The second episode of season two of The IT Crowd just aired on the UK's Channel 4: "Return of the Golden Child," and it's keyboard-destroyingly funny. The IT Crowd is the nerd sitcom from Graham Linehan, who created the funniest TV show ever, Father Ted. In "The Golden Child," Denholm's death and Roy's obsession with his own mortality provide fodder for a series of very good inappropriate funeral jokes, mobile phone humor, and so on. It's vintage IT Crowd. Channel 4 has some kind of ridiculous, DRM-based streaming service in the UK, but I can't get it in China (I'm here for a meeting), so I just downloaded the torrent and laughed myself sick.
