The Office (2001)

Show generally

Corrected entry: At the start of the Christmas specials, writing comes up to say that the first series was filmed in Jan 2001. But in episode 6, Keith says "It's the end of the financial year!" which would indicate some time in late March. As each episode only follows a single day, these days would need to be spaced quite far apart for this to work, which makes no sense.

Correction: When the financial year starts and finishes is up to the individual company; there's no legally mandated year end. To end in July would be somewhat surprising; few companies would choose to start their new financial year at a point when many employees would be going on holiday. Finishing in January or February would not be at all unusual.

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.
