    Was thinking the same thing, two main characters Moss (Richard Ayoade) and Mr. Renholm (Jr.? the son who takes over at the end of Season 1) are also main characters in Darkplace. I really enjoyed the IT Crowd but Darkplace is waaaay funnier and is more unique.

    There's also a spinoff "Man to Man with Dean Learner" (Richard Ayoade's character from Darkplace) where he interviews "famous" people all of whom are played by the guy who plays "Garth Marenghi" (I think "Garth Marenghi" is on one of the episodes too).

    Anyway, Richard Ayoade is my favourite guy in both shows... and it's really hard to believe that it's the same guy who plays "Dean Learner"/"Thorton Reed" and "Moss", especially because he looks way older in Darkplace even though it was made 3 years earlier.
    ALSO, Dean Learner is in "The Watch"... the ONLY reason i'm hyped for that movie

    Man to Man with Dean Learner was hit and miss... but when it was funny, it was downright hilarious

    I found IT Crowd didn't really get interesting until they introduced Douglas Renholm (aka, Dr. Lucien Sanchez)... when they brought him on, the hilarity of the show skyrocketed... even the Irish dude, who i hated in the first season became funnier

    Noel Fielding coming on as Richmond was awesome too

        Anne Hathaway is delicious, I'd definitely have her on my list.

        Along with Kate Upton...
        I'd also like to bombity-bomp Amanda Seyfried more than a few times. She is deliciously sexy. Apparently, She's nude in that" gone" movie. Which I'm going to watch ASAP!

        Btw, question 19 is confusing especially with the different kinds of answers.

            Quite frankly and no offence to the young-ins here, but I like chattin' basketball while wearing my Depends and enjoying a nice bowl of prunes. Certainly keep me regular and spry.

              I'll definitely have to check out DarkPlace. IT Crowd is just so full of hijinks and hilarity. It's a perfect example of a show that you can watch a billion times and every time you will get a good chuckle out of it. Even Seinfeld for me has started to lose its lustre (although I've probably scene every episode at least 20 times each). One thing I did notice though is that when you try to explain why you're laughing at something (that reminded you of IT Crowd) you get a bunch of blank looks. That show is so zany that words can't describe it.

              The theme song of that show has been my ringtone for years.
              your pal,

                The Street Countdown episode and the Douglas's "girlfriend" episode stand out the most to me as the most hilarious..

                    20) Assume your still single (if your currently not), celeb wise who would you date? Not sure she is a celebrity but LF's girlfriend - Jesus H. Christ she is ridiculous.
                    I have to assume you are kidding about Christie? While he was a solid player I cant imagine anyone actually finding him to be their favourite Rap of all time. If not kidding, what was it about him (or perhaps his wife as he acknowledged here every 2 minutes) that you liked?

                            Absolutely not. Gordon Ramsay is bad ass and great entertainment. I just with they didn't censor half the shit he says. Would make for a more entertaining show.

                              • We seem to have a few common places (at least in Canada) where RR members are residing. Perhaps we should have a get together for a game or two (or possibly a playoff game) to show our camaraderie hahaha... I know my gf hates it when I watch the Raptors because if they're losing I'm in no mood to joke around. Sometimes I take the games a little too hard. Hahaha... I know, I should mellow down.
