The IT crowd

Just wondered if there are any other fans out there. I think it is/was absolutely brilliant but don’t know that many people who watched it.

 

For those who haven’t seen it and would like to watch on Netflix my favourite episodes are:

 

The final countdown 

Jen the Fredo

Bad boys

The work outing

The dinner party

Return of the Golden Child

Massively under-rated IMO. Matt Berry is brilliant. Also, guest appearances by Belinda Stewart-Wilson (Will's Mum from The Inbetweeners) is always pleasant :)


The episode with the electric sex pants (Tramps Like Us) is brilliant comedy.

Just fantastic and always put a smile on my face.

This was in the second series. Has a comedy character ever had a better entrance?

Easily the best comedy there has ever been. Watched it numerous times and still laugh. 

 

The Work Outing tops it for me,

Matt Berry has been funny in everything I have seen, Mighty Boosh, IT Crowd, Toast of London.

As a tax dodging student when this was first broadcast it felt more like a fly on the wall documentary than comedy

And not forgetting his magnificent contribution to House Of Fools, especially the 2nd series.

Great episode I like when Jen says to act natural and they all do these really awkward poses.

Love this sketch. Some of the names are great "Ikbal Achieve"

 

Ye IT crows is wonderful TV, some many good moments. I must say Chris Morris is a legend of comedy and Matt Berry isn't quite on his level, maybe he would be now though (the bit with him giving the Japanese guy his shoes is brilliant) and I also liked the bit where he dances at the nightclub. Cracks me up everytime.

Toast of London just hits me exactly where I chuckle. Mr Berry has that daft sense of comedy that does it for me. What a voice. What we do in the shadows is also great

Always watched it when it was on and enjoyed it, then watched them all back to back a year or 2 ago on Netflix. I hadn't seen the last series until that point.

 

Very underrated as mentioned. Lots of genuinely laugh out loud moments and I don't laugh out loud at TV that often.

I think Graham Linehan plays the French technical support in “Bad boys”.

Give Garth Marenghi’s dark place a watch. One of the most underrated comedies of all time in my opinion. Shame it was only the one series

Loved the final episode when he just floats out the office and the dinner party.
