The Office

The Office (2001)

1 corrected entry in Downsize

Downsize - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When David and Dawn are talking at the reception desk, you can see Gareth and Tim talking in the background. Yet a few shots later, Gareth is arriving at work for the first time carrying his suitcase and newspaper.

Correction: The show is supposed to be a documentary. The shot in which David explains that he has worked at Wernham Hogg for 8 years then introduces Dawn to the crew/ audience, would probably be used before a shot introducing two new characters the audience hadn't 'met' yet. This can be put down to an editorial decision by the (fictional) documentary makers, not the 'real' editors.

Mistakes

Lee and Dawn overstay their tourist visa in the US, then fly back to the UK for the Office Christmas party. They then get into a taxi to go out to the airport in order to return to the US. They're kidding themselves. As I know (to my cost) when you overstay a tourist visa, the US Immigration Service finds out when you check in at the airport on departure. They'll be refused reentry, and probably barred from entering the US for up to six years. (I got a three year ban.) Neither Lee nor Dawn could possibly be unaware of this nor think they could beat the system as they would have been arrested when they checked in in Florida on departure (as I was), and they would have remained in small holding cells until the paperwork banning their return had been processed and their passports stamped 'Invalid for U.S. Entry', as mine was. (All this takes about seventy two hours, so they'd have missed the Christmas party anyway.) The mistake is NOT that they were able to leave the USA - that is explained (it's still not possible, but in the context of the show and the suspension of disbelief we are meant to believe it) the mistake is that they are on the way back to the airport to return. That's absurd. They would have been under no illusions as to their banned status re reentry to the USA.
