Given the chance to lure in 20 million extra viewers after the Super Bowl, it's no surprise that The Office went slapstick for the first five minutes last night, with Dwight simulating a fire and sparking mass hysteria at Dunder-Mifflin. And it was nothing short of hilarious.
A series of ups and downs followed, and this overhyped Office event may have dragged on a bit too long. But overall, a disgruntled Stanley stole the show and the branch's roast of Michael Scott helped make for probably the best episode of Season Five so far.
