Storyline

Deep in the sub basement of the ambiguous company of Reynholm Industries, are not one, but two socially awkward IT guys. Moss, an electronics wizard and overly naive man and Roy, a lazy disgruntled co-worker have to provide support for Reynholm Industries with their inept boss, Jen, who doesn't know the difference between hardware and software. The show revolves around Moss and Roy's antics both at work and out socially, which always ends badly. Written by ME

Trivia

The show has garnered an extensive cult following among IT professionals. They've found many aspects of the show true to life. For example, the IT "office" is located in a dingy section of the basement, and is usually filled with a random assortment of equipment scattered about in varying states of repair, as well as the frustration experienced by IT staff in attempting to explain even simple computer concepts, IT-related practical jokes they play on each other and users alike, and the frequent exasperation at having to deal with management that has little (if any) concept as to what the department really does or how much work they perform.

User Reviews

Great Brit-com
12 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The IT Crowd is an absurdist satire of office dramas, featuring those most indispensable of nerds, tech support geeks.

The first thing I noticed watching this series was director Ben Fuller's patience. He has a willingness to let a joke build that evades most television directors. Some jokes are set up in the opening scene and wait until the final segment for the payoff.

The show is further bolstered by great chemistry and timing between stars Richard Ayoade, Christopher Morris, Chris O'Dowd, and Katherine Parkinson. Each actor emits a brave willingness to take their characters to extremes for a laugh.

It's all helped a great deal, of course, if you have a vague notion computer technology and its various sub-cultures, but for the most part, the audience is along for clever dialogue-related humour, not in-jokes.
