Its worth a punt. i'd never heard of it and really enjoyed it. It'll really help if you're into geek references as theres a lot of them

Best comedy in years, especially for geeks like us.

In my opinion, Darkplace was better. But not by much.

IT Crowd is terrible. It's the British equivalent of The Big Bang Theory.

I thought saying the whole name sounded too homosexual or confident. Like you're so famous only special people can call you by your full name. I can't win.

I watched an episode of IT crows last night. Not as funny as I remembered TBH. Moss, though, is the kind of person who cracks me up whatever he does. It's all in the delivery I guess.

This is malignant for diapered cartoon girls crutches as well

There are some amazing episodes though, like the Countdown one.

I don't think you deserve to have an opinion on comedy.

If a sitcom is going to try and get away with a laughter track these days it has to be really good. Not broad comedy, lazy stereotypes and catchphrases.

To be honest, I'm struggling to think of an example of catchphrasing in IT Crowd. Stereotyping is probably fair enough, though.

Ricky Gervais' Life's too Short might deliver some great moments.
