Nine seasons of ‘The Office‘ is something that none can get tired of. With balanced serialization and mood-elevating humor, the mockumentary had its audience teary-eyed as it concluded. The show was a parody of the 2000s American office lives. The plot line was a major advantage of the show. Also, every episode will give you something to chuckle about.
