  1. Holy awesome! I swear… they are the best at making reruns an absolute necessity to watch! I’m excited! Toby!love

  2. The cream of the crop…i love ALL those episodes. And my favorite one of all time – Diversity Day

  3. I’m not usually a big fan of checking out reruns unless I have nothing else to do, but I will probably end up watching this because Toby is my favorite character. Cue the heavy sighing!

  4. What, no Conflict Resolution? That’s my all-time favorite episode and the ultimate HR nightmare.

    Still, cool idea.

  5. I love how they love us. And I love that they understand that there is no such thing as enough of Toby Flenderson.

  6. im soooo stoked for this!!!! hey, did anyone else notice that they mentioned everyone in the press release, including ed helms, but not rashida jones? hmm

  7. kim, i think its bc they all including ed helms (who just became one starting the new year) are regulars. I def dont see Karen leaving before the end of the season

  8. Yayer!! This is great news!! Diversity Day is the episode that got me hooked on The Office so I have to agree with GMMR, favorite of all time (although The Injury and Casino Night are very close second). And this is hosted by Toby Flenderson? Double Yayer!

  9. Great idea for an Office theme night. Wonder if it was inspired by a real life HR specialist’s blog, “that’s what she said”, in which she analyses the HR issues in each episode and how much the real-world ligitation would cost the company.

  10. You mean we have to watch “Andy Barker, PI” in order to get all the Office stuff? Bummer!

  11. Just like Kath, all of my FAV episodes and we get to see Toby. It will definitely be a not miss night!

  12. “Conflict Resolution” should be in there! One of the best, especially for Toby.

    Best moment: when Michael wrestles the files from Toby and tells the camera “Had to use ‘win-lose’ there. It wasn’t pretty.”

  13. Well, for those of you who are mad they stuck Andy Barker in there, take some consolation that Tony Hale, of the greatest TV show of all-time, the sadly cancled Arrested Developement, has a role in that show. And then go back to the Office. :-D

  14. I wish the press release said: “Creed Bratton as Creed Bratton.”

    I know, I know, simple pleasures…

  15. what a show. in the last month i’ve changed my tivo season pass settings from “First run only” to “Repeats & first run” to, today, “All (with duplicates)”

  16. Toby? Is that the dude with the sad eyes? I like that guy.

    On another note, Conflict Resolution is one of my favorite episodes as well, but the Injury is too…so…win-win-win.

    And Andy Barker, PI can’t be all bad; I remember liking Andy Richter Controls The Universe before it was cancelled, and he was great on Conan.

  17. What is this Andy barker P.I. nonsense? A show within a show? I really don’t care for him. But Toby….yay for Toby!!! This really makes the hiatus much more bearable. *Thanks Thor for this blessing*

  18. I’m excited for this and the newpeats! yay! i love that greg daniels said that they were doing this to give back to the fans. The Office is not only the funniest and smartest show on TV, I sincerely believe that they have the coolest cast and crew of any show on TV these days, and it is so refreshing.

  19. They’re doing everything they can to keep us entertained while the Office is on a break. I won’t stop them. Let them think that we’ll abandon them because of six weeks of Officelessness. We’ll get more goodies that way.

  20. You have to love NBC and the producers for finding creative ways to fill the hiatus, with the “newpeats” and the marathon. And its nice to see Toby getting the spotlight.

  21. Yay! What an awesome way to spend my birthday! :D Even though I would have rather had a new episode :(

  22. Ah, Toby-love is alive and well at NBC! This is going to be a great night for a Toby drinking game ;) Hey, I’m in college, what can I say?

  23. Thanks phyllis*farm! Good to see another AD fan out there. I think there are a lot of us, who, abandoned and desolate, turned to The Office for support. And discovered the best show currently on television.

  24. I agree with Steamtown Buff. I’d rather see Conflict Resolution than yet another airing of Gay Witch Hunt. But either way, what a brilliant idea for repeats! And Andy Barker is really funny (I didn’t want to like it except that it had Buster), so win win win!

  25. Those NBC folks are pretty clever. Since I have all the episodes in various forms of media, I do not usually watch airings of repeats…but now I must watch both this Thursday and next for fear of missing “extra footage” and even better “extra Toby”.

  26. You what I just thought…if there’s a character from the show hosting the show, does that mean that the documentary is airing in the Office Universe??? Not that it really matters; I’m just intrigued.

  27. Is this going to be hosted by Toby, the character on The Office…or is it going to be hosted by Paul, the writer for the show?

  28. Thank God I thought I wouldn’t be able to see anyoffice on t.v. untill April 5th!!! I have the dvds but it’s just not the same and I have no idea why.

  29. Gay witch hunt WAS NOT THAT GOOD! I wish they would stop re-playing it! Conflict Resolution would have been the best choice. It still fits with the disastrous human-resource nightmare scheme.

  30. They should just get rid of Andy Richter PI in the middle & put Conflict Resolution in its place cuz I love it & Gay Witch Hunt. Oscar & Michael kissing…brilliant!!!
