The Office Gets Some Stress Relief After The Super Bowl

I can’t tell you who’s playing in this year’s Super Bowl (The Pittsburgh Penguins, maybe?) but I do know that we’re being treated to a rerun of The Office this Thursday night because the new episode is being aired after the Super Bowl on Sunday night. So that gives me and plenty of other Office fans who are just as unenthusiastic about football a reason to watch the game, other than for the commercials and the halftime show. We’ve got an episode synopsis and some video clips from the post-Super Bowl Office episode, titled “Stress Relief.”

Spoilers ahead!

From the episode synopsis and the video clips (below) it looks like this could be a classic episode:

“STRESSED OUT IN THE OFFICE--SPECIAL ONE HOUR POST SUPERBOWL EPISODE FEATURING GUEST STARS JACK BLACK (SCHOOL OF ROCK), JESSICA ALBA (FANTASTIC FOUR) AND CLORIS LEACHMAN (MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE)--After Dwight´s (Rainn Wilson) fire safety seminar goes awry, he must make amends to the stressed-out office. Michael (Golden Globe winner Steve Carell) tries a number of ways to get his employees to relax before discovering that he is the number one stressor at work. So that people won´t feel afraid of him, he insists on a no-holds-barred roast of himself. Also, while watching a pirated movie, Andy (Ed Helms) is convinced that Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) are film gurus.”
