People Are Spending Billions Of Minutes Watching Reruns Of 'The Office' On Netflix During Self Quarantine Period
On 6th April 2020
No doubt The Office is a classic and with its high-quality jokes it can always beat other shows in terms of humor to stay at the top of the list. But who knew that during this period of quarantine and lockdown, the one show that people will binge watch most is the reruns of this series.
Since all of us are stuck in quarantine times so we are getting by almost everything and anything at home. While many people are spending time doing cooking at home, some are spending time with family and many are taking up on old hobbies to pass time. But there are many (like us) who are relying on good old favorite show The Office to get us by during this lockdown.
The Office is NBC's most loved sitcom by the public. It was on from 2005 to 2013 and is still available on a variety of streaming sites. This means, even though it has ended, it’s never really left the cultural zeitgeist.
Very few people know the fact that The Office is a remake of BBC series of the same name, which starred Ricky Gervais and premiered in 2001. It is one show that people actually love and is one of the most-watched series on Netflix and other streaming sites.
Apart from its cast, the show is based on high-quality content, which is one of the major reasons why it has always made it to the list of almost everyone's favorite shows.
Many funny scenes from the show are still a classic and the inside jokes never fail to strike a chord. The show went off-air in 2013 and since then fans had to rely on reruns to get their Dunder Mifflin fix.
With the unexpected quarantine, most of the world is literally just chilling at homes with their favorite series. It has recently been reported that during these times, The Office is the second most-watched show on Netflix with a staggering 1.23 billion minutes streamed over the week of March 16 alone.
The movie to beat this show to the top is Mark Whalberg’s Netflix original movie Spenser Confidential, being streamed for an impressive 1.25 billion minutes.
