The IT Crowd

as you may have assumed, I have been failing to come up with things creative enough to actually post to this blog. So, in the spirit of my computer nerd heritage, I have decided to make my next 12 posts dedicated to the British sitcom called "The IT Crowd." Nobody can say for sure whether it is pronounced "it" or I.T., but I say I.T. because that's what I know... Kathryn of course disagrees, because she would.

ANYWAY... this, the first of a 12 post series, will be the first episode of the first season. The videos are on Youtube, so if you want to look ahead, feel free, although then you will have no use to come back to my blog, so DONT DO IT!!! (c:

Each video is sectioned into 3 parts for size sake on Youtube, so you will (heaven forbid) have to click 3 different play buttons at 3 different times... yikes!

Season 1 - Episode 1 - "Yesterday's Jam"
Denholm Reynholm, the technically challenged boss of a large corporation, interviews Jen Barber for a position. Fooled by her "techno-bluffing", he appoints her as manager of the IT support office, where she demonstrates a complete lack of knowledge in technical matters.

Moss and Roy, resenting having been given a manager, attempt to get rid of her by exposing her lack of knowledge and experience to Reynholm until they realize her people skills can be an asset for them.

Part 1

I finally watched it!! Pretty funny - love the end with the Amsterdam story and the pictures in the credits. I'm also now questioning the fact that we work in a basement.
