Does anyone watch the IT Crowd?

Its on Netflix. It's British humor and the show really grows on you. I discovered Noel Fielding after watching the British Baking shows and that's how I got into the IT crowd. If you like part dry humor with some zaniness mixed it you'll love it.

LOVE it!!! DH and I watched it a few years ago, and we still go back and watch a few episodes over and over. Soooo funny! DH was saying I should have suggested the IT Crowd when someone was looking for a show to watch after finishing The Office.


100% recommendation.

Years ago, but I loved it! So funny. Moss is my favorite. Especially the scene where he sets the office on fire. "I'll just put this fire over here with the rest of the fire." My friends and I still quote that to each other!

Years ago, but I remember liking it quite a lot. Especially Moss.

Quote:

I’d forgotten that until you quoted it, and I can hear Moss saying it.

Boy told me to watch it, making me promise to watch more than one episode (he knows me well...). I thought the first episode was really, really silly but I promised Boy I would give it 3 episodes. I'm now on Season 3, episode 2. Sometimes the laugh track wears me out but sometimes I hoot with laughter. It was the fire episode that made Moss my absolute favourite.

Top 3 episodes for me:
Are we not men? Where Roy and Moss learn "Football Talk" like real men. Also, Jen dates "Michael the Magnificent". Every minute is funny.

The episode where Moss designs a comfortable bra (after fainting when Jen mentions a bra), and goes on tv under an assumed name to promote the bra. So funny!

The episode where Jen takes Moss and Roy to the theater. Roy gets caught using the handicapped bathroom ("I'm disabled!").

I love how there are so many funny little touches that don't really add to the story at all, but are just hilarious! I love the extras

I thought of another funny line from a funny episode, when Moss (like all of you, he's my fave) goes on a gameshow. He's at a bar, and says, "I came here to drink milk and kick ass, and I've finished my milk."

I miss watching it. On Prime, the actor who plays Moss, has a show called Gadget man. It a fun to watch too. No idea how to describe it though.

Love this show and love Moss. He has a show on Hulu called Travel Man that I also love. The episode where Jen had a dinner party and they were all trying to act normal...

We're watching it again and laughing the whole time. The football episode and dinner party episode lines are quoted in our nerdy house. "Act normal!"

Check out Travel Man, where the actor who plays Moss takes celebrities on whirlwind 3 day holidays around the world. It's a sort of spin-off on Gadget Man and is as funny as The IT Crowd.

Oh my goodness, yes! DH and I binged it last spring. Now I want to go watch it again!

Dear Sir stroke Madam, I am writing to inform you of a fire which has broken out on the premises of… no, that’s too formal. Dear Sir stroke Madam. Fire…exclamation mark. Fire…exclamation mark. Help me…exclamation mark. 123 Carrendon Road. Looking forward to hearing from you. All the best, Maurice Moss.
