The IT Crowd

I’m absolutely loving The IT Crowd! Obviously, Graham Linehan is a god among comedy writers (Father Ted? Black Books? The Day Today? Jam?), but this one’s quite… personal.
Scene: Jen, Roy and Moss are in the basement.
Jen: Can I ask you a question?
Moss (scurrying back to his PC): Fire away
Jen: How can you live like this?
Moss (typing): How… can…
Roy: DON’T GOOGLE THE QUESTION!
Oh my God, I live my life through Google; if it’s not on Google it doesn’t exist. I was poleaxed when I saw that gag!
They have my uplighter as well. Ever since I bought this thing from IKEA three years ago I’ve seen it everywhere – other people’s houses, conference centres, Cambridge colleges, TV shows and films… fair enough, an uplighter for under a tenner, you can see how it’d appeal.
