TV: The IT Crowd

Channel 4's new sit-com is set in the IT department of a large company. The geeks are a bunch of social mis-fits down in the basement surrounded by toys, posters and piles of assorted computer equipment. They get a new female boss who knows nothing about computers and hilarity ensues.

Well that's the theory. It shares a writer with Father Ted and has a similar style. There are quite a few good jokes, but they do try to force some of the humour a bit.

The office is an extreme version of some places I've worked. I've even been an IT support person a few times, but I like to think I'm better adjusted, well I am these days anyway. There's quite a few touches for the geeks to spot. Various old computers and posters of things like the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

We got 2 episodes tonight. I think I'll stick with it for now.

We were excited to see multiple trailers during the show for the new series of Green Wing. There's something to look forward to.
