    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?

@delor b it wasn't racist??? The hell are you on about. Nothing about the show was racist. They made race related jokes because micheal is IGNORANT not racist. Learn the difference between ignorance and racism. Not being able to see that difference makes the word racist start to loose meaning and seem to people like a cheap copout.

Fixed. The original was racist. Hard to watch and root for a character who doesn't understand why he can't use a racial slur. Few people wanted to spend 30 minutes (with commercials) with that guy. And the original Michael would never have gotten Holly, let alone come up with a killer proposal.

@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!

For the most part I think it was a good decision to change Michael Scott, but there are few problems. Michael Scott got away with everything he did in this show because "hE iS gOoD guY". He was dick to pretty much everyone in this show even after his change, he was a bad manager even after they made him good salesman. They even rewarded him at the end by giving him everything he wanted (appreciation and real family). On the other hand David Brent ,even doe he had his redemption, suffered from consequences of his actions (humiliation, discharge). It's just a better story action-consequence-redemption. While US version has only action-reward.

As a British person, I found the UK Office waaayy too cringe, to the point where it was just too awkward to watch despite being only 12 episodes. The US Office was much much better during the Michael Scott era. There was the right amount of cringe and FFS moments as well as pleasant and hilarious moments. Michael Scott will always be my favourite character from the show as he grew more likeable and tolerable within each episode all the way up to his last appearance. Every other character just became too annoying after Michael left since they all seemed to have lost the ability to stand up for what they believed in, which was the opposite when Michael was the branch manager in my opinion. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the US Office and am glad it didn't get cancelled!

I actually started watching the office in it's second season on accident when I watched on Netflix and clicked the wrong episode (S2E1). It became my favorite show. I finally realized my issue after I finished the show, so I went back and watched the first one. Absolutely hated it. I can probably say if I had started on the first season I wouldn't have found my favorite show

I did enjoy a lot of the changes they made to Michael, and he has a lot of great moments when he's not at the office. But my aha moment is the one when the kids knock on his door and he starts handing out candy to them, kidding with them a bit. Its a simple, quiet moment that instantly hooked me on Michael Scott.

I'm from the UK. The UK Office is overrated, the US version is a better show and was best once it distanced itself from the original. Although it eventually jumped the shark like most American shows do.

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.

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 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.

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".
