The IT Crowd reminded me a lot of America's Big Bang Theory when I first saw it. To me, Big Bang was a geeky love letter, but ultimately sporadic and hit-or-miss from episode to episode. By comparison, the brevity in which The IT Crowd shoots through it's first series benefits the progression immensely. This is your typical fish-out-of-water, socially awkward odd couple theme, but it works very well. The character of Moss, specifically, is genius in both inception and delivery. The situations are over-the-top and somewhat ludicrous, but the comedic timing is perfect, and the genuine attention to the details is what makes the series shine. From poo on the forehead, male PMSing, and a vampiric Goth server monitor, the ludicrous situations become more and more feasible, due to the wholly realized and believeable characters. Anyone that's ever worked at a job where they were underappreciated, over-qualified, and socially shunned by almost everyone will not only "get" this show, but enjoy it thoroughly. Also, there are many, many allusions to geek-chique and pop-culture minutiae to satiate the more useless-trivia inclined of us. All in all, a breath of fresh air compared to the stale and uninspired American sitcoms currently airing, and a worthwhile piece of work from some true comedic talents.
This is an absolutely hilarious program! The performances are great and the writing is top notch, which shouldn't come as a surprise as writer Graham Linehan was one of the creators of the brilliant 'Father Ted' series. 'The IT Crowd' is genuinely funny with just a touch of the surreal. All of the episodes are funny, with episodes 2 and 6 probably being the best. Even the menu screens, which look like 1980s video games featuring characters from 'The IT Crowd' are entertaining. Highly recommended!
One of my students told me about this show, and since I trusted his opinion, I checked it out on IFC when they were showing it. After a single episode I had to buy all three seasons. The show itself is hilarious, and is a wonderfully character-driven comedy--often confirming our worst suspicions about IT personnel. The situations are offbeat and off-kilter and always entertaining. Meanwhile, the DVD's menu screens (emulating 1980s videogames) are brilliantly entertaining to watch. The IT Crowd is like a virus (or Aunt Irma visiting*). Watch it and you'll catch the fever too. And unlike swine flu, it's a fun contagion. *Aunt Irma is in episode 5. You'll understand.
This is a very enjoyable production. One of its attractions is that is is different from your run-of-the-mill comedies. I like the "Big Bang Theory" a little bit better, but "The IT Crowd" is definitely worth having.
This is a bonkers sitcom with a very grungey feel to it. The show boasts over-the-top charicatures involved in the most rdiculous situations that have nothing to do with IT. Yes, IT stereotypes are injected and play well off character flaws and quirks, but the show is a farce and and the characters are in their own lovable ways, diabolical and self-serving. The show exceeds the boundaries of potty humor and gross out comedy the BBC would permit and kudos.
