The IT Crowd is my new favorite TV show. The first season’s six episodes can be downloaded pretty freely – here’s one collection of links to downloadable files, for example. Much of it is available on YouTube if you don’t mind low resolution video – here’s the first part of episode 1.

It’s a British series about two IT geeks in the basement of a large, abusive corporation who get a new boss, a woman who lied about her IT experience on her resume. It’s hysterical, as funny as anything I’ve seen on television for years. Here’s Cory Doctorow’s description of it on Boing Boing. Although there are lots of in-jokes for geeks, the appeal should be universal. An American version has just begun filming, following the example of The Office.

Look for it, download it!
