NBC's The Office is arguably one of the best comedies to ever grace our television screens. Seriously, name a more iconic sitcom in the last twenty years. We'll wait.
Regardless if you're a die-hard fan or not, you can't deny the pop culture impact that the show has had since it premiered. Even though it's been off the air since 2013, it's still just as popular as it ever was. Which is why the recent headlines regarding the workspace single-cam have been quite polarizing.
