Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this sardonic British mockumentary skewers the corporate world, exposing the drudgery, tedium, and mindless pranks that make up daily life for so many office drones. Central character David Brent manages to inadvertently offend nearly everyone around him with his casual sexism, occasional racism, and nonstop pompous blather. Nearly the entire series takes place in the office, but there's plenty of talk about wild nights out drinking, plenty of swearing (including "s--t"), and a fair bit of flirting and sexual innuendo.
No nudity or sex, but lots of flirting, innuendo, and sexist comments, some bordering on sexual harassment.
Plenty of choice terms, including "s--t," "twat," "c--k," and "wanker." Some racist phrases, as well.
The corporate world seems dreary and tedious, filled with self-serving coworkers who try to kill time by planning practical jokes and making fun of each other.
