    4. The Speech After winning Reynholm Industries' Employee of the Month, Jen finds herself less than inspired to write the acceptance speech she must present at the weekly shareholders' meeting on Friday. When she turns to Roy and Moss for help, they see a prime opportunity to humiliate Jen in retaliation for winning the award even though "to a casual observer it would appear that (she does) very little," and present her with a visual aid, on loan from the top of Big Ben ("that's where you get the best reception") and completely de-magnetized by Stephen Hawking himself: "The Internet."

    6. Calendar Geeks The girls of seventh floor have the idea of making a nude calendar as a fundraiser for the victims of bosseyedness and Roy is chosen to be the photographer. The idea offends Jen, so she persuades the girls to do a nude calendar of elderly women instead. When Douglas makes her responsible for making at least a million pounds with the calendar she wants to return to the original idea. However, the women of the seventh floor have already been dissuaded from the idea by Jen's philosophy so Roy has to trick his stereotypical science geek friends into performing "sexy" poses.

The third series of The IT Crowd is the show's peak, in my opinion. Unlike American TV, British seasons are so short that one bad episode can really weigh down a season. That's why The IT Crowd: The Complete Third Season is the only DVD of a British show I've ever bought; three of the six episodes are funny, and the other three are completely hilarious.

Canned laughter is a negative and some of the humor goes too far into zany territory for my taste, but the cast and writing of The IT Crowd are great fun. I watched all three seasons on Netflix before getting this one to share with friends and family. I'm an IT guy so I expected this show to be a lot of un-funny pandering (think The Big Bang Theory), but I was impressed and recommend this to fans of British comedy. You don't have to be a geek to get the jokes, but it probably helps.

This is one of those amazingly funny shows that make me laugh like crazy. It is definitely in my top 5 list! :)

While some episodes are funnier than others, each episode has at least one really good laugh in it. The type of stuff that you spend the next few days giggling about whenever you remember the scene. I just really love it.

Hopefully, they will make a fourth season, since I already miss it.

Enjoy!

As I approach middle-age, In watching tv, i have witnessed many a tv show, both American, and from the UK.
This was recommended to me by a friend who claimed it was not just funny, but at times outrageous. At the time I bought this, Series 2 was also released, so i purchased both.
What a wise move.
The show is not as outrageous as was told, but is pure fun. I am still laughing at one joke, where the female boss of the IT department in a meeting of higher-ups claims that 'If you type Google within the Google site, you will break the internet'. Ok, is not as funny in print, but seeing it made my sides split.
Ross is my favorite. He is so hysterical, and what comes out of his mouth is so endearing, and all else that happens to the 3 employees of a business that has yet to say what they do believe it or not makes a classic tv show. Not offensive, and yet at times a little risque, you sense to be part of a family who work leisurely among those who think they know everything, but when it comes to computers, are clueless. It gives a new meaning to 'Is your computer turned on?'.
Love this show!

Maybe Season Three of The IT Crowd carried the burden of high expectations (at least as far as I was concerned). Seasons One and Two were hilarious and, judged by those pre-set standards, I couldn't help feeling that Season Three came out of the gate a little sluggishly. Was creator-writer Graham Linehan (of "Father Ted" fame) coasting just a little?

The first four episodes - From Hell, Are We Not Men?, Tramps like Us, and Speech - all succeed on their own terms and have plenty of laughs. But I've come to expect more from Roy, Moss and Jen. Sure, I like the way each episode introduces a variety of disparate elements and then uses them all to great comic effect. For example, when Roy gives a homeless guy 50p but criticizes his hard-luck story in episode three, we know that's a sentiment that will come back to haunt him. As soon as Roy and Moss bluff their way into the hearts of some "real men" in episode two, we know there's trouble in store. And it's funny to see Jen take her employee of the month award so seriously - even putting an Oprah quote on her office door - in episode four. Through the end of episode four, most of this season's surprises come from Douglas Reynholm (Matt Berry), the boorish boss who is forced to wear "electric sex pants" as part of a harassment settlement and gets to date a post-op transsexual, too.

The season reclaims past heights with episodes five and six - Friendface and Calendar Geeks. The intro to the Friendface episode , with its takedown of social networking sites ("don't think about germs..."), is uproarious.

I love British humor and this was wonderful. A must for people who work in the world of computers. Cast is a riot.

Hello all,

This is one of the best serial comedies out, what I think caps it off is the DVD's themselves.

The menu's are just suberb each different selection has a new menu which is just

amazing, eg the Episode select on Season 1 is a whole little game.

You can just watch the menu's

Do yourself a favour and watch it.
