Never saw it when it was actually on telly..

But now I have telly on demand and have watched it all. And I love it. And I love Jen. Great character, reminds me a lot of a lady I'm rather fond of in RL. Which is odd, as I get compared to Roy a lot. Roy and Jen getting it together? I can see that ..

Reynholm Industries Corporate Website

Hi fellow IT Crowd fans! I've just finished a little spare-time website project which you might get a kick out of: I hope you like it, I've tried to be as accurate to the series as possible without making anything up. For example, I have NO IDEA what Reynholm Industries actually does, so I've deliberately avoided mentioning it. I've also had to create a few graphics myself, in fact I've collected just about every piece of artwork/signage that decorates the walls of the basement, and made a few myself. I'm hoping to add some Reynholm wallpaper and printable stickers later on, but this is all I have for now. I'm looking forward to series 2, although it probably means I'll have to make a lot of changes to the site. We'll worry about that later I think, once I've actually seen the series! Please feel free to post feedback here, or even better send me a quick email through the Disclaimer page: Have fun :)

What a great idea. Done really badly. I just watched the first episode and it\'d\'ve been good if it had 1. A decent storyline, b. Unstereotypical characters and 3. Some funny lines. Other than that it\'s ... very ordinary. (Did anyone actually read the script before pre-production?) Please re-run Massive Landmarks Of The Twentieth Century - THAT was great television but stupid C4 refuse to release it on DVD even though they\'ll probably release this twaddle.

Come on....

Great to see this coming on the air just as the number of quality sitcoms seems to have hit a plateau. We have to be pretty hopeful for this one... they have assembled a great team, I will be half expecting to see Coogan, Iannucci or Gervais stroll across shot! It will be lovely to see Noel Fielding back on Tele after following his career since the Hen and Chickens as well as Adam (great show in the 90\'s) Buxton and of course the comedic arrowhead - Chris Morris although his doc style output (day today, brasseye) is stronger than his last attempt with sitcom (Nathan Barley) which was impressive and hilarious in places but perhaps not as innovative. Well done to Channel 4 in commissioning this - they are definitely on the up (Curb, Earl, Six feet under) but need to buy up new Arrested development episodes as the BBC are too inept to see a good thing when it falls in their lap… any thoughts?? .

It looks like the comedy equivalent of a super-group, some of my favourite writers and actors all in one place!

Looks like a classic in the making.
