The greatest geek TV show of all time has made its third episode available for download, and the third episode is even funnier than the first two.
Yesterday I blogged about The IT Crowd, a new sitcom from Graham Linehan, the creator of Father Ted, about socially maladjusted sysadmins and their compulsive liar of a boss.
Britain's Channel 4, the network that produced The IT Crowd, has been posting the episodes for free download a week in advance of the airing date, which is great news. Unfortunately, C4 takes countermeasures to keep you from downloading and watching it — the shows are streamed as DRMed Windows Media Videos, and region-locking prevents you from accessing them if you're outside of the UK.
Lucky for us, DRM doesn't work! The shows have been online and available via Bittorrent download within a short while of being posted to the C4 site. I'm delighted to be able to see these shows; I can't remember when I laughed so much.
Episode three is a hoot — it's the romance episode, and like the earlier episodes, it's great farce comedy in that it lards absurdity upon absuridty, culminating in one of the great shit-on-my-forehead clown-beat-down scenes of all time.
Update: This is also on Filecloud — thanks, Marvin!
