I thought that the first season was much better than the others. The first seemed full of unique humour that captured the frustrations of IT support rather well, the subsequent seasons seemed to just move towards generic sitcom territory.

I think it went downhill when they brought Matt Berry in, as too much screen time was just devoted to him doing silly things.

True there are a few gems in the other seasons though: like the piracy Ad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALZZx1xmAzg

I agree with you, but I love Matt Berry doing silly things. Losing the "straight" Chris Morris did wacky-sitcom everything up, though.

Agreed, it was taking Morris out rather than bringing Berry in that appears to have changed the show (a tiny little bit) for the worse.

OTOH I doubt the show could've handled both of them :) (without losing too much sight of the IT nerds in the basement)
