The IT Crowd

Channel 4 have very kindly put the first two episodes of Graham Linehan's (Father Ted, Black Books) new sitcom online. The first episode is pretty good, the second is absolutely priceless. Once a master, always a master.

See it here! See hear!

I can't believe no one has commented on this. That was hilarious.

Bah, it's Windows Media video! For shame, Microsoft, for not making a proper (or, at the very least, functional) Windows Media player for Mac. I'm wagging my finger begrudgingly at you right this minute.

For shaaaaaame.

HAW HAW!

i hope a few more people watched this and enjoyed it, because it tickled me right good in my amusement area.

Bah! I cannot watch it on a computer because I don't think my workplace overlords would take too kindly to me looking at situation comedy programmes at work, so I will have to wait until it arrives on the television sets. (That's Friday, isn't it? I think it's Friday.) I'm right looking forward to it, me.

I am one of the few! I laughed so loud my housemate launched an investigatory expedition from downstairs!

Thanks for the link, Mister.

I, too, watched it with a silly grin on my face. Ahh, the absurdity, the joy. It did make me yearn for Master Bernard Black. I'm not sure why really, something about violence and Irishmen. It also brought laughs from my belly.

(Entirely appropriate random letters word verification of the day - belyklh - a belly kiln (or that's how I chose to interpret it), a warm place to bring out the best in shiny glazes in the rumbly, gurgling and gafawing tummy area.)

Oh man I wish there was more!

I am currently reading Mr Pevsner's seminal work.

I fully understand why he is so distraught.

I'm kinda disappointed in you all. The IT crowd weren't good comedy it were bad comedy. 'Look at this funny woman! She likes shoes! She likes shoes so much she is wearing shoes that are too small for her!'

Statements such as this get turned into something, um, different when they're processed by my brain.

That certainly tells you what kind of person that I am.

Is Chris Morris trying to do a Scottish accent?

I thought it was pretty poor and certainly elicited nothing from the belly from me. Richard Ayoade was pretty good in parts (e.g. the amsterdam story), but mostly I just felt the same as a lot of people here, namely that it felt unfinished. Some jokes were delivered so flatly that it felt as though the cast didn't actually get them, and seriously, who the hell is this guy and how did he get the gig?

I had to read the last 2 weeks of SGR to get my mirth levels back up after this.

Comedy message boards make me feel ill so I don't dare click your link "Beardmaster". The very act of reading them can make you think something you enjoyed wasn't funny. Also it can send you straight to the pill drawer for the death pills.

Maybe I am some sort of outrageous simpleton but I laughed all the way through at the procession of foolish things. But these things are in the past now. I am still marvelling at the multi-layered performance of Peter Serafinowicz in Marple on Sunday!

Thanks Peter

Being Canadian, I had to take some liberties with the law to get the first three episodes. I laughed quite a lot.

Thanks for the heads up on this.
