Many are calling this new show on Tolo TV the Afghan version of the hit western show, The Office.  The Office was a hit on both British TV and American TV.  The show follows the everyday life of the workers at the Ministry of Garbage and it is shot in what appears to be a single-camera setup. The characters address the camera directly, as if being interviewed - just like The Office. The show's main character, Dawlat, is a bumbling fool, but sympathetic, just like The Office's Michael Scott (American Version).
