10 memorable bits from The IT Crowd

When I read that Channel 4's The IT Crowd debuted ten years ago this week, I thought, "Great! This will be a fun and easy topic to write about." As a dedicated fan of this slightly surreal, smart and sometimes slapsticky sitcom, I wouldn't need to do any research. In fact, I could talk about Jen Barber (Katherine Parkinson), Maurice Moss (Richard Ayoade) and Roy Trenneman (Chris O'Dowd), the staffers of Reynholm Industries' subterranean IT department, ad nauseam. Easy peasy, right? Not at all!
