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.

Goofs

During the animated intro of the show, while moss is smashing the keyboard with a cricket bat (at least, it looks like one) his wrist watch is on his right arm. but during falling down that ventilation shaft the watch is on his left hand. after the fall rising up his arms he has no watch at all.

Bloody Brilliant
13 May 2007 | by amethyst2403See all my reviews

Considering the brain dead material on TV these days, including all the "reality TV" garbage, The IT Crowd is probably the best show to come along in a very long time. The characters are well developed, the humour is dry and witty and the cast is amazing. There are so many nuances that you have to pay special attention or you'll miss them, which is difficult to do when you are busting your gut laughing with tears pouring down your face. You have to watch the episodes several times to get it all and each time you howl with anticipation of what you know is coming up next. Favourite parts have to be the tarty red shouza (shoes) and when Roy has to explain to Moss about "High Tide" - First scene of Carrie Moss. Richmond is OTT. Brilliant. Can't wait to see series 2.
