At The A.V. Club, I write about “The Dundies,” which takes the characters out of the office but not The Office out of the characters.

I couldn’t fit this tidbit into my Watch This word count, but “The Dundies” commentary reveals that this episode was originally conceived as a possible pilot for the U.S. version of The Office, which explains why it works so well as a season two premiere, giving an overview of the characters and dynamics for the show’s new viewers even as it takes them outside of their usual setting.
