The U.S. version of The Office has experienced something of a second life nearly six years after the hit TV series wrapped up. Thanks to Netflix and syndication, the show has amassed a new following that never saw an episode during its nine-season run, while maintaining a loyal fan base that chooses to revisit their favorite episodes and take a trip down memory lane.
On Wednesday, Jenna Fischer, who played Pam Beesly, managed to bring these two parties together by re-sharing an old video blog she made featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the 2006 episode “Booze Cruise” from Season 2.
OMG. I just found this Behind the Scenes video I shot from the Booze Cruise episode of The Office. Sorry for the poor film quality. But man, this took me back!https://t.co/mUZIbqs9gx

From the first few seconds where Fischer explains the purpose of her vlog, it’s hard to ignore just how poor the video quality was over a decade ago. The first few minutes of the 8-minute-long video are spent getting to know the many, many, many people who worked behind-the-scenes, and helped make the show special.
Similar to the “Booze Cruise” episode, the cast spends a few nights filming on an actual boat where their downtime is spent sleeping, keeping busy with nonsensical banter and games, and in the case of David Denman and B.J. Novak, who played Roy and Ryan, respectively, battling sea sickness.
