I Am Now in With <i>The IT Crowd</i>

For years, I've been hearing how good the British series The IT Crowd is. "It's so good," everyone kept telling me, "that they're talking about doing an American version!"

Computer Geeks: A Not-So-Proud TV Tradition

After watching last night's hysterical Season 3 premiere of The IT Crowd, I started thinking about computer geeks on TV, and how there really aren't that many. There are a lot of science geeks, like the physicists of Lost and The Big Bang Theory, but usually it's all about the math, and all they need is a dry erase board. In honor of the unsung heroes of the keyboard (computer, not piano), I thought I'd run down some of my favorites, past and present.
