Is Your Office On TV?
After a long, hard day at the office, you go home, kick your shoes off, open a beer and turn on the television, so you can just unwind and relax. But wait, why does your favorite show look so familiar? It’s like déjà vu. It’s totally reminding you of work.
Hmmmmm. Could it be the actors on the show? Could it be the storyline? Maybe it’s the office. Yes, the offices on the television show that you’re watching. Check it out:
- “Mad Men”: This show’s got characters that seem to show an office that’s full of solemn, smart and frank team members. They work hard and do what it takes to get the job done. They’ve got an awesome office building and the boss has got an office with huge doors and a bar cart.
- “Friends”: So, if you’re stuck in a cubicle, with a delightfully messy desk, you have frequent nap intervals and neither you, nor your friends have any idea what you do for a living, then your office is much like the one on the TV show “Friends”.
- “The Office”: The office space isn’t really much to look at, but you’ve got to deal with it and the people who share it with you. Oh, not forgetting your boss, who is funny, but “borderline offensive”.
- “Parenthood”: So in this case, you work with your family in a make-shift office/recording studio attachment. It isn’t the prettiest site.
- “30 Rock”: You’ve got a 5ft by 5ft office, but you don’t mind. Maybe your coworkers are a little crazy, but they’re hard-working, they’re inventive, they’re hilarious and you love them.
- “”The Big Bang Theory”: Everything’s everywhere – ideas, whiteboards and papers – just, everywhere. Maybe you’re trying to make a difference, maybe you’re not. What’s the difference?
