It's a series. A programme is called a programme. Or a program. Whichever. A season is a period of time during which bears sometimes sleep, and the approximate duration of a single US series.

I was a bit sceptical going into Season 4 as I thought Season 3 was easily the weakest thus far, but I was pleasantly surprised as it was one of the best IT Crowd episodes I can remember. My favourite is still the theatre one though.

Season 3, Episode 3, "Tramps Like Us" is the greatest thing I've ever seen in the history of television. When Moss comes out of his concussion and the Windows start up theme plays, I literally cried out of laughter.  :rollin

I checked out this show, and while it's quite clever, I can't get past the laugh track.

So you've never been able to watch any sitcom ever?

No, I say fair play to him. Most sitcoms I watch don't have a laugh track. Even the weirder ones. It's been deeply uncool for the best part of a decade now. The only recent sitcoms I can think of that have laugh tracks are crap family ones which air at about 6pm, and Graham Linehan's stuff.

To wit...

The Office, Extras, Spaced, Scrubs, The Mighty Boosh, Peep Show, The Inbetweeners, The League of Gentlemen (eventually), Malcolm in the Middle, Curb Your Enthusiasm, etc. etc. I can think of more sitcoms without laugh tracks than with. Laughs are more the territory of sketchcoms and panel shows.

I Think the 2nd episode of the 4th season is the funniest in the series.

I forgive the older sitcoms of the 70s through the early 2000s (many of my favorite older sitcoms have laugh tracks) because having a laugh track was just what you did back then... there was no perceived alternative.  Now that we have hilarious shows that have demonstrated that they are not necessary anymore, such as Arrested Development, The Office (both US and UK versions), Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 30 Rock, Scrubs, etc. etc., a laugh track in a newer show just feels cheap and distracting.  I can't for the life of me understand why any newer show would choose to have one.

Now, the humor in certain newer sitcoms such as IT Crowd and Big Bang Theory is actually clever enough that I might be able to look past the laugh track, but I honestly would be enjoying the show in spite of it.

HA. I agree with all of your post except even the idea of the opinion that that show is remotely funny in any way.
