With so many competition/game shows out there these days, comparisons are inevitable. Some viewers might feel like The Singing Office falls pretty low on the scale simply because the talent level is uneven at best. But the show actually seems more positive than some of its fellow talent-competition brethren, and it's oddly charming in its own way. It helps that the participants aren't in it for fame and fortune -- the grand prize is $50,000, shared among the five winning team members -- so it's more about having fun and letting loose.

The other thing that's really good about the show is the singers' very ordinariness. Some are definitely talented, but these folks aren't buffed-out beauties -- nor are all of them great singers. But none of that stops them from trying, and that's really the lesson in the whole exercise. Too often folks get intimidated because they don't sound or look like professionals, robbing themselves of the joy of singing and dancing for the sheer joy of it. Maybe shows like this can get ordinary folks out there singing on their own again.
