Are they repeating it?

My Son loved the first series.
I was reserving judgement.

If S2 is more cosistantly funny,then we,ll watch every episode.

I bought series one after recommendations from here. I have to say, we've struggled. We keep trying and then shut it off mid episode. I saw some live thing on telly with them the other night and didn't really think it was funny either :(

Does series 1 get funnier as it goes along?

Nope, it's funny from the very first few seconds.

I'd give up Shane, it won't grow on you - you either like it instantly or you won't at all. :D

To be honest, it's pretty similar throughout the series.. If you don't get it, you don't get it. It's kinda like The Mighty Boosh in that way I guess.

I can't wait for series 2.. but I will wait, I'm not going to cheat by watching online ;) :D

Thought that might be the case but at the same time I bought The IT Crowd S1&2. Struggled with it for the first two and then it bit us. Now we LOVE it. Hoped it might be the same. Happened with the Office too. Tons of peeps I know loved it but, I hated it :(

The Office UK or US? A lot of people don't like the cringe inducing original UK version, the US version is in it's 5th series now and is excellent - more of a 'lol' comedy.

See...I loved it.
Yeah, all telly is always gonna be personal opinion. What did you like about it? I mean, I thought it was supposed to be a comedy but I just didn't find it funny. Being all cringy isn't funny IMO. I should say that I'm not a huge fan of the 'easy laugh' either. I just didn't find the Office clever in any way. It's not like I didn't 'get' the joke. I didn't 'get' the whole concept I guess.

That must be it. Humour is a personal thing...like taste in music, books, etc. Did you watch Extras?
