Episode 5 is also only officially available in the UK
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.
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.
