The IT Crowd

The IT Crowd is set in the offices of Reynholm Industries, a fictional British corporation in central London. It focuses on the shenanigans of the three-strong IT support team located in a dingy, untidy and unkempt basement – a great contrast to the shining modern architecture and stunning London views enjoyed by the rest of the organization. The obscurity surrounding what the company does serves as a running gag throughout the series – all that is known is that the company bought and sold ITV, and once made part-year profits of ‘Eighteen Hundred Billion Billion’. Douglas Reynholm claims his father, Denholm Reynholm, described the IT department as being run by “a dynamic go-getter, a genius and a man from Ireland”. The first season of the IT Crowd sees the entry of Jen, and how geeks such as Roy and Moss can build up a relationship with someone hopelessly computer-illiterate like Jen.
