My Favorite "Office" openers

With the Season 7 finale of The Office airing tonight, I wanted to share some of my favorite cold openers (scenes before the title credits) from The Office.

Season 6
The "Parkour" Opener
This was shown on the Season 6 premiere. "Parkour, parkour!"

Season 5
The "Cheese Puffs" Opener
This was during the Michael Scott Paper Company story arc of Season 5. I still can't imagine how many takes it took them to do this. Especially the trick at the 32-second mark!

Season 3
"Future Dwight"

Season 3

Honorable mention:
The Super Bowl-episode (Season 5) opener of "Stress Relief" where the entire Dunder-Mifflin staff is trapped, and panic when they think they're surrounded by a raging fire that's "shooting at them." I actually wanted to include this one in the list, but I couldn't find it on YouTube and didn't feel like searching too hard for it elsewhere on the net.

I know there are other great openers than the ones I mentioned. Which are your favorites?

  1. I wish there was a "like" button. There's so much meaning in, a click of a like. Or something. Anyway, Looks like 24 and The Office are my companions this summer! You're my inspiration!
