Religion on ‘The Office’ — a Quiz

posted by Nell Minow

How well do you know the characters on “The Office?” Try our Idol Chatter quiz about religion on the hit series about paper company Dunder Mifflin. Like most American workplaces, this one includes employees with an assortment of views about religion and the quiz is not just a lot of fun but a thoughtful reminder of how easy it is to be carelessly inconsiderate of others’ beliefs and how much we can draw from a broader understanding of faiths and traditions.

    Really, Don? Why? I like the way that the character’s views on their own and each other’s religions occasionally are reflected in the way they behave. I don’t find it at all intrusive. Why should religion or any other element of the lives of the characters be left out of the story?

When the Game Stands Tall
This dreary assemblage of every possible sports cliché has one thing in common with the game it portrays. Every time it seems to be going somewhere, it stops. More frustratingly, it wastes the opportunity to tell a good story by trying to squeeze in too many great ones. There are too many crises
