Ubuntu on the IT Crowd

Recommended Posts

There have always been lots of good references on the IT Crowd, but this is apparently from the first episode of the new series, which I haven't seen.

In case you don't know what to be looking for, it's:

From the article itself:

Some of the more-hip readers amongst you have tweeted my attention towards this little beauty: -You can clearly see an Ubuntu logo on the the back of one of the characters? monitor from Channel 4?s geek comedy ?The IT Crowd? (which has just started a new series o?er here.)

Nice spot!

The first episode of the next series can be seen on 4OD at http://www.channel4.com/explore/bt/index.html already (it requires registration/login but you can go via bug me not) for UK residents. Good stuff.

IFC my friend ;)

I've only seen the first 3 seasons I work in an IT department and that show is always referenced by someone in my department.

The first few seasons are available on Netflix Instant Watch. I've found "other sources" for the most recent one, and yes, the Ubuntu logo was one of the first things I spotted. The only thing I hate about the showis the stupid idea of only having 6 episode per season (series for people in the UK).

edit: and if you look around hard enough, you might just find the un-broadcast pilot of the planned American version of the show. It has the same guy playing Moss, but some other unknown actors playing the other characters. There are still plans for a full American adaptation of the show (hopefully not as bad as the adaptation of 11th Hour though!).
