The IT Crowd


Did you watch it? Did you see it?

Richard Ayoade again plays a character that everybody loves. Moss is the new Dean Learner. What did you think?

Re: The IT Crowd


Personally, I thought it was terrible - unfunny, annoying laughter track and does little to show how brilliant Richard Ayoade actually is. I feel sorry it his debut on mainstream TV, because a lot of people who don't like this show will instantly have a negative view on him, given the fact Darkplace is still such a cult show, and don't know him from this. The female actress in it is terrible, she simply gurns after every line and says things louder than necessary! From such a talented writer (Asha Atalla - "The Office")I'm greatly greatly disappointed - I feel myself getting more and more annoyed everytime they play that laughter track! There are outside shots, and close up shots that are followed by laughter, and thus is clear its not a live audience!
Very very poor, given the level of advertisment.

Re: The IT Crowd


Agreed ... I tried to laugh, but it just wasn't funny. The canned laughter, the overacting, the ... everything. I'm giving it one more chance. If the next episode isn't funny, that's it. It's a crying shame that Channel four are touting this mess and not giving us another series of Darkplace ... Or a Darkplace DVD ... bah ...

I was dissapointed, yes, but there is a lot worse comedy on TV at the moment. The canned laughter was annoying but at least Chris Morris saved the show everytime he appeared on screen, the man just has the gift.

I quite like it, dont think its brilliant but compared to the other shite that we have to fork out £120 a year for, its ok.
Have to say though that Maurice Moss(ayoade) steals the show. Just have to look at the guy and he makes me chuckle emoticon

The adverts seem more funny than the actual show emoticon

The only episode I found that was actually funny was the one with the goth man whos kept in the cupboard, hes great!
