The IT Crowd is back in the game!
(borkoboardo) from Livigno
16 July 2010
There are very few shows out there that really appear to have a
master-plan. I was frankly a little confused by the first three
episodes of season 4 but this one finally drops the bomb every fan was
In short, "Italian for Beginners" is an instant IT Crowd classic. After
diving a little more into the characters themselves in the previous
episodes, this one portrays these new aspects in action. Fast paced,
splendid punchlines, cynical metaphors and allegories and even
nostalgic IT Crowd feeling at some points.
After episode 1 I chuckled, after episode 2 I had some laughs, episode
3 confused me.... on episode 4 (this one) I almost p****d my pants! The
season is definitely reaching its first climax. Congratulations to the
writers and actors!
A little "half spoiler" at the end I just need to get rid off: Remember
these classic but slightly boring moments in comedy when the
protagonist gets exposed in public slowwwwwly and the process becomes
the embarrassing joke? Well, these are those moments when your head
(that's already shaking) falls into your palms and you go "noooooo....
how humiliating" - Towards the end of "Italian for Beginners" the show
reverses that kind of humor and you actually begin your initial
head-into-your-hands-fall sequence but once the scene is finished you
got your head up and ask yourself "How did she just pull THAT off?" and
just start laughing!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
