From Amazon.co.uk

If you’ve not met Moss, Jen and Roy before, then here’s as good a place to start as any. As the IT Crowd of the show’s title, the trio find themselves relegated to the basement, only called upon when the company above them has a computer problem that needs solving. And as viewers of series one and two can testify, this provides a superb setting for one of the best comedy shows currently running.

Written (and directed too) by Graham Linehan, one of the geniuses behind Father Ted and Black Books, The IT Crowd this time lacks Noel Fielding, but has plenty to fill the gap he leaves. If there’s a particular favourite episode, it’s the one that rips apart the Facebook phenomenon by uncovering some information that it’s fair to say was best left covered up. And you’re unlikely to forget the box that apparently holds the entire Internet, too. Not for the first time in the show, a genius idea, superbly executed.

It’s a slightly uneven series, and one that saves its weakest episodes for first and last. But across the six episode run of The IT Crowd, there are plenty of laughs from a show that continues to deliver time and time again. Series four, fortunately, has already been commissioned, and off the back of what we get here, it’s got a high standard to aim for. --Jon Foster

Product Description

All six episodes from Season 3 of the award-winning Channel 4 sitcom set in the dingy subterranean IT department of the otherwise sparklingly modern Reynholm Industries. Episodes are: 'From Hell', 'Are We Not Men?', 'Tramps Like Us', 'Speech', 'Friendface' and 'Calendar Geeks'.

Format:DVD
This third series of Graham Linehan's SitCom may lack some of the edge of the first couple of series as the humour becomes slightly less surreal, but it's still madcap and it's clear that the core characters have been developed.

The IT Crowd feels as though it keeps up with current times (essential I suppose for a series where technology features highly) and it reflects on modern life by including such things as social networking websites and the recent trend for nude charity calendars. It might feel a bit naff at times but it is peppered with moments of pure brilliance, for example; Moss pinning Roy to a garage door as he kisses him (twice!), the prank on Jen involving the entire internet in a box, and of course Douglas' two-word outburst to a group of religious figures (currently my text message alert tone).

Noel Fielding is absent from this series so unfortunately there's no Richmond, but Matt Berry gets more screentime as Douglas becomes a bigger role. Berry's delivery has been utilised for comedy in the past and it's used well here, throwaway phrases become laugh-out-loud moments as he powers out an obscenity or strangely pronounced syllable - all adding to a strange yet weirdly likable character.

By now the IT Crowd is well aware that Moss and his `Moss-isms' provided some of the golden moments of the last few series and we are treated to more to add to the collection. Not only is the series aware of this but it actually acknowledges it when Roy makes a comment about "another classic" Moss line - the creators of the IT Crowd know that there's a fan base out there and it's great that they play to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linehan and his 3 Stooges do it again 1 Jun 2009
Format:DVD
This was definitely the best season so far of series. The first season was terrifically silly, but finding its feet, the second had some absolutely brilliant over-the-top moments, but was uneven, I don't think this season had a bad moment. They took the nerds out into the world more, to great effect, and Moss' character (Richard Ayoade), in particular, really settled into a great foil for Roy (Chris O'Dowd), continually bringing up the most inconvenient details out at the most inconvenient times. Douglas Berry as Douglas was actually funny this season (not so much Season 2). The ensemble sparkled.

Over here across the Atlantic, there was a thankfully aborted attempt to transplant the show, dropping at least Pansy Parkinson, who, I think, is a consistently brilliant comedienne. Her deadpan and timing are flawless. British comedy is best done by Brits. And Irish. And Scots. Ok, and anybody who was brought up with British weather and boiled food. Or whatever the secret is.

The standout episodes, if there had to be any, were "Friendface", "The Speech" (In which the guys convince Jen that a black box with a red light they've thrown together IS The Internet) and "Calendar Geeks", but, again, it was solid season all around. Thanks Graham Linehan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud comedy! 14 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Having been a fan of the IT Crowd since its very beginning I was looking forward to the next series - in this case No 3 - and I certainly wasn't disappointed. There are far too many comedies that simply aren't that funny but this series continues in the same vein of quality of Series 1 and 2 - which to me were brilliantly written and performed. Talking of which the IT Crowd is written by Graham Lineham who was involved in the Father Ted series and the humour is a little along the same lines - although completely different!! By that I mean similar in that there is very little bad language or anything to offend but different as the setting and characters are so very far from those in Father Ted. All three Series stand up on their own but to truly appreciate them and the odd remark with reference to something in an earlier episode, watching them in order is recommended. So what are you waiting for? Purchase the DVD now and if it doesn't work straight away "have you tried turning it off and on again"?!!!

The IT Crowd: Series 3 [DVD] [2008]
I have always been a fan of the show and it continues to go from strength to strength despite its simple format. This series includes the episode with the seminar when Jen demonstrates the whole Internet in a box! Not to mention the revolutionary anti-sex pants!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best IT crowd series yet. 10 Jun 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Series 1 and 2 and it is helpful to see them before seeing Series 3 as there are some references peppered throughout that otherwise would be missed.

I just wanted to say to not hesitate with a purchase of series 3 as somehow instead of going downhill this series has reached incredible new highs and I haven't laughed so hard in a long time while watching this.

Series 3 is full of amazingly funny moments, moments that seem to happen a lot more frequently now than before; take Series 1 where I only recall the "disembodied head effect" scene but Series 3 is full of incredible scenes. Let's hope there is more goodness to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong Show 5 May 2009
Format:DVD
Although not as competent as the first 2 series the IT Crowd Series 3 is still lots of fun, and has some great moments. The Characters Moss and Roy come up with some unique ideas to solve some of their minor life issues and Jen is always there trying to guide them, but generally ends up bringing herself down to their level.
Matt Berry adds his usual punch and including a great episode where he falls in love. Graham Lineham is a little conservative in the writing for a couple of shows but overall plenty of laughs and mad moments to make this worthwhile.
