There's no better way to start 2021 than with a The Office binge-athon.

The beloved sitcom has finally arrived on NBCU's streaming service Peacock just in time to help you laugh off the chaotic year that was 2020. So who better to recommend the best Office episodes to watch than the stars of the show themselves?!

Oscar Nuñez told E! News of his favorite episode, "'Diversity Day' is pretty funny and I think right away it's like the second episode. It's right there at the beginning."

The Office creator Greg Daniels agrees. "I loved our second episode, 'Diversity Day.' I think that was one of the best ironically even though it was our second episode," Daniels shared. "And i also love very much the 'Business School' episode where Pam has an art show and Michael [Scott] is lecturing at business school. I think that one was just one of the best. I think that was season three."

The Office Cast: Where Are They Now?

Kate Flannery added, "I really love 'The Injury' (season 2, episode 12) where Michael Scott burns his foot with the George Foreman grill because he likes to wake up to the smell of bacon so he's got it right by his bed. There's something about the way The Office works around his insanity...I just think it's so well constructed and so well executed."

Andy Buckley also picked "Diversity Day," adding, "Start with the first [episode] because then you'd be hooked. 'Business School' (season 3, episode 17) is one of my favorites. 'Dinner Party' (season 4, episode 13) is probably my all-time favorite but I don't know if you started with that without knowing any of the characters. The 'Valentine's Day' episode (season 2, episode 16) is a pretty good one."

Every TV Show on Peacock

And for those Office fans who've already seen every episode at least a dozen times, there's even some brand new season three bonus footage on Peacock right now!

"We just finished looking through all the dailies and coming up with never-before-seen stuff that we dug out of original shots," Daniels dished. "So 'Business School' now has a lot of extra improvs from Steve Carell as he's lecturing all the students in Ryan's class."

Prison Mike

"The worst thing about prison was the Dementors. They were flying all over the place and they were scary and they sucked the soul out of your body and it hurt!"

Bacon-Related Injury

Warning: do not attempt to make bacon in the morning if you do not have a butler!

"Most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon on my grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up I plug in the grill and I go back to sleep again," Michael explained of his grill-related foot injury. "Today I got up, I stepped onto the grill and it clamped down on my foot. That's it. I don't see what's so hard to believe."

Little Kid Lover

What better way to let women on an online dating site know how serious you are about wanting kids someday than with that username? 

CPR Sing-A-Long

When it doubt, do chest compressions to the beat of the Bee Gee's "Stayin Alive," OK? 

Date Mike

"Hi, I'm Date Mike. Nice to meet me. How do you like your eggs in the morning?" 

Every Michael vs. Toby Moment

"If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden and Toby, I would shoot Toby twice."


"This is going to hurt like a motherf--ker." Have truer words ever been spoken than when Michael realized just how hard leaving Dundler Mifflin was going to be for him after his team sang this to him? 

"Lazy Scranton"

"Lazy Scranton the Electric City, they call it that 'cause of the electricity." 

Boss of the Bride

In what was supposed to be the highlight of Phyllis' wedding, Michael called "bulls--t" when her father was able to get up from his wheelchair to finish walking her down the aisle. 

"I can't believe I pushed that guy's lazy ass around all day until he was ready to stand up and steal the show," Michael said.


We dare you not to get emotional over Michael leading a flash mob dance at Jim and Pam's wedding!

Safety Training Gone Wrong

"Dwight, you ignorant slut."
