The IT Crowd or The Trailer Park Boys

Recommended Posts

I have some extra money. I thought I'd use it to buy a funny series that both me and my wife might like. We haven't seen much of either show. In fact, I've seen about two skits from the IT Crowd and have only heard the song "Liquor and Whores" from the Trailer Park Boys.

For those who have seen both, what do you like or dislike about both shows?

Haven't seen much of The Trailer Park Boys, but The IT Crowd is absolutely brilliant! One of my favorite shows ever. Season 1 is a little slow, but in seasons 2 and 3 they really figure out how to make a hilarious tv show.

Why not just get Netflix and watch both?

I'm the opposite of Yoda, haven't seen the IT Crowd but I'm a big fan of Trailer Park Boys.

Mostly because of the Ricky character:

Both shows are two of my all- time favorites, but if you had to choose one, I'd choose the IT Crowd. I rarely laugh out loud at anything, but the handicap episode made me laugh so hard, I had tears in my eyes.

I like owning the DVD seasons of series that I enjoy.

I think it's going to be the IT Crowd. What little I've seen of it seems to be great. I haven't seen enough of the Trailer Park Boys yet to really make that investment. Although I have to admit "Liquor and ..." is a very catchy song.

I'll probably watch a few more portions of the show on facebook before making a determination on that one.

My wife LOVES Father Ted and I think the IT Crowd is from the same director or creator or something, so that seems to be right direction to take right now.

TPB. The IT Crowd has been done before.

I was in Halifax for school when TPB was filmed and got to know some of the cast. They are a genuinely talented bunch with a unique take on certain Maritime living. Watch it solely for the fact that it is one of a kind and can never be duplicated. We are funnier than the Brits.

Get Netflix too.

Yes...'The Work Outing' was fabulous!

I purchased the IT Crowd, with the expectation The Trailer Boys will be next. I might have to check out The Work Outing.

Apparently the Work Outing is one of the episodes for the IT Crowd.

Start from the begining and work up to that episode.

Might not be as entertaining if you don't know the characters.

We'll start from the beginning. I saw the post mentioning the episode and thought it was a different show at first. I did a search on what I thought was a show and found out it was an episode. That's how I found out my mistake. I don't even have the DVDs yet.

We always go from start to finish.

It's funny - I got the IT Crowd (every season, every episode) at the time of these posts and have them sitting right on my DVD pile to watch, and we have yet to watch them. I think we both know we're going to love the show once we start watching them, but haven't began for some reason.

Maybe that should be on the to-do list this soon.

TPB is amazing.

The Microphone Assassin is probably my favourite episode. Johnathon Torrens is so good as J Roc.

He really should have gotten his own show. What a brilliant character.

We finally started watching the IT Crowd. The second episode was completely hillarious.

I'm going to have to memorize that phone number....

0118 999 881 99 9119 7253

Yeah, we are going to like this show a lot.

Just in case you need it for emergencies...

:-)

I don't know if the joke is funnier if you know that they changed the number for directory enquiries here a few years ago from 192 and opened it up to shed loads of different competitors - generally all of which had similar numbers (variations on 118 xxx); there followed shed loads of TV ads all trying to make their number the unforgettable one - I still can't remember any of the bloody things...
