I'm flabbergasted. I've just downloaded and watched the first episode of The IT Crowd from the Channel 4 web site. It was funny. I laughed. Out loud.
Ignore the nay-sayers who've complained about stereotypes and laughter tracks, The IT Crowd is a traditional, studio sitcom in the same vein as Father Ted, and potentially as funny. It's The Office but relying on observational and silly comedy instead of cringe comedy. Make a date for it in your diary.
PS If you've ever used the slideshow feature in iPhoto, you'll practically wet yourself during the end credits.
