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. The IT "office" is located in a dingy section of the basement, usually filled with a random assortment of equipment scattered about in varying states of repair. The staff are frustrated trying to explain simple computer concepts. They play IT-related practical jokes on each other and users alike. They frequently have to deal with management that has little idea what the department really does or how much work they perform. See more »

Goofs

During the animated intro, while Moss is smashing the keyboard with a cricket bat, his wrist watch is on his right arm. When they fall down the ventilation shaft, the watch is on his left hand. After the fall, he raises his arms and his watch is gone. See more »

Graham Linehan tackles another genre of comedy...
22 November 2006 | by mikeybligheSee all my reviews

This time, he's dealing with technology. The IT Crowd, with it's old-skool computer game style opening credits, immediately catches the attention.

Roy and Moss are two IT staff working for a big company. But despite the size of the company, the two seem banished to the basement of the building. However, they seem to enjoy their locked-away existence, occasionally being tortured by moronic staff asking why their computer won't work, which is usually answered with, "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" The characters are likable, and the script is a joy. Further proof that Mr. Linehan has a good eye for great actors and actresses, and that his writing skills have not waned with time. After all of his previous successes (including Father Ted, Black Books and material for Harry Enfield And Chums, The Fast Show, Big Train, Coogan's Run, Brass Eye and Jam) The IT Crowd is another triumph.
