60 Favorite Television Characters: 28

It makes a lot of sense when there were rumblings of a spin-off from The Office, the character thought to be at the helm of it was Dwight Schrute. Thank god that didn't happen, though, because we were given the gift of going along one last ride with The Office with Dwight, too. Rainn Wilson said it best when he said that what laid behind Dwight was an "aching, vulnerable ambition." That's what Dwight is at his core. Yes, he's on the spectrum. Yes, he did whatever Michael Scott told him to do. But aside from all of that, he was really just trying to achieve his goals the best way he knew how. And his friendship with Pam will always warm my heart because that was a goal he never meant to achieve. But I'm sure he wouldn't trade it for anything.

  1. Dwight changed so much over the course of the show. We got to see there was a weird heart deep inside that by-the-book salesman.
