Possible even surpasses Father Ted,
This review is from: The IT Crowd - Series 1-4 Special Edition Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
When the first episode first aired on TV I didnt watch it purely because I didn't think Graham Lineham could surpass Father Ted. How wrong. I got it into it around episode 4 and have now watched every episode at least four times and every one is as funny after repeated viewings as first time around it's that good. In 2004 the BBC conducted a poll to find the 50 best ever UK sitcoms. By rights if this is run again the IT Crowd should be up there in the top 5 with Father Ted and not some of the lamentable dreck that made it in last time. Not only the plots very original but the characters are unique and the one-liners sidesplittingly funny. It's rare for me to laugh out loud but when I'm feeling blue I just put on an episode or three and then everything's fine.

Whatever happened to that crispy bacon they had before the war, eh?

Very easy thanks for asking. I'm glad the taste police are out there monitoring our viewing habits. It's very reassuring. Now do one.
