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.

The American version of the office is funnier than the uk version as it has memes and gifs of the show plus nearly everything is funnier in America than the uk

So they changed Michael's effectiveness so him being a boss could be believable, but gradually made Kevin into an "accountant" who would likely be too dumb to graduate from high school.

I like season 1, it was unique looking now at all seasons, but it was propably good decission to abandon the style of original The Office UK

The show was gonna get canceled with original Michael Scott before writers could say season 3. Season 2 Michael Scott and onwards is the Michael Scott we talk about and constantly meme to this day. Season 1 Michael Scott is forgettable.

Season 2's The Client was one of my favorite moments. That "aha" look that lights up on Jan's face... was like a beacon of hope for Michael's character.

so it was the shirt collar that made him look fatter? and not the extra fat that was on his face and body?

I prefer the fixed one. The original one annoyed me and kept me from getting in to the office for a long time.

Personally, I like the first season Michael, I like the dark humor he was much funnier, but I also like the new Michael And Kevin, and I love this show so much that I've watched 9 times. I watch at least one episode every day!

I liked the original office, and liked the first season of the American one because of how simmilar it was, after that, I hated it, more and more.

I never understood any of these critical reviews...... I watch the show and I never think anything other than it's a show.....there are parts of the show wher me I felt Micheal had to be a dick, in other episodes he had to be more human. But you can't take away the funny Michael.

I wanted to finish the entire series because I’ve never really watched it before, I couldn’t make it past the first season. It just made me sad.

See the thing is, I still hated Michael. He had his moments but he was still a selfish jackass that didn't realize how sexist, racist, and homophobic he actually was. It definitely led to good comedy, but that doesn't mean I like the character.

Mike's "Momentary Competence" is more like a duality. 70% of the time mike is doing anything he is playing around and trying to keep it light-hearted. He has shown time and time again that he is fully capable of functioning as an adult and handling responsibility. But he also looks out for his people. In one of the later episodes, everyone is freaking out about the branch closing. He chooses to play a murder mystery game in order to distract everyone from the unpredictable outcome. Jim didn't realize it until later in the episode what he was trying to do. But in that brief moment he showed that he had the best interest of his workers in mind even if it cost production. Season after season after season 1 are littered with moments like these. Especially the moment where erin refers to him as a father like figure and he acknowledges that and tells her to "go to your room young lady" and prompting her to say "No, I won't go to my room". The spontaneity of these brief moments of clarity show the viewers that mike is absolutely capable and has the unique ability to read his workers. Albeit he goes about this with a kind of candor on par with a child's mind. He is without a doubt one of my favorite characters on the show because steve carell makes you believe that he truly and emphatically cares about these people AS michael scott. If you pay close attention in the moments where mike gets serious throughout the seasons. You'll notice a trend with his behavior. This begins when stanley embarrassed him and he pulls him to the side and states "I am your boss, You can not talk to me that way. You do not have to like me, but you NEED to respect me while you are here" That moment changes mike and stanley at the same time. Stanley actually becomes more fun loving after that moment and a little bit care free.

The fact is that the UK Office follows that same trend of being "10% nicer" to David Brent, though it isn't until the very end (the Christmas special). Tim is nice to David by offering to go out for a drink with him when everyone else in the office is snubbing him. The woman David gets set up with by the dating company is nice to him and listens genuinely to what he has to say--it helps that she hasn't seen the documentary herself, but still, she just listens to what David says without judgement, and responds kindly. This results in Brent being more confident to be himself, and like you put it in this video, "remove the toxicity from his life", when he finally tells off his rude, bully "friend" Chris. Both Michael and David's stories end in the same fashion, establishing that being kind to someone and treating them with respect can cause them to be more confident, kind and patient in return.

Actually, he really was balding and fatter in season 1 but then started making that celeb money and could afford hair transplant surgery and a personal trainer which led to his change in appearance.

Paul C after doing further research I believe you are correct. Lol seems like they just wanted to make him look that way in season 1 and then changed it. But the other explanation sounded funny to me.

Your statement is hardly believable when 40 year old virgin was filmed nearly side by side with season 1 of the office and carrel was lean in that movie. That was how he thin he looked in snl so you cant say it was cgi or makeup either

This makes sense because when I first watched the office I hated him. It took multiple tries to get through maybe 3 episodes.

I always thought the first season was him trying to create an image for the documentary team and after season 1 he gave up and went back to being himself. At least that's how it came across to me

I think another thing you probably didnt catch, is that michael in s1 was ordinary bad at his job yes but ordinary, or replaceable. S2 and on(and i do mean on. More specifically the rest of the show when michael left.) he was made irreplaceable as the boss. And the best example is the episode when michael goes camping on his own, jim takes charge and not only is he a bad substitute but on the most minimal task he fails which leads him to admit to michael “im sure glad your back” making michael the most irreplaceable bad boss in history

I liked the original Michael better, because the changed one didn't correspond to any personality type. The first was like "Yeah, I know that kind of boss!" whereas the second was full of unrealistic contradictions.

I look at season 1 Michael and just think "hmm, I dislike this despite not normally caring what people look like. They must have intended this." I was right I guess, plus I never did like the British office or "most" British comedy, though some British comedy completely destroys American comedy. Australian is best.

So they stopped having other characters hold him accountable for his toxicity so that it would be more relatable for Americans.

It's actually more complicated than that. For me, the biggest change was that they gave him redeeming qualities, mostly pertaining to his sincere love for his employees and his lifelong feelings of rejection, which made him willing to do anything (even stupid) things to get love/respect/approval. In season 1, they had no reason to empathize with him because he was just an unrepentant asshole. From season 2 onward, even at his worst, they/we all knew that he was a guy trying the wrong way to do the right thing. It doesn't make him a great person, but makes him human and relatable.
I never made it past the 2nd episode of he office. I wanted to like the show so badly, and yet it was just so bad. And the problem was definetly Michael. All the episodes of later season I love but I just couldn’t get past the 2nd episode. I’ll try and make it to the second season though.

I tried watching the office the other day on Amazon prime, and was actually quite put of by the first season, notably by Michael Scott. I find it so annoying I couldn't even understand how people could like that show. Should I just skip season one?

Definitely! I remember I started watching the show because my friends loved it so much. And I was very displeased by season 1. But I knew there's a reason why they love it so I kept watching, and boy was I pleased. It's an amazing show. Season 1 just did not work out.
