I Know All These People 

Have you tried turning it off and back on again?

Totally formulaic. Terribly unbalanced. Seriously 2 dimensional. The cast is too small for more than caricature; each of the three-plus-one non-extras ends up trying to contain too many stereotypes.

The IT Crowd is the best damn thing on television. And we don't even have one.

Luckily, it's not on American television: it's on Brit telly Channel 4, it's being released via UK-only protected format as it gets shown, and it's already been ripped for international consumption in a variety of formats. Yay, internet.

I'm in too deep to know for sure how much of the hilarity springs from my own geekitude. But from here, two guys, a noob manager, and their upstairs boss manage to pin down the spectrum of corporate IT with slapstick perfection to rival Red Dwarf. The dumb only makes it smarter. Or something like that.
