The IT Crowd

I'm always on the lookout for some great TV shows on DVD. Since I don't have cable, I have to scour the shelves at the library or DVD store to see what's available. I took a chance on a new one (even though it originally aired in 2006) called "The IT Crowd". It's written by the same guy who wrote "Father Ted" (a favorite of mine) and "Black Books" (another good one, but not as good as "Father Ted") and produced by the UK producer of "The Office" (not a huge fan, but I like Ricky Gervais. I preferred "Extras").

Anyway, "IT Crowd" is kinda like a UK version of "The Big Bang Theory". I've only seen the first season of six episodes, but I liked what I saw. It's two nerdy IT guys named Roy and Moss who's IT response is usually, "Have you turned it on and off?" A new lady named Jen gets hired to be their "Manager". There is also a goth guy named Richmond who lives in the office behind a red door.

I'll have to get the second through fourth series and catch up...

For related off-the-wall wackiness, I recommend Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and Man to Man with Dean Learner both of which feature Richard Ayoade (IT Crowd's Moss). Funny stuff.
