This show is just too funny. I only discovered it part way through Season 6 (yes, it is still running for this long!) and while I have been a late-comer to the series, it only makes me appreciate more what comedy gold I have missed. It pushes the boundaries for what content is usually allowed on TV - the more crude, the funnier! It definitely shares similar veins with Arrested Development, but also has unusual traits to British comedy (such as Little Britain and the IT Crowd) which is why I think it is a shame that it hasn't become popular still in the UK. Happening to stumble upon this show has been one of the best random decisions I've made! I wish someone, anyone, would broadcast this show on the TV so that people get a chance to experience a show as outrageous, hilarious and unmissable as IASIP.
If you like your comedies ridiculous and extreme at the same time, you should DEFINITELY try this show! It's already become a cult hit in the USA. You would be a fool to miss it!
P.S. Why is there no Region 2 DVD release? This is unspeakable, especially since you cannot watch it on TV. Someone needs to sort this out to satisfy UK Sunny fans!!! >:(
