Ignoring the rough start (about two or three episodes of the first season in which the show is adjusting to its audience), THE IT CROWD proved to be hilarious with jokes overlapping from episode to episode and season to season. It was a bit ahead of its time although it gained a cult following and resonates still, as the computer age is not going to go away and the technological era is only sweeping in larger strokes across the world. As grandparents get online for the first time, it's no surprise that the question has to be asked: "Have you tried turning it off and then on again?" It's beautiful in its simplicity; I'm web and computer savvy, but even I can admit that this easy-peasy solution solves a whole range of problems. If you know anything at all about technology, you'll love this show about two geeks pushed into the basement of the office building until called upon to fix the computers upstairs and the shenanigans they get into when a pretty but computer illiterate manager is sent down to supervise them. I highly recommend it, especially the second season.

Brilliantly funny, and a treat for anyone who is a fan of Britcoms. Never before has the line, "Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?" been so funny.

We borrowed this a few years ago after enjoying Graham Linehan's other sitcom, Father Ted. It has become one of those shows we can watch repeatedly and still laugh at (Black Adder; Red Dwarf). Like most shows, it takes an episode or two to warm up but we found ourselves laughing out loud (and at times doubled over in tears at some of the later episodes (ex. series 3 episode 6 - but don't skip to it, it won't work that way).
I always hear people raving about Big Bang Theory, but I find this show far funnier.

Hilarious. A must see for people who do any sort of IT work and those who love British humour.

I wasn't sure I liked it for the first 2 or 3 episodes but by the end I loved the characters, the humour, everything. It made me laugh out loud, literally, and how often does a TV show do that when you're an adult?

I have mixed feelings about THE IT CROWD, I'm never really excited to watch the next episode, but it's not so bad that it makes me want to turn it off either. The episodes are quirky and the characters are likeable enough, although they seem more like caricatures to me. The production quality is low, although that seems to add to it's value in a strange way. I'm one the fence with this one, but leaning ever so slightly towards LIKING (not loving) this one.

The I.T Crowd, what can I say… You have to watch this! It’s a fantasticly hillarious send up of and I.T Department at a big company. You will laugh so hard that you end up crying.
