These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The IT Crowd
Complaining about Shows You Don't Watch: Pretty much the case any time a TV critic dismisses the show out of hand because of its production style. Daily Mirror critic Jim Shelley was once asked why he always made snarky, non-specific comments about the show in his column, and replied "I'll start watching the show once Graham Linehan realises it isn't 1995 any more." Even the notoriously Caustic CriticCharlie Brooker has called other critics out on this attitude, despite not actually being a fan of the show himself (which he considers to be decent, but not exceptional).
This also partially contributes to numerous accusations that this show is a 'rip-off' of The Office and similar unflattering comparisons, when even a cursory glance at both shows would reveal that aside from being set in a modern office the two are almost nothing alike. Graham Linehan has been known to get very irate about such comparisons for precisely this reason.
Crosses the Line Twice: "You wouldn't shoot a policeman, and then steal his helmet! You wouldn't go to the toilet in it! You wouldn't mail it to the policeman's grieving widow, and then steal it again!"
