The Office’ (US version) is my favorite sit-com of all time. It is also arguably the funniest. Set in the Scranton branch of paper making company Dunder Mifflin, the show centers around the daily interactions of the branch’s outlandish bunch. The manager, Michael Scott, is their boss and tries to impress the others and make them like him.
The show went on for nine seasons, 2005-13, and won five Emmys in total, including Oustanding Comedy Series n 2006. The show is a remake of the British television show of the same name which didn’t run for long. Here’s a list of the top 10 The Office episodes. And if you are wondering what’s the best season of The Office? Well, we will leave that up to you to decide.
10. The Fire (Season 2 Episode 4)
One of the primary reasons why this particular episode finds its way into the list is because of Dwight’s catchy song, “Ryan Started the Fire!”. Probably the best episode of the season, ‘The Fire’ started off with the temp Ryan’s job examination by Michael when fire played spoil-sport. The people in the office gather outside and majority indulge in games, while Michael and Ryan peel off to discuss business school, joined uninvited by Dwight. In the end, Dwight finds out the reason for the fire: Ryan, and makes a song out of it, much to Michael’s delight and his own as well. The e[isode is important in terms of setting up the relationship between many characters; Michael’s weird crush on Ryan, Pam and Jim’s feelings for each other, and Dwight’s patronization of Michael.
