This is a bit off-topic regarding WWDITS, but I suppose it's relevant because of the Matt Berry tie-in.
Only made it through S3 of "The IT Crowd" last night, but I agree that S3E4 was absolutely hysterical. Wonderful sight gags, lines, bizarre story ideas, general lunacy and overall inanity. Jen's true ignorance of IT is beautiful.
Nevertheless, I almost gave up when watching S3E1. It almost seems this show has two completely different writing and production crews, because S3E1 seemed like an extra episode made by the S1 crew and that they never aired back then, so they decided to burn it (and a few more like it) off early in S3. Really awful. Horrible laugh track is back after every grimace, single line (that is not funny), juvenile attempt at physical comedy, supposedly funny lines that land with a huge thud, etc. Truly horrible grotesque instant-on/off laugh track. And there was nothing funny about ANY of the show or story or acting or lines. Pretty much unwatchable. I never even smiled once, and really toyed with the idea of not seeing it through to the end.
And then you have the brilliance of S3E4, which has story, cleverness, mindless humor that you cannot stop laughing at, and of course features Matt Berry at his finest.
Anyway, I will do the final S4 and special tonight. Hopefully it's the same S2/S3E4 crew at work.
And of course, sadly tonight is the S2 finale of WWDITS. And then gone for another year. For filler I will look into the original movie, and some more older work from the Matt Berry CV.
