Collected first season of the 2006 Rose D' Or winner for best sitcom. Jen (Katherine Parkinson) is the newly hired 'relationship manager' of the dingy basement-based IT department of the conversely immaculate Reynholm Industries. Her underlings, Roy (Chris O'Dowd) and Moss (Richard Ayoade), quickly realize she is somewhat lacking in the techno-smarts claimed on her CV. Finally, after years of being looked down on by everyone in the building, the nerdy pair have their own object of contempt. The episodes are: 'Yesterday's Jam', 'Calamity Jen', '50-50', 'The Red Door', 'The Haunting of Bill Crouse' and 'Aunt Irma Visits'.
From the creators of Father Ted and The Office comes this, the first series of The IT Crowd, the popular British sitcom thats taking the country by storm. Roy and Moss toil in the squalid basement of a huge company, fielding IT help-desk calls. Roy has a lousy attitude coupled with an eye for the ladies, while Moss is dressed by his mother and has an aerosol can of water clipped to his belt with which to spray his ear when it gets hot. Into their life of `users`, pizza, science fiction and firewalls comes middle manager Jen, a punky can-do career gal who doesn`t know one end of laptop from the other.

Their new boss Jen knows nothing about IT and has been given the job of Manager of IT by the Managing Director, because she lied on her CV. The Managing Director is played by Chris Morris and he is the best thing about the show. Truly this man is one of the great unsung heros of British comedy. Remember The Day Today, with the Jeremy Paxman like front man - thats him. Whenever he is in a scene he steals the show from everybody else.
The show as a whole is well worth getting on DVD. It certainly holds up to repeated viewings and the extras include some deleted scenes, out-takes, a look behind the scenes, as well as audio commentaries.
Graham Linehan has captured the IT department so cleverly and accurately.
Richard Ayoade has been perfectly cast as Moss the department Nerd.
I cannot wait for the next series it wont come round soon enough.
As previously mentioned, the stereotypes are brilliant, and while that may not be the case for every office, it's certainly true of some.
If you are a fan of The IT Crowd, you may also enjoy "Garth Merenghi's Darkplace", the same goes to Garth Merenghi fans, you will probably enjoy this.
"Have you tried turning it off and on?"
If there could be any criticism of this series it is that the main characters are little two dimensional (and I'm not referring to the title graphics or the DVD menus here - although they are fantastic and worth watching in themselves). If you have ever worked in, or had to deal with, an IT department then many of the situations will be caricatures of situations you have probably been in. And by being able to identify with the events that we are able to see the funny side. In fact, I think it may owe a debt of gratitude to Dilbert, and I think if you are fan of him, you will like The IT Crowd.
However, it doesn't stop there. As with both Black Books and Father Ted, The IT Crowd is lightly dusted with homages to other fictional creations. In this first series, there is a fantastic spoof scene of Wuthering Heights as well Phantom of the Opera. These little touches are what lift it from being a witty observational comedy to being a comedy great. I would question whether the particular setting will prevent it from being a timeless classic (as I think Father Ted is) but it will still be good to look back on in 30 years' time as relic of early 21st century technology.Read more ›
That's the setup for "The IT Crowd," a fun little workplace sitcom that sits on the other end of the comedy spectrum from "The Office" -- in particular, hardcore farce. The first season is six episodes of pure weirdness and mild surreality, mostly focusing on desk rabbits, corporate goths, disastrous dates, too-small shoes, Aunt Irma and the occasional desk fire.
As the story begins, Jen (Katherine Parkinson) is hired by the deranged CEO Dernholm, whom she has told that she knows plenty about computers. Unfortunately, he doesn't plan to have her working on the levels that are full of "lots of sexy people, not doing much work, and having affairs."
So he sends her down to the I.T. department, a filthy basement occupied only with "standard nerds" -- an embittered slob named Roy (Chris O'Dowd) and socially oblivious Moss (Richard Ayoade). Despite the fact that they keep the company from imploding, nobody appreciates them ("Have you tried turning it off and on again?"). Initially the guys loathe Jen and vice versa, but gradually they start to appreciate one another.
But that doesn't stop the weird plots that ensue, obviously: Roy disrupts an anti-stress seminar while Jen grapples with foot-deforming shoes (think reverse childbirth). The arrival of Jen's "Aunt Irma" causes the geeks to have PMS. A disastrous date causes Roy to try to prove that women love jerks, and Jen's crush on a security guard goes horribly awry when he uses her as his lifeline on "Do You Want To Be A Millionaire?Read more ›
