Did You Know?


Richard Ayoade reprised his role as Moss in the American adaptation of the series. NBC ordered a full season and even began promoting the series for its 2007-2008 season. Although several episodes had been scripted, the chairman for NBC at the time Ben Silverman had the show canceled before filming began as he didn't believe in the show finding success. See more »

5 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"The IT crowd" is an excellent comedy but requires the viewer to watch the second episode rather than base their judgement on the first episode then snub the entire series.

The first episode was a decent attempt to gain the viewers approval however, it was hyped far too much, which made the viewer think that "The IT Crowd" was the next best comedy. When the first episode ended, everyone was disappointed due to the lack of good jokes. There were moments in the first episode that somehow reminded me of the great mind of Graham Linehan who was the writer to "Father Ted" and "Black Books" due to random jokes such as the joke in the credits.

The second episode was almost redemption to the first as the cast and Graham Linehan ultimately revealed their true performance. It was almost surreal and had it's connections to "Father Ted" equally weirdness. There was uncontrollable laughter in a lot of areas of the second episode such as the stress class which delivered powerful comedy that would even make "Father Ted" mediocre.

I give this comedy a round of applause and wish for an encore.
