The IT Crowd

I’d really like to like a show that has A-Team jokes, a poster of The Flying Spaghetti Monster on the wall and a ZX81 and a Commodore PET as set dressing.

Writing a comedy about nerds has to be hard. Nerds are going to find most of the obvious nerd jokes to be … well obvious. Non-nerds are not going to get non-obvious nerd jokes, and I am not convinced they are interested. I would think most people regard watching a TV show about nerds in a basement with the same degree of enthusiasm as they would regard a wildlife documentary about one of your common or garden variety, dull, brown, sparrow like birds.

It is available on line and on TV in the UK. I will give it another couple of chances, but don’t go into the first episode with high hopes.
