Arguably one of the funniest shows to come out in the UK since Monty Python, The IT Crowd is a hilarious spoof of today's modern office backbone, The IT department. Every company has one of these departments and they are usually cram full of oddballs. Well the oddballs are on full display in this master comedy from writer Graham Linehan.
"Set in the London offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries, the show revolves around the three staff members of its IT department: a geeky genius named Maurice Moss (Ayoade), the workshy Roy Trenneman (O'Dowd), and Jen Barber (Parkinson), the department head/Relationship Manager, who knows nothing about IT. The show also focuses on the bosses of Reynholm Industries: Denholm Reynholm (Chris Morris) and his son Douglas (Berry)."
This is one of the funniest pure situation comedies of the 21st century. Its exposure has been limited due to the short run style of British television and the limited access to broader markets. But this is a master work of fiction.
