  • Read this and got super excited RE: IT crowd.. I knew that episode as “The Last Byte” and watched it in September.
    Oh well, nothing to do now but cry 🙁

    • This right here.
      I thought it was a new episode, but no. It’s the special that the UK aired, but as you have mentioned Tubby, and is mentioned on Wiki as well, there was another name for it floating around.
      Cue sadface.

  • The IT Crowd reunion special aired in the UK a while back, I believe. It’s been on Youtube for some time now. Worth a look when it airs here – it’s certainly on par with the rest of the show! 🙂
