    The Street Countdown episode was hilarious, but last night's saga over the kiss on the bum was, in my opinion, quite naff. I didn't find it funny and I don't understand why it's so popular amongst IT folk. Go figure.

    Because, as with home viewers, if something happens where the audience didn't laugh, and they meant it as a joke, they need to make it clear. otherwise people might sue them or write nasty letters about how the emergency services are not going private, or how slanderous it would be for a masseuss (SP?) to kiss you on the bottom....

    But yes, this weeks one was poor tbh. Jen's toad of a boyfriend was not like her character (since she's quite shallow, and he literally looked like a toad). Moss had too much confidence, and Roy would not normally do anything that required being in public or anything that took effort. Street countdown was epic, though the matrix countdown guy was lame and made little sense. It was only put in to appease a few more geeks. Oh and robot hand/spaceology was just ?????

    My favourite is looking at the different stuff they have in their office, and Roy's t shirts.

    Well that's just put me off, I had contemplated watching this but IMHO any show with canned laughter isn't worth watching.

    I thought Fridays episode was off form. The episode "The work outing" is the best episode in all the series so far

    The RPG one: Laughing pretty solidly all the way through (was starting to hurt) but maybe it's because I'm a bit of an RPG fan.
    Street Countdown: Most of the way through, not quite as funny to me as the first ep.
    Bottom Kissing: Reasonably funny - laughed out loud a few times - but nowhere near as good as the first two.

    Dont really make an effort to watch it really but the one i did watch was the Countdown one which i thought was pretty funny. Havent seen any others so dont have anything to compare with.

    I've been disappointed this series - it might as well be people working in a mcdonalds restaurant than an ICT Support office.
