  1. […] I also found some higher quality torrents of the IT crowd and updated the post, which has become quite popular (50 hits yesterday and 70 so far today) […]

  2. You can also stream both episodes @ the TorrentPortal forums ;),general-video.html

    Episode 1:
    Episode 2: (not working)

  3. Those streams dont seem to be working either, because the wmv’s have been removed from the webpage, the only way to get hold of the IT crowd at the moment is via Torrent.


    February 5, 2006 at 8:44 pm

  4. Yeah, they are working, I’m looking at them right now, and laughing my ass off :)

  6. Oh man, I laughed so hard I almost peed in my pants..

    This must get on Digg’s frontpage, never laughed so hard in my life.. Hmmm I’m an IT guy after all, not sure it would have the same result on a computer illiterate person ;)

  8. The directly download server is feeling the burn of the digg effect, if you can use Bittorrent please do, it will certainly be fast than the Direct downloads.

    Whats up with that?

  15. The show is really gd…. Will definately keep watching. One thing tho, have you noticed that on the ads for the show they say “the IT crowd”…. should it not be said like the “I *breath* T” crowd…. or am I just being difficult?

  16. Your link for Episode 2 Torrent isn’t working.
    You can use this one instead:


    February 6, 2006 at 9:47 am

  17. AtariBoy, as far as British comedy goes, this is barely considered decent.

    Have you seen The Office and Extras, for example?

  20. Can’t use the avi torrent for Episode 2. “Problem connecting to tracker – timeout exceeded”.

    “Did you try turning it off and on again?”

    Yes I did. Any other ideas?

  21. Wooops!

    It seems I was just a little bit impatient! *blush*



    February 6, 2006 at 11:05 am

  22. […] Atariboy has a list of Torrents. […]

  23. I didn’t laugh. In fact I got half way through watching the stream and switched off. Speaking as a geek I thought it was an extreme caricature of the IT crowd from the perspective of the non-IT crowd. I was hoping for something more subtle/intelligent like the office.


    February 6, 2006 at 1:15 pm

  24. I like Poached Egg. Yesterday i stole a Fried Egg off the internet and was very disappointed it wasn’t EXACTLY THE SAME as one of Ricky sodding Gervais’ shows. This makes Fried Eggs VERY DISAPPONTING for me.

    On the other hand, The IT crowd isn’t meant to be anything like The Office.

    If you can’t see past the superficial similarities, you should probably stick to watching your The Office box set over-and-over whilst reciting the script to anybody prepared to listen.

    For the record: I liked The IT Crowd. I also liked the office. I don’t like people who compare every sitcom to Faulty Towers, despite having not seen an episode in the last twenty years.

  25. Clever writing Rayn, but not such clever reading. I didn’t intend to make a direct comparison between the two shows, I simply stated my expectations. That aside, my main point is that the IT Crowd seemed to me to be “an extreme caricature of the IT crowd from the perspective of the non-IT crowd”. I think that more realism would have been far more funny for both sides of the fence.


    February 6, 2006 at 2:47 pm

  26. Contrary to the comments above, I have watched both episodes twice on Channel 4 and found them extremely funny! And yes, I am an IT geek!

    Anybody that works in the industry will know that these people really do exist, the overly logical (boring) geek and the one that just doesn’t care. They’ve got Jen absolutely spot on. In all the places I’ve worked I have had a manager that is IT literate at best and a finance manager at worst. Not one of my bosses has had techie experience.

    Unfortunately, to make it funny from “the IT side” it would have to have technical humour which would be lost on the vast majority and make the show a flop.

    Oh, and is it wrong to think that Jen’s “Hott”? ;)

  28. I was highly disappointed with the IT crowd. Considering it stars Chris Morris and written by the creator of Father Ted it was basically comedy for idiots.

    “Ooo, look at me I’ve just fallen over. ooo my head is bleeding *cue awful canned laughter* ooo, my toes are all crushed. There is a fire in the office. *cue even more canned laughter* Lets carry a grand piano up this flight of steep stairs. Hold this nail here while I knock it in with this oversized hammer.”

    The only funny part was the advert for the new emergency services phone number.

    Why not confine this show to More4 at 12 O clock on a Sunday and show Curb Your Enthusiasm at a more watchable hour.


    February 6, 2006 at 3:25 pm

  29. I agree that there are the types of IT people caricatured in the show that exist in most IT departments. However, I feel that the caricaturing could have been more subtle.
    I disagree that realism for “the IT side” would have made the show a flop. I truly believe that people of all sorts would find the comedy in how the IT crowd REALLY act.


    February 6, 2006 at 3:40 pm

  30. it was the gag about always making backups that stood out for me.
    Slapstick for the masses, and just techy enough to satisfy the
    minority :)


    February 6, 2006 at 5:53 pm

  31. The IT Crowd is approx. 62.1 ~ 64.7 percent funny (+/- .5), so it’s better than the usual purile entertainment of so-called “comedy.” It is not up to the standard of “laugh-out-loud,” which requires at minimum a metric not falling under 73.2%.



    February 6, 2006 at 5:54 pm

  32. lmao where’s that coming from Alex?

    Ryan B

    February 6, 2006 at 5:57 pm

  33. Wasn’t too impressed with the first couple of shows but found it mildly watchable. There’s a few insider jokes there but it’s mainly general slapstick so far. Will have to see from the next couple of episodes as to whether it will improve.

  34. I would just like to point out that the *canned* laughter as mention by Sean is infact real laughter. As they say in America “Its filmed infront of a live studio audience”. But then, apparently, Im an idiot.


    February 6, 2006 at 6:35 pm

  35. […] “The IT Crowd” ist eine relativ neue Comdey-Serie des englischen TV-Senders Channel 4. Ähnlich wie in “The Office” oder “Stromberg” spielt auch “The IT Crowd” in einem Büro. Genauer gesagt in der IT-Abteilung eines Büros. Hauptdarsteller sind drei Mitarbeiter dieser IT-Abteilung: Moss und Roy, zwei absolute Computernerds, denen das Reallife eher schwer fällt und zusätzlich noch Jen, die eigentlich sich überhaupt nicht mit Computern auskennt und nur deswegen in die IT-Abteilung gesetzt wurde, weil sie bei ihrem Vorstellungsgespräch ihre enorme Erfahrung mit PCs (Maus bewegen, klicken, doppelklicken) erwähnt hat. Die Idee der Serie finde ich eigentlich ziemlich originell, die Umsetzung ist jedoch nicht ganz so gelungen. Ein paar Lacher pro Episode kann die IT Crowd schon verbuchen, mehr allerdings nicht. Sehr nervig sind vor allen Dingen die eingespielten Lacher. Aber dank der guten Idee und einigen wirklich witzigen Jokes werde ich mir die Sendung auch weiterhin ansehen. Am besten ihr macht euch selbst ein Bild von “The IT Crowd” in dem ihr euch die ersten beiden Episoden anseht, was ihr hier tun könnt. Kommentar schreiben […]

  36. episode 3 is available on the c4 website… BUT only to UK users…

    tried a few uk based proxy’s but nada, hopefully someone can download the wmv/stream and put it up on another site or torrent :)


    February 6, 2006 at 7:23 pm

  37. It looks like its been taken off again if it was there, just have to keep checking every so often.

    Thanks for the heads up me101


    February 6, 2006 at 7:36 pm

  38. I loved it, sort of reminds me of ‘Black Books’ which i also loved. Unfortunatly the first link to episode 2 always stops at 82% for me (even with a download manager) I saw it a few days ago so its no biggy, just would of loved to see it again :P


    February 6, 2006 at 8:38 pm

  39. […] Many of you may know about the new UK comedy show called “The IT Crowd”. It is a hilarious TV show airing here in the UK on Channel 4 which is about 2 IT guys in a company and a new girl who claims she can use computers on her CV (resume) but can’t and when she gets the job she cannot do anything. It is typical British humour. Either you like it or you don’t. But what is special about is that you can download it for free before it airs through the Channel 4 website. But for now Channel 4 have removed the first 2 episodes, so you can download it here. I have watched the first 2 episodes and I think it is fantastic. It is sort of like ‘Little Britain’. […]

  40. I wouldn’t say all Americans don’t get it.. I laughed so hard I’m sure my neighbord heard it. :)
    Why can’t we get funny stuff like this on American TV? Instead we get crap like American Idol, Biggest Luser, and Survivor..


    February 6, 2006 at 9:48 pm

  41. Lol, just reading a bit about it, turns out the writer is the same one as the writer for ‘Black Books’ so that explains the similarites :D

  58. Will, I am sorry about mistaking the genuine howls of hysteria for canned laughter.

    Maybe the “live audience” were being prodded with hot pokers in all the places that the producers deemed it necessary.

    Oh and “Geek”, we also get the “Idol” franchise, both UK and US. We also get The Biggest Lusor [sic] and The Apprentice, both UK and US.

    However, it seems you get a raw deal, we give you The Office and the IT crowd and you supply us with Seinfeld, Curb, Frasier, Family Guy, Scrubs, My Name Is Earl, The Sopranos, the West Wing, Lost, Sex and The City, Six Feet Under, etc.

  76. […] Ahora me encuentro con que el Canal 4 (de Inglaterra, no vayan a creer que el otro) está produciendo una serie llamada The IT crowd, que aborda exactamente este tema. El programa cuenta la historia de el departamento de IT de una gran empresa de rostro anónimo (al menos hasta el segundo episodio no tenemos idea de la clase de empresa que se trata, pero esto no es ningún impedimento), similar a como las pintan en Dilbert. Moss y Roy trabajan en el sótano, atendiendo llamadas de soporte técnico y un buen día Jen, mujer que no sabe nada de computadoras, es contratada como jefe de IT debido a que en su currículum mencionó amplia experiencia en el uso de computadoras. Ninguno de los tres quiere que las cosas sean así, pero en vista de la política de trabajo en equipo que hay en la empresa, se ven obligados a convivir. Obviamente se trata de una serie cómica, con el humor inglés al que casi no estamos acostumbrados. Y aunque no es genial y seguramente no revolucionará el entretenimiento televisado, me divierte. Me ha hecho reír genuinamente. Hay múltiples referencias al mundo geek y IT, aunque algo bajadas de tono para ser asimiladas por un público más amplio. Lo mejor de todo es que Canal 4 ha decidido poner los primeros episodios disponibles en internet. Lo malo es que los ha bloqueado para aquellos que no vivimos en el Reino Unido. No importa, si quieres darles una ojeada ve aquí y descárgalos mientras son más o menos legales. […]

  77. The IT crowd rocks! Just waiting for episode 3 to finish downloading, hopefully won’t take that long…. I just got my broadband upgraded, to a 10Mb, altho It is with NTL and they can be unreliable… for example, I had no internet connection for the last 2 days, just got on now! :D

    February 10, 2006 at 7:53 am


    I suggest you try VLC media player, it has pretty much every codec built it, if this doesnt play it then the file is prolly currpt.

  88. Hi folks.

    I am in Australia and had the same problem with Ch 4 not allowing us to see the eps of this comedy because of our IP address. Thanks to this forum I am able to not only download, but watch in stream format (without changing anything – it just asks for a licence acceptance. This is so cool. What impressed me most is that – last week – I bookmarked this thread, and came back this week and Atariboy has simply added a new episode (4) to the thread. How cool is that? Atariboy, you rock!


    February 13, 2006 at 11:21 am

  89. Thanks for posting the link to the none DRM episode 4. Why did they start doing that? It completely knocks everyone that doesn’t use WMP out of the loop.

    erm. Extras sucked. Hard. Get off your unstable Ricky Gervais-powered high horse; The IT crowd is brilliant.

    on the Mac (pretty sure its still got the DRM attached to it when I get the torrent)

    Anyone know of a clean copy (sans DRM) floating out there?


    February 15, 2006 at 7:33 pm

    1- Go to

    2- Locate from the proxy lists a server from the UK

    3- Configure the UK proxy server as your default proxy server in your browser internet connection settings

    4- Test to see if you can now access the video downloads page, if no keep trying with others UK servers until you get access to the internet.

  107. At the time of writing the files are not protected by ip geography.

    In other words, once you access the video downloads page you can switch back to your normal internet settings in your browser and download the file, it will download faster as there are no intermediary (proxy) :)

  108. Ok, no need to go to the channel 4 site and configure proxies from outside the UK as I have put all the videos onto a minisite for the IT Crowd (includes all the episodes from 1 to 6)… the address is

    I think I did a pretty good design job as well 8-)… there is a 4000MB bandwidth limit on it right now, but on Wednesday I will be moving to my new dedicated server with unlimited bandwidth.

    Anyway hope this helps!

  110. I’ve updated the post with a link to

    but that site has the files with DRM on them for some episodes, for drm free you’ll have to use bittorrent.

    I’ve also added a link to the theme music again, hosted on


    February 27, 2006 at 12:52 pm

  111. Is it illegal to host the non-DRM ones in the U.S.?


    February 28, 2006 at 10:20 pm

  112. Yes i’m pretty sure it is, nice email address btw bill!!


    February 28, 2006 at 10:27 pm

  113. Haha, thanks. There’s a reason for that, if you’re interested, I can fill you in.


    March 1, 2006 at 4:41 am

  114. Go for it bill, i’m very intruiged.

    Did someone call you it as an insult as well?


    March 1, 2006 at 9:29 am

  115. LOL no. Here’s why I do it…

    My real address is the catch-all for my domain. So will come to me if isn’t already a real address.

    If I purchase something online from say Best Buy, I’ll use If I begin getting spam at, I know they gave out my address.

    Here for instance, I used because if I start getting spam it’s more likely that a spammer figured out how to get my address from here and I can simply black hole to stop getting the spam.

    That make sense?


    March 1, 2006 at 1:33 pm

  116. Yep, seems like a lot of effort tho, i find gmails spam filter works pretty darn well, so i dont need to go to that much trouble to stop spam.


    March 1, 2006 at 1:50 pm

  117. Nah, it’s not bad. Only real effort on my part is entering an email matching the site where I’m at.


    March 1, 2006 at 2:08 pm

  118. […] All six episodes can be legally downloaded from: (via : AtariBoy) […]

  119. I’ve put episodes 1-6 on our server:

  121. […] I’m a bit behind on this, but it seems appropriate to post now given the series has just finished airing on Channel 4. IT Crowd is a comedy about 3 misfits in the IT department of Reynholm Industries, a sprawling corporation. WikiPedia has an excellent entry on it but you’d kind of expect that! For those interested you can download IT Crowd here. […] » IT Crowd

  122. Sorry, I’ve had to change servers – please don’t link directly to the files, only to the post. I’m updatin regulary.


    March 5, 2006 at 10:47 am

  123. Atariboy… I think you have the same issues as on the “gaming food” post… a link has been left open or something, affecting mac users. Check it out for me :D

  124. Hello,
    the spanish translated script of the first episode.
    For all the spanish people that likes ITcrowd too.

    Denholm: Espero que no te resulte embarazoso, pero creo que lo mejor para hacer con un nuevo empleado es medirle con una larga y dura mirada.


    Jen: Entonces..

    Denholm: Primer día

    Jen: Sí

    Denholm: Asusta

    Jen: Sí

    Denholm: No tengas miedo

    Jen: Bueno, en realidad no tengo miedo

    Denholm: Pues deberías

    Jen: Bueno, tengo un poquito de miedo

    Denholm: Bueno, no lo tengas

    Jen: Decídase

    Denholm: Pues, aquí estás

    Jen: Sí, ya tengo ganas de empezar con…

    Denholm: Te voy a poner en I.T. porque en tu currículo dices que tienes mucha experiencia con ordenadores.

    Jen: Lo digo en mi currículo, sí. Tengo mucha experiencia con todo el tema de ordenadores, ya sabe, emails, mandar emails, recibir emails, borrar emails, y podría seguir.

    Denholm: Hazlo.

    Jen: La web. Usar un ratón, ratones, usar ratones. Hacer click, double click. La pantalla, por supuesto. El teclado. El… lo que va ahí abajo en el suelo.

    Denholm: El disco duro.

    Jen: Correcto.

    Denholm: Bien, desde luego pareces dominar la materia. Eso es seguro. Tengo un buen presentimiento sobre ti Jen y ellos necesitan un nuevo manager.

    Jen: Fantástico, entonces la gente con la que voy a trabajar, cómo son?

    Denholm: Los típicos tontos inadaptados!

    Roy: Hola IT.

    ¿Has probado a apagarlo y volverlo a encender?

    OK, bien, el botón de un lado. ¿Está encendido?

    Sí, necesitas encenderlo. Err, el botón se enciende.

    Sí, sabes cómo funciona un botón, no? No, no los de la ropa.

    Moss: Hola IT.

    Yuhuh. ¿Has probado a forzar un rearranque inesperado?

    Roy: no, haber, acabo de oírlo. No, esa es la música que sale cuando se enciende. No, esa es la música que sale cuando… Perdona, eres del pasado?

    Moss: Mira el disco engancha una función parcheando la tabla central del sistema, entonces no es seguro descargarlo a no ser otro hilo salte allí y haga lo suyo. Y tú no quieres que acabe en medio de memoria inválida. Hola?

    Roy: Ah sí?! Bien, porqué no bajas aquí y me lo dices, qué? Crees que te tengo miedo? No te tengo miedo, puedes bajar aquí cuando quieras y te estaré esperando! Se lo he dicho.

    Ya era hora de que te recuperases.

    Moss: Has tenido un trabajo?

    Roy: La chica de la quinta planta.

    Moss: Tu y ella, conectasteis?

    Roy: Define conectar.

    Moss: ¿Te siguió hablando después de arreglarle el ordenador?

    Roy: No. Y mientras estaba con ello, me apoyó la taza en la espalda.

    Moss: No

    Roy: Sip.

    Moss: Incredible.

    Roy: No nos tienen ningún respeto allí arriba. Ningún respeto en absoluto. Sólo somos drudgeons para ellos.

    Moss: Sí. Si existiesen los drudgeon, eso es lo que seríamos para ellos.

    Roy: Somos como muy amiguitos cuando tienen un problema con su impresora, pero una vez que ya está arreglada…

    Moss: Nos tiran como mermelada caducada.

    Roy: S?! Como mermelada caducada! Eso es lo que somos para ellos.
    Eh sabes qué, eso no tiene sentido porque la mermelada dura siglos.

    Hola IT. ¿Has probado a apagarlo y volverlo a encender?

    Jen: ¿Servicios unisex? Tenéis servicios unisex como en Ali McBeal.

    Denholm: Así es este lugar, Jen. Un montón de gente sexy que no trabaja demasiado. Y teniendo aventuras amorosas.

    Jen: Oh Dios mío mira qué vistas! Me siento como en la cima del mundo.

    Denholm: Bien Jen, aquí es donde te dejo.

    Jen: Ok, ¿a donde voy?

    Denholm: Todo el camino hasta el sótano. Buena suerte.

    Ascensor: Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor. Salga del Ascensor.

    Cartero: Oh. será un minuto.

    Jen: Oh, Dios mío! Dios mío!

    Jen: Hola. Hola.

    Roy: Sí, Creo que fue Tolstoy es que dijo…. ooh parece que tenemos visita. Disculpe, yo y Maurice estábamos metidos en una discusión bastante seria acerca de libros y así. Y no le oímos entrar.

    Moss: Espera un segundo, ¿dijiste que fue Tolstoy el que dijo eso?

    Roy: Ah, ya no importa eso Maurice.

    Moss: ¿Cuándo has leído a Tolstoy?

    Roy: Cállate Maurice.

    Moss: ¿Porqué hablas con esa voz tan extraña?. ¿Cuándo… no recuerdo esta conversación en absoluto.

    Jen: No quería molestarles, sólo quería venir aquí abajo…

    Roy: Oh, no seas tonta, tú nunca nos molestarías..

    No, err… mucha gente baja aquí a visitarnos.

    Moss: De que estás hablando. Quién baja? Qué gente? ¿Porqué me haces la señal secreta para callarme?

    Roy: ¿En qué podemos ayudarle?

    Jen: Ahora estoy a la cabeza de este departamento. ¿Es esta mi oficina?

    Roy: Pero qué… Yo estoy a la cabeza de este departamento!

    Moss: Pues creía que era yo.

    Roy: Es uno de los dos. Pero seguro que ella no. Voy a arreglar esto.

    Moss: Roy, tienes una herida en la cabeza. ¡Una herida en la cabeza!

    Roy: No quiero ser maleducado, pero no he sido informado de ningún cambio en este departamento.

    Jen: Oh no te han hablado de mí?

    Roy: No, y estamos muy bien aquí abajo muchas gracias. Somos más que capaces de cuidar de nosotros mismos.

    Jen: Ya. Ya. Sabes que estas cubierto de sangre?.

    Postman: Moss. Algo de Amazon.

    Moss: Ahh excelente. Ya sé lo que es. Es el nuevo Harry Potter. Tengo la edición para niños y la edición para adultos para comprobar que no hay diferencias en el texto.

    Roy: Lo siento pero no voy a ser capaz de tratar con esa mujer. Nadie más va a coger el teléfono. Supongo que yo lo cojeré. No, ese no es un teléfono. Me voy a tumbar un poco ahora.

    Jen: Adelante.

    Jen: Sí, Denholm. Sí, sí, no n-n-n-no, no, ellos van bien de momento. Sí, Creo que nos vamos a llevar bien. Sí, ya sé, muy bien entonces, cuídate, muy bien, sí, lo haré, sí, vale cuídate, cuídate, ok, adiós, adiós.

    bueno, hola, qué os puedo… qué puedo hacer por vosotros?

    Moss: Hola. Sólo me preguntaba: ¿quieres que te conecte el teléfono?

    Jen: No n-n-n-n-n-n-no. Ya funciona. Errm justo estaba hablando con Denholm.

    Moss: Pero cómo?

    Jen: Te importa, cerrarme la puerta?

    Moss: Oh sí, claro.

    Jen: Sí, desde el otro lado.

    Moss: Por supuesto. Así.

    Jen: Así es.

    Moss: Conmigo en el…

    Jen: Gracias.

    Moss: Oh.

    Estás bien?

    Roy: Ahh sí Moss estoy bien. La enfermera dijo que no me hice ningún daño serio.

    Moss: Estoy aquí de pie.

    Roy: Ya sé, ya sé, estoy de broma. Estoy bien. ¿Qué hacemos con ella?

    Moss: Bueno, acabo de entrar y estaba simulando una conversación.

    Roy: Sí?

    Moss: Sí, es un poco extraña.

    Roy: Qué es eso?

    Moss: Oh, sólo agua. A veces se me calienta el oído y esto ayuda a enfriarlo. Es muy extraña. ¿Te fijaste que ni siquiera s emocionó cuando vio este ZX81 original?

    Roy: Sí, eso sí que fue raro. Parece casi como si no supiera nada de ordenadores.

    Moss: ¿Qué?

    Roy: ¿Qué haces?

    Moss: Oh no te preocupes, por eso siempre me hago dos tazas de té. Bueno, de qué estábamos hablando?

    Roy: Oh de que ella no sabe nada de ordenadores.

    Moss: Qué?

    Roy: Ok, Definitivamente nos queremos librar de ella.

    Moss: De Acuerdo.

    Roy: Ok, este es el plan.

    Moss: Un plan. Deja que me ponga mis gafas un poquito más grandes. Ok, dispara.

    Roy: Ok, entramos.

    Moss: Cuándo?

    Roy: Ya sabes, como en un minuto.

    Moss: ¿Será suficiente tiempo para que me aprenda el plan?

    Roy: Sí, sabes qué, no debí usar la palabra plan. Te he emocionado demasiado.

    Moss: ¿Sería mejor palabra “treta”? Aunque es igual de emocionante, a lo mejor necesito estas.

    Roy: Todo lo que iba a decir era: entramos, digo un montón de cosas sin sentido sobre ordenadores y veremos si pica con eso.

    Moss: Sí, ahora veo por qué no querías usar la palabra plan.

    Roy: Déjame hablar a mí.

    Ohh! Ok, tenemos que hacerlo bien. Tenemos que estar tranquilos. No queremos entrar ahí a lo loco.

    Jen: Hola chicos. ¿En qué puedo ayudaros?

    Roy: Bien, nos preguntábamos, ahora que eres la jefa; ¿Te gustaría que accedieramos al suministrador de datos y te conectáramos a matrix?

    Jen: Hazlo todo.

    Roy: No sabes nada de ordenadores, admítelo!

    Jen: Deja de menoscabarme, Ahora entra ahí y haz algún trabajo de ordenadores. Yo iré en un minuto para comprobarlo.

    Roy: Ok, señora. Has ganado este asalto. Pero puedo esperar. Un día tendrás un desliz y créeme que estaremos ahí cuando lo hagas. Habrá alguna evidencia que probará sin lugar a dudas que no sabes nada de ordenadores.

    Jen: ¿Qué haces?

    Moss: Enchufarte el ordenador.

    Roy: Podría ser algo que digas o algo que hagas pero nos daremos cuanta y creeme que cuando nos demos cuanta va a ser un largo camino hacia abajo para tí, dulces mejillas.

    Moss: Se dará cuenta en un segundo.

    Jen: No puedo creer que os vayáis a chivar. Sois como un par de horribles viejas chismosas.

    Moss: ¿Qué ha dicho?

    Roy: Dijo que somos como horribles viejas chismosas.

    Moss: No puede ser.

    Denholm: Qué hay, chicos. Veo que tenéis algo que contarme.

    Roy: Err sí bien, es así.

    Denholm: Miraos. Mi equipo de IT. Jugadores en equipo, todos y cada uno de vosotros.

    Roy: Sí, bueno ella ahh…

    Denholm: No hay sitio para gente que no pueda actuar en equipo en mi equipo.


    Hola. Qué? pues si no podéis trabajar como un equipo estais todos despedidos. Así es, despedidos. Coged vuestras cosas y a la calle.

    Hola seguridad. Toda la gente de la planta cuarta está despedida. Acompañadles a la salida y hacedlo como un equipo. Recordad que sois un equipo y si no podeis actuar como un equipo vosotros también estáis despedidos.

    Dawn. Habla con reclutamiento, que busquen un equipo de seguridad que pueda trabajar como un equipo. Puede que tengan que acompañar al actual equipo de seguridad hasta la salida por no actuar como un equipo.

    Equipo. Equipo. Equipo. Equipo. Equipo. Equipo. Incluso me encanta decir la palabra equipo. Pensareis que esta es una foto de mi familia. Uh uh. Es el equipo A: Body, Doyle, Tiger, y el hombre de la joyas. Todos ellos. Bueno, qué me queríais decir?.

    Moss: Pues que esto no está funcionando.

    Roy: Hahaha. Está bromeando.

    Moss: Pero dijiste..

    Denholm: No está funcionando?

    Roy: Oh no! Nos llevamos tan bien como una gran casa en llamas.

    Moss: Mi oído se está calentando!

    Roy: No. sabes qué, nos tendríamos que marchar ya porque, ya sabes, eres un hombre ocupado y ya te hemos quitado demasiado tiempo. Jen, me sujetas la puerta?

    Jen: Claro Roy!

    Denholm: Entonces, ¿por qué habéis venido al pricipio?

    Roy: Errmmm. te hemos puesto un sistema de activación por voz en el ordenador. Err creo que te va a gustar. Igual le cuesta un poco coger el tono correcto de voz pero adelante. Muchas gracias, adiós.

    Denholm: Gracias. Qué emocionante.

    Hola. Hola ordenador. Hola. Hola. Hola ordenador.

    Roy: Quiero decir, qué haces? Obviamente no sabes nada de ordenadores.

    Jen: No. Pero bueno, puedo aprender. Ya sabéis. Quiero decir, por ejemplo, Moss, me podrías explicar lo que estás haciendo ahora mismo.

    Moss: Encantado. Estoy trabajando en un trozo de código muy simple.

    Jen: Oh, ya veo. Oh Dios, no estoy mintiendo otra vez, no entendí nada de eso, no sé nada de ordenadores. Soy absolutamente inútil para vosotros, tendría que recoger e irme a casa.

    Laura: Hola. Está Roy por aquí?

    Roy: Hola señorita. ¿Se ha perdido? ¿Cómo puedo ayudarla? Soy Roy.

    Laura: Pues aquí estoy!

    Roy: En la cara no! En la cara no!

    Laura: Bien, Igual esto te enseña cómo tratar a la gente con un poc de respeto.

    Roy: ¿Es por lo que hablamos antes por teléfono?

    Jen: Oh Dios mío. ¿Son de Manolo?

    Laura: Oh, sí.

    Jen: Son preciosos. ¿Son caros?

    Laura: No, no, no. Los compré en rebajas.

    Jen: Oh Dios, muy lista. Yo nunca tengo tanta suerte como para encontrar esas gangas.

    Laura: Bien, Deberíamos ir de compras.

    Jen: Sí, sería fantástico. Sí, encantada de conocerte.

    Roy: Encantado de conocerte.

    Moss: Wow! Has arreglado toda la situación.

    Jen: Qué situación? Oh esa, sí. Oh Dios mío, ¿pasa esto a menudo?

    Moss: Las palizas vienen con bastante regularidad, sí. Yo diría que unas dos veces por semana.

    Roy: Oh no es tan malo.

    Moss: Venga Roy, es bastante malo.

    Jen: A lo mejor yo podría ayudar con esto, ya sabes. Quiero decir, soy una persona de gentes, y la gente como vosotros necesita una persona para tratar con gente, una persona de gentes como yo. Oh Dios mío, vienen las ideas, aquí están pasando cosas.
    OK, OK, qué diríais, si os digo que tengo un plan para elevar vuestra apreciación arriba en 100%. ¿Qué diríais?

    Moss: No se puede hacer. Estas loca.

    Jen: ¿Qué dirías Roy?. Ok, necesito un rotulador y papel.

    Roy: De verdad, de verdad, era una historia real. Increíble.

    Chica: No sé por qué no salimos con vosotros los de IT más a menudo. Sois divertidísimos!

    Roy: Sí que lo somos!

    Jen: Tendríais que bajar más a menudo. Deberías ver esto como una nueva era para Industrias Reynholm.

    Roy: “Una nueva era para Industrias Reynholm”

    Oh, si queréis hoy algo realmente gracioso, deberías oír qué nos pasó a Moss y a mí cuando estábamos tan borrachos en ?msterdam que Moss perdió sus gafas. Moss! Moss! Ven aquí, ven aquí. Cuéntales esa historia de cuando estábamos borrachos en ?msterdam.

    Moss: De verdad?

    Roy: Sí, sí. Oh es genial, es una gran historia, os va a encantar. voy a por otra botella de vino.

    Office guy: Bien, voy entonces.

    Moss: Muy bien, una noche bebimos mucho, y err… estábamos tan borrachos que decidimos contratar unas prostitutas.
    Pero cuando llegamos al hotel estábamos tan asustados para hacer nada que las llevamos a la feria. Eran muy agradables. Al final sólo nos cobraron la mitad, pero tuvimos que pagar todos los viajes.

    Roy: Haha! Oh no es esta la mejor historia?

    Moss: Me dijiste que nunca contara esa historia a nadie.

    Roy: ¿De qué hablas? Es una historia genial, y cuando tú te metiste al canal. ¿Ha llegado a la parte del hombre de la barca?

    Moss: Oh, querías decir la historia en la que yo pierdo mis gafas.

    Roy: Sí. ¿Qué historia creías que era? ¿Moss? ¿Qué has dicho? ¿Qué has dicho?

    Jen: Está bien para vosotros dos. Vosotros sois pirañas sociales. Yo generalmente soy una persona muy popular.

    Roy: La chica de antes, que quiso matarme con su zapato. ¿Cogió alguien su número?

    Moss: Fue un día muy agradable en la feria. Con Brandy y Crystal.

    Jen: Hola IT. ¿Has probado a apagarlo y volverlo a encender?

    Denholm: Hola! Hola! Hola! Hola!

  127. […] Just watched the first episode of the new Channel 4 series The IT Crowd. I lost track of the number of coffee-spewage moments. I’m fortunate enough to work in a place that’s not quite that bad, but there’s plenty enough that rings true. And it’s awesome to see in-jokes like EFF stickers, a Flying Spaghetti Monster poster, and the Perl camel just sitting there without need of explanation. More info on how to download is here. […]

  128. Right, all apologies, despite my qualification in computer studies (Scottish Standard Grade 1994 – I got a 2, God bless the 90’s), I have very little idea what much of this means. If anyone can help an ignoramous like me to get these downloaded I’d be very grateful. I’m currently in Oz, if that will help you help me. Please explain it as if I were over 80, petal. Thanks and if there are any other sites for things like 15 storeys high etc., that would make my day.
    P.S. Atariboy, you have achieved God status!

  130. […] The IT Crowd is a British computer sitcom thats just great. To be able to watch this show you are going to have to find a way to get the show via bittorrent or other sources because you can’t download it from there website because you have to be in the UK and I just found out that the 3rd episode has DRM in it. I just found the link to get the 3rd show without drm IT Crowd ep. 3 You can go here to get episodes 1&2 Via|Digg […]

  135. A few questions from a blog idiot

    How do you keep the spammers from eating you alive? i\’ve seen blogs with nothing but spam postings.

    How do you keep some left wing extremist from posting racist or defamatory rhetoric? and if you cant stop them, what are you legally liabel when they do?

    can viruses be posted to blogs?


    January 18, 2007 at 9:00 pm

  136. Just thought I’d point out that I found it very very funny, that the lack of a sense of humor is a key indicator that the poster is most likely not finding it funny because he one of those guys represented in the show, how are clueless as to what’s funny. (aka Moss) .

    I love my IT geeks..seriously. I married one! However, I do recognize that around the globe, they all fit a few smaller subcategories of which 2 are represented on the show. There is also the gamer-geek and the rennaissence-geek who will often spar with the comic book-geek in arguments ..serious arguments…over whether Mario is a reincarnated representation of Frodo. Many of these types are so determined to PROVE they are NOT a geek that they make themselves into complete jerks. You seldom see these guys laughing and it’s these guys who post how stupid something is just to show how smart they are…hehe. Those early complainers on this page are such types I believe. Every IT person I hang out with thinks this show is absolutely a hoot, and we all quote the show all the time.

    I’m so excited to see the show continue and hope it has a long run. Here in SF Bay area I live surrounded by computer geeks of every race, creed and color. Hubby got his hands on copies of the show and we’ve memorized them now. It’s his RINGTONE even!
