Where would Dunder Mifflin be without Michael Scott? Well, possibly in a much better position than the owners might want to consider at times, but that's entirely besides the point. That company wouldn't even be a flicker on anyone's radar without its most famous former employee.
Michael Scott was, of course, born out of David Brent, the lead in the UK version of the Office co-created and played by Ricky Gervais. He was, however, infinitely more charismatic than Brent, funnier too and less of a victim as the seasons went on. Yes, he was still invariably defined by tragedies and mishaps of his own making, but Scott was a way more redeemable character and one we loved so much that he never over-stayed his welcome.
But how well do you really know Scranton's most famous son? Do you know how many siblings he has? How many girlfriends we saw during his time on the show? What his greatest fears and dreams are? Well, of course you do, but I bet you don't know all of THESE questions...
