The next installment in my bracket series is characters from The Office. This bracket was made by Twitter user @IsThisDavis, and features all the best characters from the show, to finally figure out, once and for all, who is the favorite character.
ROUND OF 32
Michael Scott vs. Nellie Bertram – Michael Scott — Nellie absolutely drove me crazy, and Michael (Steve Carell) will easily move on
Holly Flax vs. Oscar Martinez – Holly Flax — Holly was dorky, and the perfect match for Michael and her weirdness pushes past Oscar
Kelly Kapoor vs. Gabe Lewis – Kelly Kapoor — Mindy Kaling made a name for herself, and nothing will ever make the thin freak of Zach Woods likeable to me…
Angela Martin vs. Jo Bennett – Angela Martin — Kathy Bates was really good coming into this show in the middle and fitting right in, but Angela (Angela Kinsey) and her on again/off again relationship with Dwight is too much to overlook
Pam Beesly vs. Bob Vance – Pam Beesly — Bob Vance is such a minor character he stands no chance against the powerhouse of Pam (Jenna Fischer)
Erin Hannon vs. Phyllis Vance – Erin Hannon — Her (Ellie Kemper) character launched her into Unbreakable, and while Phyllis (Phyllis Smith) was great, I think the unfavorable matchup doesn’t help
Andy Bernard vs. Karen Filippelli – Andy Bernard — Karen’s (Rashida Jones) role ended too early, as she left for Parks & Rec, so the Nard Dog (Ed Helms) advances
Creed Bratton vs. Mose – Creed Bratton – Creed (Creed Bratton) is the most underrated character on the show, so Mose (Michael Schur) gets eliminated. Let’s take this moment though to acknowledge everything Schur did, creating The Office, Parks and Rec, The Good Place, and producing on the upcoming show Abby’s.
Dwight Schrute vs. Pete Miller – Dwight Schrute — Pete (Jake Lacy) was around for the entire shows length, but he’s not memorable…especially since a top seed of Dwight (Rainn Wilson)
Meredith Palmer vs. Robert California – Meredith Palmer — Is there a moment that stands out more than Casual Day at the office? Plus, I can’t stand James Spader…
Ryan Howard vs. Todd Packer – Ryan Howard — Packman (David Koechner) has his moments, but WUPHF barks its way thru in the form of Ryan (B.J. Novak)
Kevin Malone vs. David Wallace – Kevin Malone — David Wallace (Andy Buckley) is a crucial character in this storyline…but Kevin (Brian Baumgartner) and his famous chili…
Jim Halpert vs. Clark Green – Jim Halpert — Jim (John Krasinski) the final #1 seed, and all of them are solid…so Clark (Clark Duke) stood no chance with his late arrival
Toby Flenderson vs. Jan Levinson – Toby Flenderson — Sometimes my stomach hurts when Toby (Paul Lieberstein) comes into the office. Go away Melora Hardin
Darryl Philbin vs. Roy Anderson – Darryl Philbin — The ultimate fight of the warehouse, but Pam’s ex (David Denman) gets shoved out of the way by the creator of the Dunder Mifflin theme song (Craig Robinson)
Stanley Hudson vs. Hank – Stanley Hudson (Leslie David Baker) — Well, I like pretzel day.
Michael Scott vs. Holly Flax – Michael Scott — I want people to be afraid of how much they love Michael…and Holly can’t top her counterpart
Kelly Kapoor vs. Angela Martin – Angela Martin — Kelly was great, but she’s an Annex girl, and not a cat loving person…but if you pray enough you can change yourself into a cat person
Pam Beesly vs. Erin Hannon – Pam Beesly — The OG secretary vs. the new age one, and Pam is no Hitler
Andy Bernard vs. Creed Bratton – Creed Bratton — He was born in the U-S of A baby…and Andy got really annoying after a while
Dwight Schrute vs. Meredith Palmer – Dwight Schrute — Can Meredith advance? Probably. But I think to myself, “Would an idiot do that?”. And if they would, I wouldn’t do that thing.
Ryan Howard vs. Kevin Malone – Kevin Malone — Me think, why waste time say lot word, when few word do trick?
Jim Halpert vs. Toby Flenderson – Jim Halpert — This one was tough…on one hand Jim is the heart and soul of the show, and the Yin to Micael’s Yang (that’s what she said)…but on the other hand, when you look at Toby advancing on, only one word comes to mind: Nooooooooooooooo
Darryl Philbin vs. Stanley Hudson – Stanley Hudson — Craig Robinson hit a next level of funny with this show, but Stanley’s deadpan is unrivaled…also that moment of: You are a professional idiot.
Michael Scott vs. Angela Martin – Michael Scott — Webster’s dictionary defines wedding as the fusing of two metals…and Angela is no metal
Pam Beesly vs. Creed Bratton – Pam Beesly — I so much want Creed to move on to the Final Four, but Pama-lama-ding-dong is too strong to be defeated by anyone other than Michael (if anyone can…)…let’s just pretend Creed advances until the cops leave
Dwight Schrute vs. Kevin Malone – Kevin Malone — The one upset in the Elite Eight, as this bracket was very well laid out, but Kevin has very little patience for stupidity. I’m sure Dwight will get over it, as his feelings regenerate at twice the speed of a normal man’s.
Jim Halpert vs. Stanley Hudson – Jim Halpert — Stanley is funny, and I may have lost my mind, but Jim can counter that in the pilot alone, by putting the stapler in the jello
Michael Scott vs. Pam Beesly – Pam Beesly — Pam had to put up with Michael for years, and it’s because of him that her character is so strong. But she is able to stand up strongly on her own, even after he leaves. Michael presented her with the Dundie that brought around this gem: I wanna thank God because God gave me this Dundie.
And it’s every parents dream to step aside and let the championship matchup happen.
Kevin Malone vs. Jim Halpert – Jim Halpert — When he President, they see. But until then, Kevins run will stop here
Pam Beesly vs. Jim Halpert — I am going to cheat on naming a winner to this bracket. The winner is JAM. Jim and Pam, as a couple. They are the couple we rooted for from Day 1, and they are the couple that made everyone believe in love and relationships.
Can you think of a better moment than that wedding in Niagara? Doing it on the Maid of the Mist, and finally the dancing down the aisles for the wedding itself.
Now would you just wait one second while I tie my shoe?
