Storyline

Roy, having bet Jen he can go all day without saying 'Have you tried switching it off and on again?' and Moss are caught up in a bomb scare in town, which they use to play truant from work, Moss stealing some 'Grand Design' DVDs from a store. Back at the office Jen is subject to hiring and firing chief Ben Genderson threatening to sack her. Moss is arrested but when the bomb deactivating robot fails to work Roy says 'Have you tried switching it off and on again?', thus losing his bet though Douglas was too busy watching the bomb coverage on TV to sack anybody and the 'bomb' package turns out to be a balloon - which scares Roy when it goes 'pop'.

I didn't laugh once
10 August 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Since season 1 this show has been going downhill fast. This is probably the worst episode yet. It appears that the show's writers have stopped trying, and instead of geek jokes they have decided that every episode should be about geeks getting into some unusual situation.

Honestly I get the feeling that the "studio audience" must be comprised of either a room full of people and laughing gas, or else it's canned laughter. There is something not quite right when the laugh track bursts out into hysterical laughter over a man using the word "bloody".

It may be kinder to just put this show down after this season, as it is obvious that the producers, writers and actors just couldn't be bothered trying any more.
