Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In the cluttered basement of a corporate skyscraper dwells the IT department of Reynholm Industries, composed of three misfits: Slacker Roy (Chris O'Dowd), technogeek Moss (Richard Ayoade), and Jen (Katherine Parker), an ambitious but incompetent executive who knows nothing about technology yet wound up as head of the department. As the second season begins, these three have settled into a friendly relationship, but the revelation of financial misdoings turns the corporation itself topsy-turvy. Each episode takes a simple premise and escalates to absurd heights. Moss decides to take a cooking class and ends up friends with a German cannibal; Jen finally gets a new boyfriend... who turns out to have an extremely unfortunate name; Jen's bra doesn't fit well, sending Moss on an inventing spree that may skyrocket Jen up the chain of command. The best episode opens the season, when a trip to the theater turns into a festival of appalling misunderstandings; it's a perfectly orchestrated farce that culminates in Roy trapped in a wheelchair despite having no injuries at all. Perhaps the only off-note is a goth IT guy named Richmond who recurs but rarely meshes with the rest of the tightly wound plots. But that's a minor quibble, as the rest of the cast is excellent. Ayoade turns introverted genius into comic gold, in a similar vein to Jim Parsons on The Big Bang Theory; fans of that show should definitely give this British cousin a look. Created by the delightful writer/director Graham Linehan, who previously worked on Father Ted and Black Books. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughed so loud neighbors had to see why June 23, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I came across this show on IFC after watching another movie on that channel and being too lazy to turn just thought I would take a peek then turn if it wasn't interesting. Like the other reviewer, within minutes I was laughing so hard my neighbors came up to my unit asking what in the world was so funny as they could hear me through the ceiling. It was the episode where they were doing the geek calendar! The thing about british humor is that you eiter get it or you don't. I haven't laughed this hard since Ab Fab. I can't wait for my copy of season one arrives. I feel myself laughing already.

5.0 out of 5 stars What funeral? September 9, 2009
Format:DVD
The first season of the Britcom geekfest "The IT Crowd" was absolutely brilliant, technonerdy, and gutsplittingly funny. Guess what: the second season is actually better than the first -- it introduces a new insane boss to make life difficult for the IT department, and has them grappling with the difficulties of dinner parties, funerals, gay musicals ("It's a gay musical called 'Gay'... that's very gay") and assorted other problems.

Jen is annoyed when a possible date with the attractive Philip is turned into a "work outing" to a musical, and further annoyed when Roy pronounces Philip to be gay. Except the musical turns out to be a gay extravaganza, and Philip is well-acquainted with every gay person associated with it. In the meantime, Roy and Moss's efforts to find a bathroom without an attendant lead to a disastrous pair of mistaken identities.

Then when Denholm (or Reynholm, I'm not quite sure) walks out a high window, the IT department is threatened with doom at his disastrous funeral, and Roy becomes convinced that he's about to die. Then Roy becomes obsessed with watching a Korean zombie movie (with a twist!), while Moss's efforts to see new people ("We're stagnating, Roy! You're my wife!") have him signing up for a cookery course... except it's not really a course, but a personal ad run by a German cannibal.

Then when Jen has a dinner party for her friends and her new boyfriend's friends, she ends up having to invite Roy, Moss and Richmond... and her friends turn out to be a twittering nervous flake, a mummified model, and a drunken randy divorcee. Hijinks ensue. And when Jen complains about her bad bras, Moss creates the ultimate bra (which he calls the "Abracadabra") and plans to patent it...

I caught an episode of this show one weekend on IFC not too long ago. I saw an ad for it shortly before it was on, and thought, "looks kind of lame" but I was lazy, and left it on. Within the first couple of minutes, I was laughing harder than I have at a sitcom in a long time, it was the episode where Roy tries to fit in with some "manly" men at a pub, and ends up their getaway driver on a robbery. I searched around online, to see if I could find more eps, and was pleasantly surprised to see it was offered on Amazon. Having seen the first series, I'm just shocked that the writers were able to cram as much hilarity into each episode as they do. Then as I looked into it, I discovered it was created by the guy who wrote Father Ted. That explains it all! :)

Can't wait for series 2 to be released.

I started watching this on a friend's recommendation on IFC and I am glad I did. It involves people from two shows I love, Black Books and Look Around You and I can say if you like that type of humor, you will like the IT Crowd. If you work in IT, you will love it more. I mean, critics say oh the "have you turned it on and off" line isn't funny...but have any of those people worked in IT? Probably not. Most computer problems can be solved by turning the computer on and off or plugging it in. And this is why it is to frustrating for IT people to talk to the normals upstairs and they seem to always be in a dark room or basement.

The actors are so funny. Moss, Roy, Jen, the ignorant bosses and the goth guy Richmond, who is locked away in the IT's dungeon. I find it witty and original. Whoever said the laughter is canned, it isn't. They show it being filmed in front of an audience, it's real sound. They truly jump into their character roles without being too cliche. The jokes come at you a mile a minute too. Even the minor characters are great. There is also a lot of Mighty Boosh crossovers here, namely Noel Fielding and Richard Ayoade...so fans of that would find this show worthwhile too. It's got about the same vibe, though the IT Crowd is a lot less surreal. Where Mighty Boosh can be hit or miss, the IT Crowd is always on target. Haven't seen even a just ok episode yet, which is amazing to me. It reminds me a lot of the wonderful Black Books, where every show was worthwhile and hilarious. It has ideas that other comedy shows don't try...like cannibalism or making light of car crash victims or doing a Russian movie parody of smokers. To me, if you have a sense of humor that is not witty or cynical, you might as watch The Big Bang Theory, which isn't that funny at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars LOVE the show, but this DVD had a flaw in it September 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This show is great. I mean really great. Don't be put off by what sounds like a laugh track--it is filmed in front of a live audience that is REALLY REALLY enjoying themselves.
The only letdown was the special feature about the taping of the show--it kept messing up!!! grrrr

There are some excellent episodes in Season 2. Gay the gay musical is a HOOT! Those boys are such trouble. So inept.

The dinner party one kills me too! HAR HAR HAR :)
