On the eve of the first of September we begin the official countdown to The Office premiere. This is my favorite show of all time and a big hit in our household. With the writer's strike last year, I suffered immensely at having an abbreviated season. I am hoping for a long full season, with plenty of inappropriate comments, over the top conference room meetings, Dwight Dwight Dwight, and a little bit of Jam to make it all sweet.

I would have loved to have reviewed each episode from the day it premiered, but I didn't have a blog then. So I thought I would recap them all now and get some of you caught up in what should be a staple tv show in your household.

Also The Office Season 4 dvd comes out on September 2nd, a must buy for all the blooper and extra footage.

The Office follows the behaviors, situations and antics of the employees of Dunder Mifflin, a mid-level paper supply company in Scranton, PA. It is shot in documentary style and has no live audience. So you actually have to be intelligent and figure out for yourself what is funny.

The cast of characters:

Michael Scott (Steve Carell) is the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Scranton. Is an expert at saying the wrong things at the wrong time. On a constant mission to be everyone's friend and accidentally alienating them at the same time.

Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) is the Assistant To The Regional Manager. An uptight, over the top beet farmer, with a passion for Lord of The Rings and being a Lackawanna County volunteer sheriff.

Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) is the cute office sales rep, who loves to play pranks on Dwight and has a secret crush on the receptionist.

Pam Beesley (Jenna Fischer) is the aforementioned receptionist at Dunder Mifflin. She timid, lacks self-confidence, loves to draw and is engaged to warehouse employee Roy for over three years.

Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey) is a Dunder Mifflin accountant, who is rigid, very religious, a serious worker and having a secret relationship with Dwight Schrute.

Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez) is another DM accountant, who tolerates Michael's antics, and is in the closet from the rest of the office.

Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner) is the last of the three DM accountants, a goofy, child like man, who loves strippers, sports gambling and eating candy.

Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton) DM quality control/hippie/thief/shiester/man of some of the strangest comments on the planet. Doesn't remember anyone's name.

Meredith Palmer (Kate Flannery) is the office alcoholic. Known to flash at company parties and drink hand sanitizers for the alcohol content.

Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling) is dippy, airy, celebrity obsessed customer service rep. Constantly clinging to office boyfriend, Ryan.

Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) is the company temporary employee. A business college student who can't figure out how he got stuck at DM. The object of Michael Scott's affection.

Jan Levinson (Melora Hardin) is Michael's boss, and the deflector of many of Michael's inappropriate antics.

Roy Anderson (David Denman) is a warehouse employee who has been engaged to Pam Beesley for over three years, and lacking in attentiveness to her.

Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson) is the warehouse manager. A man who enjoys teaching Michael imaginary hood phrases.

Stanley Hudson (Leslie David Baker), as Michael once called him something like "A Sassy, loveable, older black gentleman". Lives for pretzel day and crossword puzzles.

Phyllis Lapin (Phyllis Smith) is the older female sales rep with a love for Bob Vance of Vance Refrigeration, Dunder Mifflin's business neighbor.

Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein) is the dreary and worn out human resources employee. The employee Michael loves to hate, as he constantly gets in the way of Michael's inappropriate ideas.
