Not sure how many here care or have seen the show (I suspect a lot more have seen In The Loop, the movie that was a loose spin-off), but in my opinion it's THE best comedy currently going, and I haven't been more excited about new television since the final season of The Wire (and oddly, I think the shows have a fair amount in common-- the main themes of both shows are arguably institutional dysfunction, they just approach it from completely different angles). Surely deserving of a thread.
