From the Channel 4 press release:

"The I.T. Crowd is a joyous and surreal look at the underclass of every company. Jen (Katherine Parkinson), a career gal, finds herself working with two socially inept geeks in an information technology department, located in the basement of Reynholm Industries. The I.T. guys are roundly despised by everyone who works above ground. Jen is new to the company and, through some sort of horrible administrative error, has found herself in the post of Relationship Manager for the department.

This puts her in direct contact with Roy (Chris O'Dowd) and Moss (Richard Ayoade) two men who share a love of technology, pizza, science fiction and very little else. They are not used to being around women. Hilarity ensues!"


I personally am really looking forward to this. Graham Linehan's sitcom writing has never failed to be top-notch and a role for a certain Christopher Morris (playing the department boss Denham) is excellent news. There will also be guest appearances from Noel Fielding and Adam Buxton. Fingers crossed it should be very good.

The clips on this night's 'Imagine' gave me really high hopes. Richard Ayodade is a genius so far as comic delivery goes...

... and he still sounds like Adam.

really? maybe i just don't 'get' him then. he was funny in 'darkplace' but he's just doing the same thing here. and its not that funny.

i'm with stella on this, its ok but nothing amazing. if it wasn't written by graham linehan i wonder how we'd be reacting to it.

i do like the girl playing jen though, she does good comedy shouting. and chris morris' character is head and shoulders above everything else, but that kinda goes without saying.
