One of the top 10 episodes of The Office
3 August 2016 | by lonnqvistrobertSee all my reviews

This episode is probably one of the best episodes ever. The episode contains so much of what makes The Office, the characters really shine out their individual personality in extremely funny ways - and the scenes are filled with creativity. This episode has 4-5 scenes that pretty much sums up what the Office is all about, mostly regarding Michael and Dwight. So funny! The episode starts with 2 absolute legendary scenes, when Dwight first of all creates a fire drill. One of the most hilarious minutes on Office history.

Then! If possible even more hilarious, when all the group has to train for CPR. The scene is so typical for the whole atmosphere in The Office, and the funny perks of many of the characters really shines. It is so funny that the group cannot concentrate on one task, very typical for this group! And that Andy starts singing from nowhere, Michael is just plain stupid, and Dwight has no sense and the scene where he is imitating Hannibal is extreme.

THe following roast is harsh, and also in a way is a summary of what makes Michael so funny.

Recommend this episode!
