Funny Show

On the Singapore Airlines flight from Johannesburg the other day I had already watched all the movies I wanted to see ("Gran Torino", "Watchmen" and "Que Parezca un Accidente"; the first and third were great, the second one, not so much) but there was still time to kill before landing so I started to flip around the other channels (God bless airlines with multiple on-demand entertainment channels!!). That's how I stumbled across a British comedy series that had me laughing so hard that I became very self conscious.

The show is called The IT Crowd, and it concerns the IT department in a British conglomerate, which consists of a nerdy genius, a female director and a man from Ireland. Having enjoyed the two episodes on the plane so much, I of course managed to find the whole series (all three seasons that exist to date) here in Beijing and have already watched the first seven episodes with J2. Each episode causes us to laugh so hard that we run the risk of asphyxiation, so suffice it to say that it's very funny. If you get a chance, I strongly recommend that you watch it!
