    So what was the verdict on episode one?

    I can sympathise with Roy being called on to 'open a laptop' I was once asked to drive 280 miles to put a computer in a box!

    Now theres a good idea, between us all we probably have enough stories to supply the show with seasons worth of content.

    I thought that it was ok, but not as good as some of the ones that have preceeded it.

    It was good, not as good as series one but still good.

    I'm just not keen on the new boss guy. Never liked his acting style.

    Moss is brilliant, as always.

    Has anyone ever watched 'Garth Marengi's Dark Place'

    It was a spoof of a 70's drama series, and a lot of the cast from the IT crowd (including Moss and Renham Jr) are in it.

    Yeah. The only character I liked was the one played by the guy who plays Moss. And I dislike the actual show. Too silly for me. (Staplers on strings attacking people, egg soup, scotch mist, far too weird!!!)

    As has Man to Man with Dean Lerner. Now that was funny, unlike the 3rd series of the IT crowd so far.

    I was disappointed. They wasn't a lot of IT links, it could have been a standard comedy based in a office block.

    I think douglas as the boss has some ace lines.........the bit about losing the pension money, were LOL moments for me.

    The whole gun storyline was a bit forced....not all that funny.

    The thing about a character like douglas or the chris morris character is that, like the Alan Johnson character in Peep Show, they are such wonderfully absurb characters that their cameo appearances tend to be the highlight of a series. As soon as they become more central to the success of a comedy then it doesn't work.

    Chris morris as renholm sr. was superb in those cameos......watched the visite of the japanese businessman from a previous series where renholm presents him with a pair of doc martens and it was hilarious.

    I suspect the more lines the douglas character gets the more the 'joke' starts to wear a bit thin.

    As for the first episode as a whole, other than the bits with douglas there were no LOL moments for me.......i'm wondering if it's not a case of this series being funny as six seperate episodes condensed into one such is the lack of genuinely funny bits. It has to get better than episode 1...shurely.
