The IT Crowd episode 6

Monday, February 27th, 2006

Now out, as long as you live in the UK of course.

It was only from hearing the ads in Ricky Gervais Show recently that I realised it is pronounced “The It Crowd”, rather than “The I.T. Crowd”. Oh well.

The IT Crowd Episode 4

Episode 4 is now available. The direct link to Channel 4

You seem to be allowed to download this episode from outside the UK again.

Thanks to AtariBoy for the heads up.

Stranger episode than previous ones. Probably compulsory viewing for all goths.

The IT Crowd Episode 2

Monday, February 6th, 2006

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

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

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.
