The IT Crowd

One of those opinions that I’ve felt the need to share recently is how underwhelmed I was at Channel 4’s new comedy, The IT Crowd.

Tony downloaded the first episode the week before it aired. The only time I laughed was during the end credits when Tony suggested hopefully: “Maybe it’ll get better?”.

I have to admit that we have watched each episode since but mainly because it’s on directly before the excellent My Name Is Earl (o/ Jason Lee). The IT Crowd has got very marginly better in subsequent episodes but, in general, the writing is terrible, the characters one-dimensional, the plots predictable, and the jokes unoriginal. Nothing like as good as Spaced or The Office, say.
