It’s uncomfortable, deeply funny, and a tragic reminder that Steve Carell never won an Emmy for playing Michael Scott (“Sometimes I will just stand here and watch television for hours”). And now, 11 years after the episode first aired, it’s getting the scratch-and-sniff treatment.
On August 26 at 10 p.m. EST, COZI TV (NBC’s“national multicast network”) will show the season four episode “The Dinner Party” in Smell-A-Vision. “A special airing of a legendary episode of the classic series – enhanced with an actual scratch-and-sniff card,” the website reads. “Melora Hardin joins COZI TV as on-air host for the promotion and on-air presentation of the event. There’s no better choice, as she played Jan Levinson, the original host of ‘The Dinner Party,’ offering us her long-simmering Osso Buco and ‘Serenity By Jan’ candles.”
This is exciting news for anyone wondering what “James Bond Fire” smells like.
