One of the best episodes of the entire series.
17 February 2011 | by lmaocarrotsSee all my reviews

This episode of "The Office" had a much different style to it. It still kept the documentary feel perfectly, but it was slightly more obvious comedy. With that said, it is probably the most I've laughed at any episode of "The Office" (And I've seen them all). The in show-movie "Threat Level Midnight" was hilariously done, and was even funnier then I expected it to be based on the screenplay episode. People will still complain about this episode, because people always complain about every episode of the new season, but I laughed throughout and it had nice (short-term) nostalgia to the old episode. Every character's character in the movie is hilarious and Toby's role in the movie is classic. If your a fan of "The Office" and have been waiting for THE great episode of the season well here it is.
