"Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica." Welcome to the world of Dunder Mifflin, where life is stationary!
In 2005, NBC introduced you to the world of Dunder Mifflin, but what you may not know is that the history of this paper company didn't begin in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
It began in at the Wernham Hogg paper company in Slough, England! Originally written by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, they adapted their UK sitcom for a United States audience. They traded in David Brent for Michael Scott, Tim Canterbury for Jim Halpert, Gareth Keenan for Dwight Schrute, and Dawn Tinsley for Pam Beesley.
With nine seasons and over 200 episodes, "The Office" gave you an endless supply of jokes, laughs, and memories, but how well do you remember the happenings of Michael Scott and his employees?
