The IT Crowd Episode 2

The show is heading in the right direction. The second episode is funnier than the first.

Strangely, although the official website still quaintly tells you to “CTRL+ALT+DELETE your TV and watch the IT Crowd online!” the downloads seem to have disappeared.

Atariboy has a list of Torrents.

Update 8/2: Episode 3 is out and pretty good, but it is not available from channel four unless you are in the UK.

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.
