They Don’t Get IT


Channel 4 have just launched a new comedy series called The IT Crowd. Given that Graham Linehan (Father Ted, Black Books) is involved it might be worth a look. Anyway, yesterday Rachel reminded me about it and asked if I’d seen the first episode. Of course due to having goldfish like memory I hadn’t. But no problem I thought; in a vaguely innovative move Channel 4 are actually releasing the episodes on the web a week before they’re shown. Simple then; just go grab whatever I’ve missed on their site. Urm, except you can’t. It seems that they take them down again at some (indetermined) time. Why? They’ve put them out there like that so leave them up. This just makes there whole “innovative” decision look silly, especially when a major part of their target market is probably more tech savvy than average. Bahhh.

Hint, in situations like this BitTorrent is your friend ;-)
