When you look back at The Office episodes that best define Michael Scott, very few of them are from the first season. The best Michael Scott moments come in moments like CPR or fire drill and there's a reason for this. The office changed the character in big ways between the first and second season. This is a look at why the office changed the worlds best boss so much.

Did you like the original version of Michael Scott or the “fixed” one better?

@Sunset's Channel sigh. That's the entire point. It's supposed to make you uncomfortable. It became more goofy and over the top as time went on. More "american". The genre was supposed to be that awkward humor.

@Tacoma98 I started Parks and Rec as a way to recover after The Office and I was almost pissed that she was this copycat version of him+we got Karen ect. I looked it up and yup, P&R was originally supposed to be a spin off of The Office! (I ended up loving it ofc, Schur always deliver)

Fixed all the way. I HATED him in the first season, couldn't stand him at all, he physically made me cringe, I kept watching the office because of Jim and Pam and because everyone said it was so good so I got past 1st season... Didn't regret it!

Creed was the best. You always had to do a second take to realize what he's really saying/doing.

I think most people prefer the American office to the UK office. I understand both are doing something different but the American show has basically become a cultural icon in the US and really was a mainstay with a lot of American families while it was running. This is really more impactful culturally than the 12 episode run which was a bleak comedy about the pointlessness of modern work.

I liked every fucking episode of the Office... all this analysis bullshit doesnt mean shit to me, it's the best show and Michael is the funniest most original character to ever exist. It sucked to see him be replaced by Andy

David Brent isn't evil, just massively and grotesquely insecure. Loving someone like that is not a thing American audiences are used to.

It became way more over the top and goofy as time went on. I still love the show. But the first season was so much more intelligent and with the spirit of what the office is SUPPOSED to be. It's supposed to be grounded, awkward as hell humor. In the first season you always knew someone like those characters in real life. That's what made it so brilliant and funny. Real people. It's a lot like the premise of Seinfeld. Make it relatable to day to day situations. The show ended so far from its roots that the show was unrecognizable from how it started, and it's better source material. At least the orginal season and the orginal office was so so much better than the last 2 or 3 seasons. You seem to completely miss what the office was going for and what its source material was. You make these long ass videos repeating a lot of the same shit in different ways and dragging things on. It's like a freshman paper where you try to stretch your 200 word essay into a 1000 words. And your a bit pretentious to be honest.

I loved Michael and the show right off the bat in S1. They didn't need to change him for me. I liked the so called "dark" endings, which I never found bothersome in the least.

He was more like David Brent and the show was definitely more written to make you cringe like the British version. I was actually surprised how well they managed to replicate the British version given that it was a yank show.

I always find it interesting when I hear people say the original Office is better than the US one. Even as a British person, I really can’t stand the original. Perhaps it’s because I watched it quite a long time after it came out, or perhaps it’s my inherent dislike for Ricky Gervais, but there’s little to nothing I find interesting about the original Office or its characters. The US version on the other hand is one of my favourite shows of all time. I was pretty sure I’d hate it after season 1 but I ended up binging absolutely everything else in the space of 3 days and found myself crying at several points towards the end. My only complaint is the way they handled Andy, but that complaint has been done to death at this point.

Michael's balding hair look bothered me in the most OCD way possible. Something about the way they had it combed made it so off-putting to look at. Grateful they put a stop to that after the first season.

Micheal Scott was never a decent character. He’s terrible ( and so are several other character. Kevin and Stanley make me gag) I don’t know how a show full if so many awful characters could do so well.

I'm wondering how many people just skip the first season when they re-watch the show. First time I watched it, I stopped after season 1 and started again a couple of years later. Since then, I never re-watch that season again, while having watch the rest 4 times (even the latest season )

Being forced to follow an unsympathetic villain as the protagonist isn't done enough. Less escapism, more mimicry. And having a main character have literally nothing to live for, not in a redeeming way but like Michael in season 1, was nice. It gave me a place to say "See, other people share that trait." It's really disheartening to never see tv reflect "sometimes there isn't a solution and life simply shits on you, just keep moving forward till you can't because the only other choice is death".

While I watched every single episode with joy, I could never recommend this show over Parks and Rec, the 1st season of the office is just trash and will scare away people without "patience"

Not to be "that guy" The UK Office ran for 14 episodes. Seems you've omitted the 2 further special episodes after the end of season 2, where Brent is redeemed.

Don't say "not to be that guy" if you already plan on being "that guy". Just make your point and go. There's no need for the useless pretense.

To me, Micheal Scott was only loveable in his last few episodes and just throughout the show, he was mean and offensive even though one can argue that he did not mean it. I am sorry but there is no excuse for being a pathetic man child and assume you are the best and not seek any professional help to recover from deep rooted issues from childhood.

You should do the evolution of Ari Gold from Entourage. He was an absolute prick in season 1 and developed into a decent guy.

Everything you state here was exactly how I felt about Michael. My family and have watch the entire 9 seasons 3 times and I am looking forward to watching the series with my family again. My favorite characters were Creed, Jim, Pam, and Dwight.

"Booze Cruise" is where Michael wanted to inspire his employees the whole time and failed miserably until the end, where he wasn't trying to be the center of attention for once. He gave Jim life-changing advice: "BFD, engaged aint married...never, ever give up."

This was the same problem with the first season of parks and rec. Leslie was a joke first but since the second season she was the heart of the show.

I honestly can't stand the UK Office. Im not sure what it is, maybe it's too dry? I liked how over the top Michael Scott was in season 1 because everyone has had or has heard about a greasy boss like he was. He's obviously overcompensating for everything yet still has a big ego. It's perfect for his transition into being more likeable. I find in later episodes though that sometimes just for the sake of a laugh they just dumb his character down and his surrounding characters treat him worse than they did in season 1.

I remember thinking season one if I was a man in that work place, several times I would have hit Michael scott for the way that he speaks to women. And also Pam and Jim are picking on a retarded person , Dwight.

No be yourself isn't the answer. Because being himself in the first season is what made him unlikable. I don't know exactly what the moral is maybe it's that not everyone is categorically awful and that maybe everyone else shouldn't be so unrelentingly critical. I don't know but be yourself isn't the answer because sometimes yourself, or myself or whatever the plural, yourselves? Is not great and needs to improve a little bit even if it's 10% nicer or 10% whatever
