Did You Know?


When Joss Whedon found out the script for the episode involved a bat and a joke about Jim turning into a vampire, he was initially surprised by the idea and assumed the writing staff was playing a joke on him. But they insisted that his directing this particular episode was completely random. See more »


When Kevin opens up the door for the bat to fly into the break room and declares himself a "hero," a ceiling panel opens up (presumably for the bat to fly into). See more »


Dwight Schrute: I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

Epic Burst out
5 November 2020 | by samratsingraurSee all my reviews

Everything about this episode was so up to the mark. Michael's buisness presention to the class cracked me up. Seriously everything he did there and every word he said, was too damn hilarious including that chocolate example and tearing up the book. On the other hand Dwight chasing the bat, trying to execute it and Jim pranking him by getting him to believe that he actually became a vampire definitely stole the show. And finally the sudden appearance of Michael at Pam's art gallery and boosting her up by praising her art showed how much he cared about Pam. That scene was a tearjerker.
