Have you tried turning it on and off again?
In the gleaming high-rise offices of Reynholm Industries, powerful executives oversee billion dollar business deals. But in the dark and shabby basement, the company s IT Support Team bitter slacker Roy (Chris O Dowd), socially inept Moss (Richard Ayoade), and their new boss, computer illiterate Jen (Katherine Parkinson) rule their own domain of professional irresponsibility, mega-nerd ecstasy, and random acts of personal insanity.
Producer Ash Atalla (THE OFFICE) and writer/director Graham Linehan (FATHER TED), present the most critically acclaimed comedy series of the fall television season and a 2008 International Emmy Award winner for Best Comedy, now featuring deleted footage, audio commentaries, a behind-the-scenes documentary and much more.

It's nerd/geek humor, but it's not smart humor. People are goofy and there is some slapstick. And it's all the silly humor mixed in with nerd/geek references. It's just fun.
So if you want an old-school goofy comedy, this is it. If you prefer more modern non-goofy comdedy and still want the geek atmosphere, I would suggest "flight of the Concords" instead.
The only downside is that you only get 6 episodes here. So if you pay the msrp of $24, you're paying $4 an episode. To me that's too much. It's on a good sale now, and I hope it is when you buy it too! The 6 episodes are series 1, so you are getting a complete series. I just wish they would have done series 1-3 as one box set.
In my opinion Series 1 & 3 are much stronger than series 2. Rumor has it that a Christmas special is being made this year and there will hopefully be a series 4 after that. I'll keep buying them for sure!
IT IS NOT!!!
First of all, it's older. The humor is the British fondness for nonsense.
While Moss is by far the most facinating character, the others are not fillers or straight men. The show is a good laugh all around.
If this review doesn't convince you then look at some clips on You Tube first. That should do the trick.
