Trivia

The "Threat Level Midnight" idea was introduced in the Season 2 episode "The Client", where the office discovers Michael Scott's screenplay in his desk while he's out on an important sales call, and then stages a reading of it in his absence. Paul Lieberstein wrote "The Client" and he and the other writers, and Carell in particular, wanted to return to the film idea and present it inside of a regular episode (an early plan to simply show the uninterrupted film as a special episode was nixed). When Carell's time on the show was near the end, the idea was brought up and Lieberstein assigned it to BJ Novak to write. See more »

One of the best episodes of the entire series.
17 February 2011 | by (United States) – See 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.
