You Need To Watch This: "The IT Crowd"

Just got into Season 4 of my favorite British series, "The IT Crowd." If you've never heard of it, you fall into the category of most people here in the states. I'm not writing this to convince you to watch it, but I do want to share my enthusiasm for the show.

Moss, Roy, and Jen work for Reynholm Industries in the IT Department. The official greeting being, "Hello IT, have you tried turning it off and on again?" Roy (Chris O'Dowd) and Moss (Richard Ayoade) are the brains of the department. Moss is incredibly awkward and socially inept, while Roy dreams of a better life outside of IT. Jen (Katherine Parkinson) is the Supervisor, the only one of the three with absolutely no computer knowledge. The three of them together makes for perhaps the funniest satirical take on office life - something the Brits are really good at making fun of, vis-a-vis Ricky Gervais on "The Office".

The show is completely absurd, and will surely not get big over here any time soon. I really can't say enough for the show, show here's some of my favorite "IT Crowd" moments, thanks to YouTube:

Jen tries her hand at speaking Italian.

Moss figures out how to store his cell phone.

Roy goes on a date with chocolate on his head.
