Product Description

Have you tried turning it on and off again?

In the gleaming high-rise offices of Reynholm Industries, powerful executives oversee billion dollar business deals. But in the dark and shabby basement, the company s IT Support Team bitter slacker Roy (Chris O Dowd), socially inept Moss (Richard Ayoade), and their new boss, computer illiterate Jen (Katherine Parkinson) rule their own domain of professional irresponsibility, mega-nerd ecstasy, and random acts of personal insanity.

Producer Ash Atalla (THE OFFICE) and writer/director Graham Linehan (FATHER TED), present the most critically acclaimed comedy series of the fall television season and a 2008 International Emmy Award winner for Best Comedy, now featuring deleted footage, audio commentaries, a behind-the-scenes documentary and much more.

"Kick Arse Comedy!" -Aubry D'Arminio, Entertainment Weekly

One of the lunatic joys of the comedy year...a deliriously funny workplace sitcom...On The IT Crowd, nobody s cool, but you ll love everyone. --Robert Abele, LA Weekly

...the funniest straight-ahead sitcom of the American fall television season...there is a lot of falling over. --Robert Lloyd, LA Times

…a cross between "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" on FX and "The Office" on NBC --Barry Garron, The Hollywood Reporter

First off, let me say the show itself is great and very funny, and deserves five-stars. The only reason the DVD didn't get five-stars is because it isn't perfect. Namely, it is missing two features that appeared on the UK version: audio commentaries for each episode and outtakes. It doesn't make sense really, considering the UK version is also one-disc, so I don't think it was a space issue. And what's worse, when BCI Eclipse was going to release it (which they sent out review copies for) it included them! So, if you really like the show, and have the ability to watch a UK DVD, you'd be better off getting that so you don't miss anything.

I was shocked and bewildered at how ridiculously funny and entertaining The IT Crowd is! I have not laughed this hard in years! I would love to find new ways to communicate just how much this show rocks, and I would love to emphasize to everyone just how much you NEED to check this show out!

Stellar and amazing, The IT Crowd gets my absolute highest recommendation, and my highest rating of approval.

5 stars....... Absolutely brilliant!

The IT Crowd is more gold from the united kingdom. The jokes are not too nerdy but there are enough nerd-core in-jokes that the geek in your life will love this series. Fantastic character work pull off a simple idea and make it phenomenal.

What Reynholm Industries actually creates or produces or sells is a mystery, but what the IT department of Reynholm Industries produces is terrific comedy led by a talented trio playing Jen, Roy, and Moss (ably assisted as the show progresses by whomever is the head of Reynholm in this first season, and that's all I'll say about that). You will laugh your head off at the nerdy way of things.

The players: Jen, the "dynamic go-getter" whose idea of lots of computer experience (a nice little fib at her job interview) is turning the computer on and off, sending and receiving email, rinse, repeat. In other words, zip qualifications to work as the manager of IT, the department exiled to the nearly windowless squalor of the basement. She gets the job all the same.

The IT department's tech-savvy workers are Roy and Moss. Roy is Irish and Moss has a guffaw-inducing strictly parted afro. They're consummate nerds (look at the posters, the t-shirts, the games they play, the social awkwardness). But with Jen at the help as the "people person" to buffer for the non-people people that are Roy and Moss, a team gels that continues to fall into mishaps that ensure laughter.

Trust me, the show is way, way better than my encapsulation. Moss is my particular fave. In series one, the episode where he has to lie is a hoot. My fave Moss-mess in this series is the fire episode. He's wonderful in his lack of practical knowledge. In later series, he just keeps getting funnier and more clueless about practical, non-IT matters.

Jen, though not a nerd, is hilarious in other ways (the SHOE episode!), as well as offering an earnest ambition and likability.

Roy is hot-tempered and feisty and will make you chuckle at his frustration at the computer illiteracy of others.

This has got to be one of the funniest TV shows I've watched this year. Whether you work in the IT industry or not, you will laugh. Watch out for the homage to old computer games in the title credits.
Its worth buying a cheap all region player to view such funny shows.

It's absolutely horrible this is only available as a Region 2 DVD, because this show is hilarious. There are only 6 episodes in this season, but each one is as funny as the next.

Even if you're not a fan of British comedies, you should check this out. I'd like to get a region free DVD player just so I can own this DVD, but until then I'll settle for what I can find on Youtube.

No, the DVD isn't out as I write this, but I want to encourage North Americans who haven't seen the show to check it out on BBC America. This is the funniest show I've seen for years. My husband will get me this DVD for Mother's Day if he knows what's good for him. :)

I decided to catch this show on Netflix based on the great performances of two actors in REALLY bad American films (Ayoade in "The Watch" and O'Dowd in "Bridesmaids"). As bad as those two films were (IMO), I thought they stood out and had not heard of them doing a show together...particularly one this funny!!

From the cheesy 8 bit graphics of the opening credits, to the set design (a geek/technofile's dream if you really pay very close attention to the items laying about their basement office), this is easily one of my favorite BritComs (next to SPACED that is). Although it pre-dates "Big Bang Theory" by a year, if you are a fan of "BBT", you simply must check out The IT Crowd. Moreso if you miss how funny "Big Bang" USED to be before they "jumped the shark" or "nuked the fridge" in season four.

The more I go back and watch these episodes (bought all four seasons since Netflix no longer streams the show), the more I even pick up similarities to a little show called "Seinfeld". Now...before you Seinfeld fanatics seek to berate me with your scorn, think about it. Seinfeld was really the first show on TV that truly perfected the method of finding insanity in the mundane. I find this show, on several occasions, manages to put incredibly mundane situations into the realm of absurdity.

In short...I can't recommend this show enough!
