series ran for nine seasons and went on to win four Primetime Emmy Awards, including the award for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2006.
The show tells the tale of a paper sales company in the town of Scranton, Pennsylvania. A paper supply company sounds like it would be the most boring place in the world, but this office is full of zany characters that keep it interesting, played by stars like Steve Carrell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, B. J. Novak, Ed Helms, Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling, Ellie Kemper, and Amy Ryan.
While there are many memorable characters and relationships in the series, none of them quite compare to the relationship between Jim Halpert and Dwight K. Schrute. The two salesmen are desk mates, sworn enemies, and sometimes best friends. Everything Dwight does annoys Jim, and Jim spends all day creating ridiculous pranks to get back at him.
