I didn't think it was too bad, definitely had its moments and almost met my very high expectations. Moss was hilarious though, great delivery.

It was alright, but a bit of a massive disappointment. I found it a little too pantomimey, and a bit too 'easy'. There was really nothing that original here. It's a shame, because I really wanted to love this show.
I thought Chris Morris was good though. He's always good.

Noticed Peter Serafinowicz's name on the credits at the end of the second episode. What was that for (too quick for my old eyes)

Looks like the pointless cameos in the IT Crowd will be fun to spot.


I think he was also the lift "Get out of the Lift!"

I enjoyed it. It wasn't amazing, but still something to watch. There is nothing on telly I watch (except the news) so I think I'll stay with this.

From the adverts, it looked ok but nothing special.

Saw it for the first time last night and thorght much better of it. Not perfect, but it has something special there. I admit there were some moments I was laughing my socks off.

A bit of tweaking and hitting with a hammer it should straighten out rather nicely.

Ohh! I didnt look at the credits but I did gues Peter did the *Get out of the lift*

I think Ill stick woth it and see how it goes. I like the opening credits smile.gif

I thought it sucked. Lost interest by the second episode so it may have been better. Then again I think I just wasn't in the mood for TV that night as I couldn't be bothered to sit through My Name Is Earl either and that's something I normally go out of my way to watch.

Saw the double episode on Friday. Not massively impressed. Aside from Morris they were all a bit crap really.
The good bit-
"Do you feel stressed yet? Do you feel stressed yet? Do you feel stressed yet?"

Thank god Earl was on after.

I've had plenty of experience with IT departments, and I've liked them about as much as this show.

It promised such great things, and as Henry says, is a massive disappointment. The only good thing in it is Chris Morris. It's not just his performance, but his lines too. Ayoade and O'Dowd should be pissed off at Linehan for such upstaging to be allowed to happen.

I don't think O'Dowd is a good comedy actor, and he doesn't have much to work with. Ayoade, for all his delivery, seems totally out of place - as if he is still playing Dean Learner playing someone else. The jokes were old (talking into the unconnected telephone was coming from a mile off), and the canned laughter unnecessarily and undeservedly raucous.

I'll be delighted if it turns around and lives up to its potential, but it doesn't look likely.

Much valid criticism, though I'd be inclined to disagree.

But I do feel duty bound to point out the show is filmed in front of a studio audience.

I saw it being filmed on 'Imagine' and they really were laughing that hard.

You read my mind.
If I hadn't seen him as Saboo and Ned Smanks I'd have just assumed that he is the poorest actor working today.

I haven't acted since, of course some people would say that I never acted during; but they would be unkind people.

I did my best.

As a comedy programme, it's not up to much, but the characters are endearingly goofy. The problem is, whether the laughter is canned or not, it just doesn't fit because it's not that funny.

Again, that's a matter of opinion. It's not that the programme isn't funny, it's that you don't find it that funny.

Looking at the evidence of this thread there are plenty of people laughing along with the audience at home - me included.

I think the immense hype is killing it for some folks. I know that can happen to me with certain things.

I enjoyed it but it's not a classic.

Morris does indeed steal the thing with his every utterance.

'The Jap loves it!'.

Shouting at Japs, mad feet? All classic signs of stress.

I'd agree it's not vintage, but I find it very amusing and I am in love with both Chris Morris and Richard Ayoade ('s comedy performances).
