The Best of Michael Scott

I’m going to try something funny and light today! I had a great idea.

As most of you know, I am an avid TV watcher and Netflix binger. I have lots of television faves, and I thought I’d start a “The Best Of” type of post where I list the best or my favourite moments of a TV or Movie, or a specific character/episode. Sound cool? Cool.

Today I’m starting off with a good’n. It’s from my favourite show of all time. The one I’ve seen over 20 times. It’s The Best of Michael Gary Scott from The Office. Sit back and enjoy the goofy list.

1.When Michael tries to describe a fine wine

Yes, Michael. Yes. I think that is exactly the word you were looking for.


2.When Michael bought a fur coat

The Burlington Coat Factory Tragedy of Scranton, Pennsylvania.


3.When all Michael wanted was to order a cool Italian meal to intimidate a so-called “mafia crime lord”

Nothing says intimidating like ordering the “gabba-gool.”


4.When Michael had no idea where he was going with his conversation

It’s a good thing Michael took weekly improv classes or else this would have been an utter disaster.


5.When Michael tried to show off his trick shots

So close, yet so far…


6.When Michael found an alternate way to handle his stress

This is probably the most relatable thing Michael has ever done. I mean, I haven’t actually jumped on to a freight train to run away from stress, but, like, I think about doing it….


7.When Michael perfectly expressed how it feels to be at work every single day and not want to work at all

Nothing says carbing up like eating a giant plate of creamy, fettuccini alfredo.


12.When Michael showed everyone how to remain calm during an emergency
