    Absolutely love this show. Havent had this much fun since AbFab. As a neophyte 3rd world denizen, a sitcom as brilliant as IT crowd certainly lights up my fire. Please keep the BitTorrent streams comming. If you think China is far away, then you should try LA. The cello performance was absolutely brilliant :)

    It was hilarious.

    Cory,

    If you are in China, try these two places to access outside of the Great Firewall of China:

    Is it my imagination, or at 17:21 in the show, there’s a copy of MAKE Magazine on the corner of the desk behind Roy?

    Cool!

    Here are more direct links to the law revue piracy parodies, which Barry referred to above.

    Moss is a ghost ! He’s his own brother !

    It was all a dream…?

    Mashable had a link to a mashed up version of the anti-piracy video parodied here mixed with content from a Strawberry Shortcake video it was seen on.
    Scary Strawberry Shortcake Warning

    Thanks for the IT Crowd updates, it was a long year and a half waiting for it to return.

    Does anyone know what the vinyl bird figure on Roy’s desk is? I vaguely remember seeing it on Boing Boing. I think it’s from a cartoon but I’m not sure…

    They have lots of geek in-jokes in the office. For example, when you see Maurice sitting at his desk, behind him you can see the Flying Spaghetti Monster parody of the Jesus fish.

    They also have a Commodore PET in the office.

    And they have an O’Reilly poster on the wall.

    Enjoy this episode, it’s really great.

    Do you know, there is a twist at the end… ;)

    Yep, likely to be funnier if you’re a Brit. It quite closely parodies a real advert, and the policeman’s helmet detail is (perhaps) a twisted reference to the Jeeves & Wooster stories by P.G. Wodehouse.

    Love this show! Thanks for the torrent link.

    Any links to a Youtube-esque video of it? I could care less for a 200mb video that I watch once. Plus, don’t want to hog the home’s bandwidth.

    Fantastic as always. Good to see that Roy now has a “Father Dick Byrne”-style arch nemesis.

    “milk-nose-snortingly funny”? It was clever, yes.

    Though, the British do have a fairly difference sense of humor than I do. I found it clever, that’s all.

    As a person that finds those anti-piracy ads on DVDs unbelievably annoying I was in tears laughing at the parody, espescially the stealing it back bit at the end. I also liked the german cannibal’s rendition of the IT Crowd theme song on cello at the end during the credits. I love this show.

    Nice to see my homesewing logo posted on the wall at 1.37.

    “milk-nose-snortingly funny”???
    I suppose… if you like laugh tracks. I found it painful to watch.

    some good piracy spoofs from University of Sydney Law Revue at Freedom to Differ too.

    Is the devil poster in their office by Coop? I also dig the Drinky Crow model.
