I've been showing The IT Crowd to my fiancee, and we're coming up on the Season 1 finale soon. I remember from the last time I watched it that the season finale ends on a cliffhanger that is never resolved: season 2 just picks up with a new storyline as if the old one had never happened. Does anybody know why the season 1 finale was never resolved? Also, anybody care to hazard a guess as to why there wasn't more fan protest over this decision? It seems to me that if a show in the US started a new season with complete disregard for the previous season's cliffhanger, fans would be taking to the streets (or at least the forums) in mass protest. Maybe it's a British thing? Thanks in advance!
