One of my favorite BBC shows. ↑↑
*Again, checked 10+pages...
This series has ended BUT they are doing 1 last episode later this year!
4 seasons with 6 ep each, can burn thru this in 1 day roughly. If you haven't watched Father Ted or Black Books, I would suggest it, they are good also.

Some of this actors are in other series, some good and bad. Depending on taste, not a fan of some but they can be interesting.

The IT Crowd is a British sitcom by Channel 4, written by Graham Linehan, produced by Ash Atalla and starring Chris O'Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry. The "IT" in the show's title can be pronounced as either the word it /ˈɪt/, as in "the 'it' crowd", or as the letters IT /ˌaɪˈtiː/, as in the abbreviation for information technology.
Set in the London offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries, the show revolves around the three staff members of its IT department: a geeky genius named Maurice Moss (Ayoade), the workshy Roy Trenneman (O'Dowd), and Jen Barber (Parkinson), the department head/Relationship Manager, who knows nothing about IT. The show also focuses on the bosses of Reynholm Industries: Denholm Reynholm (Chris Morris) and his son Douglas (Berry).
The comedy premiered on Channel 4 on 3 February 2006, and ran for four series of 6 episodes each. Although a fifth series was commissioned, Graham Linehan announced in 2011 that there would not be a fifth series. A final feature length episode is to air in late 2013.
The show was the third successful sitcom creation of Graham Linehan, following Father Ted (co-written with Arthur Mathews) and Black Books (co-written with Dylan Moran).
This one isnt part of the series but has the actor Chris O'Dowd in it as a spoof.

Season 2 episode 1 is one of my favorite 30 minutes of television.

Just a heads up, there was an hour long special released today. I had no idea it was coming, just randomly came across it on IPT.
This isn't a BBC show, the UK has more than one TV station! This is put out by the other good one, Channel 4.
One of my top 5 UK shows
Wish they could have made more episodes, but the actors seem to be doing movies now.
There was an american pilot at one time , not sure what happened to that. Seems like that would do well over here since Big Bang is a success.
The Last Byte was pretty damn good.
WTB more of this show.
Was the hour long a final episode, or like a behind the scenes type thing?
I really tried to watch this show (BBC version, haven't seen US version) but it's just soooo god damn boring and not even remotely funny.
Worse of all that laughing track completely killed it for me.
"Sorry I tried to spit roast your mom."
Most BBC comedies are very dry, almost dark humor.
So I get why Arnold wouldn't like that =P
I love it tho. Been Watching BBC comedies in america since Ive had a tv.
Jesus fucking christ. It ISN'T a BBC show and the term you want is "British Comedy". Are you guys doing this on purpose?
It's like saying that Breaking Bad is my favorite HBO show or that I love Fox Comedies like South Park.

Nobody cares enough to learn your crazy cockney network structure for the handful of shows that are worth watching. BBC1 through BBCn, so say we all.
I haven't seen a single big black cock on this show, so I agree with Chris.
I pulled the whole series off a British coworker's flash drive while I was snooping around. I didn't like it at first, but since I didn't have much of a choice but keep watching it I ended up enjoying it. It is very "British", though, which I guess should be expected for a BBC show.
Also: there are 3 major networks in Britain. BBC (BBC1-3, CBBC aka Cbeebies), ITV, and Channel 4. Most good shit comes from Channel 4 and BBC (usually BBC1, though BBC2 has good shows).

Finally, thank you!
It's just the same as the USA network structure. They just named some of the networks after which button you had to press to get to it, BBC had 1 and 2, ITV had 3, Channel 4 had 4 and Channel 5 had 5. With digital TV that is now obselete.
BBC1 has all of the mainsteam stuff, then BBC2 has more niche things. Recently they added BBC3 for more experimental/trashy things, BBC4 for educational/highbrow, CBBC/CBeebies for Children and BBC News 24 for erm... News. It's been known for shows to move from BBC 3 to BBC 2 to BBC 1 as it gets popular but it's only happened once or twice. They won't get their funding if they don't put out enough educational/news/childrens programming.
None of these have IT Crowd
