Episode 1: Yesterday's Jam

Summary

The arrival of a `relationship manager' causes ructions among the staff in an IT department - especially when they discover she knows nothing about computers. However, having a woman in the team soon proves to have its benefits. First episode of the comedy, starring Chris O'Dowd, Katherine Parkinson and Richard Ayoade.

Review

The IT Crowd, written by Father Ted’s Graham Linehan, was a bit of an oddity when it was first broadcast in 2006 and didn’t really set the world alight.

But it is a classic grower, one of those special little shows that audiences come to appreciate – certainly,in my case, years later, after watching repeats on the 4Music channel. Of course, it also made big stars of its cast, Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade and Katherine Parkinson.

In the first of all six episodes of the opening series showing tonight, Parkinson is Jen, a “relationship manager”, who arrives in the IT department of a huge corporation, to the consternation of lazy geeks Roy (O’Dowd) and Moss (Ayoade).
