The good Doctor cameos on 'The I.T. Crowd'. It may have taken till episode 5 to spot it but as you can clearly see, the Dr Horrible teaser poster does appear on the set of the Channel 4 sitcom.

The main set of pics can be found here. How did this come to happen? Well click here for some background info.

Awesome! Had to look a bit, but very cool to see. I've been trying to keep an eye out in the background when we watch the episodes. Fantastic link, I just finished watching the latest episode, and had my usual "I wish we could see better what they've got as set decorations" conversation with my wife. =)

The poster is a bit more noticeable in this shot, I think.
Awesome! I love the IT Crowd. But I have to find it online as I am American :-(
I spotted it in the first episode. I'm so sad.
gossi's right, I saw it in the first ep, too. click here for a screenshot from ep 3x01
...as I am American :-(


Aww, c'mon, ShanshuBugaboo. Less of the sad smilies. That's nothing to be ashamed of.

I'm kidding! I love America! It's where all the best television comes from!
Apart from 'Fawlty Towers'.

Jesus, good eyes those that spotted it as the programme actually broadcast, following Chris O'Dowd's hilarious facial expressions normally takes all my attention. That set is like a one room geek culture museum. They should, like, charge people to view it or maybe try some sort of advertising based income stream.

And Moss is boss. Fact.
The only reason I spotted it was because it was right behind Roy's head when he was talking to Jen in her office. Last night's episode felt like a return to form.
Apart from 'Fawlty Towers'.


Well, yeah. And Blackadder. And got to give us points for Doctor Who, as well, I guess.

Now if we could just hide the fact that we were responsible for Supermarket Sweep.
"This is not the extraordinarily cheesy daytime game-show you're looking for" *waves hand*

(think it worked ?)

And yep, there're loads of UK shows you could make a case for, I mention 'Fawlty Towers' just because it's incontrovertable. Seriously, I think space-time tears if anyone genuinely considers it lesser. You have been warned ;).

Last night's episode felt like a return to form.

It was a cracker but for myself I think this might be the most consistent series so far and that either ep 2 or 3 (can't decide) could be the funniest episode yet.
Not sure that I could even joke about Fawlty Towers not being one of the greatest and funniest television shows ever made. Space-time remains intact for another day.
Arcane,

Aww, c'mon, ShanshuBugaboo. Less of the sad smilies. That's nothing to be ashamed of.

Oh I'm not ashamed...anymore. Much. It's just that there's no IT Crowd here, and I need my Moss fix! I was able to find last night's episode online though. Hilarious to say the least, though Moss' "reboot" in episode 3 may have been my favorite IT moment ever.

So smiley faces all around :-)

You know, I was never that big a fan of Fawlty Towers.

*Runs off to hide in my Spacetime-colapse-proof-shelterę while laughing maniacally*

...and is then canceled right when it's getting to the good bit.

Not that I'm bitter about, you know, a dozen different shows.
Oh dear. Is this yet another thing I have to add to my Netflix queue? I really need an additional life just for reading and watching TV.
jcs, it's at least a British sitcom, so there's only six episodes a season. And, if you're in America, I don't think it's actually made it on to DVD out here yet.
I recently started watching The IT Crowd and love it! I'm only about halfway through the second season now, but I'll have fun trying to spot the poster later on.
And, if you're in America, I don't think it's actually made it on to DVD out here yet.

Nope, you can't get any of the dvds here I don't think...though I haven't checked recently. They are the wrong region. It's kind of ironic that they won't release the dvds here, considering they were planning on making an American version of the show--before the writer's strike. I'm personally glad they didn't. They were going to have Moss from the British version and then two new people playing Roy and Jen! Here's a promo pic.

Thank goodness it didn't happen. As much as I love the IT Crowd and wish it were on tv here, I would not want a new version with a different Roy and Jen.
Yeah, I was dreading the remake. Far too often, shows just don't translate well across the ocean.

The original is- or was, I haven't checked lately- showing on IFC.
To me, the IT Crowd is one of those shows that seems a little dry and awkward at the time you're watching it.
But then you'll be standing in line at the checkout, or driving in your car, and you'll remember a random line and it will absolutely crack you up.
For example, I scared people in the gym the other day by randomly yelling "Peter File!" and then laughing my head off.
I've got a ruddy gun!

Oh, and I can never see a comp-u-ter without thinking of: "This flipping circuit board, Jen. Some chump has run the data lines right through the power supply. Amateur hour! I've got tears in my eyes."

I know what you mean missb
Fawlty Towers, but also The Office and Monty Python. Q.E.D.
